[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Local plugin disabled and aspace_diagnostic not present

Hi David,

Not sure what’s going on, but a few points to note:

-  The absence of an aspace_diagnostic file is a good sign because it only gets written if something goes wrong during start up.
-  There is no need to run 'initialize-plugin.sh local' unless you are using gems in your local plugin. That message is just noting that there is no plugins/local/Gemfile, so there is nothing to do.
-  Check that you have ‘local’ in AppConfig[:plugins].
-  You mention ‘plugin/local/…’, I guess this is a typo, but make sure the directory is ‘plugins/local/…'
-  From memory, that gear icon only appears if you have a plugin that has a config.yml that specifies a menu item.

I have not been able to identify if this is related to the prior bug in older releases having to do with the gem bundler, but I suspect that a gem (or the bundler?) is being blocked here. Although I have the same content in plugin/local/frontend and plugin/local/public running happily on a test server on matching infrastructure, I’m not having any luck getting the local plugin to initialize on prod. Under /data/tmp there is also no aspace_diagnostic text file to interrogate. In the staff GUI I’m not seeing the Plug-ins list item within the dropdown under the gear icon.
