th1ahi yvl, replaceafill, aelkner.16:30
yvlgood morning16:30
*** ignas has quit IRC16:30
replaceafillgood morning/afternoon16:30
th1aWould you like to start replaceafill?16:31
replaceafilli worked on the book16:32
replaceafilland used a jquery plugin for showing screenshots16:32
*** menesis has joined #schooltool16:33
* menesis hi 16:33
th1aQuestion for the audience...16:33
th1aNow that we're scaling the screenshots with expanded pop-up views,16:34
th1acan I just make them all the same size (full screen).16:34
menesisreplaceafill: nice work on the book16:34
th1aThis would save me a lot of time but require more clicking by the user.16:35
replaceafillmenesis, thanks :)16:35
replaceafillth1a, according to the guidelines:16:35
replaceafillSize: 864x544px16:35
th1aAlso, are you guys ok with the font size?16:35
th1areplaceafill:  Hm...16:35
replaceafillth1a, although i don't know if that applies in this case16:35
menesisI think for the book the font is too small16:36
th1aI think I can get one of my monitors to about that size.16:36
replaceafillmenesis, +!16:36
th1areplaceafill: I guess you were following the UWG on the font size?16:36
replaceafill12px font-size16:36
th1aI think it could be a bit bigger, but doesn't need to be as big as it was before maybe.16:36
replaceafilli even added little margins between paragraphs, because of the small font16:37
replaceafillth1a, 14px maybe?16:37
th1aWhat did we have before?  16?16:37
menesisth1a: you only need browser window of that size. Alt+prtsc takes screenshot of the window only16:38
th1amenesis:  Yes, but do you know how to set the browser to that size?16:39
replaceafilldeveloper tools plugin?16:39
th1aI guess I can ask Google...16:39
menesisReally, no.16:40
th1areplaceafill:  Try 14pt then.16:40
replaceafillcool i'll change the css and show it to you after the meeting16:40
menesiswininfo program can be used to measure size of windows16:41
th1aWhat's next replaceafill?16:42
replaceafillunless you want me to change something else on the book?16:43
th1aSo I'll also probably be pulling you off bugs to work on the homepage.16:43
th1aWhich we should have a draft of today.16:43
replaceafillthe homepage16:43
th1aSo we may need to shift some of your bugs.16:44
th1aWe'll see what yvl and aelkner's status is.16:44
th1aThanks replaceafill.16:44
yvlso I fixed a few bugs16:45
yvlincluding calendar events16:45
yvland a problem with modal dialogs16:45
yvl(and added open_modal_form to flourish.js for replaceafill  :) )16:46
* replaceafill goes look16:46
yvlmenesis found some new bugs - with reimport and broken links to journal16:46
yvlI did some testing today...16:46
yvlwe have problems with setting up a new year16:46
yvlfor example, try adding a section for a year that is not active16:47
menesisJournal security is messed up i guess. Not usable for students, at least16:47
yvlwell that16:47
yvland "remembering last visited section" does not work 100%16:48
th1aWhat's the issue with journal security?  Is there a bug for that?16:48
yvland Gradebook tab is throwing tracebacks in some scenarios16:48
replaceafilli've been having that bug "in progress" for a while now, maybe i can finish it today16:48
replaceafill(the journal view for students)16:48
* yvl done16:49
yvland I'd like too look into those this week :)16:50
yvlunless there are more important bugs16:50
yvlnow I'm done.16:50
* th1a is very confused when people just mention bugs here. Are these things you discovered? Filed? Fixed? Threw your hands up and sighed over?16:50
th1aI pretty much read them as the latter unless otherwise specified.16:51
yvlremembering last section and gradebook tab tracebacks are not filed16:52
menesisMost are reported16:52
yvlothers are16:52
menesisBut the latter is also true16:52
th1aJust try to be more specific.16:53
th1aIt isn't that I WANT menesis to stop what he is doing and immediately try to fix every bug he finds, in fact the opposite.16:54
th1aAnyway, those sound like good things to work on, yvl.16:54
menesisYeah I was debugging yesterday, but could not find problems or solutions16:55
th1aThanks yvl.16:55
menesisI tried to make flourish available for lucid. Works in maverick, needs some libraries backported to lucid16:55
th1aI'd also just mention that LP has actually improved for quick bug reporing.16:56
menesisAlso daily builds16:56
menesisNot finished16:56
menesisAlso some testing, bugs, investigation16:57
menesisNothing important springs to mind16:58
yvlthanks for great bug reports btw, menesis16:58
menesisOh, finished sync from Debian16:58
* th1a is more complaining about vagueness on IRC than actual poor performance.16:59
th1aSo yes, thanks menesis for your good QA work of late.16:59
menesisThat's it17:00
th1aNo land mines in our path?17:00
menesisNo. Maybe in precise, but that is for  later.17:02
th1aOK, thanks menesis.17:02
aelkneri fixed a couple bugs17:03
aelknerone was adding the Report menu item to the student menu in the gradebook17:04
th1aYeah, can we see that?17:04
aelknerteacher001, same for password17:05
aelknerthe view looks the exact same as the student's mygrades view17:06
aelknerexcept that it just has a Done button rather than the tertiary nav the student has17:06
th1aLooks good.17:07
aelkneri still haven't learned how to selenium test, so there aren't any functional tests for it17:07
aelkneri also need to do functional tests for /report_sheets17:07
aelknershould i do that next?17:08
th1aWell... what about other bugs?17:08
aelknerdo you have any mind for me?17:09
aelknerin mind17:09
th1aIf only we had some kind of system for assigning bugs.17:10
th1aAnd giving them priorities.17:10
aelkneri have a whole assigned to me, none of them make sense though17:10
aelknerexcept the two that are the same the jelkner asked for a student report17:11
aelkneri think he's saying a pdf17:11
th1aIf only we had some time when we could get together and discuss things like bugs and what they mean.17:11
aelknerif only17:11
*** menesis1 has joined #schooltool17:11
*** menesis has quit IRC17:11
*** menesis1 is now known as menesis17:11
*** AndChat- has joined #schooltool17:11
yvlI was just going to paste that one, replaceafill ;)17:11
replaceafillyvl, :D17:12
th1aAlso, I think a lot of your bugs are fixed aelkner but you haven't updated them.17:12
*** AndChat- has quit IRC17:12
th1aSo that doesn't help.17:12
th1aActually quite a few.17:12
aelknerok, i can clean that up, too, what about the student pdf?17:12
th1aAh, yes the average column didn't get triaged.17:13
th1aYes, do that one first.17:13
aelknerchanged to Critical17:14
aelknerand the pdf?17:14
th1ajelkner really just needs the html view for now.17:14
aelknerwell, his explanation had to do with bringing paper to a meeting17:15
th1aI talked to him on the phone -- it is possible to print a web page.17:15
th1aThat is enough for now.17:15
th1aActually, does the current view do #2 on his list?  If not, it should.17:16
aelknerso i'll change it from Critical to High17:16
aelknerah, no17:17
aelknerjust the worksheet17:17
th1aAdd that to both, and then make it "fix committed."17:17
* th1a does not understand aelkner's mental model of how our bug tracker works.17:17
th1aAnd vice versa presumably.17:18
aelkneri can't make a change to status when i don't understand the issue17:18
aelkneri guess you're saying i should add a comment when i don't understand17:19
th1aWell, that.17:19
th1aBut also if you're finished working on a given bug then you should close it.17:19
aelkneranyway, i'll do more updates to my bugs, including comments for those that i don't know what to do with17:20
th1aAnyhow... I guess you know what to work on next, aelkner?17:20
aelkneri guess :)17:21
th1aAll righty then.17:22
th1aThanks aelkner.17:22
th1aI believe we're done.17:22
