StandardsRegExt: Describing Standards for Registries

This standard is formerly known as VOStandard; discussion of the standard has moved here.

The version 1.0 registry data model uses Resource Identifiers in several places to identify which standard a particular resource follows (e.g. the capability element's standardID attribute). The Identifiers spec requires that any IVOA ID must have an entry in an IVOA registry; this implies that the standard itself is registered. Furthermore, there is an increasing interest to use IVOA identifiers to identify concepts and properties (e.g. VOSpace); the underlying identifier thus must be registered as well. The VOStandard data model and schema provides a framework in which IVOA standards can be described in the registry.

The goals of this extension are:

  • allow support for an IVOA standard be recognized via an IVOA identifier (e.g. as in standardID)
  • allow users to discover documentat about a standard protocol via the registry (in particular, via records of instances of the standard).
  • allow one to define and use IVOA identifiers to identify a concept or property.

This document is approved for Recommendation.

This defines the SIA standard, defining its URI as ivo://ivoa.net/std/SIA. It enumerates the parameters that defines the standard SIA interface.
This defines a set of keys representing different computer languages. For example, the Python language can be identified via the URI, ivo://ivoa.net/std/application/languages#Python.
This defines the VOSpace standard, defining terms mandated in the VOSpace specification like ivo://ivoa.net/vospace/core#httpget.
This defines the StandardsRegExt standard and includes the proposed <schema> element.
