GHSTS release packages

The versioning numbering scheme for GHSTS components is composed of a two digit major, a two digit minor and a two digit patch level number separated by single dots or dashes (xx.xx.xx). Major versions are used for global functional changes, minor versions for local changes and patch level versions for error corrections. Patch level versions do not require new versions of other GHSTS artefacts. The filename of the GHSTS picklist XSD is not changed when it is versioned, as it is referenced by the GHSTS submission XSD.

The following table shows the GHSTS release packages and their related file versions for specific GHSTS components.

Picklist XSD

Upon generation of a GHSTS submission package the registrant has to supply metadata. Some metadata has to be selected from a list of values supplied in a separate GHSTS picklist file. The GHSTS picklist schema definition is an XSD that contains the definitions for the picklists as well as the picklist items that are used in the metadata elements in the GHSTS backbone XML file. GHSTS picklists are implemented to harmonize the list of possible values, which could be submitted within a specific element.

Table of Contents (ToC) XSD 

The Table of Contents XSD defines how to describe a Table of Contents in an XML file. The Table of Contents (ToC) (“dossier numbering system”) used in a GHSTS submission has a structure according to a standard Table of Contents defined by authorities.
