Oh for the love of… I’m having horrible luck this winter. Third bug to knock me out. From the fever guessing this one was the flu. Ok virulent antigens, you’ve had your fun with Damian. Time to leave him alone now…
None the less, this was a good month.
Tor Internal Bylaws
We finally have a ratified voting policy!
Thanks everyone! Alison and I will put together some initial proposals but first gonna take a little breather.
Stem Test Speed
During my morning commute I’ve been poking at Stem’s test performance. Faster tests mean quicker development cycles. Always a good investment.
This took some unexpected turns resulting in…
- 22% faster integration tests.
- 25% faster descriptor parsing when validating.
- Our stem.util.test_tools module now provides a TimedTestRunner class that gives individual test runtimes. Sadly this is something Python’s built-in unittest module doesn’t have.You can run our tests with the ‘–verbose’ argument to see this information…
Other neat things this month include…
- Added shared randomness checks David and George requested to DocTor.
- Stem was unable to read shared randomness information.
- Stem 1.5.4 hotfix to account for a failure by tor to conform with its spec.
- Wrote a letter for the first time to a senator. I’ve been told I do strange things when I’m bored.
