There is a recording of his meeting <https://bluejeans.com/s/7g3gz/> on 
the BlueJeans site. Use your JLab credentials to access it.


 1. new versions sets: version_4.17.0.xml and three recon launch sets
    Mainly update releases.
 2. https://mailman.jlab.org/pipermail/halld-offline/2020-March/003961.html
    Possible fix to stalled projects. Thomas has relaunched some
    previously stalled projects. Most of them have moved to completion
    except for three. These require a pre-fix version set.
 3. current best-practice for CCDB access from farm jobs
    Besides the procedure described in his email, Mark reported on yet
    another method used with success by Karthik. He had a private CCDB
    SQLite file that he wanted to use for farm jobs. The technique which
    worked was to store the SQLite file on volatile or cache and copy it
    to the local farm node for each job. Another future option is a
    compact SQLite database without full run number coverage that Mark
    has been working on.

      Review of Minutes from the Last Software Meeting

We went over the minutes from March 17 

        CCDB 2.0

Mark has succeeded with an automated build of CCDB 2.0 in Build Scripts, 
including all of the GlueX packages. He needs to get an example database 
from Dmitry Romanov to test the build.

        Corrupt EVIO Files

Richard generated two pull requests to address this problem. See Pull 
Request #338 <https://github.com/JeffersonLab/halld_recon/pull/338> and 
Pull Request #339 
<https://github.com/JeffersonLab/halld_recon/pull/339>. Mark will make 
sure that there is a patch release with both of these changes and test 
the changes. David will do a QA review.
