Re: [visad] VisAD library updated

Dear Tom and others from visAD community,
Thank you very much for fixing also issues which I needed regarding GMS-5 data. 
But I have one question regarding source code in the GitHyb repository.
I had a look at the master branch: https://github.com/visad/visad.git
and there were for example commits: removing of PI, and add real getSubpoint() 
in GOESnav, but there is missing GMS-5 fix in GOESnav (removing of part of the 
code:
if (iarr[n] <= 0)
               throw new IllegalArgumentException("Invalid orbital parameters");
lines 168-173 in GOESnav.java.
So my question is, am I looking at good GitHub repository? 
Because I have made fork of this repository, and now I don't know if it is 
right master branche.
And one more question, can you help me, if I need to merge commits from master 
branch to my fork? It is https://github.com/JanKianicka/visad.git

And one more, third question. I am performing tests with old GOES navigation. 
It works well but is somehow not so stable, sometimes images bumps even 20-30 
pixesl in line/ but mostly in element direction. I am using just the functions 
toLineEle(). But in parent class AREAnav there are also functions 
ImageToAreaCoordinates translations. And when I have tested these, some of 
bumps might correspond to differences in image coordinates. Can not you explain 
me what means Image and AreaFile coordinates in case of satellite data in 
McIDAS AREA format? And LineElement from the functions toLineEle needs some 
additional correction to read navigated data dirrectly from the image matrix?
Thank you very much.
Kind regards
Jan Kianicka
