      Description

      When neither --output or --rerun is specified as an argument to a CmdLineTask, any output from that task appears to be written back to the input repository. Note the use of the term "appears": from a preliminary inspection of the code and documentation, it's not clear if this behaviour can be overridden e.g. by environment variables.

      The HSC stack behaves differently, using $INPUT/rerun/$USER as a default output location. A brief discussion suggests that this is the preferred behaviour.

      Please update the LSST stack to match the HSC behaviour.
