Subject [greenstone-devel] Mode=accumulate, OAI-PMH
Hi all,

why does the metadata 'mode' default to override? I just seems weird to override perfectly good metadata, and I cant see when I'd want the default behaviour.
-I know how to change the default behaviour by editing doc.pm - I am considering adding a flag so this behaviour can be changed without breaking existing collections. (this is how i spend my evenings)

Has anyone done any code for gs to generate an OAI-PMH file for harvesting? I am interested in exposing a gs collection via OAI-PMH and I am thinking how best to do it? I am leaning to a plugin-but I suspect a classifier may be a better choice (access to the macro template system). Any advice? Regards,

Stephen
