As an archivist, I would like to record and export parallel statements of extent.
The current application allows parallel statements of extent to be recorded in the Container Summary field, but this unstructured content cannot be exported in an EAD3 <physdescset> parallel entry. We would like to be able to record this information in a structured way, and have it exported correctly as a <physdescset>--including specifying the physdescstructuredtype attribute of each entry.
We would also like to have our existing unstructured data parsed and migrated into the new structure, if possible.
Dev Pri reviewed this ticket and would like to more detail on how the parallel <physdescset> elements be implemented. Also recommend that the final statement re parsing and migrating existing data be split off into a separate, but linked, ticket.
