Chris Awre – The RepoMMan Project

October 19, 2006

RepoMMan is a project to develop a repository for Hull University. Chris is a good, coherent speaker, but I’m still not entirely convinced by his assertion that it’s a good thing that Fedora has had no UI. There’s a lot to be said for having lots of users!

RepoMMan is fully buzzword compliant, up and down the stack with some interesting technologies; Fedora, BPEL, MVC, SOA. Will they open the source code, I wonder?

There’s also a strong emphasis on automatic extraction of metadata, which is a subject close to my heart.
