[Archivesspace_Users_Group] ARCHON sort titles not migrating

Before I try to find a plug-in for this, do you know if this would have been addressed in the 1.5.2?

According the the specs, this should be migrating into a user defined field with value "Sort Title"—can you check to see if it ended up there, Jesse?  I don't think, however, that ASpace would sort on that field w/out a plugin.

We are migrating ARCHON records to  AS 1.4.2 and the collection titles are coming over alphabetically by title and not the “sort title.”  For example, in ARCHON, the “Papers of John Doe” are listed under D for DOE, but when brought over to AS, all the collections beginning with “Papers of…” are listed under “P.”

Does 1.5.2 fix this?  Or is a plug-in required?  Thanks.
