The contributions

ContributorURLProjectScore
@stmdevBeem-0.20.14: beempy verify --use-api fails with TypeErrorbeem85
@blockchainstudio[Bug fix] Incorrect vote value due to incorrect voting powerbusy.org68

This week we had just 2 contributions. It must have been because of the holidays, we can say the bugs roamed free while the hunters were at rest :)

The 2 reports were scored higher than 0. @stmdev's submission was to the beem project, he noticed that that -

beempy verify --trx [trx_num] --use-api [block_num] raises a TypeError.

Fix

The problem, in this case, was that the corresponding raw transaction data was parsed already and timestamp strings were replaced by datetime objects. The TransactionBuilder class used to load that transaction tried to JSON-serialize these objects and failed. By passing the raw JSON transaction data to the TransactionBuilder class instead of the preprocessed data, the class can properly serialize the data.

stmdev would go on to make a pull request that implemented this fix.

@blockchainstudio observed that the vote value on busy.org was being shown incorrectly.

The voting power Steem API provides is the voting power updated on the last vote. Thus to get the correct voting power, we need to calculate the time passed since the last vote and adjust the actual voting power. Busy.org doesn't use that update for the vote value.

He also made a pull request that fixed the error.

Hello @fego, I appreciate the effort put in writing the weekly overview of the Bug-hunting category.
The holidays period was dull across all category. So, I guess the Bug-hunting category is not an exception. However, it's good that the two submitted contributions were good enough to receive good scores.

Please note that while the CM hasn't changed the footer, I am not scoring #iamutopian posts based on the questionnaire. They have their own metric, and that will be the case until we go live with the new guidelines and new questionnaire, which will be comprehensive enough to reflect these types of posts.

Your contribution has been evaluated according to Utopian policies and guidelines, as well as a predefined set of questions pertaining to the category.
