In order to both minimize the time it takes to process new materials and the chance that new content will be inadvertantly overwritten with old, our scripts only compare and process TARO submissions with datestamps within the last two weeks. What this means for you is that a file you finished and last touched in December 2003 but submitted to us in February 2004 would be ignored–not processed–by the TARO server.
It is therefore important for repositories to either promptly submit completed work to the TARO server, or in the absence of that, open and resave files a final time just prior to submitting them. If you are using XMetal you will have to do a “save-as” (NOT a “save”) unless you made any changes. Simply save it with the same name and say yes when the software asks if you want to overwite the original.
