Status:
– Two small pull requests on the Remark Request stuff, 897, 929. I updated an error message and fixed some deprecated code. Now I’m sitting on issue 904 and digging around with no real luck. I spent a few hours on it today and feel like I’m not making progress with it any more.

Next Step:
– Ask for help!

Roadblocks:
– Pride.

Michael Ing
Status:
– Started to updated the documentation for release 1.0. Currently at removing old PDF conversion references.
– Looking into issue 904 to try and give Joel some help.

Next Step:
– Continue updating documentation for the new version of Markus.

Roadblocks:
– A week of bad luck especially with Pointers

Andrey
Status:
– Worked on issue 915, wrote the code for the median into the model. Called it in the controllers, following the average calls. The code does not work, need help!
– Looked into issue 860, tried to make changes in the controller to recognize when the user is an admin. Not much success there. No idea also how to write test cases for it. Dropping issue 860, until issue 915 is done.

Nest step:
– Work on issue 915 with some help.
– Create issues for small stuff in precision in the assignments page.
– Also create an issue for alignment issues in the grading summary before marks are released.

Roadblocks:
– Code does not work XD

Emeric
Status:
– I didn’t have a lot of time to work on Markus (still worked 2 hours on it), I have 4 assignments rush (all due next week)
– Finished refactoring/fixing styles for the Submissions user preferences
– Now ready to create pull request

Next steps:
– Finish working on my blog post (will probably post it tomorrow (Friday))
– Create a pull request for the user preferences in the Submissions view

Roadblocks:
– Assignment rush

Kira
Status:
– Worked on sort by columns in the graders view fixing the code that Severin suggested. At the same time I also ran across the fact that my solution does not work in the student view so I’ve added some code in to prevent the sortable columns to only the ta and admin views.

Next steps:
– Work on some functional and unit tests for the sorting.

Roadblocks:
– May need some help to form test cases.

Joey
Status:
Still trying to finish up removing all of the prototype legacy code, and it should be all complete except that I can’t test the “Flexible Marking” code until that feature is fixed. I have a fix in a different branch, but I’m still waiting for Mikes official fix to get pulled into Master. Fixed up a very small issue with styles on disabled buttons, and am still waiting for that to get pulled in as well.

Next Steps:
Going to have to abandon finishing off the Prototype legacy stuff for now, and will try looking at speeding up the ajax calls on some of the other pages.

Roadblocks:
Again, still waiting for the Flexible Marking fix to go in so I can finish the task I’ve been working on. I’m also working on thinking up something to write about for the blog, and sort of learning towards talking about debugging to some effect. Either some of the features of the Chrome css/javascript debugger, or doing debugging in rails, for anyone who hasn’t used any of these features yet. (I <3 the Chrome Debugger). Ante
– Looked at issue904(remark request: old mark not showing up). I did not encounter it in the demo sandbox but I saw it on my local machine(running ruby 1.8.7). I noticed that all the rubrics and some buttons are in french, is it an issue?

Next Step:
– More investigation/talk to Joel about it.

Roadblocks:
– course load
