Improve original metadata population in OME-XML

There are a few things that should be done:

  • Change the value of the 'Namespace' attribute on *Annotation. Right now, it points to the SA namespace, but that is incorrect.
  • Use a single XMLAnnotation for each key/value pair, instead of a ListAnnotation that links to two CommentAnnotations. For instance:
<XMLAnnotation ID="..." Namespace="">
  <ExtraMetadata xmlns="..." targetNamespace="..." ...>

(In [7038]) Adjusted original metadata population, so that it doesn't take nearly as much time or memory. Closes #574, see #564.

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

(In [7068]) Finally finished fixing original metadata population, closes #564.

We now use a single XMLAnnotation for each key/value pair, like so:

<XMLAnnotation ID="Annotation:0" Namespace="">





And the generated OME-XML actually validates!
