I wonder if it's time to start thinking about a more general
We may wish to consider adopting the Dublin Core standard
for the metadata associated with a wiki page. In particular,
There was a pmwiki 1 recipe for this:
Whether the metadata should be embedded in the page content or
as an associated metadata record is an open question:
+ having a metadata form makes it easy for people to add metadata
+ the metadata doesn't get in the way when editing a page
- people need to understand what 'metadata' means
- updating the content of a page can make the metadata incorrect
The markup [[PageName?action=dc]] would show the metadata
associated with a particular page. This would also be built
into the HTML header, so DC harvesters can pick up the metadata.
For example, it would be fairly easy, I think, to make PmWiki
OAI-PMH compliant (open archives initiative protocol for
metadata harvesting), if desired.
This would also allow a wiki search to show a full metadata record,
or selected parts of it.
Perhaps if there are any librarians reading the list, they
may wish to comment on this proposal.
