jelknerpcardune: why the "guess"?16:14
pcardunewell, I'm showing woo around the new schooltool16:14
pcardunebut we can stop for a few minutes16:14
jelknerok, let me be brief then16:14
pcarduneI mean, we only have one computer, so we'll have to stop at some point no matter what16:14
jelknerr u ready 4 saturday?16:14
pcarduneWhat's on staurday?16:15
pcardune(that was woo)16:15
jelkneri think we should have our modus operandi in place by then16:15
pcarduneIs it really this saturday?16:15
jelkner10 am to 5 pm16:15
jelknereveryone will be there16:16
jelkneryou are leading ;-)16:16
pcarduneI guess it really is already the first of june16:16
pcardunewell, no. I'm not ready for saturday16:16
jelknerwell, you have today and tomorrow to change that16:16
pcardunewe need to set ourselves up over here at ACC16:16
jelknerwhat can i do to help?16:16
jelknerjstraw will help with that16:16
pcarduneI guess we'll have to take over a classroom16:17
jelknerjason can tell you that16:17
pcarduneand we are going to need enough computers so people can at least pair16:17
jelknerwelsh and straw, not your worry16:17
pcarduneand you and I need to come up with a written down list of what is going to happen16:17
pcarduneincluding a schedule16:17
pcardunelike maybe the first hour should be a walkthrough or something16:17
pcarduneIt won't take more than an hour to get ready for saturday16:18
jelknerthat is generally how sprints work16:18
pcardunebut i haven't really had a spare hour yet16:18
jelknerthe first few hours should be some kind of tutorial16:18
pcarduneor at least one with you or welsh for better user stories16:18
jelknerthe rest of the day spent hacking16:18
pcarduneby better i meant more16:18
jelknertalk to dave about that today16:19
jelkneri'm sorry he isn't there16:19
pcarduneit's fine16:19
jelknerlet's postpone all this discussion until he gets here16:19
pcardunewe have stuff to work on in the interim16:19
jelknerwhat we need to decide now is the repository quesiton16:20
jelknerat least as far as saturday goes16:20
jelknerif we use bzr on local machines, can you take anything produced and get it into the main code base?16:21
pcardunei think so16:21
pcardunelet's go ahead and try bzr16:21
jelkneryes, i think that makes the most sense16:21
pcardunesaturday can be the big test day for bzr16:21
jelknereasiest to accomplish16:21
jelknerkjcole will be there to help with that16:22
pcardunewe can switch back to svn if we need to16:22
jelknerok, i'll let you work with woo16:22
pcarduneok then16:22
pcardunebye bye16:22

whaddonpcardune: I still do not understand how to create an adapter18:45
povbot/svn/commits: * ignas committed revision 6148:18:46
povbot/svn/commits: Make section information and section calendar access configurable.18:46
ignaswhaddon: which part don't you understand? how to write a class/function that is an adapter or how to register it in ZCML?18:46
ignasor how to register one in unit tests ?18:47
pcarduneor how they are suppose to work conceptually18:48
whaddonI do not understand how to convert an existing class into an adapter18:49
pcardunedo you have the adapter registered in zcml already?18:50
pcarduneremind me again what you are adapting18:50
whaddonI was adapting a class representing a person into one representing a student18:51
pcarduneoh right18:51
pcarduneyour adapter should be a function18:52
whaddonWhat do you mean?18:52
ignasfaassen: are you going to fix the deprecation warning in the zc.resourcelibrary egg ? or maybe you have fixed it already and all i need is to do some magic to update the egg ...18:52
pcardunewell, an adapter is just anything that converts one object into another object, it doesn't matter what form it is in18:53
faassenignas: I still need to go fix it, I'll do that.18:53
pcarduneyou can convert objects using functions if you want18:53
pcarduneso you would have a function called personToStudentAdapter18:53
ignasfaassen: thank you18:53
pcarduneand it would take as an argument the person object18:54
pcardunethen you would want to create a student object, in this function, using whatever attributes cross over (like first name, last name, etc.)18:54
pcardunefrom the original person object18:54
pcarduneit might look like student = Student(person.firstName, person.lastName, .....)18:55
pcardunethen you want to return the student object18:55
pcardunestart with that18:56
whaddonShould first name, last name, etc. still be in the student interface?18:56
pcarduneyes, as those are important aspects of what defines a student18:56
whaddonOK. I will do that.18:56
