CADI hack: attaching notes from other PAGs

From Jeff Berryhill.
Here is a hack that allows one to attach notes to CADI lines which do not belong to the CADI PAG.
If in edit mode you select a PAG from the dropdown menu next to "AN note", you are frustratingly led to a page which lists only the AN's associated to the PAG being edited in CADI. For example, attaching a HIG note to a SMP CADI entry, one is led to


To get notes from elsewhere, in this case from the HIG area, edit the browser http address line so that the portion of the query which specifies the iCMS search points to where you want, e.g.

"awg=THISPAG" --> "awg=THATPAG", and go to that page

Making a logical OR between selection filters

If I have two paths, like this:
mySequence1   = cms.Sequence(filterSequence1 * analyzer)
mySequence2   = cms.Sequence(filterSequence2 * analyzer)
Then if both filterSequence1 and filterSequence2 pass, analyzer will only be executed once in a given event.

And if you want an _exclusive_ OR, the following use of negated filters should do the trick:
mySequence1   = cms.Sequence(filterSequence1 * ~filterSequence2 * analyzer)
mySequence2   = cms.Sequence(filterSequence2 * ~filterSequence1 * analyzer)
