(Ryan) Revised CASA Management Plan (reinforcing development practices, including documentation, correctness standards, code reviews, limited use of engineering tasks, monthly releases); final version due in a few weeks.
casa6 build instructions coming soon!
(Mark) RHEL6 issues... (Ryan: vmware-based, so should be immune...)
Nearly ready for validation/merge-to-master for 6.3 (waiting for 5.8/6.2 branching)
(Mark, CAS-13270) Handle NaNs in imported Tsys. Merged.
(Des, CAS-13224?) memory management improvements in fringefit. (already essentially validated by Janssen)
(Mark, CAS-8550) Pulsar-binned and single-IF import now not blocked by sys power support in exportuvfits; Need to coordinate casacore merge after 5.8/6.2 branching (pending CAS-11860?). The casacore uprev in progress on CAS-13442. Merged
(Mark, CAS-13383) Mixed polarization basis conversion for JIVE. Merged.
Need to push these to/thru verification, to be poised for validation and merge (George to liase with Jen on validation)
Ongoing for 6.3+6.4
(George, CAS-12735; 12765,12553; 12954,10276) Frequency meta-info (work continues...)
(Mark, CAS-13466) AveragingTvi2 preavg opt-out for fringefit: Ready for verification and validation.
(George: no-rates mode ok? Should be ok.)
(CAS-13287 chunking error in AveragingTvi2 for certain conditions; under separate investigation)
(Mark, CAS-13266) Per-scan interpolation via overloading per-obs mechanism.
Awaiting review by George
(Des, CAS-13056) Overlapping solution intervals
Initial implementation awaiting review by George
(Neal, CAS-13005) Handle refant exhaustion better. Neal to add warnings for pathological case
(Mark, CAS-13473) (new) Permit smoothcal for accor solutions: Mark arranging verification test
Justin: context: USNO user finding f.d. scale very sensitive (20%!) to smoothing accor solutions or not (in AIPS). Unclear if accor solutions should really need smoothing; probably related to something pathological in the specific data itself which pivots sensitively on smoothing AC-related info, e.g., RFI.
(Neal, CAS-13005) rerefant needs better warnings for continuity pathologies. Mark has provided Neal a good example.
Underway for 6.3+6.4
(Des, CAS-13361) Polarization combination for fringefit. (deploy for fringefit 6.3, other things for 6.4?)
Awaiting review by George
(Mark, CAS-13003). EOP update (6.4).
(Mark/Des) Using external storage managers (DysCo) with CASA 6. (Offringa). Prospects for adding to casacore?
CAS-12485: OTF weight munging for solve (Can we complete validation and deploy? Des seeking interested users at JIVE)
(George/Justin) to coordinate initial testing on CASR-463 (TEC) to better characterize basic requirements (also CAS-13040 re TEC retrieval changes)
