A new minor revision to the METS Schema is now available.  This revision adds 'EAC-CPF' to the MDTYPE enumeration:

EAC-CPF stands for the Encoded Archival Context - Corporate Bodies, Persons, and Families.  The EAC-CPF Schema is a standard for encoding contextual information about persons, corporate bodies, and families related to archival materials using Extensible Markup Language (XML). The standard is maintained by the Society of American Archivists in partnership with the Berlin State Library.
