Status Reports – September 14, 2012

Here’s the first batch of status reports from our Fall UCOSP students:

Sampson Chen

Currently
  • Pretty busy, haven’t had too much time to sit down and set up yet – will be doing this today.
  • Running a dual-boot between Windows and Ubuntu with Wubi.
  • Django and Git are installed and functional (was using them for another project)
  • Working on installing an instance of Review Board today.
Roadblocks
  • Been really busy lately
Next
  • I’ll be sitting down with Aamir today and we’re going to try to fix a bug together. We’ll be familiarizing ourselves with Review Board’s API and architecture, and coming up with questions for the meeting.
Questions
  • What will our projects be?

Michelle Chuang

Currently
  • Getting Linux set up with VirtualBox and setting up my dev environment. Reading the Review Board documentation.
Roadblocks
  • None.
Next
  • Diving into the code and going through the issues list to see if there’s anything that could help serve as a stepping stone to familiarizing myself with the codebase.
Questions
  • What will we be doing at the code sprint?

Wesley Ellis

Currently
  • Trying to find out what to work on and finding my way around the code base
Roadblocks
  • Not having a clear idea of what to tackle
Next
  • Comb through the bug tracker to see if I can get some code committed
Questions
  • Could you give us a brief walk through of the code submission process?

Karl Leuschen

Currently
  • So far, I’ve gotten my development environment up and running, without too much trouble, and I’ve poked around the RB and djblets source.
Roadblocks
  • None
Next
  • I’d like to work through a post-commit workflow (on my local instance of the app, using a personal project as an example) and then use a few of Review Board’s open issues as a starting point to get a better look at the code base.
Questions
  • During installation of Review Board’s dependencies, I noticed easy_install is preferred to pip. Having only ever used pip and easy_install, and having never packaged something for distribution, I wondered why easy_install is the go-to in the case of djblets and RBTools. If the answer is complicated, I’d be happy to read any docs and/or source that would reveal the answer.

Aamir Mansoor

Currently
  • Settling in to new place / office. Haven’t really had time to dig in yet.
  • I’ll be sitting down with Sampson today to get into the codebase.
  • We’ll be trying to fix a minor bug while pair-programming.
Roadblocks
  • None
Next
  • Setting up development environment
  • Going through codebase
  • Fix minor bug
Questions
  • None

Allyshia Sewdat

Currently
  • Development environment is set up
  • Practicing my Python and Django
Roadblocks
  • None, other than finding the next set of tasks
Next
  • Get familiar with the codebase, comb through the issue list and see if I can take a look at a few that look interesting/feasible
Questions
  • What will our deliverables be this semester?

John Sintal

Currently
  • Getting my environment setup
  • Reading up on Git and all the info available on the Review Board documentation

Next
  • Get familiar with the code base and dependencies
  • Not send out my status report so late
Questions
  • Will we receive a guideline highlighting the deliverables expected from us and how those deliverables translate to the evaluation we receive at the end of the term?

Jesus Zambrano
