I have been struggling with the FGDC metadata tools since they were implemented in 10.0, even with the patch. The number of options, the "black box" nature of the tools, the "Completed Successfully" message when it hasn't, translators, etc. make it very difficult. to do any kind of FGDC metadata management. I should be able to create metadata, export it, import it (and choose which elements I want to import) in 2 steps. Export... Then import... I shouldn't have to translate. I shouldn't have to Upgrade. It should just work.
