Previous Actions


Bug fix (critical): PR dxtbx#289 Ensure format instance is cached when first read

Performance: PR dxtbx#279 NeXus: avoid unnecessarily walking the full tree

Housekeeping - not so critical:

Soft-stable master (dials#1560)

The process we agreed in dials#1353 was to go soft-stable master for a month, then reevaluate whether to make it a requirement.

PR dials#1560 changes the contribution guidelines to that effect.

PR dxtbx#287 is a half-move towards stable master in dxtbx.

Outcome: Both can go in.

Drop Python 2 idioms and compatibility fixes (dials#1567)

There is no further benefit to keeping old constructs around, so this pull request cleans out a couple 1000 lines of old code.


dx2 proposal

Conversation on this is still ongoing on the mailing list

dials.index: create new experiments

not discussed in this meeting

dials.index should (or should not) create new experiments with crystals in rather than modifying in place existing experiments as proposed in this issue
