Now, some numbers:
I added 707 test cases in total. I got this number by adding up the results of
the commit messages containing /\d+ test/ (adding a few known misses and only
getting the ones that had a gsoc_spectest).
I made 105 commits to the Pugs repo. Most of these had to do with tests, but
probably 10 dealt with the p6eval IRC bot. Most of my commit messages were
two lines long.
I have a karma of 166 in #perl6 and 18 in #parrot. Useless information, but
most numbers are useless. :)
This image gives some more useful numbers. This is the result of the
spectest_regression graph (courtesy of pmichaud++ and moritz++), from May
26th to August 18th. Those dates just happen to be the bounds of my SoC
project. I'm only responsible for a few hundred tests in there, but it shows
some of the progress that is related to my project. rakudo.de has a graph,
updated most days.
I've really enjoyed working with everyone in the Perl 6 community this summer,
and I've learned a lot. It was a fun experience, and I hope that I brought
Christmas significantly closer. I'd like to say thanks to Moritz, Larry Wall,
Particle, and pmichaud for helping mentor, being active in my #perl6-soc
meetings, and putting up with me in general. I'd also like to thank the Perl
Foundation and @Larry for accepting my project.
Now, school begins in a few days, and I have a few other projects to tend to.
I will still reside in #perl6, and I hope to continue to contribute when I
