All the literature in repository planning says you should be really clear about the purposes and scope of your repository because that will drive the decisions about how you set it up (and other things too). However, it is really easy to be diverted/overwhelmed/inveigled into
ending up with a repository that has quite different scope and purposes.
This presentation will discuss the pressures, dilemmas and consequences involved in the above scenario, will use examples from my USQ ePrint experience, and suggest some solutions.
