Indico agenda

Items from the Birmingham meeting

  • new output handling mechanism
  • postprocessors, checkers, notifier
  • creation of directories in the workspace on demand
  • move plugins that are no longer maintained to a legacy area
  • Make bootstrap process lighter (I don't know the status of this)
  • RPM installations (Mike said this is ready, should give more details like twiki, etc.)
  • Metadata for jobs and tasks (via comment attribute)

Review of activities

Other experiments


  • Reviewed and updated with the release of Ganga 6
  • other ideas?


  • still takes long to run all tests although GangaAtlas and GangaPanda run asynchroniously
  • shema testing added , new pages for it and for the slowest tests
  • Core: 290/25, Atlas: 9/7, LHCb: 90/14, Dirac: 19/6, Panda: 5/4, Robot: 34/0
  • works but hard to maintain and extend, in longer term requires a reimplementation (Kuba from old plannings)
