I am not sure if an API is sufficent. I'd like to have a copy of the
source data as well as of the data and scripts that are used to
produce the output data. Anybody who will join my line of work
will get these via rsync.

There is discussion, not much on the American Scientist Open Access
Forum. I am aware of
but there may be others.
In general, an "OAI-PHM data users", polite for "OAI-PMH data
exegetes" list is probably a good idea. I'd be happy to run it, but
I don't want to be the only member.
