 From a vague recollection, the Leeds Beckett OAI feed had a weird 
characteristic and I had to code in a change so it could pick up your 
youtube videos. So perhaps some lived on youtube? Nick could confirm.

I think holding a physical copy of something is perhaps too content 
focused on what an OER is. I get a lot of WordPress blog posts as OER, 
and these do not tend to being a single physical copy, lest you PDF the 
page or some such on submission? Also, then, sooner or later what of 
revisions and so on - each change leads to a replacement, or a new 
deposition? Something akin to the Xpert / XOT relationship? Or possibly 
git.

This is perhaps a problem with repositories - they are perhaps more 
built for a static end product than a living evolving thing.

I suspect the space required to host all the content would be huge - not 
sure how much AWS would cost, or even if amazon would be something we'd 
wish to support in using their products.
