14:05 nahuel hi
14:05 nahuel does someone patched the es-es.po file ?
14:05 nahuel there are some errors like :
14:05 nahuel % s: Unknown or unsupported format specification
14:08 atz_ nahuel: recall also that there was a bad value in one of the SQL files where es was mapped to RU or something
14:08 atz_ so there may be a mismatch
14:08 nahuel i'm talking generating the templates
14:08 nahuel with
14:09 atz_ right, what I'm saying is that if that value was drawn upon for any of the template work, then it would be a mismatch w/ the rest of the process
14:09 atz_ (i don't know whether or not it is)
14:10 nahuel ok
14:11 atz_ if you can get the same thing to occur w/ languages besides russian and spanish, then we can be sure it is something else
14:12 nahuel it's just some problems in po
14:12 nahuel the some strings are : "% s"
14:12 nahuel and not %s
14:12 nahuel or :
14:12 nahuel "something % "
14:12 nahuel "s"
14:12 atz_ ah, that should be easy enough to fix, i think
14:13 atz_ but these files are the ones that are generated?
14:13 atz_ so it might be harder to fix the generator :\
14:13 nahuel no, it's the git po files
14:13 nahuel the "original" strings are good
14:13 nahuel but not the translated strings
14:19 atz_ nahuel: is this likely related to the webinstaller failure for es reported on the list?
14:20 nahuel probably
14:21 nahuel but the errors are on catalogue/details.tmpl
15:45 nahuel someone can say me what is "priority = 0" in reserves ?
15:45 nahuel why it's excluded in "" ?
15:50 atz nahuel: i think priority zero is for items that are reserved, and have been retrieved from the stacks... so that item is "waiting" to be picked up
15:50 atz the comments in C4::Reserves should describe that explicitly
15:50 nahuel well, in this case, the item is waiting to be transfered from another branch
15:51 atz yes, the priority would be the same
15:51 nahuel I already read the comments, but don't find anything interesting for the definition of priority
15:51 atz  - priority >0      : then the reserve is at 1st stage, and not yet affected to any item.
15:51 atz             =0      : then the reserve is being dealed
15:52 atz not the clearest description
15:52 atz but basically priority zero means the hold is "paired"
15:52 nahuel ok
15:52 atz i.e., no other item should be targeted by the hold
15:53 nahuel the sql request in pendingreserves should be rewrite ;)
15:53 nahuel it's not really readable for someone who come in the code
15:53 nahuel sql should not generate xhtml ;)
15:55 atz yeah, holds is one of the biggest weird points in the code, because so many ideas collide there
18:30 chris nahuel: u about?
18:35 chris the greek .po file had the same issues, i fixed that last night, i'll fix the ES one today

19:41 acmoore chris: thanks to Catalyst for supporting Sam Villain while he worked on the migration of perl from perforce to git. I guess he was able to do some of that "on the clock" because of Catalyst's generousity. That's good to see.

19:42 chris yep sure is
