Hi all: at our June meeting we touched on various developments at OGC
which relate to future CSW efforts.
The OGC service architecture is moving forward with a clean break on
long-time OGC service interface design patterns, aligning with the current
architecture of the Web . As a result there is movement to align with
Spatial Data on the Web Best Practices , OpenAPI and JSON.
Current efforts in this direction can be found in WFS 3 development 
which is being developed in the open on GitHub (draft specification is
available at ). Aside: in geopython space we have been developing
Early discussions on CSW 4 indicate aligning to the WFS 3 approach, following
many of the design patterns with an information model suitable for
CSW 4 was also discussed at the pycsw Athens dev meeting in July
(report to follow),
and pycsw will be participating as an early adopter/implementer of the
OGC will soon be setting up a CSW 4 Standards Working Group (SWG) along
with various GitHub/Gitter infrastructure. We are happy to report that
Angelos and I will be part of the SWG, and will report back on developments
thanks a lot for the summary. I am looking forward to the SWG updates,
thanks to you and Angelos for taking care of this!
