Hi, Dr. Rufus.

After filtering out 8 empty visible datasets, we're left with 20 on the OK

All I could find out so far debugging with pdb is that the HTTP request
returned an error (I think it was 404). I'd need more time to investigate
headers and URLs to find out more.

Of course. Here it is:
The blog post will have to wait a bit, I'm afraid.

I'd be glad to help, but I'm a bit short on time recently. If anyone is up
for it, be welcome to use my migration script and ask any questions about
it. If not, I may do it myself sometime (hopefully not too far) in the

And also write a blog post about the process of migration and the high
level CKAN client library, when I can.

Best regards,
