Hello, just to briefly comment on this one:

I specifically wanted to avoid using datalad for several reasons:

   - I've seen people struggle to install (esp. on macOS) and use it
   (including myself)
   - the sync between OpenNeuro and GitHub doesn't seem to work reliably,
   so we were having trouble retrieving the latest revisions of datasets using
   - as far as I understand, there's no way to download a specific revision
   (version number) of a dataset using datalad

openneuro-py attempts to do away with these issues.

Best wishes,
