Wrote presentation

Created a short presentation on the technical aspects of the project for the Leg. library folks next week. Also refreshed all the OAI data, since I was looking at how it worked with a view to explaining it.

OAI records regenerated; validation now working

I regenerated the OAI records, using the build_oai_records.xsl file, and confirmed that no files have been removed or added since the last time; then uploaded the results. I used the validator at http://validator.oaipmh.com to check the repo, and found that trailing line-breaks in the ListMetadataFormats response caused it to be invalid; I've fixed that too. It seems that now the OAI responses are all valid and everything is working well.

XML/SVN training for RM

Spent a while with RM showing him how the SVN system works, and how to encode his bios. He's now encoded two of them, and they're on the site ready for final proofing by GL. He'll continue encoding the bios he's written on Friday. When they're all done, we'll move on to placeography entries.

Colonial Despatches

The project lives at http://bcgenesis.uvic.ca, and the web application runs on the Pear dev Tomcat. The XML data is managed in SVN at http://revision.tapor.uvic.ca/svn/coldesp/.
