[Archivesspace_Users_Group] importing ead with location data?

There's no mapping to import that data from an EAD file.  I think your best bet there would be to use the API to make those updates.  I don't have any examples of how to do that with top containers and locations, but maybe Bria, Noah, or someone else out there has already done something like that?

Is there a way to embed in the ead an actual stacks location of a box, so that when we import the data it comes out with that already populated? Or to automate the linkage? I've already got the stack locations mapped out, as well as a full stacks read, but nothing yet imported.

I've thought no since there is nothing in the ead attributes that is the equivalent, but its worth an ask in case someone else has managed to do this.
