JN updating KL tuning -- to update validation plots and bring MB into conversation




ADC smearing -- need to talk to DAdey

Geometry ok -- help from RB
Field maps in third party library don't get updated in working dir

Implement Chris's API changes

Issue with reading cosmics data -- ping David Adey

After bug fixes and improvements - up and downstream reconstructed emittances agree with MC to < 0.5%

AD will try to get data structure in and merge with trunk -- hold off release until then


Get calibration tool in shape for June end running


Jan Greis to update work plan - add items as necessary



Build system


Need volunteers for June 29 run
Dedicate an analysis code session at workshop
