If you're of the school of thought that claims that the output of an automaton should be a credited to their instigator, a single person can produce a serial (potentially) infinitely.

Yes, Ray Denenberg has it right.  It seems rather common for "indefinite" (unknown end) to be mistaken for meaning "infinite" (without end).  This was why many people would claim that serials could not be put under personal name main entry (AACR2-speak), since a single person can't produce a serial "indefinitely"—they will die at some point.  "Indefinite" only means "the end is unknown", not "the end will never come".

“Indefinite, not to exceed 2 Years” (see pos. description below)

 

 

Either the position is indefinite (forever!) or it is “Not to exceed 2 years.” Can’t be both. Who puts out these kind of announcements?
