This is the section of this wiki that is for the serious work of this project. While the other pages are extremely important, this is where the bulk of the work on this project will be discussed and get done. Please keep in mind that while this is a user-driven community project, the desired initial outcome of this project is a technical standard for software developers. Much of what follows will be very technical in nature and may require advanced programming knowledge to fully understand. Here are some discussion areas for development of a suitable data model for BetterGEDCOM:
