[QGIS-Developer] Planning QGIS Metadata updates for QGIS 3.4

Dear Friends

QGIS 3.4 is coming in October this year. Our little metadata group we did excellent work getting the foundations for a great metadata system implemented in QGIS 3.0. Now we are starting thinking about the next phase. I would like to initiate a call (or text chat meeting in Gitter) next week if possible to discus the next steps. The idea would be to revisit our roadmap document, and repeat the process we followed last time:

1) Identify the critical features and architecture for the next iteration (and publish a QEP)
2) Identify champions for the different components we want to build
3) Come up with costings for those components
4) Seek funding for building the components we define
5) Implement such features as we can obtain funding for or find volunteers for

I have started a doodle poll here to find a meeting time - I know it is going to be hard because we are spread across the globe. If it doesn't work trying to meet in real time I will take it off to a shared google doc that we can work on.


If you are interested to participate in the process, please let me know via the poll above.

If you or your organisation would like to see <pick your favourite standard> compliant metadata ingested and produced by QGIS and are able to support us with funding for this, please contact me off-list.
