UNC and Duke both experienced issue. When added gem to hyrax and tried to bundle install, failed with error message as per issue.

Tom: wants people to be aware that there is an abstract interface in Hyrax for creating new virus scanner. You can swap out for clamav. Has also seen false negatives or positives with clamav if not configured properly that happen silently (couldn’t remember which way it was)

Jennifer : It looked to me that some of the clamav option names had been changed in the main project, but the gem has not been updated to reflect these changes.

Jim: Clamav has not been updated in about 7 years, little optimism that it will be. Duke intends to do a custom virus scanner as Tom described. Suggested that hyrax documentation be updated to point this out.

Tom would like to get a different virus scanner implementation into Hyrax. Jim agreed. Tom would like someone to open a ticket and hopefully find someone to take the work on. Jim will open issue.

Chris Colvard: Put on agenda because discussed in last call and right after last call, engine_cart released that fixed problem. Chris mentioned becuse someone stuck in local environment becuase unaware that needed to up0date engine_cart. Our environment still refers to old version. Where all does this need to be fixed, and how do we fix them all so people don’t hit walls? Template & gem_specs… is that all?

That’s all Tom is aware of.  Chris will take a pass at making the changes.
