REST API specifications for archetype/template governance systems

Following this message:

Maybe it is time to start thinking about creating a REST API specification for archetype/template repositories. It should go beyond the CDR definition endpoint, and allow a complete governance of the contents of such systems: add, remove, modify and query archetype/templates/alternative formats. This would also help in the development of third-party tools or systems that interact with the archetype governance systems.

The CKM has its own API that for sure covers all or most of these operations. But that’s not part of the specification. Another very limited example is found in ISO 13606-5, where we can only find this function:

What do you think?


CKM has this API, I would assume it could be trimmed and proposed as a standard one
