Responded to validation testing and fixed bugs for CAS-8050 (Replace MSSelector with VIVB2 and MSSelection in ms tool)
Continued work on overplotting atmospheric transmission curve CAS-9053
Many interesting discussions with NRAO colleges, mainly about VI/VB2
CAS-9864: Update documentation
CAS-10013: Integration of StatWt within mstransform
More code archaeology comparing CASA and ALMA.
Updates to ALMA to incorporate CASA changes and are scheduled for the AUG2017 release (ALMA)
As soon as those are in ALMA and validated, CASA will be updated to agree with ALMA.

CAS-10036: "flagdata not flagging data!" (with RFlag and correlation selections). I think the code is working well, see ticket for explanations and test code.
CAS-9089 "automatic generation of antenna position corrections from web service / ALMA TMCDB". Getting closer to figuring out the position details with the help of George, Eric Villard and hopefully more colleagues.
Will be looking into flagging issues: CAS-5808 "rflag's use of timedev and timedevscale parameters", CAS-8461 "Flagdata's scan list in log-reports per chunk", CAS-5727 "flagdata mode="summary" ignores antenna selection".
Fixed zero mask handling (CAS-10263) - has been merged to the 5.0 release branch
Automask segfault (CAS-10210) - has been merged to the 5.0 release branch
Propagated the some fixes done for 5.0 release branch to master
Friday NAOJ Meeting
A fix to channel frequency definition in atmosphere tool ( CAS-10228): merged both to the release branch and master.
Fixes to an issue of atmosphere tool generation ( CAS-10229): support generation of local atmosphere tool by attool() method. Addition of close() and done() methods. tool generation codes are currently duplicated in 3 different places. It would be better refactoring and unifying them.
Discussion of a fix to channel frequency definition in ATM library with Justo ( CAS-9762). The code is fixed by Juan Padro as requested but not in efficient way. But it works anyway, so I will leave it to Justo and TELCAL team.
Validated CAS-10249 (gcwrap CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX issue) ---> Resolved (merged to master)
Created and Worked on CAS-10267(importasap crash) ---> Under Validation
test data looks invalid. It contains duplicate rows (WVR spw, same data, same timestamp, and same metadata except subscan number).
test_sdimaging failed two times in release testing (CASA-R5TS3-16, CASA-R5TS3-TOSIERRA-17)
however, second one seems to be a false alarm. sent an e-mail to Ville.
CAS-8082 PlotMS header. Migrated to git, created branch, merged code (svn/git), pushed code to branch for review
