Have you ever been interested in Islandora CLAW, but thought to yourself "How the heck am I going to get my data into this thing?" We at the Islandora Foundation want to provide an answer to that question, but we're gonna need your help to pull it off. We're seeking community contributions as we scope, design, and implement a basic migration from Islandora 7.x to CLAW using Drupal's Migrate ecosystem. And yes, with the help of the Metadata Interest Group, we're going to do what was previously unthinkable... Migrate. MODS. (cue dramatic music)
We're looking to start planning and scoping in late July, with the work to take place on the weeks of August 20th and 27th. If you or your organization is interested in helping us provide a migration path from 7.x and get some valuable hands on experience with CLAW, please add yourself to our signup sheet. We need developers, end users to test and run migrations, as well as example files and metadata to work on. And if you are considering moving to CLAW and want to learn more about how we model content, map RDF, or use Drupal Migrate, you should definitely drop into the meetings and check things out. As always, lurkers welcome.
