Verifying the failures in mpi parallel tests. They are caused by the renaming of task sdimprocess to sdfixscan. This renaming should also be added to the file in mpi4casa/task_wrappers.py. I will fix it in a new branch of the same ticket and create a pull request.

Removed remaining pipeline dependencies on analysisUtils
Added support for ASDM QA2 flags

continued work on plotting atmospheric curve (CAS-9053)
hiring committee for CARTA UI position
interesting talks on Scrum and async vi2
CAS-10139: new refant 'strict' mode almost ready for validation; introduced some significant infrastructural changes to support generating test-worthy cal tables via SimpleSimVi2Parameters (i.e., don't need a MS, yet also sets a precedent for VI2-driven formation of caltable meta-data).
Some JIRA followup on VI2 discussions re continuing VI2 improvements. New epic: CAS-10292. Still a few things to add in from some residual pre-5.1 tickets (or parts thereof).
applied casacore commit of Dirk's to casa-5.0.0 branch
presented design for async vi2
continued implementation of async vi2
merged casacore pull request from David for CAS-10150

CAS-9853 "mstransform (regridms=True) implementation of correct gridding" - issues with zero weights fixed, and related...
CAS-10283 "wt extrapolation explodes to >1e34 values" also seems fixed in the CAS-9853 branch.
CAS-5727 "Flagdata's scan list in log-reports per chunk" - fixed, ready for testing.
CAS-8461 "flagdata mode="summary" ignores antenna selection" - I think the current code does the right thing.
CAS-9089 "automatic generation of antenna position corrections from web service / ALMA TMCDB" - adding and double-checking correct formulation of position differences.
Thanks Socorro colleagues for all the interesting discussions last couple of weeks!
CARTA+Interactive Imager : Got a local CASA build going for James Dassoulas, started work (with Darrell) to resurrect an old prototype of asynchronous interaction.
Other work : Met with Jeff for information transfer regarding sci/tech development plans for 5.1 and beyond, continued to mentor two summer students daily, attended/examined a remote PhD student viva, did some (ongoing) work for a hiring committee.
