Round Table

Marco Cl.

  • Fixed ICC compilation in LHCb
    • we have to ask for ICC builds of the AA projects
  • AA builds for VC9 already requested. Gaudi v22r0 (next one) will support VC9 and drop VC7.

Rob: Do we need more build machines since we add icc? Yes, at least one more SLC5 (Joel already requested it)


  • Updated LHCbNightliesConfiguration.
  • Prepared the package GaudiProfiling for inclusion in the next release.
  • Setting up VC9 nightlies.


  • LbScript v5r5 (released) has a preliminay support for VC9, but it cannot be auto-detected.
  • Working on the script to move packages from one project to another in Subversion.
  • IT changed the policy for public/private directories in AFS. Our cmtuser will not be accepted as public and automatically changed. We should change our scripts and make it "public" only within the LHCb group ( z5).

Marco Ca.: About Subversion

  • It has been requested recently that only lhcb-release-managers can tag (the sanity checks in the pre-commit hook are needed anyway).
  • We need to add to svn:ignore the files that CMT generates.
    Marco Cl.: it can be done easily on all the cmt directories (it cannot be done at the repository level). Hubert: it is also possible to do it in the client configuration.


  • Online v44r4 released an currently used in the PIT.
