Brennan Hughley, Jonah Kanner, Matt Pitkin, Jackie Villadsen

Matt: Let's start with the open box issue

Brennan:  Let's look at H1H2 website

B:  I'm in the process of checking over Jackie's scrpits
Opening the box is straightforward.  There's not a lot
of things that can go wrong.  I wanted to go through
this question of how much needs to be done before opening.

M:  I think it is ok to open box.

J:  Me too.  What do we have to review generally for 
H1H2 process

B:  My goal is to keep it light.  Jackie has done a good 
job documenting.  

B:  Ok, we'll open the box this weekend.  The only 
comment I got on the Burst call was to try time slides
that match bounce mode.  So, I think we have accidentally
done that.

B:  That's all on H1H2 for now.

B:  Let's move on to paper draft.  I haven't recieved
any coments since Peter's.  It has been read by 
about 6 people by now.  I made a few changes based
on Peter's suggestions.

  ** Figures are B&W
  ** Took out paragraph on imperfection on time-lag method
  ** Also cut out mention of limits at rate of 1 per day
  ** Simply refer to limiting event rate at high SNR

There should be some discussion of paper at f2f.  

Move to Review status table

Matt:  Added links to box scripts and my checks.
At the moment, this is still ongoing - some box 
scripts still need checked.  I need to produce plots
myself - I installed root on my laptop to do this.

B:  plot scripts updated - i'll need to pass you those

M:  Figures 5,6 and 8 have not been finalized yet.  
Otherwise, box seems fine.  

B:  I can produce scripts for 5 and 8 - though
the plots my change to systemtatic uncertainty

M:  Ok, great.  

J:  Michele has started the sens. est.

B:  We should talk with Shourov to check on 
potential Q-pipeline issues.

J:  We should ask about DQ flags durring F2F meeting.

M:  I think that's everything - we'll end a little early today.  
Siong should be back next week.
