Hi OPAL'ers,

I have a student starting this summer and would like her to learn OPAL-T (and
eventually contribute to its development later: possibly wakefields and CSR)
to simulate our 75 MeV RF photoinjector beamline {RF photocathode (Cs2Te) gun
followed by some accelerating cavities with the usual elements, quads,
dipoles, solenoids, RF deflecting cavity; superfish for RF cavites; poisson
for solenoids); I am a PARMELA/windows user.}

-What is the best way to get started?
-Does anyone have an input file they could share?
-Is there a community of rf photoinjector OPAL-T users?
