I posted this to the user list a couple of weeks ago but no interest. Maybe
the dev list has some thoughts?

Hi List,
>   I'm wondering if anyone uses the "metadata" fields for data in QGIS
> (Layer Properties -> Metadata)? I've been told that this is supposed to be
> filled in manually.
> I ask because I originally thought it was supposed to be filled in
> automatically - http://hub.qgis.org/issues/8870 - And for OGC services
> (WMS, WFS etc) this seems logical as all of the data is in the
> GetCapabilities.
> Does anyone have a view on this? Should the metadata be filled in
> automatically or should the user enter it manually? My issue with the later
> is that I guess the metadata is only saved in a .qgs file, and not the
> source itself, so no-one else is going to be able to see manually entered
> data.
> Thoughts? Comments?
> Cheers,
> Jonathan
