Weekly Blog Post #6 [July 12, 2021]

What did you do this week?

What is coming up next?

  • After receiving feedback on my current changes I will work on any other changes that my mentor(s) might request.
  • Other than that I will also discuss the archive support implementation details with my mentor in the upcoming weekly sync and work on a new PR for the same.
  • I will also work on the Commit Linting Issue's PR to cover more enhancement points depending on the bandwidth I have this week.

Did you get stuck anywhere?

  • Yes and no as well, I took a considerable amount of time in reading the code base in couple of past weeks, to get a good idea of where the renaming is to be done, it is not like find and replace, there are a lot of places where directory property is not even related to a model and thus it was not as simple as it might seem.
  • Making the changes also broke a lot of stuff, almost all model tests and other various seemingly unrelated tests as well. So I was stuck at certain errors in the CI for sometime but eventually I was able to sort all of them out.
  • However, I cannot really say I was stuck all the time in the above listed things, as it was more about understanding and spotting out sources of problems which were causing various tests to fail.
