Hi Stefano,

1.) At first, please see your own meeting minutes

http://panda-wiki.gsi.de/cgi-bin/view/Computing/Minutes06May2013

"New pandaroot release APR13. The new pandaroot release has been created, based on sep12 external packages. It contains stable code for the analysis, and it is strongly suggested to use it."

We understand that now (with your email today) it seems you change the official recommendation (-> use trunk instead of release!), but please keep in mind that Simon must deliver his thesis in 4 weeks from you.

2.) A release is a release. Bug fixing should be supported (to some level). It is only 3 1/2 months that the release is out. If support is stopped after such a short time, we can never finish any reasonable results.

3.) It is not only Simon. We are preparing many results for the CHARM'13 (Y(4260), h_c', 3F4 state radiative decays, to be shown for the first time). It is completely out of question that 3 weeks before the conference we start re-writing everything for the trunk.

4.) Actually, Simon tried to switch to the trunk.

The discussion is here

https://forum.gsi.de/index.php?t=msg&th=3915&start=0&rid=206 7&S=257ebb8477b8bb15c64c915092466140

More problems. Again, that problem is the trunk.

The proposed solution from Klaus (see the final posting) is to change the pointer "by hand" event-by-event
"Up to now I was not able to identify the bug. Finally I explicitly compared that pointer with something like
RhoCandidate *truth = piplus[ipiplus]->GetMcTruth();
if (truth != (RhoCandidate*)0x8011) ..."

We think that this is not a reasonable option.

5.) trunk is trunk. There is no new rho release so far (at least we think there is not). Sure, development takes time and Ralf is on it, but even if somehow we manage to switch to the trunk and actually (-> wishful thinking!!) to have any working chain, it means that stuff is changing on a daily basis and maybe tomorrow the macros would not run anymore.

So, in order to keep deadlines (Simon's thesis and CHARM'13), we decide not to switch to the trunk right now.

greetings - Simon, Martin, Sören
