    Description

      In a recent DM Science Pipelines meeting there were some complaints about how it was difficult to know exactly what the submission directory is (usually named after the output run collection with the timestamp and all that), and that if one waited too long after things had completed to check status, doing e.g.

      bps report --id id_number
      

      no longer worked. A workaround might be to create a link named after the job ID number but the target would be the directory. So if the BPS job id were 123456.0 then bps would make a link, perhaps in the top-level submit directory (or pwd if that weren't defined) like so (just an example):

      123456.0 -> u/kherner/DM-nnnnn-something/timestamp

      or whatever the directory where all the files for a given submission go.
