What’s in the data?

Way back in August, we talked about being able to find the appropriate repository for a client to deposit, and we came up with this rough plan:

Well, we have some results to show for the work so far:

Repositiory types

Repositories in a Network

Repository to network referencing is important because it’s the IP number that tells us where the client is calling from:

What’s what

… and I can even dig out details like what sort of repository it is, and what data it takes:

What is particularly interesting from this table (and shows me where I need to focus coding effort next) is where I get repositories with subtly different URLS, which are almost certainly the same.
