The following issues have been discovered during preliminary testing:
- for the first time script did not exit after returning JSON into stdout
Large Dodo Dec 13, 2019 at 07:33
this is highly impossible because process.exit is hard coded underneath print command. Thus when stdout got message, that process has exit.

Possible reasons:

1. that is NOT my submission, see my comments above.

2. the user account on that testing Debian machine has incorrect right setting to access os temp folder
Fair Leopard Dec 15, 2019 at 20:04
There was an issue on our side. The problem has now been fixed.
Large Dodo Dec 16, 2019 at 16:07
thank you Fair Leopard
Poor categorization accuracy: almost all articles are classified as Other
Large Dodo Dec 18, 2019 at 14:33
That's true. categorization is calculated by a pre-processed datasheet. I was in a rush and only composed < 1/10 of that datasheet.
And the idea is to maintain that datasheet on a regular basis.
Poor news detection accuracy: very few non-news articles are detected
Large Dodo Dec 18, 2019 at 14:34
True, I should have thought more carefully about non-news articles
Clustering is too conservative. Very few threads with >1 articles
Large Dodo Dec 18, 2019 at 14:35
True. Clustering in my submission is not in good quality comparing to others. More criteria should be put into consideration.
