Hi All,

The tile of the BP is:
Document Metadata
Metadata documentation should be published together with the data

For me it means that one should document the metadata. It is not talking
about an instance of metadata provided with data but the documentation
about the metadata that explains not the instance but how to understand the

I think that these are 2 different BPs:
Provide a metadata document (a document with metadata)
Provide metadata documentation (meta metadata)

We are not suggesting how to document metadata (maybe in the case of
vocabularies we would suggest). Could be a file explaining the structure of
a CSV file, all the fields presented in a page, etc...

Best Regards,
