[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Archon migration of Private Titles & other audience='internal' elements

Good morning.

We've just done an initial migration from Archon to ArchivesSpace and found that the Private Title element in Archon migrates to an ArchivesSpace Note with type="Materials Specific Details" and label "Private Title". This is somewhat understandable, as there doesn't seem to be an equivalent to the "Private Title" element in ArchivesSpace. However, all of these Note fields in ArchivesSpace have the "Publish?" checkbox marked, so they show up in the public user interface.

This in itself isn't a disaster, as I think we can have our developer update the database so that any Note field with the label "Private Title" is marked as unpublished. However, we also have a lot of Archon components that were marked as *not* web enabled but are coming into ArchivesSpace with the "Publish?" checkbox checked.

Has anyone else run into this migration issue? I'm hoping that someone else has encountered it and knows how to fix it in the migration tool.

Thank you for any help you can provide!
