            LSSTCam Commissioning Mini-Surveys currently Q3 2021

            1. – +1 months Produce sample commissioning alerts with LSSTCam with substantial latency
              ==> +1 month (singular)

            Minor point on terminology — could we avoid referring to the “Alert Production Pipeline”? For consistency, it would be consistent with LDM-151, where what you're describing is the combination of the Single Frame Processing Pipeline and the Alert Generation Pipeline. Similarly, the “Known Solar System Object Association pipeline” is, I think, just a part of the Alert Generation Pipeline in LDM-151ese.

            mgraham points out that the footnote on page 1 regarding alert purity ("less than 5% of the alert stream will consist of false positives") is inaccurate--OSS-REQ-0353 requires that we provide a threshold at which a user can filter the stream to the required purity, but the stream itself should contain all events above 5 sigma subject to capacity limits (LSR-REQ-0101).

            LDM-612.pdf I've attached a version incorporating these changes, as the repo is still private and hence there is no ldm-612.lsst.io yet.
