This workpackage creates and populates a repository of preservation-related software.

Description of work and role of partners

Allowing central access toProvides a central point of information about preservation software modules or services that have been designed and developed in regional and EU funded projects. it is necessary to move from heterogeneous, chaotic and unmanaged storage strategies to a common well managed and structured repository that holds the software modules or pointers to external repositories such as Sourceforge. We will adopt a repository system within which can be deposited the source code, service modules and executables together with the required documentation about requirements that have been addressed, application and user guides, prototypical implementation examples, and metadata sets that allows one to find and retrieve the stored information as well as the licensing and contact details about their originators. The source code, service modules and executables software modules themselves may be stored, or provided simply as references to other repositories.

We believe that we will not need to implement new repository software, although some customisation may be necessary. A repository will be adopted so that partners can deposit software or references to software.

Description of deliverables

D16.1) Software repository: The software repository will contain the software or pointer to the software together with descriptions, categorisations and annotations which will allow users to find appropriate tools for their requirements. Of particular importance is information about the strengths and areas of applicability of each tool. The system will allow users to provide their own evaluations and annotations. [month 1420]
