Currently the SDSS demo contained in lsst_dm_stack_demo has two options: --small and by extension large. It turns out that difference between the two is whether there are five bands run on two visits or three bands on two visits. I.e. six sensors vs. ten sensors. This difference is very minimal in the context of an integration test.
If we remove the demo.sh afterburner and instead run the demo as part of lsst_ci via scons, as is the plan, I would prefer that the default be the full run. If we change the test to use the full run, as opposed to the --small version, the --small flag will no longer be tested anywhere (the non-small version was implicitly being tested by running the demo with stack_os_matrix).
In order to simplify the demo, I would like to remove the --small option completely and have only one way to run the demo.
The work would be minimal. The only places the --small switch are mentioned in the lsst org are in the demo package itself and in the pipelines docs. There are several places the jenkins pipelines offer the option to run the demo using the --small option, but I believe the SQuaRE team could easily update those.
