Hi All,

Thanks to the migration to the new setup we have an opportunity to update
and extend the information we collect on each Data Portal / Catalog

   - Github issue for discussion of this question
   <https://github.com/okfn/datacatalogs.org/issues/24> - including fields
   to add/remove etc
   - Summary of the proposed set of fields
   sheet in spreadsheet

Below is an excerpt from the github issue to provide some motivation. Happy
to have discussion either here or on the github issue!




   - New? Add a maintainer and maintainer_url field for organization or
   person maintaining the portal.
   - Modify? license field - shall we normalize in some way, do we want a
   link to the license page or evidence on source website
   - Delete? delete metadata_modified and metadata_created? Latter is easy
   to support but former is hard with google spreadsheet DB
   - New? open boolean field to indicate whether the data in the portal is
   open or not
      - could have an open_percent for mixed portals
   - New? date_launched date the portal launched
   - New/Change? A field like metadata_contributor to credit folks
   contributing info (very spotty in current data and not very systematic).
   - Change? Merge groups and tags - no reason to keep separate ...
   - New? generator - name of software that powers the portal
