User Liaison Updates

Pipeline Updates

  • Another round of tests and bug fixes in the previous week... prerelease-5.4.1-21 is avalable for all fixes. Plotms still wating for merge.
    • connecting dots in caltable plots (CASA: CAS-11915, PL: CAS-11730) ... still waiting for CASA.
    • WebLog issue with per band image ( CAS-11848) ... fixed but there are still a cosmetic issue. Would this be blocker for release?
    • QA fixes (parent: CAS-10907) ... under tests
    • statwt issues ... Dave fixed a syntax issue in CASA. But there seems to be flagging issue in statwt. Juergen and Josh are looking into the symptom.
    • online averaging ... done
  • Pipeline developers F2F is next week in Socorro
  • SRDP L2 requirement definition ... ongoing
  • ALMA Cy7 priority passed from PWG. Need resource assessment.

Single Dish Development

  • Wataru Kawasaki
    • CAS-11503
      • confirmed tsdimaging's behaviour is right. sdimaging to be fixed.
      • modified the old imager code Imager::imagecoordinates2() so that only selected spectra to be used to get coordinate info. no unit tests affected for sdimaging and clean.
      • now DATE-OBS, CRVAL3 and CDELT3 are consistent between sdimaging and tsdimaging.
      • pushed modifications to the origin and reassigned the JIRA ticket to Daniel Tafoya for user testing
  • Takeshi Nakazato
    • CASAdoc change proposal feedback
    • CAS-11589 confirmed that test_importasap and test_importnro were registered to Bamboo
    • CAS-9871 fix _pg interface issues: ran single dish pipeline with test package and confirmed that the bug reported in CAS-11784 has been fixed
  • Renaud Miel
    • CAS-8087!PlotMS pointings
      • Created test package for testing feedback
  • Suminori Nishie
    • CAS-11427Unit Test (UT)
      • Linear-interplation Test, prototype done, refactoring in progress , capable of reporting floating point error infomation.
      • This will be the Unit-test base of next CAS-8418 (high-order interporation)
    • CASA 5.5
      • Reading existing codes concerning to CAS-8418 (High-order Pointing Interporation).
      • Stuying mathmatical background of spline-interpolation to design unit-test MS data specification.
