==== Report for the week of 3/25 ====
 * Mark and Fabian helped Fujii-kun with PR2. The problem turned out to be two broken flags. Hirata-san drew up a design for a jig to help reglue the flags in situ.
 * Fabian documented the height budget for the Type B suspension in the wiki ([[KAGRA/Subgroups/VIS/OpsManual/TypeB/SR3Data]] etc).
 * Terrence wrote up the final version of his OL diagonalization scheme.
 * Terrence worked on L2P decoupling for the TM.
 * Terrence and Mark edited the Type B Guardian to turn on the payload damping later in the sequence, after IP and GAS, to help ensure that the OSEMs are not touching by the time they're needed (which can happen if the BF is buoyancy compensated for vacuum but the suspension is vented).
 * Mark started on a big tidy-up of the cleanbooth.
 * Mark asked LIGO colleagues about use-by dates for EP30-2. Masterbond says it's good for 6 months in cartridge form and 12 months in jar form (although presumably only if the jars are not opened). If it's too old it may remain tacky after curing. The batch that Type B has was manufactured 2017-11-02 and KEK has a batch from early 2018.
==== Report for the week of 4/8 ====
 * Support of Type Bp
  * Mark made lots of Guardian improvements:
   * Used Guardian's timer functionality to drastically reduce the number of notifications during ramping.
   * Added new requestable states DCCTRL_ONLY and NEUTRAL (and associated transitional states) to facilitate testing.
   * Tidied up the code to use tabs consistently throughout for indentation.
   * Disabled the test for the IM-H coil driver WD (to work around the fact that only the relay in the chassis has been disabled, not the WD signals going to the BIO).
 * We opened the BS tank lid and offloaded a large IM-Y offset to F0-Y with manual adjustment of the broken yaw mechanism).
 * We opened the SR2 side doors and adjusted the V1 OSEM to mid-range.
 * Mark offloaded a large SR2 IM-Y offset to F0-Y.
 * Mark did health checks for BS, SR2 and SR3.
 * Fabian offloaded yaw from SRM and did the SRM health check.
 * Fabian updated the Python code for the stepper driver MEDM screen to reflect that two stepper drivers have different mappings to work around dead channels.
 * Fabian monitored pumpdown on Friday afternoon and will continue on Saturday.

 * Work with Lucia to do blending of the IP LVDTs and geophones.
 * More Guardian improvements.
  * Update vistools.py (formerly LIGO sustools.py) for Type B and KAGRA, and have the TYPEB.py Guardian use it where appropriate.
  * Modify RT models and/or Guardian to revert to the SAFE state under control in all but the most extreme emergency situations (rather than suddenly shutting off all output).
