The present contribution describes features of the CLARIN Standards Information System that have been designed to assist data deposition centres in CLARIN. We also show what is needed and what has been done in order to go beyond the originally designated target, so as to provide service to sibling and descendant research infrastructures, of which DARIAH and Text+ are taken as examples. This paper is aimed primarily at representatives of research infrastructure nodes, responsible for preparing and sharing data deposition information about their centres or repositories. It assumes a degree of technical knowledge or experience in using the XML format and tools, the REST API, and version control systems.
