LIGOtools users should see the links near the top of the LIGOtools home page for installation instructions.
LIGOtools software developers can work under the ligotools directory in the lscsoft CVS repository at UWM. See the DASWG How-to page for instructions. Note that only some LIGOtools packages are developed within this repository; several LIGOtools packages come from other sources, and the distribution mechanism is distinct from the development environment.
Bug Reporting, Testing, and Quality Assurance
LIGOtools includes many packages, some of which have their own problem reporting systems. There is a LIGOtools problem reporting database to cover the rest of the packages.
- For the 'lal' and 'lalapps' packages, see the 'Bug Reporting, Testing, and Quality Assurance' sections of the lalsuite project page.
- For the 'dtt' and 'dataviewer' packages, use the 'gds' Gnats database.
- For all other packages (or for LIGOtools-specific issues related to the
above packages), use the LIGOtools Gnats database. Note that the authors/maintainers of software in LIGOtools may not recieve the problem reports directly, but the LIGOtools Librarian will act as a go-between to try to make sure things get addressed.
Before you file a problem report (bug, change request, etc.), please read through the list of current and previous problem reports for
LIGOtools. If your bug does not exist, create a problem report in the 'ligotools' database.
See the LIGOtools home page
- The 'dataflow' package is going to be split into three packages. The new 'metaio' package will contain the metaio library and associated utilities, i.e. the standard distribution. The new 'tconvert' package will contain the time conversion stuff, such as the tconvert command-line utility and Tcl library.
ContributorsSeveral LIGOtools packages include code originally released in some other form, and simply repackaged for LIGOtools. Contributors to those packages are not necessarily listed here (though the primary authors are listed, in many cases).
