Hi Dominique

Just thought I'd let you know that the next release of Greenstone (2.71)
will include a (customisable) web based interface for adding documents
to an existing collection.
The collection will need to be set up in the usual manner using the
Librarian Interface (or other method). Then authorised users will be
able to submit documents to it, add metadata, and have them
(incrementally or semi-incrementally, depending on the type of
collection) added in to the index and database.
The documents will be imported using standard greenstone plugins, so
conversion to html will be automatic.
