      Description

      Injecting fake point sources is necessary to characterize AP detection efficiencies (and is e.g. required to satisfy DMS-REQ-0097). We need the capability to inject fake point sources at controllable positions (e.g., relative to known galaxy positions) and fluxes prior to image differencing, and to be able to bookkeep which of the fake sources were detected and with what measured properties. The injected fakes should be both "transients" (i.e., with no flux in the coadd) and "variables" (with differing fluxes in the coadd and calexp).

      This ticket is to sketch a design for implementing this within the AP system.
