Limitations

Analysis Scope

● Major languages like C/C++, Java, and Rust are not yet supported.

● Other SCM platforms, such as GitLab, Gitee, and self-hosted platforms, are not yet supported.

● Scanning private repositories is not currently supported (due to fairness considerations).

● Analysis and aggregation of different types of information from sources like StackOverflow and LeetCode are still not supported.

Assessment Aspects

● Soft skills assessment, based on commit messages and community discussions/collaborations (e.g., pull requests, issues, discussions, replies), is not yet supported.

● Assessment of abstraction skills, including compliance with OOP/FP design principles and detection of design patterns, is not yet supported.

Accuracy

● Plagiarism and vendoring detection are yet to be implemented.

● The main contributor of the repository is currently held responsible for all issues found, regardless of who introduced them.

● Current rules are based on the latest best practices, potentially leading to lower ratings for out-of-maintenance repositories (though old repositories have minimal or no impact on the overall score).

● Other false positives are inevitable (some high-FP rules are excluded from scoring but issues are retained in the listing for reference).

User Impacts

● Improved User Experience: Users can expect a more intuitive interface and enhanced functionality, leading to increased productivity and satisfaction.

● Enhanced Security: The addition of a developer login portal ensures heightened data protection and user authentication.

Notes

We recommend updating to GitRoll 2.0.1 to take advantage of these new features and improvements.
