Member Node Deployment Tracking

This project is used to track and document the process of evaluating, implementing, and deploying new Member Nodes. It is also used to identify actions needed for operational Member Nodes.

Deployment Workflow

The workflow for MNDeployment issues roughly follows the workflow from the diagram above, and is:

                         |                   |
                         V                   |
New  <-->  Review  -->  In Progress  <-->  Testing  <-->  Operational --> Deprecated
 |          |            |                   |


The member node is proposed and perhaps there has been some initial discussion.


The member node application is in the process of review which may include iteration of information gathering sufficient to determine whether to continue with the implementation path or to reject the application.

Each member node should have an accompanying member node description document, the template for which can be found at:


In Progress

An agreement has been reached and the member node software, data connections and other aspects are in active development and testing iteration.


The member node software and installation are undergoing acceptance testing prior to becoming operational.


The node is operational and participating in the production environment.


The node is in the process of, or has been deprecated and thus is no longer participating in the production environment.


The potential node has been found to be unable to participate in DataONE for some reason technical or otherwise.
