It would be really good if authors of these sorts of tools could send us information to list them on the PREMIS tools page:

EC> You could have a look at this:

EC>(FITS) to PREMIS and FITS includes JHOVE.

I'm the author of these stylesheets. I have some newer versions (i.e. bugs
fixed) on my Fits In Alfresco forge site:

(They can be used without Alfresco)

The output from FITS can't, by default, be transformed into valid PREMIS - a small timestamp format issue. Also, as the tools that FITS uses output their timestamps in different formats, two tools can agree on a creation time, but FITS will record them as disagreeing, as they use different formats for their timestamps.

The patches in (link above and in previous message) are an attempt at fixing these issues.
