As this member will always return false if the art::ValidHandle can be created, then any check of what failedToGet returns is predetermined. The member does not exist in gallery::ValidHandle so having the check is problematic for gallery implementation of these Service Providers.

I've talked to David about this issue already. We understand it, it is definitely necessary maintenance for the BackTracking ServiceProviders to work in Gallery, and I will address it as soon as I wrap up my MCC11 work on the SNB runs.

Thank you Jason. Please be aware that this fix has missed larsoft v07_02_00 and will be part of the next release.

Thanks for the update Lynn.

I had hoped to catch 7_02_00, but, mcc11 interfered. David has assured me this is not an urgent need (No need to request a special tag). We will wait for v7_03_00.
