The first part of this talk will focus on the FPR's structure and its capabilities, but this isn't just a vendor pitch. The current version of the registry is only designed around Archivematica's usecases, but we want to bring the FPR to the world and make it work great for other software too. Share your format policies between Archivematica, Islandora, and Hydra! Share your file IDs between applications so you never misidentify a file again! Build new software without having to worry about the details of how to run external tools on files! The second part of the talk will focus on possible future developments, how the FPR might change, and what a community effort to bring the FPR forward might look like.
