System allows input of contradictory dates

Project:RUcore Workflow Management System (WMS)
Version:8.1
Component:Metadata
Category:bug report
Priority:normal
Assigned:yuyang
Status:postponed
Description

Record has the following MODS metadata:
<mods:originInfo>
<modsateCreated>2009</modsateCreated>
<modsateCreated point="start">2009</modsateCreated>
<modsateCreated point="end">2010</modsateCreated>
</mods:originInfo>

In other words, a single date (2009) conflicts with a range of dates separately input as start date=2009 and end date=2010.

If metadata creator inputs a start date and an end date, then the system should not allow input of a third date (or if metadata creator inputs a single date, the system should not also allow input of a range of dates).

I suggest to postpone this to a later release. This is really a low priority/high cost feature, and a cataloger with proper training can easily avoid the problem stated. -YY
