Experiments will build patch releases themselves with help from the LArSoft release manager.
6 2 Lynn Garren
There will be a very limited set of people with privileges to do this.  
7 7 Lynn Garren
We ask that the experiment release managers to whom these privileges have been granted do not grant privileges to anyone else.  Instead request permissions from LArSoft.
8 6 Lynn Garren
Permissions will be removed when someone ceases to have this responsibility.

* Scripts used to build the patch release will be found in the larreltools product.  
13 2 Lynn Garren
* larreltools is not part of the standard distribution, but will be available from SciSoft and in cvmfs.

h3(count). Make branches for the release
18 2 Lynn Garren
19 2 Lynn Garren
* This step is done once for any patch release step and will be done by the LArSoft release manager.
20 2 Lynn Garren
* If a release is named vaa_bb_cc, branches will be created for the larsoft/larsoftobj suite with the name vaa_bb_cc_br.

22 2 Lynn Garren
(setup the latest larreltools)
23 2 Lynn Garren
setup mrb
24 2 Lynn Garren
export MRB_PROJECT=larsoft

dogit branch (check that you are on the head of the tag)
31 2 Lynn Garren
dogit "co -b vaa_bb_cc_br"
32 2 Lynn Garren
dogit "push -u origin vaa_bb_cc_br"

** Note that some older patch releases may have used a slightly different branch naming scheme.

h3(count). Housecleaning
37 2 Lynn Garren
38 2 Lynn Garren
* cd $MRB_SOURCE/larsoft/releaseDB
39 2 Lynn Garren
* Make sure that larutils, larbatch, and mrb are removed from the cfg scripts.
40 2 Lynn Garren
** streamline this by creating a small "larsoft extras" distribution that can be optionally included.
41 2 Lynn Garren
* commit and push the change
42 2 Lynn Garren

h2(count). Making a patch release
44 2 Lynn Garren
45 2 Lynn Garren
* These notes presume that you do not have an existing directory
46 2 Lynn Garren
47 4 Lynn Garren
h3(count). MicroBooNE setup
48 2 Lynn Garren
49 2 Lynn Garren
* setup the latest release of larreltools
50 2 Lynn Garren
* startUboonePatchRel  <working_dir> <tag> <larsoft branch> [<uboone branch>]
51 2 Lynn Garren
** This script will create a directory named "tag" under the "working_dir".
52 2 Lynn Garren
** This script will clone the larsoft/larsoftobj on the named branch.
53 2 Lynn Garren
** The same branch name will be used when cloning the uboone_suite unless a second branch name is supplied.
54 2 Lynn Garren
** The directory structure will include a single source code directory with subdirectories for e17 and c2 debug and prof builds.
55 2 Lynn Garren
** Use "dogit branch" to double check that you are on the expected branch.
56 2 Lynn Garren
57 4 Lynn Garren
h3(count). Setup for other experiments
58 2 Lynn Garren
59 2 Lynn Garren
* Appropriate scripts will be supplied when necessary.

h3(count). Local development
62 2 Lynn Garren
63 2 Lynn Garren
* Before integrating any feature branches, make sure that the release builds as is and that the unit tests work.
64 2 Lynn Garren
** Make sure to build and test both e17 and c2.   Usually the prof build is sufficient for testing.  prof is preferred over debug, which sometimes masks problems.

source local*/setup
67 2 Lynn Garren
cd $MRB_BUILDDIR
68 2 Lynn Garren
mrb t -jN
69 2 Lynn Garren
</pre>
70 2 Lynn Garren
* Next make changes and integrate feature branches
71 2 Lynn Garren
** Because feature branches may conflict or not have been thoroughly tested, we recommend merging one feature branch set at a time.  Build and test after each set.
72 2 Lynn Garren
73 4 Lynn Garren
h3(count). Update the package versions
74 2 Lynn Garren
75 2 Lynn Garren
* Do this once all changes have been made.
76 2 Lynn Garren
* ONLY update the version if there is a change.
77 2 Lynn Garren
* cd to each directory separately
78 2 Lynn Garren
* git diff LARSOFT_SUITE_vaa_bb_cc[_dd]
79 2 Lynn Garren
** You are comparing against the previous patch release in this set.
80 2 Lynn Garren
** If this is the first patch release in the set, compare against the original release.
81 2 Lynn Garren
** If there are no changes, move this package out of the way.
82 2 Lynn Garren
<pre>
83 2 Lynn Garren
cd $MRB_SOURCE
84 2 Lynn Garren
mkdir ../notag
85 2 Lynn Garren
mv xxx ../notag
86 2 Lynn Garren
mrb uc
87 2 Lynn Garren
</pre>
88 2 Lynn Garren
** Move all experiment code out of the way.  (_mv ub* ../notag/_ for MicroBooNE)
89 2 Lynn Garren
** Use "mrb uv" to update the version by one in the patch field.
90 2 Lynn Garren
*** There should be a script for this...
91 2 Lynn Garren
* You must update larsoftobj/bundle/CMakeLists.txt and larsoft/releaseDB/CMakeLists.txt by hand with the new versions.
92 2 Lynn Garren
** commit and push these changes
93 2 Lynn Garren
* DO NOT commit the changes to ups/product_deps
94 2 Lynn Garren
95 2 Lynn Garren
96 4 Lynn Garren
h3(count).  Tagging the release
97 2 Lynn Garren
98 2 Lynn Garren
* Do a final build and test with just the packages you expect to tag.  
99 2 Lynn Garren
** This step will also create the necessary build cfg files.
100 2 Lynn Garren
** If there are changes in both larsoft and larsoftobj, double check for consistency.
101 2 Lynn Garren
<pre>
102 2 Lynn Garren
cd $MRB_BUILDDIR/larsoft
103 2 Lynn Garren
diff releaseDB ../larsoftobj/bundle | grep diff
104 2 Lynn Garren
diff releaseDB ../larsoftobj/bundle | grep Only
105 2 Lynn Garren
</pre>
106 2 Lynn Garren
** If all is good, copy the cfg scripts to SciSoft
107 2 Lynn Garren
<pre>
108 2 Lynn Garren
cd $MRB_BUILDDIR/larsoft/releaseDB
109 2 Lynn Garren
copyToSciSoft lar*
110 2 Lynn Garren
</pre>
111 2 Lynn Garren
* Now tag
112 2 Lynn Garren
** tagPatchRel <existing branch> <new master tag>
113 2 Lynn Garren
** tagPatchRel will commit ups/product_deps with an appropriate message, make the tag, and push both tag and branch to origin.
114 2 Lynn Garren
** Use "dogit status" to doublecheck.
115 2 Lynn Garren
** *IMPORTANT*:  patch release tags are never merged with the master branch
116 2 Lynn Garren
117 4 Lynn Garren
h3(count).  Official build
118 2 Lynn Garren
119 2 Lynn Garren
* build on Jenkins
120 2 Lynn Garren
* Use special patch release build jobs.
121 2 Lynn Garren
** This avoids possible conflict with normal release builds.
122 1 Lynn Garren
* use copyFromJenkins to download the tarballs and release manifests from Jenkins
123 1 Lynn Garren
* use copyToSciSoft to upload the tarballs and release manifests to SciSoft
124 1 Lynn Garren
** This step requires extra privileges.
125 5 Lynn Garren
126 5 Lynn Garren
h3(count).  Release Notes and Cross Package Tag
127 5 Lynn Garren
128 2 Lynn Garren
* Once the build is complete for ALL variants (SLF and macOS), make the cross package tag.
129 5 Lynn Garren
** We wait because sometimes a problem is not found until building and we need to move a tag.
130 2 Lynn Garren
** This step requires redmine manager persmission for larsoft
131 2 Lynn Garren
<pre>
132 2 Lynn Garren
cp-lar-tag <larsoft tag> <larsoftobj tag>
133 2 Lynn Garren
</pre>
134 2 Lynn Garren
*** It would be nice to fix cp-lar-tag so it deduces the larsoftobj tag
135 2 Lynn Garren
* Make the release notes
136 2 Lynn Garren
** make-release-notes <working_directory> <tag> <previous tag>
137 2 Lynn Garren
*** This script will create a subdirectory named tag under the working_directory
138 2 Lynn Garren
** cd into the newly created tag directory
139 2 Lynn Garren
** cat ReleaseNotes-vaa_bb_cc_dd
140 2 Lynn Garren
*** The first line of this output is the entry in the [[LArSoft_release_list|release list]]
141 2 Lynn Garren
*** The remainder of the output is used to create the release note itself.
142 1 Lynn Garren
**** copy and edit the top part if appropriate.
143 1 Lynn Garren
**** Do not edit anything under the "Change List" section.
144 1 Lynn Garren
**** It is important to use cat so that there are no unexpected line breaks.

h3(count). Upload to cvmfs
147 5 Lynn Garren
148 5 Lynn Garren
* This step requires login privileges.
149 5 Lynn Garren
* ssh cvmfslarsoft@oasiscfs.fnal.gov
150 5 Lynn Garren
* The README provides an overview of the necessary steps.
151 5 Lynn Garren
** start a transaction
152 5 Lynn Garren
** install using installBundle.sh
153 5 Lynn Garren
** publish
154 5 Lynn Garren
* installBundle.sh larsoft vaa_bb_cc_zz sNN-eY
155 5 Lynn Garren
** Note that if you call installBundle.sh with sNN-e17, it will install both e17 and c2 variants.
156 5 Lynn Garren
** The script will attempt to install the release for all supported platforms and clean up after itself.
157 5 Lynn Garren
** If some expected distributions are not available, then manifests will be left in the .working subdirectory. Check and remove them if necessary.
