As a software author, I want to able to see the citations of my software aggregated across all versions. so that I see a complete picture of reuse.

This can be possibly translated into two more granular questions: 1) how to represent new software versions with PIDs (e.g. mint a new PID, or modify an existing one, or change PID-associated metadata, …); 2) How to use PID-supported representations of software versions in order to aggregate all the versions.
