[EP-tech] Re: Eprints like a harvester?

Ian has generalised the problem really well (this is exactly what I do with my twitter harvester).

What are you looking to harvest, Edwin?

Find out what the API of the target gives back, write an importer to
handle that, and then run a regular cron-job to get the latest records
from the target, and import them using your new importer

(that's basically what we do with the Router.... except we get the data
fed to us via SWORD or FTP - we have written importers that translate
the metadata sent to us into the fields we use in our EPrints)
