Thank you very much. And extremely sorry for the delay on my side too. I
was really lost and struggling with understanding everything. I did read
through the example as well as most of your GSOC log last year. It was
really helpful in getting a good grasp on everything.

I understood the work done in axis ticks for categorical data. I also read
through the open PR (#6934
<https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/pull/6934>), and #6214
<https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/6214>. I still couldn't
exactly understand what #6802
<https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/6802> is about though. I
also went through #7383
<https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/7383> and am trying to
work on that. Is this a good starting point for me? I still don't think
have a great overall idea about everything.

Also I am writing a proposal. I was thinking of going with your approach
and extending categorical support for imshow. Is this a good idea for the
project? Really sorry about all the small questions. I am somewhat new to
opensource and finding it quite difficult.

Thank you.

With Regards
