AIPS++ Change Proposals

Joe McMullin, AIPS++ Project Manager
Master URL:
AIPS++ manages changes via change proposals. Before a substantial change is made, a change proposal must be submitted and accepted. A Czar is appointed by the Project Manager to oversee this process for particular areas. A proposal is submitted to the Czar. If the Czar decides that the proposal has merit then the message is sent to the relevant aips2 exploders for discussion. Notice that a proposal has been issued is also sent to aips2-workers. A template for a change proposal is available and further explains the procedure.

The Czars are:
