[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Container lists re-ordering after saving

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for this.
I just looked, and I think the issue is when reordering a resource's instances in edit mode, the ordering reverts to the default sort ( which is based on the instances id, not the updated order ).  Let me know if I'm missing something there... I've made a ticket for this here =>  

Br. Raphael:
By placing agents and subject in alpha order the hard way, are you saying you'd like a default alphanumeric sort order on resource agents and subject?

Hi all,

Me too.  I figured that I would reorder the container list after I
finish adding agents and subjects to each container.

Also I am getting tired of placing agents and subjects in alpha order
the hard way.  There must be a means to make it happen automatically.
