Subject: [tdwg-ncd] French metadata interfaces based on the NCD

As we announced it in january, the french GBIF node developed its own interface
for metadata, based on the NCD schema.

We made an new interface in PHP for adding metadata, and adapted the Synthesys
Web Portal for browsing and updating the data (Python). 

We started to develop the interfaces in february-march, thus "our" NCD version
might not fit to the current version; we added some fields too.

You can have a look at the interface (only in french, sorry) :

and the portal (still in development and in french) :

Hope it can be useful.
