ACTION DR get Lucien's geometry into MAUS


Notes from CR,VB from the EMR paper discussion, the EMR group aims to have their
code pushed by the end of June. Schedule a review when code is ready to be looked at.


Calibration interface may move to, or need input from, David Adey

ACTION: Combine PR, Kalman integration test items into one in spreadsheet
ACTION: DR to look at integration tests, see if we need more
ACTION: AD circulate schedule to tracker group and get an update on Kalman



CP working on pulling KL and Ckov into PID, requires modifying the datastructure



There is a request to have G4BL decks in the CDB
JN will handle the interface code, JN to see what's in the DB and decide if it needs a new table

Build system

Some third party url's are going bad, and for fear of unmaintained servers, want to get MICE-owned third parties
into a common place


Would like an SL6 box for testing, there are errors showing up on 64-bit SL6 that are masked on SL5.
