Not sure how best to go about supporting this. I'd like to allow for the following data to be optionally attached to any given database: - Title - Description, potentially in markdown? - Original source URL - License I'd also like the ability to attach descriptions to individual tables - and maybe even to table columns? The question then becomes: how should this information be stored. A few options: - In the SQLite database itself, in a specially named table. Problem here is that this means having to modify SQLite databases before publishing them. - In a separate SQLite database that can be published alongside the databases we are publishing. - In a JSON file. This is neat, but JSON files are not a great editing experience once you start including multiple lines (e.g. a markdown description). - In a YAML file. This is a better format for multi-line descriptions, but still isn't a great editing experience. Whatever the format, it can be made much more usable by offering a web-based editing UI for populating it (a special mode the server can be run in). 107914493 issue
