th1areplaceafill: The 2.4 to 2.6 upgrade can take a while, right?19:47
replaceafillth1a, yes, i think so19:47
th1aWell, maybe I'm thinking of the CanDo migration.19:48
replaceafilloh, i thought you meant cando too :D19:49
th1aThe people in Thailand seem to be waiting for that.19:50
th1aBut I don't think they use CanDo.19:50
replaceafillth1a, the book is for 2.8 now, right?19:56
replaceafilli think it's a little out of date19:56
th1aProbably... I don't really maintain that part.19:57
replaceafilli'll update it19:58
replaceafillwe'll need a second instance (and probably more) for ark19:58
replaceafilli wonder if we can convert long lines in the book to 79 column width paragraphs automatically...20:05
replaceafilli'll check it later ;)20:06

th1aHi replaceafill.22:01
replaceafillhey th1a22:01
th1aHow are things coming?22:02
replaceafillgood, i'm dealing with packaging the zrs configuration22:02
replaceafilltoday i discovered that the conf that gets into the debs is harcoded :'''(22:03
replaceafillin the /debian directory of the package22:03
replaceafillbut that's ok, i just didn't expect it22:03
replaceafillnow, i'm trying to set a second instance (simulating the warehouse server)22:04
replaceafillthat's why i'm updating the book22:04
replaceafilli think i can create the "ark" ppa now22:05
replaceafilland put this stuff up22:05
replaceafillso they can try it?22:05
replaceafillor at least, see that we've made progress on this22:06
th1aSure.  If that's how you want to do it.22:06
replaceafilli also asked Marcela her USB 3G modem, which is very slow22:07
replaceafillto test the whole setup :)22:07
replaceafillinstead of using VMs22:07
replaceafillthat's it i guess22:08
th1aYeah, that'll be interesting to see how fast it replicates.22:08
th1aI guess when you set up the PPA I'll just use that to start on the docs as well.22:08
th1aSo I guess I have the contract/invoice stuff sorted.22:09
th1aTook a couple tries on the invoice to get all the info.  I also had to do it in Word because we don't have our quickbooks set up for invoicing in GBP.22:10
th1aDid you see this:
th1aAnd this:
replaceafillah crap22:11
replaceafilli forgot to answer22:11
replaceafilloh, i already did :|22:12
replaceafillwell, it's the same answer basically22:12
replaceafillbut i'll answer the new question22:12
replaceafillpeople usually expects a student report from regular worksheets22:13
th1aMeaning... just a different kind of printable report?22:13
replaceafilldifferent source for the grades22:14
replaceafillregular worksheets vs report template worksheets22:14
replaceafilli mean, people start using the gradebook normally22:16
replaceafillwith no report sheets set up22:16
replaceafilladding worksheets/activities at will22:16
replaceafillthen later, they expect a report that gathers all of these22:17
th1aJust for that section.22:17
replaceafillfor a student22:17
th1aOK.  If we get a good enough pile of reports, that'll give me something for Alan to do.22:18
th1aI filed a bug report for a new report today as well.22:19
replaceafillah, the completion one22:20
replaceafillwe should try cataloging evaluations before doing that22:20
th1aOK, that's it.22:22
th1aThanks replaceafill.22:22
* th1a drops the bag of gravel.22:22
replaceafillthanks th1a i'll ping you when the ppa is ready22:22
replaceafilltomorrow probably )22:22
th1aOK, I see we have this, btw.22:23
th1aOnly 4 years old...22:23
replaceafillth1a, was there a reason why report sheets based reports got more attention?22:25
replaceafilljust curious22:26
th1aIf you want to print a report card for the school.22:26
th1aYou need report sheets.22:26
th1aOtherwise, it is just an overabundance of possible reports.22:26
replaceafillhhmm ok22:28
replaceafilli thought it was because of layout uniformity22:29
th1aIt would just be another report.22:29
th1aJust whatever happened to be the activities in that section, right?22:30
th1aI should probably just come up with a list and talk to Alan.22:30
* replaceafill goes to see the sielibre calendar :)22:31
* replaceafill likes having a calendar with tasks22:32
replaceafillok, first two weeks of june are going to be for maintenance22:32
replaceafillmaybe we could try the evaluation catalog there22:33
th1aPerhaps, yes.22:33
replaceafillthe person who contacted us from Costa Rica is requesting a Skype call22:35
replaceafilli'll set it for Thursday or Friday22:35
th1aOK.  En espanol?22:36
*** menesis has joined #schooltool22:38
replaceafilli can tell him English if you want to join?22:38
replaceafillhe said we could switch to English if i have trouble with Spanish :D22:39
th1aIs this just one school?22:39
replaceafilli don't think it's anything concrete yet22:39
* replaceafill is translating spa-eng :/22:40
replaceafilli googled his name and looks like a hosting provider, but not sure yet22:41
th1aAh, ok.22:41
th1aYeah, those guys are a weird because we're never really going to get any money out of them.22:42
th1aOh, I updated the book to get  the "update" step in there.22:43
th1aOn install.22:43
replaceafillnow that i've learned about cloning VMs and snapshots in virtualbox, answering this kind of questions has become easier :D22:44
replaceafilli haven't even set chroot for my packaging tests22:44
replaceafilli just revert to the snapshot or kill the VM22:45
