Hello Iain and All,

Is there any further update from the April 2018 note above?

In particular I am looking at supplemental data again.  At present we generally treat it as one of the publication files rather than a dataset on our repositories.  The lines are blurred.  It looks like we will need to retain a way to identify that there are supplemental files rather than the final dataset at least for the medium term due to the implementation issues noted.

If there are any other thoughts or outcomes to this discussion would be interested to hear.  Perhaps there is another meeting planned soon and there willl be an update.
