08:26 hdl_laptop hi
08:26 chris hiya hdl_laptop, ltns
08:26 chris hows things going?
08:50 slef hdl_laptop: can you pull smallbugs from git:// please?  It contains a backported fix for Bug 2547 which ought to get into 3.0.x.
08:50 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=2547 normal, P3, ---,, NEW, $ sign in boraccount / fines / account tab
08:50 slef morning all
08:55 chris hi slef
08:58 Ropuch Hi slef
08:58 chris slef: can you push 3.0.x to gitorious please
08:58 chris i just killed it by accident
08:58 Nouman left #koha
09:00 slef chris: will do
09:01 chris thanks
09:15 slef chris: I think that's done. Had a little local problem during pull.
09:17 Ropuch chris: are you still in chrage of pootle?
09:18 Ropuch I've just registered an account for our trainee, so he can make some suggestion that i can review later
09:19 slef just read the PTFS buys LibLime news, including the "PTFS pledges to enhance and maintain the site" bit :-(
09:19 Ropuch But with the new account I'm able to add/delete entries in translations - they don't show as suggestions
09:22 chris slef: yeah, i think we just continue on with koha-community and let PTFS come to us when they decide to join the community
09:22 chris Ropuch: whats the username?
09:36 paul_p joined #koha
09:39 paul_p hello world
09:39 paul_p chris about ?
09:40 slef hi paul_p
09:40 chris hiya paul_p
09:40 slef chris was about 0921
09:40 paul_p I think everybody already knows that PTFS has bought LL (finally !)
09:42 paul_p the important sentence on the PR is : "PTFS pledges to enhance and maintain the site as the focal point for the world’ s Koha activities– the place to find the latest information on Koha support, documentation, news, and downloads."
09:42 chris yeah, slef and I commented on that already
09:43 chris i would be much much much happier if it said
09:43 chris PTFS pledges to work with the rest of the koha community to .....
09:43 chris as it stands it reads like 'we plan to be like liblime and do whatever we want'
09:44 chris what i said earlier was
09:44 chris 22:22 < chris> slef: yeah, i think we just continue on with koha-community and let PTFS come to us when they decide to join  the community
09:57 Nouman joined #koha
10:06 davi joined #koha
10:07 paul_p back from phone call...
10:07 chris :)
10:07 paul_p my opinion on this is that it would have been more clear if PTFS had written : "PTFS pledges to re-open" instead of "PTFS pledges to enhance and maintain"
10:08 paul_p but i'm an optimitic man, so, i'll say it will be a good news at the end.
10:08 chris :)
10:08 slef hope for the best but prepare for the worst
10:09 slef do we think the "it's all off" was one side trying to move the price?
10:09 chris who knows, US business practices make my brain hurt
10:09 paul_p I had JY on phone 3 weeks ago. He asked me a question that sounded strange, but now is more clear : "what would make the community happy". I answered "just give back to the community". he added "is that all?" I answered "maybe give back the trademark, but that's a US specific problem we don't have in Europe"
10:10 paul_p my feeling (totally un-argued) is that PTFS realised they could say "no" to the LL price and just would have to wait a little bit to see LL going back and say "OK, which price do you want to pay"
10:10 paul_p if I'm right, then, they were right to do that ;-)
10:11 paul_p + josh had only 2 options : sell at the PTFS price or loose everything
10:11 chris we'll probably never know
10:11 paul_p right
10:11 chris and im not sure it even matters :)
10:12 chris as i see it, the ball is in ptfs court, we just keep on keeping on, and they do whatever they decide to do
10:12 paul_p i agree with you.
10:13 paul_p but i'll send a mail to JY to congratulate him & say i've noticed the "PTFS pledges...", and ask for what it could mean
10:15 chris cant hurt

12:18 jwagner hdl_laptop or paul_p, online?

12:23 owen Hi everyone
12:24 gmcharlt hi jwagner
12:24 jwagner Hi
12:24 schuster joined #koha
12:25 gmcharlt hi schuster
12:27 paul_p hi jwagner  & everyone
12:28 jwagner paul_p, question for you.  I'm working through the 3.2 version, and you have a syspref for OpacPrivacy.  I can't find where to apply it, though.  Am I missing something?
12:28 paul_p jwagner, I don't understand your question
12:29 jwagner I thought you had a feature for anonymizing patron reading history in this version, and the OpacPrivacy syspref seems to be for that, but I can't see that it does anything.  Is there something else that needs to be set?
12:29 schuster Hey all - looks like another day of speculation!
12:30 paul_p maybe the patch hasn't been applied by gmcharlt ?
12:30 paul_p schuster, right ! maybe we have more interesting things to do (like hacking ;-) )
12:30 jwagner I'm trying to identify where we have parallel development -- we have a feature for wiping reading history too.
12:30 jwagner schuster, speculation is our middle name :-)
12:30 gmcharlt paul_p: opacprivacy is present in the code
12:31 jwagner Turning the syspref off or on doesn't seem to make a difference, though -- I can still see old checkouts.
12:31 gmcharlt hmm, bug, then, I suppose
12:32 paul_p jwagner : the privacy is applied only when you run the anonymizer
12:33 jwagner A script?
12:33 paul_p tools/
12:33 jwagner OK, I'll check that out. Thanks.
12:35 jwagner I didn't see a place for the patron to opt in or out, though -- is it all or nothing?  i.e., every patron's history will get wiped?
12:35 paul_p jwagner, there's a script
12:35 paul_p where the patron can say 1- never anonymise, 2- follow the library rules 3- immediatly anonymize
12:36 jwagner But where does the patron say that?  I'm logged into the OPAC and I don't see an option.
12:41 paul_p jwagner, just sent you the patch I submitted in december
12:42 paul_p in (where is used), there is a new tab "my privacy"
12:43 paul_p that is displayed if syspref "OPacPrivacy" is ON
12:43 jwagner Got it.  Is that in head yet? I updated my system yesterday but am not seeing that tab.
12:43 jwagner The syspref is on.
12:44 paul_p just look in, you should see "my privacy"
12:44 paul_p if it is not, then ping galen and ask him about what may have happend ;-)
12:45 jwagner pinging gmcharlt :-)  I don't see that code in
12:46 * gmcharlt will check
12:46 gmcharlt jwagner: would you happen to have a synopsis of the areas of parallel development you've done?
12:46 paul_p gmcharlt, do you need my december patch ?
12:47 gmcharlt paul_p: nope, the archive has all
12:48 jwagner Overall I see about five major areas where we have overlap.  In a couple of cases, I think we can merge ours into yours; we're going to have to look at the others more closely.
12:49 gmcharlt what are the five areas?
12:49 jwagner The problem children are going to be batch item edit, batch item delete (both of which I think we can combine ours into BibLibre's), bib merge, reading history, and fast add.
12:49 jwagner There are a couple of others where our development was almost identical.  These five, though, take different approaches.
12:51 jwagner bib merge may be the easiest -- we took very different approaches, and both may be able to coexist without conflict.  The question is whether that would be too confusing for users.
12:52 gmcharlt that one may be resolved by having both in early 3.4 and seeing which one works best before settling on one when 3.4 is released
12:53 paul_p gmcharlt, we already have our bib merge in 3.2 (I think)
12:53 gmcharlt right
12:53 gmcharlt the PTFS version would go into 3.4, and we'd see which one "wins"
12:53 jwagner paul_p, ours is a different approach (lives under tools) -- there would be no direct code conflict, I think.  Just usability questions.
12:53 gmcharlt or else just have a system preference to choose one or the other
12:54 gmcharlt in the long run, though, there would be a code maintenance issue
12:54 paul_p ( my fault, but we have some other new features on the way, that I should add to the wiki...)
12:54 gmcharlt paul_p: yep, get on that, please :)
12:54 paul_p like bulkedit biblio
12:54 jwagner And to bugzilla?
12:54 paul_p jwagner, yep, on both
12:54 gmcharlt yep

12:55 paul_p did everyone see my announcement about alex_a being the new BibLibre developer ? (started yesterday)
12:55 gmcharlt hi alex_a
12:55 jwagner I think all of our current devel list is in bugzilla except for maybe one or two.  I have some new devel that I need to get sorted out & entered.
12:55 jwagner Welcome alex_a
12:56 alex_a Hi

13:26 munin jwagner: Quote #44: "<thd> People make bugs fairly much in the degree to which they contribute to the code" (added by gmcharlt at 04:07 PM, October 30, 2009)
13:27 schuster Question for you programmer type and release managers...  I am working on a command line batch load utility which is about done.  We mimicked the staff interface, and in doing so there are "responses/defaults" that can be done during a load.
13:29 schuster What our programmer did was to direct it to a file so if the table row was referenced as it loaded the file would also load the default.  My question is - where should that "default" file live?  I see the living in the cronjobs folder so is it ok for this "default" file to live there as well?

13:37 schuster jdavidb - must not be around... ;)
13:38 jwagner schuster, I'm ALWAYS looking for a way to avoid doing any work :-)  Sometimes that involves more work than doing the original work would have.....
13:38 gmcharlt schuster: misc/cronjobs is fine for now for that file
13:40 schuster thanks gmcharlt - he had setup a new directory during testing to house his temporary testing files, but I'm going to have him tweak a couple other things before we submit this.  I need to do a little more testing on 3.2 as it was based on 3.0 code, but I don't think there were any patron load modifications for 3.2.

15:59 owen Does your javascript match the table ID? Does the table have a <thead> and  a <tbody> ?
16:01 schuster Yes on table ID, checking on tbody I know it has a thead.

16:03 schuster now does have a tbody - but still no cute little dropdowns arrows for sorting. blah...

18:40 * collum was sort of filling in the blanks.
18:41 owen I'm pretty sure it was bacon.
18:41 collum That was one of my blanks.
18:42 jwagner I think there are other bacon-related quotes, so that's likely....

19:35 cm i figured!  i feel less crazy now.  thanks, owen.
19:35 jwagner I've seen that occasionally -- just refresh the page.
19:36 owen Incomplete stylesheet load maybe?
19:36 cm hmm, maybe. jwagner:  it's been that way a while now on my test server.

20:01 chris is a good way to paste those things

20:02 chris sounds like you are missing some issuing rules ... what version of koha? you can find out on the about page

20:04 CGI436 I was able to run the mysql query in question against my mysql server via the command line without any problem
20:04 chris so pretty close to latest master .. (one db update back)
20:05 chris hmm that error message doesnt have the full query
20:05 CGI436 let me see if I miss pasted

20:08 pastebot "CGI436" at pasted "mysql error" (3 lines) at
20:10 chris_n CGI436: is that paste correct?
20:10 chris still only looks like a fraction of the query
20:11 CGI436 That's all that shows up in the logs.
20:11 chris how did you test it then?
20:11 CGI436 There's only one query in that uses issuingrules
20:11 chris yes but it contains different variables every time
20:12 CGI436 It binds to a constant
20:12 chris it depends on the itemtype and the branch and the borrower category
20:13 CGI436 Let me look. It seemed to me it got a table of values
20:14 chris starts at line 2065 in C4/
20:15 chris great big query, with lots of joins
20:15 pastebot "CGI436" at pasted "issuing rules query" (6 lines) at

20:15 chris yeah thats not the query your error is complaing about
20:15 chris see /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 2079
20:16 sekjal the CanBookBeRenewed function
20:16 chris *nod*
20:16 CGI436 Great, I thought I was going crazy.
20:18 CGI436 So does this mean my "issuing rules" table is improperly structured, or improperly populated?
20:20 collum left #koha
20:20 chris_n bbl
20:21 chris im guessing the latter
20:21 chris but it could be the former too :)
20:21 CGI436 The news keeps getting better.  Am I right in thinking that I should be able to fix this via the web interface?
20:22 chris could you put a warn
20:22 chris actually ignore that
20:22 chris yeah check the circulation rules first
20:22 chris /cgi-bin/koha/admin/
20:23 CGI436 Thanks for your help.  I'll be back if I can't make progress.
20:23 chris good luck

20:48 * russ goes to get a coffee before meeting
20:49 CGI436 chris, are you still there?
20:49 schuster left #koha
20:50 chris yep, 10 minutes until a meeting about kohcon10 though :)
20:50 * richard follows russ' lead
20:50 CGI436 Thanks for your help.
20:50 CGI436 I wasn't able to find anything in my rules, but I don't really know what I'm looking for
20:50 CGI436 The problem occurs when I try and check out something that doesn't circulate
20:51 CGI436 to a faculty member
20:51 CGI436 but not when I try and check out the same item to myself.
20:51 CGI436 When I check out to myself, I get a litlle "do you want to override" message
20:52 CGI436 I just get a yellow bar without the override option when I check out to the faculty member.
20:52 CGI436 Does that spark anything in your imagination?
20:52 miguel-xercode joined #koha
20:56 chris and if you try a different itemtype?
20:57 CGI436 Do you mean try to check out an item of a different type, or change the type associated with this item?
20:58 BobB joined #koha
20:58 BobB Good morning #koha
20:58 Ropuch Try to check different item first - then you should be able to identify if problem is associated with patron-type or item-type

21:07 DebJo any obvious gaps? (I'd like to something buty havn't decided what yet :)
21:07 richard is there a list of what has been put forward so far?
21:07 BobB I thought I could do a paper on project governance - try to flesh out what it might mean and some options
21:07 Brooke brave man, you
21:08 russ BobB that would be cool
21:08 BobB Has anyone else offered to do that?
21:08 russ not as yet
21:08 Brooke ta da
21:08 russ nicole is the best one to talk about the papers
21:08 Brooke sold to the man in the second row
21:08 BobB The hardest part is 'what it is not'
21:08 chris koha in schools, koha + kete, faceted searching, open library and koha, setting up koha in a uni in india, one about GPL/sharing etc, and one from lee

21:09 chris tons of time
21:09 russ yep august
21:09 russ so i think we are doing pretty well for the moment :-)
21:10 russ so in summary, we have some talks, we want more, don't be afraid to put a submission in
21:10 Brooke grand
21:10 russ and more talks from librarians would be awesome
21:10 DebJo i'm thinking something about librarians working 'different;y' when they get involved with koha ie open source community rather than with vendors
21:10 chris that would be choice jo
21:10 DebJo that old 'learned helplessnes' chestnut
21:11 chris battered library syndrome
21:11 russ i'll sign you up now :-)
21:11 DebJo lol
21:11 Brooke yes indeed
21:11 chris i heard it described as today
21:11 DebJo maybe Brooke or Nicole and I could do it together :)
21:11 DebJo panel discussion format
21:11 Brooke I will do whatever you or Chris tell me to, hence dogsbody
21:12 chris DebJo: i think its best coming from a librarian, so you and brooke maybe
21:12 DebJo cool
21:12 chris you dont want vendors telling you how to behave with vendors :-)
21:13 Brooke psha
21:13 chris oh i know the title of your talk
21:13 Brooke next thing you say will be "You know, you should do open source stuff" ;)
21:13 chris "Dude, its my library,"
21:13 DebJo I'm not hip enough :)
21:13 chris heh
21:14 Ropuch ;>

21:15 russ so please update your links
21:15 russ and we have a logo
21:16 Brooke loves it

21:16 DebJo I do too
21:16 russ anyways
21:16 russ there is a bunch more content up there now
21:16 russ thanks to reed for the content on how to get to little old NZ from the US
21:17 reed np
21:17 Brooke dunno about this week
21:17 Brooke but last week airfares dipped substantially
21:17 Brooke from about 1500 to about 1000 lowest
21:17 chris lee has booked her tickets already
21:17 chris hopefully last week
21:18 DebJo I've booked my apartment already

21:18 russ rachel is going to be working on a partners programme/ideas for parteners and kids when she gets back from her trip
21:18 DebJo yay Rach
21:18 Brooke unfortunately, there is no way a charter jet is viable unless we rob a bank or steal a corporate one
21:19 Brooke but I did check into it
21:19 chris :)
21:19 gmcharlt the chartering or the stealing^Wborrowing?
21:19 Brooke >.>
21:19 Brooke <.<
21:19 Brooke all of the above
21:19 gmcharlt :)
21:20 russ i think the site all hangs together now and there are no dead links, but if anyone spots anything, please let either chris or myself know
21:20 Brooke will do
21:20 richard sure
21:20 russ i am still looking for ideas around t-shirt printing
21:21 russ i was thinking cafepress, but there was some talk of that being a bit pricey
21:21 gmcharlt would a redirect from to be out of order?
21:21 Brooke
21:21 Brooke they'll print anything on anything else
21:21 chris nope, seems fine to me gmcharlt
21:21 liw russ, would it be helpful to run a link checker against the site?
21:21 Brooke might not be the cheapest, but they usually don't screw up, and if they do they fixerate it
21:21 DebJo cafepress do good quality sweatshirts and heavy tees though
21:22 russ Brooke: thanks i'll have a look
21:22 russ liw: you offering? :-)
21:22 liw russ, sure
21:22 russ liw: great thanks

21:25 russ but if anyone has anything to add there, just send it through to me
21:25 BobB Ha!  The ditch is one of the roughest oceans!!:)
21:25 chris you have to be fast to survive in aus
21:26 russ but please encourage people to look at the site
21:26 russ chris: we might need to take the video of the kingswood racing off the template :-)
21:26 chris :)
21:26 chris thats on their cos that video was made by librarians :)
21:27 russ heh

21:29 DebJo go Calyx ++
21:29 DebJo and libriotech too I guess
21:29 chris libriotech dont currently have a logo, which is why they are just listed
21:29 chris they would be the first logo otherwise as they donated first
21:29 russ Chris and I are working with another sponsor that means we will be able to meet our minimum target for the venue
21:30 DebJo fantastic
21:30 richard cool
21:30 DebJo just looking, the second depoist is not due until 25th July $1046.25
21:31 russ once i have sorted that out and finalised it, then i will go out to approach the other sponsors
21:31 russ DebJo: ah cool, good to know that
21:31 IrmaCalyx it would be nice to have some libraries as sponsors not just service providers...
21:31 DebJo HLT will kick in $500
21:31 russ i think that should be no problem
21:31 * Brooke cheers
21:31 russ thanks HLT :-)
21:31 DebJo (i'm thinking donation in lieu of registrtaion fee)
21:32 miguel-xercode I would like to know which are the economic conditions to become a sponsor
21:32 Brooke modest and scaling :)
21:32 russ miguel-xercode: not sure i understand
21:32 DebJo give enough that it feels good
21:32 IrmaCalyx DebJo ...I like that !
21:33 BobB russ: Is it true that donations so far are in the range of $250 to $1,000 NZ - is that good guidance for others?
21:33 russ miguel-xercode: if you are interested in sponsoring, then perhaps we can talk off list
21:33 russ BobB: yep good point
21:33 miguel-xercode yes
21:34 DebJo dons to date: $250, $750, $1000
21:34 IrmaCalyx NZ $
21:34 DebJo yep

21:35 Brooke thank you miguel
21:36 russ miguel-xercode: no problem, thank you for showing up today
21:37 chris sorry phone :(
21:37 russ ok so in summary, we have enough money to secure the venue, we will still be seeking more sponsorship so that we can provide more for attendees
21:37 russ but it is all going well at the moment, and will ramp up in April
21:37 Brooke wunderbar
21:37 nengard joined #koha

21:38 russ ok so that is the agenda sorted
21:38 russ just a note, i havent heard from Mark at ASHS
21:39 russ so no more detail on the road trip just yet
21:39 DebJo re road trip?
21:39 DebJo shall i email him since i first raised the issue
21:39 russ sure
21:39 DebJo and happy to back him up if he can't do that job
21:39 russ i think chris and i would like the road trip to be SEP :-)
21:40 liw what is this road trip?
21:40 DebJo as in seperate or September
21:40 russ someone else's problem :-)
21:40 richard someone else's problem
21:40 DebJo sweet as
21:40 russ once you have it sorted, just let us know the details and we can post it to the site
21:40 DebJo sure
21:41 Brooke dorky Librarian question
21:41 Brooke do we have a bibliography yet?
21:41 BobB Cos' folks will have to know - to book flight to Auckland, not Wellington
21:41 russ Brooke: no, you offering ?
21:42 nengard bibliography of what?
21:42 Brooke it can be construed as such, I just don't want any sniggers from NZ librarians when I screw it up and clutter it with tourist stuff :)
21:42 Brooke not that I think y'all would do so
21:42 Brooke reads to get you in the mood for conference
21:42 Brooke and help with travel and such
21:42 DebJo penguin history of NZ
21:42 russ right we have some travel related links on the site
21:43 BobB NZ History of Penguins:)
21:43 russ but if you want to write one up, then we can publish it sure
21:43 Brooke *nod*
21:43 DebJo (skip the 50s and 60s bit - was boring)
21:43 russ DebJo: so civic reception
21:44 DebJo k
21:44 russ what were your thoughts there? are the council going to pay for a bus or two?
21:44 chris liw: there is an idea for ppl flying into auckland to take a roadtrip down to wellington, with some of the koha librarians from auckland
21:44 DebJo at the trust meeting sthe councillors with library responsibilities asked me to write to the mayor and ask him to host a small civic reception in Levin for 100 - 150 people :)
21:45 DebJo curent mayor said yes - happy to.
21:45 DebJo but one proviso is we have an electin betweennow and then and if current mayor gets dumped new mayor may not want to...
21:45 russ ok sounds cool - so does that mean a logistics effort to get people from Wellington to Levin?
21:45 russ or is the council going to provide for that?
21:45 DebJo but my money says existing mayor is sitting pretty
21:46 CGI552 joined #koha
21:46 DebJo so council would pay for the reception ie food and drinks
21:46 DebJo getting people wgtn to lvn and back again is not included.
21:46 russ right
21:46 DebJo but i would like to look at funding for a bus or 2
21:46 chris would need 2 or 34
21:46 chris heh
21:46 chris 2 or 3
21:46 russ right - i have a good contact at a bus company
21:46 DebJo and we could look at combining it with a dinner somewhere
21:47 BobB OK, so idea would be hire a bus, get to Levin, tour HLT, civic reception, return to Wellington - delegates pay bus fare?
21:47 DebJo so leave wgtn 4pm,
21:47 chris if the train wasnt so annoying could train to paraparaumu and bus from there
21:47 russ DebJo i suggest earlier than that
21:47 chris s/annoying/broken/
21:47 russ 4pm is going to be hell to get through Kapiti
21:47 DebJo can I get some pricing together before thenext meeting?
21:47 miguel-xercode left #koha
21:47 russ that sounds fine
21:47 nengard left #koha
21:47 russ if you can come up with a proposal that would be great
21:48 russ and then we can discuss it
21:48 DebJo ok: we'll come back with a proposal incl pricing, timing etc.
21:48 russ if you like I can talk to my contact and get you some bus pricing as well
21:48 DebJo that would be brilliant Russ
21:48 russ ok so i think that is a good point to close
21:48 russ BobB and Irma I would like to catch up with you some time
21:49 russ to talk about some ideas
21:49 russ but at the rate it is going, it will be early next week before i have some clear time
21:49 russ i will ping you then
21:49 BobB russ: any time; today is OK
21:50 russ Any one got any last questions? or can I wrap this up?
21:50 BobB russ: next week is ok too
21:50 BobB Next meeting?
21:51 russ Monday 19th April 22:00 UTC

23:00 bankhead can't get Authen::CAS::Client to install -- any advice?
23:04 chris whats the error its giving you?
23:05 bankhead make test had returned bad status, won't install without force
23:06 bankhead when I did cpan Authen::CAS::Client
23:06 chris have you ever installed a module from the tarball, (not using cpan)
23:06 bankhead not yet
23:07 chris if so, i would suggest doing that, and seeing what test actually failed, and if its harmless do make install anyway
23:07 chris (it might be trying to connect to a cas server, which will fail as you dont have one)
23:07 bankhead ok
23:10 bankhead Authen-CAS-Client-0.05.tar.gz ?
23:10 chris yep
23:11 bankhead thx
23:34 bankhead make test said all good
23:36 chris cool, sudo make install
23:36 chris and you should be done
23:36 liw left #koha
23:36 bankhead yeah I did sudo make install
23:36 chris cool
23:37 bankhead I think it is good
23:37 chris yep, should be fine
23:37 bankhead then can I go back and do my koha again?
23:37 chris was that the only missing module?
