0000035: Review naming scheme for reconstructed calorimeter objects
The DPhoton class name is misleading in that it could be matched to a track and so not be a photon at all. The naming scheme should be reviewed for all levels of both the BCAL and FCAL reconstruction to make the names more reflective of the level of reconstruction the object represents.

This has been reviewed and a plan is currently being implemented to change the reconstructed calorimeter object names. Specifically, the name "photon" will be reserved for classes representing showers not associated with charged tracks and so are believed to be photons. The term "cluster" or "shower" will be used in earlier stages of reconstruction before the charge track matching filter has been applied.
