I've updated all the PRs based on your comments and our conversation, and added 4 new PRs (linked above) for the changes to the ci datasets and obs_lsst config. Please take another look.
HSC is failing in ap_verify right now, due to one of the chips failing astrometry. I haven't been able to figure out why: the image has reasonable sources detected on it. I think sorting that out will be part of the subsequent "validate new task" ticket.
I merged the analysis_ap and verify tickets, as they were independent of the other changes, and it'll make it easier for me to use them in testing.
I'll add the new pipelines to Jenkins CI and Chronagraph on DM-40397.
