LHCb Core Software Meeting

Date and Location

10 Sep 2008
10:30 - 12:10
CERN (2-R-030)


Andrei, Eoin, Hubert, Joel, Marco Ca., Marco Cl. (minutes), Stuart


The web site evo.caltech.edu was not accessible, so we couldn't start EVO.



  • Eoin Smith just started as fellow. Will work in the MultiCore project trying to see how it can be exploited within Gaudi.
  • Application Area Meeting in the afternoon. Main topic SVN service.
  • (Marco Ca.) Stefan managed to build the HEAD version of RooFit on top of the version of ROOT that we are using. A few fixes were needed, which will be included in the next version of ROOT.
  • (Joel) Created some new mailing lists for Grid/Production operations focused on specific aspects (e.g. lhcb-bookkeeping).

Software Releases

Gaudi (Marco Cl.)

  • Nothing new since last week.
  • There should be the usual report on Gaudi during the Software Week. There is not much to say (two bug-fix release), except for the planning for the next major changes.
    • present a TO-DO list (problems to be addressed)
    • propose a small workshop to discuss the plan and the timescale.

LHCb, Boole, Brunel (Marco Ca.)

  • Released and deployed yesterday, documentation in progress up to Brunel.
    • mainly bugfixes and protections for real data.
    • new defaults for Brunel: 2008 geometry, real data, MDF input.

Gauss (Joel for Gloria)

  • Latest version of Gauss + DecFile are being released for the production requested by Wouter.

Release and Deployment (Hubert)

  • Stack almost ready. Usual problems with win32 and LaTeX errors in the doxygen documentation.

Marco Ca.: the symbolic links to the doxygen documentation are broken again. They should be changed only when the documentation is ready, not before.
