I'm glad to see you are interested, unfortunately you are unlikely to get an answer from vimm or anyone with access to the backend. I do know of places similar to this that may be more open to answering questions.

Hey everybody, I just found this board and site this evening while I was really feeling the Metroid bug. I am in the archival field professionally and research into digital archives and special collections like this is sorely lacking in the field as it is, so seeing a project of this scale is really a marvel. Does anyone here know what workflows are in place for future data migration or what kind of DAM system Vimm uses on its backend? I am really interested in discussing what kind of encoded data system is utilized to accession any associated metadata with this project and if any desire for future integration with a more accessible database system is on the table. Thank G-d for strong archival backup laws!
