I fully agree with Simon. A data repo will be hard to realize. A metadata repo might be do-able, sufficiently challenging already, but of great potential, provided that it is well-maintained and where possible and relevant links to the distributed repositories.

One thing needed is to be clear about what we mean with metadata.

E.g., references to repositories? Data about repositories? Aggregate data? Anything else?

Best, Ronald
