Dear nomad developers,
one thing which doesn’t fit our current Oasis needs too well is the treatment of the uploads. If I understand this process correctly than sudirectories are scanned recursively and the contents are only saved if there is a mainfile detected and successfully parsed.
What we would need is to save the whole upload (our users for example keep sometime excel sheets with some calculations done on top of the DFT results, some figures generated from the data, or random bash scripts used to generate the inputs and so on, and they are usually in some top-level directory where the is no DFT calculaition and is therefore not saved). Also this will be very helpful for us for some DFT or other data which we want to eventually parse but there are no parsers yet, so that it is saved and could be reparsed later after we write the corresponding parsers.
I do understand that this is not optimal for the central NOMAD as this could be easily misused and will use more space, but I believe such feature could make sense for Oasis (maybe as an opt-in configuration switch), with stricter access restrictions.
Is this something which could be achieved somehow with the current NOMAD Oasis version?
