Repository in a Box

This link is mostly a reminder for myself: I need to spend much more time here to evaluate whether it is what it appears to be after a quick read. "Repository in a Box is a software package for creating WWW metadata repositories. Metadata is information that describes reusable objects, such as software. RIB allows the user to enter metadata into a user friendly java applet which then sends the information to a RIB server via HTTP. The information is then stored in an SQL database where it is automatically made available in a fully functional web site (catalog, search page, etc)." Now I would add a harvesting capacity, and I would store the data in a native XML database. But the designers here clearly have the right idea.
