Re: [rda-repoplatforms-wg] Repository Platforms for Research Data

This is a really good point and I would also find it interesting. Even
though there are some comparisons available online, getting feedback
from people who are actually using them and have identified advantages &
issues in each case would be much more substantial.
Looking forward to seeing if there is further interest on this.
Warm regards,
