[EP-tech] Re: Editoring speed problem and Review queue option

Hi Hugo,


I wrote the Reviewed Queue plugin to manage our data archive, where we want to mark items as having been checked, but don’t want to release the metadata publicly until the associated paper is published.


I’d have no plans to adapt it to process conference papers – we only use one type of EPrint in our repository, and it is designed to work with the plugins we use for a data repository – ReCollect, CoinDOI and so on.


All the code is on GitHub – the only bug I know to exist for the way I use it is a missing phrase which will be in the next version (when I’ve fixed some other issues I have).  You’d be very welcome to base a sorting tool on that if it’s helpful:




Adam’s produced two videos on making a Bazaar package, so you would be able to share your work back with the community:






Hope that helps!

Thank you for the advice, Yuri. 


It would be very good if the speed problem could be solved, and if I get some indication that this can and will be done, we can wait for this solution. As I said, it is only recently that we tracked down what we believe is the cause of the slow speed in review work.


I should say that we are still running on EPrints 3.3.10, because the upgrade to 3.3.14 involves upgrading the Linux system and we have been a bit reluctant to do this before we had to. But we have plans to do the upgrade soon, to be better able to use the Bazaar options Coversheets and IRstats 2.

Isn't better to fix the slowness? i wouldn't depend, on big projects, on
plugins found on Bazaar if I'm not sure they're well mantained.
