13:28 slef hi all
13:29 slef Is it too early for kiwis?
13:29 owen A little, I think
13:29 owen hi slef
13:31 slef Anything thought of more to cover in the arch discussion starter?
13:31 owen Does the conversion process retain the history that's already in a CVS repository?
13:33 slef I didn't. Some of it can be done, but it's an attempt to turn sausages back into pigs. I'd just leave the CVS archive up as a store, maybe with all files deleted in HEAD.
13:33 owen I suppose that makes sense
13:34 slef Sausages/pigs => when you do a multi-file commit in CVS, it actually just commits each file in turn. With a remote laggy server like sourceforge, you start trying to reconstruct from the timestamps and usernames.
13:34 slef Not an easy problem, sadly.
13:34 slef oh, and the log messages, as most cvs users use the same log message for multiple files, which sucks but actually helps in this case.
13:35 owen sucks if you're making different changes to each file, makes sense if you're adding the same thing to each one.
13:36 slef of course
13:37 owen when you were talking about developers not documenting their changes yesterday, were you talking about CVS log messages, or inline comments? Or both?
13:37 slef more inline comments and perldoc
13:39 slef the koha cvs is better than most for log messages
13:39 slef occasionally it's vague, but that's rare
13:42 owen Did my comment yesterday about make sense?
13:44 owen (bug 436)
14:08 slef yes
14:22 indradg hi... anyone here using kbarcode with Koha?
14:22 rach hi
14:22 indradg hi rachel
14:22 owen kbarcode is a barcode-generator, right?
14:22 indradg owen: thats right
14:23 owen So it doesn't really have to work *with* Koha, does it?  Because Koha will accept any barcoding system you want.
14:23 owen ...with alterations to the database, in some cases :(
14:23 indradg owen: yes... semantically u r correct :)
14:24 owen :)
14:24 indradg i'm facing a small problem with the barcodes I generated and while I can write a small script to take care of it... i was just looking for someone who may have some experience of using kbarcode
14:25 owen Paul is best reached earlier in the day (or night, as the case may be).
14:26 indradg right... i know :)
14:26 rach or e-mail him
14:28 indradg its a silly problem... I had calculated/generated (using OOo Calc) 10-digit numbers for my items, with the last digit as checksum
14:28 indradg same logic as ISBN checkdigit
14:29 indradg the trouble is that when I pass that number to kbarcode to generate the PDFs of the actual barcodes... kbarcode is appending 978 (bookland suffix) to my number and dropping off the checkdigit
14:31 indradg of course I can take care of it using a few lines of client-side Javascript :P
14:43 rach euw that's not so good
14:50 indradg rachel: what do u suggest?
14:54 rach sorry I don't have any useful suggestion
14:54 rach other than perhaps to ask kbarcode?
14:55 indradg yeah
14:56 indradg thnaks anyways :)
15:00 rach or check with Paul
15:04 indradg yup... will do that!
15:06 rach nice e-mail on list owen :-)
15:06 owen Thanks.  Can't snark at a person about not seeing the footer if they've just joined the list, eh?
15:07 rach yep

15:31 slef There are even web sites like that track football
15:31 rach mmm skiing

20:11 kados perl
20:12 chris u could try running it under mod_perl
20:12 kados right ...
20:14 kados FWIW, the forthcoming Blosxom 3.0 will run under mod_perl. I'll help Rael to make sure of it.
