Could pygcxxml be added to larsoft please?

sbncode already depends on the pygccxml currently installed in /cvmfs/ but to upgrade to SL7 we need v1_9_1a in order to be compatible with the SL7 python.

  • Scope deleted (Internal)
  • Project changed from cet-is to LArSoft

In order to add pygccxml to the larsoft distribution, we must make a release with python 3 as well as the existing python 2 build. That may take some time. In the meantime, pygccxml v1_9_1a for p2715a has been installed on the larsoft cvmfs. It will not be added to the larsoft distribution until we have v1_9_1b with both p2715a and p372 support.

Although we are willing to consider adding this to a LArSoft-related distribution, use of CastXML (and friends) creates maintenance and sustainability concerns. We would like to discuss this with the SBND software leaders to better understand the situation.

Not sure exactly who needs to be involved. But maybe we can start with Andy Mastbaum.

We will setup a meeting to discuss.

I'd be happy to discuss and can reach out to other SBN software folks as well. When would be a good time to meet?

Chris, sorry for the delay on this. I am actively working on the new stack now, but Kyle is away until the back end of the week. We will try before the end of the week to schedule a discussion with you.
