CBM Progress Report 2014
Instructions for chapter conveners
The sources for the CBM Progress Report will be collected in the subversion repository https://subversion.gsi.de/cbm/PR2014
. All contributions received until the submission deadline (15 February 2015) are already in the repository. Further incoming contributions will be redirected to the convenors; it is up to them whether to accept such late submissions or not. The complete document can be compiled by typing 'make' in the top directory (PR2014).
Here is the initial state of the document after the submission deadline (17 February 2015): cbm_pr2014_Draft_150217.pdf
The convenors are asked to review the contributions in their chapter with respect to content, scientific soundness, wording / formulations, and layout. Plese look after the figures' being in readable size. Should changes be required, the respective author shall be contacted. Each convenor can request and add further contributions to his chapter. Those should be added directly to the repository (see below).
The review process shall be finished by 8 March 2015.
Instructions for the work with the repository
The conveners are kindly asked to commit changes or new reports to the repository. Should you have no experience with subversion or are for other reasons not willing to commit to the repository server, please send the reports ( as tarball files ) to Christian Sturn (email@example.com
) or Volker Friese (firstname.lastname@example.org
Below some instruction for working with the repository:
- Check out: svn co https://subversion.gsi.de/cbm/PR2014
- Authentification to subversion is with your GSI web account.
- The sources are placed / to be placed in the subdirectories source/[chapter], where chapter is one of mvd, sts, rich, much, trd, tof, psd, daq, computing, physics, theory.
- For each new contribution, create a subdirectory [contribution_name]. Choose a convenient name for the contribution; we reommend [chapter]_[first author] (maybe followed by a number if there are several contributions with the same first author). Prepending the chapter name is not indispensable, but may serve to avoid confusion when one author contributes to several chapters.
- Copy the sources of the contribution into the respective directory (.tex file plus required figures). The tex file must be renamed to match the directory name ([contribution_name].tex).
- Please do not commit files other than the sources, e.g. those produced by Latex like .aux, .log or the pdf of the contribution. Although that does not harm, it creates unneccesary load on the system and prolonges the checkout and update times.
- If you wish, you can compile the entire report from the top directory (PR2014) by just typing make. The file cbm_pr2014.pdf will be created in the same directory.
- The one-page pdf of a single contribution can be found in PR2014/build/[chapter]/[contribution]/[contribution].pdf
- The build system is not perfect. In some cases, a new build is not triggered although there have been changes to the sources. You can always trigger a re-build by "touch source/cbm_pr2014.tex" from the top directory.
- In case of problems after having applied changes to the repository (in particular renaming or moving contributions), do a 'make clean' or even 'make cleanall' from the top directory.
- Commit the contribution(s) by typing svn add * and then svn commit -m "[commit message“ from your directory source/[chapter]. You should have the proper permission to do so. If not, please contact email@example.com
- Contributions will appear in your chapter in alphabetical order of their contribution names (subdirectory name). Should you want a different sequence, you can edit the Makefile in your chapter and define the variable "reports" there in the order you wish the contributions to appear.
