Rewrote Todd's analysisUtils mosaicOverlapFactor routine for the pipeline
Implemented QA score and web log page for the pipeline hif_mstransform task
Updated hif_uvcontfit to new pipeline continuum regions file format (with Dirk M.)
Started testing LSRK -> TOPO frequency conversion in hif_uvcontfit
CAS-8487 RTT (plotms error when avgchannel='1e10') - avgchannel value > INT_MAX adjusted with warning
Investigated CAS-8510 (plotms averaging problem with the model column) - problem in FTMachines code with VIVB2. Assigned to Kumar assigned to Jim.
Continued work on CAS-8374 (port casaqt to Qwt 6). Can now plot with internal legend, no seg fault!
Moving Synth Imager to VI/VB2!

Tested XCLASS 1.1.7 unit tests vs CASA-4.6.19 pre-release, found many problems, sent a test report to the group in Koln
Spent most of the week down grading CARTA but shelved it when it became apparent my initial estimate of 1 week was way too low.
Some work on profile UI and converting from Pavol's profile code to image analysis one via a plugin.
(CAS-8511) Short cirucuit MSMetaData::getNRowMap() when subscan props exist. Resolved. Avoid unnecessary table scan.
(CAS-8497) exportuvfits possibly incorrectly writing antenna coordinates: WIP. PR submitted for new uvfits AN table writing/reading rules.
(CAS-8453) being keepaxes into imsubimage. RTT. Added documentation example as suggested.
(CAS-8130) add warning message to imregrid when regridding smaller channel sizes to much larger channel sizes. RTT. Augmented log message as requested.
(CAS-6733) mstransform on mixed VLA XY/LR data produces an unreadable MS. RTT. Fixed infinite loop bug.
(CAS-8509) increase effeciency of MSMetaData::getScanKeys(). Resolved.
(CAS-8500) imhead will crash on fully masked images. RTT. Fixed.
Continued work on ionosphere phase sign convention.
Investigated calibrater tool use of writeHistory. Current usage is ~useless, but unclear if MS HISTORY contributions should be limited to the python layers, as would be most convenient in MMS context. Check-in of cleanup of calibration code pending, as soon as I sort out the somewhat confusing locking stuff.
CAS-8475: alma-ngc3256 regression: looks like a very small change (a few 0.1% change in the rms) but apparently the net flagging has changed...
Refereeing a paper for MNRAS
volunteered for some of the documentation work (can take more if needed, please assign)
re-started work on CAS-7861 (polynomial ephemeris handling for VLA data)
tidied up some pending tickets
started io testing on Lustre
VLA work (cbe + session prioritization)
Darrell Schiebel * Fixed issue with install of astropy * Completed port to QWT 6.
Got Carta to build (and running) on a Mac, started working on the packaging.
Tried building on RHEL6, but 5.3 Qt but the glibc version in RH6 is too old. Also gstreamer version seems to be causing issues.
Continued investigating ASAP download issues with Vince at Csiro. The problems are less frequent, but still there.
Started documenting what learned about IO system.
automask: Fixed the interface for automask with pbmask for missing parameters. Worked on the extra iteration problem, currently testing some solutions.
Completed test spreadsheet
Spent some time on science
Friday NAOJ Meeting
Discussion about intermittent failures of ASAP checkout at NRAO. No issue seen in NAOJ.
line finding in tsdfit ( CAS-7906): feature development done. Added 5 functional test. Need to look into the behavior to threshold in line finding.
CAS-8417: read exsting filler codes and documents kindly prepared/collected by Takeshi.
CAS-8155: defined initial version of the task plotprofilemap
bug report on plotbandpass ---> CAS-8489
CAS-8362: RHEL7/ libsakura rpm. Fixed. Delivered rpm installing by default in /opt/casa/01 and including a RUNPATH
CAS-7339: tsdcal calmode=otf. Unit tests / requirements clarified. Development ongoing.
