Hi Kristin --

One thing we've been working on in terms of best practices for archiving
code is a common-denominator metadata model for code, one that is shared
across code repositories.  The CodeMeta project (
https://github.com/codemeta/codemeta/blob/master/README.md) has been
working for the last year to compare existing approaches to software
metadata, and to generate a consensus schema for use in documenting code.
That schema is now very close to release, and has been put into practice at
the Journal of Open Source Software (JOSS).  We will also soon be working
on supporitng it within the KNB and DataONE, and Zenodo has indicated they
will support it as well.  Take a look at the schema... and I'd love to see
how well it works for your code library efforts.
