So, Polling module. Remember that? Way back when, I was working on bringing accessibility features into it so it could finally become a proper part of the BigBlueButton client. Two things put the brakes on that: first, there were more pressing accessibility concerns in the main client which really were more important. Second, I kind of made a mess of the branch that the polling accessibility work was in.
So recently, I’ve been putting together what I think of as a “clean” branch for accessible polling, where I checked out first from master, and then the polling-specific files from the old “unclean” branch. After a bit of tinkering, the “clean” branch is approximately where the old one was, but focused entirely on polling. The trouble is, this has resulted in one enormous commit at the beginning and several small ones which don’t do a lot to increase the legibility of the entire affair.
Now what I need to do is check out another clean branch, and basically have my Eclipse open on one screen and the commit list from the “giant commit” branch on the other; with the commit list to remind me what needs changing and where it is, I can do this the right way with one branch for one feature the way it’s supposed to be.
This may take a while.
