15:11 rch_ paul: around?
15:11 paul yep
15:11 paul 'morning
15:12 rch_ 'evening
15:14 rch_ rewriting is good, right? :)
15:14 rch_ as long as the new code is better than the old code :)
15:15 rch_ talked with chris about the serials problem, and he came up with a nice solution
15:16 rch_ just a few code additions, all wrapped in a system preference, so no change to functionality unless the user wants it.
15:17 rch_ so using the itemnumber already in reserves table, we can reserve a specific item.
15:17 paul a systempreference useful in 3.0, or just for 2.2 ?
15:17 paul right, that's the way SANOP did in 3.0
15:17 rch_ not sure, since we'd have to manage sanop's -- right.
15:18 paul ???
15:18 rch_ well, useful first for rel_2_2,
15:19 rch_ but haven't looked at 3_0 yet... the serials management in 22 is the driving force.
15:20 rch_ but yes, should be useful for 3_0 as well.  
15:21 rch_ it is gaining more features...
15:21 paul because there are a lot of new features in rel_2_2, that will lower stability, not be useful for all libraries, ... but maybe we should speak of that on koha-devel...
15:22 rch_ right
15:22 rch_ well, if need be, we can maintain this on our local repository,
15:22 rch_ but of course we worry about drifting too far from stock rel_2_2
15:23 paul no, in savannah it's ok, but i was wondering how to manage official releases.
15:23 paul i've seen that most libraries don't read release notes.
15:23 Mitch sup guys
15:23 paul so, it could be interesting to point that there are some new features
15:24 rch_ sure
15:24 Mitch chirs are you here
15:25 rch_ this should fix the current serials problems, and add the routing feature if the item-reserve syspref would be set.
15:25 paul USD100 that chris is sleeping ;-)
15:25 rch_ (hi Mitch )
15:25 Mitch sup
15:25 Mitch I was trying to solve a problem with my Koha 2.2.7 for windows
15:25 Mitch with him
15:25 Mitch can wither of youhelp me
15:25 paul why with him specificaly ?
15:26 paul throw your question, we will see if we can help
15:26 paul rch_: where is kados atm ? away again, or just over-overloaded ?
15:26 rch_ paul: the latter
15:26 dewey it has been said that the latter is quite interesting since their collection could start with koha
15:27 paul when will we have a chance to have yui member commit ?
15:28 rch_ i thought he committed some of it... maybe not
15:28 Mitch The patron can check out book.  I then can issue the book to the patron but the book neither shows up on the patrons screen as issued nor in the issued section however in the patron area when you click there name I can see the book in the Items on loan area.  
15:29 Mitch Thats the story if you need any clarification please ask
15:29 paul wow... strange...
15:29 Mitch I ment the patron can reserve book
15:29 Mitch for the first sentence
15:30 paul an issue without reserve works fine ?
15:30 Mitch ?
15:31 paul you can issue a book without reserve. does that work fine ?
15:31 Mitch I am not sure everything with reserve work out perfectly you can see in both on user side and admin
15:32 Mitch Do you mean have the user check out the book remotely and dissable the reserve?
15:33 Mitch I am not sure how to do that if it is possible I would prefer to have them reserve then the librarian issue it
15:34 Mitch and the librian return it into the system
15:36 Mitch On the user side it says nothing has been checked out
15:36 Mitch Even though it is in the items on loan in the Patrons account
15:40 Mitch any ideas chris told me to check the pearl error log but I could not find it in windows usr koha dir
