      Description

      The term "mini-broker" has been used over several years to describe the LSST service that applies both pre-defined and user-supplied filters to the alert stream. In practice this term is imprecise and creates user confusion.

      We propose to deprecate the term "mini-broker," instead using "LSST Alert Filtering Service," which is the term used in LSE-61.

      This name permits the initialism "LAFS." I would welcome comment on whether its use should be encouraged.

      Passing use of the term "mini-broker" is present in at least LDM-148, LDM-230, LDM-540, LDM-533, LDM-542, and DMTN-081; we would propose to replace these mentions.
