[EP-tech] Making a static copy of an EPrints repo

I've done this a few times in the past. If it's to leave online but 
static, I suggest removing links to the OAI, search and latest pages 
etc, there's an example here; http://eprints.agentlink.org/

By the way, I really like calling this "fossilisation" as it's a good 
fit for the process of replacing a dynamic site with a static one.
