Guide on Reporting Percentage Completed:

For software development tasks:

  • use 0% if the solution is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the solution's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the solution is implemented and tested within the Ticket branch;
  • use 75% if the implementation review is complete, the Ticket branch has been merged onto the Trunk branch, and the Ticket is closed.
  • use 100% if the affected Trunk packages are tagged and released.

For level of effort tasks, use % of effort expended rounded to nearest 5%:

For other tasks, still use these increments, but apply their meaning as best as possible:

  • use 0% if the deliverable is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the deliverable's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the deliverable is implemented awaiting review/approval;
  • use 75% if the deliverable has been reviewed and in revision;
  • use 100% if the deliverable is approved and posted to appropriate repository.

Note: Please place an asterisk (*) after the percent if you updated this value in this report.

Complete JobOffice? implementation to allow integration of Source Association 9/2/10 10/22/10 Plante Ray[50%] 100% This capability was integrated; however, it was not used in PT1.1.(due to Source Association constraints); thus, I can't claim it is fully validated. 01/25/11

Pass through comments in FITS headers 10/20/10 11/2/10 Lim KT[25%] 0% Some design done, unclear if this will make PT1.1. Requires changes to afw, exposure, persistence of them. Also would implement preserving header order with this. Sun 10/10/10

Production Runs Daues Greg
App debug/practice runs on lsst with ImSim data 10/20/10 11/2/10 Daues Greg[10%] 0% NA
Abe runs with ImSim data subsets 11/5/10 11/18/10 Daues Greg[50%] 100% A practice run has processed Imsim visit v85661762-fr (189 CCDs) using the 4.1.0.x software stack with no reported errors/exceptions. A 6-visit run will be initiated after Apps updates in response to the 1-visit run are complete. Want to freeze stack on 11/1/10, will do a series of runs between now and then. Want 3-day turn-around on fixes.

2000 Series runs of 441 ImSim visits completed and archived.

Data Analysis Axelrod Tim
DM Scientist/Engineer? data analysis 10/20/10 11/2/10 Axelrod Tim[50%],Lupton Robert[50%],Bosch Jim[50%],Becker Andy[50%],Van Dyk Schuyler[25%],Shaw Dick[50%] 75% Analyzed photometric quality of PT1.1 runs, and determined that per-ccd zeropoints were inaccurate. Implemented an "afterburner" code to correct this problem, and applied it to the rplante_DC3b_u_pt11final database. Calibrated photometry for the majority of objects now stable in time to roughly 0.02 mag, but there are significant outliers. Both photometric and astrometric performance analysis included in Data Challenge Handbook. 1/24/11
