SWORD deposit requesting to save content existing on an external code hosting platform
Open, NormalPublic


A researcher may wish to deposit in a scholarly repository, or open access archive, a project that is available in one of the code hosting platforms tracked by SWH.
The repository, in this case, should send a SWORD command containing only the metadata and the url of the project on the code hosting platform.
SWH should then

  1. call the "save origin now" function on the project on the code hosting platform
  2. store the metadata information and return the corresponding SWH-ID to the requesting repository
