DILCIS Board in cooperation with E-ARK CSP publishes updated Common Specifications for the Information Packages and E-ARK SIP/AIP/DIP, Content Information Type Specifications (CITS) and guidelines

We are pleased to announce the publication of the Common Specifications for the Information Packages and E-ARK SIP/AIP/DIP, the Content Information Type Specifications (CITS) and guidelines, following handling reported issues in GitHub and changes in the layout of the front page and inclusion of an acknowledgement sheet. There has also been an update to the automated publication process. A process that is used for the publication of the Common Specifications for the Information Packages and E-ARK SIP/AIP/DIP and now also for the CITS Geospatial. The plan is that all the specifications in maintenance by the DILIS Board will become part of the automated publication process.

The updates to the information package specifications focus on updates following submitted issues and clarifications used in the language of the specifications besides layout updates in the presentation. There are release notes present in all the repositories in GitHub.

We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who provided feedback to us in GitHub - your contributions to this work have been crucial to moving the specifications forward for wider community adoption.
