  1. Landscape -
    1. conversation with Michael Witt (10/18)
      1. Shelly - update on the re3data dump, & her work with copdess. She is curating, but there is no way to sync back her changes to re2data. Michael Witt working on this.
        1. it will mean a change to re3data workings.
        2. They needed a group of use cases to figure out how to implement this. Our “landscape” is one of their use cases.
        3. Michael has sent a draft of what a use case should look like, from re3data’s point of view. Not ready to share widely yet.
      2. CDF is also working on a use case. They have a large need, so might hear from that crew as well. (CDF will meet at ESIP winter meeting.
