00:04 jcamins Where do I set estimated delivery dates?
00:05 jcamins Oh, figured it out.
00:07 jcamins But I can't figure out how to get something to show up in the list of late orders.
00:08 maximep left #koha
00:08 jcamins Ah, figured it out.
00:08 jcamins You have to clear all the criteria before clicking filter.

00:34 informationstudies hi every one , i'm emtenan from kingdom of Saudi Arabia , cs college " information studies "  i've one question , How many libraries use Koha system ? !
00:35 drojf informationstudies: nobody knows. everybody can download and use it without registration
00:36 jcamins informationstudies: many.
00:37 jcamins worldwide koha users?
00:37 drojf informationstudies: you can search at but that only includes those that put it there
00:37 jcamins koha installations?
00:37 jcamins worldwide koha installations?
00:37 jcamins wahanui has failed me!
00:37 wahanui jcamins: what?
00:37 jcamins koha users worldwide?
00:37 informationstudies aha but my doctors give me this assignment =(  he wanna  numbers
00:37 jcamins worldwide koha users is[…]a_Users_Worldwide
00:38 jcamins informationstudies: you can tell count the number listed on the page there, and/or on libwebcats, but that's not a definitive answer.
00:38 jcamins There is no definitive answer.
00:38 jcamins The best you could do would be "at least X."
00:38 drojf lib-web-cats A directory of libraries throughout the world      found 1983 items where the library automation system used is  Koha sorted by: Institution, Type,HQ DESC,LibraryName.  Showing page 1 of 100
00:39 drojf so i'd say it's a lot more
00:41 jcamins Tons more, because that doesn't include libraries in the Phillipines, does it?
00:42 jcamins I think almost every library in the Phillipines is using Koha.
00:43 drojf found 263 items where the country is  Philippines and the library automation system used is  Koha sorted by: Institution, Type,HQ DESC,LibraryName.  Showing page 1 of 14.
00:43 jcamins Okay, so it has at least some of the libraries.
00:44 drojf informationstudies: you could try to get some download statistics too. of course that does not say anything. rangi would probably know some numbers
00:44 informationstudies here in Saudi i think one of the university in Riyadh  used Koha .   but others used horizon like in my university ,
00:45 jcamins There are also Millennium and Voyager libraries in Saudi, and probably a lot of other ILSes in use, too. :)
00:46 jcamins Koha's the best, though, of course. :)
00:46 informationstudies i must download some statistics , try to find the right number  <<< i hope to find it *_*
00:46 drojf there is no right number
00:47 jcamins informationstudies: drojf meant that there are statistics on the number of people who have downloaded Koha in the last month.
00:47 drojf but while you're at it, download a copy of koha for yourself. it's free and nice, try it out yourself :)
00:47 jcamins Yes, definitely do that.
00:48 drojf uh, it's getting 2am-ish already. good night #koha
00:48 jcamins Good night.
00:49 informationstudies i'll try it insha allah  , Thank you so much for  helping me ,
00:49 tcohen joined #koha
00:49 informationstudies good night all =)

02:13 jcamins Since "lentil the match
02:14 jcamins *"Lentil the matchmaker" doesn't make any sense, I'm thinking that I need a pun based on "dal."

02:44 wizzyrea hmm

11:08 vfernandes hi :)
11:08 vfernandes great new for UNIMARC users: patch for bug 8347 submitted
11:09 kf bug 8347
11:09 kf hm where is our bot?
11:09 vfernandes[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8334
11:09 kf oh no huginn?
11:09 vfernandes vacations :P
11:09 kf heh hope not
11:10 kf gmcharlt: could you take a look at huginn? - he went missing.
11:11 vfernandes it is down for a beer eheh
11:13 vfernandes I put the wrong link -[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8347
11:14 vfernandes this patch I think it's important to be tested and put in the next 3.10.X and 3.8.X
11:16 vfernandes in my tests worked perfectly :P
11:16 kf you wouldn't have submitted it otherwise I hope ;)
11:17 vfernandes of course... :)
11:38 vfernandes kf what if think about a patch to change the scale and width of barcode in patron cards?
11:39 vfernandes *what you
11:39 kf hm not sure
11:39 kf it's over 20 right now I think?
11:39 kf oh on patron cards
11:39 kf not sure I haven't used that feature yet
11:40 vfernandes my $barcode_width = 0.8 * $self->{'width'};  my $barcode_y_scale_factor = 0.01 * $self->{'height'};
11:40 vfernandes the 0.8 and 0.01 values are fixed
11:51 magnuse might be a good idea to run that by chris_n when he shows up perhaps? he coded most of that, i think

12:38 vfernandes ohh bug 5725
12:38 vfernandes[…]w_bug.cgi?id=5725
12:39 vfernandes I have this working on 3.2.X
12:47 Barrc Would anyone have any ideas as to why a MySQL server install is taking up to 25 seconds to insert into the koha sessions table! Old version of Koha and SQL is optimised as best I can - really strange!
13:06 kf Barrc: do you regularly tdelete old entries?
13:06 Barrc kf: yeah, daily. Session table has about 80 rows there now
13:14 kf Barrc: I think there are some best practice things you can do
13:14 ericar joined #koha
13:14 kf but we haven't tried them (afaik) like changing the table not to be innodb or not use mysql to store session information
13:15 kf maybe try google - quite sure it has been on the mailing list before
13:18 Barrc kf: Thanks - I'd imagine there'd be some code (CGI) changes to not use the db for session information. Should be handy enough - I will trawl through the list - thanks. Have exhausted all other avenues at this stage!
13:19 drojf joined #koha
13:21 kf Barrc: I think you can even configure it

13:40 kf oleonard: let me think about it - what's the message you get?
13:40 oleonard "Sorry, you cannot place holds because you owe $26.95." I guess I could trace back from there but I thought someone might remember offhand

14:17 oleonard Great idea
14:23 magnuse Barrc: there's a syspref called  SessionStorage that lets you choose mysql, memcached or tempfiles for your sessions
14:31 Barrc magnuse: Thanks - although I notice (in the slow query log) that other tables are slow too - must be more a MySQL issue - can't figure it though...
14:31 jcamins Alas, bug 7067 comes with no unit tests whatsoever.

14:43 oleonard there's a potential wrinkle with 7067 that I'd like to discuss jcamins when you have time
14:44 jcamins oleonard: is it the lack of unit tests?
14:44 oleonard No :)
14:45 jcamins Oh, well, I caught that one.
14:45 jcamins I have some time now if you'd like to discuss it now. :)
14:45 oleonard It's the conflict between the need for self-registrations that notices be sent very frequently, versus the need of "digest" type messages to have time to accumulate
14:46 oleonard If we want people's self-registration details to go out right away (what a user would expect), the message queue has to be processed every minute or so
14:46 oleonard But that means that "digest" messages have no time to accumulate before being sent
14:46 jcamins Hm.
14:51 kf oleonard: could we have a process_message_queue job that is more selective?
14:51 kf like cron themwith different delays
14:52 oleonard That seems like it might work
14:53 lavamind joined #koha
14:57 oleonard So one question is whether such a change to process_message_queue blocks 7067, or whether 7067 could be pushed with warnings to the user
14:57 jcamins oleonard: I think the latter, if 7067 passes QA.
14:58 maximep joined #koha
14:59 kf oleonard: I think maybe have a big note - and tell people that it#s a new feature they can use, but there is one caveat?
15:00 kf I see no harm done adding it - it will cause no regression and people can decide if it's a blocker for them or not
15:22 jcamins jcamins
15:22 jcamins jcamins?
15:22 wahanui you are too young to be the President of the United States.  Which is a pity, because he had the votes at the 3.12 election.
15:22 jcamins wahanui: jcamins is also very, very irascible.
15:22 wahanui okay, jcamins.
15:22 jcamins jcamins?
15:23 wahanui you are very, very irascible.
15:23 jcamins Listen to wahanui, folks, s/he knows of whence s/he speaks.
15:24 jcamins BTW, is wahanui male or female?
15:24 druthb yes.
15:25 druthb Since wahanui says things that don't make much sense sometimes, I presume male.

15:41 jcamins lol
15:41 magnuse there is no sanity clause!
15:41 magnuse kf: nom nom!
15:41 kf oleonard: I hope you are right - doing something about it is always better than being grouchy, but sometimes it's really really hard to not grouch.
15:42 oleonard I'm a fan of grouching, but also of doing something about it.
15:44 oleonard I submitted an update to bug 8661 jcamins, not sure if you want another signoff or not
15:44 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8661 minor, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, Needs Signoff , break out additional authors in opac like in staff
15:46 magnuse @later tell wizzyrea: you might want to update ;-)
15:46 huginn magnuse: The operation succeeded.
15:46 oleonard And hey you people who are also regulars, add yourself to that list!
15:47 jcamins I guess I should update the coding guidelines.
15:47 kf oleonard: can I request something for this bug?
15:48 oleonard kf: Sure
15:48 kf oleonard: our data contains the english codes, but that is often not really what end users understand
15:48 magnuse jcamins: good idea - there were a couple of mails yesterday that struck me as candidates for copying to the wiki
15:48 jcamins kf: ooh, good idea. css_classes++
15:48 kf until we find a good solution for this, could you add a class to make it possible to hide the information?
15:49 oleonard Which information are you talking about?
15:49 * magnuse wanders off to make dinner

15:49 kf oleonard: they are shown in square brackets behind the names
15:50 kf +        <!-- add relator code too between brackets--> << those :)
15:50 oleonard I see
15:53 vfernandes how I can add myself? I can only edit channel bot list ...
15:53 jcamins vfernandes: just edit it. :)
15:54 vfernandes forget it :P
15:54 jcamins There's an edit button.

15:54 jcamins It doesn't show up unless you're logged in.
15:54 vfernandes I was looking for it but I wasn't found it
15:56 vfernandes done
16:00 vfernandes now I want to be in the thanks list of the next Koha release :P
16:01 oleonard You're on the right track vfernandes
16:01 jcamins vfernandes: I think you have a very good chance of that. :)

16:02 kf oleonard: almost - it's not authorities but on bibliographic records
16:02 kf but yes, that would be very helpful
16:05 jcamins Okay, does anyone have a particularly good commit message they would like to propose for my guidelines on commit messages.
16:05 jcamins *?
16:06 * jcamins just takes a random commit message he wrote.
16:11 kf heh
16:12 kf jcamins: I think I like guidelines, but we should try not to scare new contributors away
16:12 kf so maybe be a bit lenient with people not so experienced? :) only a gentle reminder to us all
16:13 jcamins kf: yes, but the people who are failing to follow them are almost universally experienced developers.
16:13 kf not saying we have a current case
16:13 kf but hopefully we will see some new devs during 3.12 release cycle :)
16:13 jcamins If you're new, I'll guide you through it.

16:55 drojf jcamins++ # guidelines!
16:58 talljoy first let me start with a basic question.  Does the authority indexer work better (or no difference) with dom or grs-1 biblio indexing?
16:58 talljoy sorry...authority linker
17:00 melia joined #koha
17:00 jcamins talljoy: DOM.
17:01 talljoy the linker is working beautifully, btw on this data set.
17:01 talljoy but the authority page is all showing 0 biblio(s)
17:01 talljoy and I can't search the catalog for the an=### and get results.
17:02 talljoy fyi- this is a fresh install (git) 3.8.4 including the makefile and make install run.
17:04 jcamins talljoy: 3.8.4?
17:04 talljoy yeah, don't ask.  lol
17:04 jcamins If I had to guess, I'd say this is probably a result of bug...
17:04 jcamins (looking)
17:04 talljoy i can go up to 3.8.5.  but no higher since that the version they are on.
17:05 jcamins bug 8557

17:05 jcamins That said, I've never heard of that being a problem.
17:06 jcamins And you reindexed the bibs, right?
17:06 talljoy yes i did.  i am going to move up to 3.8.5 then symlink the kohaclone files to dev and then reindex.
17:07 talljoy i didn't symlink for this version since it was "installed" from scratch yesterday.
17:08 talljoy i just feel like i'm missing something obvious about the indexing or config files.  some reason why it won't (or hasn't) indexed 'an'
17:08 talljoy where is that found the reference to index an?  bib1.att?

18:24 martian523 hi, after the upgrade to 3.8.7, i got this error when trying to replace / edit record
18:24 martian523 Undefined subroutine &C4::AuthoritiesMarc::GetAuthorizedHeading called at /usr/share/koha/lib/C4/ line 667.
18:25 cait I think there was a bug filed for a mising subroutine in 3.8
18:25 cait martian523: have you checked bugzilla?
18:26 martian523 nope
18:27 cait maybe bug 8829
18:27 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=8829 critical, P1 - high, ---, gmcharlt, Pushed to Master , can't import authorities
18:27 martian523 i'm just a librarian, not really know IT stuff

18:27 cait martian523: being a librarian is nice, I am one too :)
18:27 martian523 pretty nice
18:28 martian523 so is there a bug fix?
18:28 cait hm still trying to find the bug report I was thinking about
18:28 cait jcamins_away: ?
18:28 cait bug 9149
18:28 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=9149 major, P3, ---, gmcharlt, NEW , Patch 8823 introduces reference to non-existent function
18:28 cait ok
18:29 cait I think that last one could be it
18:30 cait martian523: what you can do - add your problem descrpition to the last bug - it will also add you as cc to the bug report, so you will get notice when something moves there
18:30 cait hopefully it will be fixed in 3.8.8 (I would think so)
18:30 martian523 so does that mean i can't do any records now?
18:30 martian523 import or add or edit?
18:30 cait as soon as there is a patch, your it person should be able to fix it
18:31 cait but there is no patch yet :(
18:31 cait that's why it would be cool if you updated with your problem - and we can give it a higher severity
18:34 martian523 hopefully it will be fixed very soon
18:34 martian523 i very much appreciate everyone working for koha
18:37 cait :)
18:42 martian523 i added my comment to the bug, so I would get a notification when someone comment?

18:47 martian523 yep
18:47 rambutan joined #koha
18:48 martian523 i think it's the right bug
18:50 cait I will keep an eye on it, but you are cc now - so you should see when something happens there
18:50 rangi If I can track down the root of the problem I'll release a 3.8.7-1
18:50 cait good morning rangi
18:50 rangi With the fix
18:51 cait martian523: rangi is release maintainer - he can actually do that :)
18:51 martian523 thanks
18:51 rangi First I have to be able to recreate it
18:51 rangi And I currently can't
18:52 martian523 recreate the authorities?
18:52 rangi Recreate the bug
18:53 cait martian523: can you give the exact steps of what you were doing?
18:54 rangi And what your sysprefs are around authorities
18:54 McCloud joined #koha
18:54 martian523 so i was trying to replace a record by doing a Z39.5 search, the title came out, uploaded it,
18:55 martian523 but can't save it,
18:55 martian523 i haven't changed anything in authorities
18:55 martian523 it's been fine before the update to 3.8.7
18:57 cait martian523: can you go into the system preferences editor and look what your settings are on the authorities tab?
18:58 martian523 i'm there
18:58 martian523 which preference
18:58 martian523 autocreate? biblioadds?
18:59 cait just list them up to down maybe?
18:59 francharb joined #koha
18:59 martian523 autocreate -- generate
18:59 cait the pref and the setting, don't have to give the whole sentence - will make it easier to get into the same situation
18:59 martian523 biblioadds -- allow
19:00 martian523 dontmerge -- don't
19:00 rangi Try switch autocreate off please
19:00 martian523 useauthorities -- use
19:00 * francharb waves
19:04 rangi Hi francharb
19:04 cait hi francharb
19:05 martian523 o nice, fixed
19:05 francharb hi rangi cait
19:05 martian523 but why would the settings change by itself?
19:05 rangi It didn't
19:06 rangi It's just a work around
19:06 martian523 but it was working fine before?
19:06 martian523 o, so it's just a temporary fix?
19:06 rangi There is a bug in autocreate
19:06 rangi Well it wasn't it was creating duplicate authorities
19:06 rangi But it appeared to be fine
19:07 rangi In trying to fix that autocreate was broken
19:07 cait sounds a bit complicated
19:07 rangi When that is fixed you can switch it back on
19:07 cait rangi++
19:08 martian523 ok...that will be in the next update i suppose?
19:08 rangi Could you update the bug saying if you turn autocreate authorities off you can work round this
19:08 rangi So others know
19:08 rangi And yes December 22
19:08 rangi Unless I decide it's more urgent
19:08 martian523 ok, but would this work around create new problems?
19:09 rangi It won't autocreate authorities
19:09 cait so you will have to manually create and link them I think
19:10 rangi You probably should be doing that anyway :)
19:11 martian523 o ok
19:11 rangi Autocreate is a hack you kinda lose the value of authorities if you create new ones for every record
19:12 rangi In theory you should get authorities from an authoritative source
19:12 rangi Like library of congress
19:12 rangi And link your bibliographic records to them
19:13 rangi But I know in practice autocreate is useful
19:13 rangi So we will fix it
19:17 martian523 thanks
19:22 kathryn joined #koha
19:22 jcamins Hm, yeah, need to figure out what happened to 3.8.x.
19:23 jcamins What perplexes me is that I wrote the patch that added it against 3.8, then forward-ported it.
19:23 * McCloud[A] is now away - Reason : Auto-Away after 30 minutes
19:25 * magnuse upgrades to 3.8.7
19:26 cait magnuse: brave ;)
19:27 magnuse the problem you are talking about now is just to do with authorities, right?
19:27 rangi yeah, and it seemed to work fine, but we both may have not had autocreate switched on
19:27 rangi magnuse: yep
19:28 jcamins rangi: no, I definitely had AutoCreateAuthorities turned on because that was where there was a bug.
19:28 rangi *nod* i was pretty sure I had too
19:28 rangi im gonna git bisect to find it
19:28 rangi will let you know
19:28 cait side effect from something else?
19:28 jcamins Thanks.
19:28 jcamins cait: yeah, I'm thinking maybe a merge error.
19:28 rangi thats my guess
19:34 magnuse wow, copying tinymce-files are a *huge* part of running "translate install"...
19:35 oleonard tinymce files are *huge* in general.
19:35 jcamins Ironic.
19:36 magnuse hehe
19:37 magnuse oleonard: do you have a plan for moving tinymce out of the language specific dirs?
19:37 oleonard Sounds like a good idea, but it wasn't on my radar before
19:37 cait magnuse: you got volunteered to open a bug :P
19:38 oleonard magnuse: Does tinymce handle localization correctly by default?
19:38 magnuse oleonard: don't know...
19:39 magnuse hm, i can't remember seeing strings from tinymce in the translations. cait: can you?
19:39 cait not really
19:40 magnuse when i choose norwegian i still see tooltips in tinymce in english
19:40 cait *sigh*
19:40 oleonard Yeah, it has a "langs" directory but it only includes en
19:40 magnuse ah
19:40 oleonard Maybe it's possible to use a configuration file like we do with the datepicker
19:41 * magnuse would think there are already translations for it
19:41 cait i think maybe we have to teach it to find out which language it#s supposed to show
19:41 cait maybe.
19:41 magnuse cait: good point!
19:41 oleonard ...which we could do if we don't mind including all possible language files for all installations
19:42 * magnuse gotta run
19:42 cait oleonard: also a good point

20:03 jcamins Okay, the 3.8.x patch was never posted.
20:03 rangi ahh that will be the issue then :)
20:04 jcamins Ummm...
20:04 rangi could post that .. it could be jsut as a follow up for the one that is there, and ill pick it in
20:05 jcamins I think maybe the thing to do is a follow-up.
20:05 rangi yeah
20:05 rangi with the C4::AuthoritiesMarc changes
20:05 rangi is probably the safest
20:06 rangi my bad, i had obviously tested against master then when i went to pick saw it said 3.8.x and went oh i tested on there, and picked it over, did a quick test (and in my 3.8.x one i didnt have autocreate on, i had to turn it on to trigger the bug) so it snuck through
20:07 rangi (and we have no unit tests that would catch it)
20:08 rangi ah well, good to have found it

20:54 oleonard Wow, making TinyMCE translatable for an arbitrary set of languages is going to be a pain in the butt
20:56 oleonard Perhaps we identify all the plugins Koha uses and build one big language config file for all of them...
20:56 jcamins oleonard: do we use a lot of TinyMCE plugins?
20:57 oleonard I'm not sure, that's what I'm trying to figure out right now
20:57 rangi only in the news isnt it?
20:57 jcamins That's what I thought.

21:05 oleonard I wonder if anyone ever uses the "save" button?
21:05 jcamins oleonard: is there a more-translatable jQuery plugin we should be switching to instead?
21:05 cait lol sorry, totally overread this
21:06 cait but hey, do I get full points now for answering the question? :)
21:06 jcamins lol
21:06 jcamins Of course.
21:06 cait yay :)

21:10 cait hi wizzyrea :)
21:10 jcamins Hello.
21:11 jcamins I settled on "Table crepes," with the recipe for making it from scratch labelled "For another roll."
21:12 * jcamins cracks himself up sometimes.
21:15 chris_n jcamins is on a roll today
21:15 * chris_n heads home
21:15 rangi heh
21:16 oleonard Hm, it's not clear that one /can/ load custom translations to TinyMCE from a config file...
21:19 jcamins oleonard: would something like jWYSIWYG be better?
21:20 oleonard Don't know, but that did look interesting.
21:21 * oleonard has to leave, more wysiwygging tomorrow I guess
21:21 jcamins oleonard: oh, that reminds me. I have a bug to report on the floating save button in the syspref editor.
21:21 jcamins You're welcome. :)
21:22 * oleonard escapes
21:22 wizzyrea ahh! floating save button in the syspref editor
21:23 * wizzyrea sends oleonard lots of chocolate to get that working
21:23 wizzyrea it's the little things :P

21:26 eythian hi
21:26 cait morning eythian
21:26 eythian it is rather
21:29 jcamins libsysguy: changing the cataloging module's Javascript from custom disaster to jQuery required only a small patch?!?
21:30 libsysguy hehe
21:30 libsysguy well somebody already integrated jquery
21:30 * libsysguy tips his hat to oleonard
21:30 libsysguy and somebody removed a whole crapton of js from that file
21:30 libsysguy idk where it went
21:30 libsysguy but I was cursing having to rebase my patch
21:31 jcamins It's in a separate JS file so that the authority editor and bibliographic editor don't diverge again.
21:31 libsysguy well that makes sense
21:33 libsysguy I would have left it at large but I didn't want anyone to think I was compensating for something
21:33 jcamins lol

22:41 jcamins @later tell talljoy There was another bug to do with spaces in register types in the DOM configuration file. Search for ": [nwp]" in biblio-zebra-indexdefs.xsl and remove the space if you find it. The fix was post 3.8.4.
22:41 huginn jcamins: The operation succeeded.

23:47 drojf so the ccsr theme is only available for english?
23:48 jcamins drojf: apparently fredericd did not put the PO files on
23:48 * francharb waves #koha good bye
23:53 drojf i think there are more problems with non-english languages. i also get "NetworkError: 404 Not Found -[…]g/images/list.gif", same for cart.gif. happens with the german version, not the english one
23:56 jcamins drojf: I think you need to update your translations.
23:56 jcamins I thought there had been a patch in which those images were eliminated.
23:58 jcamins Yes, those files don't exist.
23:58 drojf yes they should be taken from a sprite
23:59 drojf looks like i really did not update the translation files then
