[EP-tech] Re: Setting OAI output plugins in EPrints 3.3

Thanks for the tip!

Adding this line to my export plugin made it appear in the OAI interface:
$self->{metadataPrefix} = "nl_didl";

We use different mappings for different repositories however.

I can reproduce the old behavior by adding the following to plugins.pl:
$c->{plugins}->{"Export::DARE_OAI_DIDL"}->{params}->{metadataPrefix} =
"nl_didl";
$c->{plugins}->{"Export::OAI_UKETD_DC"}->{params}->{metadataPrefix} = undef;
...
