Hi all

Back in 2013, I've run a comparison between those two (plus Fedora Commons,
CDS Invenio and Greenstone).
In http://eprints.rclis.org/19963/ the file (in Portuguese) where I analyse
the software (pages 43 to 55).
I chose EPrints (see pages 91-97) because it fits my needs better than any
other and it's easy to install and customize - I'm not a programmer.
