LHCb Core Software Meeting

Date and Location

10:30 - 11:30
CERN (2-1-034)


Hubert, Marco Ca., Marco Cl. (minutes), Nicolas



  • LCGCMT 58d essentially ready (the announcement is delayed but the problem observed in PyQt on Windows)
    Should be announced and the problem fixed afterwards.

Round Table

Marco Cl.

  • The AFS problem of few weeks ago caused disruption in the automatic Doxygen generation. Now restored.
    Marco Ca.: this project should be used or abandoned. Hubert will fix the documentation links to point to the new directories.
  • lhcb-lcg-head nightly slot is working again. The problem was due to the way shared files are installed on AFS in the LCG nightlies: only the first one is kept, which was failing. The mechanism we introduced (copy on success) should be used in SPI too.

Marco Ca.

  • After the AFS problem, IT suggested to use backed up volumes also for the releases. To be investigated.
  • Problems with the nightlies
    • Mails are not sent
    • Windows is not working (anymore)
    • We need a VC9 build
    • New spurious warnings from QMTest + Python 2.6
  • Which is the status of the Data Quality flags?
    Work ongoing.
  • New twiki page for instructions on how to prepare a project release: PrepareProjectRelease


  • Starting testing pysvn
  • Rob proposed that the tag collector can be used to tag the packages. It requires that the web server can tag/commit (and that everything is in SVN). The functionality should be available only to members of a dedicated e-group (Marco Cl. will investigate how to use SSO in a web application).


  • Prepared the code for testing with Coverity
    • Problem with SmartDataPtr::operator=(), the Coverity support suggested to hide it to the Coverity tool with an #ifdef.
  • Preparing new LbScripts
    • The removal of the read permission to lhcbscripts required a fix in StripPath and exposed a problem in GridEnv.
