News / Meetings / Visitors



  • CASA / Pipeline 5.3 development waiting on CASA development and testing : callibrary, tclean, plotms, ...
  • Support for ALMA mixed arrays (7m and 12m) in progress
  • Port to new parameter handling module nearing completion
  • Progress on pipeline infrastructure to support separate ALMA calibration and imaging recipes


  • 5.3
    • Working on Test Plan for CASA HPC in 5.3+
    • Working on CAS-10697: error handling for uvcontsub when running on Multi-MS and using combine=spw.


Build, Release

  • Looking for one or two brave souls to test "featureless" branch workflow
  • Currently testing automatic recreation of expired Bamboo branches. Wait for an hour to see if an expired branch gets recreated. If not, let Ville know.
  • Branch packaging+test is now a single Bamboo task and Test Suite 2 will be retired.
  • cbt-el6-2 & cbt-el6-1 will be rebuilt this week.

Verification Testing

Validation Testing

  • Current validation tally
    • 131 Under Validation, 96 Ready to Validate.
  • Current Testing Efforts for 5.3 deliverables
    • imaging issues/autoboxing refinements
    • statwt2 (CAS-10530, waiting on me to close)
    • systematic tests of mstransform (thanks Enrique for the list of pieces that are actually ready for testing)
    • plone/CASAdocs
    • further parallelization testing (non-ALMA pipeline specific, this has started)
    • polarization calibration
    • testing snapshot -- please see for the up-to-date list of tickets and testing status



Developer Reports

Monday Meeting
  • Sanjay Bhatnagar
  • Sandra Castro
  • Lindsey Davis
    • Resolved pipeline parameters handling issues in the restoredata tasks, e.g. multi-vis tasks calling single-vis tasks
    • Pipeline discussions with Kana
    • Reviews outstanding pipeline ICT tickets with Morgain, Remy, and Kana
  • Bjorn Emonts
  • Pam Ford
    • CAS-11058 cal table plotting: BPOLY plotting done, GSPLINE in progress
  • Enrique Garcia
  • Bob Garwood
    • CAS-11083 importasdm fails to read VLA data. This has been tracked down to an incorrectly written SDM due to a known (and long since fixed) bug. The filler in 5.3 now cares about this particular part of the SDM and so it correctly fails to fill. Waiting on eVLA to decide how they want to proceed.
    • CAS-10644 Filler needs to detect duplicate (sets of) rows and retain only one copy. This is done for POINTING and I just finished the work for duplicate DATA rows. Working through some new related unit tests and verifying as best I can that nothing is broken. I expect to push this back to the branch and for verification and testing sometime in the next day or two.
    • Looked through some of Michel's tickets (Juergen assigned the ones in CASR to me, there are still several in CASA that should eventually be assigned to me)
  • Kumar Golap
  • David Mehringer
  • George Moellenbrock
  • Dirk Petry
  • Martin Pokorny
  • Federico M Pouzols
  • Urvashi Rao
  • Darrell Schiebel
  • Ville Suoranta
  • Takahiro Tsutsumi
Friday NAOJ Meeting
  • Kanako Sugimoto
  • Wataru Kawasaki
  • Takeshi Nakazato
  • Renaud Miel
    • CAS-8087 Plotms pointings: TVI implementation ongoing
