anybody knows if exist any documentation about pentaho metadata?

I'm testing the suite and I need to know who is the main utility of this tool. I think that is to map logical models againts physical models.
What module/s of pentaho suite uses the information stored in the metadata?

A lot of thanks.

Here you go: http://wiki.pentaho.org/display/studio/Pentaho+Metadata+Editor

At the moment, it contains logical to physical data model mappings, including translations and display preferences for use in reporting only.

All the best,

I downloaded a "MetaData Editor Walkthrough Guide" from the Pentaho site althought I can't recall from where. Try looking for it using the keywords in quotes.
