    <p>Hi James,</p>
    <p>Looking through the GitHub compare and doing a diff over the two
      tarballs from files.eprints.org.&nbsp; The only thing I have found that
      could be an issue is a bug fix in the Atom Export plugin which is
      the format that RT2/Elements requests in a response to creating
      items through the item creation requests.</p>
    <p>diff eprints-3.3.14/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Export/Atom.pm
      eprints-3.3.15/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Export/Atom.pm<br>
      56c56<br>
      &lt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; xmlns:opensearch=&quot;'.EPrints::Const::EP_NS_OPENSEARCH.'&quot;<br>
      ---<br>
      &gt;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; xmlns:opensearch=&quot;'.EP_NS_OPENSEARCH.'&quot;</p>
    <p>This change may fix an issue with the Atom XML appearing
      mis-formed to a consumer.&nbsp; However, this may not be a problem for
      RT2/Elements.&nbsp; Also it may have still worked in 3.3.14 but just
      produced a barewords warning that someone wanted to tidy up.<br>
    </p>
    <p>Changes to perl_lib/EPrints/Apache/Storage.pm and
      eprints-3.3.14/perl_lib/EPrints/Apache/CRUD.pm don't look like
      they should have any impact on how RT2/Elements work and beyond
      that I could not find any other files that might affect to
      RT2/EPrints interaction.&nbsp; I suspect Symplectic are saying only
      3.3.15 onwards is supported, as that was the latest version
      available when they first started development/testing and did not
      want the hassle of going through lots of old versions, when they
      probably suspected people would have moved on from these when they
      came to setting up RT2.</p>
    <p>Regards</p>
