NASA Data Systems Stakeholders:

The Earth Science Data Systems Working Group (ESDSWG) for Standards, a NASA
working group, is conducting a review of the GCMD Service Entry Resource
Format (SERF) specification that was submitted to the standards process.

The scope of the present review is the "operational usability" of the SERF
specification.  We have forwarded these questions to you because as a NASA
Earth Science Data stakeholder we would like to know your  experience with
the SERF specification or the use of SERF.

If you have experience in using the SERF (e.g., as a data services provider
or data services consumer or user), or in supporting software tools for the
SERF, we'd like to hear from you. If you have tried to work with the SERF
but abandoned the effort for whatever reason, we'd like to hear about that
experience as well. We'd also like to hear from those with experiences with
similar service metadata formats about the appropriateness of the proposed

The Standards Process Group is charged with recommending the use of data
systems standards within the agency that will enhance interoperation of
Earth science data systems within the agency and with partnering
organizations.  We do this through open review of standards submitted by
community stakeholders for endorsement by NASA.  It is absolutely essential
that members of communities that may be impacted by proposed standards
provide input in this process.

Comments should be sent before March 6, 2009  to
<spg-rfc-013 at lists.nasa.gov>

Thank you,

Richard Ullman
