Plot scripts:
Matt: plot scripts and H1H2 check out okay, except in H1H2 there is a two hour difference in the end times relative to the paper definition, but this shouldn't be a problem. Can sign off on this

Qpipeline checks:
Brennan: Still addressing questions Jonah sent me

DQ flags:
Siong asks for clarification on DQ flags
Brennan: cat2 flags and cat3 are treated separately so we have post-cat2 and post-cat3 lists. cat2 flags are the same as for low frequency analysis and so are just dealt with as a single list from Laura's v3 dq page. Since trigger production is done post-cat1, no additional segment duration requirements are applied for category 2

Sensitivity estimates:
Michele received some needed info from Brennan, but more work still needs to be done.

paper has been updated to deal with Norna and Francesco's e-mails. Figures need to be updated to deal with incorrect error bars

Telecon time:
need to move time because Siong will be teaching at this time. Discussion of schedules, timezones and daylight savings time ensues,
10:00 Eastern Tuesday may work - will need to check with Jonah
