what are your thoughts about creating country-specific registries for data packages in the spirit of https://github.com/datasets? The Dutch register for example would be located at https://github.com/datasets-nl.
A bit of context: I’m very fond of the frictionless data initiative and am trying to create/use data packages as much as possible. Currently I’m involved in two projects that deal with geo-information about the natural environment. A single data package is interesting/relevant for both projects. The question is: how do I include the same data package in both projects? Currently I have the “master” data package here: https://github.com/openstate/susthacking/tree/master/data/bestand-veehouderijbedrijven that is forked in the other project: https://github.com/FarmHackNL/open-data/tree/master/bestand-veehouderijbedrijven This is of course suboptimal and a nightmare to keep in sync. Hence the idea to create a central registry.
I’d rather not “pollute” https://github.com/datasets with country-specific data and am thinking of creating https://github.com/datasets-nl or https://github.com/datasetsNL to store country-specific data packages.
Including them in other projects should then be done through submodules although I’m not a big fan of them.
Any thoughts on this idea and the format
