th1ahi replaceafill.16:33
replaceafillhey th1a16:34
th1aOK, so I have a meeting with Steven tomorrow at 10:30, and I don't want to leave there without being prepared to wire you some money.16:34
replaceafillgreat thanks16:34
th1aOK... I just want to make sure I get the version info right for PEAS now... can I log into their demo?  What's the URL?16:37
th1aThat's what everyone should be on now, right?16:37
replaceafillthat's a sandbox16:37
replaceafillyou can see the right versions in the PPA16:37
th1aWhat should it say in the footer?16:39
th1aSo actually, I can just refer them to that page in general to check their versions against what is on the server page.16:39
replaceafillthat's where they're install from anyway16:40
th1aHere's one thing I'm thinking.16:40
th1aMaybe we should do a 2.9 release before Christmas to essentially reflect the last Mark release, so there is no ambiguity about that.16:41
th1aAnd then 3.0 in January including the ARK stuff (since I can't actually get a signed contributor agreement out of them).16:41
replaceafillhave they refused or something?16:42
th1aBut I imagine it would take some prodding to get someone in authority to sign it.16:43
th1aI think it is just that...16:43
th1aI mean, they spent a non-trivial amount of time reviewing the contract and never actually signed it either.16:43
th1aSo... ?16:43
th1aAt this point it just isn't important to me.16:43
replaceafillso 2.9 would include new school page16:43
th1aIt would be a testing release.16:44
th1aBut really more just "OK, here's the last of the Mark stuff."16:44
replaceafillwe'll create a 2.9 ppa, right?16:44
th1aWe certainly should demarcate (hah!) that line.16:44
replaceafillthis is where my head will start spinning....16:45
th1aIn theory we could stick it in dev or something.16:45
th1aI don't want to make too much overhead.16:45
th1aDo you understand my point?16:45
replaceafillif that's th eright word16:45
replaceafillso, bug fixes keep landing on 2.816:46
replaceafilluntil january16:46
replaceafillwhere 3.0 comes out and becomes new stable16:47
replaceafillwith the hopefully tested school page16:47
replaceafilland ark stuff?16:47
replaceafillso at january, ark will start using 3.0 + schooltool.peas and schooltool.fee?16:47
th1aWell, fee will also become "core."16:48
replaceafillah ok16:48
replaceafillwell, that's a good late december task :)16:48
replaceafillnot much dev, just good packages organization16:48
replaceafillppas, series and other LP stuff16:49
th1aWhat else?16:52
replaceafilli made progress on the reports area of the new school page16:54
replaceafilli enabled the plugins yesterday to see the year reports16:54
replaceafilland the rest of the options (skills, score systems, etc)16:55
replaceafillmost of them fit nicely in the new layout16:55
replaceafilli noticed you changed the report card layouts to the year part16:55
replaceafilland we were handling them in the customize global area16:55
replaceafillso i need to change that in the gradebook16:56
th1aYeah, we may move more reports to those areas where possible.16:56
th1aLike, all the term reports to the year section, let you choose the term in the dialog.16:57
th1aBasically, everything that might go there should.16:57
replaceafillthat'd be nice16:57
replaceafilli got a couple of questions16:57
replaceafillthe Reports overview link16:59
replaceafillin this layout is gone16:59
*** menesis1 has joined #schooltool16:59
*** menesis has quit IRC16:59
th1aAh, it could be one of the box links.17:00
replaceafillah cool17:00
th1aI mean, everything that doesn't have another place goes there...17:00
th1aJust "Reports" is sufficient I think.17:00
replaceafillsecond question, did you order the box links?17:01
replaceafillor is that random?17:01
replaceafilli mean, do you want the links in the order of the pictures?17:01
th1atbh, maybe we should start with alphabetical.17:04
th1aNone of it whould require frequent tweaking.17:04
th1aSo nothing really needs to be much easier to find than the rest.17:05
replaceafillah ok17:05
replaceafillok, finally i've also started the style changes17:05
replaceafillflourish still impresses me :)17:06
replaceafilli just added a page_class and now i'm able to tweak the layout entirely17:06
replaceafillok, that's it from me17:06
replaceafill*hopefully* i'll be able to show you something tomorrow17:07
th1aI'm hoping mobert will be able to start revising the book for the new school page next week...17:07
replaceafillah ok17:08
replaceafillyesterday when i needed to test the new ark packages i tried docker17:08
replaceafillinstead of virtualbox17:08
replaceafillit's very very cool17:09
replaceafillthe container is ready instantly17:09
replaceafillthanks to Matt Gallagher for the idea :)17:09
th1aThese are things I may need to learn about soon...17:10
replaceafillok, that's it from me17:11
th1aOK.  Thanks replaceafill.17:13
replaceafillthanks th1a17:13
* replaceafill goes to get breakfast, bb in ~3017:13
th1areplaceafill:  Do the enrollment demographic fields always get added to the end of the spreadsheet when you upgrade?18:57
*** khildin has joined #schooltool19:22
replaceafillth1a, back19:31
replaceafillyou mean when you export?19:31
replaceafillor in the sample data?19:31
th1aLet me rephrase.19:32
th1aFor CanDo users, they just get those columns added at the end as optional?19:33
th1aMore to the point, if they have nothing there, their old sheets should still work?19:33
th1aOr do they need to add them in the middle somewhere?19:33
replaceafilli think Glenda added them to their sample sheet19:34
replaceafilland when they export the fields get exported in the same order19:35
th1aI don't understand her question, I guess:19:36
th1a"Do we need to change the columns in the student spreadsheet to account for the additional "states" of each student? When I trained Prince George last week, I worked with the IT person trying to get the imports straight. I remembered that one of the weird error codes was from the added fields for demographics. The new fields must be reordered to be at the end: Date of un-enrollment, Reason for unk-enrollment, Destination school19:36
th1aOh, they'd get that if they had 2.8.0 perhaps?  The new sheet wouldn't work?19:37
replaceafilloh maybe she didn't add them to the sample sheet19:37
th1aOK.  Thanks.19:39
replaceafillth1a, question about the new [+] buttons19:43
replaceafillwe don't have that shade of green, correct?19:43
th1aI don't think I based it off anything, no.19:43
replaceafillah ok19:44
th1aYou can just copy it.19:44
replaceafillyeah, on it19:44
th1aDo you have an eyedropper?19:44
th1ato get the color code.19:44
th1aI just use agave.19:44
replaceafilli used gimp on your image :)19:45
th1aThat'll work too.19:45

th1areplaceafill:  Do you know if ubuntu sets up a boot partition by default?23:24
th1aOr maybe it used to?23:24
th1aGlenda has someone else with a full boot partition.23:25
th1aI mean, I guess I know they don't now by default.23:25
th1aActually, I guess they do.23:26
th1aAssuming my VM's are just default.23:26
th1aapt-get autoremove clears out the old ones.23:26
th1aWe should probably have her just tell people to run that when they update.23:27
replaceafillhey th1a23:31
replaceafillth1a, i think it depends on the options you select when you install23:32
th1aWell, yes.23:43
th1aAssuming people who are complaining about it just did the defaults.23:43
replaceafilli think default is guided, so yes /boot is created23:43
th1aIt is in my vms.23:44
th1aAutoremove should take care of it though, right?23:44
replaceafillis /boot filled with kernel images?23:44
replaceafillor whatever those are called23:44
replaceafillyeah, autoremove gets rid of them23:45
replaceafilllinux-image... etc23:45
replaceafillth1a, style progress:
th1aAh, coming along!23:48
th1aNice to see my vision becoming reality.  ;-)23:48
replaceafilli had to hack the reports select23:49
replaceafillto kind of match your image23:49
replaceafillcss hack23:49
replaceafillSchool Reports is actually a disabled option with bg-color23:49
th1aOK... just keep in mind that to a certain extent I was just pulling out the widgets in that particular kit.23:49
replaceafillyeah, i figured23:50
replaceafillbut it looks decent, right?23:50
replaceafillnot sure if it's confusing23:50
th1aWell, I'm not sure about that widget.23:51
replaceafillwe can tweak it ofc23:51
th1aDon't get hung up on that level of tweaking at this point.23:51
th1aI was just grabbing the closest example.23:51
th1aThe main thing is that it has to scroll within about that amount of space.23:51
*** mobert has quit IRC23:53
th1aOK, cool.  Thanks.23:56
