    33Separation into two sub-packages: Toolchain Tagging and Model Database
    44
    5 == Model Database ==
     5= Model Database =
    66
    77One entry in the model DB contains:

    4646
    47 == Toolchain tagging ==
     47= Toolchain tagging =
     48An interactive system which
     49 * assigns a unique, unchangeable tag for a submitted toolchain, and
     50 * allows retrieval of the toolchain from that tag.

     52A toolchain is an arbitrarily large list of versioned software together with actual copies of their parameter settings files. It should be specific enough to allow fully scripted reconstruction of the whole chain's workflow.
     53
     54necessary features:
     55 * a tag for a shorter toolchain can stand as an abbreviation of one part of a longer chain
     56   * User A uses a LHE input file with tag XYZ, generated earlier by someone else. Without needing to know the actual sequence of tools represented by XYZ, a new tag can be generated for the extended workflow.
     57
     58
     59possible uses:
     60 * unique identification of reproducible workflows
     61 * inclusion in LHE header blocks, can substitute for explicit parameter listings
     62 * inclusion in Model database, to refer uniquely to
     63   * a given model-card/tool combination
     64   * the workflows that have created the validation plots/tables
