Ariel Nunez,

thanks for your prompt answer but probably i didn't make myself clear..

That is an interesting point to do.  Fork geonode and create a INSPIRE
branch with the new metadata editor which for sure would be great for
geonode but my problem is beyond that.

My question it has to do with the begining of all this. How to costumize
geonode editor? How dificult is to do that? Geonode predict this kind of
costumization? What modifications should i consider?
