I haven't heard about GeoNetwork collaboration, but two examples from
Lounaispaikka: http://www.lounaispaikka.fi/ a regional (there aren't yet
many others in Finland) SDI, which is developing a new system, afaik,
mostly if not only on foss4g both on server and client side.
Paikkatietoikkuna, http://www.paikkatietoikkuna.fi/web/EN part of
national SDI, is also quite new. It is also using foss and foss4g.
