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

Mostly worked on leak/refcount/malloc bugs this month.

Over the first 34 weeks I have now averaged about 14 hours per week,
less than the nominal 20. I have used up approx 93% of the hours
allocated to the grant.
Report for period 2010/10/01 to 2010/10/31 inclusive
