    1 = Welcome to Trac 0.10.4 =
     1= Lund MCnet school tutorials =
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     3On this page we can put notes and thoughts about the Lund MCnet school tutorials. So far the idea is:
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.
     5== First day ==
    11 As all Wiki pages, this page is editable, this means that you can
    12 modify the contents of this page simply by using your
    13 web-browser. Simply click on the "Edit this page" link at the bottom
    14 of the page. WikiFormatting will give you a detailed description of
    15 available Wiki formatting commands.
     7 * Run the generator standalone (the generator authors probably want this).
     8 * Use a W+jets analysis that is already available in Rivet to provide an introduction into Rivet.
     9 * Depending on the generator and the author's preference we can run the W+jets on the fly or read in Les Houches ME files.
    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.
     11So basically we could copy large parts of the YETI school for this day. Note that the lecture about jet algorithms is scheduled after the first tutorial, so we can't do any jet algorithm comparisons.
    22 You can use [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] to configure
    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.
     13== Second day ==
     15A more involved LHC analysis. The school's focus is on heavy flavour, so we'll take semileptonic ttbar.
    27 TracGuide is a good place to start.
     17 * Students use a Rivet plugin analysis. We need to prepare one which has all the necessary tools, so that they don't start from scratch.
     18 * They extend their analysis, try measure different properties of ttbar, compare generators.
     19 * If they have time, they can run their analysis also over the W+jets samples to check if they can separate signal from background.
    29 Enjoy! [[BR]]
    30 ''The Trac Team''
    32 == Starting Points ==
    34  * TracGuide --  Built-in Documentation
    35  * [ The Trac project] -- Trac Open Source Project
    36  * [ Trac FAQ] -- Frequently Asked Questions
    37  * TracSupport --  Trac Support
    39 For a complete list of local wiki pages, see TitleIndex.
     21I've already hacked together a very crude ttbar analysis as Rivet plugin. [ Here are some details and plots.]
