[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Transfer/export to another repository on another server ?

Copying resource records from one ASpace instance to an other, using JSON
 could be problematic.  Those JSON resource records may have links to
related records (Subjects, Agents, Accessions, Locations, Digital Objects)
which won't be valid on the other ASpace instance.  Is this situation, you
would either get an error, or the record would transfer, but it would be
link to the wrong set related records.

The solution for this problem is very challenging, and I think the safest
way to do this for now is by using EAD import/export once the importers are
improved in the next ASpace release.
