CASA Software Engineering Project: Design a CASA Package Contents Reporting System

Design and build a system for recording and reporting the contents of CASA packages, including reporting for users (public version numbers, new features, bug fixes, known issues, etc.) and developers (internal version numbers, change control data, file checksums, etc.).

Status: See CAS-5475.


  • CASA Developers
