I have some xml and I want to group distinct by year and weekno. All the the attributes are in the same elements like this example.

<item id="2" name="kent" type="region">
      <item  id="07/05/2007" type="datesInfo" weekNo="19" year="2007" />
      <item  id="09/05/2007" type="datesInfo" weekNo="19" year="2007" />
      <item  id="02/02/2011" type="datesInfo" weekNo="5" year="2011" />
      <item  id="04/02/2011"  type="datesInfo" weekNo="5" year="2011" />
      <item  id="22/07/2011"  type="datesInfo" weekNo="29" year="2011" />
      <item  id="02/02/2013"  type="datesInfo" weekNo="5" year="2013" />

Output would look like this
2007 - 19
2011 - 5, 29
2013 - 5

I am trying to use the Muenchian method. Here is what I have so far. Below script just gets the unique years. I cant get the weeknumbers in a distinct group by.

  <xsl:key name="years" match="item" use="@year"/> 

<xsl:template match="//item">
    <xsl:for-each select="item[generate-id() = generate-id(key('years',@year)[1])]">
      <xsl:value-of select="@year"/>
