RE: Problems and Opportunities at

Sorry Ė slight misunderstanding, I read the earlier mail too quickly.

Iím with you, exactly. Lets not have multiple formats.

But It would be a reasonable aspiration that the format we use meets all (or at least more of Ö) the requirements, or extensible in some way, and isnít trapped by assumptions from just one implementation.

I am confused - what about this isn't public?

Also, I am not super enamored of trying to support multiple management formats.  .htaccess is authoritative but complex.  I don't mind one alternative for people who don't want to mess with the .htaccess complexities.  CSV has the advantage of being a W3C Recommendation.  Is there a reason to support more than one?

Other implementations are possible (e.g. the CSIRO PIDsvc, so a neutral format for redirection rules would be good (i.e not just .htaccess or purl format) .

Yeah, let's get this going.

So looking at the purl database schema we don't really need the group and user stuff to start with (although that could be added to the README).

the purls table itself should be sufficient to start. We can find the different "type" values in the<> source code I think?
