    12  1. Theory
    13  1. 1 MC verification

    21 = Toolchain tagging =
    22 
    23 A 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.
    24 
    25 An central interactive system which
    26  * assigns a unique, unchangeable tag for a submitted toolchain, and
    27  * allows retrieval of the toolchain from that tag.
    28 or
    29  * decentral user-specific hashing - problem: retrieval of hashed chain
    30 
    31 
    32 necessary features:
    33  * a tag for a shorter toolchain can stand as an abbreviation of one part of a longer chain
    34    * 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.
    35 
    36 possible uses:
    37  * unique identification of reproducible workflows
    38  * inclusion in LHE header blocks, can substitute for explicit parameter listings
    39  * inclusion in Model database, to refer uniquely to
    40    * a given model-card/tool combination
    41    * the workflows that have created the validation plots/tables
    42  * Anywhere that a detailed specification of a set of tools and inputs is required

    46 questions / answers
    47  * All chains starting with mSUGRA
    48  * "which tags contain Herwig-2.4.2 ?"
    49  * Given Spires ID of experimental paper, which chains were used in the paper
