01:49 wajasu i am trying to figure out how to import authority records from[…]es/n79123944.html  i downloaded the MARC/XML link at the bottom and staged it
01:52 wajasu or tried to.  i see marcxml in the file.  the manage stage marc record screen shows 0 records.   so i guess I can't import.
01:54 wajasu i get " records not stage because of marc error".   so i guess thats it.
01:59 jcamins_away You can't import MARCXML.
01:59 jcamins_away Just MARC.
01:59 * jcamins_away leaves again
02:01 jcamins_away Pretty cool that MARCXML is on now.
02:13 wajasu yea. thx
02:15 wajasu as i've been delving into a script to gen authorities.  the  works fine if the subject heading ONLY has $a.  if it has other subfields, it creates a new authority record for each.

11:28 wajasu i've been pouring through code that searches for a matching authority heading for a personal name.   it matches based on all the possible subtags.(a-z)
11:29 wajasu so when i "generate" auth records, i get tons of auth records for a personal name because of minor fields like  $f (date of work), etc.
11:31 wajasu i am thinking that i should restrict it to a subset of the field 100 tags in the case of autogenerating  auth records.
11:32 cait wajasu: you might want to talk with jcamins about that
11:32 cait but sundays are quiet here - almost noone around
11:33 wajasu will do.
11:41 wajasu what i need is a reference book for rules on how to create authority records.

14:16 Oak "I like what the Father said to his son when he gave him a watch that had been handed down through generations. He said, 'I give you a mausoleum of all hope and desire which will fit your individual needs no better than it did mine or my father's before me. I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you may forget it for a moment now and then and not spend all of your breath trying to conquer it.'"   -- William Faulkner

19:40 cait hi wizzyrea :)
19:40 cait wizzyrea: can you maybe fix the link on the koha wiki? I tried logging in and get it send me my password... but it didn't work
19:40 cait the download link for 3.10 is wrong
19:41 wizzyrea wait, on the wiki?
19:41 wizzyrea what link on the wiki
19:41 cait um blog
19:41 cait sorry :)
19:41 rangi yeah .. what you talking bout
19:41 rangi :)
19:41 cait wiki I could do myself
19:41 wizzyrea lol :) yes I can do that
19:41 cait thank you
19:41 cait see wizzyrea understands me :P
19:42 wizzyrea which page is wrong?
19:43 wizzyrea and how is it wrong
19:43 wizzyrea because it always points to "latest.tar.gz"
19:43 wizzyrea and if "latest.tar.gz" isn't the latest, that's not something I can fix (I think)
19:45 cait wizzyrea: the blog entry about the 3.10 release
19:45 cait the download link in there
19:46 cait[…]leased/#more-3959

23:36 jcamins rangi: it's not quite as good as your Gondor e-mail, but I managed to use the word "loth" on Bugzilla.
23:36 rangi :)
23:43 rangi bug 8557 sounds like a local use problem
23:43 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8557 normal, P3, ---, christophe.croullebois, Passed QA , in and the use of a barcode scan send the form unexpectedly
23:43 rangi you can program the barcode scanner to not send a carriage return
23:43 rangi thus not submitting a form
23:43 jenkins_koha Starting build #953 for job Koha_master (previous build: FIXED)
23:44 jcamins I can't really understand why you *wouldn't* want the scanner to submit the form, though.
23:44 rangi yeah
23:44 rangi probably because the barcode is halfway down the form
23:44 rangi and they scan it, without filling in the rest first
23:44 jcamins However, I find acquisitions totally unusable.
23:45 rangi yeah i want to create a simple acquisitions module, and just leave that as it is .. presumably it works for french libraries
23:45 rangi but starting a fresh one, which you can choose to use from sysprefs seems the least dangerous path
23:46 jcamins Makes sense to me.
23:52 jcamins Ooh, I like the Sudoc icons.
