Although I am not the best person to give opinions about repository software in general, could I ask you to share reasons for considering a different IR system?
What would you like the software to do that your current software doesn't? What do your users say about your current IR?
I assume you don't want to spend a lot of time and money to end up with a system that is very similar to the current one.

Since I don't have much experience with IRs and so far all I can do in meetings is wave my arms and crow about metadata a bunch, I thought I'd appeal to the collective Code4Lib brain for some repository input. If you have an IR at your institution, what do you like about it? Hate? What about the end users? What is your submission process like? Anything you wish it could do that it doesn't? Etc.
