Some questions on Zeerex. The first two were incontrovertable, but the
ones below aren't immediately clear from our documentation.
My answers were:
3) That sounds sensible!
And we should make a note of it.
4) The short form. (as we use the short form everywhere else apart from
the attribute that identifies the full URI)
5) You shouldn't ever give the diagnostic schema, as you can never
retrieve documents with it. (Otherwise we run into the problem of real
diagnostic vs diagnostic record)

3) The configInfo documentation is unclear if the <default>, <setting>
or <supports> tag could be applied to any of the types; the Zing page
at http://www.loc.gov/z3950/agency/zing/srw/splain-doc.html lists these
as three mutually exclusive sets. My server will not be able to support
caseSensitive=false searching for example. I'd like to indicate that
<setting type="sortCaseSensitive">true</setting> to inform the client
that it will not accept case insensitive sorts. I presume its OK to do
4) The documentation is not clear whether <default
type="indexSet">...</default> should contain the index schema identifer
(http://www.loc.gov/zing/cql/bath-indexes/v1.0/) or the index schema
5) Does the schemaInfo for the diagnostics record schema need to be
specified? SRW says its mandatory, so it seems redundant to specifiy
it. And I certainly don't want to imply that clients can send SRW
searches that request this schema.
My apologies for the long list, but any guidance would be greatly
