Actually, that record is not a group, but a catalog record itself...
see my thoughts I wrote up this morning:


I did create an actual group, to which I will add the currently listed
12 data sets LODD 'redistributes'...

I have send around this meeting within the LODD group, and several
participants will join in.

Right now, it would be good to get those CKAN definitions tuned for
what is supposed to be in a record. I have outlined some problems in
that blog post given earlier, and hope that this can be the start of a
general clean up effort...

Whom should we talk to, to get those definitions of what is a
'dataset' worked out?
