Registries provide a mechanism with which VO applications can discover and select resources - first and
foremost data and services - that are relevant for a particular scientific problem. This specification defines an
interface for searching this resource metadata based on the IVOA's TAP protocol. It specifies a set of tables
that comprise a useful subset of the information contained in the registry records, as well as the table's data
content in terms of the XML VOResource data model. The general design of the system is geared towards
allowing easy authoring of queries.
