We hold regular "SICB" meetings (once per month or as required) where we
decide whether a new release is required. This meeting will decide on the priorities, and
what will go into which release. The participants of this meeting are representatives of
subdetectors, physics, trigger and computing:
Agnieszka Jacholkowska (Physics & Production)
Paolo Bartalini (Physics & Generators)
Andrei Tsaregorodtsev (principal author of sicb and responsible for most packages)
Ivan Korolko (Calorimeters)
Gloria Corti (Axlib)
Karl Harrison (Muon)
Guy Wilkinson (Rich)
Thomas Ruf (Vertexdetector)
Matthew Needham (Tracking)
Hans Dijkstra (Trigger)
Florence Ranjard (Computing & Program Librarian)
Eric van Herwijnen (Computing & NT production)
Others who have expressed an interest in past meetings (e.g. Patrick Koppenburg, Mike
Koratzinos) are welcome. If a new release is required this group will decide:
the time range for commits, last commit date
test version release date and the type of test data to be produced by the production
Before updating the software, the foreseen changes should be comminucated to:
Eric van Herwijnen
The subdetector contact person or generator group coordinator
If an urgent modification is required, but not yet ready by the deadline, the release
can be postponed by a request to the librarian, copy to the others in the sicb group.
If a change is found rapidly (within one day) after the release, and this change will
affect only the production, and production has not yet started, a re-release can take
place, without change of version number.
Any release will take place at the beginning of the week, monday preferentially,
with a frequency of at most one release per week.
