I've written a new script to update private builds of gluex software 
packages, bringing them up-to-date with their respective upstream 
repositories and rebuilding them. This was a request from the last 
Offline Meeting. Find the script at


Documentation can be found here 
and is reproduced below.

and exit -x XML, --xml XML version set xml file name (default:

 1. Update all private packages as identified by version.xml in the
    current working directory. Private packages contain a "home" attribute:

|my_halld_update.py |

 2. Update halld_sim only:

|my_halld_update.py halld_sim |

 3. Update all private packages as identified by

|my_halld_update.py -x /home/user/project/version_special.xml |
