12:57 laurence hi, I'm Laurence, beginning today at Biblibre, previously librarian, already working with koha
12:57 owen Hi laurence, welcome. I'm from the Nelsonville Public Library in Ohio, USA. I work on Koha's templates/interface
13:00 laurence hi nengard, I'm going to work on koha3 french docs, so I guess we'll be in contact soon !
13:00 nengard hi laurence - maybe you can help me push to get a more community friendly site up for that documentation :)
13:13 Amit thanks paul
13:19 Amit hi josh what is your response about delhi public library
13:20 nicomo nengard ++ and I'd so love to see that plone site up ;-)
13:27 Amit see this link
13:27 Amit everyone
13:27 Amit[…]5B4D?OpenDocument
13:27 Amit and give me some response
13:28 Amit[…]ne_100102330.html
13:28 Amit this one also
13:32 owen gmcharlt around?
13:37 Amit any body check this link
13:52 owen What's the difference between the "publicationyear" variable and the "copyrightdate" variable in
13:53 owen Do those get pulled from different locations in the MARC record?
13:53 owen In the example I'm looking at copyrightdate is populated and publicationyear isn't
14:13 nengard owen - my guess is that one is coming from the 245c and the other from the leader
14:13 nengard but without seeing the code i don't know which is which
14:14 owen Ah, the leader. That would make sense.
14:14 atz interesting results of the OS ILS survey
14:14 atz
14:14 nengard atz - very very interesting
14:14 nengard posted it on open sesame too :)
14:14 owen What did you guys see? I couldn't face wading through it this morning
14:15 atz nengard: in particular since the weak spots for koha (2.2.9) were documentation and installation
14:15 nengard good stuff for koha ;) - top is overall ILS satifaction - the prob is that it's for the older version - we need a survey for the new release
14:15 nengard atz - i missed that :) documentation is no longer weak - if i do say so myself
14:15 nengard i haven't read it all yet
14:16 owen I wonder if people who have switched to Koha know more about what they're getting into than people who go with commercial vendors.
14:16 atz Documentation completeness: 2.7 (lowest overall score for Koha)
14:17 nengard at least not an ILS - have been through other processes
14:24 owen Hi liz-nekls
14:26 atz you have to love the payoff of the Delhi Public library announcement
14:26 owen ?
14:26 atz "busiest public library in Southeast Asia" chooses Koha
14:30 liz-nekls atz hehehe
14:30 liz-nekls mornin owen
14:34 owen Anyone here hacked on the OPAC xsl templates?
14:37 ryan owen: re: pubdate, unfortunately the default marc21 framework maps 260‡c to copyrightdate, but the unimarc framework maps to pubyear.
14:37 ryan marc21 pubyear will be unmapped by defualt, and converse for unimarc.
14:37 owen So neither reference the leader.
14:40 ryan owen: no.
14:42 owen That makes it sound like anywhere we want to output a date the template should say if pubyear { pubyear } else { copyrightdate }
14:44 ryan well, being on the marc21 side, i'd prefer the opposite :)
16:29 owen paul still around?
16:59 nicomo owen : paul just left and will be out of the office until tomorrow afternoon (local time)
