Description (last modified by rgrp) (diff)

Often people who are registering resources want to make the associated material available. We should:

  • Provide a dedicated upload page giving instructions as to upload process
    1. Explain we don't store the data itself on CKAN. Suggest uploading to a store somewhere and then linking using download_url (that is its purpose)
    2. Upload to
      • Talis CC for RDF
      • archive.org
      • grid.okfn.org
  • link to this page from next to download_url item on new package page

In long run (now ticket:186) we may automate this by providing a ckan upload facility which caches the data and then reuploads it to relevant service (disadvantage is "we" are the owner of the data on that service ...)
