You seem to be making good progress!

Spending some time to get familiar with the codebase is not a bad thing,
and of course you can continue to send patches to JIRA during a release
freeze.  If you find you are really blocked please ask for a temporary
private branch which we can provide for you to make progress.

Private branches are usually discouraged because we should all be
testing and fixing the release candidate, but as a GSoC I appreciate you
need to make progress on a given timetable.

Not spam at all! It's great to hear about what you are doing.  Please
share any joys and problems so we can all join in the fun with you.

I'm committing some of your patches, and it is good to see they are
small and well contained, so easy to review.  Keep it up.
