jstraw(or lithuanian, but I can't tell)17:39
jstrawthe LOCALE of the server is set to en.UTF817:39
ignaswell - i'd check browser preferences17:39
ignasbecause schooltool has 2 modes of operation17:39
ignasreact to browser settings17:39

wjohnstoignas: ayt?19:09
*** whaddon has joined #schooltool19:09
wjohnstowe are having trouble understanding something in a page template19:09
wjohnstodisabled obj/schooltool:has_dependents19:09
wjohnstothere's a checkbox when viewing skill drivers19:09
ignasdid you try grepping for "has_dependents" in zcml ?19:10
wjohnstohmm let me try19:10
ignaswhen you will find the namespace traversal thingajamajig19:11
ignasjust look at what it does19:11
wjohnstoignas: our method is inheriting everything from (except the template), but I cannot find "has_dependents" in either of the zcml19:15
ignasit's not anywhere near the container19:16
ignasit's in app or skin19:16
wjohnstoI grepped for it in skin, but only found it in container.pt19:16
wjohnstoI'll see about app19:16
ignasfound it19:16
ignasis the class19:17
wjohnstoI see19:17
wjohnstothank you19:18
wjohnstodo you know how you would use disabled obj/schooltool:has_dependents if you had to use python?19:19
ignaswell - look at the source of that thing19:19
ignasIDependable(thing, None)19:20
ignasreturns an iterable that has all the objects that your object depends on19:20
ignasthat depend on your object19:20
ignasit's so you could not delete groups that "group" container depends on19:21
ignaslike "manager" group19:21
wjohnstowell in our case19:21
wjohnstoit's course skill drivers displayed within sections19:21
wjohnstoand the section depends on the course19:21
ignasI am not sure you even need that check, but if you want to use dependents then look at the IDependable19:22
ignasand maybe find the place that creates groups in schooltool19:22
wjohnstothe problem we are having is when we try to delete the course-skilldriver from the section19:22
ignasit sets up dependencies that prevent system groups from being deleted19:22
wjohnstoit comes up with an error19:22
wjohnstoalright, I will do that19:23
wjohnstothank you ignas19:24
ignasnot that I helped much ;)19:25
