Experience on OpenSearch implementations for INSPIRE?

Hi all,

Not really specific to Topographic and Cadastral Reference data, a problem related to all themes.

I'm looking for real-world experiences from production-quality software able to provide the OpenSearch capabilities required by the INSPIRE Atom Predefined Download Service TG. I'm aware of the simple php script of JRC(?) origin that at least used to be available.

I also know that GeoNetwork opensource has been striving to support OpenSearch based on the submitted metadata records for the Atom Download services. However, it seems that while they have managed to get OpenSearch working, it does not (yet?) do a good job implementing the INSPIRE Download Service requirements.

If you are using Atom, how have you implemented the OpenSearch functionality, and does your solution pass the INSPIRE validation?
