> This JIRA covers the architecture and tracking of the open metadata and governance initiative
for Apache Atlas.
> Open metadata and governance is a moon-shot type of project to create a open set of APIs,
types and interchange protocols to allow all metadata repositories to share and exchange metadata.
 From this common base, it adds governance, discovery and access frameworks to automate the
collection, management and use of metadata across an enterprise.  The result is an enterprise
catalog of data resources that are transparently assessed, governed and used in order to deliver
maximum value to the enterprise.
> Delivering this capability as open source is a critical part of the project since multiple
vendors must buy into this ecosystem.  They are not going to do this if one organization dominates
the technology base.  Thus the open metadata and governance technology must be freely available
with an open source governance model that allows a community of organizations and practitioners
to develop and evolve the base and then use it in their offerings and deployments.
> The proposal is to use Apache Atlas as the open source reference implementation for open
metadata and governance.  Apache Alas will support an open metadata and governance compliant
repository plus provide the adapters and interchange formats to allow other metadata repositories
to connect into the ecosystem.
