Round Table


  • Presented the current status of the Eclipse plugins
    • live demo of the basic usage
      • create a local project based on a released one (SetupProject --build-env)
      • populate a project with existing packages (getpack)
      • create a new package
    • feedback required (savannah project, to be linked from the plugin "about" page)
  • Marco Cl. will update the shared installation of Eclipse with the new plugins, so that everybody can profit from it
    Note: the latest version requires some fixes in LbScripts.
  • The plugins can be installed on local Eclipse installations following the instructions in EclipsePluginsTutorial.
  • Preparing a copy of the basic Gaudi tutorials using Eclipse instead of Emacs

Marco Cl.

  • Submitted abstract for ACAT about CMake configuration.
  • Starting to work on the Gaudi patches (several new ones coming from Atlas)


  • Witek's summer student is working on the interfaces to the generators
    • discussion ongoing to properly support the multiple versions of HepMC


  • Switch LbScripts v6r3 to "production" today (required to use the package CPConfig in production).
  • Rob requested to use tcmalloc in production, but it requires the new version (1.7) not yet available in our releases.
    • It is possible to deploy it using LHCbGrid, but we need to know how urgent it is or when it has to be available.


  • Problems with CASTOR last week because of a misconfiguration of the firewall on the lxbuild machines.
    • Preparing a twiki page to describe the requirements for the configuration of the build machines.
