[EP-tech] Plan-S compliance and IDs IDs IDs plugin

Hi all,

One thing that John, Rory and I identified was needed to help EPrint be 
fully Plan S compliant [1] was to enhance the provision for:

"Use of persistent identifiers (PIDs) for scholarly publications (with 
versioning, for example, in case of revisions), such as DOI 
(preferable), URN, or Handle."

At the moment by default EPrints can store only a single ID in the 
id_number field.? Typically, this is a DOI but it does not have to be an 
their is no consistency of what type of ID and how the ID is formatted.? 
Also if there are multiple IDs to store then you could add both these to 
the id_number field but this will prevent the render_possible_doi from 
working properly.? Therefore, I have written a new plugin based on the 
Dates Dates Dates plugin but for IDs, imaginitively named IDs IDs IDs.? 
This provides a compound multiple field (named ids) to store multiple 
IDs with their types.? It provides validators and renderers for each 
type of ID, currently these are:

PubMed ID
ISSN (print)
ISSN (online)

If you add the ids field to eprint_render.pl then each ID will be 
rendered as part of an undordered list (i.e. ul HTML element). There is 
also a pre-commit hook that will take the values in id_number, issn and 
isbn and do its best to add it as IDs with the appropriate types to the 
ids field. This allows for a "epadmin recommit" to initial populate the 
ids field so the old fields can be disabled in the workflow.? It will 
also back fill IDs added to the ids fields into these original fields, 
if these are used elsewhere in EPrints or for exports to third-party 
applications. It uses a set of ID priorities in the order of IDs shown 
above to work out the most important ID to backfill into the id_number 
and/or issn field.

I have added this new plugin to a public GitHub repository [2], so 
people can submit issues and pull requests if they wish to develop it 
further.? I have also added an under development version (0.1) of the 
plugin to the Bazaar [3].? Comments, suggestions and bug reports are 
welcome, so that I can ensure that the plugin is robust and works for 
most people's scenarios.
