Week 10 & 11 Report
Hello everyone, one more update and we are approaching the final week. It has been an incredible journey, and I am grateful for each and every part of it.
TL;DR: Finished the set requirements in the proposal, next on focusing on the documentation and solving related bugs on Bugzilla
Let's visit the points we have set initially for the project.
- [x] Develop a mechanism to remember selected recipients for future saves
- [x] Improve the recipient selection UI to make it more intuitive and user-friendly
- [x] Allow intelligently searching for keys in large keyrings
- [x] Improve UI latency for navigating large keyrings
- [x] Implement a filtering feature to narrow down search results
We can see that we have successfully achieved the project's initial goals. It has been a magnificent journey where I learned a lot and worked with one of the best codebases I have encountered with some of the finest developers in the community. I am glad for the progress but sad that the journey has almost ended. However, needless to say, I will keep working with LibreOffice in the future, mainly tackling issues related to Digital Signatures (feel free to CC me on any of those which arise). Next week, I will be improving the documentation part of the xmlsecurity module to include a subset of the information I learned throughout the journey so next developers will suffer less. I will also be iterating over issues related to certificate management and digital signatures in general. I will also file some improvement tickets on BZ for things that could be done to improve the experience.
A Special Acknowledgment
Before almost concluding the journey, I would love to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Thorsten Behrens, Heiko Tietze, and Hossein Nourikhah. Their guidance and enthusiasm have been the fuel that pushed the progress. I would also love to thank all of LibreOffice developers for their continuous work on the project.
See you in the next and final week! Feel free to email me with any questions, concerns, or only chatting! <3
