GeoNetwork opensource as Reference Implementation for OGC Catalog Services for the Web

As reported by Jeroen Ticheler of FAO NRCE today, they have successfully finished work on implementing the Open Geospatial Consortium Catalog Services for the Web (OGC-CSW) specification in the GeoNetwork opensource Catalog System, the basis for the FAO GeoNetwork. As a result of the project, GeoNetwork opensource is the so-called Reference Implementation of the CSW specification for the OGC. Details can be found here:
The implementation is a recognition of FAO's work on making spatial data (like maps and satellite data) more accessible, using open standards to do so.
