th1ahi replaceafill.17:32
replaceafillhey th1a17:32
th1aHow are you?17:33
replaceafillfully recovered from my cold17:33
th1aThat's good.17:34
replaceafillth1a, did you get any reply from Anthony Nelson?17:34
replaceafill(on the journal bug)17:34
th1aOh, yes I did.17:36
th1aI guess we could change them to ARK day attendance, based on the timetable...17:36
replaceafillis that 8 am to 3 am?17:37
replaceafillthe journal uses 24 hour format, right?17:37
replaceafilli'll check17:38
replaceafillyes, i just set one schedule from 8 am to 3 pm17:44
replaceafilland 3 pm is displayed as 15:0017:44
replaceafilli'll try to reproduce his setup (timezone and periods) after the meeting17:46
replaceafillwith a fresh db17:46
th1aI suspect you'll be able to reproduce it now...17:46
replaceafillGermio also answered17:48
* th1a is a little scattered today.17:48
th1aDo you have the import spreadsheet they sent?17:50
th1aI just forwarded it.17:51
replaceafillah thanks17:51
th1aWe should probably set up an alias to get mail to both of us or something...17:51
replaceafillhhmm people usually only write to you17:52
replaceafillso we need to take the xls import it in a fresh db17:52
replaceafilland the create the script to assign the grades based on the csv17:52
th1aThat should work.17:52
th1aNow, at this point we're pretty much pausing to get reports and work out a contract, I believe.17:53
replaceafillah ok17:53
replaceafillmaybe we should contact Steven Celmer?17:53
th1aTake a look at the sctions, though.17:53
th1aAbout... ?17:54
th1aIn general?17:54
replaceafillmaybe he's still interested in the social skills work17:54
th1aYeah, but we can do that beginning of next year.17:54
replaceafillah ok17:54
th1aUnless there is a connection here I'm missing...17:54
replaceafillyou mean we're pausing with Surinam?17:55
replaceafilli thought you meant ARK17:55
replaceafillor maybe i'm just confused :)17:55
th1aI mean, we're not importing these grades until we have a contract.17:55
th1aYes, I'm just stating the obvious.17:55
th1aThe only hang up here seems to be section title vs. ID.17:56
th1aThere are multiple sections with the same title, I think.17:56
th1aIf need be we could just find the correct section.17:56
replaceafilli haven't looked closely yet17:56
th1a(for each person)17:56
th1aI'll ask if he can give us the ID's easily.17:56
replaceafilli thought you did17:56
th1aHis answers don't have a lot of detail!17:57
replaceafillanyway, yeah id's will be easier to handle17:57
th1aPresumably English is not his first language.17:57
th1aBut basically, we should be able to go ahead from this point.17:57
th1aWhen they are ready.17:57

replaceafillth1a, zyt?20:01
th1aHi replaceafill.20:02
replaceafillok, i was able to reproduce Anthony's bug20:02
replaceafillbut what's actually the bug?20:02
replaceafillschool attendance uses timezone conversion and the section journal doesn't20:03
replaceafill2. Anthony's periods are spanning from 8 am to 3 am20:03
replaceafillmore than one day periods20:03
replaceafillimho the bug is: we either handle timezones or not20:03
replaceafillshould i just remove timezone handling from the school attendance view?20:04
th1aWhat is "timezone handling" in this context?20:04
replaceafillmeetings have timestamps as .dtstart20:05
replaceafilli mean journal meetings20:05
replaceafillso when the date is calculated from them20:05
replaceafillwe first convert the dtstart.astimezone(app_timezone).date()20:06
replaceafillif I use Anthony's scenario20:07
replaceafilland change the timezone to UTC20:07
replaceafillthe dates in both views match20:07
th1aST timezone.20:07
th1aIs the OS using UTC in this case?20:08
replaceafillin my case the OS timezone is set to America/El_Salvador20:09
replaceafillaccording to /etc/timezone20:09
th1aI guess I'm just wondering if this comes up when everything is set consistently, or if something is wrong.20:10
th1aOr if it only comes up if something is wrong.20:10
th1aI mean, "timezone handling" should be, you know, making it work correctly?20:11
replaceafilloh, so i should try America/El_Salvador for ST timezone20:11
replaceafilli used New_York20:11
replaceafillas Anthony's example20:11
replaceafillok, let me try that20:11
th1aI mean, presumably "screw it, turn off 'timezone handling' is going to cause a problem for some other case.20:12
th1aThe PRIMARY bug here is that their periods go into tomorrow, which is obviously a mistake.20:13
th1aI added the Linode.20:31
replaceafillah ok20:31
th1areplaceafill:  Do you want me to answer and point that out?20:47
replaceafillthe 8-3 periods20:47
replaceafillyes please20:47
replaceafilli tried America/El_Salvador as the ST timezone20:49
replaceafillbut the result is the same20:49
th1aWhat about UTC?20:49
replaceafillUTC makes them match20:49
th1aOtherwise, he needs a new timetable schema and reschedule?20:49
replaceafilli mean, UTC as the ST timezone20:49
replaceafilldon't we have a bug that prevents rescheduling...?20:50
replaceafillcan't remember20:50
