Software Sharing at Fermilab - Experiences from Run II, KITS and Fermitools

Speaker: Ruth Pordes

  Fermilab provides many different software packages for specific Experiments or Projects. We promote a strategy to distribute and reuse software once the investment in its development has been made. We describe experiences with three approaches and our ideas for continuing this effort into the future. In the CDF /D0/ CD Joint Offline Project, software is jointly developed or obtained and then supported by the Computing Division and the Collaborations. We describe one such project as an example - the development and support of the experiments data base management systems. Key elements in the promotion of reuse and sharing of software are providing and maintaining central services which simplify and standardize how software is distributed and managed. We describe our central code repository, mechanisms to support distribution from a central restricted FTP site, our email support system, and the service provided by a searchable catalog of software and documentation. Through the Fermitools Program, we have been providing software to the more general community. We work towards a semblance of open source within the operating DOE guidelines.
