replaceafillhey th1a18:18
th1aHow is the fees work coming?18:19
replaceafilldone with fines18:19
th1aI think we need to earn our $5K from VA and get a script written today.18:20
replaceafillwhat should it do?18:21
th1aIt seems to me it should:18:21
th1a1) back up the db.18:21
th1a2) iterate through the people and insert a placeholder string (e.g.: "LAST_NAME") if anybody is missing that.18:22
th1a3) List the names and id's of anyone that was changed.18:22
replaceafillshould we aim only for first_name and last_name?18:24
th1aI don't know if it is worth a little extra time to make this a generally useful fix for all the required person attributes.18:24
replaceafillyour call18:24
th1aI mean, it seems like something that would be worth including as a script in the regular packages.18:25
th1aIf it is an extra 10 minutes, I'd do it.18:25
replaceafillthis is the first time we see it, right?18:25
replaceafillmy major concern about this approach is that we don't really know what caused it18:26
th1aI mean, just adding checks for the couple additional required attributes for basic_person.18:26
th1aWell... if this is not the problem, probably nothing happens.18:26
th1aWell, don't let me slow this down.18:27
replaceafilllet's start with first/last name18:27
replaceafilland see if that works18:27
replaceafillfor him18:27
replaceafilli'll need you to test it18:27
replaceafillso have an instance ready18:27
th1aCan we reproduce the problem?18:27
replaceafilli did using debudb18:28
replaceafillbut i can send you a script to do it18:28
replaceafilljust have a username ready18:28
th1aI'm afraid I have an interview at 1:00 (in an hour and a half).18:28
replaceafillah ok18:28
replaceafilli'll work on it and let you know when it's ready18:29
replaceafillyou can test it or just send it then18:29
replaceafillor i can just send it too18:30
th1aYeah, probably you should because it seems like they're trying to finish their grades, also the contact guy seems relatively competent on the server.18:30
th1aJust make sure the terminal output is clear on if it did anything or not.18:31
th1aI guess our fate is being decided in London today.18:34
th1aOtherwise, that's all I've got.18:34
replaceafillah ok18:34
replaceafillthanks th1a18:34
th1aThanks replaceafill.18:34
