converting polconvert to python3 in progress and almost complete.
Comprehensive slides available. here
Some discussion around difference between XY and HV only being important for long baselines - hence not properly distinguished in most connected element arrays or software packages.
Can FITS-IDI be modified to allow proper description of mixed pol cases using POLTYP[AB] fields already available in standard? Consult with Eric Greisen.
The main action seems to get Eric G. to accept Leonids proposal. Mark Kettenis is looking at putting polconvert into CASA itself (ie. MS based)

Some discussion on how to get the 4th bullet into the field system…. Should capture 2.5.4 for Bonn and USNO to capture state, at least? Then investigate zoom and verify. DiFX 2.6.3 is (testing aside) ready to go, go ahead and put changes into 2.6. Then test that with zoom Then work on the config fix.
How to fix this in the future. Obviously a set of test data. DiFXdiff should be run on captured data. (Do this at Bonn.) Synthetic data generation for testing. GPU program should provide us with some automated tests.
NA to get the short straw on timezone, ideally held before christmas
