Subject [greenstone-users] More work with Gatherer/Greenstone
Hello all

Thanks John, I could set the local language to the Greenstone interface, in few
days we'll have completed this work (I will produce es_AR, from Argentina)
dictionary, if anybody wants I could send.

Also I could configure my Samba to using a remote Gatherer. The idea is in the
server Greenstone folder I have two gli's folder, gli and gli2, only the server
could use gli2 because Windows version tests if the folder is called gli. I have
touched a litlle local setup.bat and few bat files. Everything looks working, I
could connect the Windows gli to the Collection used in the server and
automatically uploads the file. I only want that gli will be used from the
Windows machine for Gathering and Enrinching the files (Around this I could set
Preferences, but only remains for the session is there a way to save this
preferences or should I touch the source code?).

My doubt is around the lock file that Gatherer includes. Perhaps two operators
will be working with the same collection using Gatherer, One only for
adding/enriching files and the other for adding/enriching and building the
entire collection. Is there any danger (supposing that the Linux operator will
not re-build the collection when the other user is uploading or enriching?) with
this schema?. The help says that is depending on who saves first. I assume that
Gatherer will not present the "Refreshed" information to the two operators, but
when the Linux user builds will build all the uploaded documents, isnt'it?

I'm looking now for other schema for working. I want a "production Collection"
for all the people and other "in test". When operators end the testing phase
will want to put the "test collection" into "production". I was thinking into
put in the server another gsdl, perhaps in 8088 port (protected by Apache) and
Gatherer connected to this through Connection Tab. Perhaps the following step
will be to produce a script that moves files between the gsdl "sites". Do you
see it possible?

One more thing, I could not find in the help the way that hierarchichal files
are automatically produced, do you mean to import metadata from another files?

Well, think that's all. Thanks a lot and regards.
