Thanks for pointing out those files. I didn't remember them.

I just had to make a few changes to get everything working properly. I
also updated the file that maps terms from the new DarwinCore to the older
versions, so that TapirLink providers can easily migrate.

I took the liberty to copy most files to rs.tdwg.org/tapir just to keep
tapir-related things together. More specifically I copied:


simple output model:

simple darwin schemas:

Please let me know if you think the corresponding files still need to
remain in darwincore.googlecode.com because in this case I should better 
add it as a new default trusted domain for TapirLink providers.

Best Regards,
