                                                        add earlier
                                                        runs to this
                                                        overview

2 - checklist

   1 - after applying online flags, is there enough data on each
       source?
   2 - are the amplitude ad phase gains stable (i.e. no jumps you
       couldn't attribute to weather)
   3 - check delays.  Are there fewer than 4 turns across a 128
       MHz subband?  AIPS FRING not required: bandpass inspection
       is sufficient
   4 - bandpass: for spectral line observing and multiple bandpass
       scans: is there any significant change over time?
   5 - polarization quality (if applicable).   Jumps in RL/LR
       amplitude /phase vs time on a calibrator?
   6 - major RFI
   7 - are the frequencies as requested in the OPT?  OPT info will
       be added to the JIRA ticket
   8 - check zeros for OSRO2, AC
   9 - for upcoming high frequency observing: check reference
       pointing


3 - problems/issues encountered

   1 - continue to use flagant until importevla is fixed
   2 - CASA split takes too long when time averaging for large
       data sets.  Jurgen will check with Rob if this warrants
       a CASA JIRA ticket
   3 - importasdm (which appears to work fine in general) fails
       on the demo science data


4 - releasing data to observer: Gustaaf has e-mailed guidelines


5 - upcoming projects:
