Description A succesfully built institutional or community repository (e.g. set of workflows) needs a \emph{coordinated effort of librarians, IT specialists and representatives of users -- content specialists}. We will explain and discuss \emph{design, technical a political decisions} behind building the Czech Digital Mathematics Library DML-CZ (\url{}) in the context of other succesfull thematical community projects (PubMed Central, ADS, SCOAP3 and planned EuDML). A framework developed for handling different types of mathematical publications is presented. It integrates workflow for the articles scanned from a paper, for documents from retro-born digital period (data were available in some type of electronic form) and for born-digital papers (newly published data from publishers). Experience gained, lessons learned and tools prepared during development of the Czech Digital Mathematics Library DML-CZ are described. We describe problems of \emph{migration of existing workflows (born-digital, retro-digital) into the repository'}. negotiations with Google Scholar towards better visibility, indexing and search, and problems of copyright and sustainability issues we have faced.
