With the release of Fedora Commons 3.0, the Content Model Architecture (CMA) was added to Fedora. It was not meant as an end-all solution, but rather as a starting point for building more advanced content models. The Fedora team expected the user community to figure out the best ways to use and amend this design. Now, the CMA have been around for a while, and certain improvements have, by agreement of the Fedora Committer Team, matured enough to be brought back into the core Fedora system, probably with the coming Fedora 3.4 release. This proposal aims to present these improvements to the Fedora community.
