TvHello people. I have some pointed questions about timezone handling, especially
TvHow likely is it that bug will get fixed shortly, any idea how hard it would be to fix for a capable python hacker with no prior schoolbell/zope experience?10:27
TvIt's currently basically preventing a client of mine from using schoolbell10:28
SteveAhi Tv11:05
SteveAi expect some schooltool developers to be around in 2-3 hours from now11:06
TvI'll repeat that every once in a while, then ;)11:11

SteveAkeybuk had some questions about schooltool/schoolbell and being in main/universe in ubuntu/edubuntu earlier11:43
SteveAi figured you'd know more about it than i would11:43
jintyI suppose keybuk is on #launchpad?11:44
SteveAhe is right now, yes11:45
SteveAalthough, this is more of an #ubuntu-devel question i suppose11:45

jintySteveA: no response from Keybuk, <shrug>12:01
SteveAmaybe having breakfast/lunch12:02
faassenjinty: question for you12:37
faassenjinty: if I want to add, and to the ST dependencies so they automatically show up as ZCML slugs, what does one do?12:38
faassenright now I hardcoded them into the site.zcml12:38
jintyfaassen: your'e going into the zpkg territory12:46
jintyas far as I know you would have to change the12:47
jintySETUP.cfg in
*** SteveA has left #schooltool12:47
jintyto install the slug in schooltool-skel instead of zopeskel12:47
jintyso probably hardcoding it is the right way to go for now12:49
faassenjinty: I know, I'm in zpkg territory. :)12:49
faassenjinty: okay, I will stick with that. :)12:49
* jinty is trying to figure out the cheapest option for accomodation at CERN12:54

faassenjinty: you ask for zpkg dependency stuff, rihgt?15:24
faassenjinty: what do I actually do?15:24
jintyfaassen: well normally I just wait until the daily build fails and then fix it up minimally,15:25
jintybut adding the new imports to the DEPENDENCIES.cfg15:25
jintywill save me a lit of time15:25
jintyfor example:15:26
*** tiredbones has joined #schooltool15:26
jintysimply adding the line to the schooltool/demographics/DEPENDENCIES.cfg file will pull in that module15:27
jintyif schooltool.demographics is included in the release15:28
th1asrichter:  How would you feel about coming down here?15:28
jintynormally I try to add dependencies if the module is imported directly15:28
srichterth1a: too late15:28
srichterth1a: Claudia left already for the day15:29
srichterth1a: we can also move the meeting to Monday15:29
srichterif today is bad for you15:29
*** ignas_ has joined #schooltool15:29
th1aI forgot Jennifer has rowing, which would mean I'd need to leave by 3:00.15:29
th1aOTOH, four hours might be sufficient.15:30
srichteryeah, I think so too15:30
th1aThat's a long enough meeting ;-)15:30
*** ignas_ has quit IRC15:30
th1aignas:  issue 471 is one of the timezone shifting bugs.  Is this one fixed?15:31
th1aIn SchoolTool?15:31
ignasth1a: in the new schooltool codebase yes15:31
ignasth1a: changed it to verify-fix15:32
th1aTv:  basically, the bug is fixed in SchoolTool (our school admin system) but we've got limited resources to backport the fix to SchoolBell.15:33
Tvth1a: ah, that's already good news15:33
th1aTv:  What we need is a volunteer maintainer for SchoolBell (hint hint).15:35
Tvth1a: I am likely to be able to look at individual bugs my clients hit, but not more.15:36
th1asrichter:  OK, going to take a shower.15:36
th1aTv:  Any help would be appreciated.15:37
th1aTv:  ignas can probably point you in toward the fix in the SchoolTool source tree.15:37
Tvignas: If you can do that, I'll likely backport the fix in a few days. Please add stuff to the bug report. Thank you.15:39
ignasTv: added a comment15:44
faassenjinty: okay, I'll add a DEPENCENCIES.cfg file, thanks15:56
th1asrichter:  Heading out.15:58
srichterth1a: ok15:59

povbot/svn/commits: * gintas committed revision 6075:18:37
povbot/svn/commits: Added a new security policy based on "crowds".  A crowd is a basically a group, but we are only interested in its membership test function.18:38
povbot/svn/commits: Permissions for the new security policy can be defined in ZCML.18:38
povbot/svn/commits: The new policy breaks the functional tests badly, so I have not enabled it yet in the global configuration.  When Ignas gets rid of the offending tests, the policy will be enabled by default on trunk.18:38
