Thanks to all who have contributed since my recent mail. What we'd
like to do now is to get an idea of what kind of metadata we can attach
to entities in the map: in database terms, to work out what kind of
'schema' might work best.

We think an effective way of working this out is to see what might fit
and go from there. To that end, you'll see that there is now an "URL"
link (as well as "% reproducible") to a few of the entries. Could
folks add corresponding entries to the projects they happen to know

If "% reproducible" doesn't make sense for an entity, feel free to try
something else that makes sense... or simply leave it blank. And there
is no need to add a long explanation or any commitment to keep it up to
date — the idea at this early stage is merely to work out what kinds
of metadata *might* work. Hope that makes sense: this is all very
freeform for now.

Cheers again. :)

Best wishes,
