th1aI'm going to work on the footer, about page, etc. today.16:34
replaceafillah cool16:34
replaceafilli started on the report changes16:34
replaceafillone comment16:35
replaceafillgender has been required for ARK16:35
replaceafillit's not in 2.816:35
replaceafilldo you think it's a problem to have gender required in 3.0?16:35
th1aAh, no.16:36
replaceafillok, we can use the override view in schooltool.peas16:37
th1aIn the past few years there's been a bit more discussion about whether more options are needed there (among schools, etc. in general).16:37
th1aRemind me why they needed it required?16:37
replaceafilli think they just wanted it to be required16:38
replaceafillno technical reason iirc16:38
th1aOh, they have lots of reports that depend on it.16:38
replaceafillobviously, with these reports16:38
replaceafillit makes sense16:38
th1aThat eventually started to make more sense for me because getting girls into school is a big priority in some parts of the world.16:38
th1aOh, let's make it required and deal with squawking if it comes up.16:39
th1aWe could add more options, right?16:39
replaceafilllike checkboxes that allow schools to specify required extra fields?16:40
th1aI mean, more genders.16:40
th1aMale > Female or whatever.16:40
th1aTransgender is more known now.16:40
replaceafillno, they're still hardcoded16:41
replaceafillboth values16:41
th1aBut we could change the hardcoding.16:41
th1aIt is a list of two, not a boolean or something.16:41
replaceafilli also want to ask Fran about the boarding/day demographics16:42
replaceafillcurrently, it's an optional field16:42
replaceafilli think it should be required16:42
replaceafill(again for th reports)16:42
th1aWell, they might not know that when they create the person.16:43
replaceafillhhmm ok16:44
replaceafilli guess the report can keep ignoring that person16:44
replaceafilla person with None for that field16:44
replaceafillso, i have a good idea about handling gaps now16:45
th1aAh good.16:46
th1aAny particular insight?16:46
replaceafillit's still innefficient, but as long as it spits the right numbers16:46
replaceafillyeah, it's not possible anymore to say:16:47

th1aIt is a relief that 10 years work didn't just crumble into rubbish.16:51
