Yes, absolutely. I've been in touch using the OpenNeuro support ticket
system for a number of different up- and download issues in the past (not
just data sync related), and I'm currently assembling a list of issues for
the next support request ;) I will definitely report problems so they can
get fixed upstream.

While that may be true, the thing is that openneuro-py is avaiable and
easy-to-use _now_, while it's not even clear whether or when the OpenNeuro
API will change or go away :) (and take the openneuro-cli JS app with it..
would be a bummer!)

Best wishes,
