  • Joseph has mainly been working on Transcoder stuff
  • Joseph fixed issue 471
    • issues with file names with apostrophes (') with mysql escaping.
    • Joseph also accidentally ommited one field (file UUID) forgetting that it will contain the file name. Missed this during testing as well.
  • Joseph is moving normalization paths into the database
  • Peter has been having some design discussions with Open Planets Foundation and Heather Bowden (PhD student at UNC) about Archivematica interaction with external format registry
  • Peter submitted our use cases for a REST Bag API to a collaborative group led by Educopia and Library of Congress (monthly group telecon, mostly US university libraries)
  • Links to Peter's work at
  • Peter, Joseph and Evelyn discussed the 'rename' to start receiveSIP issue this morning, which was originally a work-around
    • Fixing this is a 0.7.1 priority
    • preference#1 moving or copying files to receiveSIP will just work (i.e. Archivematica starts processing)
    • preference#2 use the script Austin created at RAC to avoid the rename
  • see Penn State work on making each AIP its own git repository: for out of the box versioning and auditing. Peter thinks this is a brilliant idea, and really wants to take a closer look at this for Archivematica


  • Evelyn will create wiki page with instructions on restarting Archivematica
  • Evelyn will add details of client installs to our private wiki
