VE-318: Investigate issue with LBW gain and config tool
VE-320: Dual backend balancing issue
VE-322: Cannot validate scripts offline for release candidate
VE-316: Plan for real astronomical commissioning
VE-302: Configure manager to support Matrix and Classic modes
VE-292: Investigate BOF files for possible source of 1 ms spurs
Randy looked through the BOF files and didn't see anything obvious. Randy wants to dig into this more with Ryan.
VE-321: VEGAS CLEO screen power display
Currently, CLEO display the input power levels from the IF rack. The issue is that if the LBW balance fails quietyly, CLEO may indicate that the input is well balanced while the output values are not good.
Ray says that the LBW balancing was failing due to a software bug that has now been fixed. If LBW balancing fails it, config tool should now complain loudly and give the user the option to abort. Ray wonders if CLEO modifications are still needed?
Ray will talk with Ron to get an estimate of what needs to done.
Ryan wonders if we VEGAS DM would be the best place to implement this.
Richard suggests that balance problems should be a CLEO message instead of an Astrid message, and then do away with modifcations to the VEGAS CLEO window.
Ray and Joe will decide the best way to make sure any balancing errors are reported clearly.
VE-323: Prepare for pulsar mode acceptance tests
Waiting on other Manager work
VE-324: Continue work on stage 3 of Matrix
Joe has started thinking about the low bandwidth pulsar modes
Joe needs to understand the use of overlapping data in the raw and coherent dedispersion modes. Needs to know if raw modes need to write out data blocks with overlap.
Ryan needs to discuss more with Joe.
VE-313: Review odd bandpass shapes in some pulsar modes
