02:20 eythian rangi: is there no tag for v3.08.10?
02:20 rangi i may have not pushed it, i certainly tagged it
02:21 rangi my release script works with tags
02:21 eythian I can see the 3.10.03 one, so it might just not have been pushed
02:21 rangi ahh there its
02:21 rangi[…]oha.git;a=summary
02:22 rangi i had pushed it, wonder why you arent seeing it?
02:22 dcook Yeah, I see it on my end
02:22 dcook But I just fetched a few minutes ago
02:22 eythian I am doing a fetch with --tags, looks to be getting a whole lot more stuff.
02:23 rangi last push was 8 hours ago
02:23 eythian I think I remember something about that: it only gets tags that you have some local thing relating to them, or something along those lines
02:23 rangi ahh yeah thats right
02:23 rangi that's caught me before
02:23 eythian * [new tag]         v3.08.10   -> v3.08.10
02:23 eythian thar she goes
02:23 eythian hmm, oddly that came via the catalyst repo only
02:23 eythian oh well, I have it now, that's the important but
02:23 eythian bit
02:25 dcook If one of you fine folk has a moment, could you take a quick look at Bug 9703 and let me know if it sounds like a reasonable idea?
02:25 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=9703 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, dcook, Needs Signoff , Add optional parameter "as_string" to GetRecordValue subroutine
02:26 dcook I can also summarize if the bug summaries are too verbose :p
02:29 eythian just from reading the bug it doesn't seem like a bad thing. Note that an alternative would be to have a utility sub that does the conversion, but I would only do that if it gained you something else (e.g. being able to be used my other subs.)
02:31 dcook Cool. When the idea first crossed my mind, I thought about doing a utility sub, but I wasn't sure if it would be useful elsewhere, so I figured it would be best to embed it in the existing sub.
02:31 dcook Thanks for the input, eythian :). Very much appreciated.
02:32 eythian it could even be an internal utility sub, that way a) there's more modularisation, and b) it can be made public easily should that be useful.
02:35 dcook I like your points, but what do you mean by an internal utility sub? Is that in reference to C4::Koha?
02:36 eythian no, just something nearby that's not designed to be public, and the name starts with _
02:36 eythian it's just that splitting up subs is a good thing.
02:36 eythian (I haven't looked at your code btw, it might be you've done that)
02:37 eythian yeah, looking at it now, I would do that
02:37 dcook So something like |_koha_delete_biblioitems"?
02:38 dcook And just locate it at the bottom of
02:38 eythian you have if ($as_string) three times, I'd post-process it in another sub if ($as_string)
02:38 eythian I'd put it just below GetRecordValue, and call it something like _record_to_string, or similar
02:38 dcook Oooh, I like that
02:39 dcook I was a bit worried about a utility sub being lost, but if I can just put it below..
02:40 dcook Certainly seems more straight forward
02:41 dcook Sometimes I wonder how many useful subs are hidden away in the depths of Koha
02:42 eythian brazillions, I expect
02:44 wizzyrea hey you leave brazlilans out of this.
02:44 wizzyrea brazilians
02:44 wizzyrea :)
02:50 kyleh joined #koha
02:53 mtj eythian, about?
02:53 eythian mtj: yarp
02:54 mtj shall i have a go at building this round of koha deb packages?
02:55 eythian mtj: you can't at the moment, I haven't sorted out changing the signing keys.
02:55 eythian (also, I'm actually right in the middle of it :)
02:55 mtj yep, i recall that
02:56 mtj ah :)
02:56 mtj classic
02:57 mtj next time?
02:57 wahanui next time is in 87 years or something... ;-)
02:58 eythian yeah, but that'll be in 87 years or so :)
02:58 mtj i cant remember… is the 'changing the signing keys' step, tricky somehow?
02:58 eythian actually doing it is easy, but it takes time to get people to update them.
02:58 eythian Maybe I'll do that today.
02:59 eythian that way they can be ready for the next one.
02:59 mtj do i need to give you my key, too?
02:59 eythian no
02:59 eythian actually
02:59 eythian hmm
03:00 eythian you'll have to get access to to deploy them
03:00 eythian Not sure who does that, possibly galen.
03:00 mtj thought i might, for push access to the box
03:00 mtj yep, ok
03:00 eythian yeah, I don't think I can give you access to that
03:00 eythian gmcharlt: you about?
03:01 mtj ill mail him :)
03:01 mtj ok, all good
03:01 mtj hope you're feeling better, this week
03:01 eythian OK. Also, you'll want to add the catalyst repo to your git, as the packages differ very slightly from the canonical copy
03:02 eythian[…]3.10.03-packaging <-- for example
03:03 eythian this'll be a good chance to update the docs on this, too.
03:04 mtj cool, yep - i got it :)
03:05 mtj im curious to learn the process myself
03:13 wajasu left #koha
03:35 barriers joined #koha
03:41 eythian all new packages updated (3.8, 3.10, 3.11.) jcamins: I've removed the koha package from all of these.
03:42 jcamins Thanks.
03:53 dcook "When the local variables are initialized, the @array variables grab all of the elements in the @_ array, leaving none for the scalar variable. This results in the uninitialized value message displayed in the output. You can fix this by merely reversing the order of parameters. If the scalar value comes first, then the function processes the parameters without a problem."
03:53 * dcook twitches
03:54 eythian it makes sense
03:54 jcamins dcook: don't use arrays as arguments.
03:54 dcook array refs instead, right?
03:54 eythian yeah, perl lists don't nest, and arguments is a list
03:54 eythian (for power users: perl arrays only nest when using arrayrefs)
03:55 eythian and lists/arrays can be used more or less interchangeably, but there's no such thing as a listref.
03:56 dcook O_o
03:56 eythian dcook: I'd be inclined to re-evaluate what you're doing
03:56 eythian well, at least a part of it
03:56 dcook Certainly part of it
03:56 eythian there's often a more elegant way to approach things at that level.
03:57 dcook The whole array of hashes thing gets me sometimes and how to de-reference or access the data
03:57 eythian what are you trying to pass in?
03:57 dcook That array from GetRecordValue
03:57 dcook Well, array of hashes
03:58 eythian OK, and just that?
03:58 eythian strictly, it's an array of hashrefs
03:58 dcook And a string
03:58 wahanui well, a string is soft
03:58 eythian ah right. The easy way is to put the string first.
03:58 mib_ap8tl6 joined #koha
03:58 alohabot Hi mib_ap8tl6, Welcome to #koha. Feel free to use the '/nick yourname' command to choose a different name. alohabot, wahanui, and huginn are bots. If you need any help, just ask - there's usually someone around to help :)
03:58 eythian the other way is to pass the array as an arrayref
03:59 dcook Right, that took me a little while to figure out. Hence the pasted bit above
03:59 dcook Wait..
03:59 mib_ap8tl6 hi does anyone know the location of where i should place my custom images so that it would reflect in the web interface?
03:59 eythian wahanui: wait is <reply>is Godot coming?
03:59 wahanui bugger all, i dunno, eythian
03:59 dcook I was thinking of passing the array as an arrayref (not that I'm 100% on what that means), but then the whole thing seems to fall apart
03:59 eythian wahanui: wait is <reply>is Godot coming#
03:59 wahanui OK, eythian.
03:59 eythian wahanui: wait =~ s/#/?/
03:59 wahanui OK, eythian
04:00 eythian it would just be _my_sub(\@result, $the_string)
04:00 mib_ap8tl6 anyone here knows about the opac??
04:00 wizzyrea mib_ap8tl6: you would have to add them using the tool - Tools -> upload local cover image
04:00 mib_ap8tl6 thanks!
04:00 wizzyrea assuming that's what you mean by "custom images"
04:00 jcamins mib_ap8tl6: but only if you want to upload a local cover image.
04:01 jcamins And I am pretty sure that is not.
04:01 wizzyrea the first question?
04:01 wahanui "What are you trying to do?" or "What is the goal?"
04:01 jcamins ^^ exactly
04:01 mib_ap8tl6 i want to use our school's logo in part with the koha
04:01 jcamins wizzyrea will take you through the four questions that help us help you, while I go to sleep.
04:01 jcamins Good night, #koha.
04:01 * wizzyrea will go pick up her kid, actually :/
04:02 wizzyrea the short answer is
04:02 wizzyrea anywhere you can link to, you can put your image
04:02 mib_ap8tl6 my goal? i want to customize the header image
04:02 eythian dcook: then when you access it: my ($array, $string) = @_;
04:02 eythian dcook: and $array->[4]; # get the 5th value
04:03 eythian dcook: and $array->[4]{subfield}; # get the 5th value's subfield entry
04:05 dcook eythian: That requires an explicit reference to subfield though, right?
04:06 eythian I don't know what you mean there, but I suspect the answer is "no"
04:06 dcook eythian: At the moment, I'm using a for loop to get each element of the array, then I'm trying to do a foreach on the keys of the hash
04:06 dcook Well, in the case of $array->[4], you need to write 4 into your code
04:06 dcook To get that 5th value
04:06 eythian that was just an example
04:07 eythian that can be a variable
04:07 eythian or you can use a foreach
04:07 eythian foreach my $val (@$array)
04:07 dcook I figure using loops makes the sub more re-useable overall
04:07 mib_ap8tl6 solution wont work
04:07 dcook Hmm, I think I missed the @ reference!
04:07 eythian then inside that: foreach my $key (keys %$val)
04:07 dcook Or dereference..
04:07 eythian if it helps, @$foo is the same as @{ $foo }
04:08 eythian you're dereferencing it into it's "real" type
04:08 dcook Right
04:08 dcook When I was passing the array rather than the array ref, I didn't use any dereferencing (obviously)
04:09 dcook But when I changed to the reference, I forgot to dereference *facepalm*
04:09 eythian ah right :)
04:09 dcook And now the order that I pass my variables is irrelevant
04:09 eythian yep
04:10 mib_ap8tl6 i can't seem to change the appearance of the opac
04:10 dcook Sweeet
04:10 eythian most of the times I'm mixing types, I use references
04:10 mib_ap8tl6 can't locate where the image file are
04:10 dcook Mixing types?
04:10 eythian strings, arrays, hashes, etc
04:10 dcook Mmm, k. That's what I thought you were saying
04:11 dcook I had never encountered references in a programming language before Perl. It certainly has taken some getting used to
04:11 eythian really?
04:11 eythian C has them, Pascal has them, ...
04:11 dcook Well, Perl is the first "serious" language I've encountered
04:11 mib_ap8tl6 where is the right location to put the images to be used for the changing of the appearance of the opac?
04:12 dcook Maybe I shouldn't have said serious :P
04:12 eythian most high level languages do
04:12 eythian ah right
04:12 dcook Yeah?
04:12 dcook I have a humanities/social science background. I grew up playing with computer game scripts and then PHP, know. PHP.
04:12 eythian not all, but I think most imperative or OO ones do
04:12 eythian I think PHP has them too, but they're probably more stupid
04:12 dcook Never ever noticed a mention of them *shrug*
04:13 dcook I've only noticed scalars and arrays though
04:13 dcook The whole hash concept was new to me with Perl as well
04:13 eythian PHP definitely has them, and they are definitely stupid there.
04:14 eythian[…]0.0/lib/ <-- I wish we were using this
04:14 eythian It makes everything a fair bit smarter
04:15 dcook Whoa...
04:15 dcook I'm liking that at a glance
04:15 eythian turns everything into an object, etc.
04:16 dcook Yeah, I've only started getting into OOP, but I suppose I'm a bit surprised that we don't use more of it
04:16 dcook Not that I completely understand it or "us" yet :p
04:16 eythian In old perl it's ugly, in new perl, there's many competing ways to go about it.
04:18 dcook Mmm, certainly not the best environment then
04:18 eythian though, pure-perl OO isn't too bad any more.
04:18 eythian but it is hard to turn a non-OO app into an OO one
04:19 eythian lots of impedence mismatch
04:20 dcook Impedence mismatch being an impedence through having to get code in extra handling to link it up?
04:21 eythian well, in part. It's more that they result in different designs of code.
04:21 eythian you tend to think of things a bit differently
04:21 eythian and many things that we do would be quite ugly in an OO world
04:21 eythian like your thing would be totally different in OO
04:22 eythian you'd be creating a method on the record class that returned it as a string, rather than modifying the retreval sub.
04:23 dcook Mmm, I saw that somewhere in there
04:23 dcook Yeah, the Marc record class definitely has a method like that already
04:24 eythian the newer stuff will, we're slowly transitioning to that
04:24 dcook So the impedence mismatch is why you have the terms OO vs interpretive/procedural?
04:24 dcook Well, not the cause but...
04:24 eythian well, they're different designs.
04:24 dcook Yeah, that's what I was meaning
04:24 eythian so the abstractions are different.
04:25 dcook Is one better than the other, or just more useful in particular situations?
04:25 dcook useful/appropriate*
04:25 eythian Depends. OO is quite nice in many ways, in general I prefer it to procedural.
04:25 eythian Especially for larger things, it's more maintainable
04:26 eythian and generally better for writing test cases for

04:26 alohabot Hi mib_fji3js, Welcome to #koha. Feel free to use the '/nick yourname' command to choose a different name. alohabot, wahanui, and huginn are bots. If you need any help, just ask - there's usually someone around to help :)
04:26 dcook I've used it in a few instances, and am thinking about it for some other projects I have in mind
04:27 dcook I think Chris once said that Koha was written in Perl because that's what folks knew
04:27 dcook I take it that it was also written as procedural rather than OO because of old perl being ugly in regards to OOP?
04:27 eythian Most likely, yeah
04:27 eythian also, it was used much less back then
04:27 eythian (OO in perl that is)
04:27 eythian it may not have even been a thing, I'm not sure when it came about.
04:28 eythian actually, I started using it a few years later, and I think it was there then, so it probably was
04:30 dcook Hmm, interesting in any case. So you weren't one of the original developers?
04:30 dcook Despite some mild attempts to remedy it, my Koha history knowledge isn't comprehensive
04:30 eythian oh no, I started on it just 2 or so years ago.
04:30 dcook I suppose I really should read that code4lib article in its entirety..
04:30 eythian there's a fair bit of history :)
04:30 dcook Oh wow
04:30 dcook I only started about a year ago, so there you go ;)
04:31 dcook Hopefully things will become clearer in October
04:31 eythian April '10. So nearly three years
04:31 eythian though I was part time on it for the first few months.
04:31 dcook Mmm, that's how I spent the end of 2012
04:31 dcook Had to go back to Canada to finish the MLIS
04:32 dcook A bit painful wanting to work on Koha full-time but having to sit through class instead
04:32 eythian heh
04:33 dcook I've been promoting the conference quite a bit though, so maybe there will be a fair number of SLAIS folks in Reno
04:33 * dcook should remember to send some emails to the faculty admin...
04:33 dcook So you had been working in Perl before Koha?
04:34 eythian everyone wants a junket :)
04:34 eythian yeah, I used it when I was at uni
04:34 eythian for data processing and such
04:34 dcook That's how I had traditionally heard it being used as well
04:34 dcook I had no idea that it was more widespread until I encountered Koha
04:35 dcook But then I met my current partner who mentioned Paul Fenwick and how he's a mover and shaker in Perl, which expanded my concept of Perl's impact quite a bit
04:35 dcook It's just not a language that you hear a lot about though. It seems like it's mostly Ruby, Python, and PHP that are trendy
04:35 dcook With Java being...well...omnipresent
04:35 eythian oh yeah, it's all over the place
04:36 eythian it used to be known as the language that glues the internet together, that's probably still true to a degree.
04:37 dcook I remember seeing quite a few cgi-bins years ago. I assume those were all Perl scripts?
04:38 eythian could be anything. You can write cgi-bin scripts in bash, or C if you want.
04:38 eythian just something that's executable
04:38 dcook Hmm, I see
04:39 * dcook sometimes wishes that he had done comp-sci or comp-sci/english rather than just english :p
04:40 eythian heh
04:40 dcook Or that library schools did more with programming
04:40 dcook But having thought on that one for a while, I don't think it would be so easy to implement
04:41 dcook I suppose if it were, they would have done it by now
04:41 eythian I think anything that involves data should include an element of programming
04:41 dcook Mmm, makes sense
04:41 eythian you're not going to be as useful as you could be if you can collect and organise, but can't process freely.
04:42 dcook Very true. I was in a cataloguing class once where we had to design a reclassification project, and most of the ideas required time-consuming hand-to-keyboard type tasks
04:43 dcook My idea was to get the systems person/people to do a programmatic change and let the cataloguer focus on something greater than manual data manipulation :S
04:43 dcook Not to devalue the processing, but rather to take advantage of automation
04:44 eythian I used to work in a psychology department helping out with that kind of thing. The amount of times I caught people who had spent a day getting half way through a manual conversion, and I was able to do all of it for them in 30 minutes.
04:45 dcook Exactly
04:54 cjh Programming isn't yet mainstream, it's still a rather specialized task. I look forward to the day when this is no longer the case.

05:08 dcook targets*
05:09 dcook Actually, I think about that in terms of programming, open-source, and Koha in general. The more people doing it...the more we can achieve.

08:59 kf rangi: maybe ask for a test plan if it's not clear?
09:01 rangi there is a test plan
09:01 rangi its just unimarc

09:30 Herwig Hey all ... question .. is there a way to make a list of patrons + barcodes of the works they have
09:39 gaetan_B joined #koha
09:44 kf Herwig: you could do it with reports
09:44 kf maybe take a look at the reports library, if there is something like that already?
09:44 kf reports library?
09:44 wahanui reports library is found at[…]L_Reports_Library
10:06 Herwig test
10:08 Herwig gonna have a look at it did not see the patron/barcode combination but maybe i can make one myself (maybe) :)
10:13 kf we can help you a bit :)
10:13 kf I think you will need borrowers and issues tables
10:21 Herwig this one is a good start only i get an error
10:21 Herwig got him on the wicky
10:22 kf hm yes
10:22 kf that makes not so much sense
10:22 kf issues is a table - not a colum :)
10:22 kf let me try
10:23 kf what infrmation do you need?
10:24 Herwig patron name and firstname - barcodes off all the works they have
10:25 kf ok
10:26 kf maybe like that?
10:26 kf it's normally easier to start simpler and add more information as needed
10:27 Herwig sec i try
10:30 Herwig applaus for kf
10:30 Herwig kf ++++
10:30 Herwig :)

11:05 samuel hi everybody, we have a problem when we create a biblio record: the date of the creation of this record is not added. We use 099$a for this information , which is linked to biblio.datecreated.
11:06 kf hm is this a standard unimarc field?
11:12 barriers_ joined #koha
11:13 samuel my colleague want use this field but i have the same question
11:18 samuel oups, it's 099$c for the date of the creation.
11:19 samuel When I create a record, the columns biblio.datecreated and biblio.timestamp of the database are not copied in the subfield 099$c and 099$d of the MARC record
11:27 kf hm I am not sure if you can make it work this way
11:27 kf I think the fields might be handled by the database and not manually, but not sure

15:07 oleonard Anyone else not having any luck with Persona logins?
15:10 oleonard I can log in to Persona, and my email address matches, but I can't log in to the OPAC
15:10 jcamins oleonard: It works for me.
15:10 jcamins I had to allow cross-site cookies for, though.
15:10 oleonard I guess it would have had to :)
15:10 oleonard Oh I'll bet that's it
15:12 oleonard You had to explicitly allow cross-site cookies? How did you do that juts for persona?
15:13 jcamins They're generally enabled by default.
15:13 jcamins I had previously disabled them.
15:13 jcamins I whitelisted the domain.
15:14 jcamins In Chrome, under Privacy choose "Content settings..." and under "Manage exceptions" add ""
15:19 kf hmm
15:22 magnuse i see a link called "Sign in with your Email" in the opac, but it does not seem to do anything?
15:23 magnuse ah, maybe because i tried with the ccsr theme...
15:23 oleonard I wonder if it doesn't work with "localhost" addresses?
15:23 drojf joined #koha
15:24 jcamins oleonard: oh, of course not.
15:24 jcamins You'd have to have your own persona authentication server.

15:24 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=9704 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, gmcharlt, Needs Signoff , Add persona login to the CCSR theme
15:26 oleonard Okay, works if I use a domain name rather than localhost
15:27 kf oleonard: hm worked for me with localhost too
15:27 kf maybe one of the recent changes?
15:28 jcamins kf: Persona should not have let you authenticate with a localhost address.
15:28 jcamins Wait... e-mail address or URL?
15:29 kf you can#t have a localhost email address, because you have to confirm your registration I think?
15:29 jcamins kf: exactly.
15:29 kf my koha runs on localhost and I tested this successfully
15:29 jcamins That's why I said it didn't work.
15:29 jcamins Ah.
15:29 jcamins Okay, that worked for me.
15:29 * oleonard shrugs
15:30 jcamins But your opacbaseurl has to match the URL you are using to access Koha.

15:33 kf this
15:33 kf breaks sending out emails :(
15:33 kf when you have an overdue notice that has no borrowrnumber... which happens when you have a "print overdues for patrons without emails" notice
15:33 kf that you can't deactivate btw...
15:33 kf *sigh*
15:34 jcamins That patch went into Koha well over a year ago.
15:36 kf hm so it is not that maybe after all
15:37 kf *sigh*
15:37 kf maybe a side effect from some other change?
15:37 * kf goes to dig deeper
15:38 kf and sorry poor patch for blaming you
15:40 drojf look who's back
15:40 drojf with a crosspost
15:42 kf jcamins: maybe overdues wasn't using this part of the code before?
15:42 jcamins kf: it's possible.
15:42 kf I will have to check, but it's the only notice this problemwould occur with
15:49 kf jcamins: the patch went in after 3.6.3....
15:49 kf which we updated from before it broke
15:49 jcamins That could be the patch.
15:50 kf yeah, the one from marcel... but it would mean it's still broken... I have to make a test case on current master

20:13 maximep I could ask to get time to look at them
20:13 wizzyrea oh I was really only just hoping for a sign off ^.^
20:13 wizzyrea you don't have to fix it.
20:13 bgkriegel wizzyrea: why not change status to "Needs sign-off"
20:14 wizzyrea git bz told me it did
20:14 wizzyrea I guess it didn't

20:22 bag morning rangi
20:22 libsysguy hey maximep
20:22 bgkriegel ok
20:22 libsysguy sorry, just saw your question
20:22 libsysguy I would *suggest* that you just send the html
20:23 libsysguy its easiest to plug into the ide
20:23 libsysguy the FF plugin won't re-read the .pl file
20:23 libsysguy but if you want to submit the .pl file as a patch for the prove function you can put it in the selenium test folder
20:23 maximep sure, but the pl tests could be executed when jenkins run
20:23 maximep with something like ghostdriver
20:23 libsysguy true, but the pl tests can be generated when your patch gets through
20:24 libsysguy and then integrated into jenkins
20:24 maximep ok
20:24 libsysguy there are a few selenium tests in git
20:24 libsysguy but none of them are plugged into Jenkins
20:24 maximep yeah, saw the selenium dir
20:25 maximep not really sure how to organize my tests into it
20:25 maximep I guess I will create a suite for the test
20:25 libsysguy that is what I would do
20:26 maximep ok
20:26 libsysguy I have some tests that you can have that are in html form
20:26 libsysguy tests to log-in
20:26 libsysguy do some basic clicking
20:26 libsysguy etc
20:26 maximep what login do you use ?
20:26 maximep is there one by default with the test data ?
20:27 libsysguy typically I use the admin login.
20:27 libsysguy then I have a test to create a patron
20:27 libsysguy and assign them as a staff user
20:27 libsysguy then I log out and log in as that patron with the test
20:27 libsysguy it'll probably be broken soon the way oleonard has been ripping out YUI code
20:27 libsysguy oleonard the YUI-ripper
20:28 maximep the tests currently in /selenium seems to assume youre logged in
20:28 maximep probably the simplest way to do it
20:28 libsysguy I think all of those are written by biblibre
20:29 maximep well, they are in french
20:29 maximep so probably :p
20:29 libsysguy oh I was just saying that because I saw some wine stains :p
20:29 libsysguy jk paul_p
20:29 magnuse it would probably be a good thing if someone checked that they still work...
20:29 libsysguy aww he's not even here to hear my french wine joke :'(
20:29 magnuse libsysguy: apropos - are you still coming to marseille?
20:30 libsysguy I am not
20:30 magnuse aww... too bad!
20:30 maximep I like the way everyone says "apropos" in english
20:30 libsysguy I know, we had some good fun stuff to hack on
20:30 maximep i'm from quebec btw =) <insert poutine joke>
20:31 libsysguy hopefully I can still get some of it working and send it along with bag
20:31 * magnuse usually says "apropos" in norwegian
20:31 magnuse libsysguy: put it in a bag and hope customs don't find it
20:31 magnuse :-)
20:31 maximep never understood why use it instead of "about"
20:31 magnuse sorry for the pun bag...
20:31 Irma joined #koha
20:32 libsysguy its okay bag has a bag of puns
20:32 bag no worries
20:32 libsysguy :p
20:32 bag that's my bag baby
20:33 magnuse :-)
20:33 maximep when I create a ticket with my selenium test, it's ok I CC it to you libsysguy ?
20:34 maximep to validate what i did
20:34 libsysguy sure
20:34 libsysguy there is a patch to go with it?
20:34 * libsysguy is excited somebody *wants* to use selenium
20:35 maximep used it for years at my old job
20:36 libsysguy I feel like its gotten quite a bit better
20:36 libsysguy the IDE is my best friend
20:36 maximep did everything to convince the client to have time
20:36 maximep well, the IDE is less useful now with webdriver
20:36 maximep the export is really buggy
20:37 libsysguy ^^ this
20:40 maximep I became addicted to doing selenium tests
20:40 maximep but almost 2 years at this job without doing one :/
20:40 Dyrcona maximep: Withdrawal is a pain....
20:41 maximep the pain is when you find all kind of regressions
20:41 maximep that should have been tested
20:41 maximep really hurts :P

21:00 drojf no love for koha from the duckduckgo FOSS donations
21:00 wizzyrea ?
21:01 drojf they donate a part of their revenue each year to FOSS projects
21:01 wizzyrea did we ask?
21:02 wizzyrea I guess HLT could be the recipient of those funds.
21:02 drojf they choose half, and half is chosen by their community. i nominated the search rewrite
21:02 wizzyrea was there a vote?
21:03 drojf no, they just ask for suggestions and decide afterwards
21:03 wizzyrea so how does the community choose then?

21:17 drojf why would anyone want a FOSS OS that looks like XP and runs none-free windows-software? :D
21:17 wizzyrea next year we should apply again, and let everyone know so they can +1 on it
21:17 drojf the +1 does not really matter
21:18 wizzyrea no? then why did the projects that got more than a few +1's win?
21:18 wizzyrea i'm seriously asking.
21:18 drojf it's not a vote, it's just suggestions, and ddg people try to put it together in a kind of theme
21:18 drojf reactos got a lot of +1 last year ^^
21:19 wizzyrea yea, but it would probably be more of an impact if more than one person suggested it.
21:19 wizzyrea "oh one guy thinks koha is cool... whatever look at this stuff that like 10 people liked"
21:19 wizzyrea you can't tell me that doesn't sway people.
21:19 drojf don't know. we can try :)
21:20 wizzyrea reactos is a dumb idea - it's not suprising it didn't win even if lots wanted it
21:20 wizzyrea good ideas with support > bad ideas with support
21:21 libsysguy anybody know what Julian Maurice nick is
21:22 wizzyrea riseup seems like a really worthy project
21:22 drojf nobody nominated javascript blocker ^^
21:22 wizzyrea cryptocat too
21:23 eythian hi
21:23 wizzyrea but funds to TWO javascript blocking plugins seems excessive.
21:23 drojf hi eythian
21:24 drojf yeah. two javascript blockers, no library system doesn't sound right
21:24 drojf ;)

21:26 wizzyrea lovely.
21:27 drojf anyway, if all koha support providers donated 10% of their 2012 revenue the search rewrite would be paid for already :P
21:27 rangi heh
21:27 wizzyrea if every koha library donated 10% of what they saved in licensing fees it'd be paid for 10x over.
21:27 drojf true
21:28 rangi i think we'd be taking from the pot
21:28 drojf bill them for that
