Subject [greenstone-devel] alerting services for greenstone?
Hi everyone,

We currently have Andrea, a Masters student from Germany, working with
the Greenstone team here in New Zealand. She is looking to develop an
alerting service for Greenstone, and would like your help in designing
the service.

It would be great if you could spare some time to fill in her
questionnaire, at http://an.andaka.org/diplom/gsdl-as/

Below is the information from Andrea.

I'm a Computer Science student at the University of Dortmund, Germany.
Currently, I'm writing my Diplomarbeit (the German equivalent of a
master's thesis) at the University of Waikato, New Zealand. The subject
of my thesis is to develop an alerting service for Greenstone. This
service will let you define your interests, and then you will be
notified of any events concerning Greenstone collections, the Greenstone
software, etc. that match your interests.

To find out exactly which features this service should have, I need your
help. I've created a questionnaire (
http://an.andaka.org/diplom/gsdl-as/ ) with some questions about your
wishes. It would help me very much if you'd fill out this questionnaire
yourself as well as forward this mail to any other Greenstone users that
you are aware of. For example, if you are administrating a Greenstone
collection, please tell the users of your collection about the

After all, the alerting service might well be very useful for you once
I've implemented it -- this is your chance to make sure the features you
need will be included

Regards and thanks in advance,
