Fix Version/s: None
Component/s: Stack Documentation and UX
The package template, https://github.com/lsst/template should be discussed in the developer guide. See also
DM-7140 for documentation of dependency tracking, specifically.
A related idea, which would make the docs easier to write, is to turn the template repo into a cookiecutter project (this would be technically straightforward).
John Parejko: you’re in luck, there’s also a ticket on the backlog for that:
Well unbacklog them!
Actually, it sounds like 7097 is about a template README.md, while I'm asking for the template product's readme to be helpful when using that product to create a new product.
DM-11513 and RFC-376, this ticket can proceed in the vein of creating a cookiecutter project a stack package in the lsst/templates repo. The templates repo provides a structure for documenting templates too.
I think that other tickets have effectively caught us up on this front. https://github.com/lsst/templates/tree/master/project_templates/stack_package
As a part of this, the readme in the template product is not very helpful and should be updated as well.
