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

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.

Stuck

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.

Almost There

I converted acstools and costools, now starting the stuff that doesn't need to be converted.

Home Stretch

I finished converting drizzlepac, though I couldn't commit the changes for the usual reasons. I plan to do costools and acstools tomorrow and maybe the leagacy instruments,which would be everything.

Moby Drizzle

I spent the day converting the code in drizzlepac to run under python 2 and 3. Not done yet.

More and Bigger Errors

I spent the day converting the rest of reftools, pyregion, opuscoords, and multidrizzle. I couldn't commit multidrizzle because of the packing loading problems under python 3.
