The Packages & Releases project (formerly "LCG SPI") provides consistent releases of external software and the LCG applications area projects to the LHC experiments and the theory community with:
A preview of the LCG releases is made available to the experiments via nightly builds.
In addition, it supports the development activities of the CERN based experiments with technical assistance and further services. The goals and requirements are jointly set during the bi-weekly Librarians and Integrators Meeting.
In the past, the project as well provided development support in form of the issue tracker Savannah.
