BIOTA - FAPESP MN
This issue is to track the deployment of the BIOTA - FAPESP member node.
They have deployed a test Metacat server to evaluate whether becoming a MN makes sense for the Biota program inside of EMBRAPA. This is a separate instance from other possible EMBRAPA nodes. Contacts for this project are Debora Drucker and Tiago E. M. Duque Estrada, both with EMBRAPA. The test Metacat is located http://biota.gradiente.ib.unicamp.br/biota/. Matt Jones met with the Biota team to discuss DataONE and the possibility of becoming a MN, and there is promise, but an uncertain schedule. More discussions need to take place before a decisions are made.

They are working on their current Metacat deployment. Seem to be using a self-signed certificate for https so we should discuss whether or not that can use a commercially-signed certificate or issue them a DataONE-signed server certificate.
