Hi all developers,

As to complement Tim's email - please join in and get involved! It's 
your chance to become a main contributor to the core code and to make 
sure that your work gets noticed and re-used by the EPrints community. 
It's also a good opportunity to work on some interesting & more modern 
concepts to push EPrints forwards.

(*) You may view the Xapian search/faceting in action: 
http://vmdev1.eprints.org/cgi/xapian - don't get fooled: it's pretty and 
is working but there still are a number of issues to resolve to 
integrate this work nicely into EPrints

(*) Some EPrints4 objectives (ok those are quite low-level, technical 
aspects): http://wiki.eprints.org/w/EPrints4_Status

I will free some code and docs before these events. If you do not have a 
github account yet, I recommend you sign up and look up the EPrints 
git-hub repository: https://github.com/eprints

Looking forward to meeting you all,
