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 -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??
