Dear Aurelio,

We have not yet formalized a way of defining extensions from the  
social aspect (e.g. agreement, maintenance, governance etc) but  
technically it is quite easy.

Please see http://rs.gbif.org/ where you will find the extension  
definitions in XML (with a CSS to make them easier to read), and a  
sandbox, where we can host your created extension while it is  
developed and tested.  Sandbox extensions are only visible to IPTs  
that are not in the LIVE/production mode, which is selected during  

Are you planning to look at investingating DwC-A extensions for the  
Plinian core based application schemas by any chance?  If so, we have  
already done some work in this area which I can share with you.

Many thanks,
