replaceafillsorry about the delay16:38
th1aAlthough damp in general, I think.16:38

replaceafilltemporary solution16:39
replaceafillbut it stops the water a little16:39
th1aIs it still raining?  Is this the rainy season?16:39

th1aSome of replaceafill's perhaps.16:45
aelkneryvl, what about the timetable reimport  XLS bug16:45
th1areplaceafill probably has more crawling under his tarp too...16:46
yvlaelkner, can you remind me which one?16:47
yvl(in Lauchpad)16:47
aelkneractually, there sn't a bug report for it yet, but i mentioned it before16:47
aelknerall you have to do is import an XLS file, then reimport it, crash16:48

aelkneri finally got a hold of matt, so we got the live Data.fs installed in the test instance17:03
aelknerdavid can test the courseinfo stuff out without breaking the live instance17:04
aelknerthe ball is in his court now17:04
aelkneralso, i made progress on the niepa package, getting rid of the whole person package17:05
aelknerand putting back the app browser package with a flourish version of the school info view17:05
aelkneri'm currently working on the flourish versions of the two report requests17:05
aelkneri'd like to install it on the demo server and have you look at it with me17:06
aelkneris that ok, th1a?17:06
th1aHopefully there is not much to see.17:06
aelknersmall things, like labels that i could use your input on17:07
aelkneri'll email you when i have that set up17:07
aelkneri'm thinking that it would be good for our ability to support david ally17:07
aelknerif we had him use the demo instance at first17:08
aelknerthen, when he has an issue with something, we can look at it together17:08
th1aThat's ok.17:08
aelknerok, so first, i'll get your feedback, then i can send him a note asking him to look17:09
aelknerthat's it for me17:09
th1aI'm looking forward to wrapping that up, aelkner.17:09
th1aSo you can track my progress on documentation based on the nitpicky bugs I file.17:10
th1aSo expect more of those.17:10
th1aI've had enough of a break from actually looking at SchoolTool to be back to "wtf were we thinking?" on occasion.17:10
th1aAlso, I just noticed this:
th1aLook under "On the Rise."17:11
replaceafillOpen-Source SIS?17:12
th1aThat's a little more US university oriented, I think.17:12
