NOvA Request for Stable GENIE Release
I understand that the stable version of GENIE v03.04 (or whatever minor release it ends up being) isn't available yet, and is still at least a week or two away. However, I wanted to create a ticket in preparation for when it becomes available.
NOvA will want to start using it produce Monte Carlo samples at the earliest opportunity. Therefore once you get the stable version built we would ask that you make a new nutools version for NOvA which relies on it.
Thanks in advance!

Sorry for not being clear.
We are currently using nutools v2_28_01, which depends on art v2_12_01 and ROOT v6_12_06a. I don't think that we have any reason to change either of these dependencies.
We therefore would like to request a new nutools built against art v2_12_01 and ROOT v6_12_06a, which relies on GENIE v3_00_04.
I will wait for Robert to confirm whether we also want the new version of dk2nu.

We're still waiting to hear back from Robert about dk2nu.
To help with NOvA's internal planning, how long do you think that it would take to cut a new nutools release?
For example, if we get you a decision by the end of today what are the chances that there will be a new nutools release by the end of the week?

- % Done changed from 0 to 100
- Status changed from Feedback to Resolved
The nu v2_28_02 distribution with nutools v2_28_02, dk2nugenie v01_07_02g, genie v3_00_04, genie_phyopt v3_00_04, and genie_xsec v3_00_04 is now available. The e15 build is complete. The c2 build is in progress and will be available later tonight.
It turned out to be easier and faster to use dk2nugenie v01_07_02g, which was already available.
Please note that the genie_xsec qualifiers are now G1802a00000-k250-e100. Other options are available at http://scisoft.fnal.gov/scisoft/packages/genie_xsec/v3_00_04/

Thanks for getting the main body of the release put together so quickly and sorry for not saying so sooner!
It seems that our resident PPFX expert is on vacation, and so is unable to cut a new PPFX tag. I don't suppose that you would be able to cut a new tag depending on d2nugenie v01_07_02g for us would you?

LArSoft release emails say "Ubuntu builds are available upon request." Does the same go for the NOvA nu bundle? Fine if it doesn't include TensorFlow -- I'd like this build in order to try to link novasoft against a natively installed TensorFlow. Obviously this is lower priority than getting the SL6 build in place.
