Build, Release

Verification Testing

Validation Testing


  • Warnings Summary --- Two projects out of the green; all others are clean.
  • Working on personal branch to get CASA to compile with casacore in its own namespace. Long, slow process. Impact is small once the cutover is done.




  • preparations for CASA 4.7 / pipeline C4R2 release
  • issues
    • integration with recent CASA tclean primary beam issues
    • accurate determination of aggregate bandwidth
    • evaluating effectiveness of uv continuum subtraction
    • vacation schedules


Developer Reports

Monday Meeting
  • Sanjay Bhatnagar
  • Sandra Castro
  • Lindsey Davis
    • prepared pipeline C4R2 prerelease release notes
    • C4R2 prerelease testing
    • completed flux measurement summary for AQUA report
    • investigated calanalysis tool data selection issue in the pipeline
    • followup on C4R2 calibration issues with the PWG
    • followup on ALMA pipeline infrastructure deployment issues
  • Pam Ford
  • Kumar Golap
  • Justo Gonz├ílez Villalba
    • cross-validation of uvcontsubTVI vs uvcontsub3
  • Jim Jacobs
    • Namespace conversion mentioned above.
  • Jeff Kern
  • Susan Loveland
  • David Mehringer
    • Spent most of the week investigating ways to parallelize LatticeStatistics and the underlying stats framework. Success with some use cases, but failures (ie performance decreased) with others. Have been consulting with Julian for ideas.
    • (CAS-8758) immoments "chans" param: missing support of multiple ranges specified as frequencies?: Not supported. Because the support for range specification in the chans parameter comes directly from CRTF spec, I assigned to Juergen to decide if this should be modified to support multiple range specifications per line.
    • (CAS-8477) exportuvfits not honoring multiple spectral windows in FEED table: RTT. PR merged.
    • (CAS-3478) Accessible output for imfit: RTT. Increased position precision as requested.
    • (CAS-8229) ia.pad() does not mask properly: Resolved. Clarified my poor initial description and testing scenario.
  • George Moellenbrock
  • Dirk Petry
    • importevla now properly works with ephemeris objects CAS-7861
    • discussions on vpmanager CAS-8508
  • Martin Pokorny
  • Urvashi Rao
    • CAS-6675 : makepb/pbcor into tclean
      • Added 'makepb' and 'pbcor' functionality for cube and single-term mfs.
      • Synchronized the way gridder='mosaic' and 'makepb' for other gridders get their beam models - i.e. via the vpmanager by loading its state from a table.
      • Added test_refimager tests for pbcor. Did ALMA and EVLA simulated tests.
      • tclean task interface changes
    • test_refimager failures due to mosaicft on OSx vs EL6 :
      • Got a login on a local Mac machine with the intention of making a debug build there.
      • Determined (via the pbcor work) which of the two OSs was giving the correct numerical value. It's EL6. So, edited the tests so that EL6 will pass, and OSX will fail again.
    • Usual discussions and some user support emails.
  • Darrell Schiebel
  • Ville Suoranta
  • Julian Taylor
  • Takahiro Tsutsumi
Friday NAOJ Meeting
  • Kanako Sugimoto
    • fixes to tsdbaseline
    • modified CASA 4.7 targets and assignees. the following tickets are removed from 4.7 targets
      • higher order interpolation for pointing direction in calmode='otf' ( CAS-8418): not used until C6
      • MS transition of side band separation algorithm ( CAS-8091): not used until C7
      • interacitve operation for Nobeyama ( CAS-8089): requirements are not yet finalized.
  • Wataru Kawasaki
  • Masaya Kuniyoshi
  • Takeshi Nakazato
    • fixed casa_add_google_test macro bug that only affects OSX build
  • Renaud Miel
    • CAS-8082 PlotMS Header
      • Qt / model/view framework / tested QTableview widget
      • PlotMS code reading + analysis / QPPlotter
        • Traced plot export in Eclipse
