The details of the project are yet to be decided, but the focus is on exploring differing modalities for change notification (CN) and content transfer (CT). We are exploring a variety of push technologies to augment conventional harvesting technologies (e.g., RSS, Atom, OAI-PMH).
More details can be found in the slides Herbert and Rob covered during the telecon:
ResourceSync: Conceptual and Technical Problem Perspective
The ResourceSync team had a face-to-face meeting in Baltimore, February 2-3, 2012 where we settled on some of the basic project parameters and discussed an early prototype. Prior to that, Herbert and I did some preliminary strategizing on this topic during my visit to Santa Fe, October 26-28, 2011.
We will issue a technical report about ResourceSync shortly.
