A GLDF file can require information, that does not refer to the specific product it provides. This information are more of a technical nature. For this data, a separate file is intended in the GLDF: the
meta-information.xml. Its content is specified like the
product.xml through a XSD Schema and will be described in this chapter.
meta-information.xml is not intended to store manufacturers luminaire data.
These have to be written into the
name attribute convention
The convention for the

meta-information.xml could therefore look as follows
This example also illustrates how important it is to follow the convention for the
name attribute to avoid naming conflicts.
