When you are viewing the directory screen of your construction space, there is a dropbox near the top left, called 
"Actions for current directory".
One of the items which you can select is ""Edit Metadata".  This allows your to fill-out some fields of the default metadata file.

Subject: [LON-CAPA-users] default.meta files

Whenever I click the "publish" button for a resource there is a list of notifications of the form 
" No file: /priv/SOME/PATH/default.meta " 
The contextual online help doesn't say much about those files, rather it speaks about meta data in general. 
Otherwise I didn't find any mention of these files in the online author guide. 
My assumption is that having such files will ease the process of publishing. 
My questions: 
1. How can I create these default meta files. 
2. Once they would be created: would I be able to edit them offline (as I would with problem files)? 
Examples of meta files, or pointers to further documentation would be great. 

Thanks in advance,
