Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-418) add a storeless version of Percentile
Date Wed, 21 May 2014 17:12:39 GMT


Venkatesha Murthy TS commented on MATH-418:

just wanted to add few points here:

First of, many thanks for suggesting a good set of comments which i have tried incorporating
allmost all of them.

The new patch to be used for review is 418-psquare-patch, 

a) The earlier reasons for using variables such as n, np etc were to indicate the variables
as close as possible to resemble variables used in the paper. However i have already incorporated
self describing long names in the new patch

b) is there a way to put these rules in checkstyle or such things to automate; as its hard
to remember to manually do these every time. Please let me know if this is available somewhere
so i can use

c) Do i need to remove the earlier patch file as having 2 patch files may confuse. Please
let know.

thanks again
