The use of a special schema for filk metadata archiving has proven to be a bad idea. Currently I'm working on a filk book index site, which is based on the MODS schema. Some of the code from this project may find its way to MODS development, as creating data for one schema isn't all that different from creating it for another. But the Filkive project as such is now in deep freeze.
A sample data file is now available at http://filkive.sourceforge.net/samples/sample1.xml
The CVS archive with source code is finally up.
The project is finally here. There's a bit of learning involved for me, so you probably won't see any code uploaded till after ConCertino. -- GDM
