Now that the reconstruction launch is underway, we are in a position to 
do the repository split. All branches of sim-recon will be brought 
across to the two new repositories, namely halld_recon and halld_sim.

Please do your pushes to your branches by 5 pm today. After that writes 
to the sim-recon repository will not be allowed.

Also, I put together a wiki page where I have tried to collect the 
discussion around this action. Find it at
