    • CAS-8087 PlotMS pointings: creating small testcase data for verification & unit tests
      • selection of a subset of circles from a double-circle scan pattern: circles whose center are best aligned with a specified regular polygon
      • next step is to perform the final selection on the original MS using the time ranges defining the circles
        • that is: keep only data for which the pointing direction interpolated at MAIN timestamps and converted to J2000 belongs to the specified circles
    • Intel Parallel Studio 2018 Update2
        • investigated issue: by default Vtune amplifier fails to attach to CASA
        • solution: $ AMPLXE_RUNTOOL_OPTIONS=--no-altstack amplxe-gui &
