13 February 2013: Important note regarding future data changes on DKRZ server

We would like to inform you about some updates regarding future data changes on the server.

With the date of February 13th we wrote a copy of all so far uploaded data on the server in Hamburg into the sub-directory
//gpfs_750/projects/ISI_MIP/data//upload_area.fixed.

This copy may serve as a reference archive for any results obtained with ISI-MIP output data before this date, e.g. results used in publications submitted by the January 31 deadline. 
The directory structure has read-only permissions to make sure nothing is changed afterwards.

The directory upload_area will remain open for upload of additional data and, if necessary, replacement of erroneous data. We encourage you to keep uploading additional runs or updated data to this directory. Please remember to inform us about new uploads, and especially about any replacement of data, as this will need to be communicated to other users.

For paper authors: To ensure reproducibility of your published results, please remember to make sure that any data that you use and that is not included in upload_area.fixed (e.g. data that is added or updated after Feb 13th) is archived on your side.

We also want to remind you about the statistics we generate for the data pool. You can find three kinds of files in
/gpfs_750/projects/ISI_MIP/data/upload_stats produced automatically on a daily basis.

- uploadedFiles.list.DATE_TIME.txt contains a list of all files under upload_area along with the date and time of their upload or last change, respectively

- uploadedFiles.diff2last.DATE_TIME.txt is a simple diff file comparing the latest uploadedFiles.list.DATE_TIME.txt with uploadedFiles.list.(DATE-1)_TIME.txt

- uploadedFiles.newORupdated.DATE_TIME.txt is a subset of uploadedFiles.diff2last.DATE_TIME.txt only containing new or updated files (no removals)
Here DATE_TIME refers to the creation date of the statistics file.

Any future changes will be easily visible in the last two txt files mentioned above. Make sure you keep up to date in the event of using the data for future analysis.
