>From memory (through the jet-lag) I modified our eprints a few years ago to return public If there was at least one open attachment on an item as we have many where we received a word document version which is attached and restricted and hidden, from which we have created a PDF version which is then publicly available, so it made more sense to class an item as public where there was something accessible.

cgi/oai2 could be updated so that it could handle filters for searches on the document dataset
https://github.com/eprints/eprints/blob/3.3/cgi/oai2#L778 menas that cgi/oai2 applies the filters in the config to eprints only
More flexible config options could mean that you can send it filters for documents eg

I'm not sure this has any particular advantages to John's method. Maybe having a method to define custom sets of eprints based on document metadata would be useful for other OAI-PMH use cases?
Maybe it would be slower as it is searching a bigger dataset?

Something for discussion:
By default, EPrints sets the eprint->full_text_status field to:
'none' - if there are no docs
'public' - if there are some docs, and all are 'public'
'restricted' - if there are some docs, and at least one is not public.
The full_text_status value is used as a filter in the OAI-PMH Driver set:
which means for items that have multiple documents, of which one is restricted, the item will not be included in the Driver set.
Should there be another option for the full_text_status defined - e.g. 'some_public' - to show that at least one document is public?
Currently, from the full_text_status value of 'restricted', it's not possible to determine whether this means *all* documents are restricted, or whether just one is.
I realise this can be addressed on a repository-by-repository basis by updating the conifg, but I think that making it work better in core EPrints would be best.
