Operators of legacy catalogues, consumers of legacy catalogues
In many legacy catalogues and repositories (e.g. CKAN), ‘datasets’ are ‘just a bag of files’. There is no distinction made between part/whole, distribution (representation), and other kinds of relationship (e.g. documentation, schema, supporting documents) from the dataset to each of the files.

''Optional link list to documents and projects this use case refers to''
