This paper presents the eCrystals Federation project, which represents an entire community engagement in a deployment of the 'open data repository' model supporting the research data lifecycle. The project is establishing a number of open data repositories across a variety of crystallography laboratories around the world, based on the concepts proved by the eBank-UK project and the Southampton eCrystals data repository. This whole community involvement involves a collaboration between crystallographers, archivists, librarians, subject repositories, data centres, publishers and information providers. Building on this data repository federation we present an analysis of the surrounding issues which primarily include community interactions, interoperability, advocacy, sustainability and curation.
