yvlthat's the way to go15:36
th1aI'm fine with it.15:36
th1aAlthough we should also view this as a warning...15:37
replaceafillso i was thinking of having the old instance up so steven can compare15:38
replaceafillwith the new/evolved one15:38

menesisI have catched up package versions with what is in trusty/unstable15:47
menesisonly minor updates15:47
menesisuploaded a couple packages15:47
menesisincluding to trusty15:47
menesiswas not possible at the time I've packaged it15:48
menesishave been answering questions15:48
menesiswhere schooltool 2.6 does not start or does not generate reports15:49
menesisit helped15:49
th1aYes, thanks for that.15:49
menesisbut I can't draw any conclusions why it didn't work in the first place15:50
menesisor what needs fixing15:50
th1aI need to put a "What if SchoolTool doesn't start/generate reports page prominently in the book.15:50
th1aservice schooltool status for starters, right?15:50
menesisyes, and where to look for log files15:50
menesisalso dealt with random bugs at the top of my inbox15:51
menesisbut they are fixed long ago15:51
menesisdon't think I fixed any the last few days15:51
menesistoday was converting ID Cards repot to flourish style15:52
th1aSend me one when it is ready.15:53
menesisI think only header/footer needs changing15:54
menesisbut it does not render yet so will see15:54
* menesis done15:55
menesislong weekend15:55
th1aOK, thanks menesis.15:56
th1aI want to make sure we get these post-release bugs cleaned up asap.15:56
th1aI think we may all need to pause for a bug day or two.15:56
th1amenesis just found this:
th1aShould I give it to yvl?15:57
replaceafilli could take that15:57
yvlI don't mind :)15:57
replaceafillah ok :)15:57
replaceafillit sounds like just zcml changes, right?15:58
th1ayvl it is.15:58
yvlah, was about to ask to mark them critical :)15:59
* th1a is looking at recent bugs...15:59
replaceafill for me?16:00
th1aLooking at this one...16:00
th1aHm... maybe I should test that.16:01
th1aI'll check it.16:01
th1amenesis, in this
th1ahypothetically just a clean paste.ini would have fixed it?16:04
menesisyes. it seems there was some junk at the end of the file16:05
th1abut in general if you want to "reinstall" schooltool but keep your data, you're talking about an apt-get purge?16:05
th1aThat is, blow away the configuration and packages.16:05
menesiswell yes, purge would also delete the data16:06
menesisand I have not warned about that16:06
menesisdid not remember what command would allow to restore config file to original state16:08
menesisrm -r /etc/schooltool16:09
th1aOK, also, yvl, I need to make a bug for Pujendra's homeroom bug, which I confirmed.16:11
th1aThat will be yours and also critical.16:11
yvlof course16:11
yvllet me check if I can reproduce it16:13
yvl(as in - if  I understand the bug :) )16:13
th1aI did the quickest case I could and it didn't work.16:14
th1aSo it doesn't appear to require anything exotic.  Let me know if you don't see it and I'll note the steps.16:14
th1aI think that's all the new ones, other than waiting for more logs, etc. to figure out why SchoolTool isn't starting for some people.16:16
*** menesis has quit IRC16:17
th1aOK... So I guess we don't have any new bugs for replaceafill.16:18
replaceafilli can look at my critical ones16:18
replaceafilli have a few16:18
th1aThat's what I'm doing...16:19
th1aYeah, let's take care of those.16:19
th1aOK.  I think that's it.16:20
th1aThanks guys.16:20
