NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       scrollkeeper-gen-seriesid [--help]

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 document 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 documents 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.
