Metadata: Overview

The "templated content" or project metadata shown on the upper navigation bar in CoG is part of the solution for coordinating a large set of projects.

This project metadata provides:

  • A way to link associated projects
  • A way to find information easily, taking advantage of a familiar website layout
  • A way to get customized, consolidated views of the information needed for collaboration across projects
  • A way to promote governance norms; for example, expecting that projects will have a clear and open prioritization process
  • A way to understand and affiliate with a set of independently run governance bodies
  • A way to browse and search associated projects and support discovery

CoG itself is just a starting point.  With a schema-based approach, the schema can be governed separately and leveraged in multiple coordination environments.
