Hi John,

Thanks for your email.
1) First I had a older version of swarp (2.15.6 instead of 2.16.0) so I 
installed the version 2.16.0 (at  least locally!)
There are actually 2 more recents version i.e.:

-  /07/18/2007/: Version *2.16.4* fixes more bugs 
<ftp://ftp.iap.fr/pub/from_users/bertin/swarp/ChangeLog> and computes 
output saturation level.
-  /06/08/2007/: Version *2.16.3* fixes a bunch of bugs and adds support 
for image lists.
When do we update? could you please send a email on the issues list when 
we have to upgrade external softwares?

2) There is a discrepancy between the AWBASE version and the TEST 
version of aw for the dependency test which I don't understand because I 
don't change the swarp version in the mean time.
and one complains, the other doesnot.
I run the dependency test for both version:
env database_engine= awe /user2/heraud/opipe/astro/test/dependency_test.py
a) for the test version I get:
usno.astro-wise.org 5556
FAIL: Test versions of external programs
Traceback (most recent call last):
 File "/user2/heraud/opipe_test/astro/test/dependency_test.py", line 
143, in test_versions
   self.failUnless(version.startswith(expected_version), 'Expected %s 
version %s, got %s' % (program_name, expected_version, version))
 File "unittest.py", line 278, in failUnless
   if not expr: raise self.failureException, msg
AssertionError: Expected swarp version 2.16.0, got 2.15.6

Ran 5 tests in 2.090s

FAILED (failures=1)

b) for the awbase version I get no problems:
usno.astro-wise.org 5556
Ran 4 tests in 0.395s

my local version is :
swarp -v
SWarp version 2.16.0 (2007-09-13)

But this error comes back later in the AWBASE version with:
env database_engine= awe ${AWEPIPE}/astro/test/processing/Swarp_test.py
AssertionError: Incorrect SWarp version. Expected version string to 
start with "SWarp version 2.16.0", found "SWarp version 2.15.6 
and I want to solve this before running the other tests.
Can you explain this difference?
It looks like the version of swarp used by  AW in Bonn is 2.15.6 instead 
of 2.16.0 but for some reasons the awbase version does NOT detect this 
old version at the dependency_test.py but it causes
problems later...
