Story Points:


Upon MN completion of MN Description Worksheet, meet to determine operational and technical feasibility.
CAS_CERN Work Plan Template

Operational Feasibility:
* Repository meets sustainability expectations.

Technical Feasibility:

  • What data will be exposed?
  • Content mutability.
  • Software needs:
    • DataONE software stack or implement new web service in existing applications (custom stack)?
    • Full repository or Slender Node?
    • metadata only or science data + replication?
    • Repository's in-house preferences? (Java? Python?)
  • Consistency of metadata quality.
  • Level of functionality (tier).
  • Confirm chosen deployment path.
  • Communicate knowledge of technical requirements for selected deployment. These can include:
    • SSL certificate.
    • FQDN.
    • Apache web server with Python 2.7 or Java (depending on stack).
  • Confirm metadata format. Communicate expectations for metadata quality.
  • Specify in advance whether a separate test installation will be maintained in parallel with production. This is important for planning the deployment. A separate test will need distinct subdomain and SSL cert if not using wildcard.

Metadata validation:
* Receive and validate sample metadata records from member node.
