Hi all,
I'm new to MESA.
I've been playing with binaries. In binary_history_columns.list:
      J_orb ! orbital angular momentum
      J_spin_1 ! spin angular momentum of first star
      J_spin_2 ! spin angular momentum of second star
      J_total ! orbital+spin angular momentum

It seems that J_total = J_spin_1 + J_spin_2
I expected:
J_total = J_spin_1 + J_spin_2 + J_orb

Am I misunderstanding something?
