Hello Rama,

Greenstone uses the third party's software to convert PDF files to HTML,
it seemed that the converting froze when processing that file. I also
noticed the file name is very long and contains diacricts, maybe you could
try making it shorter and all ascii. If that doesn't help, you could use
UnknownPlug to include that file in the collection (you need to change the
file extension). However, that file would not be full text searchable
since no text is extracted.
