The MetaDataStore is a Web-based approach to
manage metadata. Its goal is to simplify and standardize effective tracking and handling of multimedia products such as music, videos, text, and other rich media content. It is written in PHP using Smarty and MySQL, so it's likely to run
everywhere and have low maintenance costs. Parallel to the activities on the technical-based infrastructure, the developers are trying to develop a foundation to administrate every need for metadata analog to the foundation of similar projects like Mozilla or GNOME.
