Snippets are intended to be quick to write notes or bare bones. You should be able to put one together in about 5 minutes. Just stick any code you wrote and a few sentences explaining what it does in a wiki page and add it to the snippets category. It means that in future you will be able to find the snippet if you ever need to repeat the task. Other users might also be able to repeat what you have done. They may choose to extend it, improve it, make it into a plugin or it may even get picked up by EPrints core.

Hopefully snippets will help the EPrints development team get a idea of what it is you guys are trying to do with EPrints.

When adding a snippet please try to include the version of EPrints you wrote it for. This will greatly help future users.
