Writing Registry Records for IVOA Standards

Standard authors using IVOIDs in their standards (for instance, to give capability identifiers) must, others should submit registry records for their documents. This page tries to guide you through this process.

Starting a record from scratch

The format of the registry record is prescribed by StandardsRegExt, but trying to work through that document and all the prerequisites just to write a record for your standard would be overkill.

Rather, start from a template that is provided as part of the ivoatex authoring system; of course, it can be used without ivoatex, too.

If working with ivoatex in the recommended way, authors should have their standards record under version control, too. It is recommended to say

   svn copy ivoatex/stdrec-template.xml ExampleStandard.vor

and edit ExampleStandard.vor.
