LHCb Core Software Meeting

Date and Location

10:30 - 12:00
CERN (2-R-030)


Gloria, Hubert, Illya, Karol, Marco Ca., Marco Cl., Markus, Rob



  • LCGCMT 58 ready and installed (waiting for final confirmation on the persistency framework)
  • AA Meeting today: What is Coverity and its use in ROOT

Round Table

Marco Cl.

  • Gaudi v21r7 pre-tagged
    Marco Ca.: problem on windows that cannot be tested in the nightlies until the release of Gaudi => go ahead with the release
  • Gaudi v21r7 compiles on icc11, but POOL is still not available. All the warnings and remarks will be fixed or disabled (if pointless) for the next release.
  • Completed task #13270
  • Few packages migrated to SVN
    • Marco Ca.: we need scripts/tools to simplify the tagging and the comparison between tags for SVN/CVS
    • Hubert: we should suggest a graphical tool for SVN interaction (local and remote), probably checking with svn.support


Marco Ca.: DAQEvent has been splitted in DAQEvent and DAQUtils, so next version of Online can drop the dependency on LHCb (adding a couple of duplicates)


  • Problem with the nightlies on Windows because of the wrong version of LbScripts
  • We are ready to start a Doxygen slot

Marco Ca.: How do we proceed?
Marco Cl.: the Doxygen slot will (at least at the beginning) build only the documentation project by project. From some discussions with Hubert, a plan for a more manageable procedure for the documentation is to generate more or less incrementally the documentation for the complete software stack, independently of the release procedure.


  • New dev version of LbScripts (v5r0) installed
    • platform detection module
    • various improvements to install_project.py
  • Time to move LbScripts to SVN


  • Recently added the task #13390: Provide and update "latest-useable-tag"

The use case was discussed and more information is on the task page

Marco Ca.: there has been some e-mail discussion about the procedure for HLT tags. It should be finalized (by Marco Cl.).


  • Preparing the new release for SQLDDDB (v5r18)
