Summary: For me the take-away was that now we have a repository ecosystem
developing, and the OR catchment extends further and further beyond the
library, *sustainability is the big issue* , and conversations around
sustainability of research data repositories in particular are going to be
key to the next few iterations of this conference. Sustainability might
make a good theme or sub-theme. Related to sustainability is risk; how do
we reduce the risk of the data equivalent of the serials crisis if there is
such a crisis it won’t look the same, so how we will stop it?
