The getpack script was written in order to checkout packages of the Gaudi framework from the corresponding cvs servers and run some cmt configurations on them. The source code can be found in $LHCBSCRIPTS/python/getpack.py, or in the scripts package in the LHCb CVS repository.
At CERN, on both Linux and Windows, the getpack script is invoked by simply typing 'getpack' at the command line prompt.
If you are using the cvs-servers at CERN you will not have to change the script, but you will receive some information that you are not using this script from inside CERN.
If you are using your own cvs-server there are some variables in the getpack-script which have to be adapted. These variables are:
In order to make getpack aware of a new cvs-server you have to add a pair of values to each of the variables mentioned in the list above. The section with the variables to change is clearly pointed out and can be found in the getpack-function of the getpack module (getpack.py)
