Testing and Issues

You can test this app and submit issues during the testing period of the Data Clustering Contest contest.

Entries with serious issues will not be able to win the contest, but even minor issues might be important for overall results.




How to fix empty filenames issue without changing source code:

- Decompress the data set with this command:
> tar -zxf DataClusteringDatasetEn.tar.gz
directly in the same directory where tgnews is and execute the program (right image).

Note: If you decompress the data inside another directory, the program doesn't work (left image). I don't know why that happens, but it only happens with this data set, for all data set uploaded during the contest, the program works well in both circumstances.

The data sets are rare. When It decompress on the Nautilus interface, it doesn't by a Permission denied. But when I decompress the data set with console command and execute the program, it runs fine. I think that issue is because of data because, for all data sets uploaded during the contest, the program works fine.

There is no reason your app requires exaclty "20191129/" folder, but it works. So your algorithm has been relaunched and we will apply relevant penalties during the final scoring.
Threads are collections of absolutely unrelated articles
Categories assignment appears random for English. Almost all articles go into Society in Russian
2/3 of articles are "Other" in News for Russian, which is too much. In English, almost none of them in "Other", which is too little.
Both Russian and English articles contain articles in other languages.
