(George) Should casa-staff email list be expanded to include external groups (and thus shower them with all manner of daily trivia)? Or should there be a distinct email exploder expressly for important announcements relevant to the broader CASA contribution community?
Question from Bjorn: "Is fringefit still 'experimental' in CASA 6.2?"
(George) CAS-12735: Frequency meta-info (includes generalized fix for CAS-12553, and several other bug tickets) DEFERRED to 6.3
(Des) CAS-12765 (wide-spaced spws): waiting for freq meta fix in CAS-12735
(Neal) CAS-13184: accor corrdepflags. DONE.
(Mark) CAS-8537: gain curve. DONE.
(Neal) CAS-12736 (revised accor test). DONE.
(Mark) CAS-12989 (eMerlin crosshands) Validation complete (Anita Richards). Need hard-to-get eMerlin dataset for proper verification test....
(Pam Harris) CAS-11318: Fringe-fitting solution plotting has been implemented in plotms! DONE.
(CAS-13056, CAS-13003, and possibly CAS-13005 to slip to next cycle)
CASA 5.9/6.3+6.4 prioritization underway
(Justin) Anything to report?
(George) Several of the more interesting VLBA-specific feature requests (resolved polarization calibrators, VLBA pulse-cal, VLA SysPower for Tsys, TEC) may indeed be hard to schedule this year.
(Mark) Likely to support pulse-cal effort with ingestion definition and mechanics based on recent similar work for Tsys, gaincurve. NB: required algorithmic development will likely borrow heavily from the existing fringefit implementation, including an ambiguity-resoloving step using a fringefit solve on a short scan
(George) Scan intent-setting likely a good project for Neal
