BIRP returns positive report

The NOAO independent panel review report, linked below, was received, and it is very encouraging.
NOAO instituted a review panel, the Blanco Instrumentation Partnership Review panel, aka the BIRP, to review the DES proposal and advise the NOAO director whether the proposal should be accepted and whether it merits 30% of the Blanco time for the 5 years of the project.

The committee felt that the instrument as described will be an asset to the National Observing system, and that it and the Dark Energy Survey archive will enable an enormous amount of science over a broad spectrum of interests in the NOAO user community.

The report is available here.
