[EP-tech] Re: Possible importing BibTeX bug in monograph

The default EPrints config:
uses ' technical_report', not ' technicalreport' - which is the root of this issue.

These lines:
should be mapping that value OK.

It looks like somehow, the underscore is being stripped out?
In this commit: https://github.com/eprints/eprints/commit/cf70ab4ee1ce48e88c2eaee2a2b369b331ce4de9
the underscores were escaped with a '\\'.
I'm not sure why - or whey this was removed.

Can you try altering this:
$epdata->{monograph_type} = "technical_report";
to this:
$epdata->{monograph_type} = "technical\\_report";

to see if it helps?

NB This is guess-work. I've got a 3.3.10 repo to tinker with at the moment - before this change was made.

Hi George,

> you must see it's empty.
no, it's filled :)
Please check your XML export carefully (not in the morning ;)):
It should contain the language independent
<monograph_type>technicalreport</monograph_type> ...!?

> If you confirm this (or anybody else), I'll file a bug report to EPrints
the one and only thing that's missing now:
should contain a line with
<epp:phrase id="eprint_fieldopt_monograph_type_technicalreport" ref="Technical report" />
Probably all other options are missing also ...!?

This line should be integrated into (maybe implied by these lines ...)


BTW: Some additional lines missing in <EprintsPath>/lib/lang/en/phrases/system.xml follows:
eprint_fieldhelp_editors (en) at line 477 in /usr/share/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/MetaField.pm
<epp:phrase id="eprint_fieldhelp_editors">Specify the responsible person for publication.</epp:phrase>

lib/searchfield:help_counter (en) at line 757 in /usr/share/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/Search/Field.pm
<epp:phrase id="lib/searchfield:help_counter">Enter a specific number or a range (Min.., Min..Max, ..Max) for the unique database identifier.</epp:phrase>

... and maybe (unfortunately I couldn't recover my modifications) due to phrase renaming
<epp:phrase id="eprint:workflow:stage:type:title">Type</epp:phrase>
    <epp:phrase id="eprint:workflow:stage:files:title">Upload</epp:phrase>
