Synchronizing Metadata and Resources Standards

NISO and Open Archives Initiative (OAI) project are working together on standards for synchronizing both metadata and Resources, ResourceSync.
ResourceSync will research, develop, prototype, test, and deploy mechanisms for the large-scale synchronization of web resources. ResourceSync is a joint cooperation between NISO and the Open Archives Initiative (OAI) team, with work funded by the Sloan Foundation2. Building on the OAI-PMH strategies for synchronizing metadata, this project will enhance that specification using modern web technologies, but will allow for the synchronization of the objects themselves, not just their metadata.
Much of the discussion is taking place on Google+.
