End user analysis code - no reuse potential, but how should they adopt best practice.

Add some paragraphs on scales and finesse of solutions.

 

Examples of reuable products - xrootd, frontier; COOL and CORAL are anti-patterns (!); 

 

Is there data preservation group (working). Address issue of code maintainability.

 

Software deployment should also cover laptop deployment. (Containers?)

 

Homebrew/conda/spack? Is spack standard enough? (not used much outside supercomputers). Do we need a different tool? Maybe too much detail. Why have we not identified a common solution yet? CMake more in requirements.

 

CI - hosted vs. managed

 

Documentation - swings. More diversity. No need to host your own server any more.

 

Training - youtube channels, etc. Needs professional inputs. CERN IT project? University tuition.

 

Licences - Giulio

Validation - Graeme

Code preservation - Michel?

Deprecation - Graeme

Software distribution - Patricia

 

Move it to LaTeX? Not yet! Annecy discussion.

 

Next meeting w/b 16th, morning slot.
