    6 //This is a difficult project, involving raw database operations on live user data, where the results must be carefully validated to avoid unrecoverable data loss. It will require knowledge of SQL and database administration, code generation or an equivalent means of specifying the process of converting a database, providing a UI when human assistance is needed to specify the conversion. It will involve dealing with source control tools, continuous integration, and automated testing. It is thus recommended for advanced students. We will limit the scope of the project to what can be done during the summer.//
