Hi Dan,

exactly my point. The build thing is independent of the DC.
Yes of course we would install "stable" software on the Grid. And doing regular builds would rather test the sanity of the Grid sites than the software which should have been tested beforehand locally.
Installing new software every half a year should be fine. But as I know from ALICE this is driven by demand, since if you plan a certain production you often need a certain thing in your framework which will only be finished tomorrow, but certainly not before. And then you need to deploy the latest version of PandaRoot in the latest possible moment or even later.
But even if we do not deploy new versions of software it still makes sense, for my feeling, to test once in a while, if the existing packages are still compiling on the sites, as site test, not as software test.

Cheers,

Kilian
