aelknerhey th1a16:16
aelknercan you do a bzr pull on the report card branch16:16
th1aLet me see...16:17
aelkneri'd like you to try out the gradebook for now16:18
aelkneri got the spreadsheet stuff to work16:18
aelknerand the description with roll-over feature16:18
* th1a is a little sleepy still...16:18
aelkneryou'll laugh, but i/m sleepy for the opposite reason16:19
aelknerat this point, i'm hoping you have a buildout that uses my report card branch for the gradebook16:20
aelknerbtw, i still have work to do on the report card (the course/teacher info part)16:21
aelknerbut i wanted you to check out the css and javasript of the gradebook16:22
aelknerand i added style to the report card to minimze the activity width and widen the course/teacher part16:22

th1aaelkner: Do you have the branch url?16:25
Lumiereth1a: did you see the xls import bug I put on lp?16:27
aelknerth1a:  bzr+ssh://
Lumiereth1a: early this week16:32
th1aWhich bug is it.16:35
aelknerth1a: haven16:36
aelknerhaven't you already set up the buildout for my branch?16:36
th1aOh, somewhere, probably.16:36
aelkneryou said something about not seeing the worksheet tabs16:36
th1aThat was in trunk.16:37
aelkneroh, forget abot trunk16:38
aelknerthat's always goign to be 'two weeks ago' code16:38
aelknerobviously there will be a release merge done, but if you wait for that16:39
aelkneryou won't have the chance to give me feedback that might16:39
aelknerresult in getting something fixed before the release16:39
th1aYes, well, 90% of the time I end up reporting bugs with my development environment when I start trying to get development branches running.16:41
aelknerwell, i don't know how else to get feedback from you before the release16:43
th1aThat's why I'm trying to get this to work.16:44
aelkneroh, ok16:45
aelknerso you can use the buildout instrructions that ignas made for developers16:46
aelknerand use the trunk branches for everything but the gradebook16:46
th1a    ConfigurationError: ('Invalid value for', 'package', 'ImportError: Module schooltool has no global gradebook_report_cards')16:46
aelkneri'll need you to give me the bzr info for schooltool, schooltool.lyceum.journal, schooltool.stapp2008spring16:48
aelknerand of course, i'm assuming you're using the report card branch i gave above16:49
th1aPerhaps you should go to bed, aelkner.16:49
aelkneram i inconveniencing you?16:50
aelkneror do you need more time to set up your sandbox16:50
aelknerok, i'll get into touch with you later this afternoon16:54
