So...I'm relatively new here (wasn't really part of the CG, etc). :) I came
across Lorestore's Annotator plugin recently, and realized the site for it
included several things that might be of interest for our protocol
discussions.

Judging from past CG mailing list posts, several of you already know about
this project, the people involved with it (Anna Gerber and Damien Ayers),
and could likely expand on it more--but I thought I'd re-share the work
here for other new comers like myself. :)

Here's the main site for the project:
http://austese.net/lorestore/

Things I discovered:
 - Lorestore supports a version ("drafty" one maybe) of OA
 - has a validator on their site! http://austese.net/lorestore/validate.html
 - include documentation for an API that supports several OA representation
types: http://austese.net/lorestore/docs.html
 - has a query API: http://austese.net/lorestore/docs.html#oac
 - also supports Atom feeds: http://austese.net/lorestore/docs.html#oac

Lorestore is GPLv3 licensed and available on GitHub:
https://github.com/uq-eresearch/lorestore

Beyond interesting history, there may also be an opportunity for a couple
of invited experts (if we're doing that right now) as Anna and Damien have
experience implementing the OA data model in an HTTP API that includes
search.

Just sharing. :)

Thanks,
Benjamin
