Hi all - is it too late for me to register as a mentor or a backup mentor? I would like to propose an enhancement project for our Android client. In its current state, there are bugs when running the app on newer versions of Android, and not enough error messages is shown after each application crash happens.
Secondly, the project is using old, deprecated frameworks that should be replaced with its more robust counterpart. 1 example (which I think is one major cause of the recent app crashes) is Active Android to deal with saving data to the local database, and that it should be replaced with Android Room. It will make the code easier to read also.
Finally, the Provider module for Android client is also a common discussion topic and I’d like to see this feature implemented in GSoC 2019.
I thank @csmuthukuda for creating the Wiki page and I’ll update it as soon as possible to document fixing existing bugs found in the app. I really want to bring back activity on the AC project so I am very excited to mentor this project in GSoC 2019. Again, sorry for the late reply!
