th1ahi menesis, replaceafill, yvl.16:31
yvlgood morning guys :)16:31
replaceafillgood morning/afternoon16:31
th1aSo, where are we menesis?16:34
menesisschooltool 2.4.0 and plugins have been released, uploaded, and accepted to raring16:35
menesisI have found the reason why reports failed to generate with z3c.rml 2.0.0 / reportlab 2.616:36
menesisand fixed it16:36
menesison Friday. so I was one day late, but it got accepted.16:37
th1aYeah, it didn't work for me on raring but I see it has been updated.16:37
menesisone thing I forgot is to upload the latest book16:37
th1aSo I'll check.16:37
menesiswill do that shortly16:38
menesisI haven't released latest virginia yet16:38
menesisand there are dependency problem with 2.4 packages on precise/quantal as reported on Answers16:39
menesisbut it's simple, I have to re-add one patch16:40
th1aIt looked simple.16:40
menesisone potential problem is a too-high z3c.form version in raring, two tests fail with it.16:41
menesisbut I couldn't find any issues while running schooltool on ubuntu16:42
menesisso the release is out16:43
menesisI will update the release notes, and do other things mentioned, today.16:44

yvlwell, I'd written that a tiny bit differently16:48
* replaceafill listens16:48
yvlself.before = getattr(unproxied, 'before', () )16:48
yvllooks nicer ;)16:48
replaceafillkk, will fix16:49

replaceafillthe refresh button is giving me an unauthorized16:50
replaceafilli mean, i see a login form in the dialog16:50
replaceafillsomething related to (schooltool.view, task, and failed attribute)16:51
yvlwhen you wrote the cando report task16:51
yvldid you add security declarations?16:51
replaceafilland i noticed remote task declare the failed attribute in the interface16:51
replaceafilllet me see something quickly16:52

replaceafillthe pto messages from 13:41 are the ones that generated the successful report16:56

replaceafillUnauthorized: (<schooltool.cando.browser.gradebook.SkillsGradebookReportTask object at 0xb076398>, 'failed', 'schooltool.view')17:03
replaceafillthere's the security zcml17:04
replaceafillth1a, in other news, i'm still working on the report card17:05
replaceafilland i have a question for you17:05
replaceafillin the style bible (version 5), there are 2 versions of the report card17:05
replaceafillone in page 2, and one in page 1317:06
th1aWe can talk about this after the meeting.17:06
replaceafilli've started with page 1317:06
replaceafillah sure17:06
replaceafilljust to finish my report:17:06
th1aWe really need to be talking about these reports more.17:06
replaceafilli found an issue with comments17:06
replaceafillsubmitting a comment deletes other grades that you haven't saved17:07
replaceafilli just thought it might be surprising for a user17:07
replaceafilland i'm not sure if it has been reported yet17:07
replaceafillsuppose you have 5 activities17:07
replaceafilland you start grading a student in all of them17:07
replaceafilland the comment is the third column17:08
replaceafillwhen you hit Submit in the comment dialog, the previous scores (which haven't been saved yet) are lost17:08
th1aYeah, that's a pretty major bug.17:08
replaceafillok, i'll report it17:09
th1aMaybe you should just fix it first.17:09
* replaceafill done17:09
replaceafillah ok17:09
th1aThanks replaceafill.17:09
yvlpushed the worksheet scores report17:10
yvlworked on failures by term and absences17:10
yvlwill push at some point17:10
yvlalso pushed some small changes to core17:11
yvlfor example fake virtual host root in fake reuqest17:11
yvlso that absolute url would not throw up17:11
yvllooked at ldap question I missed17:11
yvlit can be implemented relatively fast, but I assume - not now.17:12
yvltried to reproduce the bug replaceafill just showed17:12
yvlbut for some reason it did not resurface after... something I did :)17:12
th1aYeah... you just need to give the LDAP guy some kind of response.17:12
* yvl did today17:12
yvlI now have hunches how to reproduce the bug and where to look17:13
yvlit's good that we have some slower reports17:13
yvlhelps ;)17:13
th1aYeah.  ;-)17:14
replaceafillwho needs catalogs?!?!?17:14
yvlreplaceafill, when we start getting DB conflicts because of things falling in same catalog btree buckets... ;)17:15
yvl(too quickly)17:15
yvlthis is actually something we would need to test at a bigger activity site17:15
yvlor just simulate it17:15
yvlso basically that's it from me17:16
yvllooking at remaining reports...17:16
replaceafillyvl, now that i know how to pass params to a remote requests17:16
yvlthere's not that much left actually17:16
replaceafilli think i could try to make the virginia completion report remote17:17
yvlthat would be cool17:17
replaceafill(not a priority, but will do)17:17
yvlnearest plans: push the two reports tomorrow17:18
yvlfind and fix the breakage replaceafill demonstrated today17:18
yvlwhat next?17:18
th1aWould that make all the reports remote then?17:19
yvlnot yet.17:19
th1aThat's the next milestone, essentially.17:20
yvlok, let's go through each one separately17:20
yvlID cards - replaceafill or me? :)17:20
replaceafillyou yvl17:20
th1ayvl should definitely do the ones that already have the style update.17:20

yvl... ?17:22
yvlme then.17:23
th1aYes, I suppose we do want to do that async.17:23
th1aHadn't thought of that, but it could take a while.17:23
menesisSkills Export takes a very long time17:23
yvlSkills Export XLS, school wide17:23
th1ayvl should probably take the xls's.17:24
yvlbtw, progress bars should be added for those17:24
yvlthey take time17:24
yvlthe rest... is CanDo and VA PDFs17:25
yvloh, and the large XML :)17:25
yvlwell, the small XML for the person17:25
yvllet's ignore it :D17:25
th1aThe person xml should just go away.17:25
yvlso replaceafill - Student Report Cards, Sutdent Detail Reports, CanDo and VA reports ?17:26
th1aFeel free to execute it, yvl.17:26
* yvl XLSes and the rest17:26

th1aThat's an awkward conversation.17:39

th1areplaceafill:  Are you ready?18:17
replaceafillth1a, yes18:17
