A Fedora 6 demo video is now available showcasing a recently added feature. This demo explains the repository rebuild functionality and demonstrates how it works. This new feature demonstrates Fedora’s commitment to a self-describing, long-term-preservation persistence layer and increases Fedora’s resilience in disaster recovery scenarios.

You can find the demo video here.

This demo follows previous videos demonstrating the use of the migration tools to transform a Fedora 3 on disk representation to OCFL, creating RDF resources via the Fedora API and seeing those resources represented on disk as OCFL Objects, how to create binary resources and see how they look on disk, and how to create and manage archival groups. 

You can find all these videos in this playlist.
