      Description

      I re-downloaded ap_verify_testdata and got the following error:

      Pointer file error: Unable to parse pointer at: "refcats/gaia_example.tar.gz"
      Checking out files: 100% (21/21), done.
      

      The file is treated as an invalid symlink by unix. The file is downloaded correctly, but Git will refuse to make (or even revert) any changes to it.

      This appears to be a bug in how the repository was created in the first place. Fix ap_verify_testdata as described in the linked discussion, and re-download the other datasets to make sure they haven't been corrupted in the same way.
