Hi all,

(sorry for cross-posting)

The report on the OAI-Tech meeting that has been held at Cornell
University [see
http://www.openarchives.org/oai-tech-cornell/cornell-agenda.htm] is now
available at
http://www.openarchives.org/oai-tech-cornell/cornell_report.pdf .  The
report is also linked from the Open Archives home page

The report describes the nature of the revisions that were identified to
be essential for extending the applicability of the Santa Fe
specifications beyond the original e-print scope.  The timing for the
release of the fully revised specifications is as follows:

November 1, 2000: alpha specifications -- not public
December 1, 2000: beta specifications -- limited public circulation
January 2001: revised specifications -- publication

many greetings
