Sounds good.

It worries me a little that you working silently, completely on your
own. You don't show up on irc, you don't ask questions, you don't show
the code.

Could you please start pushing what you're doing to github?
Even intermediate results, even if it doesn't compile - regardless?

It would be a pity if you'll work very hard and in August we'll find
that we cannot use any of that because of some small mistake that you
did in June and that all your later code depends on. It would be better
for me to look continuously and what you're doing to be able to help you
