00:06 mtj            so, 'signed-off'   ==  'passed-qa' , in BZ?
00:07 rangi          hmm signed-off = signed-off
00:07 rangi          if you mean the status in bugzilla
00:08 rangi          if you just qaed them though, and add a git sign off, and the status was signed-off before, you can switch it to passed-qa now
00:08 rangi          was that what you meant?
00:09 mtj            hmm, i cant find the 'pased-qa' status ?
00:10 rangi          whast the current status?
00:10 mtj            i can see the 'failed qa' option
00:10 mtj            current status is 'needs signoff'
00:10 mtj            tho, that status is poss. incorrect
00:11 rangi          had the patches all been signed off before you signed off on them?
00:11 mtj            yes
00:11 mtj            by jcamins
00:11 rangi          you'll have to go signed off, then passed qa
00:11 rangi          should be fine
00:12 mtj            gotcha
00:19 mtj            fyi: i have a little QA script that runs a perlcritic test, on the last commit
00:19 mtj            http://git.kohaaloha.com/?p=koha-qa-tools/.git;a=blob;f=git-perlcritic.pl
00:20 rangi          cool
00:20 mtj            so for the quotes stuff -  i squashed the 18 commits into 1, then ran the script
00:20 mtj            .. it passed OK, etc
00:20 rangi          i run t/00-testcritic.t
00:21 rangi          its a pre-commit hook
00:21 rangi          wont let me commit if it fails
00:21 rangi          ahh the 00 ones are good to run
00:21 rangi          ahh=all
00:21 rangi          as a bare minimum
00:25 mtj            oooh, thats new to me :)
00:26 rangi          plus the xt/ ones
00:26 rangi          xt/tt_valid.t
00:26 rangi          xt/permissions.t
00:26 rangi          as well as
00:26 rangi          xt/author/translatable-templates.t
00:27 mtj            i guess my method is the quick/dirty way  (its only testing the files that were modded by he commit)
00:27 rangi          yep, but theres a bunch of other tests we should be doing too :)
00:28 rangi          so we dont create translation problems etc
00:28 rangi          jenkins will catch them .. but by then .. that means at least 3 people havent run them before that point
00:28 mtj            t/00-testcritic.t seems to skip the C4  dir?
00:28 rangi          which is a fail
00:28 rangi          yeah that dir needs to be cleaned up, everything in there is a fail
00:29 rangi          well a lot of it, then the test switched on for there
00:29 mtj            ah yep 'At present only the directories in @dirs will pass the tests in 'Gentle' mode '
00:29 rangi          its unfair to fail a patch for existing errors imho
00:29 rangi          there is a standing bug for fixing errors
00:30 rangi          when i get time i work on it
00:30 rangi          as well as bug 4330

01:27 rangi          heh
01:34 chris_n        mtj: thanks :)
02:19 rangi          hmm i will be on an airplane then
02:19 chris_n        use a satellite connection then ;-)
02:19 rangi          heh
02:20 chris_n        airlines should offer broadband in-flight
02:20 eythian        some of our ones do
02:20 eythian        but it's terribly expensive
02:20 rangi          yep
02:20 rangi          insanely so
02:22 rangi          we need gogo
02:22 rangi          $11 us for a 24 hour pass
02:22 rangi          virgin america does it
02:23 rangi          http://www.gogoair.com/
02:24 eythian        I'm surprised someone like Singapore Air hasn't got onto a scheme like that yet.
02:25 rangi          yeah
02:25 eythian        ahh
02:25 eythian        it will work for US domestic only
02:25 rangi          *nod*
02:25 eythian        it relays through ground stations
02:25 rangi          they plan to expand apparently its being trialled in oz too
02:25 eythian        satellite (what airnz uses) is a lot more expensive
02:25 rangi          yep
02:25 eythian        cool
02:26 rangi          i see lots of press from 2010 about singapore to offer wifi
02:26 rangi          but nothing saying they ever did
02:27 rangi          http://www.choosynomad.com/2010/10/singapore-airlines-announces-wifi-on-long-haul-flights-sqairlines/
02:28 eythian        It's the same tech as airnz, so will probably be expensive too
02:29 eythian        via Inmarsat, so low bandwidth
02:29 rangi          yuck
02:30 eythian        was supposed to start in May last year, but I see nothing that says that it did either.
02:30 rangi          chris_n: did you get the link to the db dump?
02:31 chris_n        no, but it is probably on my computer at work
02:31 * chris_n      is home atm
02:31 rangi          ahh you need it at work or at home? :)
02:31 chris_n        work is fine
02:32 rangi          sweet
02:32 rangi          ping me again tomorrow if its not there :)
02:32 chris_n        the bandwidth here is *very* narrow :-)
02:32 chris_n        will do

05:11 francharb      well
05:11 francharb      I did get some
05:12 francharb      but it wasn't good sleep...
05:12 francharb      hehe
05:12 francharb      I was obsessed by the migration I'm working on...
05:12 francharb      :)
05:13 francharb      and the project itself is getting messy...
05:13 francharb      I need to fix that!
05:13 rangi          Hate when that happens
05:14 francharb      me too
05:15 francharb      but in a week and a half, it's Kohacon! so I will work the more I can to get everything on track before!

07:49 rangi          heh
07:50 Topdog         pls how do i backup and restore koha database..
07:50 magnuse        Topdog: have you seen http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Backing_up_Koha ?
07:50 magnuse        Topdog: the answer also depends on how you installed - did you use the debian packages?
07:53 clrh           bugzilla is down?
07:53 Joubu          It's not just you!  http://bugs.koha-community.org looks down from here.

07:56 rangi          looks to be back now
07:56 Oak            next time magnuse. you'll see!

07:56 cjh            rangi: yeap
07:57 cjh            yeap = its back up.
07:57 magnuse        yup
07:58 rangi          i suspect something was hogging all the connections
07:59 Topdog         pls where do i run d script "mysqldump -u kohaadmin -p koha > mydatadump.sql" 2 backup my koha database..

08:01 cjh            Topdog: that is a command you run from the machine where you have mysql installed
08:01 magnuse        koha + catalyst - does that make sense? https://github.com/libsysguy/koha-catalyst
08:02 * magnuse      knows nothing about catalyst...
08:04 rangi          its a framework, uses TT, its certainly worth playing with, and you could replace modules at a time, it would help enforce MVC
08:04 magnuse        intriguing...
08:05 magnuse        and it would play well with plack or similar?
08:06 rangi          yep
08:06 rangi          wouldnt play well without some kind of persistance
08:07 magnuse        cool :-)
08:08 magnuse        oops, bbl
08:14 Oak            guys, have a look at this please: http://library.aeu.edu.my/ and I am wondering how did the make those links like "Find Databases" at bottom, content area, or on right vertical column, "Our Services"... I mean they got Koha working like a content management system right?
08:16 Oak            did they manually create pages like "services.pl" like here: http://library.aeu.edu.my/cgi-bin/koha/aeu/services.pl ?
08:16 rangi          yep
08:16 rangi          making the links is fine, thats all in sysprefs and css
08:16 rangi          but the actual pages, they made those themselves
08:17 Oak            and their extension is .pl
08:17 jenkins_koha   Starting build #22 for job Koha_3.8.x (previous build: SUCCESS)
08:17 Oak            what are they? HTML pages? or
08:17 rangi          cant possibly tell
08:17 Oak            pages using Koha OPAC's template
08:17 Oak            hmm
08:17 Oak            it's very nice though.
08:18 Oak            and this one: http://library.hauraki-dc.govt.nz/ very nice also
08:18 rangi          thats all css and sysprefs
08:18 rangi          no koha template changes at all
08:18 rangi          plus a few static html pages
08:18 Oak            well, and the link here like http://library.hauraki-dc.govt.nz/services/electronic.htm is a static page?
08:19 rangi          yes but thats nothing to do with koha
08:19 rangi          just a static page
08:19 rangi          that they can edit and sftp
08:19 * Oak          wondering how to show Koha's search bar on top of a static page
08:19 rangi          cut and paste the html
08:20 rangi          from a rendered page
08:20 Oak            aah
08:20 rangi          its just html by the time it hits your browser
08:20 rangi          easy peasy :)
08:20 Oak            coool
08:20 Oak            :)
08:23 Oak            i wish i can make my OPAC cool like these two...
08:23 Oak            i'll work on that now.

11:24 vfernandes     hi guys... theres is a easy way to pass on borrowers from the deletedborrowers table to the borrower table?
11:34 vfernandes     i need to recover one deleted borrower...
11:36 vfernandes     done... directly on the database :)
11:47 Amit_Gupta     heya druthb
11:47 druthb         Hi, Amit_Gupta. :)
11:49 magnuse        o/
11:50 vfernandes     anyone here had done migration from Millenium to Koha?
11:50 druthb         several times, yes.
11:51 vfernandes     mysql or oracle?
11:52 druthb         The way we did it, it doesn't matter which backend they're using; we do it all with reports.
11:52 vfernandes     humm ok... MARC21 or UNIMARC?
11:53 druthb         MARC21, in our cases.
11:53 vfernandes     this week i'm starting a migration to Koha from Millenium and i doing the "state of art"
11:54 vfernandes     found some information incluing this presentation: http://www.slideshare.net/sekjal/becoming-truly-innovative
11:54 jcamins_away   julian_m++
11:55 vfernandes     there is also a script that creates a MARCXML with the all the records: http://contribs.koha.org/revision_view.php?rid=19
11:55 julian_m       jcamins_away, ?
11:55 druthb         There are simpler ways than that; Ian had some pretty rough limitations on what he could do on that system.
11:55 jcamins_away   julian_m: bug 5888
11:55 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5888 enhancement, PATCH-Sent (DO NOT USE), ---, julian.maurice, Needs Signoff , opac-detail subject/author links improvements
11:56 vfernandes     druthb can I do the export on the command line?
11:56 jcamins        I was just asking about that patch yesterday or the day before, and today you rebased it against latest master!
11:56 * magnuse      waves at jcamins
11:56 * jcamins      waves back
11:56 druthb         I think there is a marc export from the command line, yes, and that's the piece that required Ian do all that extra work.
11:57 julian_m       jcamins, I hope the patch is ok this time :)
11:57 vfernandes     i only have access to the server by SSH and the server with Millenium is still running so I have to be very carefully
11:58 jcamins        julian_m: me too! I will test when I can.
11:58 jcamins        Right now I have some RMainting to do.
11:58 jcamins        3.6.5 is due out tomorrow.
11:58 druthb         Everything else you need--item data, borrowers, current checkouts, etc--can be had via reports.  We have our partner libraries run reports, and send them to us tab-delimited.
12:00 vfernandes     only biblio, items, serials and borrowers will be migrated... the current checkouts would be nice to migrate but the client didn't paid for that :D
12:00 vfernandes     the reports can be done by command line or only in the interfaces?
12:00 druthb         serials is the hard part.  I've never done them, so I don't know--probably in the interface.
12:02 jcamins        Sorry for the e-mail volume.
12:02 vfernandes     humm ok druthb.. thanks for the help :) i'm still studying the problem and the best way to migrate the data
12:03 druthb         :)  glad to help.
12:09 jcamins        hdl: good afternoon.
12:10 jcamins        hdl: francharb mentioned that you have an authority deduplicator. Is the code for that available anywhere?
12:12 kyleh          jcamines: can you take a look at my newest comment on bug 7804?
12:12 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=7804 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, kyle.m.hall, In Discussion , Add Koha Plugin System
12:12 jcamins        kyleh: sure thing.
12:14 kyleh          jcamins: thanks!
12:24 chris_n        g'morning
12:25 oleonard       Hi
12:25 wahanui        niihau, oleonard
12:25 Amit_Gupta     heya chris_n
12:28 chris_n        Search.pm must be a special sort of curse
12:28 * chris_n      has found a non-trivial bug in bugzilla's Search.pm :-P
12:29 jcamins        chris_n: sounds about right.
12:30 chris_n        I used to think it was just the name of a perl module...
12:30 chris_n        but that could not be further from the truth ;-)
12:31 oleonard       jcamins++ # for bug-wrangling
12:31 chris_n        mtj++ # for signing off on QA work
12:33 jcamins        Anything that was pushed prior to the release of 3.6 is getting closed.
12:33 * chris_n      gets spammed by bz
12:33 jcamins        chris_n: I apologized!
12:33 chris_n        jcamins++ # for doing a good job
12:33 jcamins        Only another 135 to go.
12:33 chris_n        hehe
12:33 oleonard       It's not spam, it's delicious bugzilla goodness :P
12:34 chris_n        lol
12:38 jcamins        If others wanted to close old bugs, that would be a Good Thing.
12:40 oleonard       sorry, I only open bugs.
12:40 * oleonard     kicks over the trash can for emphasis
12:42 chris_n        jcamins: there are pre-canned reports which will return bugs addressed in most of my releases if you are interested
12:43 * chris_n      used to keep up with that sort of thing before the schedule went south
12:43 jcamins        At this point I think I'll just keep going on my march.
12:44 chris_n        probably the release note building script could be mod'ed to update the status of the bugs it touches
12:45 jcamins        No need for File::Find.
12:45 jcamins        Plugins can only be stored in a plugin place.
12:46 * jcamins      likes alliteration.
12:50 chris_n        jcamins: from his example it appeared that the plugin author would have some liberty regarding the subdir structure
12:50 chris_n        ie. Koha::Plugins::Org::CCFLS::PatronsList::Step1
12:50 chris_n        so everything beyond "Org" might vary in name and depth
12:51 chris_n        but I'm probably missing some fundamental point :-)
12:51 jcamins        chris_n: yes, but the only directory in @INC is the parent directory.
12:51 jcamins        The file will be in $plugins/Koha/Plugins/Org/CCFLS/PatronsList/Step1.pm
12:51 chris_n        ahh... right
12:52 chris_n        so why even mess with $plugins? why not dictate it from the start?
12:52 jcamins        It's a configuration setting.
12:52 * chris_n      is totally distracted
12:52 * jcamins      too.
12:53 chris_n        what did you say perl was again?
12:53 chris_n        perl?
12:54 chris_n        Perl is different things to different people
12:54 chris_n        perl?
12:54 wahanui        it has been said that perl is different things to different people
12:54 * chris_n      is surprised wahanui did not know what perl is
12:56 gmcharlt       you'd think we didn't talk about Perl a lot in this channel
13:06 jcamins        Well, that's all the bug wrangling I can do this morning.
13:09 magnuse        jcamins++
13:29 sekjal         morning, #koha
13:30 sekjal         I'm QAing bug 7065.  the new patch looks good, but there are some minor issues
13:30 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=7065 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, kyle.m.hall, Signed Off , reserves table needs a primary key
13:30 paul_p         hi sekjal
13:30 sekjal         I'm not sure if they're actually issues, or just me being pedantic
13:30 paul_p         (& #koha)
13:30 sekjal         hi, paul_p
13:31 sekjal         first thing:  the patch starts with DBrev = 3.08.00.XXX... easy change, but should be 3.09.00.XXX
13:31 sekjal         larger:  calls the primary key "reserve_id" instead of "reservenumber", as originally spec'ed in the bug report
13:32 sekjal         not sure if that merits correction, or just a ::shrug:: and acceptance
13:32 sekjal         thoughts?
13:39 hdl            fwiw reserve_id is just an other new way to call ids... There are at the moment more than two different. Do we need one more ?
13:40 hdl            but do whatever you want.
13:40 hdl            you are QA manager.
13:43 sekjal         my changing it from reserve_id to reservenumber wouldn't improve functionality at all, and it would provide a chance for typos or missed replacements to slip in.
13:44 hdl            you asked for comments.
13:44 sekjal         lots of other tables have the _id suffix for their primary key, so it's not unprecedented.  It just loses the parallelism with biblio, biblioitems, items and borrowers
13:45 * sekjal       is thinking out loud... and in doing so, convincing himself not to make the change
13:45 edveal         Is anyone out there using EZProxy and authenticating against Koha? If so can we discuss how you are doing it?
13:46 paul_p         sekjal = look at http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/DB_schema_bugs#Column_names
13:46 paul_p         primary keys column name can be: id (in authorised_values table), xxxid (cityid), xxx_id (label_id), xxxId (limitId), xxxcode (branchcode), xxxnumber (borrowernumber) => choose how to name PK and update schema accordingly
13:46 paul_p         Maybe it's time to start a discussion on koha-devel for this topic !!!
13:47 paul_p         and decide something, add it to coding guidelines, and QA will be easier !
13:47 sekjal         some consistency would be good
13:47 paul_p         sekjal = agreed ;-)
13:48 paul_p         back in a few minutes
13:48 sekjal         but, in the interest of expediency and not introducing potential problems, I'm passing it QA
13:48 sekjal         we can clean it up once we know what to clean up TO
13:49 paul_p         sekjal = I disagree. I think it's the perfect case to start the discussion, decide something and not introduce more inconsistency !
13:50 hdl            edveal: maybe sending an e-mail on koha-devel or koha list could be more productive.
13:50 hdl            I think jcamins_away or gmcharlt could have some experience with ezproxy though
13:50 edveal         hdl yep I think you are right. Just thought I would try here and see.
13:51 sekjal         your call as RM.  I'm not sure we'll get a clear response in any kind of reasonable timeframe, though
13:51 sekjal         functionally, the patch looks good
13:51 sekjal         props to all involved (kyleh, jcamins, gmchalrt, slef, anyone I'm missing)
13:53 paul_p         sekjal = the other option is to use the "discussion" workflow = call for discussion, time of 2 weeks, proposal, vote, decision.
13:54 kyleh          my opinion on the matter, for what it's worth is that table_id is short, and easy to read.
13:55 paul_p         my opinion on the matter is : anything except id (only "id") and "no decision"
13:55 paul_p         xxxnumber is quite long but I can live with it, xxxxid or xxxx_id are equivalent, maybe _id is easier to read
13:55 kyleh          agreed, id alone causes problems with table joins. in reality, we should prepend every field in a table, but it makes everything so much more tedious.
14:00 Oak            kia ora #koha
14:08 kyleh          again, I think we should move to DBIX::Class. It would make it so we rarely have to write actually SQL, and a byproduct would be database independence.
14:18 oleonard       http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/RFC_for_using_DBIx_Class_in_Koha
14:23 kyleh          who wrote that? it looks good, but I get the feeling it has been there for awhile.
14:23 oleonard       http://wiki.koha-community.org/w/index.php?title=RFC_for_using_DBIx_Class_in_Koha&action=history
14:24 * kyleh        somehow missed the history tab at the top.
14:26 * sekjal       looks forward to trying to run Koha off of SQLite
14:26 kyleh          heh : )
14:27 hdl            or mongodb
14:27 * kyleh        just discovered Berkeley DB was purchased by Oracle. At least they can't by postgres.
14:28 jcamins_away   sekjal: I'm glad I'm not the only one looking forward to Koha on SQLite.
14:28 jcamins        edveal: no experience authenticating ezproxy against Koha, sorry.
14:31 chris_n        koha will pretty much run over Mariadb as-is
14:31 jcamins        Pretty much? Have you run into any gotchas?
14:35 edveal         thanks jcamins
14:35 chris_n        Maria is a bit stricter on syntax
14:35 chris_n        I may have a branch floating around which fixes the few issues I found
14:35 jcamins        You should file bugs. :)
14:35 jcamins        Are you going to be running Maria in production?
14:36 chris_n        not atm
14:36 chris_n        there may be a bug
14:37 chris_n        its been so long since I looked at it
14:37 chris_n        the installer runs fine
14:37 chris_n        there are only a very few gotchas which arise much later iirc
14:41 chris_n        well, it appears those changes are lost... sorry
14:41 jcamins        Oh well.
14:43 jcamins        If anyone wants to do some bug wrangling, all bugs with a status of "Pushed to Master" and a version of "rel_3_6" need to be checked to see if they're already in 3.6. If they were incorporated prior to the release of 3.6.0, the bug should be closed. If after 3.6.0, a note to that effect should be made on them, and the status changed to Pushed to Stable.
14:43 * jcamins      figured it was worth a try.
14:44 jcamins        Actually, I'd argue that any bug where the patch was pushed prior to 3.6.0 should be closed.
14:45 jcamins        (if there haven't been any updates since then)
14:47 chris_n        jcamins: aha!

14:48 chris_n        so there you are
14:48 jcamins        Cool, thanks.
14:49 chris_n        absolutely no guarantees there
14:50 jcamins        Of course.
14:51 jcamins        I won't be putting Koha with MariaDB into production any time soon.
14:52 wizzyrea       packages for 3.8.1 - any uh, timeline for that?
14:52 wizzyrea       guess I should ping eythian for that ansewr.
14:52 wizzyrea       answer*
14:54 slef           wizzyrea: I'll compile them if you want them now.
14:54 jcamins        I guess tomorrow I'll have to figure out how to set up an apt repo.
14:54 jcamins        (for 3.6.5)
14:54 wizzyrea       slef that would be amazing.
14:55 jcamins        @later tell eythian I'll be releasing 3.6.5 tomorrow. My thought is the short-term solution for packages is for me to set up a repo under cpbibliography.com, and then put the packages in the official repo once we've figured out how to do oldstable. Make sense?
14:55 huginn         jcamins: The operation succeeded.

15:42 jcamins        Whoah.
15:42 jcamins        Google redid their search.
15:43 jcamins        I think it receives my approbation.
15:47 jcamins        magnuse: I wonder if they have any sort of API.
15:48 jcamins        Let Google figure out how to translate "Sergei Esenin" into an appropriate identifier.
15:52 magnuse        jcamins: not sure about the api, need to do some reading...
15:52 magnuse        love the title of this: http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2012/05/introducing-knowledge-graph-things-not.html "things, not strings"
15:53 jcamins        magnuse: I don't know anything about it, I just liked the results. :)
15:53 magnuse        :-)
15:53 jcamins        Cool!
15:53 slef           Got our paypal restrictions lifted and added another sponsor to http://koha-community.org/kohacon12/sponsors/ - anyone else like to be added? If so, http://koha-community.org/kohacon12/sponsoring-kohacon12/ awaits you.
15:53 magnuse        i think it's based on their microformat-ish thinger... schema.org? rich snippets? not sure either...
15:54 jcamins        Paypal restrictions?
15:54 magnuse        ooh gotta love those sponsors :-)
15:54 * magnuse      wanders off to desert
15:54 slef           jcamins: Paypal to the co-op: "give us free access to your bank account, or else"
15:54 jcamins        Ah.
15:54 slef           jcamins: so we've BOGUd
15:54 jcamins        That's absurd.
15:55 slef           welcome to banking
15:56 slef           now we just have to hope that the co-operative bank will defend software.coop if Paypal tries to take all our money
15:56 * oleonard     thinks he needs something non-brain-taxing to work on today...
15:56 slef           which it probably will but really, we're a gnat compared to the banking co-op's 12 million members
15:57 jcamins        slef: you couldn't set up a separate account with *just* the money for the conference?
15:58 jcamins        oleonard: there's always bug wrangling.
15:58 slef           jcamins: hahahahaahahahahahahahahaahahahahahahahahahaha
15:58 jcamins        slef: what?
15:58 slef           jcamins: have you *seen* European banking security regulations?
15:58 jcamins        Nope.
15:59 slef           jcamins: I'm pretty sure it's taken us about a year to change the signatories on our current account...
15:59 jcamins        Wow.
15:59 * oleonard     scoffs at jcamins having never seen European banking security regulations
15:59 jcamins        Well, that's one (possibly the only) benefit to banking in the US.
16:00 slef           yeah... it's a tough balancing act between ease of access and ease of fraud
16:00 slef           which reminds me, maybe I should get a new dollar credit card before I next visit the US
16:01 slef           seeing as how you don't even check signatures over there... much less chip and PIN
16:01 slef           is that still so?
16:01 jcamins        That is, yes.
16:02 jcamins        If you write "this card is stolen" on the back, you'll be able to identify those places which do check.
16:03 oleonard       jcamins: and then you say, "Naw, just kidding?"
16:03 wizzyrea       technically signing the card = acceptance of the card terms
16:03 wizzyrea       so people who write see ID technically don't even have the right to use the card.
16:04 jcamins        wizzyrea: yes, but no one notices that they wrote "see ID" anyway.
16:04 wizzyrea       i know right
16:04 * oleonard     refers everyone to wizzyrea's history of performing citizens arrests for credit card fraud
16:04 * wizzyrea     flexes
16:06 jcamins        slef: you have a dollar credit card? Do you visit the US a lot?
16:09 slef           jcamins: only when I visit the US. Better exchange rate, plus I'm not trusting the USA with my main card.
16:09 slef           jcamins: only been there once... but will visit again.
16:10 nengard        hello #koha - I'm in a demo
16:10 nengard        say hi to the librarians in CT :)
16:10 * wizzyrea     waves from Kansas
16:10 slef           a demo? What do we want?
16:10 slef           Working Library Catalogues!
16:10 oleonard       Hi from Ohio
16:10 slef           When do we want them?
16:10 wizzyrea       NOW
16:10 slef           Well, like yesterday!
16:10 wizzyrea       hehe
16:10 jcamins        Hello nengard and librarians from CT!
16:10 sekjal         greetings from MA
16:10 slef           Greetings from Somerset, England.
16:11 nengard        thank you all!!
16:11 nengard        ttyl
16:11 wizzyrea       hehe
16:11 slef           he, she wandered off before we got naughty
16:11 slef           wahanui: nengard?
16:11 wahanui        somebody said nengard was fast
16:11 wizzyrea       that's exactly what I was thinking..
16:12 slef           @quote random
16:12 huginn         slef: Quote #151: "<seneca> you guys are my heroes" (added by wizzyrea at 07:41 PM, August 31, 2011)
16:12 slef           @roulette
16:12 huginn         slef: *click*
16:12 * jcamins      was looking forward to singing the Internationale.
16:20 jcamins        wizzyrea: oleonard just posted a patch to replace YUI autocomplete with jQueryUI autocomplete. :)
16:21 wizzyrea       oooh!
16:21 * oleonard     isn't sure why he didn't mark it as needs signoff before, but an updated patch was required anyway so there you go
16:24 oleonard       I hope the reason I didn't mark it 'needs signoff' before wasn't that I knew of some horrible bug which needed to be fixed first
16:24 jcamins        wizzyrea will find it if there is one, I'm sure. :)
16:26 sekjal         oleonard:  QAing bug 7932... is there a template param [% en %], and if so, where is it exported?
16:26 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=7932 normal, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, Signed Off , twitter share doesn't work with socialnetworks
16:27 oleonard       sekjal: Oh, that's a typo. I thought I fixed it
16:27 oleonard       I must not have attached the corrected patch.
16:27 sekjal         it also appears to be hardcoded to https:// for the current_url
16:28 * chris_n      hands oleonard more fudge
16:28 jcamins        Fudge?
16:28 wahanui        Fudge is the ambrosia of koha.
16:29 oleonard       sekjal: I can submit a corrected version
16:29 JoeLib001      Where are the logs?
16:29 wahanui        the logs are at http://stats.workbuffer.org/irclog/koha/
16:30 oleonard       Or do you mean Koha system logs JoeLib001 ?
16:35 sekjal         thanks, oleonard!
16:35 JoeLib001      Ah, no. That was what I was looking for.
16:35 JoeLib001      I probably should have a bookmark. ;-)
16:36 jcamins        JoeLib001: that's what we use wahanui for.
16:36 jcamins        Like so:
16:36 jcamins        curried coconut oatmeal chocolate chip cookies?
16:36 wahanui        curried coconut oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are at http://www.cookiemadness.net/2009/05/curry-coconut-oatmeal-chocolate-chip-cookies/
16:36 jcamins        Thanks, wahanui!
16:36 wahanui        jcamins: pas de quoi
16:36 JoeLib001      Hehehe. :-)
16:38 JoeLib001      What I am actually looking for is a way to batch edit Marc Records in Koha. I can't seem to find any. I have used MARC Edit before, but that means I would need to export all of my records and then re-import them. Would be nice, if there was a batch edit option.
16:39 hdl            JoeLib001: there is one in bugzilla.
16:39 jcamins        There is no batch edit functionality for bib records in Koha.
16:39 jcamins        There is a bug for a proposed batch edit function.
16:40 hdl            http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5725
16:40 huginn         04Bug 5725: enhancement, PATCH-Sent (DO NOT USE), ---, laurence.lefaucheur, Failed QA , Batch modifications for Biblios
16:40 JoeLib001      I entered all of my periodicals records as "Reference" items instead of something more reasonable like "Continuing Resources". :-)
16:40 jcamins        JoeLib001: you can batch edit items.
16:41 JoeLib001      There are no items associated with any of the records.
16:41 jcamins        Ah.
16:41 jcamins        Then your best bet is exporting then reimporting.
16:41 jcamins        (and overlaying)
16:42 JoeLib001      I figured as much when I went looking and didn't find any information readily available. :-)
16:42 JoeLib001      I was hopeful though. :-)
16:43 JoeLib001      QA is Quality Assurance?
16:44 chris_n        mostly
16:47 * cait         waves
16:47 JoeLib001      Thanks for the answers. Hopefully Koha will have a built-in batch editor sometime soon. :-) That would be awesome.
16:48 jcamins        Hi cait! How's Hamburg?
16:48 cait           haven't seen much yet outside of the congress center
16:48 cait           but good :)
16:48 chris_n        hey cait
16:48 cait           hi chris_n :)
16:49 talljoy        jcamins, you here?
16:49 jcamins        I am indeed.
16:49 talljoy        how are ya?  saw you on the program from KohaCon.  look forward to seeing you again.
16:49 jcamins        I won't actually be making it to KohaCon. I'll be presenting via Skype, or possibly via slef.
16:50 jcamins        :(
16:50 talljoy        oh, bummer.
16:50 talljoy        well, i'll see you digitally then.
16:50 jcamins        Yup. :)_
16:50 talljoy        but today...i'm getting an error when i run link_bibs_to_authorities.pl on 3.8
16:50 jcamins        You are?
16:50 jcamins        What's the error?
16:50 talljoy        Auth error: Cannot sort according to sequence (207) Bib-q
16:50 talljoy        oops  Bib-1
16:51 jcamins        Bib-q?
16:51 jcamins        Oh.
16:51 jcamins        Bib-1.
16:51 jcamins        Did you reindex?
16:51 talljoy        lol
16:51 talljoy        i did reindex the authorities and was going to try the bibs next.  this is a bib issue?
16:51 jcamins        I wouldn't have thought so.
16:51 jcamins        Is there another line in the error message?
16:52 talljoy        well, small database, it won't take me long to reindex.  and no...no other information.  just that one over and over and over and over
16:52 slef           jcamins: do you think you can get linphone or ekiga working with video, or using something like Bambuser with a telephone back-channel? We may have a Grade A+ uplink so I'd prefer not trying to avoid Skype making us a backbone router :-/
16:52 jcamins        slef: sure.
16:52 jcamins        talljoy: sounds like a stale configuration.
16:53 slef           jcamins: ta. If you can coordinate with mle to test it when he gets back (on Monday IIRC), that's safest.
16:53 jcamins        talljoy: you updated the Zebra configs for authorities, right?
16:53 talljoy        stale configuration?  of what?
16:53 jcamins        Zebra. authority-zebra-indexdefs.xsl, probably.
16:53 talljoy        hmmmm.....  all that was done was git fetch for the new version
16:53 jcamins        Yeah, there's your problem.
16:53 talljoy        yah...sounds like it.
16:54 jcamins        Just about all the Zebra config files were changed.
16:54 jcamins        etc/zebradb/marc_defs should be entirely replaced.
16:54 jcamins        etc/zebradb/authorities/etc/bib1.att should be updated
16:54 jcamins        And possibly a couple other files.
16:54 jcamins        Bug 7284 lists them.
16:54 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=7284 major, P3, ---, jcamins, Pushed to Stable , Authority matching algorithm improvements
16:55 talljoy        oh boy. a project.  Thanks jcamins++
16:55 jcamins        Of course, there will be additional changes since you're upgrading through several months.
16:58 * jcamins      reflects again on what a good idea it would be to have dev installs use symlinks.
16:58 jcamins        Or just point directly into the git clone.
16:58 jcamins        I use symlinks in mine.
17:23 chris_n        I wish I had a nickel for every minute I sit waiting on a computer
17:23 jcamins        chris_n: me too. Especially when testing Zebra-related things.
17:32 sekjal         idea for Makefile.PL:  if you chose dev install, provide an option to symlink Zebra configs on installation
17:33 jcamins        sekjal: I disagree with making it an option.
17:33 jcamins        The dev install is described as "run Koha out of the git repo."
17:34 jcamins        Better to just do exactly that, IMO.
17:34 bag            heya jcamins and sekjal
17:34 jcamins        However, other than making it optional, I am in complete agreement. :)
17:34 jcamins        I even reported a bug at some point.
17:35 jcamins        Hi there, bag.
17:35 sekjal         hi, bag
17:36 sekjal         jcamins: I like options, myself... especially with as rarely as one does an install v. maintenance
17:37 jcamins        sekjal: the reason not to make it an option is because it makes maintenance harder, and troubleshooting unpleasant, if there are two options.
17:37 jcamins        (for this particular thing)
17:37 jcamins        We don't make any allowance for people wanting to install just the templates.
17:38 jcamins        (but run the code out of the git repo)
17:38 jcamins        I'd sign off on a patch that added an option, of course.
17:41 sekjal         perhaps make the default setting the symlink, but leave copied files as a choice for legacy support
17:41 jcamins        I guess.
17:41 sekjal         hopefully no one will use it, and it can then be removed
17:42 jcamins        I, personally, would refuse to help anyone who used that option with troubleshooting Zebra issues.
17:42 jcamins        If others were less dubious about it, I suppose there's no reason it shouldn't be left as an option.
17:43 jcamins        With a warning along the lines of "you had better be *very* sure you want to do this, because it is very likely that you're just going to have a maintenance nightmare."
17:48 libsysguy      hey sekjal
17:49 libsysguy      rumor has it that you are interested in the catalyst project im working on
17:49 sekjal         libsysguy:  I read magnuse's G+ link, and Catalyst seems pretty awesome
17:50 sekjal         jcamins:  I can't see any good reason not to symlink, but maybe someone out there has one.... seems unlikely, but who knows
17:50 jcamins        sekjal: my feeling is that person should be forced to do it manually.
17:51 jcamins        For the simple reason that if that person does it manually, they will have to think about how they want to maintain it.
17:51 libsysguy      sekjal, yeah it really is.  I have used it before and thought it'd be perfect for Koha
17:51 libsysguy      I don't know why I didn't think about it sooner
17:52 jcamins        [off] Not using symlinks results in things like this: http://donum.numismatics.org/cgi-bin/koha/opac-search.pl?q=action-agent%3Ajce
17:52 sekjal         libsysguy:  handles T:T, DBIx, Solr, Plack/PSGI and plugins very aptly
17:53 libsysguy      sekjal: and much much more
17:54 libsysguy      plus the file structure makes a lot of sense
17:55 jcamins        libsysguy: any coherent file structure would be a great help.
17:56 sekjal         it would really help separate out plumbing issues from actual design issues
17:57 libsysguy      agreed to both of the above
17:57 libsysguy      and it should help out with using different databases
17:57 libsysguy      [off] looks for mbalmer
17:59 sekjal         libsysguy:  how far are you along your project?
17:59 libsysguy      well I have been able to integrate the themes and come up with a basic wrapper for the front end, all the models were auto generated so that was made of win
18:00 libsysguy      I am trying to figure out how I was to represent notices
18:00 libsysguy      which is the new part for my proof of concept
18:00 libsysguy      but porting the old stuff for that one section was not bad at all
18:00 libsysguy      I've only been able to put in a few days on it
18:00 slef           hi all
18:00 sekjal         I'd think notices would be a kind of View...
18:01 slef           not read my email yet - anyone here for the kohacon meeting?
18:01 cait           here
18:01 JoeLib001      I am having issues importing the records I exported an edited.

18:01 libsysguy      well i made the tools/overduerules a view
18:01 jcamins        cait sends her apologies because she needs to sleep.
18:01 jcamins        :)
18:01 cait           I havne' thad time to update the program on the wiki another time to add the abstracts
18:01 JoeLib001      It's not matching any of my records.
18:02 * thd          also needs to sleep but is still here :)
18:02 slef           jwagner: can I take it in a maybe very short meeting?
18:02 libsysguy      but the notice bit needed reworking http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Notifications_RFC

18:04 jwagner        Did you get my email of May 14? I haven't gotten an answer
18:05 slef           jwagner: err. I don't remember it. What was the question?
18:05 slef           or I'll go look for the email if it's not suitable for the public
18:05 jwagner        I am not going to be able to attend in person, but I can do my presentation remotely
18:06 jwagner        Is it Skype?
18:06 slef           ah, right, that's a shame but we should be able to do a remote presentation.
18:06 slef           I'm hoping not Skype
18:06 jcamins        jwagner: mle should be back on Monday, at which point we'll try to get ekiga/linphone working. I'm in the same boat.
18:06 jwagner        I have no clue how to use any of that....
18:06 jcamins        jwagner: me either, but I'm sure it'll be easy.
18:06 jwagner        I was going to get a Skype tutorial from a friend, but you don't want to use that?
18:06 slef           I'm hoping for something like linphone or ekiga or jitsi or something with video, or using something like Bambuser with a telephone back-channel? We may have a Grade A+ uplink so I'd prefer not trying to avoid Skype making us a backbone router :-/
18:07 slef           if you see what I mean
18:07 jwagner        OK, I will await the (hopefully easy) instructions :-)
18:07 jwagner        Thanks
18:07 slef           when I worked at a university, long ago, Skype was notorious... I don't know if it's still the same
18:07 slef           We'll find a way, but it'll won't be this week.
18:08 thd            Skype must be even more notorious now that Microsoft own it.
18:08 slef           I'd suggest sending over slides+script and maybe getting a volunteer to agree to help deliver it if all else fails.
18:08 jwagner        OK, will work on that.  The only format I can do is .ppt
18:09 slef           thd: heh. Not sure universities care if Microsoft own things.
18:09 cait           jcamins: you could perhaps convert to pdf then
18:09 slef           jwagner: we should be able to read that, but may be using LibreOffice to display them.
18:09 cait           hm jwagner
18:09 jwagner        as long as you can read the file
18:09 slef           jwagner: I'm 90% sure we'll have time to check all files ahead of time.
18:09 jwagner        Thanks
18:09 slef           jwagner: there will be an email with projector specs this week
18:10 slef           #info there will be an email with projector specs this week
18:10 jwagner        OK, that was my question.  Anyone else?
18:10 slef           #info email kohacon12 AT software.coop with any questions for most reliable answering.
18:11 thd            LibreOffice should work fine as long as you avoid some extreme features of PowerPoint.  Be careful about trying to embed videos in a Power Point presentation.

18:11 thd            text rules
18:11 cait           safest then might be convertig to pdf

18:12 slef           any other questions?
18:12 cait           slef: I haven't updated the wiki with the new info from your mail
18:13 cait           travelling this week
18:13 slef           cait: it wasn't meant f... oh wrong mail
18:13 slef           ok, let's move to this
18:13 slef           #topic Roadmap to KohaCon12
18:13 slef           I emailed a roadmap update to volunteers about an hour ago.
18:13 cait           slef?
18:13 wahanui        slef is an avid cyclist
18:14 slef           Does anyone who hasn't seen it want to see it?
18:15 thd            Is there anything of general note on the roadmap?
18:15 slef           And relatedly, is anyone not on the volunteers email list who wants to be?
18:15 slef           thd: yeah, "*** Katrin is a hero!"
18:15 * cait         is not
18:16 wizzyrea       cait is also a hero
18:16 wahanui        okay, wizzyrea.
18:16 wizzyrea       cait?
18:16 wahanui        That's Ms. Cait to you! or in a very good mood today :) or a librarian, you will get wahanui's information or a hero
18:16 wizzyrea       mhm.
18:17 slef           thd: I think the main thing is I think we now have just enough sponsorship to avoid being absurdly spartan, following the mail-emailing of support companies.
18:18 slef           thd: registrations are now about 70 and we're finally seeing more UK registrations and we've only just now had our first failed registration
18:18 thd            What is a failed registration?
18:18 slef           in that case, they didn't tick any boxes
18:18 slef           so sent us their info, but aren't attending anything
18:18 slef           I queried it and they've not replied. Not sure what was going on there.
18:19 cait           I think you can't do more
18:19 slef           hrm, I should be noting this
18:19 slef           #info now about 70 registrations
18:19 slef           #info now barely enough sponsorship, following mass-emailing of support companies and some anonymous donations - thanks to everyone who has chipped in
18:20 slef           #info mle is sorting the network out, but we may need an extra access point
18:20 slef           And two questions:
18:20 slef           Do we want to meet up on Monday 4 June, 6pm, Library bar?
18:21 slef           actually, I'll only ask that one... other one can be skipped
18:21 thd            What is the Library bar?
18:21 wahanui        the Library bar is the first branch created and foo is the second
18:22 slef           the Library bar is also a bar next to the conference venue, at the front of Teviot
18:22 wahanui        okay, slef.
18:22 thd            Is that the name of the bar, Library Bar?
18:22 slef           yes
18:22 wizzyrea       apparently they have those all over the world. :)
18:22 jcamins        thd: anyone in the area will know where it is.
18:23 slef           it's in Teviot
18:23 jcamins        slef: I know. I was clarifying that it's a good place to meet, even if you forget that.
18:23 slef           #idea meet up on Monday 4 June, 6pm, Library bar
18:24 Oak            night guys.
18:24 slef           Any more questions?
18:24 slef           before cait and me pass out? :)
18:25 * thd          is already passed out :)
18:25 cait           slef: perhaps we should add a page to the wiki with where people are staying and when arriving
18:25 slef           cait: good idea!
18:25 cait           I mean people can add their dates and hotels themselves
18:25 cait           so easier to meet
18:26 slef           a page, or a section on the Volunteers page?
18:26 cait           I think I arrive at the airport around 4pm, not sure about the exact time right now
18:26 cait           hm, might be interesting for all, but volunteers would be ok too I think
18:27 slef           trying to add it now
18:27 cait           slef++
18:28 slef           grrr how do I do a table?
18:28 slef           http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Help:Tables
18:29 cait           slef: steal an existing one? ;)
18:29 oleonard       Use the wysiwyg editor?
18:29 cait           {| at beginning, closing at end
18:29 jcamins        Delegate to someone who is not me?
18:30 cait           slef: point me to the table, I can do it
18:30 cait           hm page
18:30 thd            Always steal an existing one :)
18:30 cait           ok, not sure I can, but will try
18:30 slef           nah got it now
18:32 thd            Tables had been problematically on one line in the source code when we had started using MediaWiki until I started reformatting them on multiple lines following good MediaWiki examples.

18:34 slef           cait: it feels like it's only a few days before koha-community now, with all I know needs to be done!
18:34 slef           anyone like me to add them to the table?
18:34 slef           Who 	 arriving when? 	 staying where?
18:34 cait           my dates on the desk at work...
18:35 cait           so will add myself later
18:35 slef           thd: dang I just wrote it on one line because that was the easiest way to convert it from WikiText to MediaWiki format
18:36 thd            slef: No problem but tables are much easier to edit when each row has its own line.
18:36 slef           oh wait, each row has its own line
18:36 slef           that's what I did
18:36 thd            :)
18:36 slef           but some of the examples have each cell on its own line
18:36 slef           which confuses me
18:37 thd            If the cells have long content each cell on its own line might be helpful.
18:38 slef           I agree. Who/when/where isn't long.
18:39 thd            Maybe my discovery long ago had been examples of each cell on its own line.  I do not remember correctly now but I am too tired to look properly.
18:39 cait           slef: fixed the formatting a bit
18:39 cait           everyone, refresh :)
18:39 slef           cait: oooh I could do with a refresh!
18:44 thd            slef: Using "|-" on a line alone as a row separator allows readable source for tables in which some cells have long content.
18:46 JoeLib001      Will Koha yell at me, if I try to add a record with the same control number as another record?
18:46 jcamins        JoeLib001: no, it will assign a new biblionumber.
18:46 jcamins        You should use a matching rule on biblionumber and 999$c.
18:47 jcamins        There should be one by default, but isn't.
18:47 cait           JoeLib001: and duplicat 001 is not a good idea, but no yelling
18:47 jcamins        Another item on my to-do list.
18:47 thd            slef: counting the lines beginning with "|" inside a column is easier for tracking columns than having rows on one line.
18:47 JoeLib001      Ok, match by biblionumber and What is 999$c?
18:48 jcamins        Biblionumber.
18:48 JoeLib001      Ah, I see. :-)
18:48 JoeLib001      Thanks. :-)
18:49 thd            In an ideal world 999$c would be the same as 001.
18:49 JoeLib001      :-)
18:50 JoeLib001      Mine's all kinds of messed up then. hehehe.
18:50 thd            However, we first need much better import tools which preserve the previous 001 values for reference.
18:51 jcamins        JoeLib001: focus only on the biblionumber in 999$c.
18:51 cait           thd: it owuld need some work, because making 001 the bilbionumber would totally break our union catalog model and the record linking for us
18:51 thd            JoeLib001: We do not yet have those much better import tools or I have not taken the time to push some old code.
18:52 JoeLib001      Thanks, that should get me going. :-)
18:52 thd            cait: I am not suggesting making 001 the biblionumber but merely allowing it to be the same.
18:52 cait           thd: not all 001 are numeric
18:52 thd            cait: Obviously, all systems using the biblionumber would need updating.
18:55 thd            cait: Obviously, you have identified the problem of using previous 001s as the biblionumber for all cases.  Using the biblionumber in 001 and updating all databases using the 001 is safer.
18:59 jcamins        thd: I think the thing to do is have a cataloging plugin that will optionally put the same data in 001 as the biblionumber. Anything else would require too much work for dubious reward.
19:01 thd            Previous, 001s can be preserved in 035 $z as previously used cancelled numbers.  Certainly, complying more closely with standards would be more work, however, standards compliance like 'being good' is partly its own reward :)
19:03 thd            cait: We really need to move beyond MARC while preserving MARC for lossless import and export which is much much more work but a task with very great rewards.
19:04 cait           I think one step at a time
19:04 cait           there are lots of things to do
19:04 cait           rewriting the search is one of them
19:04 mbalmer        evening.
19:04 wahanui        i guess evening is better for me - but not too late
19:04 slef           ha ha ha ha ha http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/theroyalfamily/4515617/Queens-Sandringham-gift-shop-has-sold-gollidolls-for-a-year.html
19:04 thd            Definately, one step at a time in slow pieces.
19:05 slef           what about
19:06 thd            cait: Definately, care has to be taken to not remove old features when adding new ones too avoid breaking things and merely substituting new bugs for old ones.
19:06 slef           each $3?
19:06 wahanui        each $3 is in fact the id of the topic.
19:06 slef           circcontrol?
19:06 wahanui        circcontrol is set to...
19:06 slef           wahanui: current status?
19:06 wahanui        current status is "Failed QA"
19:06 thd            s/too/to/
19:07 slef           I couldn't damn wahanui any more than that.
19:07 slef           wahanui: that status?
19:07 wahanui        slef: i haven't a clue
19:08 slef           wahanui: the caching stuff?
19:08 wahanui        somebody said the caching stuff was really cool. Bug 8092.
19:08 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=8092 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jcamins, Signed Off , Koha should use CHI caching framework
19:08 jcamins        Heh.
19:08 jcamins        Very true.
19:08 wahanui        I know. That's why I said it.
19:11 thd            slef: All the various reuses of identifiers in MARC such as $3 or $0 are difficult to attend to correctly in system implementation and conformance to MARC standards, which is one reason we need to eventually have MARC as merely an import and export format.
19:13 slef           Very true.
19:13 wahanui        I know. That's why I said it.
19:20 slef           ok am I being dense... it is 001 and then the full US phone number isn't it?
19:20 jcamins        slef: 00 +1 XXX-XXX-XXXX
19:21 jcamins        Wait, hold on.
19:21 jcamins        Yes, that's right.
19:21 wahanui        I know.
19:22 * slef         emails them to ask why their phone number doesn't work
19:23 thd            slef: Yes, the US bullies grabbed the first code, 001 for too many things. :)
19:23 * thd          runs off to work
19:30 wizzyrea       @later tell eythian when can we expect the 3.8.1 packages?
19:30 huginn         wizzyrea: The operation succeeded.
19:31 slef           cool, got it
19:31 slef           wizzyrea: ooh I should check on our compilation!
19:32 slef           ok I don't understand that... let me rerun it
19:33 slef           should I be confused by the lack of v3.08.01 tag?

21:24 rangi          id file a bug
21:24 tcohen         m'kay
21:25 rangi          nothing changed super recently in that script
21:26 rangi          http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=6913  <-- would be my guess

21:31 tcohen         rangi, I cant see related changes there
21:31 rangi          hmm
21:31 rangi          odd
21:31 rangi          seems to be working here
21:32 tcohen         found it
21:32 tcohen         i used mkpasswd to generate the db user passwd
21:32 rangi          typo in the sites-conf.xml?
21:32 rangi          ahh
21:32 tcohen         mysql doesn't like it
21:32 rangi          yeah, that makes sense
21:32 rangi          sed wont either

22:02 rangi          anyone about?
22:03 * jcamins_away is.
22:03 rangi          bug 3521
22:03 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=3521 enhancement, P3, ---, koha.sekjal, Pushed to Master , Items table in catalogue/detail.pl and cataloguing/additem.pl is sorted nonsensically
22:03 rangi          hold for 3.10 .. push for 3.8.2 .. opinions?
22:04 rangi          http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/attachment.cgi?id=9520  <-- small change
22:08 rangi          im leaning to 3.8.2 it seems to make sense to me
22:08 jcamins        Yeah, 3.8.2.
22:08 rangi          cool
22:17 hdl            fwiw, copynumber is null in most libraries, where barcode is not. But who care
22:17 hdl            s
22:17 rangi          hmm but it was never sorting on barcode anyway was it?
22:18 rangi          was just date accessioned
22:18 jcamins        Nope. Just branchname.
22:18 jcamins        And date accessioned.
22:18 hdl            no, but it doesnot make much sense to add order on an empty value
22:18 rangi          so null will drop it back to branch, enumchron, dateaccessiond
22:18 jcamins        hdl: it becomes an efficient no-op for libraries that don't populate copy number.
22:19 jcamins        For those libraries that do populate copy number, it will be very helpful.
22:19 hdl            efficient ?
22:20 jcamins        hdl: index statistics should enable MySQL to compile that out of the query entirely.
22:20 jcamins        Even if not, I don't think it's a serious performance issue.
22:21 hdl            you mean that kind of no-op flooding the code all over the place, and that some libraries envision as a bug, you spend days on and finally you find that it is not a bug... it is a misplaced feature...
22:22 hdl            mis-used un-documented feature
22:23 hdl            but I don't say more.
22:23 hdl            have a nice evening.
22:24 rangi          if you feel that strongly you should ask paul to revert it from master maybe
22:24 jcamins        rangi: not much point of that. It doesn't break functionality for anyone, and most academic libraries use copynumber.
22:33 rangi          jcamins++ #thanks for all the bug status updating
22:34 rangi          i only have 127 more mails to read now :)
22:34 jcamins        rangi: I have another 70 to do.
22:34 jcamins        Alas.
22:34 eythian        jcamins: when you've got a minute, can you point me in the direction of how analytics should best be used? My scenario is articles of a journal/magazine being catalogued.
22:35 jcamins        eythian: how detailed are the subjects?
22:35 eythian        @later tell wizzyrea I hope to do that today, other stuff permitting.
22:35 huginn         eythian: The operation succeeded.
22:35 eythian        jcamins: what does that mean?
22:36 jcamins        eythian: well, the most sensible workflow to use depends on what level of detail the library uses.
22:36 eythian        what kind of detail?
22:36 jcamins        Are they just stub records, with no subject information at all?
22:36 jcamins        Records with very broad subjects?
22:37 jcamins        Detailed subject analysis as with indexing?
22:37 eythian        Oh, no. I think they'll be properly catalogued articles.
22:37 eythian        at least, not just dtubs
22:37 eythian        *stubs
22:38 jcamins        Okay, the easiest way to create them would be to use the EasyAnalytics feature.
22:38 eythian        OK. How does that work?
22:38 jcamins        Incredibly easily.
22:38 eythian        :)
22:38 eythian        are there docs somewhere?
22:38 jcamins        You enable it, create a record for the volume, go to the Analyze tab, and click "Analyze this item."
22:39 jcamins        Should be...
22:39 jcamins        http://manual.koha-community.org/3.8/en/cataloging.html#cataloganalytics
22:39 jcamins        Actually...
22:39 eythian        oh hey, that does look easy.

22:40 eythian        Out of curiosity, what's the other way? Manually filling in 773$w?
22:40 jenkins_koha   Starting build #24 for job Koha_3.8.x (previous build: SUCCESS)
22:40 eythian        heh
22:40 eythian        OK then, what's the easy way?
22:40 jcamins        The workflow described there is what you'd do if you already had records for all your articles.
22:41 jcamins        The *easy* way is to create the record for the volume, then go to the analytics tab on the left.
22:41 jcamins        Then click "Analyze this record" or something like that.
22:41 eythian        That lets you create child items for articles then?
22:41 jcamins        It's in the item table.
22:41 jcamins        Yup.
22:41 jcamins        Everything is automatically filled in.
22:42 jcamins        (in terms of leader and 773)
22:42 eythian        OK, cool. I'll have a play with those now and work out what is the best.
22:42 eythian        Thanks!
22:42 jcamins        The way I used to do it was 100% manually.
22:42 jcamins        You're welcome.
22:42 eythian        that's the only way I've done it before to
22:42 eythian        o
22:43 jcamins        I prefer the simplified workflows.
22:43 jcamins        Actually, there's another workflow, too.
22:43 jcamins        It's really cool.
22:43 jcamins        One moment
22:44 eythian        > No system preferences matched your search for easyanalytics.
22:44 eythian        hrm
22:44 eythian        what version did it appear in?
22:44 jcamins        3.6.0.
22:44 eythian        curious
22:44 jcamins        Ah, this is a nice one.
22:45 jcamins        If you're not using items for serials (many places don't), that doesn't work so well.
22:46 jcamins        This may be 3.8.0+ only, though.
22:46 jcamins        Not sure.
22:46 jcamins        View a record.
22:46 jcamins        Under the "New" button on the cataloging toolbar is a "New child record" option.
22:46 eythian        oh: EasyAnalyticalRecords
22:47 eythian        that'll be why I couldn't find it.
22:47 jcamins        Yep.
22:47 eythian        the sysprefs needs a 'keywords' feature so that a search for "analytics" would find it.
22:47 jcamins        Oh, that's right. I also insisted on an "Analyze items" option under the new button.
22:47 jcamins        Cool. :)
22:48 eythian        What does the 'analytics' tab in cataloguing do?
22:48 eythian        does it just show stuff?
22:49 jcamins        No. See on the right. "Create analytic record"?
22:49 eythian        no...
22:49 jcamins        Do you have items?
22:49 eythian        it looks just like the 'normal' view
22:49 eythian        oh wait
22:49 eythian        I don't. I dumb.
22:50 eythian        So, that way links to the item, rather than just the record?
22:50 jcamins        Right.
22:50 eythian        OK
22:50 jcamins        The "Create child record" option links to the bib record.
22:50 eythian        ah right
22:50 eythian        I can see them using both methods.
22:51 eythian        But now I know how they work at least, that's good :) thanks for that
22:51 jcamins        You're welcome.
22:53 jcamins        Did my suggestion of setting up a temporary apt repo so that we don't have to worry about reconfiguring debian.k-c.org right now make sense to you?
22:53 jcamins        Alternatively, I suppose I could get rangi to tell me how to make a ppa.
22:54 jcamins        And, for that matter, what a ppa is.
22:54 rangi          hmm ppa is ok for ubuntu
22:54 rangi          personal package archive
22:54 jcamins        Ah. But won't work for Debian?
22:54 rangi          would be better to make a proper oldstable dist
22:54 eythian        jcamins: yeah, it's good. I hope it won't be too long before I manage to set up the k-c repo to do it though.
22:55 jcamins        eythian: I hope that, too! But I figure better to have the packages *somewhere* now, than nowhere until later.
22:55 eythian        but if you want your own one in the interim, nothing wrong with that.
22:55 eythian        definitely
22:56 rangi          jcamins: yeah the ppa builds for ubuntu releases, it will most likely just work for debian too, but sometimes it might not
23:02 tcohen         how about having a koha-3.8 and then a koha-3.10 packages
23:02 rangi          hmm i like dists better
23:02 tcohen         koha-3.8-3.8.0, koha-3.8-3.8.1 revision
23:03 tcohen         oldstable would make it it you maintain just two stable dists
23:03 rangi          we do anyway
23:03 rangi          3.4 is EOL
23:04 tcohen         right
23:05 rangi          you'd have to do things with conflicting etc
23:05 rangi          if you had different packages
23:05 eythian        tcohen: it would allow people to pick "conservative" or "progressive" or "oh god it bleeds" and stay where they want to be, so oldstable would become 3.8.whatever when 3.6 goes EOL
23:06 rangi          ie if you wanted to move from koha-3.8 package to koha-3.10 you'd have to remove one, add the other .. can be messy
23:06 tcohen         rangi, i get it. i didn't think about that transition problems
23:08 rangi          but, its something we need to figure out when its debian proper too
23:09 rangi          course i have to finish bug 4330 before that can be done anyway
23:09 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=4330 normal, P3, ---, chris, Needs Signoff , Copyright statements out of date
23:09 eythian        rangi: when it's in debian proper, it won't update very fast anyway.
23:09 rangi          tis true
23:10 eythian        Probably best making a decision each time it's close to freeze as to which version to put in
23:10 rangi          yeah, thats a good point
23:10 jcamins        Could someone please check bug 7129 for me?
23:10 huginn         04Bug http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=7129 normal, P5 - low, ---, aleksa, Pushed to Master , actual cost showing too many zeros
23:10 jcamins        I don't think it was ever actually pushed.
23:10 eythian        and then have testing/unstable track the current stable, or something like that.
23:10 jcamins        Anywhere.
23:10 rangi          looking now
23:10 jcamins        Thanks.
23:11 rangi          hmm nope
23:11 rangi          not in master, or 3.8.x
23:12 jcamins        Thanks.
23:12 jcamins        Not in 3.6.x either.

23:32 roygbivovacl   hiya eythian (and all)
23:32 eythian        hi
23:32 roygbivovacl   just trying to upgrade debian on test...
23:33 eythian        ok
23:36 roygbivovacl   updated the packages, press 'U' which marks everything that can be upgraded as "to be upgraded. Nothing seems to happen
23:37 eythian        It doesn't change a whole lot, visually.
23:37 eythian        But now press 'g'
23:37 eythian        it should give you a big list of updates in pretty colours.
23:37 roygbivovacl   yep
23:37 eythian        and if you press 'g' again, it'll actually run the upgrades.
23:38 eythian        (I'm using updates and upgrades interchangeably here, badly)
23:40 jcamins        Hm.
23:40 jcamins        6039 is not going into 3.6.x.
23:40 jcamins        Sorry.
23:41 jcamins        If anyone wants to make a very compelling argument, I'll listen politely and not push it anyway.
23:41 eythian        papa: it's your patch
23:42 jcamins        eythian: that is compelling, but I'm still not convinced.
23:42 jcamins        ;)
23:42 eythian        heh
23:43 papa           ok, maybe I can find something more compelling
