aksyvl: good morning06:26
aksyvl: ping07:15
aksyvl: ping me when you are back, I've the repository ready for you07:46
yvlpong, aks08:10
aksyvl: ah you're back08:25
aksyvl: check if you are able to access
yvlI can08:26
aksyvl: ok, i'll make a folder called "schooltool-f13" there, download all the content of the folder and host it somewhere08:27
aksyvl: let me know after you've done downloading all the files08:29
aksyvl: and after hosting it, let me know the location (http or ftp), so that I can update my documentation over gitorious to instruct how to use that repository file08:30
aksyvl: as replaceafill was interested in testing them, it would be better that we get the test results from him, so that I can upstream by spec files after ensuring that they work (at least they work for me)08:33
yvlgood idea, I'll notify him too08:33
*** replaceafill has joined #schooltool08:37
replaceafillyvl, u around?08:37
yvlhi replaceafill08:37
replaceafillhey man, just wanted to tell you that i tried the score refactoring branch08:37
replaceafillit's great :)08:37
replaceafillso much easier08:37
yvlthanks :)08:38
replaceafilli'm just having trouble with the remaining providedBy checks :(08:38
yvlI see08:38
yvlwell, some more refactoring wouldn't hurt, would it ;)08:38
replaceafillmostly the source attribute of linkedcolumns08:38
replaceafillgo go go!!!08:38
yvlbut it's easy to mess things up08:39
replaceafilli tried to set the source to None, trying to bypass the checks but i couldnt make it08:39
yvlI hoped that this would somehow not give you troubles08:39
aksreplaceafill: hello08:39
replaceafillbut it's definitely a more cleaner approach to insert new columns in the gradebook08:40
replaceafillhello aks08:40
replaceafillaks, i just installed fedora13 :)08:40
replaceafillwaiting to test your new rpms ;)08:40
aksreplaceafill: as you were interesting in testing my RPMs, yvl will shortly be hosting them08:40
aksreplaceafill: and then you can test, and please let me know if you find any bugs08:41
aksreplaceafill; :)08:41
replaceafillthanks aks, will do08:41
replaceafillaks, btw, are languages included in the packages?08:41
replaceafilli mean, like spanish?08:41
aksyvl, replaceafill: also I wanted to know if there is a programmatic/database approach in automatically adding users to schooltool08:41
aksreplaceafill: I've done just of nepali08:41
replaceafillaks, ah ok08:42
aksyvl, replaceafill: as in the OLPC eco-system, we use a tool called "idmgr" which registers every XO laptop and persists its data08:42
aksyvl, replaceafill: I wanted to automatically query idmgr and add the users to schooltool from there08:43
replaceafillaks, sorry, baby crying :)08:50
replaceafillaks, afaik schooltool doesn't have such a service08:50
aksreplaceafill: oh ok, is baby he or she?08:51
replaceafillshe :)08:51
aksreplaceafill: a proud father of a cute baby girl :)08:52
yvlaks, replaceafill
replaceafillwow! they're already in the schooltool server!!08:55
aksyvl: thanks, I'll now put instruction on how to use them08:55
* replaceafill wonders if fedora has a 'add-apt-repository' equivalent :P08:56
yvlguess... ;)08:56
aksyvl: can you please copy to folder?08:57
aksyvl: that's my GPG key I used to sign my packages and would be used to verify the packages, I'll also include the repo file in a while which will use that gpg key08:58
yvldone :)08:59
yvlreplaceafill, if anything -
replaceafillhey i got to the same doc :P09:00
yvlaye, ye matched me google skills .)09:00
aksyvl: also put in the same folder of that of the GPG key file09:01
aksyvl: now anyone who want to use our RPM repo, can download the schooltool.repo file, put in /etc/yum.repos.d/ directory, and try installing the package "schooltool-intervention", that's all09:01
yvlah, nice09:02
aksyvl: you need to put the gpg file and the repo file outside of the Fedora_13 directory09:02
yvlsorry, didn't know that09:02
aksyvl: np09:02
* replaceafill fires up his fedora vbox09:03
aksyvl: let me know after we are done. I'll populate my social media on the availability of the repo, so that we can attract other testers09:03
aksyvl: also putting the notification to the devel-list of the schooltool would be good09:04
replaceafillor users list?09:04
yvllooks ok?09:04
aksyvl: there is a spelling mistake in the repo file. It reads fedora_13.schooltoo.repo, you're missing the "l" in the schooltool09:06
aksreplaceafill: that' would be good too09:07

menesissome zope library depends on roman, but the module is included in docutils09:47
menesisso it does not have to be packaged separately09:48
menesisin Debian, python-docutils does create a python-roman binary package, but it does not contain an .egg-info file so is not useful.09:50
menesisI had to remove this dependency09:50
replaceafillpython-roman is for converting Roman numerals?!?!09:52
*** Aiste has joined #schooltool09:59
aksreplaceafill: I see, fixing the bug now, though it didn't come in mine10:12
menesisRoman numerals are sometimes used for page or section numbers10:14
aksreplaceafill: seems like yum fetched python-docutils from the mainstream fedora repo10:19
aksreplaceafill: I've removed the from my docutils packaging though10:19
yvlaks, are you going to update hosted rpms?10:24
*** aks has quit IRC10:29
*** aks has joined #schooltool10:31
aksyvl: ping10:31
aksyvl: you'll have to get replace the repodata folder and the schooltool-1.5.1-1.fc13.noarch.rpm from the source to the hosted folder10:31
yvlwill do10:32
aksyvl: thanks10:32
replaceafillok guys, bed time for me :)10:32
yvlgoodnight, replaceafill10:33
aksreplaceafill: after yvl updates the folder, can you please try installing it again "yum -y install schooltool-intervention"?10:33
replaceafillyvl, let me know if you decide to take the refactoring further to test it ;)10:33
replaceafillaks, will do10:33
yvlok :)10:33
aksreplaceafill: thanks for cutting down your sleeping time for it ;)10:33
replaceafillaks, anytime ;)10:33
*** replaceafill has quit IRC10:33
aksyvl: it would be better to use rsync so that it is updated everytime10:34
yvlyes, that's exactly what I was thinking ;)10:35
aksyvl: have you updated?10:47
yvlsorry, not yet10:48
yvlwill do in 20 mins, if it's ok?10:48
aksyvl: no prob, do it when you're free10:48
yvlaks, done12:10
yvlumm, wait, not done yet12:16
yvlalmost done :)12:16
aksyvl: ok12:21
aksyvl: now we require a few volunteers to test12:22
aksyvl: did you do rsync?12:22
yvlno, just wget to my machine, then rsync to schooltool.org12:22
aksyvl: I wonder if rsync works for http:// and ftp://12:23
yvlonly ssh, AFAIK12:24
yvlumm, only shell, to be more precise12:24
yvlrsh works as fine ;)12:24
aksyvl: shall I give you an account on my server so that you can ssh?13:09
