Speaker: Mark FischlerCLHEP is a broadly based collaboration, including developers at CERN, FNAL, SLAC and elsewhere, to provide core C++ class libraries for the use of the HENP community. Recently, the collaboration aspect of CLHEP has been rejuvenated and expanded.
To provide structure for the expanded collaboration, the developers have agreed to a consensus-based organization centered around an "editors distribution list." An overview of the new structure, including the mechanism for ensuring CLHEP remains responsive to the needs of HENP users and other developers, will be presented.
To guide directions of development, the nature of CLHEP has been clarified: The "core" CLHEP is structured as a set of packages which must have freely available sources and must be independent of external packages. These must work on at least a large fraction of the platforms in general use. The selection of these packages is driven by those needs and timetables of the High Energy and Nuclear Physics community which would not likely be met by code emerging from the general computing community.
Coordination of CLHEP with other packages developed in HENP will be discussed, and recent and planned extensions to CLHEP will be presented.
