  • This week
    • Changed the seed so A2 has a flexible scheme and some submissions. Also, discovered an interesting bug: if you change an assignment that isn’t due yet to a due date in the past, collecting submissions breaks. Completed issue 2030. Found that reordering works on assignment criteria, but was still broken on annotation categories, so I rejiggered things to work there
  • Next week
    • The only issue currently assigned to me is 2087, so that’s on the list.
    • I’ll also be asking for some more tickets during the meeting.

  • Next week
