43 7 Lynn Garren
* We have a [[build-framework:|defined procedure]] that uses a number of scriptlets found in the ssibuildshims product.
44 5 Lynn Garren
* Each product has a tiny redmine repository for the build and bootstrap scripts.
45 9 Lynn Garren
** Scripts include autobuild.sh, bootstrap.sh, build_xxx.sh, and usually ups/xxx.table, where xxx is the product name.
46 9 Lynn Garren
** We sometimes need patch files.
47 9 Lynn Garren
** Other scripts are occasionally included, such as bootstrap_datasets.sh for geant4.
48 10 Lynn Garren
** We tag these repositories with the product version.
49 5 Lynn Garren
* To ensure reproducible builds, we only build from tagged releases.  In rare cases, we use a commit hash.
50 1 Lynn Garren
* We require that the source code be captured in a source code tarball for reproducible builds.
51 6 Lynn Garren
* We bootstrap and run local test builds for the supported compiler options.  This is a rapid turnaround development step.
52 14 Lynn Garren
** Whenever possible, we run unit tests as part of the build procedure and require that these tests pass.
53 6 Lynn Garren
* Once everything looks good, the source code tarball is uploaded to SciSoft.
54 12 Lynn Garren
* Also provide help to people attempting to make their own ups products.

63 1 Lynn Garren
* Kyle sends around an email to the SciSoft Team when a release is tagged.
64 1 Lynn Garren
* Update information in build-framework/CMakeLists.txt
65 1 Lynn Garren
** There are multiple branches for different product configurations
66 1 Lynn Garren
* Run cmake to get the new build configuration files.
67 1 Lynn Garren
* Check the new config files.
68 1 Lynn Garren
** Always compare against the previous release.
69 3 Lynn Garren
* If they are OK, use copyToSciSoft to install ONLY the appropriate build configuration files on SciSoft.  There are html files for each release that also need to be installed.

** canvas
71 1 Lynn Garren
** art
72 1 Lynn Garren
** gallery
73 1 Lynn Garren
** critic
74 1 Lynn Garren
* Start a Jenkins build
75 1 Lynn Garren
** https://buildmaster.fnal.gov/buildmaster/view/Art/job/critic-all/
76 1 Lynn Garren
** The build needs two iterations.  First for python 2 (the LABEL field is empty) and then a second pass with LABEL set to py3.
77 2 Lynn Garren
* Sometimes there are problems with the build.
78 2 Lynn Garren
** Investigate and fix.
79 2 Lynn Garren
** A local test build is sometimes helpful, depending on the problem.
80 2 Lynn Garren
* Once the build has completed successfully, download the tarballs locally and then upload them to SciSoft.
81 2 Lynn Garren
** Work in an empty directory
82 2 Lynn Garren
** copyFromJenkins -N -q c2 -q c7 -q e17 -q e19 critic-all
83 2 Lynn Garren
** copyToSciSoft *

85 35 Joe Boyd
h2. Update other products to use the appropriate release of art (SciSoft team or experiments, see bullet notes)
86 12 Lynn Garren
87 53 Joe Boyd
* artdaq_core (-This should go to the artdaq group -- Eric Flumerfelt-, Lynn says we just need a tag, so Scisoft team with tag from Eric)
88 12 Lynn Garren
** Owned by the artdaq group
89 12 Lynn Garren
** This product is designed to build against several different releases of art, as reflected in the generated table file.
90 12 Lynn Garren
** If the head of develop matches the latest tag, then use git flow to tag against the head of develop.  Otherwise make a release branch against the latest tag and edit product deps.
91 12 Lynn Garren
** We only edit ups/product_deps to make a new release.
92 37 Erica Snider
* ifdh_art (SciSoft)
93 12 Lynn Garren
** This is the ifdh service developed by Marc Mengel at the request of the art team.
94 12 Lynn Garren
** ifdh_art can build against several different releases of art.
95 12 Lynn Garren
** ifdh_art is updated when libwda or ifdhc is updated or if it needs to recognize a new release of art.
96 37 Erica Snider
* nutools (Robert Hatcher?)
97 12 Lynn Garren
** This product is owned by NOvA
98 12 Lynn Garren
** However, larsoft uses it extensively and sometimes makes contributions to the code.
99 22 Lynn Garren
** Any changes beyond those required by a new release of art, genie, or geant4 must be approved.
100 12 Lynn Garren
101 36 Joe Boyd
h2. Build mu distributions ( mu2e should take this over)
102 11 Lynn Garren
103 11 Lynn Garren
* The mu distribution is basically an art distribution with a few additional products.
104 12 Lynn Garren
* The distribution is built when requested.
105 11 Lynn Garren
* Found on a branch of build-framework
106 11 Lynn Garren
107 39 Joe Boyd
h2. Build nutools releases and the nu or nulite distributions. (Erica will talk to Laura Fields about Robert Hatcher doing this)
108 1 Lynn Garren
109 1 Lynn Garren
* Both NOvA and LArSoft can drive the need for a new release of nutools.
110 11 Lynn Garren
** NOvA uses the full nu distribution.
111 11 Lynn Garren
** LArSoft now uses the nulite distribution which ignores packages that are NOvA specific.
112 29 Lynn Garren
* nutools has been split into modular components.
113 29 Lynn Garren
** This was a staged deployment.  As of nutools v3_05_00, only the CRY interface remains in nutools.
114 29 Lynn Garren
** The nutools suite now contains nusimdata, nugen, nug4, nuevdb, nurandom, and nutools.
115 29 Lynn Garren
** The build configure scripts are now generated from templates in nutools/bundle.
116 11 Lynn Garren
117 32 Joe Boyd
h2. LArSoft release management (SciSoft team plus experiment activity on patch releases)
118 28 Joe Boyd
119 29 Lynn Garren
* Note that the move to github and pull requests will change this workflow.
120 1 Lynn Garren
* Advise and collect information for each weekly release.
121 22 Lynn Garren
** I am often the first point of contact for code changes.
122 22 Lynn Garren
** Sometimes push back about proposed changes.
123 12 Lynn Garren
* Send notices that the release is about to start.
124 12 Lynn Garren
* Make a test build with larsoft and all the experiment code.
125 12 Lynn Garren
** From long experience, if there is more than one set of feature branches to merge, each set must be tested sequentially.
126 12 Lynn Garren
** While this could be done via CI, it is currently more efficient to test on woof.  Especially since overlapping feature branches must sometimes be tested.
127 12 Lynn Garren
** We do encourage anyone submitting a feature branch to run the CI themselves.
128 12 Lynn Garren
* We work on a temporary release branch.
129 12 Lynn Garren
* Once the tests are complete and successful, update the release versions for those packages which will be changing and then tag.
130 12 Lynn Garren
* The tag is merged with master, but not with develop. 
131 12 Lynn Garren
** Merging with develop before the tagged release is available on cvmfs causes all kinds of problems. 
132 12 Lynn Garren
* Build on Jenkins.  Sometimes we find problems during this step.  We move the tag if necessary when resolving problems.
133 12 Lynn Garren
* Once the build is complete, we finalize the release.
134 12 Lynn Garren
** pull the tarballs from Jenkins and upload them to SciSoft
135 12 Lynn Garren
** install the release on cvmfs
136 12 Lynn Garren
** For macOS building, we install the c2 build on /grid/fermiapp/products/larsoft
137 12 Lynn Garren
** make a cross package tag
138 12 Lynn Garren
** make release notes
139 12 Lynn Garren
** final merge with develop
140 12 Lynn Garren
** send an announcement
141 12 Lynn Garren
* The procedure is described in detail at [[larsoft:How_to_tag_and_build_a_LArSoft_vx_yy_zz_release]]
142 12 Lynn Garren
** Although it is tempting to take shortcuts, the procedure is designed to allow the release manager to recover from various problems that may arise.  Taking shortcuts removes those safeguards.
143 13 Lynn Garren
144 32 Joe Boyd
h2.  support various infrastructure products (SciSoft team)
145 15 Lynn Garren
146 15 Lynn Garren
* cetbuildtools and mrb
147 15 Lynn Garren
** both products were originally developed by me, but have significant contributions from others
148 15 Lynn Garren
** We have provided cetmodules for use within spack and are contemplating a move across the board from cetbuildtools to cetmodules.  Details need to be considered.
149 15 Lynn Garren
* larreltools
150 1 Lynn Garren
** Replaces laradmin
151 16 Lynn Garren
** Contains scripts used to build regular and patch releases of larsoft
152 15 Lynn Garren
* larutils
153 15 Lynn Garren
** The larsoft build scripts used on Jenkins reside in larutils
154 15 Lynn Garren
* artutilscripts
155 15 Lynn Garren
** The build scripts used when building art, nutools, etc. on Jenkins reside in artutilscripts. 
156 18 Lynn Garren
** This is also where buildFW, pullProducts, copyFromJenkins, copyToSciSoft, etc. are found.
157 15 Lynn Garren
* laradmin
158 15 Lynn Garren
** This is now only of archival interest
159 15 Lynn Garren
** It contains the record of various larsoft migrations.
160 15 Lynn Garren
161 21 Lynn Garren
h2. SciSoft
162 21 Lynn Garren
163 21 Lynn Garren
* approve requests for read-write access
164 21 Lynn Garren
** The possibility exists for someone to accidentally remove or overwrite products.
165 21 Lynn Garren
** For this reason, we use nfs4 groups to limit read-write access to necessary directories.
166 21 Lynn Garren
** Some members of the SciSoft team have read-write access to all of SciSoft.
167 21 Lynn Garren
* copy files to pnfs for archiving
168 21 Lynn Garren
** There is a procedure, but it is slow and not automatic.

170 13 Lynn Garren
h2. spack
171 13 Lynn Garren
172 13 Lynn Garren
