Data Migration in production on Mirage

The long awaited MyTardis "datafile migration" extensions are now deployed to CMM's Mirage production system.  The data is being mirrored as I write this.

What does this mean?  The short answer is that I can now add the rest of CMM's instruments to Mirage without filling our local file servers with a few months of data.  So expect to see the remaining AIBN and Hawken instruments added to Mirage in the next few days and weeks.

For people interested in developing / deploying MyTardis, there is a "pull request" waiting for merging into mytardis:master on Github.  Read the pull request comments for details on what is involved.

Update: The pull request has been merged, so the "migration" code is not in the "master" MyTardis codebase.
