# Changes made in response to feedback from RDA Plenary 14 (Helsinki)
There have been some minor structural changes, and several name-changes to improve the naming consistency.
## Expressing identifiers consistently
Seven properties have been altered to each contain the following sub-property pair:
* `identifier`
* `type`
The properties which now contain these identifier/type pairs are:
1. `contact_id` under `contact`
2. `contributor_id` under `contributor`
3. `dmp_id` under `dmp`
4. `dataset_id` under `dataset`
5. `metadata_standard_id` under `metadata`
6. `funder_id` under `funding`
7. `grant_id` under `funding`
## The `technical_resources` property
This no longer uses the `identifier/identifier_type` pattern. Instead it just has a `name` and a `description`, both of which are `strings`.
## Renamed properties
* `dm_staff` renamed to `dm_contributor`
* `staff_id` renamed to `contributor_id`
* `staff_name` renamed to `name`
* `mbox` under `contributor` renamed to `mbox`
* `contributor_type` renamed to `role`
* `dm_contributor` to `contributor`
* `available_till` in `distribution` to `available_until`
## Data type changes
* `type` in `dataset` has been changed from a controlled vocabulary to a free `string` property because we have been unable to identify a suitable vocabulary to constrain this property
* the cardinality of `type` in `dataset` has been relaxed to `0..1`
## Host storage type
* `storage_type` in `host` has been changed from a controlled vocabulary to a free `string` property because we have been unable to identify a suitable vocabulary to constrain this property.
# Changes made since 2019-11-15
* the property `role` in `contrubutor` has been changed to a `string` value, and it's cardinality been changed from `1` to `1..n`
* the value `email` has been removed from the list of allowed identifier types for both `contact` and `contributor`
