Hi Ania,

I don't think Greenstone comes with a plugin to handle Djvu files.
That leaves you with two options, one, if you have perl experience
you could modify another plugin (such as ImgPlug) to work it's magic
on Djvu files. The second option is using NULPlug to add them to the
collection and entering their metadata manually into the Metadata.xml
that resides in the same directory.
I think the easiest way to instruct the NULPlug to process .djvu
and .djv files by inserting something like the following into the
plugin NULPlug -process_exp /.djvu?$/
Don't forget that NULPlug doesn't actually extract any metadata
(width, height, dpi, etc.) from the file, you will have to enter that
manually yourself.
Also, you need a collection-specific receptionist for the
collect.cfg to work. If you don't have a collection-specific
receptionist (if you don't know what collection-specific receptionist
means then you probably don't have one!) you will have to put the
above text into the main.cfg. That last tip comes thanks to Michael;
I didn't know that before today - we only work with collection-
specific receptionists here apparently!
