@registerrier registerrier commented May 27, 2019

The PR removes PHACountsSpectrumList, which is there to perform I/O on OGIP type II files.
Support for OGIP type II spectra is not provided yet in the SpectrumDataset framework for now. We need to see if this is needed or not.
In the meantime we remove this feature.

Note that the export to Type II files was assuming identical arf and rmf for all spectra, which is a strong limitation.

For reference: this was added in #783

IMO it would be nice to have a way to write and read a list of spectrum extractions to a single FITS file. This could create 1000 HDUs and be 100 MB - that's fine, its still nice to have have a single-file solution. But also making ZIP files for a serialisation to a folder is a single-file solution.

Overall I think removing this is good, and then to only add back stuff with tests (in this case this functionality was untested) and if there's a clear need (which might or might not be there for this OGIP II format, once we have added nice support for OGIP I format).
