There was a data formatting problem is the publication date field. Java
DataFormat was used to check, but it was not set to accept the EML specified

show an example of the correct format.

Ideally we should let the user input the date in a variety of formats and then
reformat it properly automatically.

also deleted (but never re-written). Now working on a backward-compatible

and added dummy taxon citation title node to wizard's dummy datapackage in
