Migrating to artdaq v3_08_00

artdaq v3_08_00 no longer uses SharedMemoryReader, and therefore experiment-specific input sources will no longer compile. The replacement functionality is the ArtdaqFragmentNamingServiceInterface. Simple input source implementations (i.e. those that do not map Fragments to specific art branches) can migrate using artdaq-demo:source:artdaq-demo/ArtModules/ArtdaqDemoFragmentNamingService_service.cc as a template.

Once the new FragmentNamingService implementation is created, for example "YourExperimentFragmentNamingService", then you should add art.services.ArtdaqFragmentNamingServiceInterface: { service_provider: YourExperimentFragmentNamingService } to your FHiCL configuration documents.

Example Configurations (BEFORE DAQInterface bookkeeping)
