About Test Set Leakage in Round 1

Hello everyone,

I’ve noticed an issue regarding the previous competition round. It appears that logs from the inference code are accessible, resulting in significant data leakage. This means that all query and search results can be printed. Consequently, I’d like to inquire whether the organizers plan to release the test set for Round 1 to prevent some participants from gaining additional dataset insights. Moreover, this dataset could potentially share the same distribution as future test sets.

@aicrowd_team I suggest that the Round 2 test set should be truly private and not share any similarity or distribution with the data in Round 1.

In fact, the test set for round1 is the data set given to us, so there is no leakage problem
