The OAI listing is simply sites that have passed the OAI protocol checks,
whereas we're more interested in the type of content.

By the way, the listing on GNU EPrints is taken from,
so by registering with archives.eprints and specifying the software as
GNU EPrints (1 or 2) and when the addition is passed it should appear
in both places.
