Status S82 (Nawfel)

-  Images which had the grade C were rejected. . Also some 18 images B were rejected. Around 10% of images were rejected (1100 images in total).

-  Still problem with qualityFITS. WCS of images is sometimes wrong in the weight maps. The header is not created correctly for the weight map for certain images. Don't know why.

-  Should take one image and see if can fix this problem. This is a big problem as it can produce weight maps which are very large

-  Patrick already changed from fits2head to dfits to avoid this problem, but it seems that this problem already existed. Need to change the method that the weight map header is generated from the input image.

-  Steps remaining: qualityFITS / scamp / swarp.

PI processing

-  Nawfel has almost finished processing WIRCAM PI data 214 images maybe
-  Pagani data: need to see Pagani: to define final data products

CFHTLS deep re-processing
-  Valerie de L. would like to have a new deep stacks with better sky subtraction. On-going task.

Status VIKING (Patrick)
-  It seems that the request limit is back at 1000 files, so we cannot download the other bands in CFHTLS
