4.3 release branch has been created. Linux "new style" test and stable packages have been updated recently. All remaining 4.3 work should be bugfixes only. OS X packaging is currently being worked on. A pre-release package is available, and all 4.3 bugfix testing should be done on this whenever practical.
4.2.2 is the current public release version for both Linux and OS X.
If you are on a Red Hat 5 machine, you can access older versions via the '-r' option, e.g. 'casapy -r4.1.0'
If you are on Red Hat 6 and need CASA 4.1, run it from here: /home/casa/packages/RHEL5/release/casapy-41.0.24668-001-64b/casapy.
Descriptions of the new-style packages, how to start them, etc. are summarized on the following wiki pages:
The new-style packages are available on four machines in Charlottesville (zuul01 - 04). These are configured to allow local testing of the new-style stable package prior to the above roll-out. zuul01, 03 and 04 are running RHEL6, zuul02 is running RHEL5. REMEMBER: Use /usr/bin/casa on these machines to make sure that you are running the new test/stable packages. The new-style packages in Socorro have been rolled out (as far as 4.2.25, the 4.3 branch point). Anticipated deployment on Charlottesville cluster soon.
Number of CASA Jira tickets with "Ready To Test"/"Under Test" status (including EA, EU, JAO, Software-only tickets, but excluding Pipeline) prior to meeting: 69 (was 78).Number of CASA Jira tickets with "Ready To Test"/"Under Test" status (including EA, EU, JAO, Software-only tickets) following meeting: 63.
tclean - Early stage testing ongoing (Brian, Jen). Details of the testing are being recorded here.
Multipanel/multiplot testing for PlotMS? Some testing effectively conducted during the recent workshop, Juergen will test this (at least under Linux), Amanda will do some implicit testing as part of the data reduction process, items identified as issues under Linux may also be need to be checked under OS X by the Data Analysts. Also applies to the next agenda item.
Viewer and PlotMS testing - DAs
CAS-6604 - Viewer parent for all platforms, was for 4.2.2 pre-releases, now for 4.3. Some subtasks remain Open.
New ticket assignment See below. Only 4.3 focused on for this meeting.
The "nag list", "input required" items See below
Other testing items specifically raised? CAS-4623 moved up from "Unable to test" to "Under test" list, as Steve has identified a new suitable test dataset.
New Testing Assignments (see relevant section below)
Assignment of any other "To Be Assigned" Items.
The next meeting will take place on November 4th.
Any Other Business:
Juergen was concerned about other unresolved 4.3 blockers. As of now, these appear to be: CAS-6982 (fix in place, just awaiting testing), CAS-3666 (fix already in and thought to work, will undergo more testing if a suitable dataset presents itself, but probably OK, so not a blocker to a 4.3 public release), CAS-7008 (Pipeline-related issue: may already be fixed?)
Old Action Items
Action item on Mark R. to identify and follow up on 4.3-specific "Input Required" items. Done as part of the preparation of this agenda.
New Action Items Arising
Mark R. to distill the below into a 4.3 punch-list as soon as possible.
PART 1: Items to be Covered During Meetings (as time permits)
Propose to Close Items
CAS-6946 (Oct): mstransform creates ms with incorrect weight and sigma column shape. Subtask of CAS-5245. Under Test in new-style packages. Some preliminary testing done by Jim - seems to work fine. Tester: Steve Resolved as fixed.
CAS-6870 (Aug): Plotms: Summary not available prior to plotting. Under Test in 4.3 (r30873+). Tester: Lindsey.Ticket pinged repeatedly.Provisionally resolved as fixed.
CAS-3580 (Aug): 4.3 item. Prediction of expected image based noise based on Tsys. Under Test in 4.3. Tester: Eric V. (to be tested at the JAO).Kept open at Remy's express request.
Items Overdue for Status Updates (i.e. the "Nag List")
Lots of 4.3 items:
CAS-5836 (Nov): 4.3 item. Create new task imrebin. Under Test again in 4.4.9 or later (so testable again now). Tester: Adam. The dropdeg and box parameters should be hooked up correctly now. Close to done? No news.
CAS-4047 (Oct): applycal does not tell you how its interpolating in frequency & handling of multiple calibration tables and both frequency and time interpolation ambiguous. Under Test in 4.3. Will probably end up being tested on the 4.3 release branch. Tester: Amanda Looks pretty good. Some suggestions (mostly docs). Pased back to the developer for final documentation tweaking, but can then be resolved.
CAS-5848( 2014): 4.3. enhancements for imsmooth. Subtask of CAS-5844. Was "Under Test" (r30554+) in 4.3, now back with developer for a final comment. Smoothing looks good. Some minor tweaks needed: one-line help entry for 'kernel' needs updating, runs too far to the right. Close to done.
CAS-5191 (Mar): Add gain threshold parameter to fluxscale. Under Test (r28480) in any recent package. Tester: Arielle (was Crystal). Not tested yet.
CAS-6707 (Sep): mstransform problems with CALDEVICE and SYSPOWER sub-tables when creating an MMS. Under Test in 4.3. Tester: Previously passed to Steve for VLA user tester assignment. Discussed at length. Dependent on the level of parallelization expected for 4.3. Testing may not be practical until 4.4? See ticket for further details.
CAS-6178 (Sep): Make a wrapper of split to use the MSTransform framework. Under Test in 4.2.23+ packages. Tester: Drew. Mark L. had previously assigned Drew Brisbin a dataset to reduce that can probably be used for this purpose. Ongoing Drew had done some testing for this. split and split2 behavior appeared to be identical. Still need to test time averaging across scans, so testing is effectively ongoing.
CAS-6835 (Sep): Make a wrapper of cvel to use the MSTransform framework Under Test (r31057+) in current (new-style) stable. Tester: Juergen. This seems to work overall. There were some differences seen occasionally in results for a few cases (use of Barycentric coordinates, cubic interpolation)., but it is not yet known whether the new or old results are the right ones.
CAS-6778 (Sep): Add support for new 'OBJECT' reference framew in mstransform. Under Test (r31083+) in casapy-test. Tester: Arielle. Some testing done. Some issues raised - ticket reopened and passed back to developer for comment.
CAS-4758 (Sep): fluxscale fails if one of the reference fields is flagged. Under Test (r31121+) in current (new-style) stable. Tester: Claire. No progress.
CAS-6939 (Oct): plotms goes into infinite loop with gridcols=6, gridrows=6. Fix already included in current new-style test/stable/pre-release packages newer than 4.2.24. Under Test. Tester: Juergen Fixed (but spawned CAS-7074).
CAS-3666: split on spws gives errors for different correlation shapes. 4.3 Blocker. Had been stuck On Hold, but is causing problems for the VLA pipeline now, so needs to be fixed as soon as possible. The awaited mstransform and split2 functionality has now been committed. 4.3 item. Under Test in 4.3. Tester: Passed to Steve for reassignment someone in Socorro instead. New split roll-out deferred to 4.3 (see split2 tickets elsewhere on this page). See also above meeting notes on CAS-5785. Steve had suggested that this should perhaps be turned into part of the regression testing suite, and Sandra thinks that this is a good idea (the data are already being used in automated testing. Mark R. has posted a couple of suggestions to the ticket as to how to proceed from here.Mark R. to just confirm that Sandra's functional tests are already part of the automated testing suite. If so, then we will do the following: If Steve spots a new suitable test dataset, he will check this with that, but if not, we will proceed under the assumption for 4.3 that the automated testing at this point is sufficient. In other words, a lack of additional user testing of this item should not prevent a 4.3 release.
CAS-6529: MS processed with mstransform not handled correctly by uvcontsub, clean, etc... Under Test in latest new-style stables and pre-releases. Tester: Kristina. Mostly works now. One more fix just committed (r31369 in trunk, also now in release branch). Pinged Rob S. to make sure a suitable package is available for testing.
CAS-6729 (Sep): Update ATM library in CASA 4.3. ARTT in 4.3. Tester: Todd
CAS-6919 (Sep): A timesforintent method would be useful in msmd. Under Test (r31083+) in current (new-style) stable. Tester: Todd (was Nathan)
CAS-6912: makemask copy always replaces image. 4.3 item. "Under Test" again in stable package 4.4.9+. Tester: Juergen. Ongoing. Juergen had looked at this briefly, but found the behavior unchanged. However, the developer seems to see the corrected (and correct) behavior now, so it probably just needs to be tried again. Close to done.
CAS-6951 (Oct): mstransform creates a 4-polarization DATA column for single-polarization ALMA WVR data, and a 1-polarization DATA column for four-polarization ALMA data. Fix already included in current new-style test/stable packages newer than 4.2.23. Under Test. Tester: Todd
CAS-6982 wvrgcal claims 8 antennas are bad even if the scan with bad data is flagged, and requires split(keepflags=False) to prevent this error and produce a normal result. Scheduled. Blocker. Dirk has committed fixes for this (r31407 on trunk and 4.3 release branch r31408). Status: Under Test. Available in stable 4.4.10+ or similar pre-release package. Tester: Todd
CAS-6984 (Oct): wvrgcal cannot accept the following tie parameter: tie=['J0004-4736,J235538-451325']. Under Test. 4.3 item. Fix committed. Tester: Todd.
CAS-5845: sdcal/sdcal2 need improvements to documentation. Under Test for 4.3. Draft text posted to Jira ticket, just needs approval. Tester: Crystal.
CAS-7050 plotms iterator and plot file names. Under Test for 4.3. Tester: Brian Kent. Fix seems to partially work. A new fix for the antennas was subsequently committed.
CAS-6220 (Mar): Enable importasdm to read flags from the binary ASDM data. Under Test in any of the new-style stable packages. Commit was r28609. Ticket with Dirk for now. Todd had incidentally tested this while working on something else. Runs to completion (and sometimes generates a lot of INFO messages). Close to done, but kept open for now for second stage implementation of asdm2MS completion. Ongoing.
CAS-4623 (Aug): SetJy: Method to set Pol Fraction and Angle as Function of Frequency. Under Test in current packages. Tester: Steve (provisionally; perhaps Bryan?) Had been pending access to new testable package. Steve noted that there is some stuff in there, but it is not yet clear how to test it: it will need a test case dataset with known properties. Promoted to the "nag list". Steve now has a test dataset for this.
Other Items Currently "Under Test"
CAS-5893 (May): Now a 4.4 item. add the ability to write a spectral profile to an ASCII file in the ia tool. Was Under Test in 4.3. Commit was r29681. Tester: Assigned to Juergen for testing and a possible CSSC discussion. Pushed back to 4.4. Might also need a task adding for this for 4.4?
"Ready To Test" Items Pending Tester Assignment
Single Dish (to be skipped during the meeting)
CAS-5139 (Sep): Proper handling of flag information in sideband separation algorithm. Low priority item. Subtask of CAS-1756. Currently Under Test; Moved to 4.3. Tester: Bunyo. Testing ongoing.
CAS-6121 (Jan): sdgrid: 4.3 item. Latitude value in resulting scantable is reversed. Under Test. Tester: Patricio Nunez (was Shinya). Testing ongoing.
CAS-6346: sdimaging creates a blank image if one of the correlations is flagged. Under Test in casapy-test/new-style stable package. Tester: Bunyo
CAS-7007: f you import only one scan of an ALMA ASDM with importasdm, you can't plot anything in plotms. Input Required. 4.3 item. Fix put in for crazy corner case (trunk: r31483; Release 4.3: r31484). Tester; Todd. Question: Shouldn't this be set to "Ready To Test"?
CAS-5597: CRTF doco improvements. Input Required. Discussion ongoing between Juergen and developer. 4.3 item Mark R. to ping developer about this.
CAS-5334 (Feb): Ellipse regions have wrong width (RA). Second fix committed. Was previously tested in casapy-test (r29326), set to Input Required for input from developer. Tester: Paul. Provisionally pushed back to 4.4.
CAS-6823 Memory consumption in wvrgcal seems large. Ticket with Lindsey. Probably 4.4+ at this point?
CAS-5785 (May 2014): drastic split speed discrepancies depending on whether spw is set or not. Input Required. Ticket back with reporter for more info. Known behavior for MSSelection. Some discussion of this item and related topics: split with spw (see also CAS-3666 below). It would be good to be able to select by spw on a large dataset. Will MSTransform have the same problem? Do MMSs help here? Also, Justo's note on this implies that this is a known issue with MSSelection (and not a split problem), but doesn't actually indicate if this is a known issue to be addressed or a known issue that we have to document and just live with. (Steve would also like to be able to do spw selection in asdm2ms - there may well be a separate ticket for this). 4.4+ item.
CAS-3116 (Jun): Comprehensive computation of spectral index from image(s). Long history of testing this for the VLA. ALMA was holding off on testing this for now, pending the VLA testing. Some testing done, problems still found. Had been bumped to 4.3, now pushed back to 4.4. Tester: Kristina (in discussion with Laura). Jeff had agreed look at this with Kristina to get a better handle on how to go forward with this, which may result in more related tickets being spawned. Set to Input required for comments from Steve, since it sounds like the tester and developer are at a bit of an impasse.
CAS-4735 (Nov): imsmooth needs additional option for single dish use. Subtask of CAS-5844 (above). Open again. Tester: Tsuyoshi. Critical item. Code committed to trunk. 4.3 item. Some testing done, mostly works as intended. Input Required from Crystal for some remaining changes. Any remaining future work will have to be for 4.4+.
CAS-3335 (May 2014): parallelized gaincal fails when trying to create scratch columns. Input Required from Claire (since May). For version 4.4+ now.
CAS-5162 (Sep 2013): Improvements in flagging documentation and examples. Input Required from Science (via Jeff). This ticket has been left untouched since May 2013... Version 4.4+.
CAS-4538: migrate imfit input estimates from file to input parameters. Input Required (was "On Hold"). Subtask of CAS-6124. Ticket passed to Juergen, pending a CSSC discussion of what needs to be done and a scheduling of the work. Pushed back to 4.4.
CAS-6234: imfit estimates should allow sky coordinates in addition to pixel values. Input Required (was "On Hold"). Subtask of CAS-6124. Ticket with Juergen, pending a CSSC discussion of what needs to be done and a scheduling of the work. Pushed back to 4.4.
CAS-5996: immath unit- (and if relevant beam-) awareness. Input Required. Ticket with Juergen, pending a CSSC discussion of what needs to be done. Pushed back to 4.4.
CAS-5488: include beam size in header of SD image. Input Required. Ticket with Cat. EOC will provide input. Pushed back to 4.4.
CAS-1596 (reopened Jun 2014): Add negation (!) to antenna, (spw and field list). Input Required. Passed to Juergen for prioritization. Version 4.4+.
CAS-4748 (Dec 2012): Polarization selection does not select SIGMA. Input Required. Passed to Jeff for prioritization. Version 4.4+.
CAS-5833 (Nov 2013): Enhanced Support for Flagging based on CalTable. Ticket stalled due to lack of requirements; passed to Jeff a long while ago. Version 4.4+.
CAS-5886 (Dec 2013): bizarre clean boxes for large images. Awaiting input from one developer to another. Version 4.4+.
CAS-6175 Plotms-vis-model (minus) normalization (visnorm) in gain,bandpass (seems to be missing now). Ticket with Rob for follow-up. Pushed back to 4.4.
CAS-3614 Calibration and Analysis of Single Dish Polarization. Pushed back to 4.4+. Input from Tsuyoshi requested.
CAS-4349 Amplitude calibration for single dish. Pushed back to 4.4+. Input from Tsuyoshi requested.
CAS-2825 Support for Lissajous mapping. Pushed back to 4.4+. Input from Tsuyoshi requested. Discussion ongoing.
CAS-7020 split() breaks on large dataset. Open. Blocker. Also affects mstransform. Ticket passed to Justo for investigation - ongoing. Still occurring as of 4.4.6-DEV. No solution in sight for this one yet, so it is unlikely to be fixed for the 4.3 release. A short-term workaround would still be welcome, though. It looks like a short-term fix has just been committed for 4.3, and a workaround described for 4.2.2. See the ticket for more details.
PART 2: Items Listed for Informational Purposes (note that these will not normally be specifically discussed during the meeting unless someone raises them)
Unable to Test Items
CAS-5879 include pixel rms in imfit fitting. Open. Blocker. Subtask of CAS-6124. Currently with Claire, but testing has paused, as it has additional dependencies (e.g. CAS-3476). 4.3 item. Where are we on this? It's currently listed as a 4.3 Blocker item.Tested by Brian M. and found to work - resolved as fixed.
CAS-2988 (May): Make importasdm and MeasTable work with the JPL Horizon ephemerides for solar system objects via the "COMET" mechanism of Measures. Currently Under Test in 4.3. Testing so far has shown the issue is with data capturer. Close to done - just awaiting a suitable Ephemeris dataset for a final test. Tester: Dirk.
CAS-6433 (Apr): Implement a function to derive Jy/K factor from amplitude calibrator observation. Open. Currently with developer. Targeted for November 23rd Pipeline release.
CAS-4469 (Jun+ 2013): Split with channel averaging is creating spurious spectral features and weight is wrong when there has been channel flagging. Subtask of CAS-5245. Had been "On Hold", with Crystal as the tester. This should be addressable as soon as the weights spectrum handling comes online as part of 4.3. Currently set to Open again, and parked with Mark R. for now. It cannot be user tested until weight spectrum is fixed. Are we getting close to having to think about this one again, yet?
CAS-5084 (May): Testing multi-term support in pclean. Lots of feedback supplied by Kristina and Claire. On Hold (since August 2013) and assigned to Kumar pending class refactoring. To be left on hold, pending the refactored imager classes.
CAS-6232 (Mar): writing version numbers in GUIs. Under Test in 4.3. Most recent commit to trunk was r29373. Tester: Juergen. However, this also needs to be checked in the table browser, the work on which is currently unscheduled.
CAS-5844(Dec 2013): 4.3 imsmooth specification and testing targets. Container ticket only - see its subtasks (including CAS-4735 which is "ARTT"). Currently "Open" and assigned to developer. To be resolved when all subtasks are done (one of which is now a 4.4 item...).
CAS-5379 - Subtle inconsistencies with other programs in Galactic Coordinates (Adam and Harvey). In a nutshell, shifts of ~0.2" are seen when taking data into other packages (e.g. DS9, IDL which both seem to agree with each other). It is unclear yet if this is an incorrect implementation in one or more packages, or possibly just a precision error. This is a subtle issue, and was pushed back to 4.3. Ticket stalled. Needs to be looked at by someone with lots of time. To be left as-is for now. This needs significant work, including new science papers on how to actually define the Galactic coordinate system? Needs casacore discussion; this can be part of that. Passed to Jeff for now. Pushed back to 4.4 (at the earliest).
CAS-4636 (Oct 2012): Elevation dependent opacity application w/ Tsys. Still awaiting input from Science. Had been "On Hold" since August, awaiting data. Switched to Input Required and passed to Crystal for comment. Bumped back to 4.4+. Work on this is "Unscheduled" until further notice.
CAS-5806 Mathematical prediction of post-gridding single dish beam. Formerly a 4.3+ Blocker, now "Critical". Developer has done some modelling, but... ? This is a "blocker of a different kind..." High priority (blocking further development). Currently Open. Crystal and Kumar had been in discussion, but this ticket has been quiet since (effectively) December. Effectively a 4.4+ item now.
CAS-6243: sdimaging does not accept type numpy.string_ for fieldid. Unscheduled, pending identification of a suitable example case. Commit was r29988. Discussion ongoing. Pushed back to 4.4(+). Tester: Todd.
CAS-4592: plotms on 10.7 issues. Half fixed due to Qt updates. Was "ARTT" in 4.2.1 and 4.2.2 pre-release. Unscheduled now, pending availability of a 10.8 Mac for the developer. Tester: Nathan
Upcoming Ready to (Re)Test Items
Not Yet Assigned To Testers
CAS-7046: plotms shows flagged data whenever flaggedsymbolshape is not 'nosymbol' even if customflaggedsymbol=False. Ready To Test in 4.3 (r31428 in trunk and 31430 in release), pending a suitable testing package. Tester: TBD (DA?) Tested by Sarah following the meeting and resolved as fixed.
