Couple quick issues

Hi all,

We've been working on building a Greenstone collection and wanted to ask a
couple questions. We're using GSDL 2.37 on Windows 98 SE.

1. Does the metadata.xml file support filenames with spaces? We've had some
problems with metadata not being associated with the file if the filename
has spaces in its name. If not, would it be possible to add this into the
next release?

2. The export to CD feature copies over version 2.35 of the server.exe file
regardless of which version of Greenstone is actually running. This can lead
to some different behavior in the exported CD from the local version (for
example, PDF entries on exported collections no longer contain a link to the
original PDF). It seems that copying the 2.37 version of the server.exe file
to the exported CD fixes this. Would it be possible to update the "Export to
CD" function to simply copy the current version of server.exe in the
GSDLHOME directory, or could this cause a problem? This way the collection
would behave the same locally and on CD.

Thanks,

Kevin
