th1aOK, cool.16:43
*** yvl has quit IRC16:44
th1aI can't seem to log into Skype on my desktop.  I don't know whether it is because I don't know my password or something with the system.16:45
th1aDo we want to do a screenshare for this tomorrow?16:46
th1aI would think yes.16:46
th1aLuckily I do have other computers!16:46
th1aOK, so how should we walk through this?16:49
replaceafillok, /manage first, right?16:49
replaceafillthen maybe notes16:49
th1aWe can find a student using the dynamic search...16:50
th1aLook at their notes.16:50
replaceafilland try adding a new student16:50
replaceafillto show the enrollment date16:50
replaceafilland effective date for levels16:50
replaceafillthen new codes and colors in teacher/student attendance16:51

replaceafilland maybe mention that we're running 3.0dev16:51
th1aWhere are the categories set again?16:52
replaceafillnote categories?16:52
replaceafillstill hard coded16:52
replaceafilli'll try to finish that today16:53
replaceafilland then you can show the re-enroll view16:53
th1aWe could also move the Reports selector label to just being a regular label.16:53
replaceafilloh, i forgot about that16:53
th1aOop, I got a traceback for not having a leave date.16:53
th1aGood thing we're doing some QA.  ;-)16:54
replaceafillthe demo fields for leaving the school were not created...16:59
th1aThat'll do it.17:04
replaceafilli didn't catch it locally because my db was already there17:04
replaceafilli created a new one in the vps17:04
replaceafilllet me stop the server and blow the db17:05
replaceafillok, fixed th1a17:09
replaceafillah btw, Messages is now an accordion too17:10
replaceafill(in case i didn't mention that)17:10
replaceafillyou can see it under
th1aI did see it.17:12
replaceafilli think we need a level view for showing related students17:13
th1aDoes re-enroll put the student back in the student group?17:14
th1aIt should.17:14
replaceafillah ok17:16
replaceafillfor some reason i remember doing that and it's not in my notes17:16
th1aI don't see it in the results.17:16
replaceafillno, it's not in the code17:16
replaceafilli'll check if it got lost in the merge17:17
replaceafillstudent group in the active year, right?17:18
th1aWell, that corresponds to the active date would be best.17:20
th1aeffective date17:20
replaceafilloh you mean look for the year according to the date in the form?17:20
th1aWell, that would be most correct.17:21
replaceafilldoes sielibre provide hardware for members/workers?17:21
replaceafillmy laptop is doing some strange things today17:22
th1aUh oh.17:23
th1aDo we need data for example reports or should we just leave that to them I guess?17:24
replaceafillwell, we haven't changed reports in this iteration yet17:25
th1aAh, ok.17:25
th1aThis is just the "do nows."17:25
th1aOK, so that's it then?17:26
replaceafillthat's it17:26
th1aOK.  Cool.17:27
replaceafillthis is basically what Fran highlighted as green in the 23rd meeting17:28
replaceafilldecember 23rd17:28
replaceafill+ new school page and other improvements17:28
th1aCorrect.  I just looked at that.17:29
th1aOK, today I shall wrap up SchoolTool & Mark Shuttleworth.17:29
th1aDId you read the draft I shared with you?17:30
replaceafilli like the part time developer part :)17:30
replaceafillnot focused enough :)17:30
th1aI couldn't come up with any great organization for the whole thing.17:30
th1aIs it reasonably readable?17:31
th1aI'm going to add some background info at the beginning.17:31
replaceafilli liked the link you sent me yesterday17:31
replaceafillof the SIS coded in perl17:31
th1aYeah, that guy is very level-headed, so it is good to know what he charges.17:32
replaceafilldo you know him?17:32
th1aNo, but you can tell.  ;-)17:32
replaceafilli liked the part where he says he could work for free17:32
replaceafillif the people on the other end is willing to do their part17:33
th1aI mean, he's kept it going without flaming out for over 10 years.17:33
th1aNo drama, no license weirdness.17:33
th1aNow I'm going to have to actually look at the scary exchange rate.  :-(17:34
th1aGlad this only happened at the end.17:34
th1aJennifer was like "Whatever, I didn't even think you were getting paid again."17:35
th1aSo mentally, it is all gravy.  ;-)17:35
replaceafilldon't worry if you can't pay me :)17:35
replaceafillok, re-enroll put the student back in the group17:35
replaceafill(according to the date)17:35
replaceafilljust updated the vps instance17:36
th1aOK, so nothing leapt out as striking the wrong tone in the report?17:36
replaceafilli don't think so17:37
replaceafillare you thinking of any specific part?17:37
replaceafill(so i can re-read it)17:37
th1aAnything in particular seem missing?17:38
replaceafilli was waiting for more history17:39
replaceafillbut i guess that's the background you're adding now17:39
th1aI don't think he wants the whole history, but I'm going to add enough that other people will get the point.17:40
th1aOK.  I guess that's it.17:41
th1aSo we'll have a half hour meeting and then skype tomorrow.17:42
th1aThanks replaceafill.17:42
replaceafilli think i'm going to have some rest, i don't feel 100% yet17:43
