Accomplishments

Status of four bugs has been marked resolved in the bugzilla. I have received feedbacks on other bugs which I expect to resolve it soon

Challenges and Feedbacks

I have been receiving repeated feedbacks about the indentation issues in the HTML code which needs to be fixed soon. I shall fix it and explain it in the next post 🙂
