04:27 huginn rangi: Quote #161: "* wizzyrea prefers pricks" (added by kf at 02:18 PM, October 18, 2011)
04:27 rangi Wtf
04:28 eythian heh
04:29 eythian darn it, master won't build without moose.
04:46 libsysguy rangi maybe wizzyrea meant the umlaut
04:46 libsysguy moose is required? since when?
04:50 eythian libsysguy: since Koha::SearchEngine was put in.
04:52 libsysguy I thought rangi swore till his dying day that Moose would never make it in :p
04:52 eythian I tend to agree, but it's there.
04:52 eythian It also concerns me that no one is testing it in a clean environment.
04:52 libsysguy I was wondering about that
04:52 eythian so they don't notice when dependencies are missing.
04:53 libsysguy I thought jcamins was testing it at some point
04:53 libsysguy and there was a module he needed from cpan
04:53 eythian (the package build process makes a chroot and ensures that only the stuff listed as a dependency is installed)
04:54 libsysguy well that is certainly nice for package users
04:54 eythian so tests pass or fail based on that.
04:55 eythian it's not nice for me when I have to add dependencies because the people who were supposed to didn't :)
04:55 * libsysguy zips his lips
04:55 eythian :)
04:56 Oak joined #koha
04:58 rangi Jcamins tested 3.6.x in clean
05:00 rangi We both gave up trying to get the solr stuff working with the debian packaged version of moose
05:01 rangi Course neither of us are rm for 3.10
05:02 libsysguy rangi 3.14
05:02 libsysguy rangi for 3.14
05:02 libsysguy kind of has a ring to it
05:02 rangi Like hell
05:03 libsysguy I wish it wasn't the dead of night so I could laugh harder
05:04 wajasu lol
05:06 eythian rangi for pi!
05:06 eythian Oh look, another test requiring the db
05:06 * eythian grumbles
05:08 wajasu this moose showing up is surprising to me.
05:09 eythian odd, I can't find what class it is that's the problem here.
05:09 libsysguy really wajasu?
05:11 wajasu well, i thougth i remember jcamins saying it might be too heavyweight.
05:11 eythian it is, it shouldn't be there.
05:11 eythian It will slow pageloads on a CGI setup quite a bit apparently
05:11 wajasu did you run Search.t
05:12 eythian who?
05:13 wajasu you.  does a test use moose?  or did you find it elsewhere?
05:13 eythian if me, no. It's in db_dependent, which is skipped by default.
05:13 eythian Oh
05:13 eythian No, the 00-load function caught it
05:13 eythian s/function/test/
05:14 eythian it tried to load Koha::SearchEngine, which failed due to no moose
05:15 eythian oddly, the stuff that's failing now is jcamins_away's code, which shouldn't have this issue.
05:18 wajasu i was hoping to get lxc contianers running, so the build server would catch this stuff.  well someday,
05:18 * magnuse shouts KIA ORA at the top of his lungs
05:19 wajasu oh. wait.
05:19 eythian funny, it came out as kai øra
05:20 magnuse :-)
05:21 wajasu i seem to recal that jcamins said somehting about something using some dependency, if you have it.  could the Moose be optional?
05:21 eythian I don't know
05:22 eythian assuming that Koha::SearchEngine is used somewhere, it will require Moose.
05:23 eythian I cannot see why this would end up loading C4/Context.
05:23 eythian very confusing
05:23 rangi its only used if you have solr enabled in your sysprefs
05:26 eythian ahh
05:26 eythian OK, not it makes sense why that test needs the database.
05:26 eythian *now
05:33 magnuse on this day in 2010: second leg of The Road Trip, from Rotorua to Wellington - happy times!
05:43 eythian that was a while ago now
05:43 magnuse eythian++
05:43 * magnuse just did a very smooth upgrade from 3.8.5 to 3.8.6
05:43 eythian awesome :)
05:46 magnuse it's kind of cool to send a collective email to customers that says "upgrade starts now", and then 5 minutes later "upgrade done" :-)
05:46 eythian heh yeah :)
05:47 magnuse and getting the odd reply of "that was quick"
05:48 eythian even better :)
05:49 magnuse brings back that first kick of realizing how awesome the packages are :-)
05:50 eythian yay, all tests passed. Now I should be able to make a build of master.
05:50 eythian <-- a Delorean just left Tawa at 88mph
05:51 magnuse :-)
05:51 magnuse hard to tell if it is the rails or the fence burning?
05:51 eythian not sure
05:52 eythian rails
05:52 eythian otherwise the person standing beside it is a) tiny and b) standing on the fence
05:53 magnuse :-)
05:53 magnuse a tiny person standing on a burning fence - that may be commonplace in nz for all i know ;-)
05:54 eythian You're thinking of Ireland perhaps
05:56 magnuse ah, maybe
05:56 magnuse leprechauns?
05:56 eythian yeah
06:03 eythian Result: PASS
06:03 eythian Finally!
06:04 laurence joined #koha
06:06 magnuse w00t!
06:07 eythian hmm, there's one more package than I expected
06:07 eythian oh, no.
06:07 eythian That's OK
06:07 eythian there's now 'koha-deps' and 'koha-perldeps'
06:08 magnuse ah, to make installing the dependencies easier?
06:08 eythian jup
06:09 eythian squeeze-dev|main|i386: koha 3.9-1~git+20121024185600.56af4ece

06:09 eythian squeeze-dev|main|i386: koha-perldeps 3.9-1~git+20121024185600.56af4ece
06:09 eythian yay!
06:09 * eythian uploads
06:10 magnuse but only for the master packages?
06:10 eythian yeah
06:11 eythian it's designed to be used to make development easier
06:11 eythian also, it's only in master
06:11 magnuse ah, ok
06:11 magnuse does anyone ever use the koha package?
06:11 eythian I hope not
06:12 eythian I'd really like to get it fixed up some time, providing a default install.
06:12 eythian But there's a fair bit to do before that'll work.
06:12 magnuse ah, ok
06:12 rangi yep, thats pretty much the last bit that needs to be done before we can get a DD to sponsor it for inclusion in debian proper
06:13 eythian also double checking that all our deps are licensed.
06:13 rangi yep
06:13 magnuse any reason why anyone would want to use that compared to using koha-common and just adding one instance?
06:13 eythian magnuse: just making it easier, really
06:13 rangi magnuse: thats essentially what it would do
06:14 eythian First I'd like to have an overhaul of debconf related things, so that all the things you have to put in koha-sites are asked on installation, for example.
06:14 rangi *nod*
06:14 magnuse ooh, that would be cool
06:15 eythian need to figure out how to make it backwards compatible, too.

08:48 gerundio good morning all
08:48 gerundio are the MARC Framework fields translated via the po files?
08:53 gaetan_B gerundio: no, i think it's a specific sql file
08:54 gerundio hmm, ok
08:54 gerundio I see that our MARK frameworks are all in Portuguese
08:55 gaetan_B gerundio: look in src/installer/data/mysql
08:55 gerundio and I'm getting this unexpecteded behavior
08:55 gaetan_B for you i guess it will be pl-PL
08:55 gerundio I've exported them from my colleague's dev koha setup
08:55 gerundio pt-PT :p
08:56 gerundio Portugal != Poland
08:56 gerundio and after I imported it in my own koha installation, the "Default framework" is showing some incomplete fields
08:56 gaetan_B ah right, then it means i don't have it on my install, i don't know where your file would come from
08:57 gaetan_B maybe there is no such file for portuguese in the distribution yet
08:58 gaetan_B gerundio: hmm i remember struggling quite a lot with the import tool a few months back
08:58 gaetan_B i think it hade to do with character encoding, but i'm not too sure. I'm afraid i won't be able to help much here...
08:58 gerundio the weird thing is that it only happens for field names with punctuation
08:59 gerundio for instance I have this field for "Língua do documento", which stands for "Document language"
08:59 gerundio after the import I only get "L"
09:00 gerundio everything after the 1st accentuated character is deleted
09:02 gerundio gaetan_B, has this ever happened to you?
09:02 cait joined #koha
09:03 gaetan_B gerundio: yes this is exactly what i had, which was due to encoding problems
09:03 gaetan_B try to see which encoding is the file you're trying to import
09:03 gaetan_B and convert it to utf-8
09:03 gerundio hmm, the weirdest part is it only happens for the Default MARC framework
09:09 gerundio I converted it to utf-8 and the result was far from the expected
09:09 gerundio the framework remained empty
09:17 Maxie2012 joined #koha
09:18 Maxie2012 Hi!
09:21 Maxie2012 Am planning to sign up with a server hosting service and need to pick a server plan (am considering as recommended by you guys!).
09:22 magnuse Maxie2012: just for testing or for real use?
09:23 Maxie2012 It needs to be sufficient for me to install the latest version of Koha with Perl, Apache etc. - I am looking to test Koha and do some customisation work on it
09:24 magnuse i would try the smallest size then, you can resize it later if that is too small
09:24 magnuse unless you don't have to worry about the money, of course :-)
09:24 Maxie2012 ...basically want to setup a development/test environment AND a production environment
09:25 Maxie2012 money is always a worry....:(
09:25 magnuse have you considered using e.g. virtualbox for dev/testing?
09:25 magnuse then you would have a virtual machine running inside your real machine, for free
09:26 magnuse and you could mess around with it as much as you want and just wipe it and start fresh
09:26 drojf +1 for testing locally with virtual machines. you don't need to pay a server for that
09:26 drojf and good day #koha
09:27 magnuse hiya drojf
09:27 Maxie2012 meaning?  Sorry...I'm really, really new to working in a web environment, know extremely little about infrastructure and what more to say Koha (except for what I saw in the demo)...
09:28 magnuse Maxie2012:
09:28 magnuse if you install that you can run "virtual machines" on your computer - you can log in to them much the same way you can with a server
09:29 magnuse it will only be available to you, though
09:29 Maxie2012 the thing is I don't have a Linux server right now & I'm not keen to try and install Linux into my Window 7 desktop...
09:30 magnuse virtualbox makes that easy and painless :-)
09:30 Maxie2012 ...unless you think someone who is a Linux dummy could manage it.....?
09:30 drojf Maxie2012: the point is, you dont need to
09:30 drojf you run linux in the virtual machine on top of whatever operating system you use
09:30 magnuse well, if you do not have much experience with linux i would definitely recommend starting out with virtualbox
09:31 drojf it does not mess up your windows 7 in any way
09:31 magnuse having some experience with linux before you start operating a publicly avialable serverer is good :-)
09:31 magnuse you install virtualbox and then you can run linux "inside" virtualbox
09:32 Maxie2012 how/where do I start?
09:32 magnuse so anything you do in linux will not affect windows, because virtualbox acts as a "protective layer" between them
09:32 magnuse
09:33 magnuse the one that says "VirtualBox 4.2.2 for Windows hosts"
09:34 gerundio then just choose a Linux distribution to go with it
09:34 gerundio what are you guys recommending, debian?
09:34 magnuse definitely debian, yes
09:35 Maxie2012 so I install VirtualBox first and then it installs the Debian Squeeze?
09:35 gerundio you have to do it
09:35 magnuse you have to download debian and run through a wizard in virtualbox to install it inside virtualbox
09:35 gerundio I couldn't find any tutorial for installing debian, but here's one for ubuntu
09:35 gerundio
09:36 gerundio just replace ubuntu for debian and I think you'll manage
09:36 gerundio the process should be pretty straight forward
09:38 Maxie2012 oh I see...
09:39 gerundio it can be a little overwhelming :)
09:40 gerundio gaetan_B, any additional ideas regarding that MARC framework import/export issue?
09:40 gaetan_B gerundio: i'm in a meeting sorry
09:40 Maxie2012 you reckon even for someone who knows NOTHING about Linux or working with setting up operating systems should be able to handle this right....?
09:40 gerundio gaetan_B, no problem :)
09:40 drojf Maxie2012: as far as you are willing to learn… :)
09:41 gerundio Maxie2012, drojf is right... it all depends on how far you're willing to go to get the necessary skills
09:41 gerundio we've all been there :D
09:42 drojf the biggest part of it is the koha installation itself which is fairly easy with packages. the networking stuff may be the biggest problem before
09:42 Maxie2012 SURE!  I'm definitely willing to learn....problem is I have timelines to do all of you out there I'm sure...
09:44 Maxie2012 ...and I guess I worry that I'm getting into something bigger than I can handle...!
09:47 Maxie2012 I also wanted to check (AGAIN!) where I can download the Koha packages for the different versions of Linux?
09:49 drojf Maxie2012: you do that from within debian
09:49 drojf it has a package managing system for your software
09:50 drojf to install and update stuff. you will never crawl webpages manually to download new versions and install by hand as you may be used from windows
09:50 drojf packages?
09:50 wahanui packages is at
09:50 drojf ^^ have a look at that
09:50 gerundio even better:[…]on_Debian_Squeeze
09:50 gerundio right, drojf?
09:50 drojf gerundio: mine forwards to yours :)
09:50 gerundio lolol
09:51 gerundio well played
09:53 vfernandes joined #koha
09:53 Maxie2012 so once I have my virtualbox installed, I need to go into the virtualbox and then download the Koha and install it....did I get that right?
09:54 drojf Maxie2012: 1) install virtualbox itself 2) install debian in a virtual machine in debian 3) check the link we just gave you for installation of koha
09:54 vfernandes hi guys
09:54 drojf narf. point 2) install debian in a virtual machine in virtualbox
09:54 vfernandes i'm having one problem with Koha user permissions
09:54 gerundio hi vfernandes
09:55 vfernandes I have a user that has permissions to access the staff client but it's always saying "Unauthorized user"
09:56 Maxie2012 ok, think I got it
09:56 vfernandes even if I put "superlibrarian" permissions the user can't enter
09:56 vfernandes what's wrong :/
09:56 Maxie2012 Will give it it a go and will DEFINITELY need to come back for more assistance!
09:57 gerundio vfernandes, which koha version are you using?
09:57 gerundio I just did the exact same thing in 3.8 and everything worked as expected
09:57 vfernandes 3.2.6 but it's working for another users
09:59 vfernandes now it's working
10:00 drojf vfernandes: that user is not the database user you are only supposed to use for updates by any chance?
10:01 drojf nevermind i was not reading closely. my question does not make sense :)
10:04 vfernandes oh my god... now it works
10:06 drojf maybe the permissions just had to sink in :)
10:06 gerundio I vote on jet lag
10:06 drojf lol
10:07 gerundio from the trip client to server and back :D
10:14 Guillaume38 joined #koha
10:18 Guillaume38 left #koha
10:20 gerundio drojf, I don't know if you were here when I discussed a MARC framework import/export issue I'm experiencing
10:21 gerundio have you ever had problems with this koha feature?
10:21 drojf i don't think so. what is your problem?
10:25 gerundio I've exported the default MARK framework from a koha 3.8 setup to a CVS file and imported it back into another koha 3.8 installation
10:26 gerundio the field names are in Portuguese, which means that a lot of them have ponctuation
10:26 gerundio for instance I have this field for "Língua do documento", which stands for "Document language"
10:26 gerundio after the import I only get "L"
10:26 gerundio everything after the 1st accentuated character is deleted
10:26 wahanui i already had it that way, gerundio.
10:26 gerundio wahanui, how did you solve it?
10:26 wahanui gerundio: wish i knew
10:27 drojf lol
10:27 drojf wahanui is a bot
10:27 gerundio lolol
10:28 gerundio the weirdest part of it is that this only happens for the default framework
10:28 drojf looks like some encoding problem. have you tried exporting as sql?
10:28 gerundio I've tried converting the file to utf-8 and import in afterwards
10:28 gerundio that resulted in an empty framework
10:29 drojf i vaguely remember that i used sql because i was unsatisfied with csv. don't remember why
10:29 gerundio does the import feature work with SQL too?
10:29 drojf or was it the other way round? lol. sorry for spreading disinformation, really not sure
10:30 gerundio it mentions "Spreadsheet file"
10:30 drojf i think it doesnt
10:30 gerundio both the CSV and the SQL file seem to have the correct info
10:31 drojf i just remembered that. and i think i actually had problems with the sql because it did not include everything i would have needed to insert it properly into the db. but i'm really not sure, it was quite some time ago. i think i did not takes notes about that
10:31 drojf no encoding issues in any way
10:32 drojf but i am not sure if replacing the default framework is really supported. everything else relies on that
10:34 gerundio nice to know about that
10:34 gerundio I'm walking on quicksands here
10:37 drojf interesting question actually if it is supported. maybe one of the wise old koha people can answer that.
10:37 drojf also, why would you want to import the default framework anyway?
10:37 gerundio looks like wise old koha people are still not around
10:38 gerundio drojf, because my colleague changed it too
10:38 drojf do not change the default framework
10:38 gerundio I'm walking on his footsteps
10:38 cait drojf: yes, but if it#s too late... :)
10:38 drojf make a copy, change that
10:38 cait gerundio: it should be possible to delete and recreate it from the sql
10:38 drojf cait: its not for tnhe new installation :)
10:38 cait i did it in he past when I wanted to add german translations
10:39 cait I did it in our production systems too - but as we are not modifying the frameworks much at all, it was probably safer
10:40 gerundio he built this koha setup with some amount of customization... with manual SQL injection and source code changes along the way
10:40 drojf i'm actually not really sure if our default framework was changed ;)
10:40 drojf gerundio: bad. problems all around
10:40 drojf as you see ;)
10:40 drojf cait: how is that vacation business going? :)
10:41 cait quite nicely so far  :)
10:41 gerundio I'm now working to build our production environment, but my skills are mostly technical, I don't really know the library language
10:41 gerundio all this is new for me
10:42 drojf gerundio: you will get used to it :)
10:42 drojf even MARC. to a certain point :D
10:43 gerundio I'm know seeing a demo koha setup for a fellow Portuguese library
10:44 gerundio and they changed the default framework too
10:46 gerundio to revert it back to the original value I would only have to delete every record in 'marc_tag_structure' and 'marc_subfield_structure' tables whose 'frameworkcode' value = ''
10:47 gerundio and then import "installer/data/mysql/en/marcflavour/unim​arc/mandatory/unimarc_framework_DEFAULT.sql" back, right?
10:48 gerundio btw, fyi, the SQL import on the default framework works as expected
10:49 gerundio we really need to ear from the koha elders about this default framework spreadsheet import :|
10:50 cait I don't know if the elders have an answer for you about this
10:50 cait the spreadsheet import is not an old feature
10:50 cait it might be that you just have to test and compare results
10:51 cait and then document somewhere, if there are problems
10:51 cait or if it works, so the next person doesn't have to figure out on their own
10:51 drojf is there a list of all third party stuff available in koha and other potentionally privacy invasive features?
10:53 mtj gerundio, probably best to email your question to the koha-devel list
10:54 magnuse drojf: have a look at the sysprefs?
10:55 magnuse drojf: specifically the "Enhanced content" section
10:55 cait drojf: hm not that I know of - what are you thinking about? the enhanced content, reading lists and stuff like that?
10:55 drojf magnuse: yes that is the backup plan
10:56 drojf cait: yes, i guess most is in enhanced content, but there may be more. i guess i will go through all sysprefs then
10:57 cait yeah
10:57 cait showing the name of the reviewer is another i thnk
10:57 drojf i wonder how much enthusiasm there will be for what i will be proposing ;)
10:57 cait then reading lists, opac privacy settings
10:57 cait i don't know what you will propose, but I fear it has to do with german privacy laws
10:58 cait but I will be grateful if I don't have to be the one :)
10:58 magnuse hehe
10:58 gaetan_B i have a library here telling me that the AWS terms of use have changed some months ago and that only private companies are now allowed to use the service, meaning that libraries are not allowed anymore to fetch cover images on the fly using AWS, have you heard this before ?
10:58 gaetan_B i have a hard time believing it and will probably get in touch with amazon to figure this out, but thought i'd ask here first
10:59 drojf it will not have to do with german privacy laws specifically, more like what i would call fairness and transparency towards your patrons. but it will probably look pretty german ;)
10:59 cait they have changed something, that was the reason all the other features have been removed
10:59 cait I am not sure about covers - I think we kept that, but not sure about the terms
10:59 cait drojf: someone has to spoil the fun... better it not being me :P
11:00 drojf lol
11:00 magnuse bug 8679
11:00 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8679 normal, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, Pushed to Master , Remove usage of Amazon API
11:01 drojf ah yes i remember the amazon stuff vanishing from the files while i was working on the html5 audio video stuff
11:02 gerundio is there any form to import authorized values in koha?
11:02 drojf i don't think so
11:03 magnuse gerundio: i've never seen one
11:03 gerundio btw, just had the urge to google for "authorised vs authorized"
11:04 drojf ? one is AE and the other BE suppose
11:04 cait be vs. ae
11:04 cait british english vs american english I think
11:04 gerundio yeap
11:05 drojf well, cutting them out of the old db and injecting them into the new one of course. in case you make up an sql query for that you are already half done with developing an enhancement patch for this ;)
11:07 gerundio so I assume the person responsible for creating the DB table is British and the one responsible for the admin UI is American :D
11:07 gerundio drojf, manual SQL injection is always a no no for me
11:07 gerundio but I guess I don't really have a choice on this one
11:08 drojf well, recreate the authorized values manually is always possible
11:08 drojf depending on how many you have that may take some time though
11:08 gerundio I have nearly 900 records
11:09 vfernandes joined #koha
11:09 gerundio so I think I'll strike manual insertion from the options
11:09 gerundio btw, the default koha installation has 2 values on that table for a YES_NO category
11:10 gerundio do those terms get translated in OPAC?
11:10 drojf gerundio: 900 bibliographic records? or 900 authorized values?
11:11 cait gerundio: it shouuld be ok to insert with sql
11:11 cait only be careful with some of them like LOST
11:11 cait because the values there have special meaning in the program
11:12 cait but CCODE, LOC, SUGGEST
11:12 cait stuff like that shoudl be no problem at all
11:13 drojf gerundio: you would have to manually insert the authorized values as such in the authorized values settings before importing your biblio data. you would not have to set the values up for each record again

11:15 magnuse hiya mtompset
11:15 mtompset Greetings, #koha.
11:15 mtompset Greetings, magnuse.
11:25 mtj hi folks
11:25 mtj hey magnuse , what do you know about rdf?
11:26 magnuse mtj: a bit
11:26 magnuse :-)
11:27 mtj ive just re-read this.. ->[…]i/Linked_Data_RFC
11:27 magnuse anything special you are looking for?
11:28 magnuse yeah, lots of half baked ideas
11:28 mtompset Greetings, mtj.
11:28 mtj well…. im looking about for a rdf2marc crosswalk
11:28 magnuse not the other way around?!?
11:28 mtj yep :)
11:28 mtj heya mtompset  :)
11:29 mtompset Triple checking the git install instructions.
11:29 magnuse i never heard of one, and i hope noone wastes energy on it (at least until i hear of a use case for it) :-)
11:29 mtj everyone wants to go marc->rdf, no one wants to go the other way :p
11:29 mtj i have a good use case, i think
11:29 * magnuse is all ears
11:30 mtompset That would be pretty ugly, being all ears. ;)
11:30 mtj … getting records into a koha
11:31 magnuse well, when we build SemantiKoha, we can do that
11:31 magnuse :-)
11:31 mtj the better way to do that would be to mod koha to import actual RDF records (of course)
11:31 magnuse get the records into  triplestore
11:31 mtompset Some data conversions are not reversible (in the general case)
11:31 mtj but until then… im looking for a quick/dirty solution
11:33 magnuse looks like they have some kind of json too - maybe that would be easier than converting the rdf?
11:33 mtj and that quick/dirty solution would prolly be some rdf2marc conversion, then just import the bib as marc
11:35 mtj hmm, i think rdf might be a little easier that the json format
11:35 mtj more documented, and more rdf tools about
11:36 magnuse hm, yeah, maybe
11:36 mtj i think i might ask the Q on code4lib and ol-tech before i start
11:37 * magnuse admires mtj for his courage
11:37 mtompset From the searching I did, find Rochelle from Project Gutenburg. :)
11:37 mtompset Of courtse, that was 7 years ago.
11:38 mtompset Ah, there...
11:38 mtompset So, perhaps that person might be able to help you, mtj. :)
11:44 jwagner joined #koha
11:48 mtj magnus_lunch, good news, it looks pretty easy for openlibrary stuff , specifically
11:49 gerundio joined #koha
11:50 mtj and the json format looks quite familar too
12:06 magnuse mtj: yay!
12:14 mtompset My librarian colleague has generated the most interesting of errors.
12:14 mtompset While adding items... she changes the branch.
12:15 mtompset And when it tries to go back to the original page, it blows up big time.
12:18 magnuse sounds like fun!
12:19 cait mtompset: hmm what do you mean by blow up?
12:20 cait some kind of permission problem? or a perl problem?
12:20 drojf sounds like advanced user error creativity
12:20 mtompset software error contact the webadmin.
12:20 cait oh ouch
12:20 cait is there something useful in the logs?
12:21 mtompset Well, requires some parameters, I believe, and the switches back without parameters, as far as I know. I haven't looked very far into it.
12:23 mtompset [Wed Oct 24 09:56:50 2012] [error] [client] [Wed Oct 24 09:56:50 2012] Can't call method "fields" on an undefined value at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 2438.
12:23 mtompset Interesting this is...
12:23 mtompset thing is...
12:23 drojf that privacy thing looks like more work than i thought. koha has a horrible lot of third party options :/ but how could i resist an idea that spontaneously manifested between 2 and 4 last night?
12:24 mtompset If I open another tab, make the change, and then tweak the current record, it fixes on the next one.
12:24 mtompset So, I was thinking that perhaps should be a pop-up windows like the help.
12:25 mtompset drojf: what idea is that?
12:26 mtompset And yes, drojf, it is advanced user error creativity. A user that knows what she is generally doing, doing something in the moment which triggers a nice kaboom.
12:26 drojf mtompset: basically full disclosure to your patrons of all tracking and third party stuff your library uses. and opt-out options would be cool too
12:27 mtompset That sounds like a nightmare to code, but useful to have.
12:27 mtompset It would also get worse as dependencies are added/removed.
12:27 mtompset wouldn't it?
12:29 tcohen joined #koha
12:30 drojf i dont see why. check for relevant sysprefs, display notice for each one that is enabled on one central opac page. in a perfect world opt out option should be mandatory for all new additions of third party stuff. i assume i will annoy a few people once i write up what i think ;)
12:30 magnuse drojf: that would be an awesome feature
12:34 drojf magnuse: i wonder how happy libraries will be about it. especially as i would strongly suggest that to be available by default, out of respect to patrons (also, laws in some regions of the world). but i think it would not hurt for library stuff to be aware of what privacy issues are implied by use of third party services too
12:34 drojf s/library stuff/library staff
12:35 magnuse drojf: yeah, it would be excellent and awesome!

12:56 mtompset Greetings, tcohen druthb oleonard. :)
12:56 * oleonard fails to sneak in unnoticed
12:57 magnuse maybe someone like fredericd, druthb or jcamins_away would know for sure?
12:57 druthb Seems so, magnuse.
12:57 cait hi oleonard :)
12:57 cait hi druthb :)
12:57 mtompset Oh, and hi, cait. :)
12:57 cait hi mtompset - sorry :)
12:57 druthb Hi, oleonard and mtompset and cait. :D
12:58 cait druthb: that's not good
12:58 cait a separate file
12:58 cait it will mean lots of doubled up work because the strings are so similar to normal opac template files
12:58 druthb Yet Another Translation File.  I agree, that's really not too wonderful.
12:58 cait some separate files would make sense
12:58 cait like stripping out helpf ils
12:58 cait files
12:58 cait or marc files
12:59 cait but that seems like doubled up strings to me - you will have to translate smae things twice i guess
12:59 magnuse looks like it then...
12:59 pastebot "oleonard" at pasted "Anyone else get an email like this from iDreambooks?" (162 lines) at
13:00 mtompset Wouldn't it be a matter of just copying to a new name? (I'm not familiar with the translation part of koha)
13:00 druthb I might be able to figure a way around that, at least tentatively.  What if there was a script to take the untranslated strings in the ccsr file, and look in the matching opac file, and copy the ones that are translated? That'd save some work.
13:00 cait mtompset: it's manual work
13:00 sophie_m joined #koha
13:00 cait druthb: I think ideal would be if the strings ended up in the same file
13:01 cait maybe I am worng
13:01 cait might be worth asking the list
13:01 magnuse oleonard: nope
13:01 druthb cait++
13:01 cait but the way it is now means we will get no translations for the new template for 3.10
13:01 cait because... it's not on pootle
13:01 cait at all
13:01 magnuse and that is... bad

13:03 cait1 joined #koha
13:03 druthb One of the things I'd like very much to talk to some of the key players in the translation arena about is whether or not there is *some way* to cut down the monumental size of the task.  These files are enormous, and that creates a daunting task for new translators.
13:03 magnuse druthb: too true!
13:03 cait1 druthb: there are bugs with ideas on bugzilla
13:04 cait1 I proposed a change to strip out help files
13:04 magnuse there are two suggestions: split out marc dialects and split out online help
13:04 cait1 yep
13:04 cait1 because this way you could translate opac, then intranet gui, then help files with the right terms for buttons and so on
13:04 cait1 help and staff in one makes things hard
13:04 cait1 I think
13:05 magnuse bug 7939
13:05 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7939 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, frederic, NEW , Separate po files for different MARC dialects
13:05 cait1 and when we have late updates like now it makes it worse
13:05 druthb That's a good start, IMO.  A deeper question, to me, is "is there a better technology for doing translation that would take into account some of the other bits, like syspref/MARC dialects/embedded-in-code strings?"
13:05 druthb ...and if so, "can it be implemented without losing what we've already got?"
13:05 cait1 I am not sure if there is
13:06 cait1 pootle is not perfect, but was a great step forward from kartouche
13:06 cait1 I don't know if we could use more features in pootle
13:06 magnuse bug 7934
13:06 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7934 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, frederic, NEW , Separate po file for help pages
13:06 cait1 and redoing the whole translation system... I don't knwo what kind of different solutions are out there
13:06 cait1 but that would be a gigantic task
13:07 druthb All the searching I've done suggests that using .po-type data is probably as good as it gets right now...but *doing something* with that data, in order to make things better...  there seem to be a number of different thoughts on that.
13:08 magnuse there has been a situation where you get lots of very similar strings to translate
13:08 magnuse the same string with and without a trailing . for example
13:08 druthb That's just silly.
13:08 cait1 yeah, but they are still different.. not sure you can automate something here for all possible cases
13:08 magnuse some of that was reduced when someone did some work on capitalization
13:09 magnuse but maybe we could do something more intelligent in that area
13:09 cait1 I am not so worried about these things, more about thins like the untranslatable cataloguing plugins
13:09 cait1 such things can not happen again
13:09 cait1 someone changed it to be based on xml
13:09 cait1 which would be smart, if our translation plugins could deal with it
13:10 cait1 hm translation scripts
13:10 cait1 and the xml structure is bad, what we do for the xslt files doestn't work for them
13:10 libsysguy joined #koha
13:10 cait1 because the structure is backwards
13:11 tcohen eythian, where would u like to add libkoha-contrib-tamil-perl as dependency? debian/control? debian/
13:11 cait1 and some templates could be reworked
13:12 cait1 ok, brb
13:12 drojf druthb++ for thinking about better technology. i was thinking "can this be the best possible way to do that" just yesterday.
13:13 drojf and if there isn't, maybe we could still find ways to improve what we hav enow
13:13 drojf have now
13:13 druthb drojf: It may turn out that it's the best way there is, but I think the question needs to be re-asked from time to time.  And I'm such a noob at the whole I18N world that not too many will get offended at me asking a silly question like that.
13:14 cait1 druthb: communication is good :)
13:14 cait1 if you ask questions, translators can answer :)
13:14 magnuse +1
13:14 cait1 I think first is to get the existing process shifted over probably
13:14 cait1 and then step by step careful changes, because if we mess up, lots of work for translators
13:14 druthb yep, I'm working on that.
13:16 cait1 we had some regressions in the past
13:16 cait1 because it#s so easy to miss something
13:17 cait1 or because something touches something else or so
13:21 druthb Is there any interest in having an IRC meeting? Or should I just throw a bunch of questions out to the list for discussion?
13:21 cait1 I think at the last meeting someone wanted to talk about the manual translation
13:22 * druthb presumes most any such meeting would be at a wierd hour for US-ians, but that's part of the job, imma thinking.
13:22 cait1 maybe it would be good if we did it in the normal meeting - so all developers keep translation problems in mind
13:23 * druthb nods.  magnuse, concur?
13:23 druthb drojf?
13:23 wahanui drojf is from Germany and developing Koha on a raspberry pi!
13:23 * druthb pokes wahanui
13:23 druthb hush, you
13:24 drojf druthb: i'd prefer longer general discussions on the mailing list, so i can take part at whatever weird time i am awake ;) but i'd also like to see some talk about it at the general meeting for what cait1 said
13:24 * druthb thinks libsysguy should join the translation team; he can translate into Texian.
13:24 drojf lol
13:24 cait1 heh
13:24 libsysguy hey now
13:24 druthb also youngster-ian.
13:25 libsysguy there is a young ian?
13:25 * druthb wields a trout, winds up for a nuclear smackdown.
13:26 libsysguy and I would just have to replace "you all" with "ya'll"
13:26 druthb ...  "Do you want to fill this hold?" = "I wanna give it to 'em, yan't to?"
13:27 libsysguy whoa whoa whoa I do not use the word yan't :p
13:27 libsysguy too far Ruthie
13:27 libsysguy hehe

13:28 libsysguy :'( I don't talk that funny
13:28 libsysguy I do slip in a ya'll
13:28 libsysguy but for the most part I think i just have a nerd accent
13:29 druthb :D
13:29 cait1 paul_p: around?

13:30 libsysguy paul_p:
13:31 cait1 ah ok
13:31 druthb All right--here's mah plan, cait1 / magnuse / drojf:  I'll get us on the agenda for the next general meeting, and promote the attendance of translation-interested folk on the general and translate lists, along with sending a list of bugs and other thoughts I've had for discussion.  Some, we can cope with on the list, but we might wanna chat about others during the meeting.
13:31 cait1 sounds ok to me
13:31 drojf i think the next meeting is the one we all three opted out of for nighttime reasons
13:32 drojf all three of us
13:32 druthb Oh!   hm.
13:32 drojf or is it? cait1?
13:32 druthb Perhaps the following one.  Whichever one next works for y'all.
13:33 oleonard[…],_7_November_2012
13:34 magnuse druthb: sounds like a good plan
13:34 * magnuse was called away for a few moments
13:34 cait1 ah right
13:35 cait1 I forgot about the date
13:35 cait1 I will be in oslo
13:35 cait1 or on my way back from there.... so will not be able to attend anyway
13:35 cait1 so maybe start on list and then it will be the next meeting after release
13:36 cait1 well not because of me - but it's a bad time for whole europe next time :(
13:38 oleonard Yeah I'm going to revise the whole meeting agenda to "Karaoke Jam"
13:39 druthb oleonard++
13:40 cait1 oleonard: karaoke without us? *sniff*
13:40 mtompset My cousin has a karaoke business. :)
13:44 drojf oleonard: you want to wake us up by any means necessary?
13:44 oleonard Of course not drojf, IRC Karaoke is just typing along with the words ;)
13:45 drojf lol
13:45 drojf i wouldn't want to miss that
13:45 drojf is anyone here using piwik or google analytics in koha (via usercss or however you do it)?
13:46 maximep joined #koha
13:46 cait1 drojf: I think rangi could help you with that
13:49 jwagner drojf, you put the google analytics code into the opacuserjs syspref
13:50 drojf jwagner: what i would be interested in is how the code looks. so i could check if it is present in opacuserjs
13:52 oleonard So I found our new menu plugin: :P
13:52 jwagner fairly lengthy code block (outside any jquery block) -- starts off something like this:
13:52 jwagner var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "https://ssl." : "http://www.");
13:52 jwagner document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + gaJsHost + "'
13:53 jwagner goes on for quite a while, there's a setAccount variable for your account number
13:53 drojf ok i guess looking for '' would be enough to determine if it is used
13:53 cait1 oleonard: oh yes please ;)
13:53 drojf thanks jwagner

14:21 jcamins magnuse: I think there should be, yes.
14:21 jcamins drojf: I tried GA in Koha.
14:22 drojf jcamins: i think GA is sorted out for now. i'm only interested in detecting its use. i could use someone with piwik (or two, one local and one using piwik servers) though
14:22 jcamins drojf: I would like to set up piwik.
14:23 jcamins drojf: are you adding an opt-out cookie?
14:23 jcamins 'Cause that'd be awesome.
14:23 drojf jcamins: i'm at displaying information about privacy relevant stuff for now, but eventually i would like that, yes
14:23 jcamins Especially the Facebook button.

14:42 jcamins drojf: it's too depressing.
14:42 druthb drojf:  The way that campaign funding and ballot-access is set up in this country, watching a third-party candidate is like wrestling a pig:  It doesn't do any good, you both get dirty, and the pig likes it.  They want attention, but won't be president until the system changes.
14:45 drojf given that al jazeera, russia today and c-span showed it there are probably more people outside the us than inside that have seen it. you sure have a weird system
14:45 druthb Yes, yes we do.
14:46 oleonard Weird and broken.
14:46 druthb Someone wrote a novel I read years ago, about a different history if the Confederacy had won our civil war in the 1860s.  One of these days, it'd be interesting to see a novel with the premise that the Revolution failed.

14:52 jcamins lol
14:53 gerundio drojf, cait1 ... sorry to left you hanging earlier after I posted a question
14:53 gerundio been caught between lunch break and meetings ever since
14:54 jcamins Those sneaky lunch breaks!
14:54 drojf lol
14:54 jcamins You think you only get one of them, but suddenly a second shows up!
14:54 * jcamins looks around hopefully.
14:54 drojf i could have second lunch
14:54 cait1 me too
14:54 cait1 I didn't have first lunch tho
14:54 jcamins "I said, 'I wasn't expecting a sort of a second lunch break.'"
14:54 cait1 hm maybe better have dinner
14:54 drojf one round of kitties and second lunch please
14:55 cait1 I had a curious black and white staring thorugh my window earlier
14:55 * cait1 is being watched - have to be careful what I say....
14:55 drojf stared at by a black and white lunch break?
14:55 drojf that's scary
14:56 gmcharlt speaking of mailing lists, koha-consort appears to have disappeared
14:56 cait1 oh cat :)
14:56 gmcharlt does anybody know if it got moved by INCOLSA, or just dropped?
14:56 jcamins "Ha ha! No one expects a second lunch break! It's chief weapon is spanakopita. Spanakopita and salads. Its two chief weapons... can I start over?" :)
14:56 cait1 gmcharlt: what was it supposed to do?
14:56 cait1 I think we also have koha-announce or something?
14:56 gmcharlt cait1: discussion of Koha for consortia
14:56 druthb gmcharlt: since INCOLSA no longer exists...
14:56 drojf rofl jcamins
14:56 cait1 oh
14:56 gmcharlt it was never high volume
14:57 cait1 :)
14:57 gerundio drojf, answering your question earlier: "900 bibliographic records? or 900 authorized values?".... door #2 - authorized values
14:57 cait1 drojf: maybe we should propose renaming the german mailing list at this time? ;)
14:57 drojf gerundio: ok, you would not want to do that manually
14:58 drojf cait1: do we want to rename it or have a second one?
14:58 gmcharlt druthb: well, folded into MCLS, more like
14:58 druthb right.
14:58 jcamins cait1: i think the non-English mailing lists make sense.
14:58 cait1 to replace the existing?
14:58 cait1 or second like 2?
14:58 drojf there is not really much happening so we could have translation stuff and the rest on one list
14:58 cait1 jcamins: we were talking about hte name being overly complicated
14:58 jcamins koha-de?
14:58 gerundio drojf, right, I guess I have no choice but to go for MySQL records import
14:58 cait1 yeah, but it's not koha-de
14:59 cait1 and it would be nice if it was I think :)
14:59 cait1 http://lists.koha-community.or[…]/mailman/listinfo
14:59 drojf jcamins: it's labelled koha-l18n-german or something like that. but it is used for everything
14:59 gmcharlt are both koha-oz and Koha Pacifika needed?
14:59 cait1 koha-win32....
14:59 gmcharlt cait1: and[…]ha-mailing-lists/
14:59 cait1 looks like a good candidate to kill :P
14:59 gerundio cait1, you mentioned "only be careful with some of them like LOST because the values there have special meaning in the program but CCODE, LOC, SUGGEST stuff like that shoudl be no problem at all"
14:59 drojf cait1: i bet there is a google group for that
14:59 drojf :P
15:00 jcamins drojf: yeah,, and it solved all our problems.
15:00 gerundio in the default koha installation I only have 2 records
15:00 drojf jcamins: yes, it did \o/
15:00 gmcharlt hmm, I'm seeing bunches of glitches
15:00 gerundio under a YES_NO category
15:00 gmcharlt koha-oz's archives are available only to subscribers -- which I don't feel should be the policy
15:00 jcamins gmcharlt: really? That's just because you're not using the Google Group.
15:00 drojf gmcharlt: i agree
15:00 cait1 lol
15:00 drojf lol
15:01 cait1 so maybe this could go on agenda for a meeting?
15:01 jcamins If you were using the Google Group, it would all make sense.
15:01 * slef uses jcamins to make a kitty kebab
15:01 gmcharlt and the server for Koha Pacifika isn't responding
15:01 cait1 eew slef
15:01 cait1 we were just talking about second lunch, now you did it again!
15:01 slef cait1: he started it!  He used the G words again!
15:01 cait1 slef: only to make fun of it
15:02 jcamins gmcharlt: PASIFIKA wasn't intended to be a permanent mailing list, I think... that's a Koha implementation project.
15:02 cait1 you have to be a bit more careful before you kebab your allies :)
15:02 reiveune bye
15:02 reiveune left #koha
15:02 gmcharlt jcamins: ah, OK
15:02 * slef is not in a happy place... another project he's working on has moved bug trackng to github... so we can't report bugs any more.
15:02 libsysguy joined #koha
15:02 gerundio cait1, I made a SQL query on my colleague's authorised_values table and those categories you mentioned are all there, along with some additional ones
15:03 cait1 gerundio: what exactly do you want to add?
15:03 jcamins gmcharlt: not really sure why we would have listed it on the website.
15:03 pastebot "gerundio" at pasted "select distinct(category) from authorised_values;" (17 lines) at
15:03 jcamins But I'm not an expert.
15:03 gmcharlt jcamins: probably just enthusiasm at the time
15:03 gerundio cait1, those are the categories my colleague added to his koha installation
15:03 slef I'm getting a little jaded with these projects where people write things like "since we switched to github issue tracking, managing our bugs is much simpler" YES! BECAUSE ONLY GITHUBBERS CAN REPORT THEM ANY MORE!</rant>
15:04 jcamins gerundio: and you can't ask him why he did what he did?
15:04 gerundio in a total of 865 authorised values records
15:04 cait1 hm
15:04 cait1 AUT, COU LAN PREF are not included in stadnard koha
15:04 drojf slef: what's the issue with github? bad terms of service?
15:05 cait1 maybe used in cataloguing? or some other place
15:05 jcamins slef: I didn't even know Github had a bug tracker.
15:05 slef drojf: yes.
15:05 slef jcamins: calling it a bug tracker is an overstatement.
15:05 jcamins If I did, I might encourage the Google Group users to consider using it for when they run into problems after ignoring the instructions.
15:05 gerundio jcamins, like cait1 mentioned, these values are used for cataloguing

15:06 gerundio wheter they are mandatory or should be used in the 1st place... that's a question I'll have to ask him
15:06 jcamins gerundio: oh, so you do know what they're for.
15:06 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3652 critical, P1 - high, ---, chrish, ASSIGNED , XSS vulnerabilities
15:06 jcamins I thought you were trying to figure out what they were for.
15:06 gerundio my original question was regarding if the values on this table are translated in OPAC
15:07 gerundio my colleague added all the values in Portuguese
15:07 slef I think some developers refuse to accept that bug trackers are fairly hard because bug tracking is fairly hard... no-one's cracked it yet, have they?  Bug trackers loved by some are hated by others.
15:07 jcamins Ah.
15:07 jcamins No.
15:07 jcamins Not translated.
15:07 gerundio he even changed the original values from Yes and No to Portuguese Sim and Não
15:08 jcamins Makes sense to me.
15:08 jcamins Otherwise "Yes" and "No" would be in English.
15:09 gerundio ok, this is the 1st time you say to me that he has done something well :D
15:09 jcamins gerundio: see, it's not that I'm always negative. It's that the Zebra changes horrified me. :P
15:10 gerundio you still remember that... you had nightmares with those changes, right?
15:10 gerundio I think you didn't catch my conversation earlier
15:10 cait1 gerundio: translating the descriptions is fine :)
15:10 * gmcharlt has taken the liberty of dropping the dead lists from the list of lists
15:10 cait1 for some languages you can opt to get translated files at installation times - those are basically translated sql files
15:10 gerundio from what gaetan_B told me, I think it's nightmare material too
15:10 cait1 drojf: remind me we need to check the german sql files before release 3.10?
15:11 jcamins gerundio: no, I did not read the scrollback this morning. There was more than I felt like looking at.
15:11 rhcl joined #koha
15:11 cait1 drojf: using you as my external memory again :P
15:11 gerundio cait1, thanks for the feedback on that
15:11 jcamins cait1: you should add it to your cloud-based to-do list.
15:11 cait1 jcamins: oh
15:11 cait1 yeah maybe :)
15:11 cait1 but where is the fun with that? :)
15:11 gerundio jcamins, sure you did... it was related with the default MARC framework
15:11 gerundio is it supposed to be changed?
15:12 oleonard Looks like the self checkout timeout is 100% dependent on JavaScript. No timeout enforced by the script :(
15:12 jcamins gerundio: I change my default MARC framework.
15:14 gerundio ok, that leads to the 2nd part of the discussion
15:14 jcamins gerundio: what's not a good idea is changing it so that fields mean different things than in the standard.
15:14 cait1 oleonard: ouch again :(
15:14 gerundio I experienced some unexpected behaviors while importin/exporting it with CSV
15:15 cait1 oleonard: security issue even?
15:15 jcamins I've never used the framework import/export.
15:16 oleonard cait1: I would say it's a security issue in that if the library doesn't know the timeout requires JS, the system ignores the timeout setting they set in system preferences with the expectation that it would work
15:16 cait1 jcamins: hm what problem with 490 is linda referring to? I thought we did things with indicators for traced and untraced?
15:16 gerundio all the fields are written in Portuguese, a lot of them with punctuated characters
15:16 jcamins cait1: not for searching.
15:17 gerundio in these cases the import resulted in incomplete values
15:17 gerundio for instance I have this field for "Língua do documento", which stands for "Document language"
15:17 cait1 jcamins: hm, how would search ideally work there?
15:17 gerundio after the import I only get "L" everything after the 1st accentuated character is deleted
15:17 cait1 gerundio: you got an encoding problem
15:17 cait1 gerundio: that happened to me before too - make sure you have utf-8 everywhere
15:18 cait1 gerundio: for example if you use an editor, check it has the right settings, I had problems with that in the past
15:18 jcamins cait1: it probably should not include traced 490s in indexes.
15:18 cait1 jcamins: oh? not sure I understand that. but it's a problem for another time maybe
15:18 mtompset Have a good day (24 hour period), everyone.
15:19 jcamins cait1: yes, definitely a problem for another time.
15:19 gerundio cait1, the weirdest part is that the export/import works correctly for all the other frameworks
15:19 gerundio I noticed that koha exported an ANSI CSV
15:20 jcamins gerundio: if only one framework includes accented characters, then that makes sense.
15:20 gerundio I converted it to UTF-8 and then imported
15:20 gerundio the result was an empty framework
15:20 gerundio jcamins, all have accented chars
15:21 jcamins gerundio: okay, then that's very weird.
15:21 cait1 gerundio: hmm - which export option did you use? I only used libreoffice so far- never the csv
15:21 cait1 gerundio: it worked nicely for the german umlauts with that, at least I didn't notice any problems
15:21 cait1 but never tried the default framework... hm.
15:21 * cait1 agrees with jcamins
15:22 * gerundio agrees too :)
15:22 drojf gerundio: how did you determine it was ANSI and what editor did you use?
15:22 gerundio I ended up exporting to SQL and importing it afterwards
15:23 gerundio everything went smooth that way

15:26 oleonard One of my staff members just excitedly discovered that Koha has fuzzy searching. :|
15:26 francharb joined #koha
15:26 jcamins oleonard: I thought you had that disabled?
15:27 oleonard No we've had it for ages
15:28 * jcamins remembered an issue with fuzzy searching during one of your upgrades. I guess it was that it was inadvertently *dis*abled rather than enabled.
15:28 oleonard I think that's what it was
15:29 gerundio jcamins, regarding those changes on the record.abs file
15:29 gerundio can you tell by looking quickly at a default MARC framework export if there are some weird changes too?
15:30 jcamins gerundio: I don't think I could, no.
15:30 gerundio maybe you can tell me other thing that might help
15:31 jcamins gerundio: I think you'd just have to compare it against the standard. :(
15:31 gerundio the way we set our frameworks is related to the zebra indexes we define in record.abs?
15:33 jcamins Somewhat.
15:33 wahanui somewhat is not the adjective I would use
15:33 jcamins lol
15:33 jcamins Thanks, wahanui.

15:52 drojf sure, i will be up again ;)
15:52 gerundio drojf, I've looked into that patch 1st thing on Monday morning
15:53 gerundio my patch doesn't affect that one in any way
15:53 gerundio do you want me to check anything in particular?
15:53 jcamins gerundio: could you test if it works and sign off on it if it does?
15:54 drojf gerundio: cool. but i did not mean to check for that, but apply it to a dev installation, try if if does what it claims to do and if so, sign it off
15:54 drojf because then we could get it into koha
15:54 drojf just like we need to find somebody to signoff on your patch
15:56 gerundio I'll put it in my TODO list
15:56 drojf thanks
15:56 gerundio I hope to fit this task until the end of the week
15:56 drojf that would be awesome
15:56 gerundio is there any procedure I should know about?
15:57 drojf i think you did the same last time. make a new branch in git, apply the patch and then follow the test plan that is given in the comments
15:57 jcamins patch workflow?

16:47 gerundio how I miss it
16:47 jcamins gerundio:[…]n__&list_id=44595
16:47 libsysguy rel to 3.8.6?
16:48 jcamins libsysguy: on master and/or 3.8-latest
16:48 jcamins gerundio: actually,[…]%2Cbug_id&limit=0
16:48 jcamins 2541 open bugs.
16:48 jcamins Any bug closing that can be done is much-needed.
16:48 libsysguy jcamins I'll take a meek
16:48 libsysguy peek*
16:49 oleonard Is it against protocol to close bugs which you reported and fixed yourself?
16:50 jcamins oleonard: I don't think it should be.
16:50 jcamins No one else is going to be closing the bug.
16:50 gerundio you should have the 10 most wanted bug openers for koha
16:50 jcamins gerundio: hehe.
16:50 gerundio I noticed that must be #1 :D
16:50 jcamins He opened a lot of the early bugs, I think.
16:51 oleonard And then he vanished into thin air forever!
16:51 jcamins oleonard: hehe.
16:51 jcamins We should tell him, and ask how he did it.
16:52 * jcamins can think of uses for vanishing into thin air.
16:56 drojf nice try, new release manager. no vanishing for you
16:56 jcamins Awww.
16:56 jcamins Please?
16:56 jcamins Look over there! Shiny cookies!
16:57 drojf cookies? where? where?
16:57 drojf where did jcamins go?
16:58 drojf d'oh
16:58 cait1 lol
17:00 cait1 jcamins: what are the rules for closing a bug currently?
17:01 laurence left #koha
17:01 NateC joined #koha
17:01 jcamins cait1: aww.
17:01 jcamins You spotted me.
17:01 jcamins cait1: We don't really have rules.
17:02 jcamins It was supposed to be "reporter or someone other than the patch writer closes the bug."
17:02 jcamins But the result of that rule is no one ever closes any bugs.
17:02 jcamins There are so many open bugs it's not like anyone finds anything among them.
17:02 drojf cait1: i ask jcamins for each bug until i have reached an arbitrary number of closed bugs and then do it without asking anymore.
17:03 * jcamins is going to have a bug closing party once 3.10 is released.
17:03 drojf actually i asked in general but he is the one who keeps answering
17:04 jcamins Everything with a "pushed" status is getting closed.
17:04 jcamins (if there hasn't been any post-push discussion)
17:04 drojf that sounds like an allnighter
17:04 jcamins Anything that doesn't actually work can be reopened or reported as a separate bug.
17:06 drojf is that a good enough description? <h3>Google Analytics</h3><p>Longish rant about the evilness of Google Analytics, how it spies on you, connects all your data with your Google account and peeps through the keyhole while you poop.</p>
17:07 cait1 drojf: we could start now
17:07 cait1 I am up for it, right after finishing my spaghetti
17:08 cait1 drojf: maybe leave out the p reference
17:10 cait1 jcamins: I tihnk tidying up bugzila is a good idea to do for a fresh start
17:10 jcamins cait1: yes, definitely.
17:12 jcamins I suppose I'll need to figure out how to use curl and git-bz together to give me an overview of the latest comments, and then automatically close it with a message "So far as I know this is now working, so I am closing the bug. Please reopen or file a new one if any further problems are encountered."
17:12 cait1 ok so say
17:12 cait1 all patches of a bug have been pushed to the versions they should be pushed to
17:13 cait1 and noone complained about it not working for... 1 month?
17:13 cait1 can I set if fixed then?
17:13 cait1 resolved fixed?
17:13 jcamins Yeah, I think so.
17:13 cait1 when do we actuall CLOSE bugs?
17:13 cait1 so they don't show up in searches and are annoying?
17:13 cait1 maybe we after they have been fixed for... a while?
17:14 jcamins I don't think we do. I think we just set them to RESOLVED.
17:14 cait1 or just after release of the version they were introduced?
17:14 jcamins RESOLVED bugs don't show up in searches, though.
17:14 cait1 hm but they only get crossed out when you close them
17:14 jcamins I thought they got crossed out when RESOLVED.
17:14 cait1 which is much easier to see than the resolved fixed status
17:14 cait1 hm let's check
17:15 jcamins If CLOSING is necessary, I suggest bulk-closing all bugs that have been RESOLVED-FIXED for > 1 mo.
17:15 cait1 hm no
17:15 cait1 I mean they only get crossed out when closed it seems
17:15 cait1 I did a quick search for "ALL lists"
17:15 Oak good night me hearties.
17:16 cait1 bug 5611 is closed fixed, bug 5981 is only resolved fixed
17:16 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5611 blocker, PATCH-Sent (DO NOT USE), ---, brice.sanchez, CLOSED FIXED, can't add comments and tags in the OPAC when mod_perl is activated

17:16 cait1 but you were right too - the resolved fixed bugs don't show up when doing a search for "lists"
17:17 jcamins cait1:[…]%2Cbug_id&limit=0
17:18 cait1 still loading
17:18 jcamins Yeah, it'll take a long time.
17:18 jcamins 3400 bugs marked RESOLVED-FIXED.
17:19 cait1 wow
17:19 cait1 hm
17:19 cait1 we could narrow it down a bit more
17:19 cait1 with versions
17:19 cait1 to quickly close some
17:19 chris_n joined #koha
17:20 jcamins Those were 3400 bugs marked RESOLVED-FIXED that haven't been touched in at least 30 days.
17:20 cait1 quick poll - someone against closing those?
17:21 jcamins We should do it overnight.
17:21 rangi tell me before you do
17:21 cait1 overnight?
17:21 rangi ill disable email
17:21 rangi cos otherwise that will suck hugely
17:21 jcamins Yes.
17:21 jcamins It sure will.
17:21 cait1 rangi: what do you think about the idea in general?
17:21 gerundio cya tomorrow
17:21 jcamins 3715 bugs resolved more than six months ago.
17:22 rangi 30 days seems fine to me, 6 months more than fine
17:22 cait1 jcamins: why is the 6 months huger than the 30 days?
17:22 jcamins cait1: I think because I misremembered the 30 days.
17:22 jcamins I didn't actually have the page open when I said 3400.
17:23 cait1 heh ok
17:23 cait1 ok, negative side effects?
17:23 * rangi is gone again
17:23 cait1 the release note script will not be affected or will it?
17:23 jcamins cait1: there's a danger of it crushing rangi's linode.
17:24 jcamins The release script won't be effected at all, no.
17:24 jcamins *affected
17:24 cait1 we could do it in batches
17:24 cait1 I would even volunteer to go through some manually first
17:25 cait1 it's unlikely I will do something for the distance study course tonight
17:25 jcamins Hm.
17:25 jcamins Tsk tsk.
17:25 jcamins You should be doing schoolwork.
17:26 cait1 i am on vacation!!

17:50 caser hi everyone
17:51 mveron joined #koha
17:51 jcamins rhcl: was there a lynching mob?
17:51 rhcl theres a presentation on patrons voting books as "awesome" or "not awesome" by returning books to a return box labled as such
17:52 mveron Hi #koha
17:52 caser is there a way to allow someone access to the circulation features of the staff interface without being able to view patron's checkouts?
17:52 rhcl jcamins: don't know. that was in a presentation by marshall breeding
17:52 rhcl the one I'm in has an API that somehow gets books labeled as "awesome" and pushing that to the ILS
17:52 caser I am at a school library and want to respect students' privacy, but want to allow other student volunteers to help in the library by checking things in and out.
17:52 jcamins caser: not to my knowledge, no.
17:53 cait1 caser: maybe you could make use of the web self check
17:53 cait1 ?
17:53 jcamins cait1: but can't you see what you've checked out in the web self check?
17:53 cait1 it's only an idea, others might shoot me down :)
17:53 caser hmm
17:53 cait1 hm I don't know
17:53 cait1 but you are probably right
17:53 rhcl yea, that was mentioned. If you have self checkout, then you need to have patrons put a big awsome sticker on the book that can be read by the machines
17:54 rhcl selfcheckin, rather
17:54 jcamins rhcl: actually, that was for caser, but I'm impressed they actually figured out how to deal with it.
17:54 cait1 rhcl: it works with barcodes or any other number
17:55 cait1 hmmm jcamins- seems we have no history of closing bugs
17:55 * jcamins loves the way these two unrelated conversations are almost, but not quite, making sense as a single conversation.
17:55 jcamins cait1: no, we don't.
17:55 cait1[…]d&query_based_on=
17:55 cait1 it starts with bugs 1 - 13 and beyond
17:55 caser I currently don't have self checkout.  Is there a Koha interface for that?
17:56 * mveron tried to upload a .csv file in the Qoute uploader tools/, gets always Error 'Uploads limited to csv. Incorrect filetype: unknown".  It seems that in JS[0].type  is empty. Can anybody confirm?
17:56 cait1 but there are some holes in the numbers
17:56 oleonard caser: http:// your opac /cgi-bin/koha/sco/
17:56 oleonard caser: You'll have to enable it in system preferences
17:57 caser I'm looking into this...
17:58 libsysguy joined #koha
17:59 cait1 hi libsysguy
17:59 oleonard I don't know cait1, I think we may need to wait more time to see if Bug 2 is really fixed
17:59 huginn Bug[…]show_bug.cgi?id=2 normal, P2, ---, chris, RESOLVED FIXED, Need appropriate graphic for admin scripts
18:00 cait1 oleonard: i don't like icons - for me that is closed :P
18:01 rhcl @mbreeding Libraries will keep ILS way more than 10 years once they are on open source ILS because they own it.
18:01 huginn rhcl: I suck
18:02 cait1 ok, before I go and add this to a lot of bugs:  Closing this bug, please file a new bug or reopen this one when problem still exists.
18:02 cait1 rhcl: wow
18:02 cait1 ah, that was @
18:03 rhcl think I saw a tweet <don't quote me> that he had some stat indicating the average life of an ILS at a given location was 10 yrs
18:03 gerundio joined #koha
18:05 drojf unfortunately some also keep the same version for 10 years :/
18:05 drojf or, livecd
18:05 jcamins lol
18:06 cait1 hm found his slides
18:06 cait1 pptx?
18:07 oleonard PowerPoint version the-latest-whatever.
18:07 oleonard Oh, next year's our 10-year anniversary with Koha. I wonder what we'll switch to?
18:07 rhcl I'm in the wrong session--I should be listening to Marshall
18:08 * jcamins suggests you upgrade to KOHA- the open source ILS everyone is always shouting about.
18:08 oleonard :D
18:08 caser jcamins & cait1, thanks for the suggestions. I think I may be able to work something out with the self-checkout feature-- I didn't even realize that existed.  Thanks!
18:08 drojf they are much higher in versions too
18:08 cait1 caser: you are welcome
18:09 cait1 oleonard: heh :) I know - but I had expected a pdf
18:09 jcamins oleonard: really?
18:09 jcamins Why?
18:09 jcamins Sorry.
18:09 jcamins cait1: really?
18:09 jcamins Why?
18:09 oleonard cait1: Really? I would expect a Powerpoint with slides that allude to but do not include information about the content of the talk
18:10 cait1 ?
18:10 cait1 you are joking with me, right?
18:10 jcamins No, we're serious.
18:10 oleonard Nope
18:10 cait1 because pptx will look different when you open it in libreoffice
18:10 cait1 for example
18:10 cait1 it's not a very portable format
18:11 cait1 and if you don't have the extension you can't even open it in older versions of word
18:11 oleonard My problem with the practice is that seeing someone's slides usually does you no good without audio of the talk
18:11 jcamins cait1: and do you _really_ think that mbreeding would provide a PDF?
18:11 cait1 oleonard: agreed - but depending on the slides a bit. there are stil people reading pretty much from their slides
18:12 cait1 jcamins: hm ok
18:13 cait1 slide 21 is weird
18:13 cait1 estimating the developer count for koha based on bywater, catalyst and biblibre only?
18:13 * jcamins expresses...
18:13 jcamins an utter lack of shock.
18:13 jwagner joined #koha
18:14 oleonard If only someone published regular statistics about how many people were working on Koha
18:14 cait1 yeah
18:14 jcamins oleonard: that'd be great.
18:14 rhcl Need to be careful w/ slides--the narrative to accompany them is really important to understanding the point
18:14 gmcharlt oleonard: who could that be? </sarcasm>
18:14 cait1 we really need a project statistics person... oh wait
18:15 jcamins rhcl: unless the slide's heading (and I haven't looked) is "Koha developers employed by the three largest Koha support companies," it's probably misleading.
18:17 rhcl Breeding: Old systems are damaging libraries
18:17 rangi Hmm what did I miss?
18:18 jcamins rangi: we were just saying it's a shame that no one ever runs any statistics to find out how many developers Koha has.
18:18 rhcl sorry, don't have the context for this. "The open source ILS options are flawed in that merely mimic the commercial vendors."
18:18 rangi Lol
18:18 * jcamins agrees with that- have you seen Millennium?
18:19 rangi Koha is commercial
18:19 jcamins If we imitated Millennium, that'd be a pretty major flaw.
18:19 * cait1 hands rangi coffee
18:19 jcamins rangi: mbreeding said that. I presume he meant "proprietary."
18:19 rangi Yep
18:19 rhcl I think somebody mentioned yesterday that Millennium was trying to pass itself off as being "more open"
18:19 jcamins I saw that.
18:19 oleonard He meant "You know, commercial commercial"
18:20 rangi Which means his point is invalid as his terms are flawed
18:20 rangi Catalyst has 125 developee
18:20 rangi Developers
18:20 wahanui the brains that make Koha grow and get better. Give them cookies. Lots of cookies. And possibly beer.
18:20 gmcharlt wahanui: just not all at once
18:20 wahanui gmcharlt: sorry...
18:21 gmcharlt wahanui: you should be -- you still haven't hit the singularity, you slacker!
18:21 rangi Ah well fudders will fud
18:21 oleonard gmcharlt: All at once is okay, I'll save the cookies for later.
18:21 gmcharlt oleonard++
18:22 rhcl some passing mention of bibliocommons IRT integrating "awesome" voting with the ILS
18:22 rhcl suggestion they would be open to the idea
18:24 jcamins But bibliocommons is a discovery layer.
18:24 jcamins A very cool discovery layer.
18:24 jcamins But a discovery layer.
18:25 jcamins How would bibliocommons' involvement help? It's at checkin that you need support.
18:26 rhcl donno, there was just an audience suggestion that they might be open to integrating the idea.
18:26 jcamins Ah.
18:26 * jcamins suspects the audience member is correct.
18:26 jcamins Just, you know, it wouldn't do much. :/
18:28 rhcl I think most people just want to dump off their returns and get on with the show
18:28 rangi Yeah and just use star ratings
18:30 rhcl but hey, the next presentation is makerspaces, and it should be good. Pretty good attendance so far too.
18:31 rangi Maker spaces are cool
18:31 cait1 :)
18:32 cait1 rangi: would you be opposed to me manually closing soome bugs?
18:32 cait1 starting from bug number 2
18:32 cait1 and do you want to turn of emails for that? or better wait?
18:33 rangi Nope but I'd rather turn off mails and batch do it
18:33 cait1 hm or that
18:33 cait1 so how could we do it?
18:33 rangi Do a search then you can choose modify multiple
18:34 rangi Then warn me
18:34 rangi I disable mail
18:34 cait1 aaah
18:34 rangi You hit submit
18:34 cait1 I will look into the functionality now
18:34 rangi And when it's done I turn mail back on
18:37 rangi Flat white time bbiab
18:38 cait1 mmh
18:38 cait1 flat whites.
18:40 rhcl shoes?
18:41 cait1 rhcl: ?
18:41 cait1 coffee
18:41 rhcl flat whites = white shoes with flat soles?
18:42 rhcl Think I'm outta the loop--disregard me

19:01 cait1 which desk is for liz? :)
19:02 rangi the space in front of mine, she is getting a new desk
19:02 rangi gonna be between me and kathryn
19:02 cait1 ah nice :)
19:02 rangi or she might swap with cjh
19:03 rhcl google glasses can generate data for 3d printers from what they see? I see some potential in this.
19:05 drojf i see google gathering data about everything you see. but that's only me ;)
19:08 rhcl yea, but to walk around, and, an example from somebody's tweet, find a pretty girl, take an image, and print her out...
19:08 rhcl bit wierd, si?
19:09 drojf yeah, my first thought was someone at google printing your girlfriend or boyfriend
19:09 JesseM_ joined #koha
19:10 rhcl I see a need for Koha to db all the 3d printer images...but it's lunch time, so I'm off

19:13 rangi have never tried it

19:13 cait1 but interested in your results :)
19:14 oleonard I asked ByWater about whether their customers used the bulk anonymization tool and they said yes, so I guess that one is working
19:15 cait1 oleonard: you have to remember to set up a anonymous user for it

19:27 oleonard Very nice weather, and beautiful fall color too. Should be a nice day for trick-or-treating tomorrow.
19:27 rangi tomorrow?
19:27 wahanui tomorrow is pizza friday! or the day after today.
19:27 oleonard (yes I know, why do they trick-or-treat six days early?)
19:27 cait1 :)
19:27 cait1 yes, why? :)
19:30 oleonard Ah, here's the link. this is why:[…]Gallery&gal_id=50
19:31 oleonard So the kids trick-or-treat doesn't coincide with the drunken Halloween fest the college students put on
19:31 cait1 oh
19:33 rangi oh i remember that
19:33 rangi i still have the tshirt
19:33 rangi from 2002
19:35 bag I went to athens in 1999 for halloween - it was a lot of fun
19:36 rangi i was actually in toledo for halloween that year
19:36 rangi columbus, then athens, then toledo, then cleveland
19:38 oleonard An exciting Ohio tour!
19:39 rangi hehe toledo was definitely the least exciting
19:39 rangi however the bus ride from toledo to cleveland was interesting

19:55 maximep anyone has experience with the code in Koha::Calendar ?
19:55 maximep I have a major bug, but I don't know enough perl OO to really understand some parts :S
19:57 rangi maximep: colin campbell knows that code pretty well, maybe comment on the bug (or make a new one) and make sure he is cced
19:57 cait1 maximep: is your problem on master or a latest 3.8? there has been lots work done touching this recently I think
19:58 maximep code is the same on master as in my 3.8.5
19:58 maximep it seems calling is_holiday removes the hours because of the line "$dt->truncate( to => 'day' );"
19:59 rangi i think there is a bug reported for that already
19:59 maximep but I have no idea why it would change the values of the current Date object :S
19:59 maximep isn't dt a local variable to that sub ?
19:59 maximep ah, ok, will search bz
19:59 rangi nope
20:00 rangi $dt is a ref
20:00 maximep I wish there wasn't tests of those functions only for 'days' unit :/
20:01 rangi maximep: try this
20:01 rangi my $localdt = $dt;
20:01 cait1 maximep: you can fix that :) the tests I mean
20:01 rangi then truncate localdt instead, if that fixes your issue
20:01 rangi then we know its a scope issue
20:02 * oleonard waves goodbye til tomorrow
20:02 rangi cya oleonard
20:02 cait1 bye oleonard :)
20:03 maximep yeah, easy enough to test all those
20:03 maximep looking at bug reports
20:03 maximep I wonder if bug 8800 would help
20:03 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8800 major, P5 - low, ---, tomascohen, Needs Signoff , SpecifyDueDate && useDaysMode=Datedue wrong behaviour
20:03 rangi hmm sounds plausible
20:03 maximep looks like a big rewrite
20:03 rangi yeah
20:03 rangi id try the little assign test first
20:04 rangi try to track down what is causing the issue
20:04 maximep ok, will do
20:04 rangi thanks
20:04 rangi maximep++
20:05 jcamins_away I think that patch may fix the issue you describe as a side effect. I am not certain though.
20:05 maximep same problem with localdt
20:05 maximep I guess it's a ref to the ref
20:06 maximep maybe if I dt->clone ?
20:06 rangi yeah good idea
20:06 rangi try that
20:06 maximep yay, it works =)
20:06 * cait1 hands out coffee and cookies to do something useful
20:06 cait1 :)
20:06 rangi cool so yep we know the problem :)
20:07 maximep took me a while to track this one down!
20:07 rangi scope issues are always tricky
20:07 maximep time to open a new ticket =)
20:07 rangi :)
20:07 rangi that would be nice to get in before 3.10
20:07 rangi id mark it critical
20:07 maximep I might as well attach a few tests to reproduce the bug easily
20:07 rangi *nod*

21:11 maximep well, I give up at trying to add tests of the function Koha::Calendar::addDate
21:11 maximep I just don't understand the code
21:11 maximep I will just test is_holiday because I understand that one :p
21:11 rangi :)
21:12 maximep I don't understand why the code would set the hours to '10' if the previous day is a holiday
21:12 maximep makes no sense to me
21:12 maximep and what's the meaning of the comment "# Staffs specific"
21:16 cait1 maybe a leftover thing for a specific library?
21:16 cait1 suhm
21:16 cait1 hm
21:17 cait1 and no idea actually
21:18 maximep as of right now it seems that adding 3 hours to 17:30 on monday returns 10:30. I must be missing something
21:18 drojf closing time, opening time… done wrong?
21:18 drojf just guessing, never lokked at it
21:18 drojf looked
21:19 drojf rangi: do you have experience with integrating piwik in opacuserjs?
21:20 drojf (or anyone else that was not around when i asked earlier)
21:20 rangi yeah
21:20 rangi its easy peasy
21:21 drojf rangi: i don't want to use it, i would like to know how the code in opacuserjs looks. so i can automatically detect if it is used
21:23 rangi just look for piwik.js
21:23 rangi <script type="text/javascript">
21:23 rangi var pkBaseURL = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ? "" : "");
21:23 rangi document.write(unescape("%3Cscript src='" + pkBaseURL + "piwik.js' type='text/javascript'%3E%3C/script%3E"));
21:23 rangi </script>
21:23 drojf nice, thanks. looks basically the same as google analytics in green
21:24 drojf (i bet that is no valid expression in english lol)
21:24 rangi yep, cept piwik lets users opt out
21:24 rangi :)
21:25 cait1 drojf: heh
21:25 drojf if they know it is used ;)

23:01 jcamins No it isn't.
23:01 jcamins Have I commented recently how much I hate the Facebook integration?
23:01 jcamins I use Facebook.
23:02 drojf rangi: the piwik iframe is pretty ugly but it seems to work. if you wonder why you get a million optins and outs from a german ip, that would be me testing things ;)
23:02 rangi i liked it better when it was only enabled by cutting and pasting
23:02 jcamins But when I look at a number of libraries' catalogs, those page views show up *on Facebook*.
23:03 jcamins Or, they did before you shared that Chrome plugin that blocks Facebook.
23:03 drojf the facebook thing in koha does not seem to do anything for me. does not load stuff from fb website, no cookie. or it hides behind the googleapis that i did not allow
23:04 cait1 jcamins: what exactly is the facebook integration? it sounds scary
23:04 rangi hm that was either wind or an earthquake
23:04 rangi not sure yet
23:04 jcamins cait1: I don't know exactly how it worked.
23:04 jcamins And I've never actually enabled social networks to look at it.

23:09 jcamins Ooh, Raspberry Pis are now actually open source?
23:09 jcamins Cool!
23:12 ibeardslee some discussion about that .. not 100% completely
23:12 ibeardslee
23:15 jcamins Okay, now that I've read that, I don't understand what the difference is.
23:16 jcamins It sounds like a proprietary wireless card driver which is a bunch of source code shipped with a proprietary firmware.
23:17 cait1 you learn lots of interesting things reading the old bugs
23:17 cait1 sadly lots of cool features lost too over time
23:17 jcamins :(
23:17 ibeardslee if I understand it correctly .. although the software to interact with the SoC is open source, the Soc itself is still closed
23:17 jcamins We could revive some of them.
23:18 cait1 we should
23:18 cait1 especially something like catmaintain - allowing to undo deletes of items and biblios
23:18 cait1 and there used to be a page showing of new acq - we have different solutions now, but still sad
23:18 cait1 and non marc cataloguing
23:18 cait1 and simple acq
23:20 eythian oh, hai.
23:20 cait1 hi eythian
23:21 drojf ibeardslee: i first understood they opened everything until i read the comments on given that the (still closed) video stuff is needed to boot the device there is not that much won from my point of view. i would like to have a way to boot completely free and run it headless so everything else regarding graphics could go to hell anyway
23:24 cait1 jcamins: In >Catalog>Add a biblio : it would be nice to have a popup (a new window), to create new authority, without get out the biblio.

23:44 cait1 oh
23:47 drojf wasn't there an option to use jquery from a third party server? i can't seem to find it
23:48 jcamins drojf: yes, and no, respectively.
23:49 drojf that's odd. but good ;)
23:53 mveron Good night everybody  :-)
23:55 drojf the choices for the yuipath pref are "local" and ""? seriously?
23:56 cait1 seems the german speaking community is awake late tonight
23:56 jcamins drojf: no.
23:56 jcamins drojf: that's wrong.
23:56 jcamins drojf: they are...
23:57 jcamins "included with Koha..." and "from Yahoo's own servers"
23:58 jcamins The value of the variable will be "local" or anything else, respectively.
23:59 drojf but that anything else is expressed by in the pref file ;)
23:59 jcamins Ah.
23:59 jcamins Yes.
