Hi all,

I was intrigued by GBIF's announcement regarding publishing
biodiversity data (http://bit.ly/m8hR6U), so I updated our IPT
(http://ipt.canadensys.net) to 2.0.2 and republished our dataset
(http://ipt.canadensys.net/resource.do?r=vascan). Users can now export
the Database of Vascular Plants of Canada metadata as RTF
(http://ipt.canadensys.net/rtf.do?r=vascan) and we could even submit
this as a data paper to a Pensoft journal. Really cool and very easy!

Good job IPT team!


PS: When I find some time, I'm going to dig a bit deeper in the RTF
file and see how the EML->RTF transition went.
