Re: [EP-tech] Query re '/opt/eprints3/bin/lift_embargos script and embargo length

Hi Annette,

How is your 'embargo period' managed? Are you referring to the field that 
appeared as part of the REF CC tool?

If so (from memory), this doesn't manage an embargo - it's a field that looks 
at the embargo date applied to the document, and the publication date, and 
works out how long the embargo that was applied is (as I said, from memory!).

I'm guessing you can see an entry in the items' history that shows the change 
being made by the lift_embargos script.

To work out exactly what may have happened, we might need a bit more of the 
detail from these.

Subject: [EP-tech] Query re '/opt/eprints3/bin/lift_embargos script and embargo 

We have had an example recently on our  EPrints repository where an embargo on 
a restricted access PDF has been lifted  by the 'lift_embargos' script when 
there wasn't an embargo date but the embargo length  of 18 months had been 
added manually.  From the history it looks like the published date had been 
added the day before but the embargo date not added (human error).  Is there 
any connection between the lift_embargos script ad the embargo length with the 
REF CC v.1.1.1. Plugin ? We are unsure why the full text restriction as lifted 
in this instance and concerned that there may be other instances.

Could anyone with more technical knowledge  of the lift_ embargo script and the 
automatic calculation of the embargo length field in the REF CC tab shed any 
light on the above or offer a possible explanation?
