Review of draft deliverable

Simon had put a draft of the complete deliverable D21.1 on the wiki. The question is what needs doing to bring this deliverable to a satisfactory state for submission to the EC by 4th March.

Simon did not think that a classification of preservation services by domain/type of data will be useful, as most (all?) of the services we have collected are not specific in this way.

Ash suggested linking (some of) the preservation services to the scenarios developed for WP14. It was agreed that this will be useful additional content for the deliverable. Stefan Hein volunteered to do this task.

(Ash also recommended a couple of tools for UML modelling, if needed: http://yuml.me/ and http://www.websequencediagrams.com/)

ACTION: Stefan to associate preservation services (as listed on wiki) with scenarios from D14.1, and to write some explanatory text illustrating a few examples - by next Tuesday/Wednesday.

ACTION: Simon to make other additions/clarifications to deliverable text, including simple conclusions about the landscape of services.

Simon emphasized that work on services will continue after WP21 formally ends, as an integrating effort within WP11. This will include analysing the results from the questionnaire. David would like to put a public list of services on the external website. For the VCoE, the hope is that if approached by someone with a problem with a particular type of data, a connection can be made to services that might be applicable.

Barbara stressed that the list of services presented in D21.1 will not be final—it should be seen as an evolving register. However it is important for the deliverable that our coverage of services is reasonably complete, and there are no obvious omissions. Sources of services include EUDAT, ENSURE and SCAPE projects.

ACTION: All to check list of services on wiki page and make additions, within next couple of days.

Status and distribution of the questionnaire

A short questionnaire for data holders on their perception and need for preservation services has been produced and is appended to the deliverable. Silvio reported that questionnaires for WP23 and WP27 are in preparation, and that these three will be merged—so there is no need to repeat the general introductory questions. The plan is to distribute the questionnaire in a couple of weeks. Depending on the recipient, only s a subset of the sections need be completed.

ACTION: Silvio, Simon and Orit to finalise questionnaires and integrate.

Silvio also reported that he is in communication with SCIDIP-ES about that project's work on authenticity, and another service might be added to the list as a result.

Future work in scope of WP11

Simon intends to arrange another WP21 meeting after the review to plan for taking the work further into integration.
