IRC log of #schooltool for Thursday, 2014-02-06

th1aActually, maybe you'd better set up a trunk instance for me.00:00
replaceafillth1a, ah ok00:07
th1aFrom re-reading my initial notes on this -- they'll definitely need statuses.00:08
replaceafillwith all the plugins?00:08
replaceafillon it00:10
th1aOK... we're going to have to discuss this census document on Friday.00:17
th1aJust give it a skim.00:18
th1aIt is 91 pages...00:19
replaceafillpage 2500:22
replaceafilldata to be collected00:22
th1aThe XML stuff is here:
th1aTo be clear, this would be paid work...00:25
replaceafilli hope we get it00:27
th1aThey probably have a reasonable budget... they aren't doing open source because they're broke.00:27
th1aIt is a little daunting at first though, trying to wrap your head around another developed country's system.00:28
th1aA little more complex than Nigeria's.00:28
replaceafill2.7.0dev on everything00:32
th1aOK, thanks replaceafill.00:32

replaceafillth1a, you around?19:32
th1ahi replaceafill.19:32
replaceafilli have a question19:33
replaceafilli identified the problem with instructor/student propagation19:33
replaceafillin linked sections19:33
replaceafillthe event is fired too soon19:33
replaceafilland without the proper state information19:33
replaceafillhere's the behaviour i've added so far:19:34
replaceafillif you have a four term section19:34
replaceafilland you set someone as instructor under the state "Substitue"19:34
replaceafillthat should propagate, right?19:34
replaceafillthen, on a later date you change his state in the Q3 section19:35
replaceafillto Withdrawn19:35
th1aWell, substitute is kind of a special case.19:35
replaceafillwe don't remove him anymore from Q419:35
replaceafillmy point here is that we don't remove people from relationships entirely19:35
replaceafillwe just set a different state for them19:35
replaceafillso if i change him to Withdrawn in Q319:36
replaceafillthat should cascade as Withdrawn to Q419:36
replaceafillthat's what i've implemented now19:36
replaceafillsame for students19:36
replaceafillwe "could" delete the information entirely19:36
th1aWell, it is ultimately a question of business logic.19:36
replaceafillbut that service is not available yet19:36
th1aJust propogating is fine for now.19:37
th1aSome people will think it is not perfect, but it is not wrong.19:37
replaceafilli can see someone at some point asking us to completely "remove" the state from the relationship19:38
replaceafilllike "i made a mistake and all i can do is to withdraw the student"19:38
th1aBut it is fine for now.19:39
replaceafillwe're talking autism tomorrow, right?19:39
th1aI don't think there's too much to talk about there.19:40
th1aIt is the English XML that I need to get my head around.19:40
replaceafilli was just wondering when are we going to start that?19:40
replaceafillshould i start this weekend for example?19:41
th1aDefinitely not.  They need it by may.19:41
th1aAnd they don't definitely have the money.19:42
replaceafillok, but if this is sielibre work i should start early in my "free" time19:42
th1aOK, I have to go get dinner on the table.19:42
replaceafillthanks th1a19:42
th1aThank you replaceafill.19:42
