[EP-tech] validate_eprint not being called

I think I have noticed that - but under 3.3.10
I allude to it here: https://github.com/eprints/eprints/issues/132 - but when I implemented a 'faculty maximum embargo' for our Etheses repository, I had to make a local version of the EPrints::Plugin::Screen::EPrint::Deposit plugin - and call the validate method in there:
sub render
        my( $self ) = @_;

        my $problems = $self->{processor}->{eprint}->validate( $self->{processor}->{for_archive}, $self->workflow_id );
        if( scalar @{$problems} > 0 )
                my $dom_problems = $self->{session}->make_element( "ul" );
                foreach my $problem_xhtml ( @{$problems} )
                        my $li = $self->{session}->make_element( "li" );
                        $li->appendChild( $problem_xhtml );
                        $dom_problems->appendChild( $li );
                $self->workflow->link_problem_xhtml( $dom_problems, "EPrint::Edit" );
                $self->{processor}->add_message( "warning", $dom_problems );

Does that sound anything like what you're seeing??

Hi Liam,
Can't say I've noticed it myself on our wonderfully installed and customised eprints instance <ahem>*  What version of eprints and OS etc have you got in your current setup?

*(in-joke note to public - Liam was somewhat involved when we first set up eprints here)

Hi everyone,

Just wondered if anyone else has noticed a problem with the validate_eprint() function not being called? Have tried this in our main Eprints code and against a fairly vanilla copy of EPrints that I keep for testing. Neither function (the default or the archive specific one) seems to be being triggered.
