Organization and management of ATLAS offline software releases

Abstract : ATLAS is one of the largest collaborations ever undertaken in the physical sciences. This paper explains how the software infrastructure is organized to manage collaborative code development by around 300 developers with varying degrees of expertise, situated in 30 different countries. ATLAS offline software currently consists of about 2 million source lines of code contained in 6800 C++ classes, organized in almost 1000 packages. We will describe how releases of the offline ATLAS software are built, validated and subsequently deployed to remote sites. Several software management tools have been used, the majority of which are not ATLAS specific; we will show how they have been integrated.
