09:05 chris *nod*
09:06 braedon|home been tempted to reply to clarify the "fork" issue, but probably best to leave it alone i think
09:07 chris yeah, not wanting to call it a fork, doesnt make it not a fork :)
09:08 chris but i do feel that sean is listening and thats great

11:52 jbglaw Have you ever heared of Manx?
11:53 jbglaw
11:53 jbglaw It's a (these days abandoned) web site for searching preserved old technical documentation.
11:54 jbglaw It probably started as a search engine for scanned DEC documentation (like manuals for PDP/8, PDP/11, VAX, VT100 terminals etc.)
11:55 jbglaw So Manx is like a very small ILS, knowing about titles, years, vendors, manual's part numbers, etc. That could easily be done with Koha, too.
11:55 jbglaw If available online somewhere, there are also links to the PDF files.
11:56 jbglaw A probably not-so-easy task is, that Manx also has built-in capabilities to enter (and thus: search) a manually typed table of contents of the PDFs.
11:57 jbglaw Are there ideas (or maybe even common practices) to enter structured data like TOCs (or even OCRed scanned manual pages) into Koha?

19:13 chris_n @later tell mle �nounScandinavian Mythology. one of the two ravens of Odin that brought him news from the whole world.
19:13 munin chris_n: The operation succeeded.
19:15 chris_n @later tell mle actually probably more directly related to the etymology of the word: mun = remember in = def article thus 'the rememberer'
19:15 munin chris_n: The operation succeeded.

22:44 genji joined #koha
22:46 genji hiya all. wow.. first time ive ever been asked to pay for source code I was interested in having a look at. A modue for processing arabic prefixes and suffixes for koha nozebra 3.0.... the author is selling it as an option for customers who need it.. Gah. so close...
22:47 jo Koha source code?
22:47 jo you are kidding surely
22:47 jo can they do that?
22:48 chris yep
22:48 larsw if it is gpl2 licensed, yes, but they can't prevent anyone from distributing it further
22:48 chris exactly
22:48 robin jo: yeah, you can legitimatelly sell GPL code, but you can't stop it being passed on\
22:48 robin oh
22:48 jo in terms of the name and shame them then
22:48 robin too slow
22:48 chris naw its fine to get money for the work you do
22:48 chris nothing wrong with that
22:48 larsw it is rarely a sustainable business model, though
22:49 chris if they were trying to restrict what others did with it, then it would be name and shame
22:49 robin It's a necessary requirement to allow people to, say, sell CDs.
22:49 chris genji: ask one of hte customers for it
22:49 genji its someone obscure.
22:50 genji with no website, no advertising.
22:50 genji except for a few posts on koha lists.
22:50 genji Which he kinda advertised his module, without anyone realising it.
22:51 genji <
22:51 genji[…]tober/020748.html
22:52 chris yeah thats fine
22:52 chris its not what id do, but the license allows it
