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

Not Perfect

I spent the day trying to debug pysynphot. Big problem with the parser.

Unimproved

It turns out the problem with the spectrum parser was that, in part, it was calling string functions instead of methods. But there are other problems with the parser I haven't found yet.

Python testing

I successfully ran the Pandokia tests for pysynphot under both python2 and python3. There is a problem with the scanner introspecting its classes that throws an error under python3.

Double Back

The pysynphot import problem was not solved. I really solved it today (really). I ran the pandokia tests on pysynphot under python2. None errored, but some failed, which I will look at. Tried running the python3 tests, but didn't have pandokia set up correctly.

Progress!

I solved the problem with bilinearinterp and alsp the import problem with pysynphot.

Frustration

Worked on the problem of stsci.imagemanip not finding bilinearinterp when running under Python 3. With no success.

Finished Coding

I finished coding the python 3 changes to pysynphot and I am now debugging.

Back and Forth

There was a bug in stsci.imagemanip. Fixed it, bit the C interface problem canme back. Otherwise I spent the day converting the python code in pysynphot.

On to Synphot

I fixed the last remaining problem with the stsci.* packages and checked it in and moved onto updating the pysynphot package.

Finishung Up

I spent the morning back porting the astropy sphere changes to stsci.sphere and making sure they work. And in the afternoon I double check the stsci packages to make sure they use relative imports where appropriate.
