Incremental updates from MWGR#3

Merged Laurent Petre requested to merge feature/mwgr-3-incremental-updates into develop


This issue includes the various developments and bugfixes required to run during the MWGR-3 in both miniDAQ and global. Only features that do compile and provided improvements in the configuration process have been kept.

Here is the list of implemented changes:

  1. Update the RPM package to match the latest updates
  2. Bump the RPM package minor version to allow installation via the dropbox mechanism in the .cms network
  3. Wait for the TTC clock alignment procedure to complete
  4. Open the LMDB database only once per RPC connection (see #69 (closed))
  5. Wait for the PLL to lock during recovery
  6. Include basic monitoring (!40 (merged), !50 (merged), !41 (merged)) - will probably be removed from final MR
  7. Update the RPM package to match the latest developments and the versioning scheme
  8. Use tito to build and manage the RPM packages (both manually by the developers and by the CI; see #109 (closed))
  9. Update the AMC13 repository to the "GCC8 version" (fixes the IPbus address table for uHAL 2.7)

Closes #69 (closed) and #109 (closed).

How Has This Been Tested?

Tested during miniDAQ and global runs at p5.
