th1areplaceafill: Oh, we need some values for reason for leaving and destination school.00:12
replaceafilldefault values?00:12
th1aFor testing if nothing else.00:14
th1a"Moved away" "Expulsion" "Local transfer"00:15
replaceafillthey speak english in uganda :O00:15
replaceafillnp then :D00:15
replaceafilli hate default values in demographics00:15
replaceafillbecause of i18n00:15
th1aYou can put them in ARK.00:16
replaceafilli'll update the values00:16
th1aYou can leave them out of core if you want.00:16
th1aEsp. since Destination School should just be Example School.00:16
th1aExample School A Example School B00:17
th1aIs it annoying to stuff them in ARK/00:17
replaceafillactually, we don't have anything ark specific yet00:17
replaceafilleverything is a branch of 2.800:17
th1aatm you can put them wherever you want.00:18
replaceafillyou said something about the agreement00:18
th1aIt isn't worth fretting over righ tnow.00:18
th1aJust stick 'em in there for now.00:18
th1aI'm going to send Sunesh the sandbox setup instructions and tell him there may still be some rough edges.00:19
th1aDepending on what you get checked in tonight.00:19
replaceafillif i understood correctly Sunesh is planning on going, right?00:21
replaceafilldo you know when is he supposed to start setting things up?00:21
th1aThere will be some time... I don't think he's going to be flying off next Monday.00:22
replaceafillah ok00:22
th1aSchool Administrators can do student and teacher attendance, right?00:25
replaceafilli think only clerks can00:26
replaceafilllet me check00:26
th1aOh, yes, that is correct.00:26
th1aI mean, that is what it should be.00:27
th1aBut check.00:27
replaceafillyep, only clerks00:28
th1aOK, I'm knocking off for the night.00:32

th1aHow's your internet replaceafill?16:19
replaceafilli lost my connection just a few minutes after i sent you the update email last night16:20
replaceafillnot much progress on the packaging front :(16:21
replaceafilldid you check the changes?16:22
th1aYeah, I've got some paper cuts and small issues, but we need to get the packaging sorted first.16:22
th1aDid something not work last night with packaging?16:24
th1aOr did you just run out of time?16:24
replaceafilli ran out of time16:26
replaceafilland no access to the dev instructions, etc16:27
replaceafilli mean, packaging instructions16:27
th1aYeah, ok.16:27
th1aI mean, that's better than "I tried everything I could and am completely stuck."16:28
replaceafillno, i'm not there yet ;)16:28
th1aOK, so I'm not going to clutter your brain right now, but I have a short list of little improvements mostly to teacher attendance that ideally we can do tomorrow.16:29
th1aBut none of which is a show-stopper.16:29
replaceafilllet's discuss the list16:30
th1aPackaging is the only thing that could be a crisis at this point, so just jump on that.16:30
th1a- color highlights for absent teachers with/without subs.16:30
th1a- teacher attendance should lists subs and/or separate report with subs.16:31
th1a- marking someone explicitly "present" shouldn't make them show up on the attendance report.16:31
th1a- I'm not sure if I got some weird dialog behavior because of stuff in my cache or something, but at first the dialog was acting weird.16:33
th1aI'll have to see if that recurrs.16:33
replaceafilldid you try with a fresh instance?16:33
replaceafillah ok, please try that when you have time16:34
replaceafillabout color highlights16:34
replaceafillyou mean changing the background cell when there's a sub, right?16:34
replaceafillwhat you commented yesterday16:34
th1aI see them.16:34
replaceafillyeah, i worked on that16:35
replaceafillmaybe we need a stronger color?16:35
th1aNo... it wasn't there.16:35
replaceafilli used the same background the student attendance view uses16:35
th1aIt is ok for now...16:35
th1aOK, yeah... I think I had some chaching going on.16:36
th1athat's good.16:37
replaceafillthe "present" status is there just because states require a explicit ACTIVE state16:37
th1aI know why it exists, but it looked like if you set it explicitly it showed up in the report?16:37
replaceafillbut from the app point of view, we don't use those states in the same way16:38
replaceafillwe could just make Absent the ACTIVE status and wouldn't matter16:38
th1aWell... whatever it takes.16:38
replaceafillhaving Present does allow you to fix errors16:39
th1aCan't you just filter it out at the report level?16:39
replaceafillwe could use Present to get rid of the absent mark16:39
replaceafillbut i mean16:40
replaceafillhaving Present gives us other opportunities, that's all16:40
th1aThis is not a data model issue.16:41
th1aIt is just something that shouldn't be in the report.16:41
replaceafillgot it16:41
th1aOK, cool.16:41
th1aI guess the other thing is that if I picked a random day when school was not in session I ended up with a file with no pages.16:42
th1aIt would be nice to catch that earlier.16:42
replaceafillterms have that functionality16:42
replaceafillgot it16:42
th1aThat's a lower priority.16:43
th1aMost of my concerns seem to have been caching related.16:43
th1aSo that's good!16:43
replaceafilloh th1a16:46
replaceafillquestion about the peas default admin16:46
replaceafillit shouldn't be possible to delete that user, right?16:47
replaceafillsimilar to the "manager" one16:47
th1aI guess not.16:47
replaceafilland, should we place them in the same default groups a manager?16:47
replaceafilli mean, clerks, etc16:47
th1aNo, School Administrator.16:48
th1aFor now.16:48
th1aThey should probably have their own group.16:48
th1aThat has totally read-only permissions, but that's not an immediate need.16:48
replaceafillah ok16:48
replaceafillok, i'll go get some quick breakfast and start with the packages again16:49
th1aOK.  Good luck!16:49
replaceafilli hope i'll have something installable by the end of the day16:49
replaceafillwe're not missing any features, right? ;)16:50
replaceafill"oh, we forgot that other view!"16:50
th1aNot that I'm aware of.  Nothing that would really trip us up.16:50
replaceafillthanks th1a16:50
replaceafillsee you later16:51

th1aHow's packaging, replaceafill?18:58
replaceafillmaking progress18:59

replaceafilli cheated though :(18:59

replaceafillto avoid even more packaging18:59
th1aThat's fine.18:59
replaceafilli'm testing the zrs configuration with 2.819:01
replaceafilljust to test the zrs package19:01
replaceafillok, onto schooltool/ark19:05
th1azrs would be the hard part, right?19:13
replaceafillnot really, schooltool was what stopped me last time19:14
th1aI have to reboot...19:16
th1aWith multiple screens on this setup I loose my window decorations randomly a few times a week.19:16

th1areplaceafill:  OK.22:58
th1aI fell asleep.22:58
*** nedosa has quit IRC23:15
th1abtw, I'm assuming we'll just need to set up rsync or something for the blob directory?23:22
replaceafillyou mean to sync it?23:24
replaceafillzrs does it23:24
th1aWe're getting our money's worth!23:28
replaceafillas long as the ark server can access the school server ports :(23:28
replaceafillthat's all i ask...23:28
replaceafillbut we said this was a proof, right?23:29
replaceafilli mean, us using zrs for this23:29
