HMT-MOM is a gradle build project to validate editorial work on the Homer Multitext project. To use it, you must have gradle installed on your computer.
HMT-MOM is Mandatory, because submissions of work to the HMT project are only integrated into the central archive of material to publish after HMT-MOM has validated the work. HMT-MOM is Ongoing because you can (and should!) use it regularly as your editorial work progresses. HMT-MOM allows real Maintenance of your work, because it provides external validation of your work that is qualitatively different from repeating or proof-reading.
HMT-MOM is organized by physical units of the text being edited. You should always pass HMT-MOM's full suite of tests for a single page before progressing to the next page.
HMT-MOM is currently (June, 2015) being revised in coordination with an updated edition of the HMT Editor's Guide, for use in the CHS 2015 Summer Seminar.
Material currently in wiki https://github.com/homermultitext/hmt-mom/wiki should be migrated here.
