When we create a data package with a data object by the new data package wizard and entity wizard, a resource map document will be generated as well.

Morpho has explicit ways to change the the access policy for the metadata and data objects. There is no explicit ways to modify the access policy for the resource map document. I guess we has implicit way for the resource map - it will be modified when you modify the access rules for the metadata object (eml document). However, this doesn't work. After i successfully modified the metadata's access policy, the resource map doesn't change.

Making it match the EML document is the best course for now I think. It will be confusing to have a separate approach for packages than EML.

Now setting the ORE permissions when setting EML permissions on the CN. Using the naming convention where "resourceMap_" is prepended to the EML identifier. This is fragile. Perhaps we can look up the ORE identifier from the CN since it has query capabilities that should expose this information.

I just tested to change a local data package's access policy. The resource map file still keeps the same. In other word, changing the local eml document's access policy doesn't change the local resource map file.

I hadn't written code to do that since I thought no one would ever see it, but if we save a local package to the network, those access rule will apply. I will add code to the local data store to handle local setAccess for ORE. Thank you

Now saving the ORE systemMetadata changes locally when setting access policy and replication policy.
