Hi Mark,

Just to say, the drag and drop application profile tool - seems like a very
good example of a system to allow - relatively non-technical users (or
groups of users) to create their own application profile(s), i.e. where they
want/need to draw elements or sets of elements from diverse schemas - and
view those that others have created.

The topic and approach is still very current in the UK academic metadata
community... so might have some particular significance for say the Learning
Object type use case...

Paul

Hi Mark, Rachel et al.,

The DESIRE project has been post-funding since 1999 or so. Not sure what's
up with the Schema's Forum site, but I think the same folks are behind the
CORES project, see http://www.cores-eu.net/registry/

Maybe someone from UKOLN will reply with more details from their side. In
Bristol, both Dave Beckett(ILRT) and Damian Steer (via ILRT) were involved
with (CORES/Schema) client/server tool development for schema registries.
I think you know them both; cc:'d in case they have any more info.

cheers,

Dan (ex-DESIRE project person)
