Synchronize the defaults for and spelling of tmpdir
This is a low priority request. This report is for art 1_17_07.
For RootOutput the default for tmpDir is . but for TFileService the default is to write it in the same directory that the final output file will appear in. It would be easier to document and support if these two options had the same default. My vote is that the default of RootOutput should be changed to match that of TFileService. Are there any other modules/services that also have a tmpdir policy?
For both RootOutput and TFileService the parameter set parameter that controls the tmp directory is named tmpDir, with a capital D. The command line argument (which overrides both defaults) is spelled --tmpdir, with a lower case D. If it's not too late the spelling should be synchronized.
