Fix Version/s: None
Sprint:Alert Production S17 - 6, Alert Production F17 - 7, Alert Production F17 - 8
Jointcal currently doesn't manage its output repo directories in the best way. We should probably use something more like os.path.dirname(__file__) + '/.test' as the directory root (currently, .test ends up in the directory it was run from, which could be jointcal/ if run from e.g. scons), and also make sure scons cleans up that directory before a run. We don't want python/pytest to do the cleanup, as we don't want to delete output/plots when a user is running tests as part of development, but having scons do it should be fine.
No, you're not naive; either I forgot to assign it to me, or I shouldn't have added it to the sprint in May. That's long enough now that I have no idea which is which, and it's been dragging along through the sprints because I never saw it on the agile panel.
I've just assigned it to me, and I guess I'll poke at it during some "free time", just to get rid of it.
Is this ticket now obsoleted by
Tim Jenness: no, that was just to fix an unrelated bug. This still should be done.
Marking this invalid: I reworked the jointcal test output directories as part of gen3 jointcal, which took care of some of the problems on this ticket, while making others of them obsolete.
Hey folks, I note we've been carrying this for a few sprints now, but it's not actually got anybody assigned to work on it. Is the plan that somebody will pick it up spontaneously at a "tech debt day"? Sorry that I am naive in the AP group conventions about this.
