Following the merging of DM-16606, ap_pipe.py will no longer try to create a prompt products database when it’s run. This change makes the AP pipeline better able to run in different environments, including large-scale testing or operations. A local copy of the database can be created by running the make_ppdb.py script, provided as part of the ap_pipe repository.

Per RFC-587, this is an immediate breaking change to the ap_pipe.py user interface, with no deprecation period: users who wish to run ap_pipe.py from the command line must now ensure there’s a prompt products database in advance, either by running make_ppdb.py or by configuring ap_pipe to use an external database.
