Summer of Code
June is the last month before summer holidays, and at this phase in my
study, courses take a lot of time: practical assignments, seminars to
give, multiple exams. And mid-June, I'll be attending DebConf in
Edinburgh, including delivering a talk about Mole, the subject of
my Google Summer of Code project.
In the period of April/May students participating in the Summer of
Code project had the time to get more familiar with the project they
were going to work for. Because I'm already somewhat familiar with
Debian, I opted to organize an Etch release party together with
some friends, because, well, what better way is there to get to know
During the past two weeks I've been really starting with the project.
I updated the wiki page, added a new development page where I
keep track of my work - listing the subtasks I'm working on and their
status. The first month will be mostly work on the internals, but
starting with the second month I'll also be working on the web
interface, meaning that there should be some stuff to show off.
At the moment I'm refactoring some bits of Mole that are currently
implemented in a hacky way, in order to make it all as extensible as
it should be. This includes defining a config file format for mole
tables, so that it's no longer necessary to modify the python code for
new tables. It also involves some better way of stacking tables to
each other, so that the package file extraction code can be moved away
from the core of mole into a separate worker - to keep mole itself
pure and simple - and generally applicable.
I'll post irregular updates to my blog. I'm looking forward to
seeing a lot of you again this Thursday, when I'll arrive in EDI!
