    • Continued work on ms tool refactoring. Reported ChannelAveragingTVI selection+averaging seg fault when iterating, Justo created CAS-9441.
  • Bob Garwood
    • (CAS-9232) importasdm should support lazy option for FLOAT_DATA column (ocorr_mode='ao'). Work will continue probably for 2 weeks in January. Test code needs to be written, these changes are using pieces of the filler that have seldom (if ever) been used to date.
    • Planning for the move of the ASDM and generated code and documentation out of ALMA into a new package that ALMA, CASA, and VLA will pull from as needed.

A derived MSIter currently under test to resolve. Will need to check in a virtualized MSIter.h to casacore. Report pending.
