Development

  • Calibration and Flagging
    • N/A
  • Imaging
    • For ALMA : CAS-12395 : Progress via Kumar (already tested by CB). Also, pipeline will use smaller image sizes for makePSF.
    • For VLASS : ARD-21 : Ready-ish to do verification tests. Real-data tests from April (similar to upcoming stakeholder tests) were repeated and results are being looked at. (Multi-term PSF numerical changes that were being evaluated last week, have been abandoned for 5.6, and we will just characterize the current algorithm).
