2.3. New activities and notes

3. Discussion

3.1. Search requirements

(cf. SakaiVre/SearchDataModelling). Some discussion about the extent that it makes sense to stratify metadata in the way suggested. Agree that this is an idealization, and that in practice the boundaries are not so clear, but serves as a useful model for separating concerns.

3.2. Shibboleth

Note that parts of what were previously believed to be Bristol contribution to SPIE were actually implemented in Oxford (notably the JAAS module).
