*Question for Jamie: Any issue passing the –loadWorkspacePlugins option in the Java LoopReplace.jar?
*Getting different folders in the output (recorded simulations folder) when running headless as opposed to GUI; doesn’t log anything from the new compartments created in her disease model; also (less importantly) creates a folder for the population model

*Taras: Posts to Bugzilla re dropdown menu to select population, need to look for EMF setting (bug in XML files?); doc clarified (editing a scenario will affect all scenarios with the same object)
