Use the order as a guideline in order to determine the relative priority of jobs.

Key for the "Task Status" column:
  • DONE (%Y%) means the task has been successfully completed
  • MOVED TO... (%M%) means the task has been completed and is awaiting integration tests
  • PICK (%S%) means the task has been completed and is awaiting sponsor tests
  • ALERT! (%X%) means the task will not be completed this cycle, but was expected to be completed
  • ok means that the task is not yet complete or ready for tests, but ALS has evaluated results & progress is clearly on track

Key for the "MR Status" column:
  • DONE (%Y%) means the MR has final sponsor sign-off
  • MOVED TO... (%M%) means the MR is awaiting final sponsor sign-off
  • PICK (%S%) means the MR is being implemented (has CCC approval)
  • ALERT! (%X%) means the MR needs CCC approval
  • REFACTOR (%P%) means the MR is either being written, checked, or needs initial sponsor approval
  • N/A means there is no MR for this task

1. Operational/User Support Items Completed

Operational/User Support items are those things that you didn't expect to do, but had to do anyway, in order to keep things running. For each support item, please list the amount of effort involved as either: low, medium, or high. Guidelines for these rankings are as follows:
  • low - Things that take less than two hours.
  • medium - Things that take more than two hours, but less than eight hours.
  • high - Things that take more than eight hours.

If multiple people are involved in an item, please list it only once. Effort estimates should reflect total time elapsed, i.e. how long did it take to fix the problem start to finish - not the sum total of each person's time.

  • date - name - effort
  • 10 Oct 2007 - PaulMarganian - BOS Transaction floating point error - medium

2. Commitments for Beta Patch 1

The default/unsorted state reflects priority order for this cycle.

expect this result checklist for the viewer and QtClean. I'd like to have a simple checklist of operations I can do to make sure things are OK before releasing for wider testing.

VLA Export -> MS -> UVFITS -> AIPS check
 
We need to check that the right information transfers from VLA data files through the MS, UVFITS, into AIPS as part of the preparation for the EVLA correlator. We need to identify problems and fix the easy ones in preparation for the next development cycle.
