Repository software evaluation

The OARINZ Project (Research Repositories in New Zealand) have published a Technical Evaluation of Selected Open Source Repository Systems - essentially a side-by-side comparison of Eprints, DSpace and Fedora.  I confess to not having read it in detail yet (I skipped straight to the conclusions :-) ) but it certainly looks like an interesting comparison.

On the face of it, it doesn't appear to go the level of detail I suggested might be useful in my Notes about possible technical criteria for evaluating institutional repository (IR) software.  On the other hand, it probably takes a more realistic approach - when I wrote those notes I had the luxury of not actually having to undertake a real evaluation or make a real decision!
