Local Dynamic metadata provider

A couple of questions.
1) Are you placing the actual file in the same directory that was mentioned in metataproviders.xml? So I am guessing there is no problem in having both the actual files and their symbolic links in the same directory.
2) When/how is this script called?

FWIW, a while ago I posted this example for the Shib SP's "Dynamic"
metadata provider: https://gitlab.com/snippets/1720109
Something like this should work fine for the IDP as well.
