Very useful update of repository specification initiatives. And it looks like all is the same in the world of standards. IMS is working on something in secret. OASIS has a web services approach. The open source OAI is taking something simple and making it complicated. UKOLN has a JISC-funded project to create something from scratch (with an acronym - SWORD - that ensures nobody will ever find it using Google). Via Andy Powell.
