Abstract:

This report covers the period 26 September 2012 to 1 May 2013 of contract W911 Nf-12-1-0604 between Simula Innovation AS and ERDC-IRO. The work done in this period completes the milestones described in the original project proposal Milestones 1 and 2, and we describe the work on these below. Since then, the contract has been amended with additional tasks for a third milestone. This work has not yet started. During the period, the project PI, Dag Sverre Seljebotn, worked 300 hours on the project. Including all overhead and expenses the calculated cost to Simula Innovation AS for this part of the project is 42,000. Milestones 1 and 2 describes a software component for accelerating development of scientific Python distributions, dubbed the Build Artifact Cache in the proposal. This software component has since been given the name Hashdist, which we will use in the following. Hashdist is in continuous development and licensed under a permissive open source license 3-clause BSD.
