icat-bagit-tool demo

Dear all,
I just uploaded a demo for the icat-bagit-tool that shows exporting a
package from an ICAT, see [1]. The demo requires docker (and in
particular permission to access the docker demon) but is otherwise
completely self-contained. In particular, you don't need to install
anything. You should be able to clone the git repo, cd into the demo
directory and follow the instructions in the README.rst therein.
Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
Best regards,
Rolf

2018-02-07 RDRIWG Virtual Meeting

Using DataCite as a metadata standard

  • New use case that hasn’t come up before - mostly focused on DOI registration
  • Issues with datasets that don't have a DOI hasn’t come up before 
  • DOI requirement built into schema for DOI registration
  • Next update will occur at the end of the year
  • Could update schema to relax DOI requirement
    • This will take 6 months
  • Two options in the meantime
    • Fork the schema in the short term
    • Use the schema without validation

sample profile

Dear all,
I would like to draw your attention to some suggestions to the sample
profile, see the pull request on GitHub [1]. The reason is that I
would like to follow our own recommendation to reuse existing profiles
rather then to create new ones for the ICAT exporter tool. So, I
would like to use the sample profile right away. But I do have a few
issues with this profile.
Best regards,
Rolf

Announcement: Next Virtual Meeting

Dear all,
As David already pointed out, it seems to be time for another virtual meeting of our WG. The first issue that should be discussed are the latest findings regarding DataCite. If you like, you can follow the corresponding discussion at [1] and we should find a consensus on how we proceed. In any case, this decision should be made on the condition that the next plenary (where we have to present our final recommendations) is approaching. Due to this fact, it also seems to be a good time to check the current state of the early adoptions and the recommendations document [2].

Meeting minutes and next steps

Dear all,
last Wednesday, the last virtual meeting of our WG for the time being took place. Please find the minutes at [1]. During the next weeks, probably until the end of January, we will work on the early adoption of our recommendations [2] and on completing the recommendations document itself. Currently, we have initial adopters for 4 platforms:
Stefan Funk – DARIAH Repository (import, maybe also export)
Rolf Krahl – ICAT (export)
David Wilcox – Fedora Repository (export, maybe also import)
Thomas Jejkal – KIT Data Manager (import and export)
