@martinszy great to hear from you - are you familiar with dataportals.org? It owuld be great to get more detailed statistics about data portals into that site. Code for data portals here: https://github.com/okfn/dataportals
@julmot yes, i’m online - about to go grab some lunch - but feel free to leave a message and i or someone else can get back to you
@rgrp we're working on a CKAN extension for semi-automated evaluation, based on ideas of the oklabs/data-quality-dashboard and some of our custom metadata evaluation criteria. Do you think dataportals.org is a better tool for this? Is that list maintained?
I remember discussing once the idea that upon installing a ckan instance, an optional ping could be sent to dataportals.org for automatic subscription, that way it would always be up-to-date
one other thing: toharvest or not to harvest. One of our goals, besides evaluation, is that if a portal goes down, there's a backup site with the same information, so we are harvesting the sites we evaluate
@martinszy i’d definitely recommend using dataportals.org setup. You could do PR on the CSV file there ;-) and we can extend the schema if we need. I’d definitely recommend contributing into that if you can rather than starting something new. (Yes, dataportals.org does need some love but it is working and has been so for 5y! Moreover, it has been upgraded recently, is very simple, and is easy to improve …)
PS: i think it may be good to move further discussion to okfn/chat channel rather than here as that would be more appropriate and have more interested people ...
