This page is outdated and kept for archival purposes only. It contains the proposal and discussion of the "Metadata for all DSpace objects" concept. The actual implementation of this concept in DSpace 5 is outlined in Metadata for all DSpace objects.
This is based on ClauiaClaudia's comments in the commiter list and the topic discussed elsewhere. Goals should be to expand on this and relate it to other projects/efforts. For instance, the async release proposal will now include establishing a true "API" for DSpace legacy objects and placing this in the "modules" directory where other projects can depend on it.
