Subject: Re: [opendocument-users] OpenOffice as vehicle for industry standards

Who all is involved in the Technical Committee's discussions of metadata 
enhancements, especially those with expertise in metadata?

I can see that there has been a relatively sudden surge of interest in the 
topic in many developer communities which bring fresh ideas.

I'd also like to be sure we take advantage of the decades of applied 
research that have already gone into metadata methods and usage.  Those 
discussions should at least include someone from that part of the library 
research community.  The Dublin Core was one such project.

So, with apologies to Larry Wall, while we're busy re-inventing the wheel, 
let's make sure it's a better wheel. ;)
