icat-bagit-tool demo

Dear all,
I just uploaded a demo for the icat-bagit-tool that shows exporting a
package from an ICAT, see [1]. The demo requires docker (and in
particular permission to access the docker demon) but is otherwise
completely self-contained. In particular, you don't need to install
anything. You should be able to clone the git repo, cd into the demo
directory and follow the instructions in the README.rst therein.
Please give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
Best regards,
Rolf

  • Two options in the meantime
    • Fork the schema in the short term
    • Use the schema without validation
