IFMES stands for Interactive Fiction Metadata Element Set, and is a proposed standard by Ryukage a.k.a. Damian Dollahite.

(I find myself unable to understand what this is about exactly. A first casual skim of the material suggests that IFMES is some variant of XML that lets one declare game title, author, genre, and other metadata about an IF game in a standard manner that (hopefully) others will adopt inside applications or website services. TADS's Game Chest is similar in concept, but I assume that IFMES would potentially go further. I'd appreciate it if someone who does understand IFMES would explain it in layman's terms here, so non-techies can get a grasp on it.
