Event description


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  • some of the documentation is out of date and could be more approachable for newcomers; and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.
