Build, Release, Testing

  • CASA-4.3 Release Status
    • Known blockers:
      • import ASDM failing on trunk - Need to check
      • plotMS iterator output file naming (Sequence Number vs. Iterator)
      • Sigma Spectrum issue in msTransform - working on it (this week)
      • CAS-7020 Error opening EVLA MS
        • Fix from Ger did not complete fixes
      • George has a maybe issue where applycal goes very slowly. Cause unknown.
  • Launcher wrapper has been updated should see this in test tomorrow.
  • StatWt Failure: Seems like a bug

    • Casacore, when?



  • Feedback from pipeline meeting


Developer Reports

Monday Meeting
  • Sanjay Bhatnagar
  • Sandra Castro
  • Lindsey Davis
  • Pam Ford
    • CAS-7021 - Added precision to rest frequency in Transform tab in plotms
  • Kumar Golap
  • Justo Gonz├ílez Villalba
    • CAS-6529: Fixed issue reported by 4.3 Science Testing when separating one single SPW (DDI was not being reindex)
    • CAS-7020: Investigated casacore problem when dealing with SORTED_TABLE (bigger than 2GB)
    • CAS-6746: Implemented a method to check ISM problem (table.testincrstman())
    • CAS-7081: Tested parsing of env. variable from mpirun (MPI has to be installed)
  • Jim Jacobs
    • Looked at Ger's changes to ConCat table as a solution to the "too many files open" problem.
    • Investigated google-test as a possible system for use in C++ unit tests for CASA.
  • Jeff Kern
    • Pipeline WG Face to Face
    • Pipeline Development Face to Face
  • Susan Loveland
    • CAS-7043
    • CARTA state
  • David Mehringer
    • Began stats framework implementation.
    • Removed pgplot-related parameters from ia.statistics() and ia.moments() and modified related class interfaces re: CAS-5821 References to plotting devices need to be removed from ia methods
    • Fixed a couple of bugs re: (CAS-5836) Create new task imrebin
    • Reassigned to Rob for consideration and prioritization re CAS-3478 Accessible output for imfit
    • Reassigned to Rob for consideration and prioritization re CAS-3807 Add support for voigt profile fitting to specfit
    • Resolved CAS-4386 Parallelize imfit as won't fix because of exceedingly high cost.
  • George Moellenbrock
    • DRW workshop "Polarization" talk prep, including some coordination with Emmanuel
    • Pro bono work on statwt regression failure. Request: please announce if you are taking responsibility for regression failure investigations so Mark and others know
    • Some user support discussions at AOC: Huib on polarization calibration, Juergen and Steve (for separate helpdesk queries) on the galactic center (self-)calibration challenge
    • Tried not to ignore prodding PEP emails, but failed.
    • Discussions with Justo on formation of SIGMA_SPECTRUM by mstransform, hopefully converged
    • Extensive work on building a fake MS with known properties for testing calibration generally (most notably weight calibration, at this state); saw strange sporadic applycal performance
  • Dirk Petry
  • Urvashi Rao
    • Few parallel clean tests again on MS and MMS(with SB), to identify which fixes fixed what (too many open files, sorted_table, subms locks, etc).
    • User support emails + Prep slides for data reduction workshop + non CASA work.
  • Darrell Schiebel
    • finished adding ~/.casa/versions search to casa wrapper script
    • finished automated prerelease tests
    • converted hard NFS mounts to autofs on rhel5 test host
  • Rob Selina
  • Julian Taylor
  • Takahiro Tsutsumi
    • Added a check for the carriage return code (^M) for JPL ephemeris data file conersion script. It replaces ^M with \n so detected line break correctly
    • CAS-6912 bug fix for makemask (output='myoutfile:mymask')
    • test_statwt bug fix + modification in the response to the test failure. Only done in trunk, still need to check the fix in the release branch
    • setjy bug fix (will check in soon)
    • user support
Friday NAOJ Meeting
  • Kanako Sugimoto
  • Wataru Kawasaki
  • Masaya Kuniyoshi
  • Takeshi Nakazato
  • Shinnosuke Kawakami
