Kepler occurrence rate review, day 2

Today the review committee wrote up and presented recommendations to the Kepler team on it's close-out planet occurrence rate inference plans. We recommended that the big issues in occurrence rate—especially near Earth-like planets—are factor-of-two and larger, so the team ought to focus on the big things and not spend time tracking down percent-level effects. After the review I had long talks with Jon Jenkins (Ames) and Tom Barclay (Ames) about Kepler projects and tools.
