A service managing and coordinating different time offsets has been delivered by MicroBooNE.

The service needs to be integrated and tested for LBNE, and then merged to develop branch.

Uboonecode has merged their changes with v02_01_00_branch, but lbne requests help merging the necessary changes into lbnecode.

I have
- updated the configuration of all the experiments in services.fcl except LBNE to configure TimeService with the settings from timeservice.fcl
- added a TimeService configuration for LBNE in timeservice_lbne.fcl
- checked all the FCL files in lbnecode repository to make sure they configure TimeService

I have added prodsingle_lbnefd.fcl and prodsingle_lbne35t.fcl to the test suite and run mrb test on the result.
LBNE tests ran successfully (one of MicroBooNE tests fail, but that's a different issue).

After some e-mail exchange, the current settings of TimeService for LBNE are the same for 35 tons and full detector geometries:
- TDC starts digitizing at Geant4 time 0 (that is, at the first simulated particle -- maybe just beam particle)
- TDC readout starts immediately when TDC starts the digitization
- trigger happens by default at Geant4 time 0 too

Now waiting for LBNE to:
- confirm the settings I use, or demand others (for example, I suspect these are not very cosmic-ray friendly)
- test the changes and give the all clear to integration in develop branch

Configuration files of the event display for all the experiments have been updated to include TimeService.
No other known issues are pending.
