image size chop the coverage a bit thus fft of beam may alias
all diff images large differences are in zones that are masked or not covered
Looked into regression failures..mostly test setup issues

NOTE: Monday 9th June is bank holiday in Germany
New WEIGHT/SIGMA handling in mstransform (CASA 4.2.2.)
Implemented channel avg. and re-gridding sections (with help of Dirk).
I'm now in the process of testing it vs split and cvel, and I have ran into what seems to be an issue in the *= Array operator
On the other hand I have converged with George with the modifications to be done on the time avg. side
The time avg. sections will require modifications not only in mstransform but also in the AveragingTVI: I have detected significant and already existing miss-aligments in the way WEIGHT/SIGMA is used to do time avg. in AveragingTVI.
Fixed Plotms Bugs (CAS-6605) and Viewer Bug (CAS-6610) for 4.2.2
Worked on CARTA UI.
fixed recently introduced segfault exposed by test_imval.py
spent a lot of time proving that a tester's claims were incorrect that spxfit was not producing correct solutions for various sets of inputs. I'm guessing she did not understand how the solutions were encoded in the output images, which is explained in the help.
Fixed ia.imageconcat() bug in which tabular coordinate for non-contiguous images was sometimes not being computed correctly
Added reorder input param to ia.imageconcat() so user may specify if images should be auto-ordered.
Queried imfit ticket requested for clarification.
Responded to Mark's query if Juergen and I had discussed an image smoothing related ticket's requirements. We have and Juergen agreed to furnish me with complete use cases, including detailed inputs and outputs. I haven't received that info yet and so am blocked on this task until I do.
Request input about "toggle warning messages in ia tool" requirements; the associated ticket consisted only of that title with no details specified in it.
Put on hold and assigned to Mark for tracking "imfit estimates should allow sky coordinates in addition to pixel values" ticket because management and the CSSC need to design and agree upon a detailed format that estimates are to take, and also from where the estimates will come (input parameters, a file, both)?
Enquired about viewer->clean clean box communcation re: "bizarre clean boxes for large images"
corrected rg.wpolygon() example in documentation
communicated with the reported of an older imfit ticket who wanted a quantity added to the output dictionary that has already been added as part of the imfit output dictionary redesign.
fixed an imfit issue in which fixing the major or minor axis was causing the task to fail
Looked at test_ia_pv.py failure logs on the 4.2.2 branch and determined the failure was due to Scott not having a necessary test fixture in his data repos
Continued discussions with Justo on mstransform weight adjustments
Preparations for Technical Forum talk on weights
WEIGHT_SPECTRUM deployment planning
Calibration error analysis studies
PEP interview w/ Jeff
Started JIRA housecleaning as per Jeff's advice
Old laptop housecleaning in prep for new Macbook
Added ClarkClean and MEM minor cycle. MEM needs some debugging.
Tried to organize imager refactor to-do lists (completed and remaining) into JIRA tickets : CAS-6631 is the overview and contains subsets based on topic.
Worked with summer student and spent some time working around a bug in which a csys given into ia.newimagefromarray() shows up correctly in imhead but not in the Viewer. Will report it properly soon.
OSX 10.8 -- llvm-gcc42 does not build properly, created new apple-gcc42 port with gfortran patched in builds cleanly but conflicts with libunwind-headers (will resolve this today)
CAS-6060 -- copied RHEL5 casa build tree to different RHEL5 host, build tree runs without error, but tar-distro dies with SEGV, the cause is still unresolved
Long-term schedule/resource model & planning.
JIRA ticket audit.
Another bug fix on fluxscale dictionary for 4.2.2
setjy mutli-spw handling improvement (on python-side), still need modifications to ft to fully benefit from it
Reviewed most of the JIRA tickets assigned to me. Updated all the 'Bug' tickets by adding status comments and/or setting Fix Version and also resolved few other tickets.
Friday NAOJ Meeting
In-place modification of input file (outfile==infile) does not work with disk storage in sdflag, sdreduce, and sdcal2 ( CAS-6601): Fixed the tasks to work with disk storage and defined relevant functional tests. NOTE the fix is committed to release-4_2_2 branch since the bug is serious one which causes an abort of casapy.
Quality assurance of functional tests of new SD tasks ( CAS-5873): Checked tests updated by Takeshi and Wataru and gave some more feed backs. The work is mostly done but there is a room for couple more improvements. I'm waiting for action by Shinnosuke for sdlist and Wataru for sdgrid.
field selection by numpy.string_ in sdimaging ( CAS-6243): fixed and committed to trunk.
day-off: June 2nd
updating/repairing SD unit test codes (sdcal2, sdsave, sdgrid).
proper handling flagging information in SD tasks (parent ticket : CAS-1756)
discussed with other SD developers to define how flagging information should be handled in each SD tasks.
created new sub-tickets of CAS-1756 (CAS-6582 - CAS-6600) for each SD tasks (due date : June 30)
resolved old sub-tickets CAS-1757 and CAS-1758 since they become duplicated with the above new sub-tickets.
Takeshi Nakazato: no casa work this week, update pipeline tasks according to casa sd task interface change in 4.2.2 CAS-6574
CAS-6461: put an explanation about removed/modified line of casa2pycli.xsl.
pipeline automatic verification shell script with crond
Build, Release, Testing
4.2.2 pre-release package out last Friday. User testers (3) ropped in for weights evaluation.
Split testing this week (comparing old and new versions)
Data analysts testing out GUIs. Minor tickets sent in, no blockers so far.
No user testers meeting this week, one next week planned.
Plotms occasionally dies and brings down CASA. Hard to reproduce, found in pipeline regression testing. Mark will follow up with data analysts to see if it can be chased down.
4.2.2 work shifting to OSX release. Work on OSX pre-release now, with RHEL on back-burner.
Shooting for simultaneous public release of 4.2.2 on OSX and RHEL.
No 4.3 test package scheduled.
Next CTF will be on Thursday - George - Weights in CASA
Two weeks from now - Dave on Image Analysis.
Justo working on changes to split/cvel. Will be included in next pre-release for 4.2.2.
Testing still in progress, bug fixes to follow.
Dave has tickets (mostly imfit) that need clarification. Placed on hold requiring input.
