Hi sebastien,

Yes, the patch looks promising. :-)

Your answer makes me wonder if that will really be complete then. I 
think I'll gather the required dependencies from the sql dump in order 
to have complete control over what is inserted. May VIM support me on 
this impossible quest.

No, I hoped EPrints would silently recreate them, such a //= kind of 
thing. When e-prints or users are created, those dependent entities are 
created as well. So naive-me would wish the system would make sure, on 
the epadmin recommit command at least, that every dataobj is fully 
functional and lacks of nothing the system would likewise care for when 
creating it anew via the web interface. But then, as a programmer's 
notion, this requirement yet smells of smelling code unless planned and 
thought-over and drafted for a month or so. :-)

Kind regards
