[Archivesspace_Users_Group] I can't find this element in the AS EAD

file_version.file_format_name  is not exported to EAD.

For more info on mappings, see:


( although it gets updated somewhat behind the actual codebase. )

It's redundant, as it's usually the same info as the filename extension on the URI, and if it's a URL to a server, the server should be serving a mime type in it's headers. In fact, for internal and other uses, it would perhaps be more useful if the values contained mime-types instead of file format names.

Do you have a use case where you need this value exported ?

I am looking for the the File Format Name for a digital object using AS 2.0.1 (see attached Untitled 1 picture).  I can't find it in the EAD export.  It should be right here (see attached untitled picture).  We are migrating from File Maker Pro into AS.  We are almost there but we are missing this part.

Thank you for your time and interest
