[Archivesspace_Users_Group] RFC: Should a revision statement be produced on import?

Hello all,

Locally at Harvard, there's a desire to have a revision statement be added to records when imported into ArchivesSpace from EAD.  Our rationale is that import into ArchivesSpace from other systems/formats is a significant event in the lifetime of the record, and that it's appropriate to track it in record content as well as in the creation time of the db record.

If there's general approval of the idea, I can package up our code so it can be added to ArchivesSpace proper, and make it available as a plugin.

Currently, we plan to add a revision statement reading "Imported into ArchivesSpace" or "Imported into ArchivesSpace via conversion from ${converter_type}."

The Github issue discussing this is here: https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/issues/527
