Taking the left fork

Filed under: Planning — Upthorn @ 2:03 am

Of my initial project (16-bit support), all that remains to be done is to document the API on the wiki. My mentor, Sev has requested of me that I move on to improving the keymapper, which he sees as a much higher priority than scaler and backend support for 24 or 32 bit color formats.

I agree with that assessment, and I can’t really say I was looking forward to upgrading the scalers.

In light of this, I am providing a new planned timeline:

Optimistic:

  • Jul 5th – Jul 6th: Fully document the API in this blog, doxygen, and wiki.
  • Jul 7th – Jul 10th: Midterm evaluation for google, and any finishing touches necessary for the API docs.
  • Jul 11th – Jul 13th: Begin research on the keymapper
  • Jul 14th – Jul 28th: The vacation I mentioned in my application, possibly continue research on the keymapper.
  • Jul 29th –  Aug 5th: Design and implement the requested enhancements.
  • Aug 6th – Aug 17th: Improve scalers, gui, and SDL backend to support 24 and 32 bit pixel formats, if time permits.

Pessimistic:

  • Jul 5th – Jul 11th: Fully document the API in this blog, doxygen, and wiki.
  • Jul 12th – Jul 13th: Last minute midterm evaluation for google, and a round of Q&A to finish the API docs.
  • Jul 14th – Jul 28th: The vacation I mentioned in my application, begin research on the keymapper.
  • Jul 29th –  Aug 17th: Design and implement the requested keymapper enhancements.

  3. I’m wondering about some points on your schedule:

    “Jul 7th – Jul 10th: Midterm evaluation for google, and any finishing touches necessary for the API docs.”

    I hope you know that for midterm only the work till Jul 6th will be evaluated, thus those API touches won’t be taken into consideration. (I doubt that will make any difference for the outcome of your project though ;-)
