I'm interested in this as well, since I've been having similar questions about the EAC-CPF export. thanks!  -k

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] METS export

Hi everyone,
I’ve been looking at the current METS export from ArchivesSpace, and have found that some information present in the AS record does not end up in the export. Specifically, most of the information in the file version - which we were hoping to display in our discovery system - doesn’t get exported.

I see there’s an item on the short-term development plan to address METS export [1], but it looks like we need to come up with a solution in the short term, so I’m looking for some advice on the best course of action:

  1.  Write a plugin to address METS export. It looks like the aspace-110-plugin [2] includes some code that addresses EAD export, so I could look at that to get a clue on how to do this.
  2.  Make changes to AS core code and submit a pull request.

Which of these would be preferable, or is there another option I’m not thinking of that would be better? I don’t want to work at odds with any other development that’s going on.
