[EP-tech] generate_views

Hi All,

My earlier question still stands, but altered a little bit.

Apparently a "viewID" can be used to stipulate which views should be
updated by the generate_views script. Is there any possible way of adding
further stipulations to this? For example, I'm unlikely to receive deposits
for items earlier than 2017, so there doesn't seem to be a point in
updating these every week. I would ideally like to say "update the year
view, but only for the sections that have a year value > 2017".

This would remove the vast majority of EPrint records from this particular
view generation and maybe speed things up a little bit.
