CfP. The three calls went out on schedule. There were some minor web page issues with the GBO call that were quickly fixed. During testing of the PST before the release there was an issue with the GMVA that was discovered involving the "Calc Min/Max GST" button. When editing a Session for the first time the button and text was not present. RickLively investigated and this revealed another issue that also effected the VLBA. If the Calc Min/Max GST button was clicked during the first edit it would zero out the min and max GST values. Both of these were fixed and have been released to production.
AAS Poster. ToneyMinter reported that he was printing the poster. He will mount this today or tomorrow and deliver it to the booth in person.
Review. DanaBalser and RickLively performed some tests a few weeks ago and iterated on the code. The software is now ready for external tests by the AGN SRP chair. Several actions: (1) DanaBalser and RickLively will continue to test; (2) DanaBalser will ping the external tester again to schedule a time to test the software; (3) RickLively will try to build the new code on webtest so that the external tester will not have to use an NRAO machine; (4) DanaBalser will update the PST review documentation; (5) GarethHunt will work on a script to identify issues with the scores (e.g., inverted or out of bounds). RickLively will also release the fix to the bug that allowed "9,3" to be entered and saved as "93.0". ToneyMinter suggested we send a single purpose email about these changes to the reviewers.
Session-less. The plan is to discuss the Session-less PST at the January 18 TTA meeting. Please send DanaBalser any additional feedback. JamesSheckard has made progress on connected resources and VLA sub-arrays and will release this to the test version.
SRP Recruitment. DanaBalser reported via MarkClaussen that he has the following vacancies: 2 EGS, 2 supplemental AGN, and 1 ISM. He has invitations out to all five. AmyMioduszewski reported that she has 1 SFM vacancy. She has an invitation out and may need more candidates since she has only one more on her candidate list. DanaBalser reported that BrianMason has completed his recruitment.
AAS NRAO Town Hall. LewisBall reported that he has given TonyBeasley two slides for the AAS NRAO town hall meeting for X-proposals and volunteer reviewers.
TTA Meeting. No meeting next week (11 January). The next meeting will be in two weeks (18 January) where we will discuss the Session-less PST.
