[Archivesspace_Users_Group] MARC XML import

Hi all,

I would really appreciate another set of eyes on these two errors I'm getting while testing ingest of MARC XML (resource records) from our library catalog into 3.2:

 1.  lang_materials/0/language_and_script/language : Property is required but was missing
I've tried a few different things here and can't pinpoint the problem. There isn't a MARC field that maps to this ASpace field in the most recent import map<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jU6MYF7UI7a-UKdd5XhYCV6W1UyrMMCzYDFlgb8iNW8/edit#gid=1527709562> (unless I'm misreading it, which is entirely possible - it's been a long day), but native ASpace resource records exported as MARCXML will import back in with language and script data, so I can tell there is a MARC field that maps to this. Based on MARC XML from resource records created in ASpace, I tried adding language info in 040$a or 041$b, but neither resulted in a successful import, just the same error message. Is there a MARC field I'm missing in the import map and/or the ASpace-generated MARC? The Help Center<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/ArchivesSpaceUserManual/pages/917405730/Languages+Sub-Record+as+of+v2.7.0> does say this field can be imported as MARC XML, but doesn't say how.
 2.  notes/0/subnotes/0/content : Property is required but was missing

I see that other folks have encountered this error with an index number to point them to the note that's missing content, but lacking one here I'm not sure where to start. And looking at my sample files with my fallible human eyes I don't see any empty fields. Has anyone run into this before? Is this just pointing at my missing language field?

If there's a resource or guide I've missed - especially for interpreting import job errors -- please point me to it! MARC XML is attached (with the added 040 and 041 fields) in case it's helpful.

Thank you!
