A change request for a new @METSID attribute is now on the METS wiki at <http://www.socialtext.net/mim-2006/index.cgi?cr_1_9_add_metsid_attribute_to_mets>. Suggestions for alternative ways to achieve this are appreciated as well.
I wanted to link to this thread from the change request but I can never figure out how to get a generic URL from the listserv archives that doesn't have my email address in it. Does anyone know the trick?
