  • Contents
    • R3BRoot Onboarding Talk (DK)
      • Slides:
      • Discussion:
        • TV: Dockerfile available → not publicly
        • TV: Dockerimage not publicly available → where to store in OSSR; there is registry on the ESCAPE Gitlab, not clear now how to further use - but the recipe would be good to store with the software in the OSSR
        • TV: will Data will be public: code yes, also data but probably after some short embargo time
          • Analysis cuts only after papers are published
          • Volume 20-30TB / weeks → accessibility not yet clear
            (may be on request)
        • MAT:
          • GSI follows the open science policy: all data needs to be open and FAIR; implementation under investigation also as part of ESCAPE DAC21
          • Docker or Singularity container need to be discussed (new docker license)
            • GEANT4 large part of container - compressing followed also caching/distributing via CVMFS
        • MD:
          • Dockerversion of R3B produced by KVI
          • Test of simulation data in DAC21 (0.5 TB)
          • Interest to collaborate with GSI
          • Environment available at
        • KG: Common practices visible: development on git; workflow (data/simulation consistently processes as soon as possible in the pipeline); containerisation for processing; distribution via CVMFS;
        • KG: will a DataChallenge be added → macro to analyse test datea
        • HAP:
          • R3B is an international collaboration; GPL v3; copyright by GSI and R3B
            • MAT: FairROOT is lGPL3; FAIR/GSI suggests  BSD, lGPL3 or GPL3 to all experiments
          • External dependencies need to be maintained as well
    • OSSR Onboarding Procedure
      • Minutes:
      • MAT: Who is doing the quality check
        • JS: Quality check list needs to be formalised
        • Issues for ESCAPE followed by JS, DMA by CT
      • MAT: Collaboration between DMA community and OSSR could become part of the ESCAP collaboration agreement
      • KG: TOU from EOSC-Future, should be ready by End 2021 - followed up by OSSR afterwards
