## Description

HSC currently has a definition file for defects consisting of

 #CCD x0 y0 width height 

(this is then converted to a binary file for efficient application to the data).

We need to define a similar file format for the use of all cameras. The format can be different (yaml?), but it also needs to add some extra fields; enums that define the type of the defect (e.g. trap, serial trap, hot pixel, ...) and the action to be taken, and some parameters (e.g.trap lifetimes). We will also have to write code to make use of this information.

This format needs to be defined in conjunction with the camera team.

Generic part in obs_base (owned by UW), camera specific code owned by camera owner (for hsc it'd be Princeton)
