        • CAS-12433 tclean with chunks has discrepant PB, restoringbeam, and spectrum at edges of subimages (includes CAS-12432 but NOT CAS-9852), can be merged after branching
        • CAS-12493 Extend fringefit calibration table to make space for a dispersive term
        • CAS-12485 Add options for weighting in fringe fitter least-squares solver
        • CAS-12545 Fix some of the importvla bugs identified in CASR-416 (not done, but should be fine for PR as per Juergen)
        • CAS-11552 variable nchan w/ combine='spw' in gaincal
        • CAS-12572 add comp_nchan parameter to simobserve
        • CAS-12513 specsmooth boxcar smoothing incorrect

        • CAS-12148 Serious issue with explicit setting of restoringbeam parameter in tclean
        • CAS-9108 Linear basis-specific 'Xf' (multi-scan) improvements
        • CAS-9106 Migrate qufromgain (python) to gaincal
        • CAS-12495 image sideband atmospheric curve in plotms
        • ARD-25 / CAS-12563 AWProject ticket (documentation)
        • CAS-6747 calculate/transfer bandpass solutions in RF and IF space (documentation, tests?)
        • CAS-9621 tclean : Improvements to Multiscale CLEAN and add 'scalebias' option to MTMFS CLEAN (documentation)

        • ARD-23/CAS-XXXX, possibly being deferred?
        • CAS-12576 applycal leaves single dish caltables open when docallib=True ?
        • CAS-11893 Averaging of residuals in plotms ?
        • CAS-12344 Make MPI available at C++ ? - FMP: doesn't need to be merged into 5.6. It is for developers.
        • CAS-12166 cumulative memory use leading to MPI timeouts: single large mosaic case ? - FMP: this was fixed in other tickets. Nothing to merge from this ticket.
