(Tim has modified this from the original report to provide more description of the problem)
In 1.8.0RC1, the OAI-PMH / OAI-ORE Harvesting settings no longer seem to work.
You can replicate this problem by doing the following:
- Create a new Collection on demo.dspace.org
- Edit the Collection, and switch it to a Harvesting Collection (via the Content Source tab)
- Attempt to setup a Harvest – unfortunately it will not work properly, as you'll notice the following issues:
- Metadata Formats is an empty list
- The Test button doesn't seem to do anything
- Pressing "Save" will just clear all your existing configurations.
