th1ahi menesis, yvl, replaceafill.16:32
yvlgood morning :)16:32
replaceafillgood morning/afternoon16:32
th1aOK, yvl, have I completely confused/annoyed you?16:34
yvlactually no :)16:34
th1aI confused myself.16:34
yvlin any case, things you reported are mostly bugs16:35
yvlalso you noticed the ranged score system is used for journal16:35
yvland now that I think of it, it should not be16:35
replaceafilli liked that :(16:36
yvlit just adds another score system to play16:36
yvland custom discrete value score system is actually a superset of ranged values16:37
yvlwe should just use custom score system then16:37
yvland by default keep the 1-10 scale16:37
th1aYou mean allow any custom score system in the journal?16:38
th1aNo restriction.16:38
yvlwell, yes16:38
yvlthey do have "point value" or how thats called16:38
th1aBut you can also do a ranged score system?16:39
yvlwell, manually - yes16:39
yvlwhat do you mean by "do"?16:40
yvlwe do have it implemented, but were not using it anymore16:40
yvlso the views for creating and viewing it were gone16:40
th1aI should probably look at the score systems page.16:40
th1aOh, so you can't actually explicitly create one in the Score Systems page.16:41
th1aYou just create them on the fly in the gradebook.16:41
yvlwell, on schooltool start up16:41
yvlbut yes16:41
yvlI had a very slow day today, so didn't push all of the fixes16:42
th1aSo 10 points is/should be a ranged score system.16:42
yvl* didn't write the fixes16:42
th1aI mean, it is/should be a discrete score system.16:42
yvlthat would probably make sense16:44
yvlthen again16:44
yvladding 100 points would be a lot of clicking in UI :)16:44
th1aLet's assume 10 would be the max.  ;-)16:44
yvlok :)16:44
th1aRealistically you aren't going to be entering numbers in there that require calculation, right?16:45
th1aMore than one significant digit.16:45
yvlI don't think so16:45
yvlat least not more calculation than already can be done with custom discrete score systems16:46
yvlthey have point value and low percentage16:46
th1aOK, now what do you think about the homeroom/period attendance issue?16:47
th1aDo I remember that correctly?16:47
yvlI remember it that way16:47
yvloh, and mock-up by Douglas looked very nice16:48
th1aI think it is reasonable.16:48
yvlmaybe we just could add a hint somewhere that top score is school attendance16:49
yvllike the day/period16:49
yvltop left corner of the gradebook16:50
yvl* journal16:50
yvlalso I'd rather make homeroom attendance read-only in this view16:50
th1aDefinitely read only.16:50
th1aWe'll probably make it gray or something too.16:50
* replaceafill was thinking similar to the excel/calc notes indicator16:51
th1aI figured we'd work that out after we got it working at all.16:51

th1ayvl: Do you want to go ahead and implement the split cells?16:53
yvlthis means... I'll start working on enrollment / statuses on Mon16:56
yvland that gives us roughly 4 weeks to get them done16:56
yvlwell, 3.5 weeks16:57
th1aSounds doable.16:58
th1areplaceafill can finish fine tuning the attendance view.16:58
yvland go over reports with you16:58
yvlthey do need upgrading16:59
th1aWe have plenty to do with those.16:59
*** bigbrovar_ has quit IRC17:00
*** bigbrovar_ has joined #schooltool17:00
th1aOK.  Moving on then?17:01
th1aThanks yvl.17:02
replaceafilli checked the differences between our pdf colors and vinny's guidelines17:03
replaceafilli used page 15 of the guidelines as base17:03
replaceafill(as we discussed yesterday with th1a)17:03
replaceafillth1a also noticed i was missing the ubuntu font in the comments17:04
replaceafilland i realized why17:04
th1aDo you know how the colors became different in the first place?17:04
replaceafillyvl, could i get your opinion on this change please:17:04
replaceafillth1a, not really17:04
th1aOK, just wondering.17:05
replaceafillyvl, that change allows us to set a paragraph type on the converted rml17:05
replaceafillso i can do:17:05
replaceafillview = getMultiAdapter(...)17:05
*** bigbrovar_ has quit IRC17:05
replaceafillview.paragraph_style = 'foo'17:05
*** bigbrovar_ has joined #schooltool17:06
replaceafilland i think doesn't affect existing value/@@html2rml calls17:06
yvlreplaceafill, looks good17:06
replaceafillah great, i'll go ahead and use it then17:07
replaceafillth1a, i hope to be done with this this afternoon17:08
* replaceafill done17:08
th1aOK.  Ping me and we'll go through the next round of refinement.17:08
replaceafillth1a, kk17:08
th1areplaceafill: Do you have a new report card layout form in your branch?17:09
replaceafillth1a, no, it's still the old one17:10
replaceafillwith the two different item types17:10
th1aOK.  We should probably focus on that next.  I'm thinking we want to hard wire some journal/attendance options in there.17:10
replaceafillth1a, ah ok17:11
replaceafilli do remember experimenting with that view before, i'll look for that change17:12
th1aWe'll talk about it later.17:12
th1aOK, menesis?17:13
menesisI have made three bugfix releases that were ready last week17:13
menesistried the latest journal17:14
menesiscommitted a fix for absent and excused columns17:14
menesisat first I got an error on evolution17:15
menesis'h' is not a valid score17:16
menesisadded a try/catch to ignore them17:16
*** bigbrovar_ has quit IRC17:18
yvldidn't I commit that?17:19
menesisnot in evolution17:19
menesiselsewhere, yes17:20
yvlturns out no17:20
yvlthanks for catching this, menesis17:20
menesisfixed one buildbot error. but I still can't make it work to watch many branches and kick off builds :(17:20
menesisand that's all17:21
menesisnothing interesting.17:21
th1aOK, cool.17:21
th1aSince I don't have enough money to pay you full time menesis, we need to have some slow periods.17:22
th1aAnd this time of year we're probably all feeling a little slow.17:22
menesisI never worked full time, you know17:22
* yvl plans to pick up speed this month :)17:23
th1amenesis:  I know.17:23
menesisthere are many things to do17:23
menesisbut I'm either slow, or17:24
menesisnow have two other projects on me17:24
th1aI'm just... you don't have to apologize for not doing much occasionally.  And sometimes it seems a little weird for me to be like "Oh, it is ok if you don't work menesis."17:24
th1aOdd management style.  ;-)17:24
th1aWe both understand the situation.17:24
th1aJust repeating the obvious occasionally when you're 8 time zones away doesn't hurt.17:25
th1aOK, thanks menesis.17:26
th1aThanks guys.17:26
th1aHave a good week/end.17:26
th1aTomorrow is a holiday here but I'll be around.17:26
* th1a drops the bag of gravel.17:27
yvlthanks guys17:29
replaceafillthanks everybody17:29
