LSST DM Developer Guide¶
This is an internal guide for LSST DM staff during project construction, and for Rubin Observatory Data Production staff in operations. It’s also openly available so that others can understand how we’re building the LSST’s data management subsystem. In some cases, other Rubin groups (for example Telescope & Site Software) have chosen to follow various sections as it applies to them.
This guide includes a mix of normative requirements and helpful, descriptive, pages. When it’s particularly important that you closely follow a standard, we include an annotation box at the top of the page.
Any member of DM can contribute to this guide. It’s published from the https://github.com/lsst-dm/dm_dev_guide GitHub repo. Check out the README to get started.
