Is it possible to access the metadata of a feature class in a ArcSDE-data, using arcpy / python (on Arcgis 10.0).
I suppose I could export the metadata to xml and parse the xml, but is there a more direct approach? I need to make a summary table of all the data in our database, with several elements from the metadata (author, last update etc. ). We always enter metadata for each new dataset in our DB.
