See: http://www.openarchives.org/OAI/openarchivesprotocol.html#Identify The repository must provide an administrator e-mail address in the Identify request.
In the near future we want the harvester to give immediate response to the Repository Administrator to inform about the errors this DRIVER repository is creating. See table below for an example of an Identify response which includes the administrators e-mail address.
The use of an adminEmail in the Identify request is mandatory, and is also dictated by the OAI-PMH protocol. See below:
"The Identify verb is used to retrieve information about a repository."
"The response must include one or more instances of the following element:
- adminEmail : the e-mail address of an administrator of the repository."
