Cover letter:

The video while creating the cube is:

The log file is uploaded at: [[1]]

How many hours each part of the test took to complete:

1) Installing Linux -- 5 hours

2) Learning FreeCAD -- 20 hours

3) Documenting your work--and which section was most difficult. -- Documenting took almost 7 hours. The section that was difficult was finding a screw that was long enough to pass through 2 tubing. Also, the video that I recorded did not open with kdenlive. Used ffmpeg through terminal instead. Thus, could not add the background music.

Score yourself 0-100 based on the percentage of the Test points that you have completed successfully - and include that score in your work log comments. -- I would give myself 60% as I could not add the background score and that it took me too long to complete the test.

Also, I did not understand how to create the wiki log page for long time. We have to search for the name of the log and then click on create log link - this was not intuitive work flow for me. If this is explained in the developer test, it might be easier for others to follow.
