Hi Ray,

Instead of inventing yet another metadata format, we could consider using
- RDF is the official W3C format for metadata
- RDF is metadata-agnostic
- RDF is extensible

Best regards,
Poul Henrik

Subject: metadata formats for ZNG

We haven't said much (or anything, far as I recall),  since the June
about metadata formats for ZNG. At the meeting we spoke of DC and ONIX.

This is a heads-up: I'm planning to propose a new format, either in addition
these two, or preferably, to replace ONIX.  Its an XML-based format for
bibliographic elements that we've been working on here in our office. We
unleashed it yet, but will this week.  More later.
