Build / Testing

  • Infrastructure
    • N/A
  • Unit
    • N/A
  • Verification
    • Proposal for Test Levels 1&2 : Further discussion (since we ran out of time last week before anyone in CV could discuss).
    • ----- Level 1 : First steps (Ascertain existing coverage in C++ and python (ongoing by UR), Filling gaps in list (ongoing by AH/NS), Fill gaps within imaging tests for widefield/wideband and current hotspots for stakeholders (to be done by UR), Write new calibration module tests (planning by NS/GM).
    • ----- Level 2 : Test data is already coming in from the VLASS team. Write tests to verify code correctness (UR). Need sci-req list for metrics that VLASS cares about (JO). Get some use-case info from ALMA to address current issues (FM?UR?JO?).
    • Iteration on including refimager at pull request level testing
      • Getting close to implementation
    • Finished tests for imreframe and imsubimage NS
  • Validation
    • Kana: status of tickets moving to PIPE?
    • Under Validation (issues remaining in validation for CASA 5.5)
      • BLOCKER CAS-11191 tclean mosaic gridder should be able to use VLA POINTING table properly averaging over visibility integration time (related to CAS-12223)
      • BLOCKER CAS-9108 Linear basis-specific 'Xf' (multi-scan) improvements (and several related polarization tickets)
      • BLOCKER CAS-7210 (CAS-4640) Connect imaging weight gridder ( TCLEAN producing arc-like noise patterns when imaging small chunks of data when robust<1 )
      • BLOCKER CAS-11978 mfs PSF generation fails in mpi mode with multiple ms'es and briggs or uniform weighting unless mosweight=False explicitly
      • CAS-8619 Turn im.apparentsens into a CASA task -- must be finished this week (tester headed to AoD shift)
      • CAS-11460 im.apparentsens to use the regular channel selection syntax -- must be finished this week (tester headed to AoD shift)
      • CAS-8087 Support plotting pointing direction (R.A.-Dec.) by plotms
      • CAS-12168 L1 and outlier rejection implementation
      • CAS-10593 Make component list prediction with beam use frequency variation
      • CAS-12021 Add re-referencing support to fringefit task
      • CAS-11501 connecting the dots for caltables in plotms
      • CAS-11178 fix stand-alone viewer startup on linux
      • CAS-10518 Reenable OpenMP in UVContsubTVI if possible
    • not yet ready to validate but still needed in 5.5:
      • George's two tickets for cal library fixes, CAS-12237 and CAS-12280 (I think)
      • CAS-11140 Update ATM for CASA 5.5
      • CAS-11367 modify test_refimager to also run in parallel when an mpi cluster is available (?)
      • and from search of JIRA for 5.5 blockers not above or closed: CAS-12103 conjbeams default for mosaic gridder in tclean (5.5), CAS-12277 Add simulator configuration files ALMA Cycle-7 and ngVLA to CASA 5.5
      • CAS-12302 Updating XML files of CASA tasks
      • pointing tables for awproject, Preshanth to do, not yet in a CAS ticket (?), CAS-7727?

User Liaison Updates

  • N/A

Pipeline Updates

  • Pipeline F2F at Edinburgh last week
  • PIPE JIRA project is available
    • All relevant Pipeline tickets are migrated to PIPE project
    • 17 remaining CAS tickets with fix version of old releases and under validation.
  • ALMA Pipeline schedule and targets are updated (
  • KS will be on vacation Mar. 12 - 26th. Should be reachable via email.
