  • 17B
    • TAC Meeting Postmortem. No major issues at the TAC meeting. DanaBalser reviewed the items discussed during the TAC postmortem. The main issue was how to deal with the SRP balance problems and feedback from adding reviewers to AGN and ETP.
    • PHT. Four items for 17B.
      1. Directors' CSV File. The problem with duplicate proposals was fixed. There still is an issue with the requested time which is listed as zero. Currently the A, B, C, and N time are added to get the requested time for the report which is the requested time in 17B. Probably best to use the requested time from the proposers. MarkClaussen will see what is done for the VLBA. The GBT reports the time requested from the authors.
      2. Science Program. RickLively thinks the bug in the Science program may be fixed already; he will check.
      3. Public Bit. RickLively updated the code to make this work automatically; if this fails we can revert to running the script as in the past.
      4. PHT-->GB PHT Ping. RickLively will update the code to turn off the ping from the PHT-->GB PHT which is no longer used.
    • Directors' Review.
      • GBT. ToneyMinter reported that he will be late with info due to changes in the Sponsored time and some issues with the GB PHT. He will try to get this done before the Directors' review.
      • VLBA. MarkClaussen reported that he will try to have this done by Friday.
      • VLA. AmyMioduszewski and BarryClark have provided all info.
      • Joint External Proposals. GarethHunt provided info on joint external proposals.
  • 18A
    • PST Status. The plan is for an initial release on 15 May and a general release on 1 June.
  • AOB
    • Reviewers. MarkClaussen noted that we need to start the 18A recruitment soon. Issues that need to be resolved.
      1. Converge on any changes to the review process (e.g., are we adding reviewers to SRPs).
      2. Need to replace three TAC members. Will these be taken from current SRPs?
      3. Need to replace DavidFrayer and check if JayLockman will continue.
    • TTA Updates in 18A. GarethHunt noted that we need to converge sooner than later on any plan to change the review system in 18A. This is true for big changes and RickLively noted a three month planning period. Some ideas on how to update the TTA process are here:
