The academic staff research and education activity database of Kyushu University is a document database system which enables each academic staff member to input and update his or her activity report, administrators to maintain the database, and visitors to search and read reports via the Internet. Those databases and user interfaces can handle mixed report formats by storing metadata of formats and constraints. Through an analysis of the update history of the system and e-mail records between users and developers, we confirmed that distributed administration style reduced human work load and that the majority of bugs are confined to small components.
