        sam + metacat talking to the runs db.  

        do we have a method for dumping the data for a run in json format? 

        hardware database - unified the requirements for hardware parts identifier

        test it on the current installations? early 2022.  HW need to be developing schema to use this. Jim Stewart is doing the fundamental component types.
