14:17 owen chris around?
14:20 chris sorta
14:20 chris sup owen?
14:21 owen Hi chris, I had a question about that I thought you might be able to answer. Why does it check to see whether outstanding fines > 5 ? What makes that the magic number?
14:21 chris hmm it shouldnt, it should use the systempreference noissuescharge
14:22 owen Okay, that's what I thought. I'll see if I can make that change.
14:25 chris cool
14:31 owen Come to think of it, the noissuescharge setting doesn't seem to affect at all...
14:32 chris it should
14:32 chris in
14:32 owen checks whether you have /any/ debt, and asks for confirmation before issuing. But you're not prevented from issuing if you exceed noissuescharge
14:32 chris ohh really?
14:33 chris it should set issuingimpossible
14:33 chris it does in my
14:33 owen I'm looking at dev_week
14:33 owen What version do you have?
14:33 chris hmmm
14:33 chris lemme check
14:35 owen I see where it's dealing with noissuescharge
14:35 owen if ($amount > $noissuescharge) { $flaginfo{'noissues'} = 1;
14:38 chris right, it should be being doing in sub canbookbeissued too
14:38 chris being done even
14:39 chris maybe that got ripped out at some point
14:39 chris hmm yeah i can see it
14:39 chris heres what i have
14:40 chris if ($amount >$noissuescharge){
14:40 chris $needsconfirmation{DEBT} = sprintf("%.2f",$amount);
14:40 chris whoops bad paste
14:40 chris trying again
14:40 chris if ($amount >$noissuescharge){
14:40 chris $issuingimpossible{DEBT} = sprintf("%.2f",$amount);
14:40 chris }
14:40 chris elsif ($amount > 0 && $amount <=$noissuescharge){
14:40 chris $needsconfirmation{DEBT} = sprintf("%.2f",$amount);
14:41 chris }
14:41 chris so if its more than the amount, you cant issue, if its more than 0, but less than the amount you get a confirmation
14:41 owen I don't find that in my copies from dev_week /or/ rel_2_2
14:41 chris maybe thats not how other libraries like it, so it may have been removed at some point
14:42 chris hmm ill have a chat with kados, and see if i should commit that back into dev_week
14:42 kados what's up?
14:42 kados missed the first bit
14:42 chris ok, in the Circ2 i have running at hlt, kapiti etc
14:43 chris there is the bit above
14:43 chris which says, if the borrower owes more than a certain amount (set in syspref)
14:43 chris you cant issue to them
14:43 kados right
14:43 chris if they owe less, you get a confirmation
14:43 kados makes good sense
14:44 kados I think that'd be good in dev_week
14:44 chris but it looks like in dev_week it checks once when it sees the borrower
14:45 chris but not again when trying to issue
14:46 kados hmmm
14:46 chris so theres a chance the person can rack up charges that would push them over the threshhold while issuing, which wont get stopped ..but that might be desired behaviour
14:46 kados I don't know of any libraries where it is
14:47 kados (the desired behavior that is)
14:47 owen If a library doesn't want to be stopped by the limit they could just set it really high
14:47 chris all true owen
14:47 chris ok, ill commit that into dev_week
14:48 kados cool
14:48 owen Thanks chris
