        HDF5 discussion

        Speakers: Heidi Schellman (Oregon state) , Thomas Junk (Fermilab)

        hdf5 equivalent of config_dumper

        we need to have some kind of metadata in the hdf5 files. 

        (normal tuples also don't have art metadata, so need it for them as well)

        working on a header-only reader- has a specialized exception ERS package that may introduce more dependence than we want. 

        Working on channel map. 

        Compression out of the daq - do it on SSD?  Cost estimate?  LDRD

        Andrew McNab has gotten rucio client to work within jobs. 

        need python3 and then install pip -> rucio clients. Bit complicated. 

        will we put the job environment in cvmfs? containers? 

        how does this work on the grid? Do Robert and Brandon have a script that does this? 

        in the end we need a ups/spack product for rucio client
