Developer Reports

Monday Meeting
  • Sanjay Bhatnagar
    • Debugging AW-Project FT Machine (Writing paper on Imaging Module)
  • Sandra Castro
  • Lindsey Davis
  • Kumar Golap
    • Debugged msuvbin
    • Trying to optimize msuvbin. Still very slow for the 1.5 TB output that they requested...may have to run it as multiple MS's
    • Debugged a slowness of SynthesisImager::weight...
      • moved an inner loop calculation out.
      • Noted that the remaining slowness v/s old imager::weight is due to the fact that vi2/vb2 is still unoptimized in terms of when to recalculate etc
  • Justo Gonz├ílez Villalba
    • New method to rescale weight column
    • MSTransform and cvel unification
    • Parallel issue with circular dependency (See Jim's item)
  • Jim Jacobs
    • Will be splitting MSVis area from synthesis to create a resurrected MSVis module.
    • Will create first draft of high-level design for Carta.
    • Will continue editing CASA Architecture document to focus down on the most important part; other parts to become auxiliary documents.
  • Jeff Kern
    • Job offer for CARTA backfill
    • CUC Meeting (Wrote presentation and gave it)
  • Susan Loveland
    • CARTA work
    • Fix for plotms CAS-6662
  • David Mehringer
    • Responded to question on listobs posted to casa-staff.
    • More work on ComponentListImage design.
    • Worked on adding support for complex-valued images to imregrid.
    • Much work on task to move casacore-components to code. Finished phase 1 but am blocked on the final phase until the ASAP casacore-components dependencies are removed.
    • Requested sample ESO images from Andy for which viewer spectral fitter was written.
    • Prepared for and gave CTF talk on recent image analysis developments.
    • Talked with Mark about my dislike of requests for new features which have significant costs associated with them that enter our system through JIRA (rather than our various help desks) and are immediately assigned to develoeprs without having first passed through management/CSSC channels for formal approval and prioritization, especially when their requirements have been poorly defined (eg CAS-5740).
    • Resolved CAS-6458 (Feasibility of allowing image cubes to have null-sized restoring beams in some planes) by suggesting an alternative that Urvashi said she could live with.
    • Removed ImageOpener::pagedImageDataType() per Ger's request (CAS-6731).
  • George Moellenbrock
  • Dirk Petrey
    • SPIE: Talk on QA2
      • CASA Article in SPIE
    • Started working on new Spectral Reference Frame
  • Urvashi Rao
    • Testing of EL6 Builds and Log messages
    • Working on restoring beams
      • What to do when there is a gap in the data, put in a fake beam (biggest beam, average beam?) Should fix first channel having bad beam.
  • Darrell Schiebel
  • Rob Selina
  • Takahiro Tsutsumi
    • More work on 'setpol' function on setjy. Wrote some helper functions for setting IQU fluxes
      from polarization index and polarization angle
    • Worked on fixing OSX10.7 developer build on my Mac which was broken for a couple months

Friday NAOJ Meeting
  • Kanako Sugimoto
    • Summarized status of JIRA ticket of CASA 4.2.2 and asked Bunyo and developers for action.
    • Actions for user test reports of 4.2.2 targets: fixed calculation of cell size and center in sdgrid. fixes and improvements of inline help of sdreduce and sdflag.
    • Sent items of release notes and known issues of CASA 4.2.2 to Bunyo.
    • Proper handling of flag information, addition of functional tests with flagged data in sdgrid ( CAS-6590), sdfit ( CAS-6587), sdplot ( CAS-6595), and sdtpimaging ( CAS-6600): ongoing
  • Wataru Kawasaki
    • proper flag handling in SD tasks: 5/9 implementation finished and ready to test (sdcoadd:CAS-6586 , sdlist:CAS-6593 , sdsave:CAS-6597 , sdscale:CAS-6598 , sdstat:CAS-6599)
  • Takeshi Nakazato: proper flag information handling on sdaverage (CAS-6582: RTT), sdreduce (CAS-6596: In Progress), and sdcal2 (CAS-6571, CAS-6582: In Progress)
  • Shinnosuke Kawakami
    • without async, run regression/unittest
