It seems we have had some drift between the two, need to resolve this

We have files duplicated in three places: filesystem/Users/nelle/, data-shell and shell-novice-data.zip.

Can we drop data-shell and generate shell-novice-data.zip based on filesystem/Users/nelle/?

Can we also drop shell-novice-data.zip and have it only in the release page?

@tomwright01

+1 for dropping the zip file. Following someone elses suggestion I recently started the lesson by getting participants to clone a repo containing the filesystem. This worked great.

Probably too great a change for today but I'd like to see a version controlled 'filesystem' repo that could be embedded in lessons as a submodule.

We have one more set of duplications, the filesystem examples in the lessons themselves. We'll need to ensure those are synced with the filesystem as well.

@tomwright01 we can't go for an all-git solution for the filesystem, in case of SWC workshops where git isn't taught, they won't necessarily have a way to grab the filesystem

in the zip archive there is an empty data-shell/Desktop/ sub-directory. Not sure why it is there. In any case, some example outputs (in 01-filedir.md) mention it and some don't.

@rgaiacs.

I don't understand. What is filesystem/Users/nelle? Also, what if some instructors want to use the bleeding-edge version of the lesson - wouldn't dropping the .zip file make things difficult?

@shwina Sorry for the long delay to reply your question.

What is filesystem/Users/nelle?

Did you get the answer for this question at #490?

Also, what if some instructors want to use the bleeding-edge version of the lesson - wouldn't dropping the .zip file make things difficult?

Long long time ago, at the time that we used, the now deprecated, https://github.com/swcarpentry/DEPRECATED-bc all instructors need to clone the repo and use the bleeding-edge version. Now we have a release process, https://github.com/swcarpentry/swc-releases, and we should suggest to instructors to use the last release and not the bleeding-edge version. Instructors that want to use the bleeding-edge version probably have a fork of the lesson and can generate the .zip file in 5 minutes or less.

@rgaiacs - got it, thanks! Let's say we drop the .zip file in the bleeding-edge version of the lessons: (where) can we make it explicit that anyone teaching with this version should generate the .zip file themselves?

Instructor guide? When we recreate it?
