Required tagging for imports suggestion

Hello Community,

I am writing to suggest adding required metadata tags that importers will be required to to add to changesets in the future.

It’d be simple to add something like this to the guidelines, but I want input on what would be good tags to use for this purpose.

My initial idea is as follows

  • source - used for putting in the name of the source dataset
  • source:url - used for linking to the source dataset
  • import=yes - required on all changesets, for tracking.
  • import:page - used for linking the import’s wiki page

additionally, this tag may be worth considering

  • source:date - if known, used to specify the age of the parent dataset

Let me know your thoughts,
–James
