15:01 pianohacker fickle
15:02 chris       heh
15:02 chris       hey liz_nekls_ :) we just finished a bugzilla session
15:02 gmcharlt    hi liz_nekls_
15:03 liz_nekls_  i figured y'all were busy. Sad I missed it.
15:03 liz_nekls_  :D
15:03 liz_nekls_  (oi, still speaking texan)
15:04 Sharon_     good morning
15:04 nengard     morning
15:05 nengard     did you two see bug 1545 :) the fixes are awesome!!!!
15:05 liz_nekls_  i know! I saw that it was done, of course we won't see it for a while on our system
15:05 liz_nekls_  but OMG so awesome
15:06 liz_nekls_  will save us so much time
15:06 liz_nekls_  SQUEEE!
15:06 chris       heh
15:06 nengard     liz_nekls_ just nag ryan and gmcharlt :) hehe maybe they can get it to you in the next batch of fixes

15:07 liz_nekls_  >.> they love it when we nag
15:09 Sharon_     have fun all...and safe journeys to anyone traveling today/tomorrow.
15:09 pianohacker Sharon_: Thanks
15:09 pianohacker gmcharlt: Do you know much about the itemcallnumber syspref? Seems like an ancestor of kohalink
15:10 liz_nekls_  i think 3102 was one that I had fixed special in our templates, so thank brendan for me
15:10 liz_nekls_  will further lead us toward the goal of (and this will make ppl here happy) no custom templates
15:11 brendan     heya liz_nekls_
15:12 liz_nekls_  oh hai!
15:15 nengard     Zotero bug I mentioned: http://bugs.koha.org/cgi-bin/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=2432 would love to see this fixed
15:27 nahuel      for me this one
15:28 nahuel      nengard, zotero doesn't work in xsl ?
15:31 nengard     nahuel - nope ...
15:32 nengard     nahuel see here: http://nce.dev.kohalibrary.com/cgi-bin/koha/opac-detail.pl?biblionumber=725 there is no zotero icon in the address bar
15:32 nengard     and I have XSL on
15:36 nahuel      ok
15:49 nengard     just submitted my second template patch :) a little nerve-racking since it's so new to me
15:54 nengard     looking at pianohacker's new way of handling system preference definitions!! Love it!!
15:55 slef        nengard: can we see it?
15:55 nengard     slef -- not sure -- i can take pictures
15:56 slef        nengard: thanks. Did I miss a post or were there no kohacon streams or recordings?
15:56 nengard     slef they did record the talks - but I don't think they're uploaded anywhere yet
15:56 chris       there were video camera's in most (if not all) sessions
15:57 chris       s/\'//;
15:57 nengard     there were some blog posts and twitter and other aggregators of the conference
15:57 nengard     i posted one
15:57 slef        I've seen some slideshares, blogs and microblogs
15:57 slef        which were pretty interesting
15:57 slef        but I've been spoiled by the debian and apache conferences I guess ;)
15:57 nengard     slef - here's my stuff: http://blogs.liblime.com/open-sesame/archives/category/kohacon
15:57 nengard     gonna upload the image now
15:58 slef        tyvm
15:59 nengard     http://www.flickr.com/photos/nengard/3455415425/  not sure if it does it justice, but it's a sneak peak
16:00 slef        ah, it gets rid of the "Edit" step?
16:00 slef        that would be good
16:00 liz_nekls_
16:00 liz_nekls_  did you see the notes at lyb
16:00 slef        is there one big "Save" button at the end?
16:00 liz_nekls_  did you see the notes at lybrarian.wordpress.com
16:00 slef        I've seen very little about this yet
16:01 liz_nekls_  lol, kiddo says hi
16:01 nengard     slef no save button - i missed how it saves
16:01 nengard     also the text is all in a file instead of the DB - so you can edit it
16:01 danny       yes, slef there is one big Save All button at the end, i saw it
16:01 nengard     thanks danny
16:01 slef        looking now... sysprefs are one of the hardest things for librarians IME, so I get a bit worried by changes to it
16:01 nengard     slef he also grouped them
16:01 liz_nekls_  ooh, pianohacker was busy
16:01 nengard     you can't see it on this page
16:01 nengard     on this image i should say
16:02 nengard     when he's done talking he might be able to tell you more :)
16:03 slef        (reading notes) RFID and EDI only in 3.4?  We've RFID running in a basic form in 3.0 and we're working on EDI although publishers are a bottleneck so probably 3.4 is about right for that.
16:04 nengard     slef which notes said that?
16:05 nengard     about RFID?
16:05 slef        http://lybrarian.wordpress.com/2009/04/17/kohacon09-and-koha-32/
16:05 gmcharlt    slef: yeah, RFID (particularly qua SIP2) is already there - look forward to your patches as well
16:06 slef        gmcharlt: when at least one of our new workers is in, I should have time to sync up to 3.0 branch and submit patches
16:06 gmcharlt    slef: cool
16:06 slef        gmcharlt: I assume we're OK using Danish model until the ISO standard settles?
16:07 slef        (I think 3M, 2CQR and TagStar all use it)
16:07 gmcharlt    slef: yes
16:07 slef        cool
16:11 paul_p      nengard: privacy works, except I've a question I want to deal with you. Let's do it after discussion about authorities
16:12 nengard     paul_p okay
16:20 nahuel      nengard, does it exists an marc21 test database that I can download ?
16:20 nengard     nahuel, i'm not sure - does anyone else know?
16:27 pianohacker Back, had to restart after demo (curse you, X11)
16:32 nahuel      pianohacker, xrandr++
16:33 pianohacker Ubuntu 8.10 has support for xrandr. Something is wonky with my setup, I believe, since I had to restart to enable multiple screens but not to disable them
16:34 pianohacker Jaunty++, really :)
16:36 nahuel      pianohacker, well I have 8.10 and no problem with xrandr
16:36 nahuel      my xorg.conf is really simple
16:36 nahuel      http://pastebin.com/f6711c2a8
16:40 nengard     okay - i'm a bit confused about branches - when can I delete branches? I've created a branch before each patch I submitted ... but now what?
16:40 pianohacker liz_nekls_: Hello again
16:40 nengard     oh - my question is about git
16:40 nengard     not library branches :)
16:40 pianohacker nengard: Probably after the patch has been accepted
16:40 liz_nekls_  hello, took a moment away for a video conference with the s
16:40 nengard     pianohacker okey dokey!
16:40 liz_nekls_  spud's grandparents
16:41 pianohacker liz_nekls_: Very nice
16:41 nahuel      nengard, you should always use the same git branch
16:41 nahuel      not a branch by patch
16:41 nahuel      and then to update
16:41 nahuel      git fetch && git rebase master
16:42 nahuel      and if some local patches as been pushed to master, they will "disapear" from local patches
16:43 pianohacker nahuel: Multiple branches are nice to make sure that you don't have interdependent patches; database updates in particular have this problem
16:44 nahuel      well, it isn't easy to manage to much branches
16:44 pianohacker It also helps anyone who follows your repo; a rebase will break git pull and require git fetch; git reset --hard origin
16:44 pianohacker Oh, most definitely
16:44 pianohacker But a few are nice
16:44 nahuel      git pull is bad for development branches
16:44 nahuel      or you should use git pull --rebase
16:44 nengard     I think I might need to talk to someone face to face about this at a later date
16:45 pianohacker well... :)
16:46 nengard     lunch time might be a good time
16:46 nengard     :)
18:00 chris       back from lunch
18:00 danny       me too
18:04 nahuel      too
18:16 pianohacker Unless anyone objects, I'm going to move some prefs around. There is no reason for RoutingSerials (which _appears_ to add more information to items created by serialsadditems) to be on the Cataloguing tab
18:20 gmcharlt    that's fine
19:43 schuster    Great blog entries about the conference...
19:47 chris       schuster: are you doing up a nice page of links? :)
19:47 nahuel      does kohanews bot can report new twitter entries ?
19:52 schuster    chris - we are working on putting a page together to link to the wiki... - nahuel - don't know...
19:54 atz         FRBR diagram from code4lib... http://www.frbr.org/files/frbr-er-diagram-5.png
19:54 chris       schuster: awesome
19:55 schuster    chris will need your help with all the presentation links/files - I would like to put them on the program page you created if possible.  Still trying to figure out where we may "post" the videos of the presentations when ready...
19:56 chris       i wonder if we could make a channel on youtube?
19:56 schuster    youtube limits to 10 minutes...
19:56 chris       ahh, hmmm
19:56 schuster    I'm going to check to see if we can use my district streaming server....
19:56 chris       sweet
19:57 schuster    If we can't we may have to check google video or if another library has a streaming server they would allow us to post them on.
19:57 chris       yeah, might have to do a call out on the list
19:57 schuster    Yep.
19:58 chris       and yep we can do links from the program, gmcharlt linked his presentation in already
20:00 schuster    So we will need to post them somewhere else and link?  or can we upload docs?
20:01 schuster    ok thanks... Nice to have you in close proximity...;)
20:09 danny       does veoh allow you to upload videos that are longer then 10 min?
20:14 danny       oh google video says no duration or size limit
20:14 schuster    Yep that was why we were looking at google video...
20:32 slef        blip.tv works well IME - checking limits now
20:34 slef        limit 1GB
20:35 slef        discriminates against the visually-impaired but looks pretty reasonable otherwise
20:44 mcpuddin    Hello, I am new to Koha and am looking into it for an application for a rural school system in Honduras, anyone there to help me answer some initial questions about it?
20:46 mcpuddin    1) Is there any information in the docs about barcodes and scanners?
20:46 mcpuddin    2) Are there any standard templates out there?  Especially ones in Spanish?
20:48 nahuel      mcpuddin, there is a full spanish(spain) translation
20:48 nahuel      mcpuddin, what do you want to know about scanners/barcodes ?
20:49 mcpuddin    where can I get those translated templates?
20:49 nahuel      did you get koha source kohe ?
20:49 nahuel      code
20:49 mcpuddin    I am currently running the debian vm image
20:50 nahuel      in the directory : misc/translator/
20:50 nahuel      you have the script which translates
20:50 nahuel      and the translation files
20:50 nahuel      which generates the templates files
20:50 nahuel      don't know the vm image
20:51 mcpuddin    it was linked on the site, http://kylehall.info/index.php/projects/koha/koha-virtual-appliance/
20:51 mcpuddin    to install templates, do I follow the instructions in here ? http://www.kohadocs.org/KOHAtranslation/translation.html
20:51 schuster    Scanners are input devices so there is no specific recommendation.
20:52 mcpuddin    gotcha, so the scanners would interface with browser itself?
20:53 schuster    Yes just like the keyboard as if you typed it.
20:53 schuster    Either through USB connection or a keyboard splitter.
20:54 mcpuddin    makes complete sense, so the scanner is then completely independent of KOHA
20:54 mcpuddin    thanks schuster =)
20:54 schuster    Yes
20:55 nahuel      for the translation i think you should follow those instructions
20:55 mcpuddin    in re: templates, my default install looks like it has no template on there, I haven't found so much documentation on templates, but do I need to download or make my own "skin"?
20:56 nahuel      mcpuddin, look at the example in misc/translator/rebuild_lang.sh
20:58 mcpuddin    haha thats where things are hiding
20:58 mcpuddin    i'll give this a whirl and see what comes of it, thanks nahuel
21:06 nahuel      ok
21:11 mcpuddin    alright, so here is where i'm at.. (i'm running KOHA 3 btw): The templates are located in koha-tmpl/[template_name]-tmpl
21:12 mcpuddin    The themes i see are intranet-tmpl and opac-tmpl (which are 2 different themes i can skin koha with), yes?
21:14 mcpuddin    (this is where I am confused), in order to switch between either of those themes i need to create a new parameter in my system_preferences called tempalte with the appropriate theme_name
21:17 mcpuddin    and once I find the them I want, I run the translation script to turn it into spanish
21:17 mcpuddin    am I headed in the right direciton?
21:43 nahuel      mcpuddin, non
21:44 nahuel      intranet-tmpl are the "intranet templates"
21:44 nahuel      and opac-tmpl the opac templates
21:44 nahuel      the themes might contain a intranet-tmpl and a opac-tmpl directory
21:44 nahuel      hhmmm
21:44 nahuel      no scuse :)
21:44 nahuel      i'm wrong
21:44 nahuel      in intranet-tmpl you have the "prog" template
21:45 nahuel      heu prog "theme"
21:46 mcpuddin    so there are 2 different types of themes then, one for the intranet (which is like admin area) and one for the opac (which is everyone elses area)
21:47 nahuel      exactly
21:47 nahuel      :)
21:48 mcpuddin    so lets say I were to download a new intranet template
21:48 mcpuddin    i would put it in the koha-tmpl/intranet-tmpl folder
21:48 nahuel      ?
21:49 nahuel      there is only one intranet template as i know
21:49 mcpuddin    are there more OPAC ones?
21:50 nahuel      no :)
21:50 nahuel      it's too complicated to maintain
21:50 nahuel      else, with xsl template it should be easier
21:51 mcpuddin    ah, so people just customize the existing tempaltes to fit their needs?
21:51 nahuel      hmm
21:51 nahuel      no
21:51 nahuel      they uses the sysprefs for headers/footer/etc..
21:51 nahuel      which includes code
21:51 caj         mcpuddin: it becomes hard to upgrade or maintain
21:52 nahuel      http://www.myacpl.org/koha/?p=160
21:52 nahuel      mcpuddin, you can take a look to this url
21:52 nahuel      owen leonard did some tutorial
21:52 mcpuddin    haha
21:52 mcpuddin    wow that'll probably answer all my questions by just reading the title of it
21:53 nahuel      :)
21:53 mcpuddin    thanks again guys for being very helpful =)
21:53 nahuel      you're welcome :)
22:31 caj         what's the best way to roll back a commit?
22:31 nahuel      git reset ?
22:31 caj         works for me thanks
