Release process for LHCb

This information is only relevant for releases after 5.4.0.

For testers

Create pre-release

  • Log into the gangalb account
  • Update the scripts directory from SVN in case there have been updates: svn update scripts
  • Delete anything inside rm -rf ~/cmtuser to remove old releases taking up space.
  • Execute the command scripts/lhcb-prepare -p rel where rel is the release name in LHCb notation. A Ganga release X.Y.Z translates into vX0YrZ with the Y field always zero padded to two characters. As an example 5.4.0 becomes v504r0. This will create a copy of the release packaged for LHCb. IF the release is already there the command will fail and you have to remove the release from ~/cmtuser/GANGA first.

Test release

  • Setup environment by running SetupProject Ganga rel with rel in the same notation as above.
  • Run lhcb-proxy-info to make sure that you have a valid proxy.
  • Run the testing framework as usual with the command rm -rf ~/gangadir_testing && ganga --test -o'[Configuration]RUNTIME_PATH=GangaTest' -o'[TestingFramework]ReleaseTesting=True' -o'Config=localxml.ini' GangaLHCb/test 2>&1 | tee /afs/
    Note that you should just use ganga as it is in the PATH.
    Note that the Ganga pre-release version in this command must be edited by hand for the current release.
  • Copy the test output files to the prerelease directory (from the CMT Ganga package):
cp  /afs/* /afs/
* Copy the test xml files to the prerelease directory (from the CMT Ganga package):
cp  /afs/* /afs/

For LHCb developers

Update of external package information

  • Check out trunk/external/LHCbSetupProject and edit the file /GANGA/GANGA_v/GangaPolicy/scripts/

Update DIRAC dependency

  • Check out trunk/external/LHCbSetupProject and edit the file GANGA/GANGA_v/cmt/project.cmt.

Make new Project available for releases

  • Make a tag like svn copy $SVNURL/trunk/external/LHCbSetupProject $SVNURL/tags/private/LHCbSetupProject/LHCbSetupProject-vXrYpZ and it will be used for all releases with higher version numbers until a new tag is made.
  • After the Ganga release has been made by the release manager, an LHCb person has to go to the page and request the new release for distribution.
