th1ahi menesis, yvl.15:31
yvlgood afternoon15:31
th1areplaceafill is home and coming along.15:33
th1aResting this week.15:33
yvlgood to hear15:34
th1aHow are things coming, yvl?15:35
yvlspent most of my time on the missing events bug15:35
yvlfixed now15:35
th1aOh yes.  What caused that?15:36
yvlalso, as small bonus, when school preferences change, timetables are re-generated15:36
yvland stay in same timezone15:36
yvlin two places meeting dates were used without localization15:37
yvlwhen checking if should be displayed in journal15:37
yvland when generating up events from one or more section schedules to calendar15:38
yvlin certain timezones and certain times, it's not the same date as in UTC15:38
yvland events are always stored in UTC.15:39
th1aSo inconsistent use of localization was the underlying problem?15:39
yvlit's not a big fix and a small evolution15:40
yvljust takes time to track these down precisely15:40
th1aHave I ever mentioned how much I regret adding timezones to SchoolTool.15:40
th1a(this was back when we were also supposed to be making a standalone calendar server, so it made SOME sense)15:40
th1aYou don't even know how much this messed us up...15:41
yvlI heard stories ;)15:41
yvltimezones are difficult15:41
th1aI had some overconfident American developers at the time...15:42
yvlI hear there are only 3 timezones in USA :)15:42
th1aThe Lithuanians would be pessimistic about everything and the Americans over-optimistic.15:42
th1aOK.   ANYHOW.15:42
th1aAnything else yvl?15:42
yvlno, that's it15:43
yvlwanted to get this bug out of the way15:43
th1aYeah, it had to be done.15:43
th1aThanks yvl.15:45
th1a(this may be a quick one today...)15:45
menesisI took it easy and done little this week15:46
menesisupdated packaging branches so that trunk ppa versions are higher15:47
menesisso the timezone fixes will get picked up tonight15:48
menesisand I should probably push this bugfix to saucy15:49
menesisit's the last day before release15:49
menesisI have no other fixes15:49
th1aYeah, ok.15:49
menesisonly Spanish translation15:49
menesisupdated copyright year in the footer :)15:51
menesisand nothing else15:51
* menesis done15:51
th1aOK.  I'm going to try and get some fresh screenshots today.15:53
th1aI guess that's it.15:53
th1aOh, the meeting Friday with the special ed folks at the Virginia Department of Education went well.15:54
th1aThey're going to have to decide some basics, like if they're going to require all the counties to use the software or not.15:54
th1aSo who knows.15:54
th1aBut obviously having CanDo in CTE be a growing success helps.15:55
* yvl nods :)15:55
th1aOK, have a good week/end guys!15:56
th1aGood work on the release.15:56
th1aWe kept a saner schedule this time.15:56
