Hi Cristian

The lastmod date in the sitemap index is set by this line: lastmod => sprintf( "%04d-%02d-%02d", EPrints::Time::get_date_array( time ) )

In 3.3 get_date_array() has been deprecated but for backwards compatibility calls local_datetime(). It looks like there is a bug in local_datetime(), or perhaps using it to provide backwards compatibility for get_date_array() is inappropriate, as it gives incorrect results:

print STDERR Dumper( get_date_array( time() ) ), "\n";
$VAR1 = '2012';
$VAR2 = '06';
$VAR3 = '14';

print STDERR Dumper( local_datetime( time() ) ), "\n";
$VAR1 = 1970;
$VAR2 = 1;
$VAR3 = 1;
$VAR4 = 10;
$VAR5 = 0;
$VAR6 = 1;

Until this is fixed you could paste the following into create_sitemap
sub get_date_array
     my( $time ) = @_;

     $time = time unless defined $time;

     my @date = localtime( $time );

           sprintf( "%02d", $date[5]+1900 ),
           sprintf( "%02d", $date[4]+1 ),
           sprintf( "%02d", $date[3] ) );

and remove the ‘EPrints::Time::’ from the line I included at the top so that this gets called instead of the broken EPrints method.

I don't know why my sitemap.xml file shows this:

<sitemapindex xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/siteindex.xsd">

The lastmod tag values inside sitemap-abstracts.xml.gz file are ok
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/sitemap.xsd">

Any suggestion?
