replaceafillgood... evening?22:00
th1aIt is indeed evening.22:00
th1aI am sleepy.22:01
th1aOK, I checked in a new page.22:01
th1aDid you get a chance to look at:
replaceafillno sorry, not yet22:02
th1aI'm just wondering if it is a python rounding integers thing.22:03
th1aOr it could be the way we intended it at the time.22:03
th1aI really don't know what the "right" answer is.22:03
th1aProbably most people would assume rounding (up).22:04
replaceafilli'm going to try to reproduce22:04
replaceafillmaybe we could take the chance to take weights unnecessary code out of the way?22:05
th1aAnyhow, we can table that for the moment if you want.22:06
replaceafillsure, i'll take a closer look after the meeting22:07
replaceafilland now i've started to fix test helpers22:07
th1aThat fits in the category of things to squeeze in because it shouldn't be complicated...22:07
replaceafillso at some point at least the selenium tests should pass again22:07
replaceafilli made the changes we discussed22:09
th1aOh... Enrolled should be Active, right?22:10
replaceafillah! true22:10
replaceafillit is in the code ;)22:10
th1a"Enrolled" might have somewhat different meanings, too.22:11
replaceafillthe issue i mentioned yesterday breaks some gradebook views though22:11
replaceafillsince the teacher can't access, for example history of the student22:11
replaceafilland so on22:11
th1aIf we just let them have permission, nobody will complain for a long time if ever.22:12
replaceafilli think we should22:13
th1aFine with me.22:14
replaceafillcool, i'll modify that crowd then22:14
replaceafillso, as i was saying22:14
replaceafilli started cleaning tests22:14
replaceafillnow that the relationship views are more stable22:14
replaceafillwhat's next?22:16
th1aThen transcripts.22:16
replaceafillthe Spreadsheet example was no good :(22:17
replaceafill(for our purposes)22:17
th1aWe just need a grid.22:17
th1aIt is kind of hard not to make it seem more complicated than it is...22:18
th1aOr maybe it is more complicated than it should be...22:18
replaceafillaccording to my notes i can start with the teacher employment states22:20
replaceafillsince we'll need that22:20
replaceafillwhat about this meeting with David?22:21
replaceafillabout the report card22:21
th1aOh, he wants to install the report, basically.22:21
th1aI thought we should just have a chat about it.22:21
th1aInstead of sending a bunch of emails.22:22
replaceafillno date/time set yet, right?22:22
th1aRight.  He'll probably email early tomorrow.22:22
replaceafillnigeria will be easy with this kind of spec:22:23
replaceafill"Number and Street (3 lines)"22:23

*** khildin has quit IRC22:25

replaceafillhow can we handle?22:26
replaceafill"D.8 Head Teacher and Assistant Head Teacher (2 people)"22:26
replaceafilllike dropdowns22:26

th1aFor the grants, maybe just have an add button that lets you enter the info in a dialog?22:27

replaceafillat least at first22:30
th1aYeah... see how aelkner had it.22:30
