In GeoNetwork opensource ( http://geonetwork-opensource.org ) we've  
been using ISO19115 for a long time now. We are now finalizing a  
release of the software that has among other things, support for the  
following standards:
Metadata: 	ISO19115 validated against ISO19139 implementation standard.
			Dublin Core
Catalog:		OGC CAT 1.0 & Z39.50
			OGC CSW 2.0.1 based on the ISO profile

GeoNetwork opensource is an incubator project of OSGEO and can be  
found at http://www.osgeo.org/geonetwork

We find it useful and have been using it to document large numbers of  
spatial datasets. For example at http://www.fao.org/geonetwork (where  
I work), http://vam.wfp.org/vamsie , http://geonetwork.unocha.org/ 
mapsondemand and http://csi.cgiar.org/geonetwork to name a few. All  
these organizations share their metadata collections among catalogs.
