Dear Chris, Gene

I am reviewing the geom filee for the CKOV in MAUS. There are many small
problems to fix. A linear layered model best suits simulation and
reco for now. I have not found the material defs in MAUS. I will need
to define some mixtures eg, FOAM_CORE.

I have asked Peter Sonnek to rewrite his G4MICE code (C++). This clean code,
free of ROOT calls, will be helpful in crafting the MAUS code.

Gene should focus on running a MAUS job and reading in a Spring 2010 data file
to display TOF and CKOV values. I believe becoming an expert at Python
scripting will helpful. (Not sure if TOF or CKOV are functional in MAUS? These
codes have been ported over from G4MICE I suspect.)

Maurizio needs to show continued progress in the TOF system with INFN. A 1
year lapse in data taking provides a target for the reviewers to attack.

I have downloaded the MAUS module. Where is the CKOV geometry and material definition files. I can easily fix
these. Or I can start with the G4MICE files?

We should use a simple linear slab approximation to start with.

Gene, when do you think you will have this? Lucien said it would be done by christmas, so I think that can be a provisional date...

I think Christmas is reasonable. I just started working with new unpacking.
