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

Thank you, John,
Yes, that was our thought as well, that it was the database queries that multiplied.
Thank you for the idea on using automatic fields to simplify the proces. As I understand you, this will only influence on how the editorial rights are handled, and not require changes to the eprints types and how the user sees this. It sounds like a doable approach to the problem, and I will look into it. 
We would probably still like to use the Reviewed Queue package to help the conference reviewing process, but in a way where we won't rely on it as an essential element in submission process.

I think that any editorial-scope options that are 'set' or 'namedset' fields create some big SQL statements when used together (lots of ORs over lots of tables).

It sounds like you need one group for (not conference) and another for (conference).

My approach to this would be to create a field to use for groupings of editorial rights (http://wiki.eprints.org/w/index.php/Training_Video:Automatic_Fields).
If you have an automatic field that stores a value 'conf' or 'not_conf' - you then have a much more efficient (and hopefully quick-enough) way to restrict the review queue.

I can't comment on the 'Reviewed' package in the Bazaar - I haven't used it.

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.
