Release schedule
Target May 14
Geometry updates in geo-devel

John Nugent has been doing some comparisons against Step I data
JN to make comparison plots available to help with tuning and optimization


Schedule revisions
Dobbs acting as Santos on Kalman issues
Tracker-geometry interface - Ryan has been pulling down tracker geometry and using
the interface in his validation tests. What remains to be done?
Ryan to have a face-to-face with Adam and Chris Heidt later in the month

Adam unable to merge with trunk since latest trunk fails to build
-- to raise in issue tracker

Melissa will look into online plots

Low pt track issue - good enough for now. Flag them for downstream reconstruction


DR to chase EMR group for schedule update and promised presentation


TOF+Tracker 'multi' variable in Celeste's branch
DR to merge into trunk for next release
KL and Ckov will need to get into Global PID at some point
Celeste has looked at EMR and can pull it in but is waiting for EMR reconstruction to evolve


Ryan needs to know positions of survey nests releative to detector
TOF - Maurizio Bonesini/Yordan Karadzhov
Ckov - Lucien Cremaldi
KL - Mariyan Bogomilov
Tracker - ?

Ryan unable to get any input on diffuser -- positions and thicknesses
Step V - Jason busy with PRY modeling, so can't work on this until after

Speed improvements -- geometry with bare-bones detectors cuts down loading time to 2 minutes
Bare-bones means -- no magnet, no diffuser, no solenoid cryostats
Will Geant 4.10 help?

Validation - Stefania uses a simplistic geometry (no scattering surfaces) for energy-loss validation,
hunting down unexpected peaks and valleys
Geometry validation criteria and procedure should be finalized

Geometry documentation now added to MAUS documentation -- in geo-devel

Beamline simulation

John Nugent has updated the structure to make it more user-friendly
Also updated deck to use
DR to merge


Schedule revisions
0-25% networking


Sophie Middleton to get spin tracking into MAUS by the end of the week


CR to make computing project spreadsheet available to link with rest of Step IV readiness schedule
