Keynote presentation at 2020 NIH/NLM workshop on generalist repositories. Central themes include software as a richer pathway to data than articles, the development of new metrics for software (such as the CHAOSS framework), working with the technology companies through organizations like the Eclipse Foundation, and the importance of linked data. In particular, the concept of the "value line" as a means to map generalist repositories represents an important opportunity.
