  • Coverity back in production
    • Marco Cl.: it was a misconfiguration (forgot to declare distcc)

Round Table

Marco Cl.

  • Progress on CMake configuration
    • Bender, Vetra and Alignment can be built (some patches to be applied and configuration still to be committed)
    • Pending: Hlt, Moore, Online, Panoramix, Gauss
    • Waiting for the checkout script to be able to build regularly the head versions
  • Need to modify the QMTest custom classes to produce CDash-compatible reports


  • LbScripts v7r5 released (updated archive-project in place)
  • New version of archive-project now archive the distribution files and reminds that CVMFS needs to be cleaned
  • It looks like there is a problem with the latest release of Gauss (Gloria will check the task on savannah)

Gloria: we need to consider how to add the documentation of DecFiles.

Marco Ca.: we need to install everything on Online (we will use it for production).

Ben: we need for CVMFS the same kind of mechanism used for Online.

Gloria: do we have debug on CVMFS? Ben: no, we are still waiting for the dedicated volume.


  • If we need to change the way software is deployed to the Online, we need a meeting with the sysadmins.

The discussion needs to extend to the deployment on the grid too... install_project, SetupProject etc.


  • Tried to run VTune regularly
    • it needed improvements to run faster
    • the new code will be committed soon


  • Working on script for patching the stack.
  • Updating the documentation.


  • ...(CondDB) Compatiblity Tracking System demo...

Marco Ca: we need a simple way to update the database (tools are available)

Ben: We could use this DB for the informations on the platforms and installations.

Marco Ca: we need to replace the "Data Type" with "Reconstruction Type"... the simulation has a similar problem. We need a discussion early next year.
