when starting a top cook the current file gets saved and gets processed with something like this:
our current tools for farm submission work like this:
- the hip gets saved
- the hip file gets copied to a /submit directory with a unique hash added to the file
- now the file is used for processing on the farm, all file out nodes add this file path as a attribute in the geo
now You work on Your file and might change stuff so it is impossible to recreate the simulation that might have been approved. As there can be a lot of dependencies in a file this easily happens.
right now the cooking process start a batch like this:
is there a way to modify this so we can inject the copied file, instead of the original hip?

something like this:
