Additional tasks

From OpenHatch wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This page has curated tasks from previous events, but there are no maintainers for these projects at the event, and less care had been paid to making sure the development environment setup is easy and the tasks are verified.

If you're feeling brave, please do tackle these bugs. Remember:

  • Mentors are here to help you, even if they're not experts on this particular project.
  • Claim the task by putting your name after the task. Please make a new line with a bullet point, so as to minimize the chance of merge conflicts when editing the wiki.
  • Fill out bug reports/"workthrough" sheets for these issues, *especially* if you don't complete them! Or if you're feeling really lazy, you can skip the walkthrough sheets and leave your notes here in the wiki by adding to the bullet point for that task. The key is that you give us feedback on problems you're having with these, so we can fix them for the next person to try.

[edit] BioPython

  • Tasks:
    • Fix how code handles input error so it fails gracefully.: A certain type of invalid input currently causes the software to crash. Search for the problematic code, and fix it "fails gracefully" - that is, outputs an error message instead of crashing the software.
      • Attendee notes:

[edit] d3

  • Tasks:
    • Bug in the bar graph tutorial: Per the ticket, the tutorial is not entirely accurate with the current version of d3. Submit a Github pull request to fix the tutorial.
      • Attendee notes:
    • Unclear wording in bar graph tutorial: Per the ticket, there is a small bit of the tutorial that could be easier to read. Improve it in the way described.
      • Attendee notes:

[edit] FreeNAS

[edit] gimp-web

[edit] MediaGoblin

[edit] Octave

Notes: Warning - setting up a development environment on Windows takes hours, so this is primarily recommended for GNU/Linux and Mac users.

  • Tasks:
    • Fix possible format string bug: A fan of octave automatically checked the source code for format string bugs related to the size of string buffers, and found a probable issue. You should investigate the issue and write on the issue a remark as to if you think the automatic check got it right. Preferably, also submit a patch.
      • Attendee notes:
    • bicubic needs documentation of "spline_alpha" argument: A previous patch changed some code, and was partially applied, but the documentation portion of that patch got dropped by accident. You should find that patch, make sure it still applies to the project, and then submit the part that needs to still be applied.
      • Attendee notes:
    • convn(x,y,"valid") produces results that are different from Matlab: The submitted provided a patch. It is useful to the maintainer if other people indicate that the patch works for them. Additionally, the patch could use unit tests.
      • Attendee notes:

[edit] Pig

  • Tasks:
    • Add more automated tests: Add an automated test showing that when pig stores a DateTime object, the data is saved properly. ("e2e" is short for end-to-end, probably.)
