Congratulations on being accepted into GSoC 2018 with Xapian!
as discussed in the interview, I might evaluate the
> GLS-MPT implementation before moving on to optimizations (C2-GLS).
We had a discussion with regard to this, and the decision was to perform
evaluation after the optimizations as you had originally proposed. So let's
stick to your original plan and complete the implementation of C2-GLS
before going ahead with evaluation.
