Code Sprint Results

Rik-4
July 16th, 2011

Wow!  We began somewhat slowly--this was our first sprint ever after
all--but really picked up speed.  By the end we were checking in something
every few minutes.  Along the way we also found some interesting errors in
quadl() and the implementation of permutation matrices.  In total, 106
files were taken care of.  Excellent.

Thanks for the update.

In what release of Octave and/or its forge are we going to see the bug
fixes and what is the tentative date for the release(s) ?

Thanks,
  Sergei.

We haven't started thinking of a 3.6 release date yet, but we might
have a 3.4.3 bugfix release soon, in a few months. There were only a
few bugfixes during the code sprint; it was mostly about writing tests
and socialising in chat. Except for one mistaken commit, the commits
were all on the default development branch, so they won't be seen
until 3.6 (they're mostly of developer interest anyways, since end
users don't generally run the test suite).

The code sprint by numbers:

Changesets committed: 68

Files touched  (including renames): 144

Tests written (including plot demos): 447

People who committed csets: 8

First-time committers: 4

Time spent coding: 9 hours, 10 minutes

Minimum wait between csets during the sprint: 5 seconds
             (between 979b1a518812 and 7fce673b934a)

Approximate number of chat lines in #octave: 1200

Max number of users in #octave during the session: 41

Octave bugs detected while writing tests: 3

Octave bugs fixed during the sprint: 2

All in all, I think this was quite successful, even if we didn't get
to our goal of 150 files with tests. Congratulations to Andriy
Shinkarchuck, David Wells, Sean Young, and Giles Anderson who
contributed their first Octave patches during the sprint.

That was fun. We need to do this again in the near future. Maybe we
can make it a monthly thing. :-) But I really wouldn't want to wait
more than two months before the next sprint.

Happy hacking,
- Jordi G. H.

My mentors in VLSI design taught me that bug fixes have higher priority
than new features, and I totally agree with them.

Thanks,
  Sergei.

Right!  But, as a teacher and implementer of VLSI, they should
also have reminded you that bug fixes  have bugs!  It would be
very useful if there were an effective DRC for software.

In any case, the code sprint seems to have been a great success.
Keep up the good work!

Michael

grep 'warning:' make.log | wc - l

seems to be a pretty good poor man's DRC.

I am using version 9.1 and I am trying to figure out a better way to do test item analysis for our tests.  We always randomize the test questions, though we do not use pools. I know that in the grade center, there is a drop down with options to view test results.  However, what I need to be able to do is to see not all only of the results, but a better way to see who answered what question in what way.  http://methoo.com
