Attendees: David L., Elliott W., Beni Z., Simon T., Sascha S., Herun Y.

Phone: Blake L.

Biweekly meeting time change

We discussed changing the weekly meeting time to 14:00. This would align us with the Online meetings which recently switched to 14:00 and alternate weeks with us. The change went unopposed and it was decided to go ahead with the time change.

Note that a few days later Matt. S. notified me that the 14:00 time would simply not work for him. but a 15:00 start time on Friday's would. An e-mail notification will be sent out to see if this is acceptable to others.

Finalize collaboration meeting schedule

We briefly discussed the collaboration meeting sent out by Dave the week earlier. There were no changes suggested and all proposed speakers confirmed they could meet the schedule.

JANA framework updates

The majority of the meeting time was spent on a presentation by David L. on some of the more recent developments in the JANA framework. Key among them was the new janaroot plugin that can automatically generate ROOT TTrees based on object information obtained through the toString method of data objects.

A few other new features/ bug fixes were mentioned. A suggestion was made to better handle the situation when a non-existent file is specified on the command line.
