This work would not have been possible without the help of several colleagues. In particular, we would like to thank Chien Peng for encouraging us to put it all together in an organised fashion and publish it, Dan McIntosh, Yicheng Guo and Cris da Rocha for beta testing and various people on the GEMS and STAGES teams for their support.
