1.2) Add GFlash parameterisation to DDG4 (issue #802)
1.3) Problems with ROOT-python compatibilities (issue 842)
1.4) DDG4: isotropic gun distribution also forces uniform momentum distribution #862

2)    Closed issues and fixed problems

2.1) [CMS] Certain warnings not needed because they report intended behavior (issue #844)

2.2) Difficulty properly aligning daughter volumes with trap (issue #837)
       ==> Closed, no action
2.3) DD4hep ignores tiny rotation for placed volume #870 --> is now reversed (Markus Frank)
       ==> Closed

3) Round table
