  • Plone Update: New theme transferred to casadocs-devel:
    • Streamlined navigation, condensed organization
    • Moving away from auto-import of parameters/methods (probably still doing it right now though?)


  • Pipeline development for 5.4.0 - conitnued
    • Dirk Muders will be on vacation for 3 weeks starting next Tuesday. ALMA imaging tickets are so far in OK shape, but may need reassignment to Kana.

Developer Reports

Monday Meeting
  • Sanjay Bhatnagar
  • Sandra Castro
    • Have been sidetracked from my 5.4 development by a couple of tickets from the VLASS pipeline on flagdata.
      • CAS-11482: warn users that quakcincrement=True is not supported in flagdata's list mode. Ready to validate
    • CAS-11432: add CASA version and build info to MS history: ready to validate
      • While implementing this, I noticed that tasks get ~ 10s slower when running the CASA ID hash. This can be a performance hit for several tests such as test_flagdata suite which contains hundreds of tests. The pipeline may also get affected by this increase in run time per task. Darrell and I thought that this could be caused by the new telemetry, but the solution is still TBD.
