vmxignas: yesterday i tried to set all-day-events freom datetime to date. there are places where you need special cases18:04
*** jinty has joined #schooltool18:07
ignasvmx, and what are the places ?18:50
*** thisfred has quit IRC18:50
ignasand how about unit tests, i'd expect some serious breakages ...18:50
vmxi haven't run any nittests yet, first i want to get the interface right (ok perhaps it's the wrong  way to go)18:54
vmxvery often is it als about ".date()"18:54
vmxwhen you don't need the time18:55
vmxbut of course has no date()18:55
vmxperhaps that should/can be changed18:55
vmxsomething like an event.dtstartdate attribute18:56
vmxbut you proabably know a better solution t osolve it18:56
ignasdt  stands for datetime18:57
ignasso datetimestartdate is not sensible18:57
vmxic (i wondered what the dt means ;)18:58
vmxi found in the source just "start" and "end" somewhere18:58
vmxperhaps these should be used more often18:58
vmxok, it's only used for single events19:00
vmxand using dtstart with an date object would be also wrong19:01
vmxa dtstarttz would be also nice19:10
vmxwhat do you think about adding an start (and perhpas even dtstarttz) attribute?19:11
vmxi g2g, i'll be back later19:24
ignaswhy dtstarttz ?19:27
ignasyou can get it from the datetime object19:27
ignasdatetime.tzinfo iirc19:27
*** erchache has joined #schooltool19:30
erchacheth1a: hi!19:30
erchachehow are you? :-P19:30
th1aI'm OK.  How are you erchache?19:30
erchacheufff... a lot of job19:31
erchachei finish mysql replication on a very very overloaded server exactly now19:31
th1aYou were successful?19:31
erchachewe are planning to redo translation of es.po because some terms and words has a very ugly translation into spanish19:32
erchacheyes! i do it19:32
erchachedo i say we are using mrbs instead schoolbell for computer rooms on my university?19:32
th1aYes, you told me that.19:33
erchachewell, with help of this change other universities of my country are interesting on take calendars to manage their events...and perhaps i can get more help for schooltool with this19:36
erchacheother question: Can i present schooltool into guadalinex and linex distro community?19:36
erchachei want to publish schooltool into these communities19:36
erchacheand get more users19:36
th1aerchache:  I certainly don't have a problem with that.  You don't really need my permission anyhow ;-)19:37
erchacheignas a ugly but fast LAMP reservation manager19:37
erchacheok, in this case i can make a little document and send to respective mailing list19:37
erchachewhich versions of schooltool/schoolbell are located on debian repositories?19:38
th1aerchache:  Just to make sure I understand, they're using mrbs instead of SchoolTool, right?19:39
erchacheyes, but only on our department19:40
erchacheteachers are using schooltool19:40
erchacheand likes this more than mrbs19:40
th1aAh.  OK.19:41
th1aThe Debian repository should have the lastest releases in the stable branch, which, iirc would be the x.x.4 releases.19:42
*** th1a has left #schooltool19:42
*** th1a has joined #schooltool19:42
erchachethe biggest reason to do it is because mrbs are LAMP and can integrate on HIDRA, a remote clone installator which use on our classrooms19:43
erchacheAnd here doesnt have many zope programmers :-(19:43
*** jinty has quit IRC19:48
*** jinty has joined #schooltool19:49
vmxignas: i'll be away again, but to you question "why dtstarttz". dtstart is often the utc time, dtstarttz, would be in the current timezone then. you would save the ".astimezone"20:01
