JSR- Draft agenda coming this week. Cost data to March. DM Cover status to March with loss to efficiency .. will be all week but virtual. Vincent says DOE will not be happy with March data - charge will say is project making progress against plan (pre COVID).
Meetings this week to make progress restarting in Tucson - coordinate with NOIRLab, then readiness review. This is stage 1for Rubin only - does not involved DM people. NOIRLab resistant to restart due to rising cases in Tucson.
Frossie will be added to managers list - can overlap with John.
Wednesday - few emails, managers, PST already sent. How to be supportive while federally allowable. Taking day off is fie - anyone can take the day off. Ranpal will take day off and be avilable for discussions. https://bit.ly/3h0XS7Z
Project meetings - can be cancelled. We can not tell people strike. We can cancel meeting and say “if people wish to come discuss, on their own time,” preferable to use Zoom from a university for such meetings not BJ which is paid from federal funds. However use of tools/laptops etc. can be claimed as personal development and project improvement. CCB at 10am and PST at 14:00 are cancelled. There will be a zoom channel open for discussion at one those times - Ranpal will let us know. "Hear from CCB members outside of AURA on initiatives in their institutions and how well (or not) they have achieved objectives. Output: at least one actionable measurable suggestion to Rubin leadership.” If you as DMLT have internal discussions and would like ot raise potential actions to management this would be a possible forum .
Town Hall proposed - can not be political, needs to be about values of the project. "Open dialog where Leadership and Work Culture Advocates share, reflect and listen to what's on the minds and in the hearts of Rubin staff and community.” Big meetings do not generate interaction .. but it could send the message of openness to dialog.
Concerning the action to discuss "rolling out data products and capabilities to users without having them scoop the project or swamp our resources.” A meeting was held with Bob Blum and Phil Marshall (ops directors) and Frossie Economou, Leanne Guy, John Swinbank and William O’Mullane on 3 June 2020. Various issues were raised such as someone downloading all PVIs and publishing a catalog, an individual wishing to do their own non standard processing which requires a lot of support, someone producing bad products ahead of Rubin and others. The feeling was that the data policy (ls.st/LDO-013) in fact covers all of these issues (bulk download, producing products which should be proprietary etc. ). Bulk download should be under MOU which is not perhaps explicit enough in LDO-013 - Bob Blum will review that.
We discussed that that some of these concerns might be mitigated by publishing single-epoch catalogs from prompt processing; we suggested that this topic could be raised at our next F2F if applicable.
