As per RFC-308, we will remove the trailing repo from butler roots at NCSA.
The implementation of this ticket may be delayed at NCSA's pleasure.
This ticket is for the HSC repo /datasets/hsc/repo
Update /datasets documentation to reflect RFC-308
S17B full HSC reprocessing with the SSP PDR1 data
Remove /repo from paths to datasets
Hsin-Fang Chiang is there a ticket you want to use to block this ticket?
Repos of other non-HSC cameras do not need to wait for DM-10404 though.
Robert Lupton, would you mind if I split this ticket into four?
There are currently four butler repos on /datasets
comCam/repo ctio0m9/repo decam/repo hsc/repo
and each of them can do the change independently. comCam and ctio0m9 are yours currently. I can take care of decam and hsc. How does that sound?
This is fine with me.
Thanks Robert. I made this ticket about the HSC repo only, and created 3 new tickets for the other repos.
It's a bit more work because these points are setup to be read-only. The solution that Kian-Tat Lim came up with was to create the usable butler roots as e.g. /project/shared/comCam and it is these directories that all users should be using.
So maybe we should replace this ticket with, "create the links needed to make /project/shared/CAMERA work for all cameras".
Clearly this is not blocking anyone (or in the intervening 2+ years they stopped caring). Closing this with won't fix and presumably it will either be fixed in Gen3 or someone will care at that point and it will be fixed with a new ticket.
