mgedminexplain, please14:49
mgedminwhat does it do?14:49
mgedminbuild a source tree for schoolbell?14:49

srichterBenji just released his buildout code yesterday, so we will use it to build schoolbell14:50
* mgedmin pauses14:50
mgedminoh, wrong tree14:50
mgedminI was looking at a different branch14:50
srichterok :-)14:50
mgedminand I saw a 'build' directory that only contained schoolbell sources14:50
srichteroh, I see14:50

ignasjinty, when are you planing to make the optimization release ?16:01
*** tvon has joined #schooltool16:03
jintyas soon as the optimization patches make their way into the release branch...16:05
jintywould be nice to do it before breezy releases, but I fear we are too late16:06
ignaswhat is/was the hard deadline ?16:06
ignasthe problem is - i don't know any dates/milestones16:08
ignasthere is a pile of bugs marked as urgent yet - i don't know how urgent that is ...16:09
ignaswhat bugfix releases are you planing to make ? is optimisation release the last one for ST 0.12 ?16:10
jintythe hard dedline was about 1.5 months ago16:13
jintyas for the optimization release being the last fro st 0.1116:13
jintyI doubt tht16:13
jintywhat I am doing right now is building new packages with debian specific patches for translations and the bug I mailed to the list16:14
ignasth1a, ping16:15
jintyget that into ubuntu, then see about an optimization release16:15
ignasi see16:16

ignassrichter, ping16:48
ignasyou sent a list of revisions yo want ported to the new-trunk17:11
ignasmaybe you could tello me17:12
ignaswhy you skipped revs 26,29,30,31 ?17:12
ignasthey were a part of refactoring nescessary to implement future optimizations17:12
ignasrev 37 depends on these 417:13
ignasand you asked us to backport rev 37 too ...17:13
srichterbecause I merged those already17:14
srichterI started with the merge, then I noticed that it will be a pain and I stopped ;-)17:14
ignasoh, i see17:15
srichterth1a: I guess now that the refactor branch is merged to the trunk, I can write you an invoice? :-)17:15
* mgedmin wouldn't use the word 'merged' here17:17
ignaswhat about 4926 ?17:18
* mgedmin switch the trunks but hadn't had the time to even take a look at the new trunk, other than running all tests17:18
srichterignas: I thought I merged that too; it's not in my inbox of checkins still to be merged17:21
srichter(or I found it unimportant)17:22
srichterbtw, I got a first rough version of pagelets working now17:22
*** drwoo has joined #schooltool17:24

th1aSteveA:  What do you mean by "specification?"19:21
SteveAthe idea of writing down in some detail the features that are planned for schooltool development, or how to fix particularly tricky bugs, and getting what was written reviewed by others so that you can be assured it is readable19:22
SteveAthere are lots of examples on wiki.launchpad.net19:22
SteveAit gives non-developers a look into the development process, and an opportunity to comment or ask questions or raise red flags19:24
th1aWell, I'm pretty far into getting the "Plone Software Center" set up on the new site, which includes's system for making enhancement proposals.19:25
SteveAlaunchpad now has a system for tracking metadata about specifications19:25
SteveAyou can put the actual proposals anywhere19:26
SteveAand track them through launchpad19:26
th1aHere's the new (unskinned) ST site:
th1aMost of the work I've done so far is under "Products."19:27
th1aSome of the page templates are a little wonky.19:28
povbot`/svn/commits: * jinty committed revision 4999:19:39
povbot`/svn/commits: Install the test modules by default. Needed for debian packaging.19:39
th1atvon: ayt?19:46
povbot`/svn/commits: * jinty committed revision 5000:19:59
povbot`/svn/commits: Modify schoolbell makefile so that updating translations is easier. The way to do this is:19:59
povbot`/svn/commits: export TRANSLATION=(url of the tarball from rosetta) make get-rosetta-translations make get-rosetta-translations (Yes it needs to be done twice;) make update-translations (Be sure they all compile)19:59
povbot`/svn/commits: Commit only the *.po files which compile.19:59
povbot`/svn/commits: * jinty committed revision 5001:20:11
povbot`/svn/commits: Also provide some schooltool makefile rules for rosetta. They work the same way as the schoolbell ones.20:11
