Dear SiriJodha
Those you list are types of metadata and data standards; yes we will also make that clearer in FAIRsharing, thanks for pointing this out. Actually one of the issue (which I detail in a couple of my comments on the GitHub thread) is that there are no (globally) agreed ways/labels to classify data and metadata standards.
FAIRsharing is also and RDA WG*, and even if our output, the FAIRsharing registry has already been delivered (and approved as one of the flagship outputs), we are still actively engaging with the community** therefore we are also happy to lead on this harmonisation of labels if it helps. We could this in collaboration with the Maturity Model WG peraphs.
Feel free also to added one of our joint session at RDA next week, if you are around.
My regards
