scrollkeeper-gen-seriesid - generate a unique id for a document series for use in an OMF
This generates a unique id for use as the seriesid attribute to the relation element in
the OMF metadata. This id is referred to as the "series id" or "seriesid".
The seriesid is used to specify a group (or series) of documents which are related. For
example, multiple versions, formats, and translations of a single document are considered
to be in the same series. Thus, any new version, translation, etc. of a pre-existing doc-
ument should inherit the seriesid of the original document. Only document series which
have never been assigned a seriesid in the past should use scrollkeeper-gen-seriesid to
obtain a new seriesid.
ScrollKeeper uses the seriesid of documents to identify which documents are related to
each other. For example, when creating the contents list, ScrollKeeper must identify if
two documents are in the same series in order to display the most complete set of docu-
ments on the system, using locale fallback for documents which may not be translated into
a given locale, without displaying the same document in two locales.
