At Harvard, we have noticed the following behavior with the permissions assigned to a Repository Manager. Has anyone else encountered this? Are we doing something wrong? Is this a bug?

When I sign in to our local installation of ArchivesSpace as a Repository Manager, I encounter the following:

-          When I click on "System," the "Manage Repositories" does not appear. According to ArchivesSpace documentation, it seems that this option should appear.

-          When I leave the search box empty and click the search button to "search all records,"  "Repository" is listed as one of the Record Types.

-          When I select this, the display lists the record for my repository with view/edit options.

-          When I click on edit, I can edit the repository record, but when I try to save the revised record, I get an error message that says "We're sorry, but something went wrong."
