      • convolved galaxy models
      • multiple image fitting
      • optimize
      • multiple threads
      • check / update strail code
      • S/N clip for residual images
      • more testing on pmFootprints
      • more testing of ApResid? stability
      • are magnitudes being correctly measured, given residual table?
      • use Nth order polynomial to model peak / integrated flux relationship?
      • track sigma(photon) vs sigma(systematics)
  • psAstro
    • additional Q/A for fits
    • is clipping statistic OK?
    • track sigma(photon) vs sigma(systematics)
    • optional choice of ref filter
  • ppNorm?
  • ppStats?
  • pswarp?
    • add code for inScale very different from outScale
    • use psf model in interpolation
  • ppStac?
    • investigate alternative weighting options
    • better use of psModules code
    • integrate with psphot
  • poisub?
    • integrate with psphot

there is a problem with output log files. nebulous requires files to be newly created for write or opened only for read. it does not do a good job of handling the 'append' concept. However, log files should be appended rather than newly created for each step.

  • DVO
    • general
      • image table index / cache
      • generate IDs for detection, object, image
      • extended source tables
      • detection labels (keys to table of labels, eg "Taurus", "Landolt 1991")
      • additional object parameters (MK, Teff, Av, z, others?)
      • link to images via image index
    • addstar
      • ref needs per-object time
    • relphot
      • merge / finish grid / chip-color fits
      • use stellar locus position instead of colors?
      • complete zero-point pipeline, photcode table updates
      • colorterm vs mosaic X,Y?
    • relastro
      • finish / test image parameter fitting
      • test parallax fits
      • images vs video stars
      • add weights by photcode
      • include DCR corrections
      • include aberration / precession terms
  • IPP Infrastructure
    • PanTasks
      • delete task / job
      • flush queue of local jobs
      • test client/server version of code
    • Nebulous
      • machine recovery process
      • web-based status display
      • add host/chip relationship (in camera.config?)
    • glueforge?
    • accounts
    • error codes
  • IPP Libraries

      • full implementation for chebychev polynomials
      • automatic fit order adjustment for polynomials
      • consistent allowed characters for MD keys in psLib and perl parser
      • mask value registration
    • psModules?
      • allow undefined recipe blocks at camera level (eg, PPIMAGE_J1)
      • abstraction of data sources (defined in site) in camera-level recipes
      • invert order in FILTER.ID: interval == external, not vice versa
    • IPP Perl Modules?
