Courts - "First electronic case filings made in Frankfort"

A brief AP story yesterday in the Louisville Courier Journal begins:

Kentucky's courts are taking a step toward making electronic case filing a reality statewide.

The first electronic filings were accepted this week in Franklin County Circuit Clerk Sally Jump's office in Frankfort, the project's test site. Limited functions are being tested before the full eFiling program enters the pilot phase.

Administrative Office of the Courts Director Laurie K. Dudgeon said eFiling should be in place in every Kentucky county by the end of 2015.

ILB: For more, see this Dec. 18th news release and pages 54 and 55 of this document.

Unfortunately, nowhere does the ILB find a definition of what exactly is encompassed by the references to "eFiling" and "real-time, online access to Kentucky civil and criminal cases." Does this mean docket information, as in Indiana, or actual access to the documents, as in PACER?
