      Review of notes from last time

  * Notes
    were reviewed.


*New HDGeant4 tagged release 
This one has Richard's FDC fixes.

      Comparison post FDC fix(es)

Thomas showed distribution after fixing. See page 17 of the files posted 
here <https://halldweb.jlab.org/gluex_sim/G3G4_Comparisons/FDCFix/>.

  * First attempt at comparison had problems with wrong tagged version
    of HDGeant4 and a mis-set JANA_CALIB_CONTEXT.
  * Protons at 4 GeV/c at 15 degrees polar angle look much, much better.
  * Still a problem with protons at 4 GeV/c at 4 degrees.
      o FOM distributions on page 23 and 24 are very different.
      o Will repeat turning off mult. scattering, energy loss
        fluctuations, position resolution smearing.
          + [added in press] the control file for this comparison can be
            found at Gcontrol_pure.in
      o Time-to-distance relation (TTDR) between Monte Carlo (MC) and MC
        reconstruction not consistent.
      o Simon will look at using same TTDR as used for data in both MC
        and MC reconstruction.


We reviewed the issues on GitHub 

  * Geometric overlaps still on the list.
  * Thomas will mark the FDC issue resolved and/or start a new FDC issue
    as appropriate.

      Next Generation of Signal MC

We will wait for further study of FDC issue and adoption of consistent 
TTDR before starting a new round of Signal MC.
