We went over the notes 
Thomas reviewed the major points.

      NERSC Update

David reported that the next project at NERSC, a monitoring run on the 
Spring 2018 data got underway today. We are interested in how many jobs 
we can get running simultaneously. He will be running 10 files per run 
this time. Merging of the results will be done after the files are 
brought back to the lab. This is version 17 in the line of monitoring 

      Enhanced script for private builds: my_halld_build_jlab

Mark described a new version of the script to build private versions of 
Hall D software. The script formerly known as my_sim-recon_jlab.sh is 
now my_halld_build_jlab. There are new user options, among them the 
ability to build only a selected set of packages. See the documentation 
on the build_scripts wiki 
for details and examples.

      Review of recent pull requests

We went over the list 

  * Fix event order dependence #8
    <https://github.com/JeffersonLab/halld_recon/pull/8>. "Fixes the
    issue Lubomir observed in his J/Psi analysis where values depended
    on the order in which individual event files were given on the
    command line." Lubomir Pentchev should test this one.
  * Warn if JANA_CALIB_CONTEXT not set #9
    <https://github.com/JeffersonLab/halld_recon/pull/9>. "This was
    requested by Thomas since you will almost always want to have this
    set when processing MC data."

      Review of recent discussion on the GlueX Software Help List

We went over the list 
<https://groups.google.com/forum/#%21forum/gluex-software>. Mark has 
turned the item titled "Where to find version set files? What are 
directory tags?" into two Offline FAQs
