00:13 chris_n jcamins: according to the man page, 'git show --oneline committish' will, but it does not appear to in practice
00:13 ronald joined #koha
00:13 jcamins chris_n: git show --summary committish worked.
00:14 chris_n cool
00:31 jcamins Well, that was horrifyingly painful.
00:32 jcamins However, 3.6-testing is now up-to-date.
00:33 jcamins_away 533 patches reviewed in the last couple of hours.

07:30 cait bonjour paul_p
08:29 hdl cait: magnuse: it seems really strange for french libraries (and there are some which are using koha) that when no rule defined or no quantity defined, rule is meant to be unlimited. Have you had any question about that ?
08:30 cait hm no
08:30 cait I only showed that in presentations mostly, because we do the configuration for the libraries
08:31 cait what I don't like is the mix
08:31 cait maxreserves empty means = 0
08:31 magnuse no questions, no
08:31 cait and max checkouts empty is unlimited
08:31 magnuse seems kind of natural to me, but that might just be me
08:31 cait it seems natural to me that unlimited is null, 0 should be 0
08:31 cait not only you :)

10:46 cait vkm: no, sorry.
10:47 vkm ok, one thing more hold limit is taking from system preference rather than circulation policy limits
10:48 cait yes, that's a known problem
10:48 cait try a bugzilla search for maxreserves
10:49 vkm can you tell me how to apply patches as i am new to koha
10:52 vfernandes joined #koha
10:52 vfernandes hi guys
10:53 vfernandes yesterday i was here to ask about searching by record date creation... i finally managed to do that :) but another problem appeared... i can't search by date/time-last-modified
10:55 slef wahanui: patches?
10:55 wahanui patches are on the bug
10:55 slef wahanui: git?
10:55 wahanui hmmm... git is[…]Control_Using_Git
10:55 slef vkm: see[…]Control_Using_Git
10:58 vfernandes any help here?
11:02 asaurat joined #koha
11:06 slef vfernandes: I suspect that - at best - it depends if you are searching from the catalogue interface or the reports one and on your local index configuration. If you are running the defaults, I can have a look.
11:07 cait slef: going to do the summary when on the train later
11:07 slef cait: cool. Thanks. Big help. I've various other kohacon mails to answer, on top of more work than I can do.
11:07 vfernandes slef I'm using the catalogue interface
11:08 vfernandes[…]ied%3D2012&limit=
11:08 cait slef: I know the feeling - keep moving
11:10 slef there may be datelastseen: and datelastborrowed: but I'm not sure what you mean by last modified
11:10 vfernandes melm 099$d      Date/time-last-modified
11:11 vfernandes last modified is the last date that the record had one modification
11:11 slef mmmm... that'll be the time the biblio was last modded and assuming someone or something updates that field
11:13 slef I don't see it in Administration › Koha to MARC mapping, which is where I expect it would be if Koha was auto-updating it.
11:13 vfernandes the database is automatically updated but the 099 field don't... there is a script that updates the field auto
11:13 slef should one Connect biblio.timestamp to a MARC subfield I wonder
11:14 slef oh well sounds like you already know more than me about this subject, sorry.
11:14 vfernandes and it is... to 099$d
11:14 slef not on mine. Are you UNIMARC?
11:15 vfernandes yes... when i search for "Date/time-last-modified=2012" the Koha searches for “kw,wrdl: Date/time-last-modified=2012 ” which is wrong
11:17 NateC joined #koha
11:18 vfernandes on I uncommented the following line: Date/time-last-modified       1=1012
11:19 vfernandes i've restarted the zebra server but i can't search for that index :/

11:32 fabio_t joined #koha
11:33 fabio_t Hi everybody
11:47 nengard joined #koha
11:51 fabio_t I'm working on a UNIMARC customization for older monographic publications (antiquarian), and I need to link a child record to a parent one. Analytics work well only if the parent has an item attached. I can't use "Link to host item" because parent has to not have any item (nor barcode) attached and the new, amazing enhancement from bug 6831 seems to not solve my problem. Please, I need some advice/help! Thank you in advance.
11:51 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=6831 enhancement, P2, ---, colin.campbell, Pushed to Master , Enhanced Workflow for adding analytical records
11:52 collum joined #koha
11:54 fabio_t Forgot to say... I'm using Koha 3.8 packages and enhancement 6831 allows to create a child from a parent. I've even tried to link records by manually editing them, both on parent side (UNIMARC 461) and child side (UNIMARC 463)
11:58 fabio_t I have not tried with default framework though. Could it be framework-specific? Going to try right now
12:00 asaurat does someone know what we're supposed to have as a format for Due Dates ? I've seen "DD-MM-YYYY 00:00" and "DD-MM-YYYY 23:59" !
12:02 cait asaurat: perhaps try reading the online help - I remember translating something about that
12:02 cait I think one is for hourly loans and one indicates a normal loan - but I am not sure which is what and I am not too happy about it in general
12:02 cait I think the time should only show for hourly loans
12:03 asaurat yep, me too
12:04 asaurat I forgot about this hourly loan thing... don't know how it works yet
12:09 francharb joined #koha

12:34 druthb I'm very excited.  Also jittery.
12:35 cait oleonard: can you tell her please to stop the jittering?
12:35 cait she won't listen to me!
12:35 * oleonard hands druthb a bowling ball to weigh her down
12:36 druthb :P
12:36 hdl fabio_t: as far as i know, links are not framework related.

12:39 vkm joined #koha
12:40 vkm what is the most important point which i should always keep in mind so that the books issue record can not be loss in koha implementation
12:49 oleonard julian_m: How would translation work under Bug 8044?
12:49 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8044 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, julian.maurice, ASSIGNED , Localization for Perl scripts and modules
12:50 oleonard Does the bug only address strings which are in Perl?
12:51 julian_m oleonard, hi! it would use Locale::Maketext, and atm it only address strings in Perl yes... what other kind of string you are thinking about?
12:51 oleonard I just wondered if it changed how we handle templates
12:52 druthb strings in the templates, strings in the mysql data (like descriptions in the marc frameworks, etc)...  *tons* of other places to cope with.  But this will help, yah.
12:52 julian_m oleonard, I'm currently submitting the patch, once it's done we can look at it and talk about it if you want
12:53 jcamins_away Woohoo!
12:53 * druthb would throw her hat into that discussion, as well.
12:53 jcamins_away What's Jonathan Druart's nick?

12:54 Joubu hello all
12:54 vkm what precaustion should we adopt to avoid circulation data loss and it could be retrived at any time
12:55 jcamins_away Joubu++
12:55 jcamins_away I guess that answers my question. :)
12:55 oleonard vkm: Back up your Koha database regularly
12:55 oleonard vkm: All your data is there
12:56 vkm i am new to koha but ready to use after migration of data from ms access to koha much eager to implement it in our organisation but afraid of data loss
12:57 jcamins_away vkm: in that case you should establish a backup regimen.
12:58 vkm my concern is mainly circulation data so advice what to do and without any risk i can use it
12:59 oleonard vkm: Since circulation data is part of your MySQL database, you should research strategies for backing up MySQL
12:59 druthb vkm:  If you've figured out how to migrate the data to Koha, there's not much to worry about after that, at least not specifically to circ data.  Protect the MySQL data--don't give anyone write access except Koha itself, and make backups.
13:00 jcamins_away vkm: Take backups. You're not really going to get any other advice, because the way one avoids losing data is keeping backups.
13:00 * jcamins_away heads into the city.
13:00 vkm i am using readymade koha cd it backup data also very well ourly basis so is that sufficient
13:01 druthb Should be, yah.
13:01 druthb daily is probably sufficient--hourly is nice.
13:01 Joubu jcamins_away: what do you ++ ? :)
13:03 jcamins_away Joubu: 7249. :)
13:06 julian_m oleonard, patches attached, one for the new module and po file, and the other is a test case (translate csv columns headers in
13:12 oleonard asaurat: I don't have the problem described in Bug 8045
13:12 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8045 normal, P2, ---, adrien.saurat, ASSIGNED , Problems on Due date when checking in
13:13 oleonard I see the date due, not today's date
13:13 asaurat gaetan_B, laurence and I saw it, maybe it didn't explain well
13:13 asaurat that's only after a checkin, not on the member detail pages
13:14 gaetan_B and i think this is only the case when the document is late
13:14 gaetan_B also it's not today's date but tomorrow's
13:14 druthb julian_m: your patch for bug 8044 looks really nice... I look forward to testing it in the next few days.
13:14 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8044 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, julian.maurice, Needs Signoff , Localization for Perl scripts and modules
13:14 asaurat yes, my description was bad indeed -_-
13:17 oleonard Here's what I see (and keep in mind these dates are MM/DD/YYYY)
13:18 julian_m druthb, thanks :) don't hesitate to make suggestions on the code... or anything else ;)
13:19 druthb julian_m: Translation is a huge puzzle, with several fairly-complex pieces, and this is one I'd not thought about much.  This could solve that part of the problem very handily.
13:20 asaurat oleonard: how can you have these (overdue) warnings ?! I don't have that
13:20 fabio_t I've to go
13:20 fabio_t bye
13:21 fabio_t have a nice we
13:21 fabio_t :)
13:21 oleonard asaurat: I thought that was how Koha always worked :)
13:21 asaurat gaetan_B: can you watch the screenshot sent by owen ? do you have such overdue warnings ?
13:22 gaetan_B asaurat: i just tested it again and i don't :-/

14:33 cait jcamins: poor magnuse - so much input! :)
14:34 magnus_afk hehe
14:34 magnus_afk well download isnt all that interesting i think
14:34 magnus_afk good sparql endpoints and easily slurpable linked data on the other hand...
14:34 magnus_afk and CC0 would have been even better
14:35 jcamins Yeah, CC0 would've been a lot better.
14:35 jcamins But with the data available for download, one could conceivably make the linked data easily slurpable.
14:36 jcamins Or more-easily slurpable, at least.
14:37 * wizzyrea waves
14:38 magnus_afk viaf has good linked data already, methinks
14:38 * magnus_afk waves back
14:38 druthb hi, wizzyrea! :)
14:39 jcamins magnus_afk: when I'd been looking at it, there didn't seem to be any way to make use of it if you didn't have the VIAF id.
14:39 magnus_afk yeah, thats the hard part - how to get at the good identifiers in the first place
14:39 oleonard First FF crash of the day: 10:38 AM.
14:40 jcamins magnus_afk: my thought is that with the downloadable data it would be feasible to have a lookup service.
14:41 * cait waves at wizzyrea and oleonard
14:43 magnus_afk jcamins: seen ?
14:43 wahanui I haven't seen '', magnus_afk
14:43 * oleonard lobbies everyone to vote for his wife's student's work:[…]/vote.html#d=d5-8
14:43 magnus_afk well, maybe you should wahanui
14:44 oleonard ...although the giant octopus fighting vikings is really good.
14:44 jcamins magnus_afk: are you allowed to use that programmatically?
14:45 magnus_afk jcamins: i have not tried but i think so, based on this:[…]uris-in-viaf.html
14:45 magnus_afk " In fact, you too could build an interface to VIAF which replicates (or improves!) the current Web browser interface you see at"
14:46 jcamins magnus_afk: hm. I thought somewhere in their license they stipulated that you weren't allowed to develop against VIAF.
14:46 jcamins I looked a while ago, though.
14:47 jcamins (against the query API)
14:48 * magnus_afk has no idea :-)
14:52 * magnus_afk takes the dogs for a walk

15:41 vfernandes ok thanks jcamins...
15:41 jcamins You're welcome.
15:43 jcamins It's too bad you can't convince your clients to think about upgrading, at least to 3.6... lots of great new features.

16:01 gaetan_B oleonard: i guess that means you have a branch where the problem is fixed ?
16:02 oleonard gaetan_B: An older revision I was looking at the other day
16:02 jcamins oleonard: time to pull out the git bisect?
16:02 oleonard Yup
16:03 gaetan_B so that would be a regression in 3.8 ?
16:04 oleonard Yes
16:05 jcamins Argh. I just realized I neglected to sign off on the commits I cherry-picked for 3.6-testing
16:05 francharb bye all
16:08 jcamins Guess I'll be learning how to use git filter-branch.

17:46 jcamins chris_n: have you read about popcorn?
17:47 jcamins (it's an enhanced video player tool thing)
17:48 jcamins Seems like it might be up your alley.

17:54 chris_n especially w/butter
17:57 chris_n jcamins: this => ?
17:57 jcamins chris_n: I didn't actually look into it at all, I just read a description.
17:58 chris_n looks interesting
17:58 jcamins But that's probably what I just read about.
17:58 * chris_n imagines koha streaming its own media content :-)
17:59 jcamins chris_n: I thought you might be intrigued.

18:08 jcamins mib_hm8bip: you can use the software MarcEdit to convert from CSV to MARC21, I think.
18:08 jcamins However, this is a Koha channel not a MarcEdit channel, so I don't think there's anyone here who can explain. ;)
18:08 jcamins You could also write your own script to do it.

18:12 jcamins However, this is a Koha channel not a MarcEdit channel, so I don't think there's anyone here who can explain. ;)

19:25 Adalberto I have installed koha but when i try to create a barcode labels using BIBBAR it does not print the barcode
19:26 Adalberto I have a test enviroment where i can do this but in the production enviroment i cannot print the barcode
19:26 Adalberto using the same configuration
19:26 Adalberto could anybody help me?
19:26 * oleonard doesn't know about label printing
19:27 Adalberto ok, thank you oleonard
19:28 jcamins Maybe you're missing a dependency? You could check in the About Koha page to see if there are any Perl modules missing.
19:29 Adalberto I have run this perl -m -u, and it says that there is not dependency missing
19:29 jcamins Well, I guess that's not it then.
19:30 jcamins I don't know anything about label printing, either.
19:31 Adalberto I have installed on Debian
