Hi ogg-dev list,

I have improved the format formally known as Media Description and 
Metadata (MDMF) for the Ogg Container Format.

Please have a look at the M3F page in the wiki http://wiki.xiph.org/M3F

The format have been simplified and designed primarily with audio and 
movie recordings in mind. The old version focused on providing separate 
tools for each media type, were the new version treats every media type 
as a media resources.

I welcome all feedback!

The two sections that really need work is the related texts and 
performers. I do not know if lyrics and subtitles (text resources) needs 
to be described in any way. The performers section is basically finished 
but needs work on the role and as attributes.

Take special note of the self regulated audience element. I do need 
feedback on this. It is intended to be used by file sharing clients and 
search engines to filter content. It is also intended for parental 
control. The element and it's attribute is based on the great work done 
by ICRA.
