JHOVE Online Hack Day Spring 2017
Wed, 26 Apr 2017, 21:00 – Thu, 27 Apr 2017, 21:00 BST
Aim of the day
JHOVE is a great tool for validating content, such as PDFs, however:
Some of the output it produces is difficult to understand;
some of the documentation is out of date and could be more approachable for newcomers; and
the software testing could be improved.
During the next hack day we’d like to improve JHOVE by:
creating or extending descriptions of JHOVE validation errors;
reviewing and where possible, improving the existing documentation;
gathering example files that demonstrate particular validation issues for testing; and,
documenting the preservation impact of different JHOVE validation issues and what might be done to mitigate any risks.
Take a look at our getting started and task list google doc.
Any time you can spare to volunteer is greatly appreciated.
