system_id of xml_catalog table points to knb.ecoinformatics.org for a new metacat installation
After new installation of metacat, administrator should registor known dtd or
schema files in xml_catalog. In xml_catalog table, public_id and system_id is
for this feature. The public_id will points to the namespace and system_id will
points to physical location(url) of the dtd or schema file.
Before metacat 1.4.0 installation, the system_id will point to local dtd or
schema file. For example, if user installed memtacat in
http://some.nceas.ucsb.edu/knb, the system_id for eml200 will be
But in metacat 1.4.0 release, no matter where the user installed metacat, the
system_id will point to http://knb.ecoinformatics.org/knb/. I think this is not
a good idea. If the server in nceas was down, the other metacats couldn't work.
So it is better to make the system_id to point to local machine.
