Description: Dear GBIF,
We would like to edit the title for our "node name", please enter both Acronym and name, i.e.: DanBIF - Danish Biodiversity Information Facility
Please correct the first line in Address to be only our Acronym, DanBIF
Finally: Please ASAP remove the old provider  from the list at - it looks like we have no datasets published when in fact DanBIF host everything on our new IPT (we had a grave misunderstanding with the university dean because of this).
We know you are extremely busy these days, but we would be most grateful if this could be done before the official launch of the portal.]]>

([], we received a follow-up email, making this a highly critical issue. Could you estimate what is realistic to be done on short notice?)

The list in question ( is reached through -> section "endorsed publishers" -> click on "more"

The issue is that the data publisher, while having an installation and thus hosting numerous datasets for other institutions, does not "publish" own datasets. This results in some misrepresentation in both the list of publishers at ("Danish Biodiversity Information Facility: 0 published datasets.") and the publisher page at

Suggested general changes:
1) in the publisher list, do either not display institutions with a count of 0, or provide alternative text ("owns 0 datasets, hosts xx datasets")
2) on the publisher page, include a section for "hosted datasets" or a count ("hosts xx datasets for other institutions"

Short-term fix: filter the publisher list to only display institutions where the count is greater than 0.

Hiding zero dataset phrase now:

counting number of hosted datasets is in theory possible, but requires an API change which we cannot handle before the launch anymore. Can we close the issue with this fix and a separate issue about number of hosted datasets?

Comment: Still need to verify that the updated IMS information does make it through. Taking this issue over and will close once confirmed. Agree about opening the "hosted" count as a new issue.

Comment: Happy to report, the hosted installations are visible on the publisher page now, e.g.

Comment: [] you mentioned on Friday that the datasets hosted on behalf of other publishers could be nice to show on the publisher page. E.g. on Would you like to create a new issue for this?

Comment: I think it is good for now - from the IPT installation link it is only one more click to get the list. I'll file a (minor) feature request for including a summary count in two places, but we may want to discuss that first.
