Michael has fixed this. We need to update nzdl.org and test it.

Comment from mailing list, currently releases also fail on this test, this should be checked as well:

Resolution: fixed

I have set up an svn version of greenstone on puka, at http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/gsdl-svn/oaiserver

This contains two collections, demo and oai-e.

It passed all the tests at http://re.cs.uct.ac.za/, although a lot were not performed, particularly ones to do with resumption tokens. It also passed the tests at http://www.openarchives.org/Register/ValidateSite

Then I iset the resumeafter field (in gsdl/etc/oai.cfg) to 5 to make it use resumption tokens.

The tests at both validators passed. yippee!
