Description : an online information archiving system
GNU EPrints is an online archiving system which can store documents in
any format as well as metadata related to the stored documents.
Documents are submitted through a Web-based interface, either as files,
as a compressed bundled file or automatically mirrored from another site
by specifying a URL. Users can view and search the archive through a
configurable, extendable subject hierarchy .
Some more technical details: it's a set of Perl scripts designed to run
with Apache and mod_perl using a MySQL database.
As I'm not a Debian developer, any developer interested in sponsoring this
package is welcome (note however than I do not expect to have this package
ready before Jan-Feb).
