some time ago i looked at the metadata scripts. I remember that they are
not very sophisticated and very special for the one institution where
they have been developed.
I have some tcl/tk code that at least procduces _basic_ metadata
listings for grass data in html-format. But this is not in a form to
publish. Please contact me if interested.
