I use SNDPTFORD with SAVF, totally automated, AJS job runs every two weeks.
With the SAVF I also get the cover letters for each PTF downloaded.
I review all the cover letters before any PTFs get loaded.

Correct me if I'm wrong, with image catalog, you lose the cover letter capability.

In the end, do it however you wish, but fix central is a different discussion. I've very rarely had any issue with fix central, so I can't relate to the problems there. Then again I always use FTP to get the images so I don't have to deal with the download director foolishness.

And yes, we often use CLP to order, ( via SNDPTFORD) download, and get ready for apply. Almost completely automated.

I disagree. I used image catalogs with Fix Central. When I gave up on Fix Central and switched to SNDPTFORD I couldn't use image catalogs due to an OS bug. IBM patched the bug, but by that point I'd started using SAVF. It's much easier and I have no intention of going back.

I guess I missed the discussion about old SAVFs. I've never had a problem with it.

Jeff:


With a due respect, the image catalog IS the simplest and easiest method.
Particularly with clean up of old stuff that just needs to go away.
(reference thread a short while back about cleaning up SAVF in QGPL).

Don’t let “I’ve done it that way forever” stop doing the best thing.

It’s also faster than save files.
