      Description

      Add a cron job that will download the validation data to a known location. This location will be /project/shared/data/[testdata|validation_data] for now. I am using the lsstsw user to do the downloading so that we can make sure people are not inadvertently changing the branch etc.

      Datasets will be:
      validation_data_hsc
      validation_data_decam
      validation_data_cfht
      testdata_jointcal
      testdata_cfht
      testdata_subaru
      testdata_decam
      ap_verify_testdata
      ap_pipe_testdata
      ci_hsc
      afwdata

          John Swinbank I added words to the dev guide and updated the README in /project/shared/data. Will you have a look at the PR and let me know if that was what you were thinking.

          I'm installing the crontab entries now.

          I'm not sure what to do about the error when a normal user cd's to one of those directories. I think, if anything, it gets across that those directories are not intended to be mutable, maybe?

          I confirm that the crontab I installed ran last night and executed as expected.

          Thanks Simon! I picked some nits on your Dev Guide update, but nothing of any great significance. Thank you very much for setting this up!
