Handling of unused sources, resources and groups with the same names.

NRAO Interactive Services Modification Request 1C108, November 2007

1. Introduction

During the Oct 2007 deadline it was noticed that unused sources and resources appeared in the printouts.

2. Background

Per jmangum - When I print a proposal, which presume is also what is sent to the TAC, it shows all sources and resources defined, independent of whether they are actually used or not. Since there may be cases where a resource or source is defined but not used (both intensional and unintensional), it might be useful to warn users when a resource or source is defined but not used in a session. Perhaps also resources and sources not used in a session should also not be sent off to the TAC with the proposal?

Per Dana - On the Sources Page I noticed that there can be multiple source groups with the same name. For example, see VLA/08A-191. There are several groups with the name: RSCVn. S
