CASA Development Infrastructure Links

Status: DEPRECATED - see CASA Software Engineering

This page collects links to pages that describe the CASA software build and test tools, automated builds and tests, the process for packaging CASA for distribution, and the methods for distributing CASA to assorted groups of users. It also includes links to pages describing other procedures carried out by CASA Infrastructure folk that contribute to CASA development and test.

CASA Infrastructure folk are responsible for creating and maintaining these pages, but all CASA developers are welcome to add to and improve these pages. Where possible, links will point to existing pages. Where necessary, new pages will be written by mining the CASA wiki for the most complete and current information, then filling any remaining gaps as needed.

This page does not include links to pages on CASA administration, design, implementation, meetings, optional development tools, planning, project status, scheduling, user's guides, etc.. Links to those topics still belong on CasaIndex.


A list of topics to track down pages for or write pages about. I expect this to take some time to populate.
