Earlier in May, DuraSpace convened a small group of DSpace
stakeholders/sponsors to begin brainstorming a 3-5 year Vision and High
Level Roadmap for the DSpace platform.
We have just posted a brief summary of the discussions from this
meeting, the outcomes and suggested next steps:
You are also welcome to read through the detailed meeting notes:
Based on the discussions of this meeting, we have begun to draft a
Vision Document for DSpace. It is still very much a work in progress,
and will be enhanced in the coming weeks/months. Therefore, please be
warned that nothing in this early draft is finalized. But, you are more
than welcome to take an early peek:
Much more information and many more discussions will be coming soon. In
the meantime, you are welcome to contribute your own initial feedback
(as a comment) to the wiki page above. We will be providing additional
opportunities for public discussion/feedback both virtually and at Open
Repositories 2013 (http://or2013.net/).
Finally, it is worth noting that this DSpace 3-5 year Vision discussion
does not have any direct relationship with the DSpace 4.0 release
scheduled for late 2013. The DSpace 4.0 Release will go forward as
planned and will add new features/improvements to our existing platform.
The goal of this longer term DSpace Vision discussion is to describe use
cases for a potentially new or updated DSpace platform, which may
require many years/releases to implement.
Feel free to let us know if there are immediate questions. We look
forward to envisioning the future of DSpace together.
