SKA Meeting -- Meeting between DMS mgmt and SKA to create an MOU for advancing the data model for CASA -- make CASA scale better for parallelization. Agreed to work on MSv3. Our current HPC effort scales to hundreds of cores. SKA needs a model that scales to thousands of cores. Timescale is a year. This will be run as a subproject of casa. However, SKA will be doing the work and mostly managing the project.
VLASS CDR was this week. Still technical requirements that are in flux. Not many action items likely to come out of the CDR for CASA. There are 2 blockers: additional DA support needed; discrepancy in polarization calibration must be understood.
User testing of tclean on going.
Problem with frequency axis.
Mask / tclean issues
Documentation display issues that need to be fixed.
Lindsey's doc error messages: we depend on web browser modeule from python; it depends on stuff that Linux/OSX provides for opening browser. It might be good to catch the error and generate a human-readable error message.
Final documentation review on week of June 5th.
Moved one of the test Macs to a build Mac
Needed to keep up with Bamboo builds
CASA guides are not working, so for now they have been taken out of the test suite
Certain machines only see data-local, but CASA guide data is in data-shared
Will be put back in after the 5.0 release
Both master and prerelease are looking at the same test directory
New tests in master will not work in prerelease
New tests will be put in after the 5.0 release
There will be some discussion within the build and test teams, and decisions made on how to manage this issue without impacting the CI system
Andy was considered for this group, but mostly he will not need to attend.
This type of management team was tried in the Rob Selina era. It worked.
Release note preparation
Updates to pipeline manifest and aqua report generator
ALMA code move related work - disentangling code generation steps from makefiles, pushing forward on syncing ALMA and CASA versions before the move.
Some GBT-related work.
Preparation for UC
VLA tour last Thursday for Socorro 4th grade. (Thanks also to Kumar for helping!)
Re-examined CAS-6130 and CAS-8527: there are still some problems with cal library relating to lack of availability of calibration for all spws known to an MS. Best to fix this in 5.1.
5.1 JIRA planning
Federico M Pouzols
Thursday 25 is a holiday in Germany
CAS-5808: "rflag's use of timedev and timedevscale parameters", ready to verify/test.
CAS-9089: automatic generation of antenna position corrections from web service / ALMA TMC DB. Service time out issue just fixed after our ICT leads promoted ticket to "blocker": http://ictjira.alma.cl/browse/ICT-9872. Hoping to get this ready for testing next week.
Checked in a temporary fix for tclean automask issue on nfs mounted disk for 5.0
Looked into on tclean 's cube image setup difference between 4.7.2 and 5.0 (CAS-10194)
Friday NAOJ Meeting
Fully migrated to Eclipse + EGit development environment thanks to instruction wiki by Takeshi.
Appropriate UNIT handling in singledishfiller ( CAS-10043): import part is done in Nobeyama and scantable filler. CORRECTED_DATA column generated by calibrator tool does not respect optional UNIT keyword while mstransform does. Need to decide what to do.
