COPTR was formally released late last week.
From a Post by Paul Wheatley on the Open Planets Foundation Blog:
We’ve been working to collate, combine, de-duplicate and align the contents of 5 existing tool registries from: The Open Planets Foundation (OPF), The National Digital Stewardship Alliance (NDSA), The Digital Curation Centre (DCC), The Digital Curation Exchange (DCE) and the Digital POWRR Project. There were of course quite a few duplicates to weed out but the scope and depth of COPTR now supercedes anything out there that I’ve seen previously, albeit with an inconsistency of depth between resulting tool registry entries. Each source registry had it’s own differing characteristics. At one end of the scale the DCC registry had really strong detail but coverage of well under a hundred tools. The DCE registry included over three hundred tools but with each tool described in far less detail.
