How can we improve Rosetta?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. issues with indexing in Rosetta

    Here at SLUB, we're seeing a few issues with the way indexing is implemented in Rosetta.
    Currently, all Rosetta servers that are in the "Indexer" role hold a single part of the whole index with no redundancy between the indexing nodes. If there's an outage in one of the servers, there are two effects.
    N°1: One third of the index entries will not be available and the missing server will not take part in indexing any new IEs, obviously. The IE that was just being processed by this server will not be in the index and information about it will…

    • Take account of the METS mimetype attribute during file ingest

      The METS standard has a mimetype attribute on files "<file MIMETYPE="application/pdf" ... /> but this information is currently ignored by Rosetta during the file-type identification process on ingest.

      Mimetye should be at least as reliable as file extensions (because mimetype is a standard, is actively maintained and widely use by a good portion of software for identifying file types).

      In particular, recognising mimetypes is likely to greatly increase the ease of ingest of content from internet-facing content management systems where it is very widely used

      • In Material Flows: remove option to "automatically extract compressed files" when the Content Structure is changed to METS

        The material flow configuration includes the default option to "automatically extract compressed files". This option works in all workflows except METS content structure work flows, as extracting compressed files leads to mismatches in the METS struct map.
        Material flow configuration screens should blend out the extraction option for METS content structure or make the user aware of a faulty configuration upon saving such a combination.

        • Make Standard Upload procedure for 3A configurable (Applet vs. manual upload)

          When adding representations via the 3A workbench, the default procedure is the applet upload. Due to security settings, the applet may not be available in some environments. In this case, the user has to click the "Load the files manually" link located on the left to then switch to the manual upload procedure, which works fine.
          To avoid these extra steps it would be nice to set the default upload procedure (applet or manual) for 3A workflows via a general parameter.

          • Validation Stack to Flag Problems as Warnings, not Errors, and Move them to Permanent

            Ability to run the validation stack during ingest, but only flagging warnings, not errors. All IEs will be moved to the permanent repositories and if needed, the problems will be dealt with in a future stage.
