[Geopackage] Historical question on metadata

Hi Jeff,

Which tables do you mean exactly? gpkg_metadata and gpkg_metadata_reference?

One stores the metadata itself; the other is the association relationship between the metadata and the data it describes. Splitting the two allows reuse of metadata for multiple tables.

If I remember correctly, Paul Daisy did most of the work on metadata so he might be able to give you a better answer.
