Abstract: The ``Post-Operational Archive'' (POA) project at the Space Telescope European Coordinating Facility (ST-ECF) has recently released an upgraded version of the HST Faint Object Spectrograph (FOS) calibration pipeline. We present an overview of the capabilities of this STPOA release, showing examples of the resulting scientific gain. We discuss the lessons learned from the in-depth study of an HST Legacy instrument, the FOS, and the problems encountered therein, including erroneous header contents, difficulties in attaining and processing telemetry uplink/downlink information, and software environment restrictions.
