Dodgy Date


Mathis found a bug in the Virtual Library in reviewing the unmatched documents.

Traced it down when the documents were added directly from the filesystem, a script attempted to automatically discern the year of publication from the filename. It looks as though it created a bogus date which when converted to an integer number of seconds since 1970/01/01 overran the python range for numbers. After figuring out exactly which document was causing the problems, I edited the document and changed the date to 1970/01/01 (which incidentally won't show up when browsing, since each year has to be added manually).
