The timeline for my project is given below and also edited in proposal doc:

Timeline for project :

    1 week   - getting the setup up done

    1 week   - reading documentation

    2 weeks  - Initial research and code understanding.

    4 weeks - Code development

    1 week  - Test the changes

    3 weeks - submitting patches upstream, and

    making revisions to the patches as suggested by upstream developers.

To deal with code coverage, I will run individual test cases to find
out why the coverage is below 100%.
I am sure after running each and every test cases i will come with new
test cases to increase the code coverage.

To add test cases for new functionality, I will understand first what
its use case, why it is implemented, what are the purpose, what its
input/output criteria and according to that I can make my finding and
understanding into test cases.
