[OAI-implementers] Question about sets

Hi Dean,

I believe if sets are supported, the expectation is that the response
contains all relevent setSpec elements for each record.  So if an item is a
member of two sets, and a request specifies a specific set, the returned
record would still need to list both.  That's how I've always interpreted it.

Hi all,


I wish to use sets (setspec etc), however is it mandatory to include
this with all metadata elements, even if that page was called with the
setSpec tag? (thus it would be just informing the user about what it
already knows - that the resource is part of a specific setSpec).


Just after some clarification,
