Description: Contacts have two sources:
-contact, creator, metadata provider (=primary contacts)
-associated personnel, project personnel (=other contacts)
The contacts are combined from their two sources and then displayed like so:
-The primary contacts are displayed in summary block
-The other contacts are displayed in project block (with only the specific project personnel being added in the main project block).
I need to ensure that the EML contacts do not override the contacts coming from the Registry, or that there is duplication.
I will attach some screenshots as soon as I can to this issue, and then hopefully we can decide if the layout requires any change or not.

It's not the Portal's job to avoid duplicating contacts, just to display them.
The Registry will be the authoritative source for contacts.
Currently, the registry-metadata-service augments a dataset with metadata coming from an eml.xml file, but there is nothing downloading these files yet-see http://dev.gbif.org/issues/browse/CRAWLER-19
The registry metadata synchronizer and registry-metadata-service will have to be coordinated. For example, the synchronizer populates the registry with any metadata from the DwC-A, but will never do external datasets. And, the registry-metadata-service will only augment external datasets.
Marking as won't fix.
