jintya good editor and ...13:22
jintyon the subject of eggs. It seems like python has something against the FHS. eggs don't really help. Also, what is a debian package, but an egg. Perhaps 2 wheels are too many.13:25

th1a_alga won't be pleased.19:18
bskahanno, probably not19:19

th1a_mgedmin:  When are you guys going to be able to focus on SchoolTool again, illness notwithstanding?19:24
bskahannoone from POV around19:26
th1a_Oh yeah.19:26
*** th1a_ is now known as th1a19:26
th1aI have a question, bskahan.19:28
th1aI'm working on my LearningStandardDocument,19:28
* bskahan nods19:28
th1aand I've got some attributes that are sequences.19:28
th1aSo I can't just make them schema fields, right?  I mean, there's no proper widget for them, is there.  It isn't a selection list for, say, a sequence of author names.19:30
bskahanI don't believe we're currently using anything like that, but there's a List and Set schema in zope.schema19:30
bskahanand Tuple19:31
bskahanmy guess is you want List19:31
th1aI saw that but I couldn't get it to work.19:33
th1aLet me try again.19:33
bskahantake a look at zope.schema.tests.test_listfield19:34
bskahanth1a: is using List the way you probably need19:38
th1aThat helps.19:39
bskahancan't do anything with preferences on Zope Principals19:47
bskahanpreferences only apply to Schoolbell users19:47
bskahanwhich is a pain, since currently you can't login as a schoolbell user19:48
