Use cases DA-02, DM-05, DM-06, DM-07, DM-08, DM-09, and DM-10 all require XSEDE to provide a metadata management function that can be used by researchers to create, store, and search metadata (descriptions of datasets and data objects) while working with scientific data. XSEDE does not currently offer such a function.
XSEDE prioritized the DA-2 Data Preparation use case which describes how users need tools for creating, sharing, and discovery metadata. This activity will identity metadata management tools, evaluate, select, and recommend the ones with the greatest ROI for XSEDE users. We will separately and independently launch activities to integrate each of the selected tools.
There are comments for XCI-245 that can be viewed with XSEDE authentication.
