[EP-tech] Re: Notify on Approve



At the Open University, we have recently implemented a function (with the kind help of eprints services!) to send a notification to the depositor plus the authors of an article when the article is moved to live from the buffer (it doesn't include editors but could do with a simple modification).  It makes use of the username entry in the creators fields and user table to identify local authors (and get their email address from the user table) so may not be entirely helpful outside of our configuration, but it may be of some help?

user->mail() does it by default. Check the code you can find on other 
plugins (the reject one does send an email to the user).
