*** menesis has joined #schooltool16:59
th1aAh, menesis.16:59
th1aYou're up when you're ready.17:00
menesisI was catching up with zope packages17:01
menesismore recent versions of external dependencies, mechanize and Chameleon, have been uploaded to Debian, and they are not compatible with my zope packages17:02
menesisfor mechanize, one workaround to our tests was needed17:02
menesisif you see a failure in login.txt, ignore it, or merge17:02
menesisChameleon is not very important, since schooltool does not use it17:03
menesisalthough I'd like to try17:03
menesisit is a template engine much faster than zope.pagetemplate17:03
menesisall our tests pass so it is ok17:03
menesisjust need to upload some more17:04
menesison schooltool side, nothing to say17:04
th1aI would like to know if Chameleon would work for us.17:04
menesisyes I am interested too, will try17:05
menesislooked at the gradebook crash reported on the weekend, fixed the crash, but left to aelkner to sort it out.17:07
menesisthe case when all sheets are hidden17:08
th1aThis guy may need a workaround:
menesissaw this, but did not investigate yet17:10
menesisI do not remember having any problems creating Activities with accented chars17:11
menesisbut will have a look17:12
th1aIt might be from the Category.17:12
th1aaelkner, ayt?17:12
menesislooks so17:13
menesisah, also tried to use the new feature in buildout 1.5, to use system-installed libraries like PIL, lxml, or reportlab17:14
menesisbut it did not work, neither with virtualenv, nor with system python17:14
th1aToo bad.17:15
menesiswanted this very much17:15
menesisbut it's too low level for me to understand17:15
menesisso gave up17:16
* menesis done17:16
th1aOK.  Thanks menesis.17:17
aelknerth1a, yes?17:27
th1aThere are some critical bugs I'd like you to get to this week.17:28
aelknerare they assigned to me yet?17:28
th1aWhat is your time frame on the loose ends?17:28
aelknera couple of days i think17:28
aelkneri see two critical bugs for me, so i'll get to those first17:29
th1aI'm going to give this to you too:
th1aCan you look at those today?17:29
aelkneri'll try to, kinda want to sort out the testing issues in case i need to get advise wed17:31
aelkneri can hold off solving the action buttons and security and switch to the bugs if you want me to17:31
aelknerthen wed i can give you details of the loose ends on the course worksheets17:32
th1aI'd rather you look at the critical bugs before finishing the other stuff.17:32
aelknerok, will do17:33
replaceafillth1a, just booked my flight17:38
replaceafillfeb 3, 16:51, national airport17:38
replaceafillfeb 11, 06:30, national airport17:38
replaceafillwe need to update our footers to 2012 :)18:07
th1aaelkner:  ayt?18:09
th1aI'm looking for the absences report under years (in flourish) and not seeing it.18:12
th1anever mind!18:13
th1aI see it!18:13
aelknerthat was easy :)18:13
th1aWell consider it a reminder that there is still work to be done on making finding reports intuitive.18:14
aelknermakes sense18:15

replaceafillLP is down? :(22:46
replaceafillssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host22:46
* replaceafill uses diffs to update the vps22:46
replaceafillth1a, ok, that was harder than i thought :)22:51
replaceafillInteger Field22:52
replaceafillI added "Tablets" as an example (used in Cambodia)22:52
replaceafillinteger fields have min-max constraints22:53
replaceafillth1a, also
replaceafillshould we display the "Demographics and other personal data" title in the General Information accordion22:54
replaceafillif the user doesnt have any demo data?22:55
th1aI don't think it is an issue.23:01
th1aNot worth making the documentation, etc. inconsistent.23:01
replaceafillthanks th1a, i'll request menesis and yvl to check my field changes before merging23:02
th1aIs having integer constraints an issue?23:02
replaceafillwell, it's needed in cambodia, and i asked yvl a while ago if i should put them in trunk and he said yes23:03
