This presumably requires the tools directory to be installed, which looks to have appeared in eprints somewhere between 3.3.10 (our current version) and 3.3.13 (latest release)?

There is script called Gitaar (https://github.com/eprintsug/gitaar) which can be used to create epmi or epm files from (properly structured) git repositories that don't have them.

However it looks like datesdatesdates has an epmi, in which case you can run

tools/epm link_lib datesdatesdates

and then

tools/epm enable foo datesdatesdates

or enable from the bazaar UI in your repo.

Let me know how you get on.

That one doesn?t have a bazaar package ( .epm ) ? by the (very quick) look of it, you?d need to put the various files by hand into the correct directories within the repository, and possibly have the RIOXX2 code in the repo (also not yet an epm package), though that may not be necessary, just handled if it is already there.

This assumes you?re not trying to use the git clone process that is covered in the RIOXX2 pages?  All starts to get rather complicated at this point!

Another newbie question, can anyone provide an idiots guide to installing from github??

I tried to install https://github.com/eprintsug/datesdatesdates via Upload and Install at the bottom of the bazaar page ? tried the .epmi and full zip but just get a 500 Internal Server error so I?m guessing that?s not the way to do it

I don?t have access to the server but ?learning? together with a colleague from our infrastructure team.
