NAME
       scrollkeeper-gen-seriesid  -  generate a unique id for a document series for use in an OMF
       metadata file

SYNOPSIS
       scrollkeeper-gen-seriesid

DESCRIPTION
       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.
