Scripts for managing ATLAS Test Releases

These scripts help with setting up and using test releases. The setup is slightly different from that documented in the Computing Workbook in that each release has its own cmthome directory, and the requirements file is created from a template (either a default, or one in your main ~/cmthome directory). This allows the setup for each release to be independent without complicated AtlasLogin hacking.

atlnewrel make new test release (before
atladdpkg cmt co the same version as in the release (script from Stephen Gowdy)
atlmake make everything in $TestArea
pkgmake make just one package

Run with no arguments (except atlmake) or with -h (except atladdpkg) for help.


To set up a release, use

% mkdir ~/testarea/15.6.1
% cd ~/testarea/15.6.1
% ~adye/bin/atlnewrel 15.6.1
% source ~/testarea/15.6.1/cmthome/

The generated requirements file includes the release tag by default, so you don't need to specify that whith

For a Production Cache, use, eg.

% ~adye/bin/atlnewrel 15.6.1,AtlasProduction

Once again, -tag=,AtlasProduction is saved in the generated requirements file, so you don't need to remember that on the

% atladdpkg PhysicsAnalysis/AnalysisCommon/UserAnalysis
% atlmake
% cd WorkArea/run
% get_files

atlmake rebuilds everything. If you change (or add) just one package, you can use pkgmake. They can be run from any directory, so you don't need to move out of WorkArea/run to rebuild.
