As a repository manager, I want the General Note in the Accession record to be moved to the bottom of the accession record and relabeled "Repository Processing Note".


See page 9 of the original accessions specification at

The note should behave within the context of the accessions module like the repository processing note present in the resource module.

This note should also be present for the digital object parent record.

The YML file should also be updated to clearly indicate (something like) the following:

"An application-specific field for recording information about processing of the materials. This note is not included in any exports or reports, and is not populated by imports." (which is taken directly from the YML file for the same note on a Resource record)

Of course, we don't know if folks have been using the currently-labeled "General Note" as a processing note, per se, but I believe that the General Note works similarly since it does not show up in the public interface (e.g. However, you can populate that field with the CSV import template, so the code + documentation would need to be updated there, as well.

Relabel the general note as "Repository Processing note" and relocate to the bottom of the Basic info section.
