      1. Christina Harlow created a wiki page for meeting notes related to PCDM
      2.!topic/pcdm/8xVAWuczaxQ began a discussion on file sets and PCDM
        1. file sets are not part of PCDM
          1. in Sufia, it's been applied with PCDM
          2. there has been discussion of creating a working group to get this sorted out with PCDM 2.0
        2. The purpose of PCDM was to generalize it & make it broader than the needs Hydra community
          1. questions arise as communities feel it doesn't meet their needs
          2. See Hydra Architecture WG notes at
      3. What can the Metadata IG do to help?

      1. Agenda discussion
        1. should all working groups report?
          1. not all WGs have content to report
          2. the MODS/RDF group could report on their work, but they have their own session
          3. the URI Management WG will have things to report
        2. We'll put working groups on the agenda 
    3. Questions about the group going forward
      1. Should we examine our role within the community and how it relates to participation in this group?
      2. Lots of metadata work is happening in other groups such as the Architecture WG
      3. This group still serves as a way for metadataists to get involved in the Hydra community
  5. Action Items
    1. Next meeting is Wednesday, September 7
