Status:
– Fixed some little details Severin Gehwolf
– Started looking into user preferences server-side persistence (created an issue for it since I’m not sure I’ll have enough time before the end of the project to finalize it)
– Started looking into the column hiding logic. For the moment the columns are hidden in JavaScript after the table is loaded. It would be better to not display the columns at all when the table is loaded (like Severin Gehwolf pointed out).

Next Steps:
– I’m not sure if we must continue to work on the project or not, but if we do, I’ll try to finalize the column hiding logic before the end of the term.

Roadblocks:
– None

Status:
Spent some time looking at speeding up the users/students table. Right now it takes around 5 seconds, and the culprit is definitely the render_to_string loop, but I’m having trouble figuring out how to get this data rendered otherwise. I’ve gotten the data size down a lot though. I’ll actually update the details on the blog post if anyone is interested.

Next Steps:
I might not be able to make any substantial speed improvements in the time I have left, but I’ll do my best! And I’m still planning on writing up a blog post about debugging in rails, so expect that next week maybe.

Road blocks:
Trouble with the render_to_string slowness, but still investigating.

Andrey
Status:
– Working on my blog post
– About to open some issues, mainly for alignment and rounding.

Next Step:
– Fix the issues opened by me
– Work on my presentation for Dalhousie

Road Blocks:
– About every course I took has something due this Monday.
– Time to work those time management skills.

Michael Ing
Status:
– Updated documentation. Going to submit a pull request
– Looking into issue 904 and created a temp fix for the new Markus Release if needed.
– Fix other issue with Remark Request when changing Marks from Released to Un-Released (Need to do more test before I submit a pull request)
– Updated a failing test case

Next Step:
– Fix failing testcases

Roadblocks:
– Sleep Needed

Ante
Status:
– Got postgresql environment set up and had some understanding of issue904 through the use of debugger and pgAdmin(@submission.result not returning the old result when it should). Still trying to better understand activerecord/relational database to implement Joey’s solution.

Next Step:
– Blog post. Probably have to write something even if I can’t provide a good solution to issue904. Maybe my understanding of the issue will do.

Roadblocks:
– Last assignments of other courses.

Joel
Status:
– Wrote a blog post on bug documentation!

Next Step:
– Hit the books for exams!

Roadblocks:
– I can’t read!

Kira
Status:
– Pushed the issue of sorting and ordering into the query for grades form entries. Fixed some small issues noted in review

Next Step:
– Fix any things coming back from next review of issue 984

Roadblocks:
– None!
