How to Use This Repository
If you are a consumer of the metadata simply clone the repostory with:
git clone -b master --single-branch --depth=1 https://github.com/hpde/CSSDP
If you are a contributor (someone authorized to make changes directly to the repository), clone the repository with:
git clone email@example.com:hpde/CSSDP.git
and use your favorite XML editor and tools to make the changes your want.
After making changes run validation and referential checks on the changed files. You can use the SPASE Resource Tools to do this task. Then push updates (git commit, git push) to the repository.
How to suggest or make changes
Anyone can suggested changes or updates to a description by loading the description in the editor, make the changes then click "Submit to Metadata Working Group" at the last step. You can jump to the last step by clicking "Export" on the list of steps on the left.
The easiest way to load a description into the SPASE Metadata Editor is to find the landing page for a resource description by replacing the "spase://" in the SPASE Resource ID with "https://hpde.io/". For example, change
Navigate to that URL with a browser, the click "Edit" to load the description into the SPASE Metadata editor.
GitHub actions are configured for this repository. When a "git push" occurs a validation and referential check is performed on the changes or additions to the repository since the last push. The status of the action is displayed in the "SPASE Push Validation" badge at the top of the page. You can view the log of the validation by viewing the action workflows, clicking on the appropriate workflow run, then "validate-log" artifict.
The "SPASE Push Validation" is designed to incrementally validate the repository. It assumes that the repository is valid before the "git push". To perform a whole repository validation run the "SPASE Manual Validation" action. To manually run an action go to the actions page, select the "SPASE Manual Validation" action, then click on "Run Workflow". For large repositories it can take many minutes for the workflow to complete - be patient. Once it is complete the "SPASE Manual Validation" badge will update.
Note on badge refresh: The status portion of a badge is an image. Typically browsers cache images so an updated status may not appear immediately. One way to view the current badge is to clear cached images back to when you last loaded the page, then refresh the page.
Notes for repository administrator: There is no garbage collection for workflows. So, its a good practice to occassionally visit the action workflows and remove old workflow runs. To remove a run click the elipses (...) for a work flow and select "Delete workflow run". Typically you would only need the most recent run.
