Here's the motivation: We're working with a group that deposits all their data in the Harvard Dataverse. We're helping with the curation of some of their projects and would like to see those datasets displayed in QDR. We'd like to avoid duplicating them.
: Dataverse already has the ability to show linked datasets via harvesting, such as https://dataverse.harvard.edu/dataverse/qdr
. As I understand it, this only works, though if the specific subset of projects are specified in a harvesting server, which in turn requires superuser status.
I'd like to be able to specify a dataset for linking without the need to create a harvesting set on the source dataverse. Since the data are all open anyway, I don't think there are any structural reasons this shouldn't work, but is this actually possible? If so, how? If not, how difficult would it be to allow this?
