My colleague and I have been working on a software project. I recently proposed some changes to the code base and requested for his review. He then added some comments as below:

Now that I see you have created the "keys" list, I can see that the list having items erased from it is not the one being iterated on. I am willing to try the code as is.

The first sentence simply means he now understands the changes that I have made. But I am not sure what the later sentence means. Does it mean he agrees with the changes or does he want to keep the original code?

    'As is', sometimes written 'as-is', means 'as it is, without changes'. – Michael Harvey Nov 20 '19 at 16:29
  • @MichaelHarvey It means he prefers the original one (without changes)? – duong_dajgja Nov 20 '19 at 16:36
  • He is willing to try it. That's all. – Michael Harvey Nov 20 '19 at 17:26

    I suggest you ask your collegue. It's not obvious if it means "without the changes" or "without further changes". – James K Nov 20 '19 at 19:37
