SRP Meetings. DanaBalser, AmyMioduszewski, and MarkClaussen all reported that the SRP meetings went well and that Zoom was easy to use. DanaBalser reported that he is waiting for some feedback from one SRP and then will finalize the reviews.
PST CfP Requirements. LorantSjouwerman led the discussion to prioritize the JIRA tickets for the 21B CfPs. Below they are organized into three categories: Critical, Major, and Minor. There were two metrics tickets that were Out-of-Scope and two that required Further Discussion.
Critical. These tickets should take a total of 5 days (half of our allocated time).
SSA-6461 (3.0d) PST needs a hook for eLWA. EmmanuelMomjian summarized the situation: effectively eLWA has been RSRO for a while now but not included in the PST. We have a commitment to NSF that we will include eLWA and this will be shared risk for 22A, so we should start this semester by including eLWA in the PST.
SSA-6625 (1.0d) PST: 21B - 4 Gbpz at Y1 will be GO. LorantSjouwerman feels this ticket needs to be done.
SSA-6462 (1.0d?) PST 4,4P line and pulsar resource options should be unavailable, Stokes I to GO in 21B. LorantSjouwerman notes this is an old ticket that has been updated and should be a small change; we just need to hide this option.
SSA-6519 (1.0d) GBT Integration Time. DanaBalser notes that his is a bug that has been in the PST for a long time but was never noticed until 21A. We agreed to keep this as major.
SSA-6378 (0.5d) PDF Document Properties. RickLivey notes that this ticket is a research request and we should investigate if this is doable and if so then estimate the effort. DanaBalser suggest we keep this as Major at 0.5 days effort.
SSA-6623 (0.25d) PST: VLBA TJ box removal. We discussed if this ticket should be Major or Minor and agreed to keep this as Major. While mostly cosmetic it does cause confusion and time for our users.
SSA-5363 (1.0d) Add Timeout Warning on TJ Page. There was some discussion about what to do here: timeout warning, autosave, redesign interface, etc. We agreed to keep this as a research request to better characterize the problem and converge on the specific requirements.
SSA-6595 (unkn) PST: something fishy with sessions and resources. See below.
SSA-6131 (unkn) PST session bug. LorantSjouwerman suspects these two tickets are releated. MarkClaussen will review the helpdesk tickets to see if there is sufficient information to reproduce the problem. If so, we have a way forward; otherwise we need to capture better data.
Minor We only had time to discuss the first two items on the list below which LorantSjouwerman felt should be at the top of this list. Folks should review the remaining items and if they disagree with this prioritization they should send an email to the TTA list.
SSA-4614 Add VLA configuration for HSA Proposals. We agreed this would be useful to have both for the proposers and during the review stage. BarryClark suggested doing this with a technical justification textbox but this may not be sufficient. We need to refine the requirments.
SSA-6128 Observer Present for Observations Field is Visible. LorantSjouwerman felt this bug is rather embarrising as an old feature becomes visible so we should just fix it.
SSA-6605 PST: warning when not using Firefox (in particular Safari)
SSA-6594 PST: max to entering TJ ?
SSA-6592 PST: entering TJ sometimes looses text
SSA-6402 Dissertation proposal doesn't match dissertation criteria
SSA-5822 Make "Elevation" and "Season" blank by default in ECT
SSA-5733 GOST 20B bug fix
Tickets with LST/GST/elevation issues and source upload problems
SSA-6631 (unkn) New overhead factors in ECT. LorantSjouwerman suggests we move this ticket from major to critical and that it should only take about 0.25 days effort. We might consider doing SSA-4405 (ECT: Robust Label) at the same time. MarkClaussen and EmmanuelMomjian disagree that this needs to be done at all; we agreed to discuss this offline.
SSA-6593 (unkn) PST: code vs documentation --- this is mostly for Toney to compare PST vs GBT doc. This ticket needs to be updated by ToneyMinter and is here as a reminder. Either ToneyMinter updates the documentation or we update the PST.
Out-of-Scope. Below are two tickets that are currently being worked on and need to be completed by the 21A Directors' review. We agreed that these should not be part of the 21A CfP list. DanaBalser will start a discussion offline to decide on the remaining effort which RickLively will take to the DMS Priortization meeting.
SSA-6336 (unkn) Fix historical PST proposal grades - for metrics
SSA-5384 (0.5d) Add time by priority for GBT proposals to the PST
Proposal Metric Issues. No discussion.
Historical Large/Triggered VLBA Proposals. No discussion.
