00:09 JoeLib001 Hello Everyone. :-) I have another problem. XD
00:10 JoeLib001 When I go to receive an order, I don't find any pending orders.
00:10 JoeLib001 I tried deleting the order and re-creating it in case it was an issue with the particular order, but that did not fix my issue.
00:11 dcook I don't really have time to help you at the moment, JoeLib001, but I would check if you have IndependentBranches turned on
00:11 dcook I would also check to see if you're using a library filter on the pending order page
00:11 dcook Both those things could prevent you from seeing a pending order if you don't belong to/look for the right branch
00:11 dcook If I recall correctly ;)
00:11 * dcook buries his head in code again
00:16 JoeLib001 I'm not sure what you mean by, if I am using a library filter on the pending order page. I don't see an option for that.

01:12 JoeLib001 That MySQL Report shows the items I have not received and should be in the pending orders list.
01:13 JoeLib001 For some reason it doesn't show the pending orders when I go to receive them on the invoice.
01:13 JoeLib001 I did an update from 3.14.x to 3.16 recently, so that's the only thing I can think of that could have broken something.

01:25 rangi dcook:  <-- more ammo to visit wellington
01:29 eythian I wonder how many people I know are in that
01:34 JoeLib001 Should I be able to see a list of things, if I look at the aqorders_trafers table?

02:46 dcook Hmm
02:49 wizzyrea < possibly a demotivator for visiting wellington... but still look at the skill of those pilots. Awesome.
02:49 dcook Pondering whether to make a web service or an internal API...
02:50 wizzyrea actually it should be a motivator, because if they can land in that, they aren't going to crash. :P
02:50 dcook Well already made the web service but not wondering it was such a good idea..
02:52 dcook Given the coding guidelines...not really sure what to do
02:52 dcook Just want to read the leader and say what the material config is
03:02 dcook So if we're not supposed to shoehorn procedural code into OO...what do we do with procedural code that should be centralized but not put in C4?
03:04 dcook Meh screw it
03:13 slef joined #koha
03:17 irma joined #koha
03:46 dcook Hmm, TT why are you not passing my variable...
03:47 eythian wahanui: exuse
03:47 wahanui eythian: excuse me?
03:47 eythian wahanui: exuses
03:47 wahanui eythian: sorry...
03:47 eythian wahanui: excuses
03:47 wahanui eythian: It was OK before you touched it.
03:47 eythian ^-- dcook
03:47 dcook hehe
03:48 dcook It's still ok. It's just not adding the addition :p
03:49 dcook Hmm, because it's somehow getting nuked before it's passed to the template...
03:49 dcook Ahhh
03:49 dcook I'm an idiot :p
03:50 dcook "Kids, that's why you don't re-declare your variable with "my" after you've already done it higher up in the script."
03:50 eythian it does warn you about that you know :)
03:50 dcook It should...but it isn't :/
03:50 dcook Ah
03:51 dcook Because this script has warnings turned off for some reason
03:51 dcook #use warnings; FIXME - Bug 2505
03:51 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=2505 major, P1 - high, ---, gmcharlt, ASSIGNED , enable Perl warnings in all modules and scripts
03:52 eythian ah
03:53 dcook Now let's see if I remove all the warns that I put in there for debugging...
03:59 dcook Hurray, all good
04:12 dcook If anyone wants an easy sign off... bug 9093
04:13 huginn Bug[…]w_bug.cgi?id=9093 normal, P5 - low, ---, dcook, Needs Signoff , 008 forgetting what material type was chosen
04:16 * eythian wants code to have an autorejection if it's undercommented.
04:17 dcook Ugh, just noticed one of my comments isn't completely correct :/
04:17 dcook May as well add more comments while fixing that one :p
04:23 dcook Hmm, better but I realize I could've made a comment slightly better...
04:23 dcook Oh well. Food time.
04:34 eythian holy crap, my new way of doing facets just worked
04:34 eythian that is very surprising
04:34 eythian now, beer o'clock, followed by whisky o'clock
04:35 dcook well done, eythian!
04:35 * dcook didn't get food after all..
04:36 eythian it worked first time even.
04:36 eythian now you can flag specific fields to be faceted in the database, so you might want to do an author search that includes 245$c, but you don't want that faceted for authors. So now you can!
04:36 * eythian &
04:36 eythian have a good weekend.

05:26 dcook How does one publish with the splinter review?
05:27 dcook I'm not seeing a publish button :/
05:27 dcook Ah
05:27 dcook On the overview page
05:27 dcook That's a bit hidden..

06:06 dcook Beer o'clock is already over? :(
06:14 * cait waves
06:15 cait have to run... last day at the conference
06:27 dcook Huh...that OPAC Marc view kinda blows a bit..
06:28 dcook Having no subfield codes is super handy...
06:28 * dcook is apparently ornery today
06:36 mtompset dcook: just replied.
06:37 dcook Cool. I'll take a look next week :)
06:37 mtompset I'll have a minor revision up by next week.

06:57 mtompset Is anyone here versed in the arcane magicks of that secretive query language we use?
06:57 mtompset is($QParser->target_syntax('biblioserver', 'smith'), '@or @or @attr 1=1016 @attr 4=6 "smith" @attr 9=20 @attr 2=102 @attr 4=6 "smith" @attr 9=34 @attr 2=102 @attr 4=6 "smith"', 'super simple keyword query');
06:58 mtompset Can anyone tell me why that might fail?
07:00 mtompset YUCK!
07:01 mtompset prove -v t/QueryParser.t is giving me different results each time. All fails, but different fails.
07:03 Joubu hello #koha
07:04 mtompset Joubu: Can I blame you? :)
07:04 Joubu mtompset: yes, of course :)
07:05 mtompset Greetings, Joubu. Not really blame. :) But some of the tests that fail randomly on me were added by you.
07:05 sophie_m joined #koha
07:05 Joubu which ones ?
07:05 wahanui which ones are those?
07:05 mtompset in t/QueryParser.t
07:05 mtompset tests 13-17.
07:05 Joubu I wrote tests in QueryPerser.t, really?
07:05 mtompset I don't think you added all of them, but you did for bug 11202
07:05 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=11202 enhancement, P4, ---, mathsabypro, Pushed to Stable , Improve UNIMARC biblio indexing
07:07 mtompset Well, okay. Maybe you tested them? I just looked at the git blame. :)
07:08 mtompset The problem is I am getting a fail on it, but it isn't always the same fail.
07:08 mtompset Only 6 is a common failure, but that wasn't yours.
07:08 Joubu ho yes, randomly... :-/
07:09 Joubu mtompset: I suppose the tests passed when I changed them. So maybe should we know which commit breaks them
07:09 mtompset OH! I see why they are failing.
07:10 mtompset The order of the parts of the query aren't always in the same order.
07:10 Joubu tcohen told something about that some days ago
07:11 Joubu something about hash keys ordering
07:11 mtompset AH!
07:11 mtompset Hashes would be problematic.

07:43 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=12182 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, gmcharlt, In Discussion , Koha installation problem in Ubuntu
07:43 mtompset Feel free to rename, etc.
07:43 Joubu ok thanks. I will try to provide a patch
07:44 mtompset If you write it, I will test. :)
07:44 mtompset Because this kind of sucks, not being able to 'make test'.
07:56 yohann joined #koha
07:58 Joubu mtompset: hum, not sure I will find the time to deep into the QP code :-/
07:58 mtompset No problem.
07:58 Joubu It does not look trivial
07:58 mtompset No, it does not.
08:12 mtompset Joubu: What do you think? What if we took the string and sorted the parts, and compared it against a sorted parts string? Would that suffice?
08:13 mtompset That would be a secondary routine in the .t file, not actual code.
08:22 mtompset Well, have a great day. I need to get at least 3 hours of sleep. :)

13:45 jl- morning.. I uploaded a 1 GB mrc file via the web interface and attempted a batch import. job report has been stuck at 25% for an hour and top doesn't show any intense proccesses (like bulk-marc-imp) anymore
13:45 jl- is it safe to assume it failed?
13:45 jl- maxid of biblio is 106k -- should have been around 260k records in thatfile
13:46 jl- so it seems like 100k records made it in, and then it stopped
13:49 tcohen that size is prone to timeouts
13:50 tcohen i'd split the file and try with smaller pieces
13:52 jl- what size do you recommend tcohen
13:52 jl- 100mb?
13:53 jl- also, is it similiar to evergreen that I need to attach copies/holdings to make biblio's visible in the catalog
13:53 jl- ?
13:53 tcohen you need to attach holdings in order to tell Koha you have those copies, yes
13:53 tcohen they are coded on repeatable field 952
13:54 jl- is there a way to batch attach copies for all existing bibs in koha?
13:55 tcohen[…]data_fields_(9xx)
13:59 tcohen i don't know jl, never did that
13:59 grharry Hi!! what is the  project status of KOHA using SOLR indexing? I see a some e-mails on the list and some limited confs here and there and thats it!! Is there any progress on the this ?
13:59 tcohen but there's the Perl API to write a script to do it if needed
14:06 talljoy joined #koha
14:09 jl- tcohen: if I have a failed import, what's a safe way of reverting or rebuilding the database?
14:10 jl- I'm running "undo import into catalog" right now perhaps that will restore it
14:21 paul_p hi grharry = the status of Solr is bad. We (BibLibre, my company) made some work on it, but the community did not jump-in enough to help us. Se we stopped working on it. And now, it's not working anymore, and we (community) are moving toward ElasticSearch in the future, probably (funding still hoped)

17:12 miki-koha yes, I have it offline, just want to make it visible from my site...
17:14 miki-koha I must go right now, if someone can send me a tutorial or something for how to make koha visible from his own site, thanks in advance... Please email it to

17:54 jl-[…]blionumber=283447 ok I have this record here with an attached copy for location 'Centerville' -- but it will only show up when i search in 'All Libraries'
18:03 jl- searching the same title with 'Centerville' selected yields no results
