GSoC 2017 : Weekly Report #2

Week #2

Key accomplishments last week:

Key tasks that stalled:


Tasks in the upcoming week:

Note: All these tasks were related to phpMyAdmin’s Error Reporting System (Github).


Issue #106 focussed on adding better functionality of notifications handling. I added a ‘Select all’ check box to select all the notifications on a single page. The pagination was not working before and was fixed.  I also added a ‘Mark All Notifications as Read’ button which would ask the user to confirm and if confirmed will mark all his notifications read (unrecoverable).

Issue #31 was about providing email notifications to the developers whenever a new report is added on the Error reporting system. A tricky part was to test sending of emails in unit testing, it needed me to add a new custom email transport.

For the next week, I would be targeting to implement #98 which aims to bring back the ability of the Error Reporting Server to follow the status of report-linked Github issues and update the same for the reports that it is linked with.
