As a DITA information architect, I want to learn how to convert URI (hard-wired) references to key-based references outside a CCMS.

      Description

      • Astoria has some technology to do this INSIDE their CCMS.
      • Rudolfo Ryan may have some tooling here that has helped them with conref/keyref conversions for L10N.
      • Perhaps the first step might be documenting best practices for how to do the conref-to-keyref conversion manually.
      • It would be good to provide instruction/support for BOTH individual users doing a manual upgrade/conversion and vendors/CMSs doing an automated upgrade/conversion
      • Possible TC issue: shouldn't the spec provide tooling/meta-scripts for these sorts of upgrade issues??

      Eliot Kimber has a utility for this, a transform called "Make Keydefs" which can be found at: https://github.com/dita-community/dita-utilities.
