    v4 v5  
    1616   * this combination should also already have a tool chain ID
    1717 * list of validations that have been performed.
    18    * This format is described on page ????
     18   * This format is described below
    1919 * Thumbnails of plots of MC comparisons, including the tool chain ID that was used to make them
    2020 * pointer to the main arXiv paper
     
    3333 * a system for citation handling?

     36possible uses:
     37||QUESTION||ANSWER||
     38||specific BSM model||which papers refer to it, which validations have been done||
     39||specific particle (maybe PDG code)||which models have it||

    3644Proposal for 4-Star ratings:
     
    4654
    4755= Toolchain tagging =
    48 An interactive system which
     56
     57A toolchain is an arbitrarily large list of versioned software together with actual copies of their parameter settings files. It should be specific enough to allow fully scripted reconstruction of the whole chain's workflow.
     58
     59An central interactive system which
    4960 * assigns a unique, unchangeable tag for a submitted toolchain, and
    5061 * allows retrieval of the toolchain from that tag.
     62or
     63 * decentral user-specific hashing - problem: retrieval of hashed chain
    5164
    52 A toolchain is an arbitrarily large list of versioned software together with actual copies of their parameter settings files. It should be specific enough to allow fully scripted reconstruction of the whole chain's workflow.
    5365
    5466necessary features:
    5567 * a tag for a shorter toolchain can stand as an abbreviation of one part of a longer chain
    5668   * User A uses a LHE input file with tag XYZ, generated earlier by someone else. Without needing to know the actual sequence of tools represented by XYZ, a new tag can be generated for the extended workflow.

    5970possible uses:
     
    6374   * a given model-card/tool combination
    6475   * the workflows that have created the validation plots/tables
     76 * Anywhere that a detailed specification of a set of tools and inputs is required

     80questions / answers
     81 * All chains starting with mSUGRA
     82 * "which tags contain Herwig-2.4.2 ?"
     83 * Given Spires ID of experimental paper, which chains were used in the paper
