The 2.0.0 release is codenamed “Doug” in honour of Doug Nebert of the
FGDC. Doug was internationally recognized as a champion of metadata,
discovery and interoperability. Involved in numerous international
standards bodies and spatial data infrastructure initiatives, Doug was
one of the editors of the CSW 3.0 specification and encouraged pycsw
developers to adopt and implement CSW 3.0 as part of US data.gov
efforts. Doug’s vision and expertise will always be remembered and
appreciated by the pycsw development team.

pycsw is an OGC CSW server implementation written in Python.

pycsw fully implements the OpenGIS Catalogue Service Implementation
Specification (Catalogue Service for the Web). Initial development
started in 2010 (more formally announced in 2011). The project is
certified OGC Compliant, and is an OGC Reference Implementation. Since
2015, pycsw is an official OSGeo Project.

pycsw allows for the publishing and discovery of geospatial metadata.
Existing repositories of geospatial metadata can also be exposed via
numerous APIs (CSW 2/CSW 3, OpenSearch, OAI-PMH, SRU), providing a
standards-based metadata and catalogue component of spatial data

pycsw is Open Source, released under an MIT license, and runs on all
major platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X).
