Hi Jaime,

Yes, this looks like a case of dueling requests, since this ticket:


then wanted mixed content added back into the unittitle.

I think the nuance I missed there is that regular tags should be allowed and kepy, except for unitdate, which should be stripped out.

Will update the original ticket and add a fix..

Subject: Nested <unitdate> issue

Hi Chris & Co.,

I am continuing to have issues with imported EAD in regards to the <unitdate>.  Our existing EAD files have the <unitdate> nested within our <unittitle>.  Upon import, ArchivesSpace is recognizing the <unitdate> and properly populating that field, but it is also leaving the content of that tag in the <unittitle>.  I've attached an image.

I thought the nesting issue was supposed to be addressed in this version of the program (version 1.1.0), so I looked at the notes for the release on github.  The problem sounds like BUG #72326468<https://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/72326468>, which is listed with the resolved bugs: https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v1.1.0
