Daryn
Status:
– Fixed and Submitted a Review Request for issue #730

Next Steps:
– Looking into issue #688.
– Get feedback from review board, make change and ship issue #730

Road Blocks:
– Discovered another bug while looking at issue #688. Adding criterion for assignments under flexible marking scheme does not work. I will look over the old tickets where one seems to have covered this problem and will request to reopen it.
– Had issue reproducing issue #688. I believe that the bug is fixed already. More investigation is needed to determine if indeed this is still a bug.

Kristian
Status:
– Submitted a Review Request for issue #581.
– Now looking at issue #91

Next Steps:
– Need to investigate issue #91 and try to fix it by end of next week
– Get feedback from review board, make change and ship issue #581

Road Blocks:
– Checking whether an issue has been fixed or not. All issues that have been fixed should be removed from the list of issues page.

Michael
Status:
– Created and worked on issue #741 and submitted a review request.
– Reading up on svnserve to try and get the subversion backend working. I thought I needed it for issue #656, but it turns out the web interface is fine.
– I currently have a temporary fix for issue #656 (Grace Day Bug). However, more investigation is needed to determine if this fix is a proper correct fix or more changes are needed.

Next Steps:
– Continue working to fix issue #656.
– Get feedback from review board, make change and ship issue #729, #741

Road Blocks:
– Like Kristian stated above, there seems to be a fair number of issues that are fix/partly fix/not reproducible on rails 3 that are listed and takes time to determine if the issue still exists.

Jeff
Status:
– Submitted a review request. Investigated some javascript errors found in various pages (the document.on is not a function one). Doesn’t look like it’s something fixable – all you have to do is upgrade to Prototype 1.7 so I suppose it’ll just fix itself.

Next Steps:
– Looking at some inconsistencies with the form javascript. Seeing a lot of errors in javascript console all over the place

Road Blocks:
– I’ve caught the latest version of the flu or whatever. Progress slowed while I sleep 15 hours a day.

Individual Status

  • Daryn: So I’ve pretty much just set up my RoR application on my mac and I’ve looked over the application, played around with the sandbox. Has some issue getting Markus Completely working. The book Daryn used for reference is simply rails 2
  • Kristian: Has been reading RoR tutorials online. im not done setting up the dev environment but i should be able to finish that by Monday. Also, Kristian is getting familiar with Github as well.
  • Jeff: He got the dev environment setup and went through a ruby tutorial and a RoR specific tutorial. Jeff saids he could start working on a ticket but he’ll be slow while figuring out where things are etc.
  • Michael: What I try doing is getting RoR working on Windows. However, I had no luck. As a result, I install it on a virutal box using linux. I have things up and running on linux. I have been play around with it on my own machine. Also, yesterday I briefly looked at the code just to get a feel of it. The book I have been using as a reference is Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial: Learn rails by example by Michael Hartl.
