Version 3.0 of the Data Documentation Initiative (DDI) specification has just been released for public comment.
During these next two months, users can test and evaluate this new version of the DDI to provide feedback and suggestions for changes. The DDI 3 site at http://www.ddialliance.org/ddi3/ now has new tools, including a DDI 2 to 3 converter/viewer, as well as several markup examples that should facilitate assessment and testing of the specification. Please do take a tour of the page if you haven’t already done so and start to learn more.
To open up discussions related to DDI Version 3, you can use one of the new DDI-related forums specifically designed for this purpose — see http://www.opendatafoundation.org/forums/ddi/
