Hi all,

I am working on the implementation of a framework which supports addition
of contraction techniques for pgRouting for the GsoC 2016. This is my
seventh report.

*My initial plan*

   - Design and implement a function to expand the contracted graph, for
   testing purpose.

*What did I do this week?*

   - Discussion with the mentor about graph expansion on 05/07/2016.
   - Getting familiar with pl/pgsql.
   - Wrote a pl/pgsql script which expands the contracted graph.
   - Signature change of the contraction function.
      - Storing contracted vertices in an array instead of a string.
      - Addition of cost column to the output of the contraction query.
   - Discussion with the mentor about updating the pgTap test on 08/07/2016.
   - Update the pgTap tests due to change in the function signature.

*What will I be working on next week?*

   - Write the user documentation of the classes implemented so far.

*Did I meet with any stumbling blocks?*

   - I faced an issue in comparing arrays while adjusting the pgTap tests
   to the latest signature. My mentor Vicky Vergara helped me resolve the
   - At the moment I’m not blocked.
