03:18 Amit hi brendan, mason, chris
03:18 SelfishMan Is it still true that zebra performs best if QueryRemoveStopwords is disabled?
03:22 Amit hi selfishman
03:22 SelfishMan hi Amit
03:22 SelfishMan Ugh...scrollback issues
03:23 Amit i think it is better work zebra if queryremoved stopwords is disabled
03:23 Amit if a word is added/removed from the stop word list, nothing will have to be rebuilded
03:24 SelfishMan That's what I'm seeing in the docs but I can't confirm it either way
03:29 Amit selfish: i think The zebra search engine works much better if you leave your stop words preference off
03:30 SelfishMan Amit: Thanks.  That's what I keep telling the users but the director keeps turning it on thinking it will help.
03:30 mason heya amit, selfish

03:33 Amit k
03:35 SelfishMan There is a line in at[…]meters/stop-words that clearly says zebra will perform better if QueryRemoveStopwords is off

08:06 SelfishMan I'm about to deploy koha at two more libraries in the state and three more have a few questions before they will consider migration
08:07 chris google translate and mc tell me it says that san ouest provence are helping to install koha in a network of libraries in senegal
08:07 paul_p chris & kf : someone from Dakar univerisites came to SAN-OP last week, to see Koha

08:07 paul_p they have decided to adopt Koha.
08:07 chris SelfishMan: also good news :)
08:08 paul_p now, financial & organisation details have to be organised !
08:08 chris *nod*
08:08 paul_p their initial wishes were to be live on aug, 2009. But they understand now that it's impossible.
08:08 paul_p so that will be for aug, 2010
08:08 paul_p (closed month)
08:09 chris how many libraries in total?
08:09 SelfishMan On the flip side, I've been processing a bunch of ISBNs and completely forgot that an ISBN10 can end in 'X'
08:09 paul_p 350k items, X branches, 40 librarians, 6000 student coming each day ...
08:09 paul_p the Dakar university is the DNS registrar for .sn, and they are 100% optic fiber.
08:10 paul_p counterside : the library don't have enven a penny allocated to the Koha project. They have to take money from their yearly budget :(
08:10 chris yeah you'd want to get that right :)
08:11 chris unfortunately thats all too often the case
