02:40 wasabi jcamins,  nice response too dude!
02:40 jcamins Thanks.
02:41 jcamins I've been wanting to send that e-mail for weeks, and this was the first time it seemed like it actually made sense.
02:46 wasabi a nice historical reminder from chris_n  too...
02:47 wasabi "This matter has already been decided once. The community has established rules to govern the choosing of a body of representatives . Those rules may be reviewed here:[…]-committee-rules/"
02:49 jcamins wasabi: yeah, but while that allows for the possibility of a new foundation or association, it doesn't explain why we'd want one.
02:52 wasabi ie: 40% blah

06:08 yhager I need to choose my MARC flavour - which should I select unimarc or marc21 (no idea)?
06:15 braedon yhager: i believe marc21 is the more up to date format

07:07 chris wow its poke the hornets nest day :)
07:09 gmcharlt yhager: where are you located?
07:10 gmcharlt it's generally best to pick the flavor that is used by catalogers in your country
07:11 gmcharlt as that makes it easier to grab MARC records from local Z39.50 sources
07:15 chris good grief gmcharlt have you caught 2 young children disease?
07:15 chris isnt it 5am or something?
07:17 gmcharlt no, only 3:30

08:00 chris heh
08:03 larsw david lang seems to me to either be rather ignorant or, worse, a troll
08:03 larsw not just about the ownership of the koha name, but in general
08:03 chris yeah i think a troll, but it did give me the opportunity to point out HLT own the EU mark on it
08:04 chris which altho biblibre did a blogpost on, im not sure is widely known

17:21 jcamins_a yhager: you'd decide whether to use UNIMARC or MARC21 based on what libraries around you use.
17:21 jcamins_a Since you're in Canada, probably MARC21.
17:23 jcamins_a yhager: I don't know how to check what 3.0.x is using, but in 3.2 if you look in the Cataloging tab in the sysprefs, there's a "marcflavour" syspref.
17:23 jcamins_a Also, your librarians will know.
17:26 jcamins_a yhager: if you have titles in the 245 field, it's MARC21, if the titles are in the 200 field, it's UNIMARC.

17:41 jcamins_a Morning.
17:47 yhager jcamins_a: thanks, I chose MARC21, since I saw that is what used in Canada. I also found the same admin pref marcflavour in 3.0
17:47 yhager jcamins_a: since you woke up, another q - is it enough to backup the mysql koha database?
17:48 jcamins_a yhager: that will preserve all your data and settings, yes.
17:48 jcamins_a is now known as jcamins
17:49 jcamins If you made any local customizations to the code, you'll want to save those somehow, too.
17:49 yhager jcamins: sure, thanks. My 3.2 install is ready. Thanks!
17:50 jcamins Yay!
