Code Review and Documentation in a C++ Repository on GitHub

Students explore an open source project (QGIS, also known as Quantum GIS), hosted on GitHub, and answer a few questions about its meta-data. They are asked to read the implementation of its priority queue class, which has no documentation, and to write contract-style comments for the member functions in the interface file for that class.
