The evaluation was done using manual and automated techniques. We were able to get findings related with following software quality characteristics:

Maintainability: As per the available data, this has been measured in terms of duplications, and rules compliance. Ideally, test coverage would also have helped to determine the testability of the code.

Our rating: High Maintainability

Refer to the data below retrieved from Sonar code analysis:
