It occurs to me (maybe a bit late) that the METS Editorial board could be
interested in reviewing the METS test case. Could I pass the document on
to them? Or do you prefer to wait until it is validated by the group?
All the best,

1 METS test case
1.1 Review of the BnF document:
Validation of updates by all.
Comment JGG1: Should we add a sentence or two to explain the motivation
for using METS instead of XFDU? =>Add a sentence explaining that it is
more used in library domain.
Comment JGG2: Are your SLAs executable or are they documents? Or
processes? => Answer: yes, explain
Comment BC3: We allow replacement (edition) or update (new version) of an
existing SIP. In this case, the new SIP would include two TO groups
instead of one.
Addition JGG: Will previous editions or previous versions remain in the
repository? Are OCR and epub both allowed in the ?ocr? group? The MoT
may need to be adjusted to allow for some of these options.
=>answer: every version of the packages are preserved, add clarification.
Replace ?completes? by ?updated?
Format/Mime type: only one allowed per Data Object.
DS: if there is a need for multiple formats allowed, the the PAIS
descriptor extension point could be used (interesting to test).
BC: is there a possibility to indicate a date of validity?
DS: no, but also possible to define it through the PAIS descriptor
1.2 Review of the spreadsheet
Discussion on terminology used at BnF to define ?group?. To avoid
ambiguity, speak for example about ?METS element?, ?BnF specific group?.
Add a sentence in the text explaining that XFDU and METS have similar high
A=>(BnF): update the document according to 20th March telecon (1.1 and
1. 2 Core PAIS GB
New updates sent by DS, but not enough time for discussion on this
There is still a lot to do sections 4 and 5.
The objective ?next week- is to work on this part, analyze the ?to be
done?, and identify the priorities.
2. 4 Information Curation Process -ICP
MM sent a proposal for a general paragraph to introduce the 4 stages -> to
be more discussed.
DG sent a simplified version of the synthetic spreadsheet for stages.
Roadmap to be clarified (what the intention is).
Identification of a generic skeleton, and of specific elements. In each
stage, which topics are very important for preservation.
MM: there is no standard for Data Management Plan.
DG: collaboration between RDA and CCSDS.
*RDA: requirements for Data Management Plan. Good visibility, NO
*CCSDS: publication process, NO good visibility.
Confirmation of a need for detailed use cases with supporting text.
Decision: 3 spreadsheet: a generic one, a copy with adaptation for library
test case, a copy with adaptation for EO data-LTDP (space mission).
Discussion Data Management/Preservation/Curation and adding value. RDA
proposes a diagram with 2 sides: support and tools.
RD: providing access and data format could be a short term issue.
DB: in the spreadsheet, the ?consumer? does not appear as an actor. The
consumer provides needs and requirements for data access, services, ? and
checks the usability of the data. Also appears ?Funder? and ?Sponsor?.
RD: a sponsor has a wider role than the funder.
Objective for next week -> work on the spreadsheet.
CNES PAIS prototype: installation highly simplified (PostgreSQL replaced
by an integrated Derby database). Tests done by DB, with review of test
cases. New version will be sent today to JG and MM.
Trouble noted with ISEE and Corot data. In all cases, data have been
changed and/or cut for demonstration (don?t correspond to the original
A=>(DB): add a sentence at the beginning of each test case explaining that
data have been modified and cut (don?t correspond to the original ones).
Please send to JG updates in actions.
Updated actions will be sent separately by JG.
End of 20th March meeting minutes
Part of historical minutes to be reminded
2. GREEN BOOK
2.2 Core document
Section 4.1.1 reviewed (ok)
Tabular representation is welcome but question remains about their
systematic use (need an XML version in annex ?)
CCSD0014: equivalent to TO Descriptor, and CCSD0015: equivalent to
==> Action Stephane from MM: explain more the CCSD0015: how it is
registered and reference where more information could be found on that
Don: descriptorModelID has to be changed on any XSD change
(specialization), the Archive has to maintain the versions
Section 4.6.1 about PAIS XSD description should remain here for the time
« open » enumeration technique is cumbersome (TBC)
Comment from previous telecons on method
* (Daniele): there are steps that conform to the PAIMAS process (first
model, SIP constraints, then transfer and validation).
* Link between the data base on the Archive side, and the PAIS XML
elements: example on how to match both (core document, test case?).
The following paragraph will be suppressed if ok:
XML namespace for PAIS
It is agreed that not all positions where a pais :any element are possible
have to be documented in the GB. Only a few example are necessary or even
More concrete example should be provided than the abstract « foo »/« bar »
currently proposed. Typical example would be a Collection holding a pais
:any with the author of the descriptor, the Collection name/ID in the
Producer semantic, or anything else that could be specific to the Producer
or the Archive side but not provided in the PAIS definitions.
SM: Reminded that « true » restrictions of XML Schema guarantees that the
original PAIS XML Schema?s rule are still applicable. Any instance
following a restriction follows the original ones.
SM: The use of restrictions does not impose any system to use the derived
PAIS schemas. Therefore, the restricted schemas have not to be shared with
any user of the produced SIPs. The project specific schemas could even be
discarded without losing control of the produced SIPs.
=> D ? (DS) The rightmost column of the table in §4.6.4 shall be renamed «
Restriction » instead of « Content »
MM: It is not clear that this table should be kept in that form or
discarded at the end, but the target should not spend too much pages on
WG: restrictions may be interesting for implementers and as such should be
documented, but it is not clear if this should be proposed as a
recommendation or a best practice.
SM: reminded that restricting elements such as the maxOccurrence?s should
be a recommended practice since it can be very difficult to implement
interoperable software exchanging elements of xs:nonNegativeInteger type.
SM: proposed to add prepared templates of restricting XML Schemas in
annex. Something that could help implementers to quickly setup the
restrictions of their needs.
WG: adding XML Schema?s in annex may not be so helpful because cut and
paste from PDF may be very cumbersome.
=> D ? (JG) these XSD shall be placed side to the originals.
SM: The problem is similar to other GB resources as the use case
descriptors or the software prototypes.
DB: LOTAR representative is ok with "preservation", but not with
"curation" (this word is not used in the community).
To be done: analyse and suggest, at different stages of the project
(during data lifecycle), what should be done on an archiving point of
Example of main issue: keep documentation up to date (when changes in
formats, processing, ? are made on the data).
Daniele explains her point of view: develop a "model" (magenta book)
gathering all the basic components of the preservation activity (selection
and appraisal, data and metadata preparation, access, maintenance ?) that
should cover all the data lifecycle (even when data don't exist), in order
to be able to answer the following question: what should be done from the
beginning till the end to be able to preserve data, and at what moment?
This should be done in a generic way, making links on standards related to
basic components when they exist.
Suggestion to ask Barbara Sierman of existing works concerning this topic.
Mail sent the 7/02 by Daniele.
Daniele underlines the need for CNES and LTDP group. CCSDS expertise will
be very important.
The PDS has its internal process ; for other agencies (particularly the
LTDP member agencies) this process doesn't exist and is required.
Question on how to make the link between a global process and the PAIMAS
20131030 Don's email and following discussions:
Don: The process could be focussed on the Archive point of view, and seen
an internal OAIS issue for workflow, using then more OAIS concepts.
The "provenance" is practically a big issue, going back to the original
"Reprocessing, curation, stewardship" could be maped with OAIS migrations,
new versions, ?
Update procedures exist at NSSDC.
Daniele: appraisal should be the starting point. Workflow, on the Archive
side, could begin early in a space project, even when data don't yet exist
; link with the Archive side of the PAIMAS.
OAIS Magenta Book (French version)
Complete validation to be performed now (text and figures)
This version will be also validated by the French National Archives.
Due to the amount of work on the PAIS, and priority to the PAIS green
book, this will be treated after.
