importing archives

Sometimes you may want to reimport archives files. For example, I have done editing of archives files, but I want to do a reimport of the whole collection. Potentially could put the archives files into import folder, then reimport.

I tried this using import.pl -importdir archives -archivedir newarchives.

It was ok (including Identifier) except that some metadata was added: gsdlsourcefilename, Source, SourceFile?, Plugin, lastmodified*. The new bits related to the doc.xml file being processed, the old bits were for the original image.

Is this a feature or a bug? In my case I want it to look like the original. David's idea is that now you are processing doc.xml files so that should be reflected in the metadata.

** think about this. ** generalised exploding? ** write a convert database script - that is all I actually wanted to do in my example. (I ended up just doing that by hand) ** if we explode archives back to import folder, then web doc editing can just modify import folder not archives??
