[Tdwg-guid] Some questions re metadata tags [ Scanned for viruses ]

there is more than one reason why a record might be 'suppressed' - should this be indicated? IF currently supresses three types of record:

1. orthographic variants (one to many)
2. deprecated records (either absolute duplicates or keyboarding/OCR/other 'duplicates')
3. unpublished names (e.g. from 'herbarium' specimens or BRCs (a.k.a. culture collection)

all these have a 'isReplacedBy' pointer ...

Hi all

Having gone through my notes from GUIDs 2 I realise we need a couple 
of tags in the IPNI metadata - any suggestions for what would be a 
good standard term to use?

We need something to tag version, and something to indicate that a 
record has been suppressed (rather than just reporting 'not found')
We will use Darwin Core's 'isReplacedBy' for records that have been 
suppressed in favour of another record
