MINOS Batch Group

A production release corresponds not only to a software release but also to a particular cut of most of the database and to a set of scripts for data processing. In principle there will be 1-2 new production releases and an associated full data reprocessing in a given calendar year.


Inspired by the Monte Carlo naming scheme it was decided during the 2006 Oxford Collaboration meeting to assign specialized names for production releases. This naming scheme will follow an alphabetical list of tree names.
