Define format for packaging/serialization of a Tale #24
I follow your project with high interest! Maybe you've heard about o2r, too.
Yes, thanks for the pointer, @nuest. ERC looks really interesting. There are a lot of packaging formats in development. The tend to fall into several groups, and our DataONE packaging format is in the ORE manifests with BagIt group. There's another group around using JSON manifests.
A pretty extensive list is being developed here (https://docs.google.com/document/d/155lA2BcixTl-zwJHGfLkxsmg7WmQbBK00QWyP8QggkE/edit) with the goal of using RDA as a mechanism to get some degree of community consolidation. That list shows at least 18 and possibly more than 25 actively used formats, depending on how you slice it. I just added ERC to that list, so please correct anything I got wrong.
So, lots to consider. Given that many of our affiliated repositories have adopted the DataONE data packaging format, that is the simplest approach for us. However we do it, I think the data archival packaging format and the 'active' packaging format should be the same -- they are all just containers for metadata and digital objects.

Once we have a final version of our internal format, we can close this and open a follow-up to address any feedback from your RO meeting.
