[MEI-L] Problems with transforming to 3.0.0

Hello List!

My name is Jonas Mortensen and recently started as a student assistant at the Danish Centre for Music Editing who are working on the MerMEId project.

I am fairly new to this world of XML schemas, XSLT as well as MEI so bare with me if my descriptive capabilities on the subject are lacking.

I am currently working on readying MerMEId for MEI 3.0.0 and have stumbled in to some problems when transforming MEI 2.1.0 files using the mei21To30.xsl file on Github.
I have discovered the following bugs:

·         The <acqSource> element is not part of 3.0.0 but is not removed in the transformation

·         The <notesStmt> element now requires an <annot> element but is not removed in the transformation if it is empty

·         The <p> element under <event> should now translate to a <desc> element (as far as I understood) but instead it is transformed to a <label> element that surrounds all other event-elements (geogName, persName etc.) see example in P.S

I'm glad to be part of the community and I look forward to hopefully many coming discussions!

Regards Jonas
