Thank you, Arthur. There are metadata.xml files under the import
directory in each collection. However, the data in the collections has
been changed since the original import. So, presumably, changing the
metadata and importing again will either duplicate items or eradicate
the changes depending on the import option, right? Or, will the
'-incremental' option update the metadata for the original imported
items without removing new ones?
