Hi all,

below is my first week report.

Best regards,
Wiki page:

Bounding period, April, 22 - May, 22

I got in touch with my mentors. We discussed some possibilities for
I installed Ubuntu, GRASS and QtCreator on my laptop.
I got little bit stucked with QtCreator Debugger, but with my mentors help
it works now.
I looked at the bug #2494[1] and did a little research on it.
I fixed the bug #2436[2]. X-axis ticks labels now work in d.histogram.

Week 1, May, 23-27

1. What did you get done this week?

I worked on the module d.northarrow.
I solved the ticket #3018[3] and added option for custom north-arrow label.
I solved the ticket #3019[4] and added more north-arrow symbols.
I solved the ticket #3031[5] and added option for north-arrow symbol
I fixed the bug #1242[6] module now works in Lat-Long projection too but I
need discuss the solution with my mentors.

I worked on the module d.barscale.
I solved the ticket #3016[7], added option length for custom barscale size,
option segment for setting number of segments of barscale,
added flag -u to display full unit name/only symbol. I need discuss the
solution with my mentors.
I solved the ticket #3020[8] and added flag for displaying a capital N with
a simple arrow over it next to the barscale.

I worked on the module d.grid.
I solved the ticket #3017[8] and added option to choose background color of
grid labels.

2. What do you plan on doing next week?
Next week I want to continue with others d.* modules and look on d.text and
d.vect modules.

3. Are you blocked on anything?
I don't think I am blocked on anything but I work in slow pace because all
d.* modules are written in C which I have few experience with.
