Given our frequent complaints about incorrect metadata, would anyone like to have a guess at how many meta-updates I've received since I installed Logos in November 2009?

How can you tell?

I'll guess 2.

There's a metadata table which contains a notice of every update. Since November 2009 there are 1,628 entries spread over 84 different batches! For example, the entire Hermeneia series had a metadata update just three days ago. Unfortunately there's no way of telling what the update is. When Logos requests a metadata update, the server sends all the metadata for that resource through, not just the correction. A metadata update looks like this:

<s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">

Mark Barnes:
spread over 84 different batches!

Wow Todd, you were actually pretty darn close.  You didn't do that strikeout edit after Mark posted, did you? Wink

No I actually looked in the same place he did. I didn't know exactly what Mark's start date was so I used Nov 15.  The first number (284) was the total number of unique metadata timestamps on resources since that date. Second number (86) narrowed the count to unique date stamps (since the timestamp includes hours,minutes & seconds: "2010-08-31T22:51:05Z", there would be several entries for the same "update", so I merged all the ones occuring on the same day).

Impressive detective work Smile (to both you and Mark)
