Subject: UK Govt regrep requirements

Sorry I have not been as active here as I would like. For those who don't
know, I advise various parts of the UK Government on XML. Unfortunately,
nobody here is currently prepared to spend money on registries, but I am
working on this. My reason for joining this group was to represent UK
Government requirements in my spare time - something I have signally failed
to do so far.

I recently did some work for the MOD here, spending two days turning their
core schema (a collection of complex data types) into a repository of
fully-versioned types from which schemas can be automatically generated.
This is linked to their existing data dictionary through IDs and ASP code.

Whilst not a long-term solution, this has clarified the benefits of a
registry to parts of the MOD and elsewhere in Government and flushed out
some additional requirements. I now have permission to present on this
project and to talk to the regrep TC about it. I am currently preparing a
presentation that must be complete by October 14th. As part of a telecon, I
would be happy to make this available and talk through it.

What I would like to get out of this is:

* does the existing reg/rep spec meet this requirement?

* if not, is the TC interested in this requirement for a future release?

* Do any of the current implementations meet this requirement?

Note that the MOD is a simple case of the general UK Govt requirement. I
imagine that the needs are common across most Governments - it will just be
that some don't realise it yet.
