replaceafillhey th1a18:45
replaceafilli just tested the export/import for what David wants to do18:45
th1aHow are things coming?18:45
replaceafillit works18:45
th1aOh... to change the sections/courses?18:45
replaceafilli'm sick btw18:46
replaceafilli'm going to update the demo for him to see18:46
th1aand we have mark mcdougall's mess.18:47
replaceafillah yes18:47
replaceafillthat's next :)18:47
th1aThat's more than a little exasperating.18:48
replaceafillwe can recommend either:18:48
replaceafill1. if he wants to stick with 2.7dev, menesis already fixed that evolution bug18:48
replaceafillso if a new package has been built already (i'll check) he just needs to upgrade18:48
replaceafill2. revert to the dev version18:48
replaceafillfor this i hope he has some backups18:48
th1aIsn't a backup created whenever you upgrade anyhow?18:49
th1aI'd prefer to get him off trunk.18:49
replaceafillah ok18:49
menesisI am preparing answers to mark now18:49
replaceafillthanks menesis!18:50
menesishe is stuck with a month-old snapshot18:50
menesisso he either upgrades to trunk properly18:50
menesisor downgrades to 2.618:50
menesisI just tested xls export from trunk18:50
menesisand import to 2.618:50
menesisit worked! except one thing18:51
menesisContactRelationship sheet has changed format18:51
menesisinstead of 'parent' cell now are two cells '2010-09-01','p'18:51
menesisdeleted that sheet and import succeeded18:52
menesisso I hope he can get back to 2.6 and not lose data18:52
th1athanks menesis.18:57
replaceafillthe grades are lost th1a18:58
replaceafilllet me double check my sheet18:59
th1aI was wondering about that...18:59
replaceafillsheet is correct19:06
replaceafillthe section "moves" to the new course19:06
replaceafillbut the report grades are empty19:06
th1aOK... so you export, change the sheet, reimport on the existing instance, but lose the grades in the switch?19:11
th1aAny clue as to why?19:12
replaceafillwell, for starters the new course has now course worksheets imported19:13
replaceafilland even if it did19:15
replaceafillthe id's are going to be different19:15
replaceafillfor the new courses19:15
replaceafilland the deployed report sheets19:15
th1aIt might be easier to just hack the report for him?19:15
replaceafilli was going to suggest that ;)19:15
th1aOK, I'm fine with tat.19:15
replaceafilli wonder about his setup though19:15
th1aI mean, the generic version was very much worth doing and releasing.19:15
replaceafillis he already using course worksheets?19:16
replaceafillwe can create a new version19:16
replaceafilland keep the generic version19:16
replaceafillthey're easy installable/uninstallable anyway19:16
th1aOK, I have to make dinner.19:17
th1aThanks replaceafill.19:17
replaceafillthanks th1a19:18
