I'm a newbie to the GBIF API and I have a couple of questions about 
downloads. As background, I'm looking at the best way of getting data 
from GBIF into the Atlas of Living Australia (the bits we don't have 
already) properly split up into source datasets for attribution. My 

With the occurrence download limits, am I right in thinking that the 
limits refer to the number of download requests being processed 
simultaneously? Can the downloads be of any size in terms of number of 
records and detail?

Instead of being notified by email upon completion, is it possible to 
poll the status of a download?
