Hi Rishabh,

I have updated the TODO section with the current state of refactoring (*as

Great. We will soon have a meeting once I update my local code with the
current version in the repository (in 3-4 days). Its best to update the
repository every time you work on it so I get to see the path to grasp it

We would consider Ranker class as abstract, so we just need to declare the
methods in it and the derived classes of Ranker like ListMLE will implement
essential methods of Ranker class. In addition, ListMLE might have some
local methods which are required just for that class.

meeting on IRC this friday.
