Hello MODS folks,

We are adapting several of the MODS transformation stylesheets for use in a
new Islandora instance in Florida, namely DC-to-MODS / MODS-to-DC and
MARCXML-to-MODS / MODS-to-MARCXML (v 3.4).  For the most part things are
going well, but I have a question about the MARCXML transformations.

The MARCXML to MODS 3.4 stylesheet has very recently been updated and looks
great.  We are having problems, however, with the MODS to MARCXML
stylesheet, which hasn't been updated to reflect the new changes (not
updated at all in about a year, it looks like).  We have little
expectations for a perfect roundtrip, but we're still trying our best.

So, two questions: one, will the MODS to MARCXML stylesheet be updated
anytime soon?  And two, does anyone have stylesheets they'd be willing to
share that do a decent job of round-tripping?  While we can update the
stylesheets here, it would be nice to use work that's already done (or wait
for work in process).  (Conversely, we are happy to share our stylesheets
to anyone who wants them as well.)

Thanks so much,
