## Description

 # The following will work on an NCSA lsst* computer: examples/exampleCmdLineTask.py /lsst8/krughoff/diffim_data/sparse_diffim_output_v7_2 --id visit=6866601

There are a few problems with that:

• External contributors don't have access to lsst*;
• Even though that data exists now, it's unclear how long it will remain there, or what steps are being taken to preserve it;
• The mention of this data is fairly well buried – it does appear in the documentation, but it's certainly not the first thing a new user will stumble upon.

At least the first two points could be addressed by referring to a publicly available data repository. For example, the following works once afwdata has been set up:

 examples/exampleCmdLineTask.py \${AFWDATA_DIR}/ImSim --id visit=85408556

Although this has the downside of only providing a single image.
