The LSST Stack is a prototype of the system that is intended to process, archive, and serve data from LSST at the start of survey operations (nearly a decade hence, as this is written). Thus, the maturity of the code base is uneven. The maturity of the components is noted below, with the following meanings:
|Good||Code has been exercised in science productions, and can produce technically viable results when configured properly. Enhancements and refactoring are likely.|
|Fair||Code has been exercised, though significant shortcomings are known; substantial enhancement, refactoring or replacement is expected.|
|Primitive||Code has been implemented as a proof-of-concept, or prototype, for a capability that has yet to be fully developed. Replacement is expected.|
The organization of the LSST Stack, as well as the dependencies on third-party software, is under constant review. Refactorings are to be expected from tagged-release to release.
