When Yang did his initial review of my code, he suggested a lot of different things for me to fix. I just never did it.
Why this happened:
I think part of it was that I wasn't familiar with many of the things he was referring to, which made me feel anxious when I thought about it.
I think part of it was that I didn't have a way of tracking that task, so I lost track of it / forgot about it.
I think part of it was that I wasn't familiar with how to use Gerrit, which made me feel anxious.
I think part of it was that I was too shy about asking for help. I should have asked Andy for help.
I think part of this was that I wasn't sure who to ask for help; some people can be very helpful / happy to help, and others can be reluctant to help. You shouldn't take a person's reluctance to help to mean that everyone will be reluctant to help.
