00:49 braedon|work gmcharlt: just after you left before:
00:49 braedon|work "if people want it, perhaps we could create a koha project/team on launchpad, and copy them to a more official PPA there?"
00:49 braedon|work thoughts? (since you are handling the dependencies bug)
00:50 gmcharlt braedon|work: sounds good as long as we don't accidently split the Koha bugs database by enabling bug reporting on the launchpad project
00:51 gmcharlt (at least, absent some community desire to move away from bugzilla)
00:52 braedon|work gmcharlt: ok, i will look into it
00:52 braedon|work really need to get a few more people testing what i have build so far first
00:52 * gmcharlt suggests that you put out a call for testers on koha-devel
00:54 braedon|work or someone who actually knows what they are doing with debian package building - that would be great. I am just using the default package build by dh-make-perl
00:54 braedon|work hmm, koha-devel - there is a thought
00:54 braedon|work i shall do that
00:55 gmcharlt Vincent Danjean has made a go of working on Debian packaging for Koha every now and again, and I think he takes requests to help package Perl modules
00:56 gmcharlt slef is active in Debian as well; I think he's a DD
01:04 braedon|work ok, thanks
01:05 braedon|work is he likely to respond to a general request on koha-devel? or will i have to get in touch with him directly?
01:05 gmcharlt slef? he'll likely respond if he has time, but doesn't hurt to ask him directly
01:06 braedon|work sorry, Vincent Danjean
01:14 gmcharlt he might notice, but you're more likely to get his attention by contacting him directly

03:26 Amit hi all
03:27 ebegin chris, around?
03:28 ebegin Hi Amit!
03:31 ebegin Is there a way to get other languages from git?
03:43 brendan joined #koha
03:43 gmcharlt ebegin: chris sends a pull request for languages every now and again, but the best way to get the most recent po is from Pootle
03:44 ebegin ok, but where we can find the translation for the installer?
03:47 angie hello there!
03:48 ebegin Hi angie!
03:49 angie any suggestion for accessing ebooks directly from koha opac? I'm coordinating a project for a public library in Eritrea and we are searching for the best solution to give access to books in pdf and to catalog them
03:50 angie hi ebegin!
03:51 ebegin do you have to manage the DRM?
03:51 chris put them on a webserver somewhere, then catalogue them in koha, and add a link to where they live in the 856u tag
03:51 chris (you could put them in a digital library system even, and link to their url in there)
03:51 angie no drm issues
03:52 angie hi chris! what digital library system would you suggest?
03:52 ebegin ok.  So the 856$u field is the place to put your URL to the PDFs as mentionned chris
03:53 chris angie: not sure, one that has persistent urls though :)
03:53 chris people seem to like dspace
03:53 chris
03:53 chris is another option
03:54 angie thank you very much
03:54 angie any experience with integrating koha with vufind?
03:54 chris not me
03:56 angie thank you very much Chris
03:57 angie and thank you ebegin
03:57 angie bye
03:58 ebegin bye
04:01 ebegin chris, are the .po file push on git everyday?
04:01 ebegin s/push/pushed
04:01 chris nope
04:01 chris i push the 3.0.x ones every so often to
04:01 angie left #koha
04:01 chris but galen needs to pull from my translation branch for the 3.2 ones
04:02 chris its best to download them from
04:03 chris i push to my backup repo, but not to (except for 3.0.x)
04:03 * chris has to go catch his bus, back in a bit
04:04 ebegin ok, thanks
04:06 ebegin It seems to have some junk info that was filled in the fr-CA translation.  Anybody got this problem with other languages?
04:12 chris_n g'night
04:12 hdl_laptop ebegin: there is a test file for system preferences in xt
04:13 hdl_laptop (errr in fact two.
04:13 hdl_laptop One to check against the database, an other one to test against the sql files)
04:14 ebegin hdl_laptop, in xt?
04:14 hdl_laptop xt directory
04:14 hdl_laptop it is a test => .t file
04:15 ebegin oh, i see.  I'll check that

10:32 Ropuch
10:33 Ropuch Go with current stable
10:33 CGI867 Hm
10:33 Ropuch You can upgfrade, but you can sudo rm -fr /usr/share/koha

10:33 Ropuch And to clean install
10:33 Ropuch CGI867: yes, latest stable is 3.00.05

10:34 Ropuch Community don't have acces to due to LibLime policy, so we can't update it
10:34 Ropuch CGI867:
10:34 Ropuch I've wrote step-by-step koha installing manual
10:35 Ropuch It;s in polish, but maybe google translate will do
10:35 CGI867 what is it?
10:35 Ropuch It's actually all about pasting the content of dashed boxes ;>
10:36 CGI867 Im not getting yet?
10:36 Ropuch Sorry?
10:36 CGI867 Im not understanding ur point
10:36 Ropuch I've wrote step-by-step tutorial of how to get Koha & zebra up & runnig
10:37 bigbrovar left #koha
10:37 Ropuch All I'm saying is that maybe - if google translate can do the job - you may find it useful

13:07 chris_n g'morning
13:08 chris_n gmcharlt: should we not consider changing the engine for sessions and zebraqueue to MyISAM in kohastructure.sql?
13:08 gmcharlt chris_n: no reason why not to consider it, or at least write a README
13:09 gmcharlt there are a couple other things to do - there's a pending bug for CGI::Session to make it possible to pass the expiration time to the session storage that could use a little love
13:09 gmcharlt as would helping to finish the memached driver for CGI::Session
13:10 gmcharlt if you've got the RAM for it, using the memory storage engine for the sessions table would be another option
13:11 chris_n still, it seems that if there is no benefit from running it InnoDB, and it is easier to reclaim diskspace using MyISAM, the change would be worth making even with those other improvements
13:12 * chris_n would love to load the entire thing into RAM and run from there :)
13:12 chris_n think solid state HDD

13:19 hilongo hello everyone :)

13:22 collum joined #koha
13:38 hilongo I'va seen some references of an 'ICU' method for creating the zebra index in Koha that might help searching words with diacritics... is it something that can be used with 3.0.x or is something for 3.2??
13:40 kf I think it would work with 3.0.x too, you should perhaps ask hdl about it
13:40 kf we use icu indexing with 3.01.61, but I can not explain how to set it up
13:41 hilongo hdl is Henri-Damien Laurent?
13:42 kf yes
13:42 hilongo ok ... I'll send him an email.. :)
13:43 hilongo by the way ... how is it working? ... the icu indexing...
13:48 tomascohen hi every1, does anyone know what is the status of mod_perl support in koha?
13:49 tomascohen what I mean is if there's a list of bugs that should be squashed or somethingç
13:51 gmcharlt tomascohen: for mod_perl support specifically, you mean?
13:51 gmcharlt or bugs in genearl?
13:51 tomascohen for mod_perl support
13:52 tomascohen I see several errors in the logs when using mod_perl
13:52 tomascohen and want to know if there is a known list of bugs regarding mod_perl support in koha
13:53 gmcharlt tomascohen: are you using Apache::PerlRun or Apache::Registry ?
13:53 tomascohen just followed the instructions in the wiki
13:53 tomascohen ModPerl::Registry I guess
13:54 gmcharlt ? that's a bit out of date
13:55 tomascohen exactly
13:55 tomascohen which one should I use?
13:55 gmcharlt Apache::PerlRun will work better for now - less of a performance boost, but doesn't require modifying the code
13:56 gmcharlt converting CGI scripts to work under Apache::Registry takes more work, which hasn't been done yet, although it's planned for 3.4
13:56 tomascohen Ok, I need to install it from CPAN and set it as the PerlResponseHandler?
13:58 gmcharlt ModPerl::PerlRunPrefork
13:58 gmcharlt it looks like - since you have mod_perl already installed, you probably don't need to get ot CPAN to get that module
13:59 tomascohen I have it from hardy repos
13:59 tomascohen thanks gmcharlt
14:00 gmcharlt please let me know how it works
14:00 gmcharlt how *well* it works, that is
14:03 gmcharlt nahuel: ebegin: need a French translation, please
14:04 gmcharlt "Enable circulation sounds during checkin and checkout in the staff interface.  Not supported by all web browsers yet."
14:04 nahuel "Activer les évenement sonores de circulation pendant le prêt et le retour dans l'intranet. N'est pas encore supporté par tous les navigateurs web"
14:06 ebegin agree
14:06 gmcharlt thanks - any diacritics in that?
14:10 ebegin oups, one typo: "Activer les événements sonores de circulation pendant le prêt et le retour dans l'intranet. N'est pas encore supporté par tous les navigateurs web"  'événements' instead of 'évenement'
14:10 ebegin yes, there is diacritics
14:10 gmcharlt ebegin: could you pastebin that, then
14:11 ebegin there you go:
14:11 gmcharlt thanks!

14:25 owen Present!
14:25 chris_n and a related one: http://roomfordebate.blogs.nyt[…]aries-need-books/
14:25 jwagner Yet Another jquery -- in the OPAC patron messaging options, can I remove one line from the table?  It doesn't have an ID that I can see.  I want to get rid of the Upcoming Events line.
14:25 tajoli joined #koha
14:26 jwagner It's just a <td> line
14:27 owen jwagner: Do you know if it is consistently the second row?
14:28 jwagner I think so, in this code level anyway.
14:30 owen $("#opac-messaging table tr:eq(2)").hide();
14:31 jwagner YES!
14:31 jwagner Thanks!
14:31 jwagner owen++ # that makes 16 local customizations done through jquery on this site, instead of modifying the templates!
14:32 owen Looking at 3.2, is "upcoming events" even working? Should it be in the template at all?
14:32 jwagner I don't think it works at all at this level, dunno why it's in there.
14:32 biglego left #koha
14:33 gmcharlt owen: it's a hook for integrating with a calendaring app, but AFAIK it's not actually used anywhere

14:36 gmcharlt but that syspref doesn't do anything
14:36 gmcharlt is there actually code implemeting it?
14:37 nahuel gmcharlt, ask to Kivutar, he made the code
14:37 gmcharlt Kivutar: ^^ :)
14:37 Kivutar gmcharlt: lets see
14:39 Kivutar it looks like this patch has been lost
14:39 Kivutar i wrote code using this syspref
14:39 Kivutar we should ask hdl about it
14:41 Kivutar yes, we have it on one of our branches
14:41 gmcharlt please submit it, then - I'm not going to push a new syspref that isn't implemented
14:42 Kivutar sure :)
14:42 Kivutar I mail hdl about it
14:42 chris_n is down?
14:43 wizzyrea chris_n: doesn't look like it from here, at least not the gitweb
14:43 * chris_n restarts FF.... again :-P
14:44 chris_n hmm.... must have been a FF problem; works fine now
14:44 wizzyrea FF has gone stupid on me like that a few times

14:48 wizzyrea ok, I'm looking at the 3.2 alpha and I'm having trouble with the local hold functionality
14:48 wizzyrea well, holds in general
14:49 wizzyrea actually... let me check something I just had a brainwave
14:50 gmcharlt wizzyrea: :( I know some folks have been playing around with holds testing as well; fixing any regressions in the holds functionality (and regressions in general) will be a priority for general release
14:50 wizzyrea you know what
14:50 wizzyrea I think I found at least 50% of my problem just now
14:50 wizzyrea attention to sysprefs ftl
14:50 wizzyrea ;)
14:51 wizzyrea but that is excellent... we are doing a big test run on 3.2 tomorrow, put any bugs we find in bugzilla?
14:51 wizzyrea test run of holds, I should say
14:52 wizzyrea stuipd allowonshelfholds
14:52 wizzyrea sigh
14:53 wizzyrea I spent an hour mucking about with holds yesterday
14:53 wizzyrea and fixed it in my first 5 minutes back today

15:11 ebegin Anybody had problem importing marc file within the Stage MARC Records for import?  I do have a MARC file that do not want to be imported.  When pressing Stage for import, nothing happens.
15:12 ebegin It is a very standard marc file
15:12 * jdavidb lurks in a corner, twitching; just did a "git merge master" on a haphazardly-modified branch.

15:13 munin moodaepo: The current temperature in Mankato, Minnesota is -16.0�C (8:55 AM CST on February 18, 2010). Conditions: Clear. Humidity: 85%. Dew Point: -18.0�C. Windchill: -21.0�C. Pressure: 30.16 in 1021 hPa (Falling).
15:13 jdavidb Brr!
15:14 schuster ebegin - 3.2 or 3.0.x?
15:14 ebegin 3.0.x
15:14 ebegin 3.0.4 to be more precise
15:15 schuster I import on a regular basis without problems.  I have had problems where there was a bad MARC record/character in the file so it wouldn't load.  I'd run it through MarcEdit, correct or remove the corrupt record and it would load fine.
15:15 moodaepo left #koha
15:18 ebegin I usualy don't have problem either... I'll check for corruption.
15:20 owen schuster: How do you identify the problem in MarcEdit?
15:26 wizzyrea does anyone have insight on the sound cues? Do they "just work"
15:26 wizzyrea ?
15:27 schuster First off if it opens at all in MARC edit.  If it does open there is a MARCValidator tool.  If it doesn't work generally I've had to break the file into seperate pieces to isolate the specific record that is having problems using the MARC breaker tool in MarcEdit.
15:27 schuster wizzyrea - did that "enhancement" get pushed up?  I didn't think it had made it to head yet.
15:27 wizzyrea I got the .ogg files this morning
15:27 wizzyrea was just about to test it
15:27 wizzyrea or, see if anything happened
15:28 wizzyrea it's not a syspref that needs to be turned on, right?
15:28 wizzyrea never mind, yes, there is a pref "soundon"
15:28 wizzyrea which needs to be enabled
15:28 wizzyrea reading ftw
15:28 schuster Oh cool...  I will need to investigate that!
15:32 owen The ogg file should work in Firefox or Chrome:[…]o-in-the-browser/
15:32 owen We need to add an mp3 for fallback
15:32 gmcharlt and it can be made to work in Safari upon installation of QuickTime, I believe
15:32 owen Hey, it works.
15:33 owen I hate the sound clip though :( What is that, a banjo?
15:34 owen We should have a nationwide contest to design the perfect beep.
15:34 rhcl joined #koha
15:35 owen The "good" sound is better.
15:35 * chris_n wonders why his installation of mysql insists on creating tables as MyISAM inspite of being told otherwise
15:35 chris_n grrrr
15:40 wajasu left #koha
15:40 owen Next thing we'll need is a system preference for defining custom sound files, since every library is going to want their own.
15:41 owen I want mine to play the A-Team theme song upon each successful checkout.
15:43 schuster I had a sound file with our old ILS that was my voice that said "good"  when it was good, and "check the screen" when it was bad.  Kids always were looking around for that non existant voice.
15:44 owen How about "Well done!" and "Uh-oh!"
15:45 owen Or for the teens, "Whatever." and <sarcastically>"Nice."
15:46 wizzyrea lol owen
15:46 wizzyrea sound_cues++
15:46 wizzyrea but owen's right, it could stand to be more configurable
15:46 wizzyrea like, beep only on errors
15:47 gmcharlt send a patch :)
15:47 wizzyrea well I was thinking that it got in at all was super great
15:47 wizzyrea >.>
15:47 wizzyrea the rest is just gravy
15:47 owen Mmmm... gravy.
15:47 Colin Could this be a new category of emmy 'Best error beep'
15:48 wizzyrea grammys probably
15:48 wizzyrea ^.^
15:48 gmcharlt how about an aural translation system to go with :)
15:49 wizzyrea more seriously, my peeps here are getting pretty excited about 3.2
15:49 wizzyrea lol... I wonder if dragonspeech could do that :P
15:49 wizzyrea run the whole opac through your iphone

15:51 gmcharlt jwagner: around?
15:52 jwagner Yes
15:54 paul_p question to english speaking ppl... in public libraries, the term "authority" sound strange to most readers (at least in french). So I'm on the way to replace it. But which term would be the best ?
15:54 paul_p (hello everybody)
15:55 paul_p does "indexes" sound better ?
15:55 gmcharlt paul_p: authority referening to authority record?
15:55 paul_p like "browse indexes"
15:55 paul_p gmcharlt: yep
15:55 sekjal joined #koha
15:55 jwagner No, I think indexes is the wrong term for this.
15:55 paul_p autorité (french term) is just related to the boss ;-)
15:55 gmcharlt paul_p: "browse" or "browse names" or "browse subjects"
15:55 paul_p gmcharlt: except the link is for both names & subjects :(
15:56 paul_p "browse lists" ?
15:56 jdavidb "official terms?"
15:56 Colin browse headings
15:56 gmcharlt "browse headings" is more precise, but not sure how many patrons have a clear notion of what a heading is
15:56 wizzyrea erg, headings is libraryspeak... this is for the staff or opac side?
15:56 paul_p it's for OPAC !
15:56 schuster term search
15:57 schuster concept search
15:57 paul_p that's my problem : find a term mumy or boy can understand ;-)
15:57 schuster "about" search
15:57 paul_p schuster: ???
15:57 wizzyrea Meta Search, but nobody would know what that means
15:57 gmcharlt "about search" doesn't work so well for describing a name headings browse
15:58 jwagner Was just looking at a Unicorn site -- it uses Browse by author, title, subject
15:58 schuster If you wanted to know information "about someone" it works
15:58 wizzyrea yea, you can't get much clearer than that really
15:58 wizzyrea is this a link that can't be spatially long?
15:58 paul_p wizzyrea: you mean jwagner proposal ?
15:58 wizzyrea yea
15:59 paul_p the link can be that long I think (and we can safely remove "title", just to have "browse by author or subjects"
15:59 gmcharlt +1 # jwagner
16:00 jwagner Also uses  Catalog Lookup by Cross Reference
16:00 paul_p wow, too complex I'm afraid
16:00 wizzyrea I"m for Browse by author, title, subject
16:01 wizzyrea patrons wouldn't know what an authority search is anyway, so it's good we are having this discussion
16:01 schuster what actually are you "browsing" - is it subjects or ???  depends doesn't it?  and are the authority searches working now with 3.2?
16:02 schuster Is it keyword, or actually a list?
16:02 paul_p schuster: it is the authority list, definetly
16:03 paul_p and if you don't use Koha authorities, then this link is useless for the library
16:03 schuster So titles are not included - so stick to Author, subject browse
16:03 schuster My authorities in 3.0x have never worked right.
16:04 paul_p schuster: right (except it uniform titles are stored, but what is an uniform title is totally impossible to understand for any human being ;-) )
16:04 paul_p ( at least any non librarian :D )

16:55 chris_n owen: did you start at 9.04 and then upgrade?
16:55 Colin The version on the CD is innodb-free can you possibly update from elsewhere?

17:05 Colin I think so you aldo need mysql 5.1.33 or greater
17:05 chris_n this is 5.1.37

17:24 wizzyrea_laptop oh wowie there are more patches lol
17:25 owen nengard_: Looks like it happened in December: "Matthias Meusburger 2009-12-03 11:58:44"
17:26 nengard_ wait - but weren't we asking for it just yesterday?
17:27 owen That's a difference between LEK and HEAD
17:27 nengard_ anyway - I have a request that I'll submit to bugzilla - that we have a preference (yes yes I know - too many preferences) to turn this on or off - cause I'm looking at a list right now where 1 bib has 15 items and they're all showing making the list longer than i really intended
17:28 nengard_ owen - yeah - that I know - but I don't remember seeing this implemented when I did the lists documentation
17:29 owen nengard_: If it looked like it does on the search results page would that be better? Or perhaps have the display controlled by the OPACItemsResultsDisplay pref?

20:00 chris it may be like gmcharlt says, the system breaks if they are translated .. those ones need a bigger fix, or it might be they just got missed
20:01 wizzyrea_laptop owen! brilliant! thank you for reporting that one with all the details, we've been seeing that too
20:01 wizzyrea_laptop but we have too many variables to narrow it down
20:01 wizzyrea_laptop not to mention a lack of DB level access

20:01 cait I do
20:02 chris ok, i should be able to get them back without to much difficulty then
20:06 cait gmcharlt is right, there were buttons in serials that broke when translated and one that kept me from changing message preferences.
20:06 cait I think the one in serials is fixed now
20:06 chris right, those are bigger fixes, the script needs to be made to depend on a hidden input rather than the submit button

20:16 owen Bring painkillers.
20:16 wizzyrea_laptop iknorite
20:17 owen right now I'm trying to figure out if items are remaining on the holds queue list because there are still items available to fulfill the hold
20:17 wizzyrea_laptop of course we have this one giant variable in our system: the selfchecks
20:18 * ebegin is looking for a SQL request to get the X borrower with the higher number of issues (current and past)...
20:21 ebegin ... and i'm stuck with an Every derived table must have its own alias because of my UNION
20:24 * ebegin is now unstuck :)
20:25 wizzyrea_laptop owen: obvious question, this is after regenerating the queue, right?
20:26 owen wizzyrea_laptop: That's what I fear
20:26 wizzyrea_laptop hrm.
20:28 owen Wow "GetItemsAvailableToFillHoldRequestsForBib" is a real mouthful :)

20:32 chris cait:
20:32 chris i dunno if it's any better
20:33 moodaepo brendan: Hey! I was thinking my connection was crapped so relogged into it's been quiet today : )
20:34 owen gmcharlt still around?
20:34 moodaepo or maybe the relogin did help?
20:34 gmcharlt owen: what's up?
20:34 owen gmcharlt:[…]1d3ff4d754c14904b
20:34 owen I'm looking at the subquery you added in that commit
20:34 brendan been busy on #koha channel
20:35 cait 8675 words need attention
20:35 cait wow
20:35 owen gmcharlt: I'm not sure if I'm understanding it all correctly, but I'm concerned that this isn't working right
20:36 owen gmcharlt: selecting itemnumbers where itemnumber IS NOT NULL AND (found IS NOT NULL OR priority = 0) is going to exclude items which have been allocated for holds but not made waiting
20:37 wizzyrea_laptop owen! Yes! this is one of our major bugs I think...
20:37 wizzyrea_laptop that LL was supposed to fix in sept!
20:37 owen When I check in a hold and confirm it, the itemnumber is added to the line in the reserve table but "found" is still NULL
20:38 gmcharlt hmm - at that point found should be set to 'W'
20:38 owen Not before the item has been checked in and confirmed at its destination branch
20:39 owen (sorry--need to specify that this is a hold at another branch)
20:39 cait chris: cant find my examples in po
20:39 wizzyrea_laptop owen, like this
20:39 wizzyrea_laptop[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3595
20:39 wizzyrea_laptop ?
20:39 munin Bug 3595: normal, P5, ---,, NEW, Items seen at checkin should always go to 1st priority hold
20:39 chris cait: guess not then :(
20:39 gmcharlt ah - gotcha
20:39 chris ill have to look into over the weekend
20:39 owen I don't know wizzyrea_laptop, I was trying to figure out whether items which have already been allocated for a hold are showing up on the hold queue
20:39 gmcharlt subquery would then either have to include a join on branchtransfers
20:40 gmcharlt or perhaps define a new value for found : 'T'
20:40 gmcharlt meaning that hte item is allocated for a hold but is in transit
20:40 wizzyrea_laptop I think this might be another side effect
20:40 cait tell me when I can help you with something
20:40 wizzyrea_laptop of what you are describing
20:40 wizzyrea_laptop gmcharlt: we have a bug to add that as well
20:41 gmcharlt the reason why itemnumber not null is not sufficient is the case of item-level hold requests
20:41 owen Right, I was just figuring that out
20:41 Sharon joined #koha
20:41 owen I always thought there was an interim value for "found" between NULL and W, I guess I was wrong.
20:42 wizzyrea_laptop bug 3344
20:42 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3344 enhancement, P5, ---,, NEW, Hold priority list needs additional status for items assigned but not waiting
20:42 gmcharlt owen: there was, kinda sorta, but that fell apart with item-level requests
20:43 Sharon I'm a color person - in the OPAC, in transit items are red, available are green.  The problem is that items waiting on a holds shelf are green - show as available.  CAn these be 'orange' or 'yellow'?
20:43 owen Sharon:[…]w_bug.cgi?id=2655
20:43 munin Bug 2655: major, P2, ---,, REOPENED, Items waiting on the hold shelf display as "Available" in OPAC
20:43 Sharon Also, with the holds priority list, in transit items show up at the top of the holds priority list in a funky order.  Can they be pulled and put down at the bottom of the list with a status of 'in transit' similar to the 'waiting' items?
20:44 owen Sharon I think that makes sense. Is that what bug 3344 is talking about?
20:45 Sharon owen should I add a comment about my color preference for 2655? ;-)
20:45 Sharon yep, that's the other concern.
20:45 Sharon good, they're both just to get fixes! :-)
20:45 jwagner And just in case it feeds into the whole problem/ solution, see Bug 3792
20:45 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3792 normal, P3, ---,, NEW, Checking out on-hold item to someone else replaces item-level hold with next available
20:46 wizzyrea_laptop (we try really hard not to do item level holds @ nekls)
20:47 owen Sharon: are the color issues you're talking about on the search results page or the detail page?
20:47 SJeffery Is there a way to check what development work is being done on the Z39 record-importation functions?
20:47 Sharon Unfortunately the Local Holds item type creates/behaves like an item-level hold
20:47 Sharon causing item-level hold confusion and odd behavior
20:48 Sharon owen search results page, where the green available notes and red (3 in transit) notes show up
20:48 Sharon available should mean a patron can go to the shelf and pull the book.
20:49 Sharon red means it's in transit
20:49 Sharon yellow means it's not checked out, but most likely will be unless the hold is canceled
20:50 jwagner left #koha
20:50 owen Yeah that's definitely Bug 2655. I'd make that a blocker for 3.2 if I was in charge.
20:50 munin Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=2655 major, P2, ---,, REOPENED, Items waiting on the hold shelf display as "Available" in OPAC
20:50 Sharon or combine on hold and in transit as "unavailable" and put a count next to the results
20:51 Sharon owen that bug has bothered us from the beginning
20:51 gmcharlt owen: your wish is my command
20:51 wizzyrea_laptop and LL said they would fix it
20:51 wizzyrea_laptop we've harped on it forever with them
20:51 * gmcharlt looks at the CC list for that bug and goes "meep!"
20:51 owen I would do that: no need to break out "in transit" and "on hold" if the upshot is that the patron can't find it on the shelf.
20:51 owen :D
20:51 nengard_ left #koha
20:52 * owen is tempted to find a LEK customer and ask them if it's fixed for them
20:52 gmcharlt Sharon: yes, please add your notes on color preferences to 2655
20:52 wizzyrea_laptop the demo on LL site wouldn't have that data?
20:53 wizzyrea_laptop it's LEK iir
20:53 wizzyrea_laptop iirc
20:53 owen Is the LibLime demo now running LEK?
20:53 wizzyrea_laptop i believe so
20:54 Sharon will do
20:54 Sharon never mind, I like the idea of having just red and green
20:54 owen So gmcharlt you agree that it looks like there is a bug in that section of
20:55 Sharon green means on shelf, red means not available physically
20:55 gmcharlt owen: yes - please file a bug for that or point me to the bug number
20:55 owen Okay, thanks, I'll file a bug
20:55 gmcharlt thinking about it a bit more, I think defining a found status of 'T' is the way to go
20:56 * wizzyrea_laptop hopes that she's right and that a lot of stuff hangs on that
20:56 gmcharlt but there are ~15 place that I'll need to check
20:56 wizzyrea_laptop gmcharlt: you need a reserves apprentice
20:59 chris and then you can yell you're fired at them
20:59 wizzyrea_laptop O.O
20:59 wizzyrea_laptop question about cloning rules in sysprefs
20:59 wizzyrea_laptop only the top table clones? not the rest of them
20:59 wizzyrea_laptop ?
21:00 wizzyrea_laptop is that a feature or a bug
21:00 wizzyrea_laptop er, cloning rules in system administration, I mean
21:00 owen
21:00 chris cait:
21:01 wizzyrea_laptop yep
21:01 cait chris: cool!
21:01 chris fredericd did all the hardwork
21:01 cait chris: I m working on translation of installer sql files too, will translate everything you throw in my direction ;)
21:01 owen wizzyrea_laptop: Yes, it only clones the rules in that one table
21:01 chris :)
21:02 wizzyrea_laptop good, ok, it's not just us. So, is that intentional or just incomplete?
21:02 owen I think that when the cloning process was written there may not have been other tables?
21:03 owen So I guess incomplete now that rules are more complex and varied.
21:04 wizzyrea_laptop well... it's new since our production server, and we have the smart rules
21:05 wizzyrea_laptop so I will file it as an enhancement bug, since it's merely annoying that you can't clone the other rules
21:06 chris_n wizzyrea_laptop: do you also find it annoying to have to re-enter all fields to change an existing rule?
21:07 wizzyrea_laptop yes, I do, actually
21:07 wizzyrea_laptop :)
21:07 wizzyrea_laptop but we don't change rules all that often, so it's not SUPER annoying
21:07 wizzyrea_laptop just a little annoying.
21:07 * chris_n was thinking those could be text fields in the table and just pre-populate with rule data
21:07 chris_n then have an update button to round it off
21:08 cait chris_n: it is annoying, an update button would be a great enhancement
21:09 chris_n hdl has some further enhancements to the smart rules which I think he is trying to finish up
21:09 collum left #koha
21:09 chris_n so maybe that one should be put on the list for 3.4
21:09 cait just wanted to say that :) Ergonomics of  smart-rules and circulation parameters (rfc for 3.2

22:55 sekjal I'm not sure "large" is the best adjective to market a Koha vendor
