For those interested in free and open source software and such like,
this data commons project and license,
and its associated wiki
might be worth a look.

Not sure how or to what extent it might intersect with
which seem to be a bit richer in term of content and specification and
are getting a reasonable degree of penetration in biodiversity
applications development  and data management circles.

but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."
