CDL-hosted ArchivesSpace plug-in support: generate accession identifiers

The UCSF Library (Industry Documents Library) is interested in utilizing the ArchivesSpace "generate_accession_identifiers" plug-in, as part of their workflow for creating Accession records. Information about the plug-in is available at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/tree/master/plugins/generate_accession_identifiers 

Are other UC campus libraries interested in utilizing this plug-in?

This plug-in has been enabled on a CDL-hosted sandbox instance of ArchivesSpace, for evaluation by UC campus libraries. In evaluating the plug-in, and sharing it with contacts across the UC campus library user group, we learned that it generates accession identifiers across all Repositories within a given instance. Based on the feedback we've received to date, this is problematic -- and campuses have not requested that we install it on their ArchivesSpace instances.
