November 2018 Offline Leads Meeting Notes

The November 2018 LArSoft Offline Leads status update was handled via email and a google document.

LArSoft – Erica Snider

LArSoft met with each experiment’s Spokespeople and Offline Leads to learn detailed plans for the next year, the implied requirements for LArSoft, and how LArSoft could help, as well as what the experiments might be able to contribute to LArSoft code. This input will be used to develop the 2019 LArSoft Work Plan.

Stage 1 of the LArG4 refactoring project will officially close with the acceptance of documentation, currently posted to The offline leads are invited to review and comment on the documentation at any time.

DUNE – Andrew John Norman, Heidi Schellman, Tingjun Yang, Tom Junk

A recent shift away from using /grid/fermiapp for staging of built binaries made DUNE’s build script fail on mac.  CVMFS is unreliable and slow on mac, so we use the /grid/fermiapp mount. We see that larsoft and other experiments use buildFW in their Jenkins scripts and may want to consult with how to do that ourselves.   Keeping the latest release on /grid/fermiapp is the path of least resistance for us.

ICARUS – Daniele Gibin, (Tracy Usher)

ICARUS has launched MCC 1.1 which addressed some deficiencies in the initial 1.0 run but importantly also signifies the official switch to the POMS system. This week (final week of November) is being used to eliminate the last remaining issues and we expect to be generating moderate size (compared to MicroBooNE and ProtoDUNE) data sets in the next month.
