Observation simulation

No direct news. David Sanchez has almost gotten gtorbsim (nee gttakosim) to run using example files provided some time ago by Giuseppe Romeo. David ran up against a bug regarding parameter handling; James suggested the following workaround for the file input approach to running the tool (while he fixes the bug): "the tool should work for you if you run it once with the command: gttakosim Timeline=. EphemName=. saafile=. "

User interface and infrastructure (& utilities)

At the Science Tools meeting last week, Jim described his proposal for Event Class Handling in the Science Tools in general and in FT1 files in particular. In the proposal he introduced the gtirfs tool.

Source Catalog

Met last week. The discussion was about source identification strategies, toward settling on a standard approach for the Catalog sources.
