14:28 mtompset Greetings, tcohen.
14:28 tcohen hi mtompset
14:28 mtompset didn't get my public/private key stuff working, but I went with aes256/rijndael instead.
14:29 tcohen talking about?
14:29 mtompset my external authentication patch that I'm working on.
14:29 tcohen oh
14:30 mtompset basically, my patch adds a URL to the OPAC login page. the URL redirects to an external authentication source (like SimpleSAMLPHP) which authenticates, and then passes back encrypted user attributes used to log the user in.
14:31 mtompset and if the user isn't in the local DB, it creates them.
14:32 mtompset How's your weekend going?
14:33 tcohen slow mtompset, really slow
14:33 tcohen i was struggling with some git weirdness
14:34 tcohen while watching the wimbledon finals
14:35 tcohen would you do a little experiment on a k-c clone?
14:35 mtompset Ooo... your presence reminded me about the patagonian mara that my family and I saw on Canada Day.
14:35 mtompset sure. what kind of experiment?
14:35 mtompset 32bit or 64bit?
14:35 tcohen on an updated git clone
14:35 tcohen do: git checkout origin/3.8.x -b test_3.8
14:36 jcamins tcohen: that's backwards.
14:36 mtompset Yes, that's backwards.
14:36 jcamins It should be `git checkout -b test_3.8 origin/3.8.x`
14:36 tcohen git rm misc/translator/po/da-DK-pref.po
14:37 tcohen git commit -m "testing"
14:37 tcohen git format-patch origin/3.8.x
14:37 tcohen git reset --hard origin/3.8.x
14:37 mtompset what is -m on git commit?
14:38 tcohen git am -3 -u 0001-testing.patch
14:38 tcohen does it apply?
14:38 mtompset just booting VM now.
14:39 tcohen (-m means "use this as commit message", only used for this example)
14:39 tcohen (jcamins: i think is interchangeable
14:39 tcohen )
14:39 mtompset okay... logging in.
14:40 tcohen the thing is, what format-patch produces (on the translate server) cannot be applied
14:40 mtompset okay branched...
14:41 tcohen did u try it jcamins?
14:41 jcamins tcohen: I did not. I was letting mtompset do it since he has a VM.
14:41 tcohen heh, ok
14:41 mtompset I added -o ~ on the format
14:42 mtompset Yes, it applied.
14:42 tcohen ok, so it is something related to that server then
14:43 tcohen i'll figure it out
14:43 tcohen it works fine on my 13.04 box
14:43 mtompset I also did the order jcamins and I were expecting.
14:43 mtompset for the git checkout.
14:45 tcohen i don't think it makes any difference
14:45 tcohen thanks for testing
14:45 tcohen there's something with the server i'll have to figure out
14:45 tcohen maybe asking druthb
14:45 tcohen or, druthb_away
14:46 mtompset ooo.... lots to git pull today.
14:53 tcohen gmcharlt has been busy u know
14:56 cait joined #koha
14:57 tcohen hi cait
14:57 cait hi tcohen
15:04 mtompset That he has. When I first joined the community, I didn't really see him. But lately, wow!
15:04 mtompset Greetings, cait. :)
15:05 mtompset Greetings, jcamins. Did you have a good July 4?
15:05 cait hi mtompset
15:05 cait mtompset: whom are you talking about?
15:05 mtompset gmcharlt has been super active lately.
15:05 cait aah yeah :)
15:06 cait he has been too i na time long before you younglings arrived here ;)
15:06 mtompset gmcharlt++ # for super activity and awesome care. :)
15:06 mtompset I figured as such when I first arrived.
15:10 mtompset And since tcohen is asking about 3.8.x, I figure he must be doing something active behind the scenes. :)
15:11 tcohen no no
15:11 tcohen i'm preparing my bash-completion patch, and the koha-create rewrite
15:11 tcohen but right now working on our custom 3,12 deployment
15:12 cait tcohen: you have impressed us :)
15:12 cait well me at least :)
15:12 cait tcohen: there is a patch for acq
15:12 cait that had a lot of bug reports
15:12 cait could you maybe push that to 3.12 over the weekend?
15:12 tcohen just email me about it, i'll see what can i do
15:13 mtompset Greetings, druthb.
15:13 cait tcohen:  :)
15:13 druthb Hi, mtompset! :)
15:15 cait tcohen++
15:31 mtompset Now where is NateC popping in and out? ;)
15:32 mtompset He missed the moments of discussion. :)

18:47 cait oh right, the form died.
18:48 cait that's so weird.
19:13 tcohen joined #koha
19:47 mtompset question: what category does fall under?
19:57 * mtompset smiles.
19:57 mtompset I love trivial patches. :)
20:15 drojf joined #koha
20:17 drojf evening #koha
20:18 mtompset Greetings, drojf.
20:18 mtompset How is your weekend thus far?
20:18 drojf hi mtompset
20:18 drojf not very interesting. cleaning out old junk, throwing away a lot of stuff
20:18 cait hi drojf
20:18 drojf and yours?
20:18 wahanui i heard yours was better actually
20:18 cait drojf++
20:19 drojf hi cait
20:19 drojf i get karma for cleaning? :D
20:20 cait yes :)
20:20 mtompset Nothing much. I just submitted a trivial patch for
20:20 drojf cait: cool, i should do it more often then
20:20 * mtompset laughs.
20:20 cait you will have to send evidence then soon
20:21 cait sending cookies would get you karma too
20:21 * cait is just making a suggestion
20:21 mtompset if he doesn't, will you deduct the karma?
20:21 mtompset any kind of preference on the cookies, cait? ;)
20:22 cait anything with chocolate and nuts, except hazelnuts works
20:22 cait i did that a while ago
20:25 drojf shelf?
20:25 drojf too late for english
20:25 cait yeah
20:25 cait but you started - that counts :)
20:27 mtompset Aaaaah! query->redirect takes a -cookie parameter . :)
20:27 drojf i take a -cookie paramter
20:27 drojf parameter even
20:27 cait me too
20:30 drojf i have so many power supplies, it's unbelievable. i think i will have to spend half a day searching the web to find out for which ones i got a device and which ones are orphaned
20:31 cait heh
21:07 drojf if i find non-utf8-encoding in a file, is that considered a bug?
21:09 drojf likein ilsdi: xmldecl => '<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?>',
21:11 jcamins Yes.
21:14 drojf the cool thing is, it outputs xml in latin1 or whatever that is and then inside it uses utf8 for the marc data :)
21:15 jcamins Of course it is.
21:19 drojf ok i'll fix that then, thanks jcamins
21:25 cait drojf++ for fixing things :)
21:25 drojf maybe it wouldn't be bad to have ILS-DI as component in bugzilla?
21:26 cait hm yeah, not sure who can do that, maybe rangi or gmcharlt
21:26 cait is there one for webservices?
21:26 drojf no. there is an extra one for sip2
21:26 cait hm
21:26 drojf and one for self checkout
21:27 cait hm the second is maybe the web based one
21:27 gmcharlt ILS-DI is too specific, but a component for web services seems reasonable to me
21:28 drojf gmcharlt: can you magically make that appear?
21:28 * gmcharlt waves magic wand with a phoenix feather
21:28 gmcharlt ...
21:28 cait hehe
21:28 gmcharlt nothing
21:28 drojf :D
21:28 * gmcharlt goes to the BZ administration page instead
21:28 cait we totally belive in you :)
21:29 * cait has booked her hotel for reno tonight :)
21:29 drojf what are you doing in reno tonight?
21:29 gmcharlt OK, that worked better -- there's a component for Web services now
21:29 cait drojf: :P
21:30 drojf yay
21:30 drojf gmcharlt++
21:31 cait gmcharlt++ :)
21:37 drojf we use UTF-8, not utf-8, right? i think i saw a bug for that but can't find it now
21:38 cait no idea
21:39 cait can't remember a bug hm
21:41 drojf looks like that was specific to :encode(UTF-8). bug 7816
21:41 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7816 minor, P5 - low, ---, colin.campbell, RESOLVED FIXED, use encoding(UTF-8) not utf-8 for output streams
21:54 drojf did something happen to git-bz or bz again? i get Failed to attach patch to bug 10549, status=200
21:54 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=10549 trivial, P5 - low, ---, mirko, NEW , ILS-DI should not use ISO-8851-9 encoding
21:54 cait hm
21:55 cait sometimes it give sme that hwen i try to change to a status that needs some other set first
21:55 cait maybe try assigning the bug to yourself
21:56 drojf i did that
21:56 cait hm it's still set to NEW?
21:56 drojf oh
21:56 * cait switches to assigned
21:56 cait try again? :)
21:56 cait nt sure it will work
21:56 cait but worth trying
21:57 drojf no
21:57 cait try git bz attach without -e
21:58 drojf i did
21:58 cait still not working?
21:58 cait are you logged into bugzilla?
21:58 drojf well, not again after you changed it
21:58 drojf yes
21:58 cait hmpf
21:58 cait no iea
21:58 jcamins You updated?
21:59 drojf jcamins: updated what? i am on the fishsoup branch with git-bz if that is what you mean
22:00 jcamins That's what I meant.
22:00 cait drojf: did you just update?
22:00 cait fo rme it didn't work immediately
22:00 drojf no
22:00 cait i think closing/reopening/rebooting fixed it
22:00 drojf some time ago
22:00 cait whatever, it suddenly started working
22:01 drojf i think i have used it already, but i don't remember for what :)
22:01 cait hm
22:01 drojf maybe i did not and it never worked
22:01 cait try walking around the canal... then it will owrk
22:01 drojf heh
22:02 cait :)
22:02 cait going to sleep guys, have a nice rest of your days :)
22:02 drojf good night cait
22:02 cait left #koha
22:22 drojf no, can't make it work. checked the symlink, everything looks ok
22:47 drojf when i renew really long overdue books, i renew them to a date in the past. like from 12.01.2013 to 19.01.2013. is that a feature that i don't understand?
22:48 drojf (01/12/2013 to 01/19/2013 for US people)
22:48 jcamins drojf: a kind of iffy feature, but yes.
22:49 jcamins You can change your it by adjusting renewalbase.
22:50 tcohen joined #koha
22:51 drojf hm but if you choose the old date as renewalbase, wouldn't it make sense to check if it is in the past and maybe say it's impossible?
22:52 jcamins drojf: probably.
22:52 drojf or is the idea that i use up all my x renewals one after the other and see if i reach the present? :)
22:52 jcamins I'm not sure.
22:53 drojf i think current date is usual in germany so i will probably forget about it soon
22:54 drojf i would not make it to half a year of overdue in real life too
22:57 tcohen hi #koha
22:58 tcohen i'm catching up with 3.12.x rmaint work
22:58 drojf hi tcohen
22:58 tcohen if you have any thoughts on patches that should go into it, just let me know
22:58 tcohen besides that, hows' your weekend drojf ?
23:00 drojf quiet. did some cleaning and then tried to attach a patch to git but git-bz did not let me
23:00 drojf attach a patch to bz, not to git
23:02 cjh hey tcohen :)
23:02 tcohen hi cjh
23:03 tcohen how r u doin?
23:03 cjh good thank you, in theory I have just finished my studies :)
23:03 cjh how are things on your end?
23:04 tcohen really fine thanks
23:04 tcohen i have winter holidays next week so trying to make some pushes into 3.12.x today
23:05 cjh awesome, we should see some of that trickle down to 3.8 soon then :)
23:05 tcohen hope so
23:11 * drojf leaves
23:11 drojf good night #koha
23:15 tcohen we are pushing patches this weekend folks
23:20 cjh team 3.12.x
23:22 jcamins I think Myshkin is very sensibly sleeping in the bedroom.
23:22 jcamins Last night I gave up and turned on the A/C.
23:23 jcamins (so the bedroom is still cooler than the rest of the apartment)
23:23 tcohen heh, its cold down here jcamins
23:23 * jcamins wishes it were cold.
23:26 tcohen do we have any SQL syntax checker?
23:26 tcohen (tests)
23:27 jcamins tcohen: nope. It'd be nice if we did, but it turns out that there's no way to test MySQL short of running it.
23:30 tcohen bgkriegel's work on the authority frameworks looks great
23:37 * jcamins contemplates search result pages.
