is fantastic to see 'the sw' in my usual browser , brilliant work

especially the faceted browsing

 and some aspect of the navigation and visualization could be improved.

clicked on some resources and found lots of info, but could not get to the
resource , (systems keeps on opening windows of information but never opens
the document) would be nice to have a way maybe color code/flag  to
distinguish information about the resource from the resource itself, for
those who are in a hurry to find the doc

Some of the nomenclature may benefit from some translation
resolvabe uri (uh? maybe add plain language on mouseover)

You can also view the global equivalence
all repositories.  (what?)


properly labelled, it wold be a good opportunity to learn
about these terms

will contact you offlist for more thoughts
