    • DONE: Dec 2, 2010
    • RESULT: Yes, we have one at CDL at ste-its.cv.nrao.edu. Dan Klopp (dklopp@nrao.edu) can install new software on it, or tell you what software is installed. Dan says: "It has not been updated since it was installed in June. It is in sync with the version used in Chile, RedHat 5.3 and ALMA-7.1.1."


  • Attendees: JEH, EFomalont (phone), SCorder (Video), HLiszt, THunter, ARemijan, NMarcelino, AWootten, CBrogan, Eric Villiard
  • Reports from Chile (Ed or Stuartt): both Ed and Stuartt gave quick reports.
    • JEH needs to follow up with Lyndele on getting "Travel to Chile" FAQ posted to wiki. Todd can then add more recent info
  • Change Request Process with JAO (see attached spreadsheet). JEH described the process. If anyone has an item they think Science Operations should approve internationally (especially as involves s/w capabilities), please bring to JEH.
  • NA CSV support pencil schedule: everyone is flexible. So take months that best fit your schedule. June (proposal deadline) will be busy here in CV with user support, and Stuartt will be here in CV, so would be a good month for Ed to go.
  • OT update from Harvey: OT freeze early Feb2011 - this will be version used for ES
  • Any update on ALMA Single Dish discussion (or save this for Tiger Team meeting?)
  • Integrated Test 3: Open items from yesterdays meeting: what testing of OT-phase2 makes sense? We did not get to this item - will cover next week. Current verbiage:
    • Then, during the Phase2 process, testers will review the SBs generated from their submitted proposals and provide feedback as to whether they appear to properly represent the desired observations
  • Seque to ALMA Tiger Team meeting
