      Description

      Using the --clobber-config option in a child butler repository was thought to cause changes in the parent repository having to do with backing up files.

      But actually nothing in the parent is altered in any way.

      The original reporter would suggest the message and command line option for this scenario should be changed to something along the lines of telling the user they can "ignore the config in the input repo" (e.g. --ignore-input-config) as well as omitting the phrase "tasks configurations must be consistent within the same output repo". It would be best here not to even mention "clobbering" of any sort, as none is actually occurring.

      This was originally reported as https://hsc-jira.astro.princeton.edu/jira/browse/HSC-1341
