Previously, a package type attribute was intended to distinguish between package data that came from government depts. and publishers location information (GEMINI). Now there is an intention use a common set of attributes to support data from either source.

Hence, there currently a v.3 of the government attributes, a document about extracting the attributes from Gemini document using XPath, and a comparison documents mapping between governemtn attributes and Gemini attributes.

That means there are potentially four different list of attributes. I'm not sure how to go about reviewing the lists and converging any differences.

But we do want to end up with a list of names, a description of their purpose, and then perhaps the XPath which would reveal the value from a Gemini doc?

At the moment DGU has locations such as Wales, England etc. This won't change and won't try to be merged with INSPIRE datasets or bounding boxes. What we do need is a flag for INSPIRE so that the different types of package can be highlighted.

Our new approach agreed with Rod is to start with a minimum set of package extras and expand them in line with feedback from the user group. We can now show the source GEMINI record as XML (and also a very basic HTML view) for anyone who wants the full detail.

No need for this ticket anymore.
