It is very nice that you add references to pull requests, when you describe the work that you have already done.
Other students do it as well, and they are doing a great job too.

I have a suggestion that may be useful for other students as well.
When you list the things that you are going to do next week, you can also add references to the corresponding tasks/issues.
If they don't exist yet, create them first.

Hello everyone,

Here is what I did last week?

  • Added NAT configuration and made some fixes on DHCP server[1][2] 
  • I was facing issues with Debian buster vagrant box also raised an issue about it. Later I was able to fix the issue myself. Maintainers were able to reproduce the problem and accepted my solution and wrote a how-to troubleshoot wiki page about it.[3]
  • Fixed the ltsp client login problem working on the PR to make it better.[4]
  • Also had a talk with vagrantc(creator of ltsp) on irc. Learned how to troubleshoot ltsp from client
  • Made some improvements in client.sh (Still working on making it even better)[4]
  • Added Vagrantfile, README.md, Provision script for debian buster.[5]
  • Also explored vagrant-cachier plugin to speed up testing process.

Problems I could not solve
  • Still need to make some improvements in client.sh
  • Need to work on my bash scripting skills. Currently they are just OK

Plans for next week
  • Will finish work with client.sh
  • Work on creating virtual network for ltsp server client and dhcp server for non standalone mode
  • Will start studying about Debian packaging
  • Then I will start with task decided for next week. Porting ubuntu-edu packages to Debian
  • Work on Automatic reconfiguration of dnsmasq for non standalone mode of operation
