[Halld-offline] Splitting sim-recon: push your changes by 5 pm today (Mon. July 30) [Re: push deadline postponed; new deadline to be discussed]

The split is done.

The new version set can be found here 
<https://halldweb.jlab.org/dist/version_3.0_jlab.xml>. This will become 
the default version set at JLab at midnight tonight.

Things to note on the version set:

  * There is no sim-recon.
  * There are tagged versions of halld_recon and halld_sim.
  * There are new versions of hdgeant4 and gluex_root_analysis.
      o These were needed since the build procedures for these two had
        to be modified to build against halld_recon.
  * There is another new package: gluex_MCwrapper.

To help building private versions of highly-gluex-specific packages 
there is a new script:


It is a replacement for my_sim-recon_jlab.sh. This new script builds 
private versions of hdds, halld_recon, halld_sim, hdgeant4, and 

There are likely some bugs in the way the transition was done; hopefully 
none of them major. Do not hesitate to point them out. Also if you have 
questions on the new system, consider asking them on 
gluex-software at googlegroups.com. The thread may be useful to all.
