Colin Slater, do you have time to look at this from the perspective of a science pipelines user/developer please?
As we've discussed in the past, this provides a shared stack on lsst-dev, but breaks the link between Buildbot and the stack (ie, you can't ask Buildbot to build and declare branches in this stack). I understand this is a regression for you, but I don't think it's possible to support it until SQuaRE provides the infrastructure. I've opened
DM-5783 to request that.
Also, we really want obs_decam and obs_cfht to be installed in this stack. That's currently blocked on
Other than that, I think I've satisfied all user requests. Please let me know if I've missed anything.
By the way, you are welcome to comment on the shared_stack.py script I wrote to manage the stack (and certainly, pointing out glaring errors in it would be useful), but, since we're not pushing it into the stack or advertising it as an end-user facing tool, I don't think that bringing it to a high level of polish or strict compliance with our usual coding standards is required.
Jason Alt [X], I'm adding you as a reviewer on this primarily for your information. I trust you will find this uncontroversial (and in line with what we've previously discussed), but do shout if there's something you object to.
