Polarization cal ( George is away - top 2 or three issues proceeding as planned )
Pipeline parallelization ( anything major other than Imaging ?)
Async I/O - Martin ?
Imaging development :
1 feature for VLASS (N-sigma thresholds) and 1 for ALMA (multi-ms ephemeris table support) )
Supporting tclean tests (especially with parallelization). Will talk with the (remaining) imaging team to divide the work. At least two issues are blocking further testing by the HPC group and PLWG.
Significant de-scoping of ALMA Cycle5 interferometry project lifecycle requirements
VLASS calibration and imaging pipeline discussions and development (primarily Claire, Raphael, Brian, Joe)
ALMA interferometry development
Corrected amplitude / model based flagging task
Imaging precheck task
Auxiliary data handling improvements
QA / AQUA report generation improvements
ALMA single dish development
Investigation of memory usage issues
Various planning meetings
Discussing with Sanjay on how to take the exposure into account in the returned Matrix of MSSelection::getTimeList(). Flagdata list mode needs a way to understand if the timerange has a bracket notation (include exposure) or not. CAS-10142
Support to Dave on the inclusion of flagbackup in statwt2.
Following up on Dirk's pull request with a modification to casacore.
going through JIRA fix version and setting them accordingly.
Improvements to ALMA pipeline auxiliary products handling
QA2 flagging support
many discussions and meetings
transitioned unresolved 5.0 tickets to 5.1
ms tool refactoring:
fixed MSContinuumSubtractor::subtract2 (CAS-8283 Under Validation)
set channel-averaged flagged data to zero in ms.selectchannel2/getdata2 as in selectchannel/getdata (CAS-10316 waiting for Branch Package)
atmospheric curve (CAS-9053) in progress
CAS-7861 CASA dies on VLA ephemeris datasets. This was thought to be finished, but a new bug turned up when it was retested. This new bug is related to same root cause in CAS-9288. It's a simple fix, but I need to do a more thorough job of looking for other similar problems elsewhere in the filler and some code archaeology to understand when the new bug arose.
Feedback on planned ASDM changes.
Ongoing work on the planned asdm model and generated code move.
Some GBT-related sdfits work.
Started implementation of async vi2
Federico M Pouzols
CAS-9853 "mstransform (regridms=True) implementation of correct gridding" merged into 5.0. Created CAS-10331 replica for master/CASA 5.1. Does this need validation, or just PR straight after my verification?
CAS-5727 "Flagdata's scan list in log-reports per chunk" - ready to validate.
Urvashi Rao * Meetings, JIRA. * Discussions and some minor debugging for : (increased mosaic memory use, problems with restarts, subtle numerical issue with parallel imaging on very large datasets (float precision?) ) * Some discussion with Takeshi/Kumar/Sanjay/Tak about how best to add the SD gridder into the refactored imager so that it plays well with the rest of the system and opens up options for new algorithms. * Continued work with 2 summer students. Iterated with helpdesk about a replacement work laptop.
Worked on predcitcomp unit test
Investigated Claire's automask issue
Attended ngVLA workshop
Friday NAOJ Meeting
Started to work on sideband separation algorithm ( CAS-8091)
Reviewed 5.1 targets
4 plone document tickets assigned to NAOJ members who left CASA team. Commented on ticket to see how Jen wants to proceed. But the document should not be updated for 5.1 now anyways...
Reassigned tickets Erik had.
completed CAS-10039 and CAS-10267
discussion on migration of sdimaging task to synthesisimager tool (today?)
worked on importnro bug (CAS-10330)
set up macOS 10.12 development environment (related to sdimaging intermittent failure)
CAS-8082 Bug fixes ongoing, communication with tester (Eiji Akiyama)
