00:05 eythian dcook: on my computer? I just run the Māori layout.
00:07 dcook eythian: You don't switch it when you type Dutch?
00:07 eythian nl layout is virtually identical to the en layout. I think the only difference is € keys.
00:07 dcook Sweet
00:07 dcook Does Dutch use umlauts?
00:08 eythian hmm, mostly no.
00:08 dcook Double sweet
00:08 eythian it does use accénts
00:08 eythian but only in a few cases.
00:08 dcook What do you do in that case?
00:08 eythian compose-e-'
00:08 dcook compose?
00:08 * dcook seems to recall reading about this years ago
00:09 eythian ©°mp°ßə key is the best key
00:09 eythian
00:09 dcook That's what I'm reading now :)
00:10 eythian in my case, rīght ālt gives macrons, and right-menu is ©ompose
00:10 dcook That sounds like exactly what I need
00:13 dcook This seems way more straightforward now than it did to me back then
00:14 dcook Acute, grave, circumflex... not sure what else I need..
00:14 eythian I think most international layouts bind altgr to the most common accent for that language
00:14 dcook Cedille, I guess
00:14 dcook Yeah?
00:14 eythian don't forget the þorn letter
00:15 eythian though, it does risk confusion with p
00:15 dcook The French ones seem to use ? mark key for é
00:15 eythian yeah, they're probably expecting different keycaps in that case
00:15 dcook That would've been useful for the Old Norse lit days
00:15 eythian Icelandic still uses it, I think
00:15 dcook Yeah, I imagine
00:15 dcook ^ for both statements
00:16 dcook Icelandic is neat
00:17 eythian I don't know a whole lot about it.
00:19 eythian just that it's a pretty old form of Scandinavian languages
00:19 dcook Yep. From what I recall, it hasn't changed much in the past 1000 years
00:20 * dcook needs to meet some Icelanders to confirm this
00:20 dcook I wonder what their policy on immigration is...
00:20 eythian I wouldn't say no to a trip to Iceland
00:20 dcook Seeing that all Icelanders are immigrants originally
00:20 eythian heh
00:20 eythian to be fair, the same applies to NZ
00:20 dcook Hmm?
00:21 eythian well, it applies to most places
00:21 eythian people got there somehow.
00:21 dcook I mean that there were no indigenous people there before the other folk got there
00:21 dcook Ah yeah
00:21 dcook I'm actually pretty intrigued about that..
00:22 * dcook can't figure out how to say what he's thinking now
00:23 dcook http://www.australiangeographi[…]of-earths-oldest/
00:23 eythian there's some pretty wacky theories here, based on no evidence and belived only by crazy people, that the Celts were in NZ before the Māori.
00:23 dcook Ahh yeah
00:23 dcook I think I've heard a few of those
00:24 dcook The thing I don't understand about the Australian claim... so they might be one of the first to leave Africa... but what about the people who stayed?
00:25 dcook I suppose it's still possible that they had an older continuous culture than people in Africa, but that seems... I don't know
00:25 dcook Not my area of expertise
00:25 * dcook just finds immigration of all sorts interesting :p
00:25 dcook Also, regardless of where they come from, perogies are awesome.
00:26 eythian well, keep in mind that the Australian aborigines were isolated, maybe that comes into it. Whereas africa would have had millenia of migration, people coming back, interbreeding, conquering, etc.
00:26 dcook Exactly
00:27 dcook Complicated
00:27 wahanui i guess Complicated is far too mild a term to describe
00:27 eythian though they do say: "This new DNA study powerfully confirms that Aboriginal Australians are one of the oldest living populations in the world, certainly the oldest outside of Africa,"
00:27 dcook Hmm, I guess I should read more, eh? ;)
00:27 ibeardslee but hell no it's a lifestyle choice
00:27 * dcook shudders
00:28 eythian perogies are a lifestyle choice?
00:30 dcook Well, I can choose not to make them, but my family has made them for many generations.
00:30 dcook Lots of memories bound up in making and eating perogies.
00:31 eythian "My boss said he wanted the fire drill to be as realistic as possible, but then he yelled at me for looting. Make up your mind, bro."
00:31 dcook hehe
00:32 dcook ibeardslee: It sometimes feels like I'm living in a tv show. Can't believe the headlines are real.
00:36 ibeardslee yeap .. we are sitting on this side of the ditch, wondering which comedy show is going to fail first
00:37 dcook Which comedy show?
00:38 ibeardslee "The PM & Government Daily Show"
00:38 dcook cheers eythian also for the mention of the ComposeKey. That's going to make things way easier.
00:38 dcook Oh, I meant in terms of countries :p
00:43 mtj hi all...
00:43 wahanui yeah, yeah, hello, hello. Now fix some bugs for me, please.
00:43 mtj hey gmcharlt, about?
00:44 gmcharlt mtj: hmm?
00:44 mtj hiya
00:44 mtj ..would you be interested in adding the same github magic to the koha.git repo ?
00:45 mtj (the magic that you added to the kohadocs repo)
00:45 gmcharlt easily done
00:45 gmcharlt have you been running something to update it?
00:45 mtj yeah... i have
00:45 irma joined #koha
00:45 gmcharlt ok, go ahead and turn it off now, please
00:46 mtj your way is much better, tho :p
00:46 mtj done.. ^
00:47 mtj cheers for that, gmcharlt
00:47 eythian grumble github grumble
00:48 mtj heh, dont get me started
00:48 eythian but you're the one putting stuff there! :)
00:49 mtj im not *that* grumbly with them
00:50 mtj i just wish you could disable the 'issues' feature, on your github project
00:50 eythian send them a patch ... oh wait, you can't.
00:50 eythian that's my unhappiness with the,
00:50 eythian them
00:53 rangi that and the sexism are my issues
00:55 mtj they have recently added an 'export bug history' feature... thats handy
00:57 eythian reminds me, tt-rss is a pretty nice RSS reader with a GPLed android reader (though it has a payfor unlocker too, which is fine.) If anyone wants an account on mine, let me know, on the proviso that it's $0 so you may end up getting what you pay for :) (that said, I've been using it for a week or so now, don't expect that to change.)
00:58 ibeardslee was it easy to setup?
00:58 eythian fairly straightforward, yeah
00:59 gmcharlt ok, mirroring via post-receive hook in place
01:00 gmcharlt and boy howdy is it annoying that the git client doesn't let one explicitly specify which ssh key to use
01:00 eythian .ssh/config
01:00 eythian you can define it in there
01:00 * gmcharlt can echo eythian's endorsement of tt-ssh
01:00 gmcharlt er, tt-rss
01:34 dcook Soup time!
01:37 mtj i recetly worked out how to root my android
01:37 mtj now i can install all those apps i was curious about
01:38 eythian ibeardslee: note that it has an option to add tt-rss as a feed reader in firefox
01:38 mtj thanks for the tt-rss tip eythian
01:39 ibeardslee oh
01:39 eythian ibeardslee: it makes it very easy to subscribe to things
01:55 rangi hehe

03:00 dcook I recall cait once advising me not to customize Koha too much
03:01 dcook That advice should be added to every open source download :p
03:09 wizzyrea rather, if you find that you need it to be customised, you should contribute back your changes.
03:09 wizzyrea if appropriate to do so.
03:11 dcook That too
03:19 ibeardslee even if your changes need to be developed further to take into account how others may use that feature
03:23 dcook But that's true. I keep meaning to open more bug reports for issues that I'm not ready to upstream, but which might be worth discussion
03:23 dcook Just too many projects to juggle at once. Can't remember the last time I sent in a Koha patch now... :(
04:36 eythian[…]lk:Eythian/ES_RFC <-- my draft RFC for elasticsearch work
04:40 dcook I think the deadline was in the past?
04:40 dcook But otherwise:
04:40 dcook eythian++
04:40 eythian pfft deadline
04:40 dcook hehe
04:40 dcook Oh man, I do rain on parades..
04:40 eythian I probably wouldn't have been able to write much about it if I didn't already know what I was writing about
04:41 dcook Like many things I suppose
04:41 dcook Looks good at a glance. Excited to read it later.
04:46 eythian It's mostly a high-level look at the design, followed by details on the large chunks of what needs to be done
04:54 Terrency joined #koha
05:39 dcook Interesting... apparently when you email a basket the replyto address is set to the address of the user
05:39 dcook I suppose that might make sense if you're sending a basket to someone other than yourself

09:00 atheia
09:00 * cait needs oleonard
09:00 cait or does someone else know... i have a layout problem with german
09:00 cait and i need to move the point a table brekas into a list
09:00 * magnuse does a git pull on the ill_master branch
09:01 cait hm can i do that?
09:01 magnuse ooh, someone has been working hard... :-)
09:01 atheia ah, well, thanks :-) hopefully it all still works…
09:02 * magnuse will take a quick look
09:05 atheia (there will definitely be some conf changes you'll have to carry out in koha-conf.xml)
09:06 magnuse cool
09:09 ashimema nice to see a bit of interaction going on in the ILL space now :)
09:09 ashimema atheia++ magnuse++

09:13 magnuse atheia: i dropped and recreated the database, tried to add a user but got "DBIx::Class::ResultSet::find(): Unknown column 'me.illlimit' in 'field list' at /home/magnus/kohaclone/C4/ line 876"
09:13 magnuse then i loaded installer/data/mysql/atomicupdate/ill_schema.sql into the db and tried to add the user again
09:13 magnuse but i get the same error
09:16 magnuse ah "ALTER TABLE categories ADD illlimit VARCHAR(60) AFTER issuelimit;" has gone missing
09:17 magnuse yup that fixes it
09:17 atheia hmm, interesting… Ah, I think I might have "optimized" that column away, without updating the dbix schemas.
09:17 atheia I think that would probably cause an error like that…
09:17 atheia Ah — great minds think alike ;-)
09:18 magnuse :-)
09:18 magnuse also,[…]ll_schema.sql#L23 should probably be VALUES ('21','manage','Able to manage ILL requests');
09:19 atheia quite… I'll poke those things today.
09:20 oliver_ joined #koha
09:20 oliver_ hi
09:21 oliver_ has anyone ever come across a tool/script that facilitates MAB -> MARC catalog record conversion?
09:22 drojf hi oliver_
09:22 oliver_ unfortunately MAB is mostly used in German language context so the relevant community with experiences should be rather limited :-/
09:22 drojf i haven't. maybe cait has
09:23 cait hi :)
09:24 oliver_ hey
09:24 cait i am sorry, but I haven't seen one so far
09:25 cait have been asked about it often tho
09:25 oliver_ I mean, there must have mean various institutions that switched from MAB(2) to MARC21 but it seems no one ever published their toolchain, probably because everyone just hacked up a one-off script...
09:26 cait that would be my guess too
09:26 cait there are also some service providers that do conversions
09:27 drojf maybe ask on the inetbib maling list?
09:27 cait drojf: have you played witht he bootstrap breakpoints yet?
09:27 oliver_ granted, every conversion is somehow unique but given an input parser, a rule-based mapping/conversion engine and a MARC21 output generator it should be feasible to come up with a generic solution
09:28 cait there is a generic conversion tool for csv data i think
09:28 oliver_ any pointer?
09:28 drojf cait: i think i had a short look at it some time ago. what are you trying to do?
09:28 cait if you could get it into csv... it might help
09:28 cait drojf: will show you in a minute
09:29 cait looking for the link - does someone else remember? the tool eythian built?
09:29 drojf
09:29 oliver_ nice
09:29 cait where does it hide?
09:29 drojf[…]eric/
09:29 drojf not sure if that is the latest version
09:29 magnuse oliver_: take a look at
09:29 drojf it lives in different places
09:30 drojf oh catmandu does everything
09:30 magnuse Catmandu is a toolset desgined to do import, massaging and export of data
09:30 drojf still have not played with it
09:30 magnuse
09:31 oliver_ great!
09:31 oliver_ thanks guys, I'll have a look
09:31 cait oliver_: where ar you from? :)
09:31 drojf hannover :P
09:31 oliver_ obviously ;-)
09:31 cait heh
09:32 cait drojf: that only reveals you were curious too :)
09:32 * drojf grew up in landkreis hannover ^^
09:32 cait ok, can't compete there i see :)
09:32 drojf cait: no, it's just that it shows in my client when people join
09:32 oliver_ ah, beautiful area and worth a visit
09:32 * cait likes the zoo
09:33 oliver_ who doesn't :-)
09:34 cait especially the sloths :)
09:35 drojf lol i remember those
09:35 oliver_ guys, you've been really helpful and I'd like to say that Koha is a really nice software from what I can tell so far. I really appreciate the way the project is run, in particular from a software engineering point of view. keep up the great work!
09:36 Viktor joined #koha
09:36 magnuse oliver_: feel free to join the community any time you like ;-)
09:36 cait ... and don't miss to add your library to the wiki later :) we are always curiosu about new libraries :)
09:36 paul_p joined #koha
09:37 drojf and publish your mab to marc21 conversion tool chain :)
09:37 magnuse[…]/KohaUsers/Europe
09:37 oliver_ hehe, will do
09:37 magnuse $ catmandu convert MAB2 to MARC < records.mab
09:37 nlegrand hey #koha!
09:38 magnuse bonjour nlegrand
09:38 nlegrand god morgen magnuse!
09:38 magnuse :-)
09:39 nlegrand I wanted to try fast add cataloguing, but it doesn't appear in my circulation page (3.18/master) thought I have super librarian powers. Do I miss something?
09:40 cait hm do you have an FA framework?
09:42 nlegrand :)
09:42 nlegrand I guess this was my problem ^^, thank you cait!
09:43 magnuse yay for easy solutions :-)
09:45 nlegrand ^^
09:47 codavid left #koha
09:51 oliver_ magnuse: can't be that easy "$ catmandu convert MAB2 to MARC < records.mab"
09:51 oliver_ I mean, how's the mapping done since it's not 1:1
09:55 cait hm i think you can't directly convert... need to store it in between i think
09:56 * cait tries to remember what she has been taught at the catmandu workshop and fails
10:00 magnuse oliver_: i have no idea :-)
10:00 magnuse but you can run a series of fixes too
10:00 oliver_ ok, I'll read up on catmandu
10:01 magnuse you caould ask on the catmandu/librecat mailinglist if anyone has experiences with MAB2 -> MARC that they can share
10:01 oliver_ yep, sounds like a plan
10:01 magnuse since someone created Catmandu::Importer::MAB2 it seems kind of likely they converted it to marc at some poeint
10:01 oliver_ exactly
10:03 oliver_ and, FYI, the german national library migrated from MAB -> MARC so there's at least some reference mapping available..
10:15 andreashm joined #koha
10:15 andreashm hi #koha
10:17 drojf hi andreashm
10:17 drojf oliver_: yes there is a lot of text. but implementing that from scratch might take a while ;)
10:18 magnuse tjänare andreashm
10:20 oliver_ drojf: agreed, but it should help mapping the fields that I'm interested in. I'm not in search of a 120% solution.
10:21 drojf oliver_: what system is your data coming from?
10:24 andreashm magnuse: how's the ill work going?
10:25 cait oliver_: yes there is... but they did not migrate directly - becuase they are using a pica system with its own internal format
10:26 cait they are exporting internal format > mab internal format  > marc i think - we do the same here for our union catalog
10:26 ashimema andreashm: atheia is the man to ask ILL wise ;)
10:27 cait css--
10:27 andreashm magnuse: how's the ncip work going then? =)
10:27 ashimema it's moving forward fast..
10:27 ashimema ;)
10:27 ashimema ncip.. pass
10:27 andreashm ashimema: sounds great.
10:28 atheia ILL — indeed :-)
10:28 andreashm would there be interest in the community to build functionality for closed stacks, you guys think?
10:28 andreashm hey ahteia
10:29 atheia hi andreashm
10:29 ashimema we've had interest in closed stacks for ages..
10:30 ashimema but none willing to sponsor it ;)
10:30 ashimema it's on my 'nice to have' list for one day I have a spare moment
10:30 andreashm would it be major work, or something manageable?
10:30 ashimema does zebra facets work with query parser enabled?
10:30 andreashm there might be funds available here. =)
10:31 ashimema no idea.. it's been a long time since I looked at it i'm afraid andreashm
10:31 andreashm ashimema: alright, thanks.
10:31 ashimema sorry I couldn't be more usefull.
10:32 ashimema first thing to do would be to write up an RFC for the wiki.. so we have a spec to work from ;)
10:32 ashimema you can do that for free and it woudl certainly progress things a bit and give a better idea of how much work there is invovled ;)
10:32 andreashm yup, that's the second step. just wanted to check if someone knew, straight up. =)
10:33 ashimema :)

10:33 oliver_ drojf: LIBERO
10:33 Joubu Note that I developed a closed stack feature, see[…]paris8/ft/MT10264
10:34 Joubu BUT 1/ It's based on the 3.2 BibLibre fork (so quite old...)
10:34 Joubu and 2/ It seems quite buggy...
10:34 andreashm Joubu: yeah, Gaetan told me that there had been some work from BibLibre previously. Thanks, I'll take a look!
10:37 andreashm joubu: there was a lot of stuff in that list. any tips on where to look?
10:37 Jul joined #koha
10:39 Joubu andreashm: I think there is a sort of spec (but in French...) somewhere in our wiki (non public).
10:39 Joubu andreashm: Otherwise the first commit is 7cfac0b37
10:39 andreashm specs would be interesting!
10:39 Joubu[…]da77541ab3754be98
10:40 andreashm I can probably manage the french... with google's help. =)
10:40 cait oliver_: hm we never migrated directly from that :(
10:40 Joubu you should see the main idea in this commit
10:41 Joubu but if I remember correctly, the "main idea" was stupid... We should not have based the logic on the reserve logic
10:41 Joubu but it's far in my memory...
10:42 andreashm thanks joubu, very interesting!
10:44 oliver_ cait: why am I always the first?! ;-)
10:44 drojf avantgarde!
10:45 magnuse andreashm: i am digging around in the NCIPServer developed by rangi and others. starting to get a grip on it. i will have to add some services + create an ncip client as well. so... "just getting started" is probably an accurate status
10:45 oliver_ cait: still waiting for the source data. will reassess the situation then...

10:45 wahanui
10:46 oliver_ cait: and you always ask yourself: that problem should already be solved by now, shouldn't it...
10:46 andreashm joubu: better to make a new, seperate logic for closed stacks then? or what was the problem with basing it on reserve logic (which to me seems a pretty straight-forward way of doing it)
10:47 andreashm magnuse: thanks, interesting!
10:47 oliver_ cait: so, as usual, assess, think, plan, act
10:47 ashimema I've seen hacks based on the basket logic.. I've seen hacks based on the reserves lgic..
10:47 cait andreashm: hm maybe this would be worth writing up an RFC - i think more libraries with closed stacks than one might think
10:48 ashimema both had their own issues.. So I think we aught to do some stand alone logic specially for it..
10:48 ashimema shuold start out small, and only grow as required ;)
10:48 cait i think maybe have a reserve type
10:48 cait again
10:48 ashimema indeed
10:48 cait we used to have something like that
10:48 cait but reuse lots of the logic
10:48 cait because you still need to send emails etc. just like with holds
10:48 Joubu andreashm: it really far, I am sorry. I should have head back in the code to refresh my thought
10:49 Joubu +is
10:49 Joubu andreashm: give me your email address please (see pm)
10:51 andreashm thanks joubu!
10:55 andreashm yeah, starting out with an rfc would probably be the best way forward. get a lot of input, on how to do it.
10:55 kivilahtio khall: Having read the DBIx manual (finally) I can't but wonder why the Koha::Object is not a subclass of DBIx::ResultSet? We could directly access all the DBIx methods, like count, but now we have to create wrapper functions for the DBIx-operations. That is code duplication?
10:59 kivilahtio khall: Adding the count() to Koha::Object is not that hard :) Maybe this way everybody doesn't have to know DBIx to deal with Koha::Objects?
11:00 khall kivilahtio: subclassing resultset was an option that was proposed and passed on.
11:01 kivilahtio khall: on the hindsight I am not so sure if it is such a good idea :) What if we want to change DBIx to something else?
11:01 andreashm another thing I'd like to throw out there is to hear opinions on whether adding the possibility of having holds based on location, rather than branch or itemtype, would be a ggod idea? (yes I've talked about this before, sorry if you've heard it before)
11:01 khall that's the idea
11:02 kivilahtio andreashm: we need that as well. To allow/block holds and checkouts per location
11:02 cait andreashm: i think that woudl be a big rewrite - and then probably you'd still also need the itemtypes
11:02 khall andreashm: when you mean location, do you mean shelving location?
11:02 kivilahtio cait: big rewrite? just add the location column to the ?
11:02 ashimema andreashm, that's another one I'd love to see..
11:02 ashimema one of my collegues was going to open a bug on it
11:02 cait i think either or.. probably won't work - there is also the problem of the itemtype being on record and item level (intheory) and location only item level
11:02 kivilahtio and then tweak the 3-4 places in code where that value is accessed
11:02 khall I see no reason why we couldn't add shelving location as an option parameter to the circulation rules
11:02 cait kivilahtio: i think the gui is not the problem :)
11:03 kivilahtio there is a bug from Joubu and me where a similar issue is already dealt with
11:03 andreashm ashimema: oh, really? sounds interesting!
11:03 andreashm khall: yes, shelving location.
11:03 wahanui it has been said that shelving location is now in italic underneath the library name.
11:03 kivilahtio it had to do with defining the hold waiting for pickup duration in
11:03 cait kivilahtio: anything is possible, but i think it's nothing you can do quick and dirty :)
11:03 cait holds are... beasts
11:04 andreashm cait: yes, it would have to be another parameter. that could work together with itemtype for instance
11:04 kivilahtio cait: tell me about it, I need to soon write a parallel holds feature

11:05 andreashm kivilahtio: your going to do that?
11:05 kivilahtio andreashm: it is part of the serials improvement I am abou to do based on the new REST API this summer

11:08 cait khall: i like to see it on a separte bug, but maybe we can use what we learned from 9303
11:09 cait and kivilahtio's patch is a duplicate actually - 13743 and 13790
11:09 cait it got a bit messy, would be happy if we could resolve tha

11:12 kivilahtio khall: I'' let you deal with it :)
11:12 khall sounds like a plan!
11:13 andreashm kivilahtio: isn't bug 8367 about holds waiting for pick-up, not on how holds are handled? to you mean something can be based on that patch? Otherwise I don't see how it will fit.

13:16 gaetan_B cait: i have more questions regarding having the biblionumber in 001
13:16 nengard joined #koha
13:17 gaetan_B if your library wants to be able to export its records, and have its own identifier there, you don't have the choice then i guess ?
13:18 misilot joined #koha
13:21 drojf gaetan_B:  the biblionumber is the identifier in the system. i would not regard it as an identifier by the library. they do not assign it, the system does. so i wonder what you would want to do with it on export level. you can't just reuse it when you import somewhere else because it may already be used there. they should assign their own (really unique across systems) identifier if they need one
13:22 gaetan_B drojf: are there really libraries manually assigning this number ?
13:22 gaetan_B in unimarc we have the biblionumber in 001, so i haven't had to deal with this case so much
13:23 drojf in germany, union catalogues use it. you got a number of the union catalogue there and your own library code in 003 and the combination of 003 and 001 is what makes it unique
13:24 misilot is there a list of the variables available for notices in the manual somewhere? I looked buy cannot find them.
13:24 drojf i think in the library i worked at, we just made them up. we were not part of a union catalogue and a special library, but needed it for 773
13:25 drojf but this way, exporting data and importing it somewhere else, linking with 773 and 001 would still have worked. with biblionumber, not necessarily
13:25 gaetan_B i feel like this way of using the 001 might be specific to the german union catalogues, cait was mentioning this too
13:26 drojf possibly, i don't know how others use it. maybe magnuse of Viktor could tell us how it is used in scandinavia
13:26 drojf (or if at all)
13:26 drojf s/of/or
13:27 cma joined #koha
13:27 JesseM joined #koha
13:28 Viktor I think we have the same use of 001 and 003 as drojf gives as example in most cases.
13:28 Viktor We stick the internal id of the Libris och Burk databases in 001 and if I'm not way off we have the librarys id in 003
13:28 Dyrcona joined #koha
13:30 gaetan_B so you could find yourself with two identical 001 fields in your catalogue, provided the records come from two different sources?
13:33 drojf i think that's possible, as koha does not care about the combination of 003+001 as it probably should. there is also the option to have your local number in 001 and put the 001 from the union catalogue (or somewhere else) into an alternative field (like 035)
13:34 gaetan_B that's probably what i'll end up doing
13:35 gaetan_B for the record, the french unimarc academic union catalog (sudoc), does provide its unique identifier in the 001 field, but we move it to a custom field on import to have the koha biblionumber in 001
13:35 gaetan_B i don't know how other ils do it, there is no specification for this actually
13:36 drojf ok that would be a similar workflow then
13:38 cait gaetan_B: i think the important bit is to prevent double ups
13:38 cait because koha won't deal well with that
13:38 cait if you change the index
13:38 cait if you use 035 it should be (MARCOrgCode)Number
13:39 cait 001 is only unique per definition in combination with 003
13:39 cait i think i wouldn't change it out of fear for side effects - and gladly our libraries haven't asked for something like that
13:40 gaetan_B it seems i will have to do it as they really want to have it this way for some reason
13:40 cait I think we'd see it as too expensive
13:40 cait unless we'd change it for all our libraries
13:41 drojf they want the index changed? i thought you'd just use the regular and copy the biblio number to 01
13:41 drojf 001
13:42 gaetan_B threre is already an index on 001 : control-number
13:42 cait as i understood he wants to change where koha stores the biblionumber... not copy it
13:43 cait gaetan_B: do you want to move or copy it?
13:43 gaetan_B at first i wanted to copy it, but we would have doubles which might be really problematic
13:43 gaetan_B so maybe i'll move it
13:43 cait hm no
13:44 cait doubles between 999 and 001 would be less problematic i think
13:44 cait just not ure how you would do that - have both
13:44 gaetan_B i could map biblio.biblionumber to 999c and biblioitems.biblioitemnumber to 001
13:45 gaetan_B i *guess* it should work
13:45 drojf i don't see problems with a copy. but i would not mess with koha internally where to look for the biblionumber and just leave it in 999x or what it is

14:01 Joubu At the moment, we can use it as it, but it would be nice to refactor the code a bit (to move it into Koha::Borrowers)
14:02 khall agreed, I see no reason to not move forward with your work. My issues can be dealt with later
14:07 Joubu khall: actually if you absolutely need this behavior, the best would be a pref to set "contains" or "start_with" as a default

19:04 cait i talked to Joubu
19:04 rangi else anyone who has already upgraded
19:04 rangi wont get the column size change
19:05 cait what we can do is push the patch to change the column change now after
19:05 cait and then change the authorised value category to the right value
19:05 cait that will put us in the state it should have been after the update
19:08 rangi can you try branch 3.18.5 now

19:09 cait but give me a few more mins?

19:09 cait just need to run the update now and cancel a few things
19:10 rangi the brnach should fix everything
19:10 rangi its not worth testing that patch by itself
19:10 rangi it cant work
19:10 cait i won't
19:10 rangi because the column width is still wrong
19:10 cait just creating data
19:10 cait then updateing
19:10 rangi cool
19:10 cait creating the data on a 3.18.4
19:11 cait then updating to the new updated branch should put the data in the right state... hopefully
19:11 cait oh the old databaesis
19:11 cait that will take a moment
19:11 rangi im not sure you have to have any data
19:12 rangi the upgrade to 3.18.5 adds the data
19:12 rangi it populates the authorised values
19:12 cait looks like we miss a line break :) Upgrade to done (Bug 5511 - SessionRestrictionByIP)Upgrade to done (3.18.4 release)
19:12 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5511 normal, P5 - low, ---, amitddng135, Pushed to Stable , Check for Change in Remote IP address for Session Security. Disable when remote ip address changes frequently.
19:12 cait it adds sample data
19:12 cait but it also converts stuff you entered before
19:12 cait into authorised values
19:12 rangi what if you entered something longer than 32 chars before
19:12 rangi that will still break
19:12 cait it numbers
19:13 cait the code is a number, the description is your text
19:13 cait that's why i am cancelling things before runnign the update
19:14 rangi k

20:50 KotH good evening!
20:51 nengard hello
20:51 wahanui niihau, nengard
20:51 andreashm hey
20:51 cait hi andreashm
20:52 andreashm hi cait
20:52 andreashm saw some info in the log about some issue with updating to 3.18.5. What was that? (Of course, we updated to that today)
20:54 cait we will fix it
20:54 cait we missed a dependency on a database update
20:55 cait the problem is when cancelling an order and entering the reason - fixes are under way
20:55 wizzyrea hi
20:55 andreashm cait: ok. noothing worrying for us then as we don't use that. good. =)
20:55 cait yep, should be ok :)
20:56 andreashm upgrading helped us figure out what was wrong with our holds though, so that was good.
20:56 cait ah cool
20:56 cait what was it?
20:56 andreashm bug 7817
20:56 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7817 critical, P1 - high, ---, olli-antti.kivilahti, Pushed to Master , Items Permanent location (shelving location) is set to NULL when item is edited
20:57 andreashm item perm location was mapped to 952 k
20:57 andreashm I took it away.... now it works.
20:57 cait ooh
20:57 cait hard one to figure that out
20:57 andreashm now we just need to figure out why we did that in the first place (I have no idea)
20:57 cait maybe you thought something was missing :)
20:57 wizzyrea ^
20:57 cait it's a weird one that column
20:58 cait not quite behaving like the rest
20:58 KotH can someone give me a hand, i'm trying to figure out where the pid file for koha is generated, but cannot find it. the reason why i'm looking for it is, because it ended up in /tmp/ instead of in /var/run/koha
20:58 andreashm why is it even possible to mapp it to marc, one wonders? =)
20:59 andreashm hi wizzyrea
20:59 wizzyrea KotH: how did you install koha
20:59 KotH wizzyrea: debian package
20:59 KotH deb squeeze main
20:59 KotH dpkg -s koha-common|grep Version
20:59 KotH Version: 3.18.05
21:00 wizzyrea what's the problem you are experiencing?
21:00 wizzyrea besides "the pid file ended up in /tmp
21:00 andreashm cait: hopefully, there was no need for that mapping... and that we just did it because we though it was needed.
21:00 KotH none :)
21:00 wizzyrea heh
21:00 KotH but i have a script that cleans up /tmp once a week. so the pid file should not be there
21:00 wizzyrea coolio
21:00 KotH what i dont get is, that the init script looks ok
21:01 cait andreashm: it should work without the mapping - but the feature is optional anyway
21:02 andreashm cait: I hope your right. We'll see if anything else breaks. =) But I'm happy to have figured it out after tinkering with it for a week.
21:02 cait i totally understand that :)
21:03 cait hm wizzyreacould you take a look at bug 13822?
21:03 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=13822 minor, P5 - low, ---, kyle, In Discussion , Patron autocomplete search is severly limited
21:03 cait i am looking for opinions here
21:03 cait there
21:05 * magnuse waves
21:05 andreashm We had noticed that the biblio-number got doubled earlier today, so we were on the right track. But updating and getting that notice probably saved me a couple of hours of work.
21:05 andreashm hi magnuse
21:06 wizzyrea hi magnuse >.>
21:07 wizzyrea What you really want there, cait
21:07 wizzyrea is a pop out "search help" that's just, not a modal window but a callout
21:07 wizzyrea or something
21:07 wahanui i guess something is sketchy
21:07 andreashm cait: interesting. I was wondering a couple of days ago why autocomplete for patrons gave totally different result than a regular patron search. now I know. =)
21:07 cait wizzyrea: the autocomplete starts reacting on 3 letters - i was wondeirng if it doing a contains search might be helpful or the opposite
21:08 cait the patch makes it act like the normal search, but i wondered how that will affect the list of names it suggests
21:08 eythian hi
21:08 cait morning eythian
21:08 cait andreashm: feel free to add your opinion too :)
21:09 wizzyrea hm.
21:10 wizzyrea well it obviously will change the list of names compared to what it finds now. I'm trying to think of how other autocomplete type things I've used work
21:10 wizzyrea example, in the movie library software we use, 3 letters starts getting results, in a contains sort of fashion
21:10 wizzyrea 4 letters limits more, 5 more yet, and so on
21:11 KotH where do i send my patch?
21:11 wizzyrea have you created a bug for your issue?
21:11 wizzyrea at
21:11 KotH oki
21:11 wizzyrea start there. :)
21:11 KotH thanks
21:11 wizzyrea using git?
21:11 wahanui well, using git is targeted for people developing, is pretty much similar to using tarball
21:11 wizzyrea git?
21:11 wahanui well, git is mostly needed when you want to do development, there are packages for debian that can make my life eaiser installing it
21:12 wizzyrea version control using git?
21:12 wahanui version control using git is at[…]Control_Using_Git
21:12 wizzyrea ^ have a look at that
21:12 wizzyrea specifically the "do some work" section
21:14 cait ugh rangi on twitter :(
21:15 wizzyrea yeah :(
21:15 andreashm ouch
21:16 KotH .o0(cloning koha takes a loooot of time)
21:16 andreashm humm....
21:17 andreashm I wondered what happened to all our patrons. doing a patron search gives no hits. the table is empty.
21:18 andreashm but they are there. using check out (I was attempting to check the autocomplete function) it's no problem.
21:18 wizzyrea KotH: lots of history.
21:18 andreashm weird. upgrade issue, or something we broke ourselves?
21:18 wizzyrea andreashm: does your firefox console tell you anything?
21:18 KotH wizzyrea: definitly... i havent waited this long since i checked out the linux kernel :)
21:18 wizzyrea heh
21:19 wizzyrea you can do a shallow fetch, sometimes that helps. I can't remember the syntax for it off the top of my head though.
21:19 wizzyrea always have to look it up.
21:20 KotH i'm already at 62%.. i can wait those minutes
21:20 andreashm wizzyrea: in firefox it works. in chrome, not so much.
21:20 cait andreashm: hm maybe check if one of the filters got stuck? might be set to a patron category you don#t have or similar
21:21 wizzyrea andreashm: clear the cache
21:21 wizzyrea if you just upgraded.
21:21 wizzyrea it might be you have old JS
21:22 andreashm ok, testing that
21:22 NateC joined #koha
21:24 wizzyrea you usually use chrome and not firefox?
21:26 andreashm thanks wizzyrea! clearing the cache worked.
21:26 wizzyrea woohoo!
21:26 andreashm yup, I usually use chrome
21:27 wizzyrea oh yeah, always a good idea to clear the cache after an upgrade.
21:27 wizzyrea always always.

21:51 KotH 1.5G... that's some repo!
21:52 KotH ok.. bug submitted, have fun patching ;)
21:55 nengard left #koha
21:55 tcohen joined #koha
21:56 cait KotH: looks like you already got the solution - would you like to submit the patch yourself?
21:56 KotH cait: submit?
21:56 KotH cait: i just entered it into bugzilla
21:56 KotH any other place i should put it?
21:56 cait yep - but not with a patch file with your name in it :)
21:57 cait i got you already have the repository?
21:57 KotH yes
21:57 cait did you commit your change?
21:57 KotH do i have commit rights?
21:57 cait on your local repo you can do whatever you want :)
21:57 KotH ah.. i get what you mean
21:57 KotH sorry
21:57 cait our process is that we attach a patch file to the bug report
21:57 KotH been a long day.. with too much math
21:58 cait and then the bug status would be set to 'needs signoff' so the testers can go and test it
21:58 cait so you'd push it one step further
21:59 JoshB joined #koha
22:00 cait a patch should include the bug number in the subject line - and a short description, you basically already have those things on the bug
22:01 cait patch files can be created with git format-patch HEAD^ or similar - there is also git bz - but bit more work to set up
22:03 KotH cait: done
22:03 cait cool, looking good :)
22:04 KotH still takes me a while to wrangle with git.. i'm still not used to it ^^'
22:04 cait you were quick :)
22:04 KotH it's not my first patch ;)
22:04 cait aaah
22:04 cait that would explain that heh
22:05 cait :)
22:05 KotH my first patches were done using cvs :)
22:05 KotH i'm glad those days are over ^^'
22:05 cait i missed out on the cvs days - so only know git :)
22:06 KotH dont worry, you didnt miss much
22:06 KotH cvs was a pain.. lots of ways to screw up royaly...and f** up the repo
22:06 KotH subversion was god send back in those days
22:07 KotH and having used cvs/svn for so long... git still takes a lot to get used to
22:07 cait yeah that doesn't sound very inviting
22:08 KotH now think about a project, that was a fraction of the size of koha in number of loc, 20-30 active developers, and a couple of dozen commits a day...
22:08 KotH i dont remember how many times i had to fix the repo, because cvs messed up the locking
22:11 KotH anyways.. time to sleep
22:11 KotH good night everyone
22:11 KotH pfuuset guet! :)
22:11 wizzyrea hehe, there are myriad ways of screwing a git repo. I know, I've done them all.
22:12 cait night all!
22:12 wahanui goodnight cait. You'll be back.
