01:10 Oak \o
01:48 wajasu whilst running my automated preseed squeeze + koha 3.8.1 (koha-common), i have the "koha 3.2-3.4 upgrade  notice" that is always shown.  now if i could get that to be ignored so my vm builder script would run through without any prompt, I would be happy.
01:48 wajasu preseed.cfg as in debian installer.
01:58 mtompset joined #koha
01:59 mtompset Greetings, #koha folk.
02:03 Oak hello :)
02:06 mtompset Hi, Oak. :)
02:06 mtompset I'm using Koha 3.6.3, what version do you use, Oak?
02:07 Oak i use 3.6.4
02:09 mtompset I think I found a bug in, but I'm not sure what else to look for in bugzilla.
02:09 wizzyrea what bug?
02:09 wahanui bug is always bad news, particularly if you haven't filed it yet.
02:10 mtompset $error may be undefined.
02:10 mtompset Near the top, $error is set to a CGI parameter.
02:11 mtompset Then later on, past a subroutine in the middle of the code (YUCK!) it is used to build a key for the template.
02:11 mtompset The C4::Template catches the error and generates an error log entry.
02:11 wizzyrea seems likely there's not a bug for something like that - unless it causes a functional issue it probably wouldn't be reported
02:11 mtompset A value without a key.
02:12 mtompset [Mon Jun 04 11:50:36 2012] [error] [client] [Mon Jun  4 11:50:36 2012] Problem = a value of 1 has been passed to param without key at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 186.
02:13 Oak i think you should file a bug report... later on, then some other issues pops up because of this, then your bug report will save someone's time instead of hunting it down...
02:13 mtompset I always have a hard time determining what to categorize the bug as.
02:14 mtompset I mean component.
02:14 Oak you can always ask here. wizzyrea is here so we can ask her...
02:14 mtompset This isn't really a Template error.
02:15 mtompset What would be component-wise?
02:16 mtompset Staff client?
02:16 wahanui Staff client is for the staff in the library, OPAC is for patrons
02:22 wizzyrea circulation
02:22 wahanui circulation is really much faster with that... But also display of biblios with many items......
02:22 wizzyrea sorry was afk a moment
02:37 mtompset Not a problem.
02:37 mtompset I followed the bug further back...
02:37 mtompset Found this:
02:38 mtompset $input->redirect("/cgi-bin/koha/circ/circu​$borrowernumber") :                 $input->redirect("/cgi-bin/koha/members/mor​$borrowernumber") ;         exit;           # You can only send 1 redirect!  After that, content or other headers don't matter.
02:38 mtompset If someone put a comment there, then why didn't someone clean it up?
02:39 mtompset That's from around line 366.
02:40 mtompset It's the only line that refers to
03:04 Soupermanito left #koha
03:09 mtompset Hmmm.... noticed a potentially larger problem...
03:09 mtompset grep `find . -name '*pl'`
03:10 mtompset I just noticed some pass bornum.
03:10 mtompset Some pass borrowernumber
03:10 mtompset And only some pass error.
03:36 mtompset Ah... It's an older bug, I think.
03:36 mtompset bug 7360
03:37 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7360 critical, P3, ---, paul.poulain, Pushed to Stable , Importing a SQL file for frameworks based on Default Framework deletes the default framework
03:37 mtompset Oops...
03:37 mtompset bug 7630
03:37 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7630 minor, P5 - low, ---, kyle.m.hall, NEW , Warning on about param without key
03:40 mtompset And I believe the same solution will also solve 7352
03:41 mtompset but 7352
03:41 mtompset bug 7352
03:41 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7352 normal, P5 - low, ---, kyle.m.hall, NEW , generates error in related to missing $key value
04:05 Oak joined #koha
04:40 cait joined #koha
04:41 Oak Guten Morgen cait :)
04:41 cait good morning Oak :)
04:42 Oak everything okay there in Edinburgh?
04:43 cait yep
04:43 Oak good.
04:43 mtompset Good day, to both of you. :)
04:44 Oak :) and to you
04:44 cait hi mtompset
04:46 mtompset So, how is a bug assigned to someone? Do they take it, or is it automatically assigned?
04:46 cait they do take it
04:46 cait if a bug is still marked NEW than noone is working on it
04:47 mtompset :(
04:47 cait hm or so it hsould be, but it sometimes hard to tell because people forget
04:47 cait are we tlaking about a specific bug?
04:47 mtompset I've encountered a bug that was reported back in March.
04:47 mtompset bug 7352
04:47 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7352 normal, P5 - low, ---, kyle.m.hall, NEW , generates error in related to missing $key value
04:48 mtompset bug 7630
04:48 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7630 minor, P5 - low, ---, kyle.m.hall, NEW , Warning on about param without key
04:48 mtompset different modules called
04:48 mtompset But the bug fix, should be the same.
04:49 cait perhaps you could provide a patch? :)
04:49 mtompset Of course, I didn't check out any template files which might break as a result of the change I suggested.
04:49 cait we could help you with that
04:51 mtompset Well, in around line 446....
04:51 cait I think it's only a warn maybe, so not really a but
04:51 cait but tidying the logs is a good idea
04:51 mtompset but it could be fixed.
04:51 cait I did some patches for the opac a while ago
04:51 cait lots of things could be fixed
04:51 mtompset around 446 there is a massive $template->param()
04:52 mtompset if the '$error => 1' was split out.
04:52 mtompset into a seperate $template->param($error => 1) if $error;
04:52 mtompset less error logs.
04:53 cait but maybe unhappy templates, not sure
04:53 cait sorry, just woke up :)
04:53 cait I would suggest sending in a patch
04:53 mtompset True...
04:53 mtompset nice thought, but I don't know how to: generate a patch, send a patch, etc.
04:54 mtompset and I haven't gone looking at the template file(s) yet.
04:56 cait that we can help you with :)
04:57 cait and there are tutorials on a wiki, it's really not hard
04:57 mtompset only reference to error is [% IF ( error ) %]
04:57 cait the hard part is knowing what goes wrong
04:57 mtompset How is that evaluated if error is undefined?
04:58 mtompset And what if error is empty?
04:58 mtompset where is patch tutorials
04:58 mtompset where is patch
04:58 cait git?
04:58 wahanui i guess patch is pretty old now, good luck
04:58 wahanui rumour has it git is[…]Control_Using_Git
05:00 cait hm there is also[…]eptance/Rejection
05:01 cait if you have a git installation, we can walk you through it the first time
05:01 mtompset Let me see... I think I have a git version lying around here somewhere...
05:01 mtompset (hunting through VMs)
05:06 mtompset I think it is this one... (wait for the boot)
05:06 cait ok
05:06 cait basically
05:06 cait you update to latest master with a git pull
05:06 mtompset done that.
05:06 cait then you want a new branch to work on for your patch (never work on master branch)
05:06 mtompset (before)
05:06 cait git branch -b <yournameofchoice>
05:06 cait then you work work work....
05:06 cait and test
05:07 mtompset That's my problem...
05:07 cait and then git add <changed file>
05:07 cait git commit
05:07 mtompset Don't have data to test.
05:07 cait and you are almost done
05:07 cait you could use the sample data
05:07 cait we have sample patrons that can be loaded on install
05:08 mtompset okay... so, recap:
05:08 mtompset create a branch: git branch -b my_shiny_new_bughunt_related_to_7630
05:08 mtompset then I tweak
05:08 mtompset then I test.
05:09 mtompset (that's going to be the harder part)
05:09 mtompset then I git add
05:09 mtompset (do i have to do full path?)
05:09 cait relative
05:09 cait git status will show you
05:09 cait which files you have changed and the paths
05:10 rangi git checkout -b branchname
05:10 mtompset and if all the tests seem good.
05:10 rangi is what i do
05:10 cait oh right
05:10 cait typo
05:10 cait sorry
05:10 cait thx for catching that rangi :)
05:10 rangi git branch will make the branch, but you wont be on it it, git checkout -b makes the branchand puts you on it in one go
05:10 mtompset git checkout -b {mybranchname choice}
05:11 rangi yep
05:11 rangi that is shorthand for
05:11 rangi git branch mybranchname
05:11 rangi git checkout mybranchname
05:11 mtompset instead of or in addition to git branch?
05:11 rangi instead of
05:11 mtompset oh okay...
05:11 mtompset so git branch -b newbranch
05:12 mtompset git checkout newbranch
05:12 mtompset is the same as
05:12 mtompset git checkout -b newbranch
05:12 rangi the -b doesnt work with git branch
05:12 rangi cait typoed
05:12 cait yeah, sleepy cait :)
05:12 rangi but otherwise yes
05:12 mtompset okay, but less the -b, those two commands and the same as the one?
05:12 rangi checkout -b  is a shortcut
05:12 mtompset Okay good.
05:13 rangi and you can specify the branch you want to create it from
05:13 rangi git checkout -b newbranch master
05:13 mtompset is there a 3.6.3 branch? ;)
05:13 rangi will create a branch, based on master, and check it out
05:13 rangi there is a 3.6.3 tag
05:13 cait mtompset: there is but you want to create patches on master
05:13 cait from master...
05:14 rangi but you always want to be writing patches against master
05:14 rangi so they will apply
05:14 cait and they will get from there into the lower versions :)
05:14 rangi then the release maintainer
05:14 rangi which is jcamins_away for 3.6.x.
05:14 cait ok, i will let rangi explain and get ready for the day :)
05:14 rangi will pull it back
05:14 mtompset okay... so... recap from the top
05:14 rangi and ill do the same for the 3.8.x branch
05:15 mtompset git checkout -b newbranch
05:15 mtompset tweak
05:15 mtompset do some testing
05:15 mtompset everything works
05:15 mtompset git add
05:15 rangi git commit
05:15 mtompset Right?
05:16 rangi write a nice commit message, starting with Bug bugnumber
05:16 rangi and you have your first commit
05:16 rangi from there
05:16 wahanui from there is no trend
05:16 rangi you can make a patch
05:16 rangi git format-patch origin/master
05:17 rangi (that says write a patch from this commit that will reply on the upstream master)
05:17 mtompset origin/master?
05:17 mtompset why not origin or master?
05:17 rangi master is your local copy
05:17 rangi origin/master is specify the mster branch from origin (upstream)
05:18 rangi it's a good way to make sure you are making the patch against the write branch
05:18 mtompset oh, so the git commit doesn't hit the git repo at origin?
05:19 rangi nope
05:19 rangi distributed version control ftw
05:19 rangi it makes a commit locally
05:19 mtompset *WHEW*
05:19 mtompset That is like my biggest fear.
05:19 mtompset I don't want to commit up to the source repo.
05:20 rangi yep, you cant
05:21 rangi even if you wanted to
05:21 rangi :)
05:21 mtompset For once in my life, I'm glad I can't do that. :)
05:21 rangi ok, im gonna go start my day too
05:21 mtompset Thanks for the help.
05:21 mtompset Have a good day (24 hour period).
05:22 Oak good luck rangi and cait
05:22 Oak have fun
05:23 Oak mtompset++
05:24 mtompset Thanks, Oak.
05:24 mtompset I suppose this is a "Don't ask why" thing? ;)
05:24 Oak yup :)
05:28 mtompset I see the bug location has moved in the master... someone else got annoyed with a subroutine in the middle of the code flow. :)

06:58 mtompset breakfast can be defined as the first meal of the day.
06:58 mtompset This means if you don't eat until 5pm, that's breakfast.
06:59 mtompset It also helps you time travel. ;)

08:05 mtompset Hmmm... pirate Oak?
08:07 Oak :)
08:08 mtompset Do you play XBox at all?
08:08 mtompset Your comment made me think of "Age of Booty"
08:09 Oak nope. don't have it.
08:09 Oak and i have not played video games in ages...
08:10 Oak I used to play Age of Empires II with friends a long time ago... good days
08:10 mtompset Then what caused the pirate greeting?
08:10 Oak *sigh*
08:10 Oak too many questions mtompset :)
08:11 Oak just to make people smile i guess
08:11 mtompset Okay... I get it.
08:11 Oak a simple hello is fine... but sometime i try different ...
08:11 Oak stuff
08:11 Oak :)
08:11 mtompset Sorry, I start thinking of lots of questions when I'm bu hunting.
08:11 mtompset ^bu^bug^
08:11 Oak oh no worries
08:11 Oak you are doing fine here
08:12 mtompset This bug I encountered seems to have generated several related bug reports.
08:12 mtompset some more related than oters.
08:12 mtompset ^oters^others^
08:13 Oak :) your Perl knowledge is good I think (I "think"... because I don't know Perl myself). And you can help Koha a lot.
08:13 mtompset You a librarian type then and less of a programmer type?
08:14 Oak i'm a web developer actually, and did my MLIS just now (project report pending)...
08:15 mtompset so you prefer PHP?
08:15 mtompset ASP?
08:15 Oak well, we use Joomla/CSS/HTML mainly.
08:16 mtompset Ah, okay.
08:16 mtompset With Koha integrated?
08:16 mtompset or at least linked in?
08:17 Oak just did my first Koha installation for a university's management science department library (as my MLIS project). so you can say i'm new to Koha.
08:18 Oak
08:18 mtompset That's about where I am... though, I dont have any library credentials.
08:18 Oak it will be linked to university's website soon. not finished yet. i don't like some color combination. plus need some content some links.
08:19 Oak you'll get there :)
08:22 * Oak goes to the kitchen
08:29 * mtompset hopes it isn't for a huge knife. ;)

09:15 cait mtompset: i am not on facebook - there might be something I am not aware of
09:15 matts I don't think you can search by tag on facebook, can you ?
09:16 mtompset I just did a search for koha on facebook.
09:16 mtompset Nothing of significance.
09:17 mtompset Actually, the search functionality in groups is relatively good.
09:17 mtompset If I remember some keywords in a status update, I can find it.
09:17 matts okay
09:17 mtompset Sadly, they don't have that functionality on my own facebook page.
09:17 mtompset Truly sucky that way.
09:19 mtompset I saw someone say that plack-compatibility could give a 150% performance boost.
09:19 mtompset Is that even in a virtual machine with only 204MB of ram?
09:19 nengard that's what paul_p said - I just typed it out :)
09:20 talljoy check the Koha wiki for more details

10:48 mtompset Why wouldn't it be @kohails?
10:48 mtompset Seems that kohails is a valid twitter user.
10:49 cait you use the tag to mark tweets for that topic
10:49 cait so everyone can use the tags and you can search for them
10:50 mtompset Oh right... something about the newsletter, right?
10:50 nengard #kohails is a way to search for tweets about Koha - @kohails is a way to talk to the Koha twitter user (which is really a few of us and a bot posting info about Koha)
10:51 cait ok, nengard can explain it way better :)
10:51 slef ok I'm off back to twitter

10:52 mtompset integrated... right.
10:52 cait

11:33 jcamins_away Hello from Lawrence, KS.
11:33 eythian joined #koha
11:37 mtompset Hello, jcamins_away
11:39 mtompset So, how are you this morning?
11:39 mtompset I was reading through bugzilla and the wiki this morning. Saw your name a couple times. :)
11:39 mtompset It's evening here now.
11:40 jcamins I'm doing pretty well. A bit sleepy.
11:40 jcamins And insulted that the cat spent forty-five minutes whimpering at the door for attention, then ran away and hid the moment I got up to scratch his ears.
11:41 mtompset Well, it is rather early in KS.
11:41 mtompset It's like what? 5:40am or 6:40am?
11:41 jcamins 6:40.
11:45 medmondson joined #koha
11:49 jcamins mtompset: I saw you've been busy patching things. :)
11:52 mtompset or at least commenting on them. :)
11:54 mtompset I haven't quite got to the patching stage yet.
11:58 mtompset By the way, are their reasons that Koha is debianist?
11:58 mtompset vs redhat that is
11:58 mtompset ^their^there^
12:01 jcamins mtompset: that's what everyone uses.
12:01 jcamins mtompset: just a chicken and egg thing.
12:01 jcamins The people who wanted to spend time on packaging preferred Debian, so they did Debian packages.
12:01 jcamins Then those of us who started later used Debian because hey, Debian was already better supported.
12:05 mtompset I'm using Ubuntu. :P
12:05 medmondson Having been a Debianist for years I have recently moved into a red hat/windows environment.  Its a tad disorientating and I have had to change my attitudes!  Also now I am installing services I am finding that many of the apps that I want to install are better supported under Debian.
12:06 mtompset I find I still prefer yum over apt-get.
12:07 mtompset But when in Rome.... ;)

12:52 medmondson mtompset you Debian comment above has reopened the debate in this office.  we have had to move away from each other to take a breather. ; >
12:52 mtompset Sorry for causing a feud.
12:53 nengard joined #koha
12:53 mtompset It's just that such a useful product should be shared with as many people as possible.
12:53 mtompset This means cross-OS friendliness.
12:54 mtompset Sanders on the Zebra mailing list was trying to set up Koha under CentOS.
12:54 mtompset It sounds like he succeeded. :)
12:57 jcamins mtompset: agreed. The problem is that CentOS is overwhelming.
12:57 jcamins (for those of us who only have experience with Debian)
12:57 ago43 joined #koha
12:58 mtompset most linux systems are overwhelming for those who only have windows experience.
12:58 jcamins lol
12:58 jcamins Touche.
12:59 jcamins Also, I used RedHat waaaaay back, and rpm sucked back then.
12:59 mtompset still does.
12:59 mtompset But yum is friendly enough.
12:59 jcamins I think my experience predated yum.
13:00 mtompset Okay... I have another bug to report... nothing major, just annoying for installation.
13:00 bengard joined #koha
13:01 jcamins mtompset: there are lots of those. The more eyes on the system, the better.
13:01 mtompset there is a handy little script ./install_misc/ (or something like that)
13:01 mtompset there is also a handy perl program (or something like that)
13:01 jcamins Is it out of date again?
13:01 mtompset the ubuntu.packages is missing a line.
13:02 irma joined #koha
13:02 jcamins Yeah, we have _got_ to find a better way to deal with that. It's always going out of sync.
13:02 mtompset well, the problem is that does a perl check.
13:02 mtompset the ubuntu script does an apt-cache check.
13:03 mtompset if there was a base file....
13:03 paul_p joined #koha
13:03 mtompset for the <apt-get library>,perl cpan equivalent,required
13:04 mtompset for each, then both programs could read the same data file when checking, and they'd be both up to date by reading the same source file.
13:04 * druthb blames jcamins
13:04 jcamins Oh, that makes sense.
13:04 * jcamins protests.
13:04 * druthb rebuts.
13:05 mtompset getting blamed makes sense, or my idea?
13:05 jcamins Your idea.
13:05 druthb him getting blamed makes sense, too.
13:05 mtompset by the way the missing file is libdatatime-format-mysql-perl
13:05 mtompset DATE time.
13:05 mtompset I frequently mix data and date.
13:06 mtompset libdatetime-format-mysql-perl
13:06 jcamins One could use that very cool apt-file command to determine on the fly which packages had the missing dependencies.
13:06 kyleh_ joined #koha
13:06 mtompset only if the apt-file results were unique.
13:07 mtompset Generally, when I run the ./
13:07 mtompset -m
13:07 mtompset I take a major portion of the name
13:07 mtompset and then
13:07 mtompset aptitude search datetime-format-mysql
13:08 mtompset because generally....
13:08 mtompset BlAh::BLAH::blah
13:08 mtompset means blah-blah-blah in the aptitude search
13:09 libsysguy joined #koha
13:09 mtompset The problem is that sometimes, depending on OS and version of OS...
13:09 mtompset blah-blah-blah isn't available as a package, but it may be available via CPAN.
13:10 jcamins Right. But we can have a script that tries first.
13:11 mtompset Well, I like ./
13:11 mtompset It's usually more up to date.
13:13 mtompset Also, the ubuntu stuff is pointing at yaz3.
13:13 alex_a joined #koha
13:13 mtompset yaz4 replaces it.
13:14 libsysguy everytime someone talks about yaz I hear the birth control commercial
13:14 wajasu i did a script for archlinux 2 years ago.  I really wanted that "base list" of dependencies.  It would be nice if if could be given the smarts to spit out the list of package deps and desired versions, for other distributions as well.  archlinux has its own perl package naming convention.  at least the deps could be maintained at koha's repos.
13:18 mtompset C4/Installer/
13:18 mtompset Has a nice structure of all the data.
13:18 wajasu i ran a koha server under this "rolling" release distribution, but once deployed in production, 8 months later, the distribution had fallen too far back to update its packages.  so now i think a "stable" server is the way to go.
13:19 mtompset It would be nice if that structure was modified to include the equivalent Ubuntu package names
13:20 mtompset Or perhaps if the structure was offset by an external mapping file.
13:20 mtompset This would allow for people to take the perl module name, pass it through a function, and come out with the OS' apt-get equivalent.
13:21 wajasu i am now thinking that if a kvm-based image is performant enough, the devs could develop for debian, and different distributions would just worry about keeping the virtual machine running across the years.
13:21 NateC joined #koha
13:22 mtompset Well, if you control the host, that method would work.
13:22 mtompset However, not everyone has control of their host.
13:23 alex_a joined #koha
13:25 mtompset Hmm.... C4/Installer/PerlDep....
13:25 mtompset That gives me an idea!
13:26 talljoy joined #koha
13:27 drojf joined #koha
13:28 alex_a joined #koha
13:35 wajasu another thing I had to do was install perl packages in a certain order, since those deps pulled in more deps.  it took hours to figure out how.
13:37 wajasu plus arch would update to newer perl versions (OS needed).  but koha didn't.  thus catch-22.
13:38 wajasu i also tried some perl distribution environment boostrapper (brew i think it was called).  i had success to automate using cpan-minus or such.

14:25 mtompset I'm just curious as to what values debian folks see.
14:26 jcamins Defaults to latin1.
14:26 zioha joined #koha
14:27 mtompset but latin1 isn't UTF-8.
14:27 mtompset What if you have some bizarre character in your titles?
14:28 mtompset The system I'm working with could end up with Chinese titles, Thai titles, Filipino titles, English titles, etc.
14:28 mtompset I don't think latin1 would cut it.
14:29 jcamins mtompset: but it doesn't matter.
14:29 jcamins mtompset: that's why Koha sets everything manually to utf-8.
14:30 mtompset Are you sure the front end entry of utf-8 to a back-end latin1 is going to get transformed back to utf-8 in the display later on when it is looked up?

14:31 jcamins Yes.
14:31 jcamins I have Hebrew, Arabic, and Russian records.
14:32 jcamins It might not display right when you log in from the command line without you changing the client encoding, but it'll work fine in Koha.
14:34 mtompset I put this into my.cnf just in case:
14:34 mtompset character-set-server=utf8 collation-server=utf8_general_ci skip-character-set-client-handshake
14:34 mtompset I wish the cut and paste got the \n's better.

16:20 francharb cait, it's pretty specific...
16:20 cait francharb: but I think it might require using easy analytics and is the numbe rof items you linked? (perhaps)
16:20 nengard francharb yes, jcamins is best to answer that, but I can explain it a little bit
16:21 francharb nengard, cait, thank you! we can talk about it later then!
16:22 Morthland Can I trigger a test email somehow?

16:28 * oleonard wonders what the q/a is about?
16:29 nengard general questions about Koha and teaching staff about Koha
16:30 nengard one question was about feature checklists
16:30 nengard and are they valuable
16:30 nengard the entire panel says "no"
16:30 jcamins Feature checklists?
16:30 nengard checklists have a bias from the person who wrote it
16:30 nengard so :
16:30 wizzyrea_mibbit mgeist just signed off on her first patch :)
16:30 nengard suspending holds  Yes/No
16:30 talljoy mgeist++
16:31 nengard that's an easy one - but if one ILS calls it 'community outreach' and another calls it 'circ rules' then when it says 'no' it looks like it's not there when in reality the feature is there
16:31 cait mgeist++ :)
16:32 nengard "features are now freedom is forever" says chris
16:32 * talljoy is reminded of Mel Gibson's portrayal of WIlliam Wallace....'FREEDOM'.

20:12 bencahill jcamins: Okay, thanks.
20:13 jcamins bencahill: actually, someone updated the instructions.
20:13 jcamins So I was mistaken.
20:13 jcamins You can follow those, except you have to skip step six.
20:13 kathryn good morning!

20:29 slef airnz--
20:29 slef sorry my mistake
20:29 sekjal  no longer has a google page rank
20:29 slef cait is not our hero
20:29 slef sekjal: returns?
20:29 cait sekjal: wow
20:30 cait how can this happen? did we get blocked or something?
20:30 slef cait is queen of kohacon12
20:30 sekjal not blocked
20:30 cait I haven't even updated the schedule yet slef
20:30 sekjal we're still getting some results
20:30 slef cait: you've 12 hours ;)
20:30 cait ah, i will do it in the morning then :)
20:31 slef sooner the better...
20:31 sekjal returns subdomains, but not the main page
20:31 cait sarah handed me the instructions :)
20:31 slef then we can make more changes
20:31 sekjal returns nothing
20:31 slef now I need to install stuff for jwagner's talk
20:31 slef sekjal: it never used www
20:32 slef sekjal: don't get the www-or-not debate restarted ;)
20:32 SJeffery I say use www!
20:33 sekjal I was just using www as a means of being more specific, ie excluding,, etc
20:33 slef sekjal: yeah. naw
20:33 SJeffery (I can't help myself)
20:34 rangi thats odd its fallen out, it was difintely in there a couple of days ago
20:34 sekjal any, the problem is that is unreachable from Google right now
20:34 slef SJeffery: me too but I'm  not doing any of the jobs needed to do it
20:34 sekjal page rank is null
20:34 slef sekjal: ok. is wizzyrea about?
20:34 sekjal or, rather, N/A
20:34 rangi hmm not a robots.txt or anything?
20:34 cait I think they can do stuff like that if you do evil seo tricks, but we didn't
20:34 slef I think it's on webmaster tools no?
20:35 slef is there a meta tag with gibberish on the page?
20:35 slef (not on my laptop yet)
20:35 SJeffery Google has been doing some pretty rough SEO updates lately, so it would not surprise me if the site was penalized in some fashion.
20:35 wizzyrea i'm here
20:35 jcamins Here she is!
20:36 mbalmer why are some many of you online and not in a pub?  that is scary...

20:38 sekjal so, like a pub.  and astronomer's pub
20:38 mbalmer given enough beer, you can see the transit of venus every day...
20:39 sekjal I'm hoping for a Groundhog's Day effect...
20:39 wizzyrea there are no messages for in webmaster tools
20:39 wizzyrea it shows green across the board
20:39 sekjal wizzyrea:  maybe Google is just hosed at the moment
20:40 wizzyrea yea, up to 5/31 it was over 3k clicks a day, average position 5.1
20:40 wizzyrea which is not great but at least on the first page
20:40 wizzyrea then it fell off
20:40 wizzyrea like a rock.
20:41 cait slef: want me to mark the presentations that didn't take place? or just delete them from program and wiki?

20:43 cait I will clean the pages a bit then
20:43 cait scary :)

20:44 sekjal updated Google algorithm on May 25
20:44 slef I want to be kibo 2.0
20:44 slef sekjal: yeah. Made a bloody mess
20:45 slef so everyone, please link in your email sigs and on social nets and so on

20:47 sekjal we may want to update our <meta name="robots" content="index,follow" />

21:00 rangi no :(
21:00 drojf oh
21:00 drojf :(
21:00 wizzyrea nm, I'm blocking that site from my results.
21:00 wizzyrea :P
21:00 rangi ill have to borrow a tshirt from eythian tomorrow i think
21:00 drojf where did they send it now?
21:00 wizzyrea oy, stinky lost bag.
21:01 drojf how is that even possible?
21:01 rangi it is somewhere in edinburgh, i think with the courier
21:01 rangi hopefully they deliver it early tomorrow
21:01 cait fingers crossed
21:01 drojf ok, thats the right city at least
21:01 cait I would offer a tshirt - but you probably prefer eythian's ;)
21:03 dunadan No, moves holds from being expired to being cancelled,
21:03 dunadan and thus moved to the old_reserves table.  Not every waiting hold has an
21:03 dunadan expiration date; it's not filled in by the holds fill process.  The patron or
21:03 dunadan librarian has to set it manually.  What's needed is an automated way of adding
21:03 dunadan these expiration dates based on the ReservesMaxPickupDelay value, so that
21:03 dunadan can capture and cancel them.
21:04 slef and I'm too short and scrawny...
21:04 slef dunadan: mentioned in release notes you say?
21:05 dunadan sorry about that, bug (7408) mentioned, yes
21:10 dunadan OK. got it now. It's a syspref called ExpireReservesMaxPickupDelay, thanks.
21:11 slef heh... glad... I need a good 30mins to understand 7408
21:11 wizzyrea bug 7408
21:11 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7408 blocker, P5 - low, ---, koha.sekjal, RESOLVED FIXED, Expire holds that have been waiting too long
21:12 slef it's a fun read
21:12 slef paul_p comments about taking 2h on one step
21:12 slef looks thorny to me
21:13 dunadan wizzy...this doesn't create a report anywhere does it. would be nice to know what holds to pull off of "waiting" shelf
21:14 dunadan I guess you have to dig it out of the sql tables, somewhere...the things that were cancelled
21:15 wizzyrea hm, my best guess as to why this happened to is because of all of the footer links in koha catalogs.
21:16 wizzyrea yea, there's a hold over tab in holds awaiting pickup
21:16 wizzyrea circulation -> holds awaiting pickup -> hold over  tab
21:17 dunadan That "holds over" thing is a nightmare
21:18 rangi wizzyrea: too many links?
21:18 wizzyrea looks that way
21:18 wizzyrea too many links with formerly-seo-friendly anchor text
21:19 rangi ah right, so we need to fix that syspref eh?
21:19 SJeffery How can you tell that is the issue vs something else?
21:21 wizzyrea well, reading. mostly.
21:21 wizzyrea about the latest google algorithm update.
21:22 wizzyrea for example
21:22 wizzyrea 1,316,137
21:22 wizzyrea they have a million links to us?
21:22 rangi ah each page will have one
21:23 wizzyrea exacterly
21:23 wizzyrea bsz has over 100k
21:23 rangi hmm this must happen with other systems too
21:23 rangi like wordpress
21:23 wizzyrea yea, there was a similar case
21:23 wizzyrea of ^^^^^^ exactly
21:24 wizzyrea a wordpress theme developer
21:24 wizzyrea put backlinks on their theme, when people installed it
21:24 wizzyrea insisted they not remove it
21:24 wizzyrea they got heavily penalized.
21:24 rangi well itself has a link
21:24 rangi a powered by wordpress one
21:25 wizzyrea right, I guess having the url "" on a link to is better than having an image or a "powered by wordpress"
21:25 wizzyrea i mean, I could be reading this wrong.
21:25 rangi Proudly powered by WordPress etc
21:25 wizzyrea[…]n-recovery-122700
21:26 wizzyrea there's the case of the wp theme dev
21:26 cait wizzyrea: oups
21:26 wizzyrea cait - is not a big deal - but the syspref probably should be changed?
21:27 rangi what does it do now, an image link, or a text link?
21:27 wizzyrea but the rest of the things they fixed for that wpmu - we don't have any of those errors.
21:27 wizzyrea good ?
21:28 wizzyrea it's text - powered by Koha
21:28 rangi right, so we thinkg the problem is just the sheer number of them?
21:29 rangi on any one site?
21:29 wizzyrea that's what I think? evidence seems to point that way.
21:29 rangi yep its def plausible
21:30 cait but I think then the google algo is broken
21:30 wizzyrea interestingly, we didn't get spanked until the 1.1 penguin update
21:30 cait like rangi said, very common for lots of pages
21:30 wizzyrea so maybe they will update it again
21:30 wizzyrea I've submitted it for reconsideration
21:31 rangi coo
21:31 libsysguy thoughts on
21:31 rangi l
21:31 wizzyrea but it's not like we can just tell people "go use duckduckgo" - google is a verb now
21:31 rangi yeah
21:31 rangi finding out why it disappeared woud be the main thing, course they wont tell us why
21:32 wizzyrea yea, and webmaster tools are *not helpful*
21:32 rangi i can understand it dropping in rank, but gone altogether
21:32 * wizzyrea goes to dig up the analytic... oh wait did we put that on piwik?
21:32 * wizzyrea checks
21:32 rangi that seems broken
21:33 slef wizzyrea: suggested using duckduckwent ;)
21:34 wizzyrea it does seem broken.
21:34 wizzyrea well it's probably pages down in the results
21:34 sophie_m joined #koha
21:34 cait libsysguy: i like the frequency idea - but think we would still need a delay? the dates are confusing to me
21:34 cait not sure how that is supposed to work
21:35 cait libsysguy: was more thinking something like.... start x days after overdue, freqzency x (every each x days) up to x occurences total
21:36 libsysguy cait yeah I need to factor that in
21:36 wizzyrea looks purty tho
21:36 libsysguy a lot of those questions are in the "add notcie button"
21:36 cait yep it does :)
21:36 libsysguy wee thats what I was going for
21:36 cait libsysguy: but why the dates?
21:36 libsysguy the dates are for when to stop and start
21:36 cait libsysguy: I mean they would change all the time?
21:36 libsysguy so if stop is null
21:36 libsysguy you send them forever
21:37 cait hm
21:37 cait I might misunderstand that
21:37 cait but a date wouldn't work I think?
21:37 libsysguy now that I think about it i mgiht too
21:37 cait if you want up to 3 letters
21:37 libsysguy well I am working on the rewrite
21:37 libsysguy so I am thinking infinate notices
21:38 cait I think having a stop and start date perhaps makes sense for when you want to factor in vacation / closed periods of time
21:38 cait but you would still need a counter fo rhow many you want to send
21:38 libsysguy so I am trying to work out the recurrence
21:38 libsysguy I thought about having a counter, it really makes more sense
21:38 libsysguy i keep thinking of this as a calendar and not sending notices
21:39 libsysguy I really like the way google calendar handles dates etc
21:39 libsysguy but i think i got stuck on that
21:39 libsysguy and missed the mark on what I was trying to do
21:39 libsysguy but for today, all I've been workin on is the look
21:39 libsysguy so hearing it is pretty makes me happy lol
21:41 libsysguy anyway im out for the evening
21:41 libsysguy cya tomorrow

21:46 * slef shuffles files around for all he's worth, trying to make sure he has enough disk if tomorrow is as annoying with cameras as today
21:47 slef I have 4 cameras with me. I used 3 :-/
21:47 slef Only reason I didn't use the 4th is I forgot I had it with me.

22:22 bencahill (or are you talking video?)
22:30 slef bencahill: video, yes
22:30 RA joined #koha
22:30 slef bencahill: I am trying to capture kohacon12... while also chairing half of it
22:30 bencahill slef: Ah, cool. Yeah, space can be an issue. :P
22:31 bencahill slef: Oh my, that's quite a challenge. The worst I've done is getting video cams set up for my brother and play a concert. ;)
22:31 slef yeah... and I remember looking at the TB disk and thinking "nah, why would I need that"
22:31 bencahill lol
22:32 jenkins_koha Yippie, build fixed!
22:32 jenkins_koha Project Koha_3.8.x build #39: FIXED in 49 min: http://jenkins.koha-community.[…]ob/Koha_3.8.x/39/
22:32 jenkins_koha Chris Cormack: Bug 5327 : Fix for XISBN test, thingisbn is now handing back different results
22:32 huginn` Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5327 major, P3, ---, sam-sanders, ASSIGNED , Unit tests required for all C4 modules
22:32 * bencahill has 2 1TB externals and a 2TB external. :)
22:32 slef so it is 400 miles south of here
22:32 slef in a crate
22:32 slef oops!
22:32 slef I think today, I had one camera crash, 2 battery deaths and 3 full memories
22:33 bencahill Ouch
22:33 bencahill slef: Wow, that's quite unfortunate. :-/
22:33 slef yeah
22:33 slef there will be a few gaps in today's presentation recordings
22:34 slef I am glad that I am paranoid on days like today
22:34 bencahill I'm still getting used to HD video, as many of our computers here can't handle it natively.
22:34 bencahill Yes.
22:34 slef oh even the HD camera here, I am running in SD because of disk space
22:34 * bencahill is extremely paranoid about data as well :P
22:34 slef tomorrow, we will have 5 cameras!
22:34 bencahill slef: Yeah, I can totally see that...and if the rest are SD anyway...
22:35 bencahill At one of my brother's recitals, I used 4 cameras (3 still cams that took video and a pocket cam)...I love different angles. :P
22:35 slef heh... one of them is not even SD... QVGA antique
22:35 bencahill hehe
22:36 slef I still carry that because I think you could set a bomb off and it would keep recording
22:36 bencahill hehe
22:36 slef but I was reminded today it does not like SDHC
22:37 bencahill Ah, that sucks...
22:37 bencahill I think the only device I use that doesn't support it is my H2
22:38 slef where do you upload videos to?
22:39 bencahill slef: Normally mine are for playing on the computer or DVD. If uploading, YouTube.
22:39 bencahill Here's a simple video I took with one camera at our last youth orchestra concert:
22:40 slef I guess I may open a google account just to upload these there :-/
22:41 bencahill slef: I like doing fun stuff like these, though: and
22:45 slef bencahill: I'm going to have to leave those last two for later because I am currently failing to test webex
22:48 slef if anyone knows if it can work/be made to work on debian... help ;)
22:48 slef I mean: help! ;)
