Hi Peter, all, thanks for the answers. I have more questions assuming
that's okay.

Thanks. The roles there seem to be more clear. Any opinion on CodeMata
versus CFF (see also below)?

Currently, the author list maintained in the source code is cumulative as
far as I know, so old authors are still included as authors, so only use
cases for that would be citing old releases in paper or by the new versions
of software software. None seem likely to me. What do you think?

Rather than where to put it - although that's important, too - my question
is about which DOI? The main one everywhere or somehow try to put there the
version specific one if that's even possible. It seems to me that the main
DOI is the only feasible option.

I was thinking about the Citation File Format as I have seen it used quite
a bit. Any opinions on that?
