Hi Diego,

I'd be pleased if this system ends up getting wider use. It will
(eventually) be available to anyone who wants it at
http://www.maflt.org. The project plan is to start testing 6/15,
however I'm way behind.

The data entry/work flow system is MySQL + Spring Application
Framework (Java) + ZK Application Framework (a very nice Java/XUL
based tool for front end development: http://www.zkoss.org).

The middleware is OAICAT (http://alcme.oclc.org/oaicat/index.html)
which will expose the data via OAI-PMH. So then Greenstone should be
able to import the metadata and the documents. (I'm still waiting to
hear what the server needs to provide so Grenstone can get the actual
documents.)
