Build, Release, Testing

  • Status: Pipeline acceptance this week, or release w/o



  • A web page summarizing the warnings status exists and will be updated weekly. It does a clean Debug build of the code project on RHEL 6.


  • Hardened the cmake logic that configures Google test. Any errors that occur are now cmake errors; before the errors showed up somewhat mysteriously during the actual make.
  • Full support for Google Test is awaiting cmake upgrade on Jenkins.
  • The status of unit and module tests in CASA code is available on the web.


  • CUC talk.




Developer Reports

Monday Meeting
  • Sanjay Bhatnagar
  • Sandra Castro
    • No real work in CASA. Poster preparation and talk preparation.
  • Lindsey Davis
    • preparation for and participation in Casa User's Committee pipeline workshop (with Jeff and Brian Kent)
    • reviewed C3R3 ALMA pipeline imaging test plans
    • C3R3 testing and bug fixing
  • Pam Ford
    • CAS-7830 (cancel plotms cache loading) - additional work to stop processing cache (e.g. setting up indexer) when user cancels loading
    • User support question about Locate output (chunk indexing)
  • Kumar Golap
    • fixed a weight issue in msuvbin and doing some extensive testing on the cluster
    • Worked on some "science": trying out a self-masking-Hogbom clean
  • Justo Gonz├ílez Villalba
    • Fixed issue related with sub-table consolidation in the MMS context
    • Improved error handling in mstransform to facilitate log filtering in the parallel context
    • Worked on a parallel test for OTF calibration, reported corresponding issues to George
    • Fixed a mapping problem in flag propagation feature of Averaging TVI (now under science testing from Juergen)
  • Jim Jacobs
    • See architecture section above.
  • Jeff Kern
    • Casa Users Committee
    • Job Ad for new PM
  • Susan Loveland
    • CARTA: Wrote 7 new selenium tests for Axis Permutations/Contours; remaining time spent bug fixing.
  • David Mehringer
    • (CAS-5597) CRTF doco improvements: RTT. Added requested INFO message.
    • Fixed various rg- and ia-related tests.
    • (CAS-4663) specfit components/prompt/inf: Added unit test to verify inf values are masked.
    • (CAS-7969) refactor ia.rotate(): RTT. ImageAnalysis::rotate() -> ImageRotator::rotate().
    • (CAS-7971) move ImageAnalysis::newimagefromfile() to ImageFactory: RTT. Refactor complete.
    • (CAS-7966) simobserve crashes in 4.4 when it works in 4.2.2: Discussions with Remy and Sarah about in which CASA versions things were fixed. Modified one of the ia image factory methods to support FITS images which have non-Float valued pixels.
    • (CAS-7972) remove/refactor ImageAnalysis::newimagefromarray(): RTT. Refactor completed.
    • (CAS-7974) Eliminate compiler warnings for IA specific code on OSX. Resolved. IA-related OSX compiler warnings terminated.
    • (CAS-7975) move ImageAnalysis::imagefromfits() to ImageFactory: RTT. Refactor complete.
    • (CAS-7976) remove ImageAnalysis::newimagefromfits(): RTT. Refactor complete.
    • Read CUC preliminary report distributed by Jeff.
    • (CAS-7978) move ImageAnalysis::maketestimage() to ImageFactory: RTT. Refactor complete.
    • Refactored ImageAnalysis::brightnessunit().
  • George Moellenbrock
    • Test programs for synthesis/MeasurementComponents
    • Culled calibration-related compiler warnings in synthesis. (Still lots in TransformMachines, which I leave to the imaging gurus.)
    • Began investigating MMS-related "NullSelection" cal library problem noted by Justo
    • Various user support (Momjian, Hales, Rich Rand)
  • Dirk Petry
  • Martin Pokorny
  • Urvashi Rao
  • Darrell Schiebel worked on:
    • running regression tests from casa command line
      • two approaches
        • running tests sequentially within casa process (via robotframework); dumps core
        • running tests like nightly runs (each test in separate process); mostly works, X11 issue with some tests
    • replacing boost::thread with C++11 thread
  • Ville Suoranta
  • Julian Taylor
  • Takahiro Tsutsumi
    • Wrote python functions to read new asteroid models and give back flux densities. How exactly integrating these into setjy is still pending as I am waiting for Bryan's comments.
    • Science: sent instructions on the point source removal for the Cycle 2 SZE data to the PI
Friday NAOJ Meeting
  • Kanako Sugimoto
  • Wataru Kawasaki
