When to worry about negative weights in MVA training for HEP analysis

A discussion at DS@LHC2015 concerned the treatment of negative weights in MVA training. This is relevant for HEP since the advent of MC generators at NLO in QCD, as [the matching of Matrix-Element to Parton-Shower generators](http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/1126-6708/2002/06/029) assigns negative weig...
