th1ahi replaceafill.17:32
replaceafillhey th1a17:32
th1aHow's it coming?17:32
replaceafillunfortunately i don't have enough to set an instance17:33
replaceafilli should have it by the end of the day though17:33
th1aAh, ok.17:33
th1abtw, shouldn't you have set a task to "started" for this?17:34
replaceafilli'm kind of waiting for her to approve it :S17:34
th1aGo ahead and mark it started.17:34
th1aWe need to get in the habit of using this.17:34
replaceafillah ok17:34
replaceafilli did mark the package one as started17:35
th1aHm... I guess I don't have enough of a role in that now to get it on my personal list.17:36
replaceafillwhich one?17:36
replaceafillthe packaging one?17:36
replaceafilli usually just type the blueprints urls :)17:37
th1aOK, did you look at my mockups?17:37
replaceafillshe wrote a comment today about the dialog17:38
th1aI'm thinking the time fields would be activated based on the code entered, but always visible.17:38
replaceafilli'm thinking rising users will get scared with all the fields17:39
replaceafillif they already think the dialog is better for them17:40
th1aWe can get rid of returning, but otherwise, that's what they are asking for.17:40
th1aWell, it is ok with me I guess.17:40
th1aDo you agree with the mockups?17:40
th1aI'll send her two versions -- with and without the returning field.17:41
replaceafilli don't entirely agree with 3 time fields17:41
replaceafilli think 1 is enough and 2 can handle the returned case17:42
replaceafillbut let's see what she says to this one17:42
th1aHow is one enough?17:42
th1aWhat if someone arrives late and leaves early?17:43
replaceafillPresent late - time17:43
replaceafillpresent left early - time17:44
th1aThat's way more abstract.17:44
th1aOK.  I'll clean those up and send them along.17:45
th1aOK, shall we go through the others Fran commented on?17:46
th1aI need her to explain the sequence of steps in this process because we don't have enough to understand what she's talking about at all.17:47
replaceafillhhmm ok17:48
replaceafilli understand it like:17:48
replaceafillstudentA has event117:48
replaceafillfor event1 you need to record those 5 options17:49
replaceafilland that's it?17:49
replaceafillyou don't need to track who recorded it, when, etc17:49
replaceafilljust what17:49
th1aWell, you DO.17:50
th1aIt isn't hard anyhow.17:50
replaceafillwhat do you mean?17:50
replaceafill"you DO"?17:50
th1aYou have to know who recorded it and when.17:50
th1aI mean, it is absurd not to.17:50
th1aI don't know if we should store these in a global container or what.17:51
th1aI guess that makes sense though.17:52
replaceafilli guess the only date you need is the event's17:52
th1aAn object with:17:52
th1astudent, teacher, time, actions, description.17:52
th1aWe could just add a link from the name in the gradebook to create it.17:53
replaceafillgood idea17:53
th1aOK, I'll toss that back at Fran, then.17:54
th1aDoes this make sense to you?
replaceafilldo you remember17:56
replaceafillthere was a target shee17:56
replaceafillin the first term iirc17:56
replaceafillin each course17:56
replaceafillisli didn't have that17:57
replaceafillthat's why she says "reactivate"17:57
th1aOK.  Cool.17:57
th1aCan you throw in a quote for that then?17:57
replaceafilli'll check the peas code first17:57
replaceafillthere's a blueprint about grading structure too17:58
th1aYou clear on that too?17:58
replaceafillyes, i think so17:58
replaceafillbright green and light green..17:59
replaceafilleverything looks dark in my old monitor! :D17:59
replaceafilli'll estimate both at the end of the day17:59
replaceafillah crap!18:01
replaceafill"I have a new complexity to this..."18:01
*** yvl has quit IRC18:02
replaceafillfortunately i didn't get to the relationship wiring!18:02
th1aI don't think this is a problem...18:02
th1aRelationships would have already been many to many.18:03
replaceafillso this basically means a student should be able to be in many streams, right?18:03
th1aYeah, the initial description is worrisome.18:03
th1aOK. Does that change your estimate?18:05
replaceafilli don't think so18:06
replaceafilli just wonder18:06
replaceafillabout a case where a student is in 2 streams18:06
replaceafilland both streams point to the same section18:07
replaceafillif you remove the student from stream A18:07
th1aThey'd stay in the section.18:07
replaceafillbecause of stream B?18:08
replaceafillso when removing someone from a stream18:10
replaceafillall of their streams should be checked for section collision18:10
th1aI guess.  I could double check if we could just restrict sections to one stream, but I'd rather not.18:11
th1aI mean, it is just a slightly annoying bit of code for you.18:11
th1aOK, moving on?18:14
th1aQuestion here:
replaceafilli just commented on it18:16
th1aI think we're done then.18:16
th1aI'll get these responses out.18:17
th1aThanks replaceafill.18:18
replaceafillthanks th1a18:18
