Description

There currently are not any API methods for managing the collection of objectFormats registered to a dataone environment. There is a "bootstrap" resource that constitutes a the list in either d1_libclient_java or d1_common_java that can be used in testing environments. There's also a different resource in the cn-os-core project that is used in production.

These 2 resources are difficult to maintain (keep synchronized), and there isn't a defined process for adding formats to production.

We discussed the inclusion of an "addFormat(...) method in V2, but it is not currently in the API. (It would be part of the CNCore API).

It would be good to review the situation with a focused discussion to at least troubleshoot the existing informal management practices and formalize them; and then consider if more infrastructure is needed.
