Time to get started on this. If done properly it can be used for production of the current dumps as well, allowing us to remove several levels of annoying abstraction from the existing code.

To do:

  • Draft several usage scenarios for task submission, status check requests and more
  • Set out requirements for task manager/job scheduler/workflow manager
  • Evaluate existing software
  • Choose one!

Guess I'll turn these into subtasks so we can start tossing notes into them.

Aklapper removed ArielGlenn as the assignee of this task.Jun 19 2020, 4:18 PM

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)
