1) Exchange meeting with S&C - Jerome/Gene
PWGC questions collected before the meeting:

- production/calibration status
- picoDst - Status of the PicoDst format and time line to get it fully used, (Comment: it should be as much independent on the current Star Software. Otherwise, the idea of PicoDST is getting lost.)
How much the new software is ready for the new detectors EPD, iTPC, CBM TOF.
- chain options to use to produce Pythia+STARSIM, Pythia 
embedded in zero bias events for particular runs
- Can we make Star Software portable and compilable on the other systems (institutional farms and personal machines)?
Some makefiles and examples for the general and wide-used codes like MuDST and upcoming PicoDST, xml launching scripts (examples for submissions to STAR and PHENIX nodes).
- Hypernews

2) PWGC preview
