Topic: 'Pass-through' requests
Sometimes, people have a project website somewhere, which they would like to share with the RC community. At the moment they would probably create an exposition paste some text in there with a URL to their project in effect duplicating metadata. We could have a new type of object (a 'work') which would contain metadata as had but like an exposition show a button 'Go to site' (or something similar) which would allow to directly open that page.
I can see the problem that less people might be using the RC for the materials themselves, I still see more advantages - less redundant data, more integration of interesting external projects - there's lots around which RC users cannot find. (Would even be better if those could be harvested, but that is a different question.)
This would be a minor development which would help complete a researcher's profile and add materials to our community.
What do you think?
