06:38 eythian_ rangi: think I can arrange to have the aircon turned up at work for when I arrive? I think I'll freeze otherwise.
06:38 rangi heh
06:38 rangi you acclimatised now?
06:39 eythian_ yeah :/
06:39 eythian_ turning the AC off because it's too cold when it's set to 25...
06:41 rangi wont take long to switch back id imagine
06:42 eythian_ probably not, no. Also, the weekend in Nelson will be a nice in-between.
06:42 rangi yep

07:02 eythian_ I am never complaining about the cost of internet in NZ again - here it's NZ$50 for 7days/250MB
07:02 * eythian_ just ran out of his first quota
07:05 rangi youch
07:05 rangi yeah, we certainly arent the worst in the world
07:08 rangi right i now have a branch that tracks master, but is running template::toolkit, so im mirroring the changes to master and there
07:08 rangi[…]/new/enh/bug_5917
07:08 rangi i need to get people testing it
07:08 eythian_ I made the mistake of demoing installing the koha packages by removing them from my system and reinstalling them. Forgetting they'd take about an hour to download here.
07:09 rangi ack
07:09 rangi things to remember for next time
07:09 rangi timor etc
07:10 rangi take a usb stick with the git repo checked out on it
07:10 rangi plus a bunch of packages :)
07:10 rangi hmm i wonder if we could make a bootable usb stick, with the git repo and pbuilder on it
07:11 rangi fetch a few git changes is much less bandwidth
07:12 miguelxercode joined #koha
07:12 eythian_ not a silly idea
07:13 eythian_ shouldn't be too hard, I already carry a bootable usb stick with Ubuntu NBR on it.
07:13 rangi *nod*
07:15 rangi farasat was asking about the livecd again, we need to somehow find time to do that too
07:16 eythian_ really do, yeah
07:16 rangi i wonder if we can get some sponsorship for work like that packaging etc
07:16 rangi like i got for release management
07:16 eythian_ that'd be good
07:18 eythian_ oh, SICHE is keen on something to archive digital records: turns out that being a developing country, they have free access to download a certain amount of things from places like proquest, so they want to make the best use of it while they can.
07:18 eythian_ so if you have any ideas on that front...
07:18 eythian_ I also mentioned the thing about integrating digital archiving stuff into Koha, but with the proviso it won't be in the near future.
07:18 rangi yeah
07:19 rangi anything that gives you a persistent url
07:19 rangi you can then catalogue in koha
07:19 rangi so have a unified search
07:19 eythian_ that's what I said, although I think they want to archive it locally. The ideal would be something that can host stuff and (semi-)automatically import the record into Koha with the correct URL
07:19 rangi so dspace, fedora, kete etc
07:20 rangi with a bit of work, so that the last bit of the submit redirects you to the cataloguing page in koha, with 856u prefilled
07:21 rangi somethign like that
07:22 eythian_ yeah, or loads records into the staging area perhaps.
07:22 rangi yep
07:23 rangi itd mostly need work at the digital library end
07:24 rangi not koha
07:24 eythian_ yeah, exporting something that can be transmogrified into a MARC record easily, and a bit of glue to put it into Koha
07:24 rangi yep
07:24 rangi dublin core would work
07:24 rangi theres a crosswalk to convert from it to marc21
07:24 rangi at least
07:25 eythian_ that'd be alright. And nicer to work with than MARC.
07:26 eythian_ (well, I'd hope)
07:27 rangi yeah

16:30 jcamins @later tell rangi Commit ddbedbfc2f17bff016736afb5beae39a768a298a (paul_p's fix for Bug 4430) broke Master for git installs by adding Makefile to the repository.
16:30 huginn jcamins: The operation succeeded.
16:31 jcamins @later tell rangi (and I don't really know what to do about it other than tell you)
16:31 huginn jcamins: The operation succeeded.
16:32 gmcharlt jcamins: sending a quick patch removing the Makefile might make it easier for rangi
16:32 jcamins gmcharlt: can I do that without breaking everyone's installation further?
16:34 gmcharlt jcamins: not sure what you mean; the problem is pretty simple - there should be no Makefile in the root of the source tree; a patch that removes the file will solve the immediate problem
16:35 jcamins Okay.
16:35 gmcharlt as far as consequences if somebody had run make in their dev-mode git repo, I assume it should be limited just to those people who had installed from git since yesterday
16:37 jcamins Okay, thanks.
16:37 * jcamins still finds much of git to be an enigmatic black box.
16:47 jcamins @later tell rangi Sorry for all the messages. I sent a patch, since gmcharlt sensed my confusion and told me what to do.

18:00 rangi this branch tracks master, but is running template toolkit
18:01 rangi after the feature freeze, it will become master (1st of april nz time)
18:01 cait oh
18:01 cait so soon?
18:01 rangi and a new branch will be created (just before that) so that i can apply old patches to it
18:01 rangi yes
18:01 chris_n if an item with a hold on it is checked into a branch other than its homebranch, shouldn't the hold notice still be sent?
18:02 rangi ill write an email today
18:02 rangi 1st is feature freeze

18:08 rangi gotta go get the kids ready for kindergarten

18:09 rangi yes, thats why im freezing at 1st
18:09 jcamins I know we don't believe in cleaning code just for the heck of it, but what if we have 20 lines of duplicate code differing only by the string "target='_blank'"?
18:09 cait kindergarten :)
18:09 jcamins Can I *please* fix it?
18:09 rangi theres no way it will all get tested otherwise
18:09 rangi jcamins: we do believe in cleaning code for the heck of it
18:09 rangi we dont believe in mixing code cleaning
18:09 rangi and functional changes in one patch

18:55 wizzyrea hi conan
18:55 conan Q: I'm looking for db structure graphics and/or explanation/synthesis, didn't find much in a general search, and looking in the community wiki I see that there are no new info on koha > 3.0.3
18:55 conan so my question is
18:56 conan are those documents accurate, I mean, has the DB changed too much to make those documents obsolete, or can they be studied ?
18:58 conan I also found this: http://koha.1045719.n5.nabble.[…]on-td3066924.html
18:58 conan but it seems that project died
18:59 rangi you can study them but there has been changes
18:59 rangi look at the kohastructure.sql file
19:02 MichaelNCAR joined #koha

19:03 MichaelNCAR left #koha
19:04 sekjal passing kohastructure.sql through the program SQLFairy would help... but the map is HUGE
19:04 conan rangi: I'be been perusing that one.  But I also was wondering if I could find some sort of graphic thingy to show relations and stuff
19:04 conan I always go to the proper sql for the details
19:08 conan I guess what's on wiki should suffice, but I didn't wanted to start looking at them before asking for current versions
19:08 conan (should suffice as introduction)
19:12 rangi adding to it, and fixing it, would be hugely useful
19:14 sekjal is now known as sekjal_away
19:14 conan :)
19:14 conan one step at a time
19:15 conan I still need to do a proper presentation on the list
19:15 rangi well, you are bound to notice easy fixes (a new column etc)
19:15 conan but I need to know first what my new boss really wants about koha
19:15 rangi documenting that on the wiki is a start :)
19:16 conan oh! that should be easy, I'll get sure to make notes should I find changes, so then I can write them on wiki
19:17 rangi cool
19:17 rangi also
19:17 rangi can you read perl?
19:18 conan I'm relearning it
19:18 conan haven't touched perl since 1998

19:20 cait jcamis: did you check if enumchron shows up for serial records?
19:20 cait I think it does or did
19:20 jcamins It doesn't seem to show up at all.
19:21 cait hm
19:21 jcamins This isn't in the table, but in the items detail page.
19:21 jcamins I wrote a patch and sent it to my coworkers to sign off on.
19:21 cait ah
19:21 cait which screen?
19:21 cait not the edit items table and not the record detail page?
19:21 cait but?
19:21 wahanui but is teh free?
19:21 jcamins wahanui: forget but
19:21 wahanui jcamins: I forgot but
19:22 jcamins cait: view a record, then click on the "Items" tab.
19:22 jcamins It will show you all the items in an expanded format.
19:24 cait ah thx
19:29 conan rangi: I can't find that 'Schema' dir in my local git repo, I just did a pull
19:30 rangi you wont
19:30 rangi wip/koha-catalyst.git
19:30 conan that's another branch?
19:30 rangi git remore add catalyst-wip git://
19:31 rangi another repo
19:31 rangi
19:31 conan ah! so that's new work
19:32 conan will it be pushed upstream someday? or this is something completely different?
19:32 rangi probably go upstream one day
19:32 rangi maybe for 3.4 if I have time, for 3.6 if i dont
19:33 rangi but for now, i just thought it might be a more readable schema for you
19:34 conan rangi: thanks, I have so much to read, I know I'm asking too many question
19:35 rangi theres no such thing as too many questions
19:35 rangi unless its the same one over and over ;)

19:40 cait the library I visited today asked about a message "x items waiting for pickup" when the borrower returns books
19:40 cait and there are holds waiting for him
19:40 wizzyrea interesting, like something on the screen?
19:41 rangi that wouldnt be hard to do
19:41 wizzyrea or an email?
19:41 wahanui an email is weird, theres about a million reasons why you may not have got it yet
19:41 wizzyrea wahanui: forget email
19:41 wahanui wizzyrea: I forgot email
19:42 wizzyrea email is weird
19:42 wizzyrea email?
19:42 wahanui email is probably weird
19:42 wizzyrea mhm, I agree
19:42 wizzyrea cait: my thought about that, well, at least for our libraries
19:43 wizzyrea is that lots of times return happens and the patron isn't standing there
19:43 cait sorry, on the screen yes
19:43 wizzyrea (they put their books in the bin)
19:43 cait you return a book and get a message on top that there are books waiting for this patron
19:43 cait so you can ask for his library card and check them out
19:44 wizzyrea I see why they would want that
19:44 cait would the message disturb checking in books fromthe bin?
19:45 cait should it be controlled by a syspref?
19:45 wizzyrea I don't think so... would it clutter up the return screen?
19:45 wizzyrea (and would it, probably more importantly, slow down returns?)
19:45 wizzyrea (fetching more data)
19:45 rangi yes, yes and yes
19:45 cait hm
19:45 rangi so a syspref is my vote
19:46 rangi can be on by default
19:46 rangi but there should be the option to turn it off
19:46 cait ok
19:46 rangi for those who find it annoying
19:46 wizzyrea slow returns = bad
19:47 rangi it wouldnt be much slower, you have most of that info already
19:47 rangi it would more be clutter
19:47 rangi but i think a lot of libraries would like it
19:47 rangi and hey, we can allow ppl to turn it off, problem solved
19:47 cait hehe
19:47 cait show waiting items on return?
19:48 wizzyrea yea, I think they would too... I wish that there was a return screen that only did returns/holds for that person charged with emptying the bin
19:48 wizzyrea something superfast
19:48 wizzyrea maybe even batch
19:49 cait scan all barcodes and return at once? probably difficult for printing the holds /transfer slips
19:50 wizzyrea well yea, that's what I always come up against
19:50 wizzyrea we can't even make that work on the circ screen :P
19:50 wizzyrea er haven't yet
19:50 wizzyrea you'd probably have to do something like
19:50 wizzyrea pop out a list of the exceptions
19:51 wizzyrea "you need to do more to these"
19:51 jcamins Mmm. This sourdough is very... errr... sour. :D
19:52 wizzyrea nom
19:52 wizzyrea we made the oatmeal cookies again this weekend, jcamins
19:52 rangi mail to the dev list sent
19:53 jcamins Much better than my last attempt (which wasn't _bad_, but wasn't nearly sour enough).
19:53 rangi read it, learn it, live it
19:53 jcamins wizzyrea: mmmm.
19:53 cait rangi? the mail?
19:54 rangi yes
19:54 jcamins cait: sourdough, too. It is not just a food in the Camins household. It's a way of life. ;)
19:54 cait lol
19:54 cait ok
19:54 * cait will not tell that she doesn't like sourdough much
19:54 cait ah
19:54 * cait hides
19:56 jcamins :)
19:58 rangi who has 5 mins free?
19:58 rangi anyone want to fix my typo and post the mail on the website?
19:58 rangi :)
20:02 wizzyrea i got it
20:02 rangi thanks

20:22 wizzyrea does anyone know, and I'm sorry i may have asked this before... the hold queue report: does it or does it not favor the library of the patron who has the hold?
20:25 * jcamins doesn't think it favors the patron's home library, but he might be mistaken.
20:26 jcamins Is it possible to delete a vendor?
20:26 rangi i dont think it does currently
20:26 rangi jcamins: not sure, i think you just make them inactive jcamins
20:27 cait jcamins: no you can't delete them- I wrote a bug report about htat
20:27 cait you can only make them inactive
20:27 wizzyrea rangi: posted
20:27 wizzyrea (complete with typo correction ;))
20:27 sekjal_away is now known as sekjal
20:27 rangi it would be an enhancement, for deletion and it would have to be done very very very very very very very carefully
20:27 rangi because as soon as you delete a vendor
20:28 rangi you lose acquisition history for any item received from them
20:28 cait bug 4969
20:28 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=4969 minor, P5, ---, henridamien, NEW, Vendors can not be deleted / show only active vendors
20:28 jcamins Ahh, good point.
20:28 rangi thats why you cant do it currently
20:29 rangi It strikes me you might want to flag a bookseller as inactive, i.e. retained
20:29 rangi for historic info but flagged as not to use for new orders
20:29 rangi is the last comment, and yes, thats what we do :)
20:29 rangi deleting is very dangerous
20:36 jcamins Doesn't Koha support running reports in a batch?
20:36 jcamins I think I remember reading about that feature, but I can't seem to find it now.
20:37 rangi in a batch?
20:37 rangi not that im aware of
20:37 sekjal there is the cron script, which can take in multiple report numbers to run
20:38 jcamins Ah, maybe that's what I was thinking of.

22:56 jcamins_away LBA1: did you identify yourself to nickserv?
23:06 LBA1 I guess not...I just joined the chat.  I used to automatically get logged into the chat AND get identified by nickserv so not sure what I've changed.
23:07 * jcamins_away hasn't figure out why sometimes he's automatically identified and sometimes isn't, but that was his only idea.
