  • Calibration and Flagging
    • N/A
  • Imaging
    • ALMA pipeline
      • CAS-12433 in progress (effects at chunk edges).
      • New bug (from stk test) : CAS-12550.
      • PIPE-387 : Cannot reproduce parallel tclean issue ?
    • VLASS pipeline
      • Initial VLASS team tests : crashes have gone away
      • In progress : adding heterogenous array support for pointings.
  • Data Visualization
    • N/A
  • Import / Export
    • Bug found by pipeline : fixed in casacore
  • Infrastructure
    • All casacore updates related to memory leak fixes are now in master (prerelease-41 onwards).
      • But we'd need a further update to get the exportfits fix from CAS-12548.
    • exportfits is one of those tasks that do not have any tests (only seems to be marginally used in a couple of tests from other tasks).
      • Another task that doesn't have any tests but is used by the pipeline: plotbandpass.
  • Simulation
    • N/A
  • CASA 6
    • preliminary all-inclusive tarfile is available
      • does not include plotms, table browser, feather gui, logger (and perhaps other minor GUIs)
    • plotms interface is complete -- but still debugging issues with plotms unittest
    • Update/schedule/Tests ?
  • CASA 5.7 (and 6.1) Planning : Note that we may have to switch to CASA 6 and do testing while developing. Also, if CNGI goes according to plans, CASA 5.7/6.1 will be the last dev cycle before a shift of focus.
    • Developers : Please think about what is aleady on your to-do lists. (UR/RR will come talk with you soon)
    • Juergen : Please assemble the larger feature requests from stakeholders, for 5.7/6.1.
