A summary of work I've done at the Space Telescope Institute.

Setting Up

I started to set up the code to do the python 3 regression tests.

Review Mode

I reviewed the regression tests and didn't find any new problems. I went back to testing the pysynphot code. More extensive tests will have to wayt for the python 3 regression test pipeline.

I finished the conversion of stsci.stimage by converting the C code to use new style classes.

Chipping Away

I fixed a bad import in stsci.tools and continued working on converting stsci.stimage.

Bug Squashing

Tried again to modify py_geomap so that it creates a new style Python class instead of the existing old style class. Still don't understand all the issues. I took the regression test report and looked for bugs in the python 3 conversion. I found one in drizzlepac. The other bugs reported don't seem to be related to my work.

Next Phase

I finished converting all the code under stsci_python. Today I ooked at the regression test output and used that to locate errors where I could.

Still trying to resolve all the porting issues with pydrizzle.

Closing In

I'm still working on the second pass. There was a folder under pydrizzle that I missed converting and it's giving me headaches.

Second Lap

I'm about half way through the double check of the python conversion. No problems except with the C code of stsci.stimage.

First Lap

I finished converting the code to run under python 2 and 3. I am now going back to do a double check and commit what hasn't been committed.
