Hi Kevin,

I saw a post you made to the ldp-meta list. Are you planning to use
the Open Source Metadata Framework (OMF)?

This stuff looks pretty interesting, and potentially useful. Does it
require the creation of a separate OMF entry for each doc to be
catalogued? If so, do have a means to automate the process for

Since I package some docbook xml stuff for debian, I'm interested in
how we might make use of the OMF without increasing the
workload. (Hmm... sounds suspiciously like I'm asking for that elusive
free lunch again...)
