TPF Grant April 2010 report
Message ID:
As per my grant conditions, here is a report for the April period.

I continued working my way through the list of tie bugs, then towards the
end of the month, got sucked into spending quite a bit of time on a regexp
bug. I also spent a bit of time revisiting some earlier fixes of mine
where issues showed up once we got 5.12 released and started smoking stuff

Over the first 8 weeks I have now averaged about 18 hours per week,
slightly less than the nominal 20.


Report for period 2010/04/01 to 2010/04/30 inclusive

A major Starfleet emergency breaks out near the Enterprise, but
fortunately some other ships in the area are able to deal with it to
everyone's satisfaction.
