03:19 stevenmirabito Hi all!
03:19 rangi hi stevenmirabito
03:19 Callender joined #koha
03:19 stevenmirabito Does anyone know where I might find
03:20 stevenmirabito It creates the SQLite DB for the Offline Circulation Tool
03:21 rangi hmm I think that comes separate to koha
03:21 rangi im on my phone so can't look easily
03:21 rangi try google for kylemhall koha offline circ
03:22 rangi you could also look in
03:22 rangi in case it is there
03:23 stevenmirabito That's where I'm looking now
03:24 rangi right im pretty sure its not there, ie its not part of core koha
03:25 rangi it was developed by kyle hall so if google u should find it
03:25 stevenmirabito Success! It does come bundled in the Koha release in ./misc/cronjobs/
03:25 rangi ah cool :)
03:26 * rangi is happy to be wrong
03:27 stevenmirabito And is installed on Debian @ /usr/share/koha/bin/cronjobs/
03:27 stevenmirabito Thanks for your help rangi!
03:27 rangi sweet u use the packages?
03:28 stevenmirabito Yep - it's a whole lot easier than doing all of the config manually
03:28 rangi u might wanna file an ehancement request
03:28 rangi to get that job added to the koha-common cron jobs
03:28 stevenmirabito I actually found LibLime Koha first, but moved here after I learned the history of the project. So far, I'm very happy. :)
03:29 rangi
03:29 stevenmirabito Well, not everyone needs it - it's really just useful for those who need to use the offline circulation tool
03:29 rangi excellent thats great to hear
03:29 rangi especially in the context of the last few days
03:30 chrisdothall hehe
03:30 rangi true
03:31 stevenmirabito Obviously I'm out of the loop

07:21 kmkale left #koha
07:22 sijobl is anybody using it in a anti trade agreements angle yet?
07:22 rangi hmmmm, not that i know of
07:24 sijobl not having listened to any of the reports, or read any of what the media was saying, I assumed it would be a good story to join the dots to have a dig about trade agreements being negotiated in secret
07:24 sijobl with more maori culture getting apprpriate overseas, so on, and so forth
07:24 sijobl appropriated, even
07:25 sijobl otherwise it's a fairly dull story
07:25 sijobl news at ten, open source project bickers over trademarks

11:59 mib_xjcvw2 has anyone come across this?
12:01 kf from which version did you update?
12:01 kf are you using zebra?
12:01 mib_xjcvw2 yes, we'te using zebra
12:01 mib_xjcvw2 version was old....
12:01 kf ok
12:01 mib_xjcvw2 maybe 3.05 or 3.06
12:01 kf you have to run a sscript
12:01 kf it's in the release notes for version 3.4
12:02 kf with 3.4 koha removed the items information from the marcxml blobs in the database, only keeping them in the items table now
12:02 mib_xjcvw2 Oh.....thanks, I will check it out - sorry

15:34 jcamins paul_p: your proposal is that everything to be backported to 3.6.x has to be implemented twice?
15:35 * chris_n reads it that way
15:35 kf perhaps chris_n's solution will be a lot less trouble
15:35 chris_n I'm wondering what real objection there could be in moving 3.6.x to the proposed new update system
15:35 kf I am not sure at all what we gain with the new process :(
15:36 kf it seems we only make it easier to have local database customizatons
15:36 kf which I am not sure is a good idea at all
15:36 jcamins chris_n: that's how I read it, too, but it seems a lot more complicated.
15:36 paul_p jcamins, right.
15:36 paul_p chris_n, I don't understand your last email.
15:36 jcamins kf: the new way of managing updatedatabase seems much preferable to me, but not having two different schemes.
15:36 jcamins paul_p: why?
15:37 jcamins paul_p: it seems to me that having two schemes just raises the barrier for entry.
15:37 paul_p ( jcamins right for "everything to be ... implemented twice". At least it was. With the idea of having updatedatabase30to36 then updatedatabase (new one), that's ok)

15:37 chris_n` is now known as chris_n
15:37 paul_p jcamins, right, that's why, now i'm proposing just to have 2 updatedatabase, as we had when upgrading 2.2 to 3.0
15:38 paul_p chris_n, I don't understand your last email.
15:38 chris_n what a time to be kiked by bip
15:38 jcamins paul_p: so with the two, new things will be in upgradedatabase only, and old things will be in upgradedatabase30to36 only?
15:38 kf paul_p: that sounds complicated to me - for the libraries
15:38 kf lots of explanations needed
15:38 jcamins So that new features only need one implementation?
15:38 chris_n paul_p: moving 3.6.x to the proposed new updatedatabase will relieve a lot of work
15:38 kf when you come from that version, do this... when you come from this... do soemthing else
15:38 trea left #koha
15:38 chris_n both for devs and the RMaint
15:39 jcamins kf: no, not too bad... 3.6.1.whatever would run updatedatabase30to36.
15:39 chris_n as I said, I see no real reason not to move 3.6.x along that path
15:39 trea joined #koha
15:40 chris_n the current could contain an update which pushes current installs over to the new system
15:40 paul_p chris_n & jcamins & kf, I think i'm not clear, but that's the easiest way. I'll try to be clear:
15:40 chris_n so then you just go on living like you normally would and life is good
15:40 jcamins chris_n: agreed.
15:40 chris_n well, most of the time ;-)
15:40 kf chris_n: sounds good to me
15:41 paul_p - patches that introduce an updatedb, that is for 3.6 will be in the 3.6 updatedatabase
15:41 paul_p - patch that introduce an updatedb that is for 3.8 will be in the 3.8 (new) updatedatabase
15:41 kf can't the new system check for the version? and not ask to do those that are marked to be in 3.6?
15:41 paul_p - someone upgrading from 3.4 to 3.8 will just have to run updatedatabase (3.6) THEN updatedatabase (3.8)
15:42 chris_n that will probably work as well as the current need of devs writing two patches for 3.4.x and 3.6.x
15:42 jcamins paul_p: that seems like an added complication.
15:42 mib_87cyjt joined #koha
15:42 chris_n it does not happen that way very often.. oleonard excepted
15:42 mib_87cyjt Hey all
15:42 paul_p jcamins, why ? it's much much more complex to backport the new system to 3.6 ! (and much more risky !)
15:42 kf chris_n: I think you are right - having to write patches for 2 systems is hard, and moving from one to the other will be too
15:42 kf what happens later with the new system?
15:42 mib_87cyjt I was on earlier about a strange problem with 3.6
15:42 jcamins paul_p: why can't the new updatedatabase call the old one (or the old one upgrade itself to the new one)?
15:42 paul_p kf, right, and with this proposal, we don't have this problem
15:43 kf won't we have that problem again? moving from 3.8.3 to 4.0?
15:43 kf I think this is all the problems we get by delinearizing...
15:43 mib_87cyjt Edited or checked in items show as either still checked out or it zero-ises the items on the bib
15:43 kf it will happen constantly
15:43 paul_p kf, hopefully, the updatedatabase system is not changed everyday !!!
15:43 jcamins paul_p: but, if we don't backport the system to 3.6, 3.6 won't get bugfixes.
15:43 kf no
15:43 kf but hwo will the system now?
15:43 chris_n in reality, multi-version upgrades should do sequential calls to the respective version's
15:43 kf know
15:43 kf ?
15:43 kf which updates to apply?
15:44 Guest18017 left #koha
15:44 jcamins kf: it has a list of possible updates and a list of updates which have been applied.
15:44 paul_p jcamins, why ? yes it will. and bugfixes with an updatedatabase will be made on 3.6 updatedatabase. nothing changed
15:44 kf jcamins: checking by name?
15:44 jcamins paul_p: because I only have time to write code once.
15:44 kf so I have the file applied in 3.8.x and 4.0.x will have the file too, but know it's the same?
15:44 paul_p chris_n, sequential calls = right, as we did for 2.2-> 3.0 for example
15:44 jcamins paul_p: actually, I don't even have time for that.
15:44 paul_p jcamins, but you'll just have to write code once !!!
15:44 jcamins kf: probably by some sort of hash.
15:44 trea1 joined #koha
15:44 jcamins paul_p: okay, I'm still confused then.
15:45 paul_p if your code is a bugfix, and should be applied on 3.6, use "3.6 updatedatabase" system
15:45 jcamins I thought you were saying that 3.6 will require a different set of code for updatedatabase than will master.
15:45 paul_p if your code is an ENH, use 3.8 new system
15:45 jcamins paul_p: but then bugfixes won't go in 3.8?
15:45 paul_p jcamins, not at all.
15:45 chris_n paul_p: so if the 3.6.x has a routine to switch over to the new update system, then things will go fine during multi-version updates
15:46 chris_n so why maintain two different tracks?
15:46 jcamins How do they get into 3.8, then, if the updatedatabase is for 3.6?
15:46 paul_p jcamins, not either = if you write in 3.8 release notes : "execute installer/data/mysql/updatedatabase 1st, then head to admin > update database", that will do the job !
15:46 jcamins Ohhh.
15:46 jcamins I see.
15:47 * chris_n still sees no reason to maintain two different systems
15:47 * jcamins either, but at least now I understand what paul_p is saying.
15:47 jcamins I think.
15:47 paul_p chris_n, how would you do to have just 1 ?
15:47 chris_n and at present is not persuaded to support such a move
15:48 chris_n paul_p: port the new code back to 3.6.x
15:48 chris_n the two codebases are not that divergent atm
15:48 chris_n so there should be little problem doing so
15:48 chris_n or
15:48 paul_p chris_n, yikes ! would require a LOT of testings + change of behaviour in the middle of a stable version : i think i'm strongly against this idea to backport !
15:48 chris_n make the move at the last moment prior to releasing 3.8.x
15:49 * chris_n sees a deadlock looming
15:49 paul_p chris_n, for users, that will be the case
15:49 chris_n it needs to be for devs too
15:49 paul_p for developers, that could be a little bit more tricky. But we're hackers, isn't it ?
15:49 magnuse is now known as magnus_away
15:49 * kf goes silent out of confusion
15:49 chris_n many fixes which require db updates will not make it into 3.6.x simply because folks do not take time to do the work twice
15:50 chris_n I already have this problem
15:50 chris_n introducing two db update methods will only make it twice as much a problem, imho
15:51 paul_p chris_n, NO = if a patch has to go into 3.6.x => it MUST be "old method".
15:51 chris_n right, which will result in people not taking time to do that
15:51 paul_p if a patch is an ENH, then it will be for 3.8 => it MUST be "new method"
15:51 chris_n and 3.6.x looses some needed fixes
15:51 paul_p chris_n, why ? they would have to do only 1 method
15:51 chris_n this happened with 3.2.x nearly as soon as the switch to TT took place
15:51 trea left #koha
15:52 chris_n paul_p: what about bugfixes which require db updates?
15:52 chris_n those will be lost unless everyone takes time to do the double work
15:52 hdl left #koha
15:52 paul_p chris_n, why double work ? there would be just a "old method" updatedatabase
15:53 * paul_p feel there's some misunderstanding between us
15:53 kf and how do we solve the bug in 3.7?
15:53 * chris_n too
15:53 kf I thik we all got very confused
15:53 chris_n what kf said
15:53 kf not only me
15:53 chris_n is exactly the issue
15:53 chris_n the bug will be in 3.6.x && 3.7.x
15:53 chris_n thus, double work
15:54 chris_n devs will be fixing for 3.7.x
15:54 paul_p kf, what kind of "bug" ? if it's a bugfix, then it will be fixed with the old updatedatabase system
15:54 chris_n not 3.6.x
15:54 * chris_n is confused now
15:54 chris_n are we going to maintain two db update systems in 3.7?
15:54 paul_p yep.
15:54 kf paul_p: you assume noone installs master
15:54 kf which people do
15:54 paul_p kf, good point ! (very good point in fact...)
15:55 trea1 left #koha
15:55 kf we have to keep them in sync
15:55 kf or we will get into all kind of trouble (imho)
15:55 paul_p kf, right
15:56 chris_n paul_p: I think if we don't back port the new method, we wait to drop it in immediately after the feature freeze of 3.7
15:56 kf I think chris_n is worried about having 2 methods
15:56 chris_n that will minimize confusion
15:56 chris_n and work
15:56 kf and you are worried to backport, because it might be dangerous utnil it's better tested
15:56 chris_n and <your-favorite-term>
15:56 kf so perhaps we can find another way
15:56 kf or not... but somethign that works for all situations that can appear
15:57 paul_p chris_n, nope, because how will you manage ENH inclusion in 3.8 ? old method ?
15:57 chris_n I really don't anticipate many issues with a new db update system that has been throughly tested prior to committing to master
15:57 phasefx joined #koha
15:57 chris_n paul_p: exactly
15:57 jcamins So what you're proposing is: All bugfixes are implemented using the existing numbered updatedatabase scheme, so that they can be put in 3.6. They are also added to 3.8 in the same way. All features are implemented using the new, hash-based updatedatabase scheme. Those cannot be backported to 3.8.
15:58 jcamins What about bugfixes for 3.10/3.8/3.6?
15:59 * chris_n urges all to remember that releases are only maintained as long as there are commits applicable to them
15:59 paul_p I can't argue why, but I feel there will be a problem with chris_n suggestion
15:59 chris_n so if we make it too hard, the release dies an early, and possibly untimely death
15:59 paul_p (tries to find why)
15:59 kf perhaps we should resume the discussion tomorrowß
15:59 kf so everyone has some time to think about it?
15:59 jcamins Very untimely, since lots of people don't use .0 releases.
15:59 paul_p kf++
16:00 kf perhaps set a time
16:00 chris_n paul_p: is the new code so unstable that you fear problems with it in production?
16:00 * chris_n agrees this needs discussion by a larger audience of devs
16:00 paul_p chris_n, no, but it still must be tested ;-)
16:00 * jcamins thinks tomorrow isn't a good day for USians.

16:01 kf chris_n:  what is tomorrow?
16:01 wahanui well, tomorrow is pizza friday! or the day after today.
16:01 chris_n kf: thanksgiving day
16:01 chris_n no wahanui
16:01 chris_n no pizza on thanksgiving
16:01 chris_n only turkey
16:01 chris_n :-)
16:01 jcamins chris_n: speak for yourself!
16:01 nengard what do you need a bywater person for?
16:01 nengard wasn't keeping up
16:01 paul_p turkey pizza maybe ?
16:01 jcamins Turkey pizza!
16:01 chris_n jcamins: turkey pizza?
16:01 jcamins :D
16:01 nengard eww
16:02 jcamins Apparently my jokes are predictable?
16:02 paul_p nengard, ;-) we were speaking of the proposal for new updatedatabase system, that cause a problem for ppl running master if we apply it as it's implemented for now !
16:02 nengard oh!
16:02 chris_n paul_p: I'd like to see discussion from some others on this prior to formulating my own final opinion
16:02 nengard I have to admit I was following that proposal for a bit then it got confusing
16:03 chris_n I'm against it in practice, but not necessarily in principle at this point
16:03 jcamins nengard: it's still confusing, sorry.
16:03 paul_p workaround idea: have 2 "version" sysprefs, one for the old system, one for the new one
16:04 hdl joined #koha
16:04 paul_p i've another idea = completly disconnect the new system from the previous numbering. That's how it was planned before. I'll ask jonathan about this idea
16:04 chris_n paul_p: do you have a working branch with this new db update code available for test?
16:05 paul_p chris_n, just submitting the patches on but 7161
16:05 jcamins paul_p: +1
16:05 paul_p bug 7167
16:05 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7167 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, paul.poulain, ASSIGNED , updatedatabase improvements
16:05 chris_n those apply over master?
16:05 paul_p jcamins, for which proposition ?
16:05 paul_p chris_n, yep
16:05 jcamins paul_p: second.
16:05 paul_p see comment 5 for test plan
16:05 * chris_n will try to take time to exercise the code and see if his understanding clears up
16:05 trea joined #koha
16:06 jcamins paul_p: that's what chris_n and I have been arguing for, more-or-less.
16:06 jcamins At least, I think chris_n and I agree.
16:06 jcamins ;)
16:07 chris_n at this point, I think the new db code should be throughly tested, debugged, and go live immediately
16:07 chris_n but I reserve the right to change my opinion... ;-)
16:08 kf heh
16:08 kf so have another meeting perhaps?
16:08 kf to discuss this?
16:08 kf after thanksgiving
16:08 jcamins I agree with that, provided it does not use the existing versioning syspref. If it uses the existing versioning syspref, that'll cause problems with the 3.6->3.8 conversion.
16:08 chris_n it would be good to have a called meeting for just this subject to include as many devs as possible
16:09 jcamins Agreed.
16:09 reiveune bye
16:09 reiveune left #koha
16:10 chris_n paul_p: would you be willing to post an announcement to the dev list scheduling such a meeting?
16:12 slef has/could anyone design(ed) a leaflet soliciting donations to HLT for the legal defence of Koha? We've an opportunity to distribute some to librarians but no time to design them (and it's a bit tight to print them)
16:12 kf i haven't seen any leaflets yet :(
16:13 kf perhaps in nz?
16:13 jcamins paul_p: I withdraw my objection to using the versioning syspref with the new system. chris_n has explained to me how it could work.

16:23 mib_87cyjt Edited or checked in items show as either still checked out or it zero-ises the items on the bib
16:23 mib_87cyjt has anyone seen this on 3.6?
16:23 kf since an update?
16:24 kf and have you been here before? :)
16:24 mib_87cyjt Yep
16:24 mib_87cyjt and
16:24 mib_87cyjt yep!
16:24 mib_87cyjt I ran the script and it resolved it for any items that had been changed
16:24 mib_87cyjt however, any items now checked in or bibs edited results in the same
16:24 jcamins mib_87cyjt: it sounds like rebuild_zebra isn't running.
16:24 kf very good questions from marcel on the list
16:25 jcamins How did you install Koha?
16:25 mib_87cyjt me?
16:25 kf mib_87cyjt: have you reindexed?
16:25 mib_87cyjt jcamins:
16:25 mib_87cyjt Yeah, full bib reindex - completed fine
16:25 mib_87cyjt it fixed the problem with bibs but it still causes problems with any newly edited bibs or items checked in
16:25 jcamins mib_87cyjt: yes, you.
16:26 mib_87cyjt Sorry, I don't understand - what do you mean, how did I install?
16:26 jcamins mib_87cyjt: you have Koha running on a server. You must have put it on the server somehow.
16:26 jcamins Did you use packages?
16:26 jcamins Install it by downloading the tarball?
16:26 jcamins Using git?
16:27 mib_87cyjt OK, I understand now. I downloaded the latest stable release and manuall installed it
16:27 jcamins Okay.
16:27 slef kf: I'll ask the nz chatters when they wake.
16:27 mib_87cyjt sorry - upgraded it
16:27 jcamins Ah-ha. What did you upgrade from? 3.0.something?
16:27 mib_87cyjt it was on 3.00x - to be honest I don't remember the exact version - maybe 2 years old
16:28 paul_p jcamins & kf & chris_n = idea suggested by joubu = preference("version") is unmodified until 3.8 official release. Thus, the 3.6 updatedatabase will continue to work fine. The new updatesystem can be completly disconnected from this syspref, so we will get the best of the 2 worlds !
16:28 jcamins Yeah, the problem is that you were using zebraqueue daemon. You need to disable that, and set up the cron job using rebuild_zebra.
16:28 jcamins If you take a look in INSTALL.debian, you'll see how to do that.
16:28 mib_87cyjt I was/am using both
16:28 slef jcamins: any problem with the marc-in-items change?
16:29 mib_87cyjt zebraqueue updates authorities immediately
16:29 kf paul_p: taht makes sense, but we should check the different situations we can get into
16:29 slef items-in-marc even
16:29 jcamins You can't use both. You can only use one.
16:29 jcamins zebraqueue daemon is fundamentally broken.
16:29 mib_87cyjt Can't I use that in 3.6?
16:29 jcamins No.
16:29 jcamins slef: good call.
16:29 kf paul_p: because we need to tell the new system still which things should not be applied then because they were in older versions already
16:29 chris_n paul_p: i'd like to see a working example where the same patch works for both branches running two different systems before I really comment on that option
16:29 mib_87cyjt OK. So, do I need to wait x minutes for new Auths to appear when creating a bib?
16:29 jcamins mib_87cyjt: did you follow the instructions to run removeitemsfrombiblioitems or whatever it is?
16:29 mib_87cyjt cron  = x minutes
16:29 jcamins Yes.
16:30 mib_87cyjt oh, that's going to be difficult for cataloguing 100s of new bibs - is there a work around?
16:30 trea joined #koha
16:30 slef mib_87cyjt: there's a project to make a new zebraqueue daemon but it's not finished in 3.6 AIUI.

16:30 mib_87cyjt OK. The removeitems..... just has a run switch, that's all I did - is that correct?
16:30 slef that last one is it
16:31 jcamins mib_87cyjt: that's right. If you did that, then the problem is just the cron job.
16:31 jcamins Just trying to make sure we're thorough in our advice. :)
16:31 mib_87cyjt Cool, so disable zebraqueue and reindex and we should be good?
16:31 jcamins And put rebuild_zebra in the crontab.
16:31 jcamins Then you'll be good to go.
16:32 mib_87cyjt rebuild_zebra is already there but only every 10 mins....
16:32 mib_87cyjt excellent, I will try this out - thanks
16:32 jcamins You're welcome.
16:32 jcamins I usually do 5 minutes.
16:33 jcamins But I only have low-use catalogs.

16:33 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5166 enhancement, PATCH-Sent, ---, tomascohen, ASSIGNED , Reintroduce a zebraqueue daemon, make several functions a lib
16:33 mib_87cyjt Yeah, it's going to be met with some groans from the cataloguers as they loved the zebraqueue updating straight away!
16:34 jcamins mib_87cyjt: yeah, that bothers me, too (I'm a cataloger), but I like my servers staying up even better. ;)
16:34 slef although I see that it looks like zebraqueue daemon is ready to appear in 3.7 after some discussion on koha-devel finishes (why no link in the bug paul_p?)
16:35 jcamins slef: really? Awesome!
16:35 * jcamins missed that.
16:35 slef jcamins: that's how I understand it.  It's needing sign off.
16:35 mib_87cyjt jcamins: me too!
16:35 jcamins Ah.
16:36 slef read the above bug link
16:36 jcamins I'll give it a try if I ever get a spare hour.
16:36 slef maybe I've misunderstood
16:36 slef my hours are for sale ;-)
16:37 jcamins slef: so are mine. :P
16:37 slef jcamins: I thought they were. I was prompting you ;-)
16:37 jcamins Ah. Thanks.
16:37 jcamins I read it the same way you do.
16:37 slef buy mine here ... and jcamins at...
16:37 jcamins Nifty!

16:38 slef (I've a niftier purchase page but bleah, not ready for primetime yet.)
16:38 jcamins I figure most of my clientele prefers to do things with paper anyway, so an attractive shopping cart isn't very high on the to-do list.
16:39 slef it varies but I know what you mean
16:52 wizzyrea mornin
16:53 magnus_away kia ora!
16:53 jcamins Morning.
16:53 jcamins wizzyrea: apparently the datatables thing might make your reading history usable again.
16:53 wizzyrea noice!
16:53 jcamins Or, at least, more usable.
16:53 wizzyrea well we whacked around it with a firefox hack.
16:53 wizzyrea but that's great
16:54 oleonard What hack wizzyrea?
16:54 jcamins Yeah, but wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to take a nap while waiting for it to load? ;)
16:54 wizzyrea increased the script timeout
16:54 wizzyrea from like, 15s to 60s
16:54 * wizzyrea is a bit gobsmacked to see on TV
16:55 jcamins wizzyrea: on US TV, too?
16:55 wizzyrea no, on nz tv
16:55 oleonard Are we on Keith Olbermann yet?
16:55 wizzyrea thumbs up though, the server's doing just fine ;)
16:55 jcamins Still impressive, but I was imagining a spotlight during the Thanksgiving parade. :)
16:55 wizzyrea uhno
16:56 jcamins Oh my... will I be downtown during the parade?
16:56 oleonard
16:56 jcamins Ewwww.
16:56 jcamins oleonard: what am I looking at?

16:57 oleonard gotta figure out how to add the option to the staff client home page
16:57 wizzyrea *nod* that was my next question :)
16:57 wizzyrea purchase suggestions would be another one
16:57 wizzyrea that would be great for that treatment
16:57 jcamins Oh, good news. It's the Thanksgiving _Day_ Parade, not the Thanksgiving _Eve_ Parade.

17:10 magnus_away or words to that effect
17:10 oleonard But that concept of a dashboard is pretty different.[…]aff_Dashboard_RFC
17:12 oleonard Ah, but a patch was submitted last week
17:12 * oleonard missed that
17:16 jcamins It seems to me there should be some sort of library that handles dependency solving.
17:17 jcamins Granted, the traveling salesman problem is NP-Complete, but surely for a simple case, where the most efficient solution isn't required, it's been solved.

17:22 wizzyrea right - i applied it and I don't see anything different
17:22 mib_87cyjt syspref?
17:22 mib_87cyjt to turn it on
17:22 wizzyrea OH
17:22 wizzyrea :) ty
17:22 mib_87cyjt welcome
17:22 wizzyrea where would I be without you super smart people. ;)
17:22 mib_87cyjt and you need to run the xml script to populate it
17:23 mib_87cyjt perl script to populate the xml file, that is
17:24 jcamins The dashboard uses an XML file?
17:25 mib_87cyjt seemingly
17:26 mib_87cyjt so the bug suggests too
17:26 jcamins paul_p: I will give a +1 to your proposal.
17:27 jcamins Wait, no, I'll give a +0.5.
17:27 jcamins There's a problem when we reach 3.6.7.
17:27 paul_p ;-)
17:27 paul_p (I must leave, drop a mail to raise your objection pls)
17:28 jcamins I'll try to remember when I'm on the train.
17:28 oleonard
17:28 wizzyrea +1 oleonard
17:28 * oleonard should have looked into this earlier; dead simple stuff.
17:29 paul_p mmm... jcamins I see the problem, and you're right. Maybe we must handle version syspref for pre 3.8 only, and another way for later...
17:29 paul_p time to leave NOW !
17:29 wizzyrea bye :)

17:43 jcamins Yay! You're getting close!
17:43 kf subfield e is not really close
17:43 kf they are alphabetical
17:43 kf makes for a lot of searching around too
17:43 magnuse smoe of those choices reads like museum of forgotten technologies...

17:45 magnuse hm, i don't think normarc has that - too bad
17:45 kf 785!
17:46 magnuse on the other hand i do have a problem that i have spent all day on and still can't make head or tail of...
17:47 magnuse i can't save or edit items
17:47 magnuse it's a dev install on a 3.4.5 codebase, shared with other installs that are not misbehaving
17:47 kf :(
17:47 * rangi wanders off again
17:48 wizzyrea javascript?
17:48 wahanui it has been said that javascript is required for interactions with clicks
17:48 wizzyrea jquery I mean
17:48 magnuse the marcxml still has the items in it - that might be because the remove_items... script failed when i upgraded
17:48 rangi i think koha is gonna be on radio again this morning
17:48 wizzyrea !
17:48 jcamins magnuse: used jQuery to remove a column or a textbox or something?
17:48 magnuse rangi: sad & cool
17:48 wizzyrea ^^ is what I was asking
17:48 magnuse jcamins: nope, no fancy stuff
17:49 magnuse when i add a new item, nothing happens, the number of items displayed does not change at all
17:49 ago43 left #koha
17:50 magnuse it doesn't show up here: /cgi-bin/koha/cataloguing/a​
17:50 wizzyrea the items do or do not get into the database?
17:50 magnuse well, they get into the database, but loose a lot of info
17:50 magnuse like barcode
17:50 wizzyrea oh!
17:50 magnuse it does show up here: /cgi-bin/koha/catalogue/
17:51 wizzyrea are you on the 3.4 revision that chanted the lost status?
17:51 magnuse but the only info is itemtype, status and last seen
17:51 wizzyrea changed*
17:51 wizzyrea is the data offset at all?
17:51 wizzyrea in the wrong fields?
17:51 magnuse nope, the table looks good
17:52 Oak left #koha
17:53 kf 705..
17:53 ago43 joined #koha
17:53 magnuse when i'm on /cgi-bin/koha/cataloguing/a​ the link to edit an item looks like this: /cgi-bin/koha/cataloguing/​titem&biblionumber=222&itemnumber=#edititem
17:54 magnuse the itemnumber is missing
17:54 magnuse i thought maybe that was a template thing, but other installs runing off the same codebase does not have this problem
17:55 jcamins magnuse: does it show up on the opac?
17:55 magnuse i tried running remove_items... script again and it completes without errors, but without removing the items
17:56 wizzyrea maybe gmcharlt has an idea
17:56 jcamins Speculation: the remove_items script doesn't understand NORMARC.
17:57 magnuse yeah, the almost emprty items show up in the opac
17:57 magnuse i tried setting marcflavor to marc21 before running the script, but no luck
17:57 jcamins Do *all* the records have items still in the marcxml?
17:58 magnuse all the ones i have checked
17:59 jcamins That's the reason for the symptoms, but I'm not sure the cause.
17:59 jcamins Did you try manually running the script?
18:00 magnuse yeah (is there another way?)
18:00 jcamins Using the utility.
18:00 jcamins That comes with the packages.
18:00 jcamins Package install, right?

18:01 jcamins !!
18:02 jcamins Sidelooking airborne radar? Who catalogs radar?
18:02 kf it's for the fernerkundungsbilder :P
18:02 magnuse kf: is that something you are meant to create marc records for?
18:03 kf I am quite sure ourl ibraries will never use that...
18:03 magnuse but then again, you never know ;-)
18:03 magnuse jcamins: thanks for trying ;-)

18:09 wizzyrea having the other stuff is cool too of course, but that is REALLY helpful
18:09 wizzyrea numbers are per library?
18:09 wizzyrea or branch specific?
18:09 chris_n googleing "kaha trademark" is getting interesting
18:09 wizzyrea let me rephrase - numbers are for the logged in branch? or systemwide
18:10 oleonard Comments and tags are not recorded with branch information as far as I know
18:10 wizzyrea *nod* cool
18:10 chris_n kf: thinking of adding a new tool to koha?
18:10 chris_n ie SLAR?

18:38 oleonard he trademark that serves the best interests of the libraries who use Koha.
18:38 oleonard They've got a funny way of encouraging direct dialog
18:38 wizzyrea !

18:42 rangi yes

18:46 wizzyrea that is a better plan
18:46 rangi its a tactic to try to stall objections
18:46 wizzyrea yea no, go ahead with the objections
18:46 wizzyrea it's still objectionable
18:46 wizzyrea imo
18:47 rangi did the community already vote
18:47 rangi and say hlt hold community property
18:47 wizzyrea yep

18:54 mtj 'LibLime, by virtue of its donation of intellectual assets to the Koha Software Foundation and its standing as a major contributor would expect permanent representation on its board of directors.

21:32 ibeardslee I just give people a "My little Ponies" desktop wallpaper
21:32 rangi
21:33 wizzyrea when I worked in desktop support for students at my uni, sometimes we'd get guys bringing in their computer with pictures that were... how to say... inappropriate
21:33 wizzyrea so I'd have to work on these computers
21:33 chrisdothall rangi: fanastic
21:34 wizzyrea I'd always change the desktop to pictures of kittens and leave them a note: I changed the desktop to a different pussy, hope you don't mind.
21:34 rangi heh

22:11 ibeardslee I think John Key is in cahoots with PTFS/Liblime to take the media attention away from the teapottapes
22:11 eythian heh
22:12 rangi!/obelos/[…]39460851756302337
22:13 wizzyrea wow that's snarktastic.
22:14 * wizzyrea notes "twitter for iPhone" realizes he's probably not so keen on the idea of "open"
22:14 wizzyrea *shrug* his loss.
22:15 ibeardslee you'd be surprised (or maybe not) the number of 'open geeks' that go for the macbooks/iphones etc
22:15 wizzyrea nah, i'm not
22:15 rangi wizzyrea: yeah well we didnt really expect ptfs/liblime meant it eh?
22:16 wizzyrea nope
22:16 eythian[…]9798&cid=38149840
22:16 wizzyrea yea saw that one. Weasely.

22:18 ibeardslee to me, it seems that there is some evolution (in a very short time) of PTFS' stance
22:19 magnuse YES fixed it - was a missing "Koha to MARC Mapping" for items.itemnumber. feels like i should have found that way earlier. thanks to everyone who tried to help
22:19 magnuse community++
22:19 rangi :)
22:19 rangi ahh yeah that would do it

22:25 slef how many % of the vote will PTFS try to get this time?
22:32 maximep left #koha
22:32 wizzyrea nice eythian
22:34 wizzyrea slef: if the press release is a stalling tactic, we hope joann won't fall for it. If it isn't and they transfer the TM to the US foundation instead of HLT, that sucks but they're still the bad guy. If they transfer the TM to HLT, that's pretty great.
22:34 slef wizzyrea: actually, other comments say HLT, so maybe it could be great
22:34 wizzyrea *nod*
22:35 wizzyrea that's what I'm hoping for
22:35 slef I just had that sinking feeling reading the PR, that we were back in 2010(?)
22:35 eythian slef: agreed
22:35 wizzyrea right, well we've (community) already voted and agreed that HLT is the trustee for the IP assets
22:36 wizzyrea that's a done, documented deal
22:36 wizzyrea anything they do that doesn't involve HLT is against us
22:36 eythian the apparent about-face of attitude from clay in those comments is interesting.
22:36 wizzyrea *nod*

23:42 wizzyrea i thought so
23:43 wizzyrea[…]its-own-trademark
23:46 rangi thats a fairly decent summary
23:46 wizzyrea eventually we'll need to update the plea with latest developments and possibly links to the coverage
23:46 wizzyrea but i'm not really comfortable with updating joann's post myself
23:47 wizzyrea also there are lots of nice comments on the blog that could use a response
23:49 rangi she wont be able to today, i think its community property you can update, just sign it
