slow going

Filed under: Uncategorized — Upthorn @ 10:01 am

As anyone who’s been following the commit logs can tell, I’m having a lot of difficulty keeping up a good pace of work on the keymapper. The reason for this is that, unlike with my prior project, nearly all the progress I make on this task comes at the expense of code that someone else wrote before, and because I did not get a lot of time to look over it before I started working (which is mostly my own fault), I don’t really understand how it all works together well enough to be certain that the code I’m replacing it with will be better.

As a result, I’m being very hesitant about any changes I make because I always want to be certain I understand what the existing code is doing (and how) before I destroy it to make room for my own.

However, I am still working on the keymapper improvements, and I have no intent of giving up before I’ve finished them, no matter how long I have to keep working on this past the end of this year’s GSoC.
