[geo-discuss] Fw: INSPIRE Draft Implementing Rules for Metadata open for public consultation.

dear all,

The second-round draft of the INSPIRE Implementing Rules has now gone
into fully-public consultation. This means comments don't have to go back
through an SDIC/LMO, as before. The consultation ends on the 21st December.

What I've heard is that there was notable negative feedback from SDICs
that the line between 'normative' and 'informative' rules was too
blurry, so the draft has been chopped right down and a lot of the
appendices dealing with mappings to Dublin Core, ISO19115, etc, 
have been dropped and will be published as "complementary" later.

Quick! Into the INSPIRE-compliance-o-matic-mobile!
