The meeting started with a brief discussion of the planned talks for the software review, and then the note that was sent to Rolf on these activities. We then moved onto timelines for getting the talks done. Mark also suggested the possibility of moving the description of the online data challenge from his talk into David's talk. We agreed on the following timeline.

  • Next week we post a list of the slides that will be in each talk so we can make sure that the relevant topics are covered.
  • By November 8, we have first drafts of all four talks.

We then the manpower tables that are included in the written material. These came from a spreadsheet that David put together in 2012 and David agreed to survey the collaboration again to try and updated the manpower situation, and then work on extending the original table to include 2015.

We then moved onto the written material. Curtis agreed to continue working on this for about a week, after which he would try to get input from people. However, if people have comments now, Curtis would be more than happy to incorporate them. Also, if people feel important things are missing, now is a good time to at least set up the placeholder for them.
