Overview of MINOS offline software installation

MINOS offline software is installed, built and run in a framework provided by SoftRelTools (SRT). This framework allows one to install multiple versions of the code for multiple platforms all in the same disk area.

It is organizational units are releases and packages.

There are two main classes of releases.
  1. A base release contains all the packages considered part of the offline software at some point in time.
  2. A test release is based on a base release and contains some subset of its packages. These packages can be modified from and take president over their corresponding packages in the base release.
A base release can be of two slightly different types.
  1. The development release's packages are all at their most current versions.
  2. A frozen release's packages are all as they were at some fixed time in the past.
