Very happy! A thousand thanks!!
And I really appreciate your writing up the instructions on how to add a single package to scipipe_conda_env with minimal impact. They would have saved past me a lot of trouble and will future devs. Note I was also following https://sqr-016.lsst.io/#adding-a-new-conda-package which Joshua Hoblitt pointed me too. With what I know now, they also seem incomplete as instructions for a pipelines dev.
Things I didn't know a month ago:
- The SPLENV_REFs can point to any SHA in scipipe_conda_env (including one on a ticket branch)
- That you have resolve the conda env on a linux or osx system.
- That the FIRST place you should change SPLENV_REF is in lsstsw, and then try to deploy and rebuild.
- How to test: (1) start with rebuilding lsstsw with the new SPLENV_REF. (2) Then try newinstall.sh with the new ref + eups distrib install.
