GSoC Midterm Roundup
That's it. The midterm evaluation week is gone (actually, there are a few hours left, but it's gone for me, at least).
I'm writing this up while I wait for my Univ's restaurant to open and it's quite cold here - I'd usually like it if it weren't for my lack of sleep (too-much-coffe), I guess.
So far I've been on schedule, even though I feel like I could be way ahead of it if it weren't for some unexpected issues that came up.
Well, the Bugzilla back-end has progressed little since last week: it's feature complete, but it needs a log-in mechanism which is on the way as I discuss with Martin Pitt the best way to do it. PyBugz is going steady, I've a new feature for reading cookies from the most common browsers (Firefox and Chrome at the time being) uncomitted yet - What worries me is the lack of response from PyBugz maintainer/author.
On to following my schedule for the last term, I've began mocking up (on paper) some user interfaces for the stand-alone bug reporting tool, which will probably use PyBugz and maybe fire-up apport when the user is reporting an application crash. I still haven't decided which way to go: power or simplicity. The best would be to put both together but it is quite hard to think of an intuitive user interface being a command-line addict myself.
As always, I'll end promising to post more frequently, but I can't promise to keep my promise :)
