Description

To reproduce:
Scenario 1:
  • in source instance, export a multi-level description for which all levels are published
  • in target instance, set default publication status to "draft"
  • in target instance, import the EAD XML file you just exported
    Result:
  • top-level description is published, but all lower level descriptions are draft
Scenario 2:
  • in source instance, export a multi-level description for which all levels are draft
  • in target instance, set default publication status to "published"
  • in target instance, import the EAD XML file you just exported
    Result:
  • top-level description is draft, but all lower level descriptions are published
Expected result:
  • I assume that the publication status, if set in the EAD file, is supposed to be retained. It appears that the publication status is only exported at the top level, and it's not getting inherited on import.
