jnevesif anyone can give me a clue on how to add a language, thanks in advance00:55
ignasadd a language?01:07
jnevesignas: there a preferences configuration of language for a person01:10
jnevesthere is01:10
jneveshow do I add a language to that?01:11
jneves(we're finishing a translation to pt_PT of schooltool)01:11
ignasno, it's not per person01:12
ignasit's per application01:12
ignasso you must select the language in schooltool.conf01:13
jnevesI did that01:14
jnevesI'm already looking at a translated interface :)01:14
jnevesbut - let me check the exact place01:14
ignaspcardune: (setq frame-title-format01:16
ignas      (list (format "Emacs %s %%S: %%j " (system-name))01:16
ignas            '(buffer-file-name "%f" (dired-directory dired-directory "%b"))))01:16
jnevesignas: on a person demographics01:19
jnevesignas: sorry for the delay, but the computer is trashing01:20
jneveshow can I add a language there?01:20
ignasyou mean it's not translated?01:20
jnevesI mean that Portuguese is not a choice01:22
jneveswhich is strange for what we're looking at schooltool: to implement it in a portuguese school ;)01:22
ignasin there01:23
ignaswell - this thing is set in code01:23
ignasi mean you should probably edit the code01:23
ignasand have a custom Person for your school01:23
ignasthough that is not very easy :/01:23
jnevesignas: I'm using the last SVN version - I'll probably manage to add it ;)01:25
*** Humpel_ has left #schooltool01:25
jnevesthanks for the tip01:26
jnevesignas: BTW, do you have any idea why there is pt and pt-PT locales? usually it's one or the other...01:27
ignasno idea ...01:27
jnevesok, thanks01:27
jnevesignas: BTW - we tripped on at least one non-ascii character bug - are those normal? I saw some related bugs on the issue tracker...01:29
ignasno, they are not normal01:30
ignasand if you would provide all the information01:30
ignasand steps to reproduce the bug01:30
ignasit would make me very happy :)01:30
jnevesignas: I've reported it - let me get you the number01:32
jnevesignas: basically I wasn't able to create a schedule for a section -
jnevesall of term, course, section and group name had non-ascii characters01:34
ignasok, thank you01:35
ignasi will fix it either today, or some time tomorrow as i am quite busy sprinting01:35
jneveswe have a meeting trying to convince a school to adopt this tuesday - so that would be great01:37
jnevesno more unstranslated phrases for pt-PT - now to get those fuzzy bastards...01:40

*** aelkner has quit IRC05:40
ignasLumiere: hi05:45
Lumierehow are things going there?05:46
ignasnot bad05:50
ignaswe have quite nice resource management, and i have started working on the display of available resources05:51
FujitsuHi ignas, Lumiere.05:56
* Fujitsu has seen quite a few commits fly through his MUA over the past 24 hours.05:57
FujitsuIs there a definitive design for the new resource management stuff?05:57
LumiereI'd be down there with ignas & company06:00
FujitsuAh, I didn't think to look at the CanDo wiki.06:00
Lumiereif I weren't feeling like crap06:00
Lumiereanyways, the reason it's on the cando wiki is that is where the customer base comes from for it06:03
FujitsuA good point.06:05
LumiereI'm trying to replace a crappy lab scheduler that the school system developing cando uses06:06
Lumiere(I wrote it in like 3 weeks because they needed something asap, but I want to replace it)06:07
FujitsuWe're currently using paper (urgh!) at school, and are looking to replace it in the near future.06:07
Lumierehopefully this will do it for you06:07
Lumiereand if you use schooltool for your courses/sections06:07
Lumiereresource scheduling should really be easy to work with06:08
FujitsuWe moved to a proprietary solution for class/attendance stuff a couple of years ago, unfortunately.06:08
Lumieresame here06:08
Lumiereit sucks06:08
FujitsuThe changeover was horrible. A large number of issues cropped up, and I was managing most of it after they decided on it :(06:09
FujitsuSchoolTool should be great, particularly because it's actually {flexi,modifia}ble.06:10
