      User uploads their paper.pdf, and selects to use creative-commons license, which then adds three cc files to the item. Two of these are internal, but one of the cc-license files is an RDF file which is marked as external, so it will end up showing in the uploaded files section. When the user is working on a submission in progress and goes back to uploads step, they see the cc-licence.rdf file, but not their paper.pdf.
      That happens when they have unchecked (this item will have more than one file). Perhaps a simple fix would be to have the upload tab listing all files in the content bundle regardless of what the (this item will have more than one file) says.

      <PeterDietz> I've perhaps hit a side effect of http://jira.dspace.org/jira/browse/DS-295 – CC License incorrect mime type.
      <PeterDietz> when user creates an item and they leave unselected (this has multiple files), then they upload their paper, and choose cc-license. Well, when it comes back to them in a workflow, in the uploaded-items tab, it shows some license-rdf as only file, and their pdf paper isn't listed
      <PeterDietz> so if they go back and say (this has multiple files), it will then it show all files license-rdf and mypaper.pdf. The reason as my metadata librarian was trying to explain, is that by saying rdf is internal=false, that means its public, thus its shown as an uploaded bitstream to the uploader
      <kshepherd> hmm

      • stuartlewis hmmms too
        <PeterDietz> in the end, once its published, its in the cc-license bundle so it doesn't get shown to end user/visitor, but in the interim, the uploader will be like hmm whats this license-rdf file doing
        <kshepherd> i don't think the "publicness" is a problem
        <kshepherd> it's that silly initial questions step
        <PeterDietz> yeah, I would think that the uploaded step should show all bitstreams that are internal=false, regardless of their choice of saying (this has multiple files)
        <kshepherd> that could be one fix, indeed..
        <kshepherd> "this has multiple files" should be interpreted as "there will be multiple files in the CONTENT/ORIGINAL bundle" by DSpace
