I have tried:
Beyond this analysis based on the Incubator Group cases, Library Linked Data community members should consider helping maintain precise and up-to-date listings of datasets and value vocabularies, such as the [http://ckan.net/group/lld CKAN Library Linked Data group], so that the usage of element sets can be measured.

Antoine, William, Jeff, Marcia: is this what you intended? Or could you please provide more guidance?

Ok, I've tried:
Adding a new package to CKAN aids its visibility: this is a frequently consulted list of packages.
