Fedora and DSpace meeting

There was a developer meeting last week with representatives of the DSpace and Fedora communities, and notes from that meeting are available. I am pleased that there was a focus on identifying and solving the needs of the community. I saw a lot of mention of work flows. There was a recognition of the need to get the communities TOGETHER to have discussions about these common needs. There was a brief mention of the upcoming RepoCamp as one such potential venue for discussion.

I also loved the final sentence: "Michele, Sandy, Brad, and Thorny will have a beer together to summarize ideas generated in this meeting and conceive of next steps." That's friendly collaboration at its finest.
