DATA
_______________________________________________________________________________


2017.0623 TD: get connections working between Yale and CHIRON
   !!!    TD: figure out how to pipeline data routinely
   !!!    ??: re-run RECONS 2016 data through pipeline to get reduced spectra
   !!!    ??: run RECONS 2017 data through pipeline to get reduced spectra
   !!!    ??: figure out how to create nightly schedule 
......... ??: figure out how to post data for users to retrieve
......... ??: investigate pipeline modifications for 2-part ThAr exposures

2017.0531 LP: send data file names to Yale for test dataset
   !!!    LP: run 2017 data through RV pipeline for 3 EVR stars
   !!!    LP: run 2017 data through RV pipeline for 3 COR stars
......... LP: develop tests for ThAr lamp exposure times
......... LP: post examples showing what CHIRON can do in various setups

2017.0624 TH: create 2017 test sample to confirm processing and RV pipelines
......... TH: create 1.5m website in Atlanta

Notes:    **  Yale will do schedule and basic reductions
              extensive documentation available for queue/basic data reductions
              Tolga and Brindis both do queue and reductions
          **  RECONS *may* provide RVs for our setup for all PIs
