Science Program/PFT/eNews. The science program has been published and the eNews article sent. The PFT had some issues with the database mirror but once fixed the 15B proposals were visible. Sponsored proposals need to be pushed to the PST and PFT. There are 11 VLBA (SHAO) and 1 GBT (NanoGrav). RickLively will look into doing this by script or manually. One GMVA proposal was not transferred but this was by design since it did not have any US antennas and therefore did not go through our TAC.
Call for Proposals. The CfP is 1 July and we need to finalize the text by COB on 29 June. VLA/VLBA edits are in good shape.
PST Testing. DanaBalser has tested and signed off on 5 tickets; there are 4 tickets that are almost ready; one has not been tested (EVL-2956); and one has not been released for testing (EVL-2849). JenPlank and RickLively will release most items today and we will open the PST up for general testing. One extra item is to remove the VLA hybrid configurations. We will not be able to fix copied proposals this semester.
PST Review Requirements. JenPlank and RickLively have not estimated resource effort yet. We really want to complete EVL-3030 and EVL-3026. We need to balance these with PHT needs.
PHT Status. BarryClark and GustaafVanMoorsel will review the various JIRA tickets (including bugs discovered in 15B) to prioritize these items.
External Tools. There is one bug in the VLA exposure calculator that has been difficult to fix. No updates for the GBT sensitivity calculator or GOST.
SRP Recruiting. There are 6 (maybe 7) vacancies. MarkClaussen has filled 2 of 4 in Galactic with solicitations out for the others. JayLockman has taken over for DavidFrayer with 2 vacancies in extragalactic.
TAC Recruiting. TimBastian has filled 2 of 3 vacancies with a solicitation out for the remaining slot.
