yvlmenesis said he'll be online in 10 min15:35
th1aYou guys should probably read this:
th1aWe're not going to be taking any action on this stuff in the near future but it is good to know.15:38
th1aActually I've already mentioned most of it in one context or another.15:38
th1aOK, how are reports, yvl?15:38
yvlwell, I have two reports generating correctly15:39
yvlfixed some minor bugs15:39

yvlimprove error messages for users15:40
yvl(on traceback, on missing permisions, etc.)15:40
yvland I need to render something in the report request dialog15:40
yvlnow it just closes and you need to know where to find your report15:41
yvlwhich is home tab, there's a section Messages below personal info15:41
th1aDo we need personal info there at all?15:42
th1aCan we move that to a link in the left sidebar.15:42
th1aI guess it will just be oddly blank if you aren't a teacher.15:42
yvlalso true :)15:43
*** menesis has joined #schooltool15:43
yvlmaybe we can leave it there for now15:43
th1aI guess the accordion isn't that big.15:43
* menesis says hi15:43
th1aYeah, leave it.15:43
th1amenesis: hi.15:43
yvlso those are two main things15:44
yvland I also want to check with other reports15:44
yvlmaybe you could suggest something from gradebook or cando?15:44
th1aHow about a big one replaceafill?15:45

replaceafillthose are the slowest ones15:46
replaceafillthey're in virginia15:46
yvl ?15:47
replaceafillthey're registered for terms15:47
replaceafillthe VA ones are just tables with numbers15:48
replaceafill the skills completion report is a table with charts15:48

* yvl remembers, just wanted a recommendation on slow and important report15:51
replaceafillthe va completion ones have become way slower because of those totals :(15:52
yvlif they're slow enough, we can even add progress bars! :)15:52
th1areplaceafill: Ug.15:52

th1aAnything else menesis?16:05
menesisonly cando translation. others will get in when the next releases are made16:05
th1aOh, ok, yes.16:05
menesisthey run an older version, 2.3.1, probably on quantal. so either I need to make bugfix & translation release soon, or they have to install the translation manually16:07
menesisother than that I made more fixes to the buildbot on the new server16:08
menesisit runs more reliably16:09

replaceafillthey didn't on my way here :(16:17
replaceafillso i'm able to work for... 7 minutes16:17
replaceafillyvl, i have a question16:17
replaceafillon performance16:17
replaceafillsuppose i'm iterating students and counting16:17
replaceafillthins on them16:17
replaceafilli read somewhere than creating a list16:18
replaceafilland then using sum(...) was faster16:18
replaceafillthan setting a variable and do +=16:18
replaceafillany thoughts on that?16:18
replaceafill(that's the approach i used on virginia this time)16:18
replaceafilli checked performance (by just reloading pages...) and it was similar :)16:19
replaceafillam i disconnected again......16:20
yvlI don't think you'll win any perfomance there16:21
replaceafillah :)16:21
yvl(sorry /me was AFK for a moment)16:21
replaceafill(i'm just network paranoid this week)16:22
yvlif you did not iterate students at all, that could be a win :)16:22
replaceafill(that network at the hyatt sucks!)16:22
replaceafillyvl, what do you mean?16:22
replaceafill"not iterate students"?16:22
yvlcatalog or something ;)16:23
replaceafillwe'd need to index grades...16:23
replaceafilli'll live with it16:24
th1aIt might be necessary.16:24
yvlmaybe other time :)16:24
yvlin any case16:24
yvlprofile first :)16:24
* yvl doubts that the slowest part is adding numbers :)16:25
* replaceafill done16:26

th1aShould I be monitoring our PPA or will you tell me when the packages are ready, menesis?19:05
menesisth1a: I have uploaded virginia package, but it has not been built yet19:07
menesisI will update release notes soon19:08
menesisand should send an email?19:08
th1aYes.  Glenda's waiting.19:09
menesisbut it will take around an hour from now for the package to be built & copied to precise19:11
menesisreplaceafill: yes... I think it was caused by unfinished download being read. My attempt at fixing that is schooltool revision 354319:13
