So the paper needs some work (TM). All required details are minor and most of it is regarding the SI. Apparently that information has to be in the paper (maybe for easy referencing?) and uploaded as separate files. Oh well, you learn something new everyday.
Edit 1: So the SI was split up into multiple files and submitted individually, legends were added. Now there is a reference to "Text S1" in the manuscript - we'll see how the production staff handles that. It will be interesting.
Below is the complete message I got:
Dear Mr Steinmann,
Re: "The Effective Fragment Molecular Orbital Method for Fragments Connected by Covalent Bonds"
we can formally accept your manuscript, a few revisions are required to
enable us to move it quickly to live publication. Please log in to
Editorial Manager to see the requested due date for this task (usually
within five days of this request). If you require additional time, there
