Dear Kris, please feel free to post the full proposal to the
Incubator wiki, here:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/, e.g., at:
http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/ORDSProposal


You will need permissions to do so, so let someone on this list
know when you register for your wiki account.

Sounds very interesting.

Cheers,
Chris

Subject: Looking for a Champion for ORDs

>Hello All,
>
>A while back I started a brief discussion about inclubating ORDS (Oxford
>Research Database System). However, we had a pause in this process over
>the summer whilst some potential IP issues were sorted out, these have
>been resolved. 
>
>I would like to start looking for a Champion for the project again.
>
>Here is the first section of the proposal which has some adjustments from
>the previous post.
>
>------
>ORDS is a user and project centered, web-based  database-as-a-service
>(DbaaS) system with data publishing.
>
>ORDS imports data from recognized sources such as csv files,
>spreadsheets, and relational database files into structured online
>databases to provide DbaaS functionality. The databases are stored in an
>RDBMS (PostgreSQL with ORM access). It has a full set of high-level tools
>for managing and editing these databases, including tools that give users
>the ability to create versioned snapshots of data and share specific
>datasets. New databases can also be created using these tools.  Databases
>are housed in projects and associated with users with given roles. The
>data can be exported in common formats.
>-----
>
>We believe strongly that the ASF would be good place for this project to
>grow because of it’s tradition of upholding good open source practice.
>
>In brief it is in use by researchers at Oxford and there is a lot of
>interest in the sector for using it in other institutions.  Promotion of
>the system is already happening and this should give us a route for
>getting users, documenters, testers and developers involved.
>It is written in Java and uses Tomcat, PostgreSQL though the database can
>be switched as we use JPA for all db access.
>
>I have worked on the full proposal and can post it on this list if
>required or will put it on the wiki as and when is appropriate.  I just
>didn’t want to clog this email with a whole proposal at this stage.
>
>Please let me know if you are interested in Championing this project or
>know of any member who might be.
>
>Many thanks
