GSoC Weekly Check-In #3

Published: 07/07/2021

Hello Everyone!

The first phase of this year's GSoC program is approaching its end with the first evaluation next week and I am trying my best to finalize the implementation of the MIME sniffing library with proper development as well as testing.

What did you do this week?

I have implemented the section 7 "Determining the computed mime type of a resource". This section covers the main sniffing functions for the library including different sniffing rules like "Identifying a resource with an unknown MIME type", "Sniffing a mislabeled binary resource", "Sniffing a mislabeled RSS XML feed".

What is coming up next?

This week I will apply the testing to section 7 covering all possible test cases to get 100% coverage. Also, I will start to integrate my library as soon as possible once the library is finalized

Did you get stuck anywhere?

Section 7.3 i.e "Sniffing a mislabeled RSS XML feed" was a bit confusing and complicated because of the way standards represent its pseudocode but mentors were there to help me with that. Other than this there were no major problems last week.
