povbot/svn/commits: Sparkline generator interface polish:14:17
povbot/svn/commits: - Explain the width constant -- it is in data points, not pixels.  - Fix the meaning of point_width and spacing arguments of render.  - Make renderAsPngData forward all its arguments to render.  - Add a docstring for renderAsPngData.14:17
povbot/svn/commits: * mg committed revision 5515:14:19

povbot/svn/commits: * mg committed revision 5516:14:20
povbot/svn/commits: On second thought, let doctest_AttendanceSparkline remain in peace.  Integration tests also have their uses.14:20

povbot/svn/commits: * jinty committed revision 5520:16:26
povbot/svn/commits: Allow zope.wfmc into the minimal tarball. This sucks, but is necessary.16:26
povbot/svn/commits: * jinty committed revision 5521:16:28
povbot/svn/commits: update a test to allow zope.wfmc and through.16:28
algajinty: hi16:29
algaare you packing the release tomorrow?16:29
jintyI don't think so, I have quite a few things to test before I can even start to look at the issue tracker16:30
jintythough at least the nightly builds are working;)16:30
jintyfor instance, how do I even build a schoolbell tarball?16:31
alganot even a haziest idea :-)16:31
mgedminjinty, I think you can't16:32
mgedminsricther's refactoring broke everything into pieces; schooltool was reassembled; schoolbell wasn't16:32
jintythat's my fear...16:32
mgedminth1a says it's not a priority16:32
jintyUnfortunately I don't have the human bandwith these days to fill the gap...16:35
jintypopcon stats show schoolbell users outnumber schooltool users 7:1 (16 installtions in total so not exactly representative)16:39
povbot/svn/commits: * alga committed revision 5522:17:22
povbot/svn/commits: More tests and for realtime attendance.  Extracted student row info into an object.17:22
srichterthe pieces we need to build schoolbell again are just coming together, such as viewlets and so on17:49
jintysrichter: will it be possible for a Zope 3.2/schooltool 2006 combination?17:51
srichterrelease Z3.2 and ST on the sam edate?17:52
povbot/svn/commits: * mg committed revision 5523:17:52
povbot/svn/commits: Bugfix: now looks at the school-wide timezone properly.17:52
povbot/svn/commits: As a result, all datetimes passed to SectionAttendanceRecord need to have timezone info; and unit tests that use section attendance need to have a ISchoolToolApplication adapter stub.17:52
povbot/svn/commits: What's this adapter, I hear you say?  Well, now you can (and should!) use17:52
povbot/svn/commits: from import ISchoolToolApplication app = ISchoolToolApplication(None)17:52
povbot/svn/commits: instead of17:52
povbot/svn/commits: from import getSchoolToolApplication app = getSchoolToolApplication()  # hard to stub!17:53
povbot/svn/commits: This is implemented by registering getSchoolToolApplication as an adapter from None to ISchoolToolApplication.17:53
povbot/svn/commits: Someone who wants a small sweet task can do a global search & replace, plus fix all the unit tests.17:53
jintysrichter: from how I read the roadmap, 3.2 releases quite a while before 200617:53
povbot/svn/commits: * ignas committed revision 5524:17:53
povbot/svn/commits: Make untie the application from the explanation activity.17:53
mgedminsrichter, schooltool.commendation unit tests still fail if you use 3.2 instead of trunk17:54
mgedminI think17:54
mgedminignas bugged me about them today17:54
mgedminwhat's "make untie" mean?17:55
ignasouch, my check in message generator still got some bugs left17:55
jintysrichter: but schooltool should always be released working with a released version of Zope 3 and 3.3 probably will not be in time for schooltool 200617:56
srichterwell, actually17:58
srichterthe final ST release wiill be in July/August17:58
srichterthen 3.3 shoudl be out17:58
jintyhas Zope3 got any track record of releasing on time?17:59
srichterno, but there is 100% committment18:02
jintylets see what happens with 3.2...18:03
jintybut aside from that, it presents a problem when dealing with Debian/Ubuntu packages if we skip a zope version.18:04
jintyFor ubuntu it means they have to decide: stay with zope3.2 and keep schooltool18:05
jintyor drop schooltool for a release and go with zope3.218:05
jintyor bring the old version of schooltool up to date18:06
*** mgedmin has quit IRC18:09
jintyparhaps it is possible to release some of our milestones with 3.2 and then switch to 3.3 later18:13
jintybut that still presents the problem of being able to build schoolbell with 3.218:15
srichterhave you tried building the old SchoolBell release with 3.2?18:17
srichterdoes it really fail?18:17
ignassrichter, yes18:17
ignasnot that18:18
ignasmisread the question, sorry18:18
jintysrichter: will try it now.18:19
povbot/svn/commits: * ignas committed revision 5525:18:32
povbot/svn/commits: Commented out both failing tests as they are failing on Zope3.2.18:32
jintysrichter: it fails with18:33
jinty    from import http18:33
jintyImportError: No module named http18:33
srichterwhere is that?18:34
srichtermmh, not so good BBB18:35
srichterthat should be fixed in Zope 3 I think18:35
jintyactually this would be an interesting test of Z3's compatibility:)18:36
jintyI wonder if there could be a buildbot testing old schooltool versions against new zope versions...18:38
ignastecnically we could do that, but you should ask Marius whether he is going to do it18:47
povbot/svn/commits: * vidas committed revision 5526:19:26
