The DAQ software test release

Overview

The DAQ software test release is used to allow for minor version increments to the corresponding base release, without recompiling the full base release. (Despite its name, its main purpose is not usually for testing, but it can be.) It generally contains packages that have small modifications relative the the base release, and possibly other packages with dependencies that require them to be in a given test release.

Due to the structure of our DAQ software setup, even a brand new base release will have a corresponding test release, with at a minumum the package SRT_NOVADAQ

Conventions

See docdb 4801 for the naming convention for DAQ software releases.

Test releases live in /home/novadaq, as a sub directory named testRel_<release_name>
