Metadata for collections

Dear all,
I got a question for all the metadata experts out there:
If I understand DataCite right, you'll always have one metadata record
for one single resource and as a consequence one separate metadata
file for each resource. So if you have for instance a collections of
n datasets and you want to describe the collection as a whole and also
every single dataset, you will need n+1 metadata files. These
metadata records should refer to each other via the RelatedIdentifier
property with relationType IsPartOf and HasPart respectively.

Reminder: Virtual Meeting

Dear all,
Tomorrow, at 14:00 UTC our last virtual meeting before P10 takes place. The plan for tomorrow is to check the recommendations document [1] again for open points and
to discuss them in order to have an agreement on what we can present in Montréal and where additional discussions in connection to P10 are needed.
The connection link is the same as always (https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/444770909).

Just a short link to our DARIAH-DE Development Repository, ncluding Bagit bag

Hi @all!
Here comes just a short link to one (maybe quite small) test dataset of
our DARIAH-DE Repository Development Instance:

I will not be able to finish the Bagit-Profile for DH-rep until
tomorrow, but here is just a little teaser for you to look at.
The Bagit bag you can find directly here:

Dear all,
Please keep in mind the next virtual meeting of the Research Data Repository Interoperability WG tomorrow at 14:00 UTC.
The connection link is the same as last time (https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/444770909).
The main topic of the meeting will be an initial collection of minimum requirements for a data package according to our discussion
last time and (if there is enough time) the discussion of possible machine readable package description formats, e.g. bagit-profiles or
