02:27 eythian quiet day here today
02:29 dcook Yarp
02:29 dcook tis a Dspace day pour moi
02:31 eythian pour you indeed.
02:33 dcook hehe
02:34 dcook I'd love to get done my DSpace work so that I can do more Koha work...
02:34 dcook Specifically that OAI harvester
02:36 dcook I wish DSpace did tags for individual releases and not just the branch..
02:36 dcook Wait a tick
02:36 dcook They do and I'm just stupid
02:36 dcook :p
02:36 dcook Must just be overly hungry
02:37 eythian holy carp, ES searching on the staff client just worked.
02:37 eythian that's a surprise.
02:39 dcook \o/
02:39 eythian hmm, though my query parsing doesn't understand a few things that the staff client does
02:39 eythian like su,complete-subfield:{Courts}
02:42 dcook O_o
02:42 dcook Wazzat?
02:43 eythian if you view a record in the staff client, and click on a subject, that's what the query is.
02:43 eythian @wunder nzwn
02:43 huginn` eythian: The current temperature in Wellington, New Zealand is 17.0°C (2:00 PM NZST on May 13, 2015). Conditions: Mostly Cloudy. Humidity: 72%. Dew Point: 12.0°C. Pressure: 29.68 in 1005 hPa (Steady).
02:43 eythian heh mostly cloudy
02:43 wizzyrea yeah, it's leaving off the fact that the clouds are falling out of the sky.
02:44 dcook Huh... that seems special
02:44 dcook I wonder where the { } come into the picture
02:44 dcook clouds are falling out of the sky?
02:44 dcook @wunder syd
02:44 huginn` dcook: The current temperature in Sydney, New South Wales is 16.0°C (12:30 PM AEST on May 13, 2015). Conditions: Clear. Humidity: 27%. Dew Point: -3.0°C. Pressure: 29.98 in 1015 hPa (Falling).
02:45 dcook Hmm, that's probably about right..
02:45 eythian dcook: I've seen it elsewhere, I just transmogrify them into "
02:46 eythian but my stuff isn't converting it into something that ES can understand like it should.
02:46 wizzyrea (it's raining)
02:47 eythian I think because it doesn't know what complete-subfield is
02:48 wizzyrea TAB BANKRUPTCY
02:48 tcohen joined #koha
02:48 dcook TAB BANKRUPTCY?
02:49 dcook yo tcohen
02:49 dcook eythian: I seem to recall {} meaning something to Zebra, but I don't know if we need them
02:49 dcook I think they are escape characters?
02:49 dcook Hehe. Just did this query: "indexdata zebra escape"
02:50 dcook[…]erymodel-rpn.html
02:50 dcook "Escaping PQF keywords and other non-parseable XPath constructs with '{ }' to prevent client-side PQF parsing syntax errors:"
02:50 dcook I want to say there is another reference somewhere..
02:51 eythian ah right, that makes sense
02:52 wizzyrea it's when you give up on having tabs and close them all out of irritation
02:52 dcook Ahh, I thought you meant TAB... like the gambling folk
02:52 eythian yeah, I have 315 tabs open at the moment, I ought to do that.
02:52 wizzyrea hah! no
02:52 wizzyrea 315, that is excessive.
02:53 eythian they just pile up
02:53 wizzyrea I think I had 50 and that was too many.
02:53 wizzyrea it's when I have 10+ different koha intranets open and all I see up there is [K}
02:53 dcook eythian:[…]ls-police-belgium
02:53 wizzyrea [K]
02:53 eythian 316 now
02:53 eythian thanks dcook
02:54 wizzyrea hahaha
02:54 dcook hehe
02:54 aleisha joined #koha
02:55 eythian[…]89074445089767424 <-- ahahaha
02:55 eythian "Police run over 1 of the 3 zebras"
02:56 wizzyrea lool
02:57 dcook Hmm, I'm not convinced that curly braces actually do anything 99% of the time
02:57 dcook hehe
02:57 eythian it seems that they allow things inside them that would cause syntax errors elsewhere.
02:57 eythian wahanui: zebra
02:57 wahanui well, zebra is a fielded free text indexing and retrieval engine with a Z39.50 front-end. You can use any compatible, commercial, or freeware Z39.50 client to access data stored in Zebra. or the search engine koha uses
02:58 ngourlay joined #koha
02:58 eythian wahanui: zebra is also loose in Brussels
02:58 wahanui okay, eythian.
02:58 dcook I guess you might have a subject with a reserved character yeah.
03:00 dcook Hmm... although I'm not actually seeing that in practice..
03:01 dcook Hmm... those special characters look like they're being stripped out by the tokenizer anyway..
03:01 * dcook shrugs
03:01 dcook Back to DSpace
03:01 dcook And maybe lunch..
03:05 eythian <-- neat
03:07 eythian[…]s/AmldEDANL0nEpl3 <-- dcook, this might interest you.
03:08 wizzyrea that *is* neat
03:09 eythian dcook: I recommend starting with Scree::Transmissions
03:09 mtompset_ joined #koha
03:09 eythian err
03:10 eythian Scree:Transmissions
03:11 dcook eythian: What's that? :S
03:12 dcook Music?
03:12 wahanui Music is fine :)
03:12 eythian it's a (now non-existant I think) NZ band that I quite like.
03:12 eythian and just remembered now when poking through my music
03:12 dcook Cool. I'll make a reminder to check it out when I'm at home
03:12 dcook Ah, apparently they're on Spotify as ewll
03:12 dcook well*
03:13 dcook Hmm, I wonder how good Spotify is with obscure French Canadian stuff..
03:13 dcook Starting Scree:Transmissions now
03:13 dcook Dang, they seem to have everything...
03:14 dcook No wonder they spent over 800 million on royalties last year
03:18 dcook Now let's see if I can remember the band that did cover versions of Nino Ferrer's songs..
03:19 eythian damn, I'm going to have to add a bit more intelligence to this string processor to handle multi-part freeform index specifications.
03:19 eythian rats
03:24 dcook Oh... listening to this song is not making my hunger go away :[…]hons-t119926.html
03:24 dcook Yes, it's a song about pickles. Well, and other food.
03:24 dcook I think it's catchy though :P
03:25 eythian Give peas a chance.
03:25 dcook :p
03:28 dcook Ok, hunger is going to great a problem
03:28 dcook bbiab
03:31 * eythian cheats and just removes anything after a , in this context. If you need that, use the query parameter that's there for that purpose.
03:31 eythian (until all this is replaced with a real query parser anyway.)
03:37 wizzyrea cheater. Cheater.
03:37 wizzyrea j/k you're lovely, you're awesome. don't change.
03:40 eythian This is a sacrifice I'm willing to make, the only real way of fixing it would be to build a parser, and screw doing that right now :)
03:41 * wizzyrea imagines you like an aztec on a pyramid sacrificing everything after commas to the gods of elasticsearch
03:41 wizzyrea maybe with a little crazy eye
03:41 eythian haha
04:02 mtompset Have a great day, eythian wizzyrea dcook #koha. :)
04:21 dcook I do like DSpace's overlay setup
04:21 dcook You can copy the source of files you want to customize into a different path
04:22 dcook Then when it's built, it'll use your customized overlay version rather than the release's version
04:22 dcook Of course, it doesn't help if you modify the built files and don't remember to put them back in version control
04:22 * dcook is glad he doesn't have to deal with that right now
04:22 dcook I think I mentioned recently that Git is the best?
04:24 eythian hmm, the problem with that is that if the original files are changed in an update, you've got no tracking of your own versions.
04:24 dcook Hmm?
04:24 dcook Ah, yeah
04:25 dcook You have to be pretty careful with updates
04:25 dcook I'm upgrading someone from 4.0 to 4.3 right now
04:25 dcook So I can copy over the existing overlays from 4.0, but I have to vet them against the updated versions before actually building :/
04:26 dcook But then I'm just diffing files between the release path and the overlay path

07:12 dcook Did you change password lately, magnuse?
07:13 magnuse nope, but i did change my email :-)
07:14 dcook That could do it?
07:15 dcook Ooh that reminds me..
07:16 magnuse yup, that was it
07:16 magnuse dcook++
07:17 Viktor joined #koha
07:18 Viktor Greetings #koha :)
07:18 cait joined #koha
07:19 dcook Hey Viktor and cait
07:19 dcook magnuse: Hurray!
07:19 magnuse hiya cait and Viktor
07:19 magnuse i hear a rumour that Viktor will be promoting koha to lots of libraries today...
07:20 Viktor True magnuse.
07:20 Viktor But I sort of do that one or two times a week now :)
07:21 Viktor We have a visit with 15 personson who are collecting info for a bigger meeting with the whole 49 "kommuner".
07:22 Viktor They want to know what they can tell the other communities what Koha can do and what to expect from our project.
07:22 magnuse very cool
07:22 magnuse Viktor++
07:22 dcook :D
07:23 Viktor A double check: We have both hired programmers in house and consultants. Is it still frowned upon if consultants sign off on code from our in house people (and vice versa)?
07:23 magnuse yeah, ideally it should be people from "different organizations"
07:23 Viktor It feels a little on the verge since both have a common employer (being the project)
07:24 Viktor magnuse: Yes I had that feeling :)
07:24 magnuse "Preferably, patch writer and patch signer should not be from the same company or institution."[…]nt-patch_Workflow
07:25 magnuse it does say "Preferably"...
07:25 magnuse but i think that is mostly for extreme cases, like if you are working on something like an API that only people in your org has access to
07:25 magnuse but even then it is best if someone independent tests for regressions
07:27 Viktor magnuse: Perhaps if we do signoff between us but still leave it with "needs signoff" and a note that it's been written/tested by different companies but with the same emmployer.
07:27 Viktor ?
07:27 gaetan_B joined #koha
07:28 dcook yeah, I think that seems reasonable
07:28 gaetan_B hello
07:28 dcook I think other people have done that
07:28 dcook salut gaetan_B
07:28 magnuse Viktor: yeah, sounds like a good idea
07:28 Viktor Then we could still catch problems early and have the code up publicly as fast as possible.
07:28 magnuse yup
07:28 Viktor Thanks dcook, magnuse. Think we'll go with that.
07:28 dcook totally
07:29 dcook The more testing and QA the better!
07:29 Viktor Indeed :)
07:29 dcook Viktor: I really want to get that OAI code posted at some point so that folks can test it and tell me all the ways that it's horrible ;)
07:29 dcook Alas, Koha is only one of three projects I have at the moment, and the other two are occupying more of my time these days
07:30 * cait waves
07:30 Viktor dcook - Didn't you actually post it "as is" in the thread the other day? Have a feeling I saw a patch that I never had the time to check up on.
07:30 * Viktor waves at cait
07:31 Viktor dcook I can write much more horrible code then you ever could ;)
07:32 Viktor (or that patch might be confused with another discussion)
07:32 cait Viktor: in theory you could now - we changed the rules a bit - but the way magnuse suggested is my preference - the more sign offs the better :)
07:32 dcook Viktor: Yeah, I did, but then Andreas Mace got in touch, so I've been thinking about trying to find some time to work on it again!
07:33 dcook But I won't be working on Koha for the rest of the week, so... don't know
07:33 dcook DSpace eating up lots of time at the moment too..
07:33 dcook In fact, I already should've left work 30 minutes ago!
07:33 magnuse bad DSpace
07:34 Viktor cait: We'll test but leave it with "needs signoff" then. Better safe than sorry and it's no hurry yet for 3.22 :) Or at least I hope it's not :)
07:34 cait i hope we can make some progress on the overdues devs soon
07:34 cait i am interested to see those moving :)
07:34 magnuse yay
07:34 cait lots of good things out ther eactually, always lots to do
07:36 Viktor dcook - I know there is funding for getting OAI done. And people that will be happy when it's finished :) Hope you can find the time to get it going again - much more efficient that you finish it. But I see how too much to do is a problem..
07:36 magnuse atheia++ for more work on the ill module
07:36 Viktor cait: Are you referring to our overdue patches that inlibro is doing?
07:37 Viktor cait: I really, really, really need those and it's one of those things that would make me sleep better :)
07:38 Viktor cait: I realized that testing those right was a bit of bother for me so I'm very happy to have better hackers at hand who need something to do :)
07:41 paul_p joined #koha
07:42 Viktor I am a bit worried however. I know kivilahtio is doing dev that is touching the same files so I wonder how we should get things coordinated.
07:43 drojf joined #koha
07:44 drojf morning #koha
07:44 alex_a joined #koha
07:45 magnuse Viktor: that is indeed an interesting question...
07:45 magnuse moin drojf
07:46 Viktor morning drojf
07:46 drojf hei magnuse, hej Viktor
07:47 Viktor magnuse: It is. And it worries me. I'm tempted to get the patches done as fast as we can and then yell "No regressions" :)
07:48 Viktor magnuse: But I know that his patch was creating a better infrastructure for the messages so that's not overly productive.
07:48 magnuse Viktor: that might be the only way to do it
07:48 magnuse or make kivi base his work on yours
07:48 magnuse but then he gets more work if your patches need redoing to get through qa
07:50 Viktor magnuse: It might :) But I think kivi have his hands full and might abandon the issue if it becomes extra work.
07:51 Viktor Think I'll have to get everybody in touch with each other over email or something and plan how to solve this.
07:51 cdickinson joined #koha
07:56 magnuse Viktor: sounds good
08:16 Jul joined #koha
08:18 cait Viktor: i think right now your patches are there, so we should work on those - for overdues
08:19 cait Viktor: i am not sure whta kivi plans, but the code hasn't hit us yet
08:20 cait coordinating and talking to each other is of course the best way to solve it :)
08:25 cait @later tell rangi could you take a look at bug 13196 for inclusion in 3.18?
08:25 huginn` cait: The operation succeeded.
08:39 pablito joined #koha
08:40 pablito does anyone have some experience cataloging journal articles into koha?
08:45 cait we have some libraries doing it - but they catalog with another software and then the data is imported into koha
08:45 cait maybe i can still help out a bit
08:45 cait what's the question?
08:45 wahanui hmmm... the question is "What is the meaning of life, the universe and everything?"
08:48 cait @later tell rangi - forget it - it's already in
08:48 huginn` cait: The operation succeeded.
08:50 pablito cait, we have over 100 printed journals in our library and I want to put the article titles, author etc. into koha
08:50 cait what we do is having separate records for those
08:50 pablito I already created biblios for these journals already
08:51 magnuse pablito: do you know about analytics in koha?
08:51 cait yeah, easyanalytics is one option
08:51 pablito I have been reading about analytics, but it's not clear to me yet
08:51 pablito ok
08:51 magnuse
08:51 cait ah yes, that page is excellent
08:51 cait ashimema++
08:53 pablito so can you explain a bit the overall process of putting article titles, etc into koha
08:53 pablito ?
08:55 pablito maybe it's better if i give you my situation now
08:56 pablito I've already created serial biblios for the journals
08:57 pablito now in each serial biblio, I created multiple items to correspond to the articles of a journal
08:58 magnuse ah, that is probably not the way to do it
08:58 pablito sorry, multiple items corresponding to the issues of a journal title
08:58 magnuse yeah, that makes sense
08:58 magnuse then yoo catalogue the articles much the same way you catalog books
08:58 magnuse with the title in 245a etc
09:02 pablito is there a sample MARC files somewhere that I can start with?
09:05 cait pablito: we link journal to articles - not issue to article - if you want to do that you coud check the manual for the Easyanalytics feature
09:05 cait but yu have to decide for one way or the other, as they are exclusive
09:06 cait look for 773
09:07 pablito i see
09:08 cait we are not using Easyanalytics - just keep in mind ther eare at least 2 different ways of doing things
09:09 pablito ok
09:09 pablito here's my library's catalog: http://libraryjerusalem.unisal[…]blionumber=183049
09:09 pablito The journal is titled Concilium
09:09 pablito there are multiple issues of which I have assigned called number
09:11 pablito so when I create an article record, I will need to link it to the biblio of Concilium and indicate somehow what issue the article is located in
09:11 cait yeah, you put that in 773
09:11 cait if you look at the lik above
09:12 cait you can see that there is always an In: .<link to the journal> information about issue, pages year etc.
09:12 cait that's from the 773 subfields
09:18 pablito ok, makes sense
09:19 Jul_ joined #koha
09:20 paul_p_ joined #koha
09:21 pablito is Easyanalytics a program like MarcEdit?
09:23 pablito where can I get Easyanalytics?
09:26 drojf easyanalytics is one way to do it in koha. it's not an external software
09:27 pablito ah
09:29 drojf one way as in "an alternative to what cait showed you"
09:29 drojf that said, that's all i know about it, as i do it like it is done in cait's example
09:31 xarragon The 'kohaadmin' user created during setup, does it exist in the SQL database or is it hardcoded into the installation?
09:38 cait xarragon: it's ot in the database, you can find the data about it in your koha-conf.xml
09:38 cait morning drojf, hi xarragon
09:38 drojf it's the database user. a mysql account. that is why you can't use it for regular librarian work
09:39 cait :)
09:39 cait drojf explained it better
09:39 drojf oh did not see what cait said
09:39 drojf it's basically the same ;)
09:39 drojf hi cait
09:39 slef magnuse: our afflicted user isn't seeing that problem since clearing their cache :-/
09:39 slef magnuse: they said they'd already done that though, so iDunno
09:40 slef morning everyone
09:40 magnuse kia ora slef
09:40 drojf hi slef
09:40 slef Welcome to chapter 198316951 of I hate MSIE
09:40 magnuse hehe
09:40 magnuse i'll have another go at the cache then
09:40 slef I'll tell you any more details once I get them
09:40 xarragon drojf: Ah, ok. Thanks. I saw some lines in C4::Auth about a 'superuser' and demo user, and database had no 'kohaadmin' entry. Thanks for the explanation.
09:41 cait xarragon: that's why it's not recommended to use it for anything outside of running an update - it has no borrowernumber
09:41 cait no home library etc.
09:42 cait so you shoudl always work inside koha with a real user
09:42 cait if you see lines referring to superlibrarian that is the 'top' permission for admins - it means you can basically do everything
09:43 xarragon Yeah I noticed some things were a bit wobbly when using it. I have another user created, but right now I am just playing around learning stuff for a patch we're considering.
09:43 xarragon Sorry if this is basic stuff I could have read in the manual.
09:44 xarragon Interesting design to use the SQL credentials as a default superuser/admin account though. Makes a lot of sense.
09:45 cait we are here to help
09:45 cait and i am not sure where that is fully documented myself
09:45 xarragon While I'm already harassing you, are Intranet users also stored in the 'borrowers' table? I can see no other place, and C4::Auth seems to be querying 'borrowers' primarily?
09:45 cait yes
09:45 cait all user accoutns are stored in borrowers
09:46 cait the difference is that intranet users have permissions - borrowers.flags and 2 separate tables are involved there
09:46 cait so for testing what you normally do is crate a new patron of a staff patron category and give it the 'superlibrarian' permission
09:47 cait it's the first thing that needs to be done after intalling a new koha usually - create a library, create a patron category, create your superlibrarian

10:52 xarragon Nothing feels better than messing directly via the SQL command line into a running Koha install, knowing graceful I usually am when I am hacking at stuff.
10:53 xarragon I prefer to think of the results as a 'learning experience'.
11:04 magnuse it makes you feel so alive ;-)
11:06 xarragon And if it works I stand up, stretching my arms out, screaming "I AM INVINCIBLE!" etc.
11:15 xarragon Running a database application and web server on a 1.8" 4200 RPM laptop disk really is asking for slowness..
11:19 xarragon Got to love the 'superlibrarian' label.. I get an image in my mind of someone with a cape and close-fitting clothes.

13:44 xarragon I have one question: Koha on a Windows server; is it possible?
13:44 Joubu NOOOOO
13:45 Joubu ;)
13:46 drojf and. WHY? /o\
13:46 drojf :P
13:47 tcohen xarragon: it is possible, just launch a Debian 8 virtual machine on VirtualBox to run Koha
13:49 mtompset Joubu++ # I feel the same way
13:49 mtompset tcohen: You forgot to qualify that it is not recommended for production that way. :P
13:50 tcohen ah, but xarragon didn't ask that
13:50 drojf it's not not recommended either, is it? :P
13:51 tcohen :-P
13:51 mtompset tcohen is current RM for 3.20 -- kind of looks like one.
13:51 mtompset And if someone asks if a gun can kill a person, do you answer just yes? :P
13:52 mtompset drojf++ # Exactly, the intent is important
13:52 tcohen many people likes to run production stuff on top of the VirtualBox hypervisor, who cares if it is run on windows server or linux who runs the hypervisor?
13:53 tcohen we use Xen btw
13:53 drojf as long as dealing with the windows part is not my job, go for it ;)
13:54 mtompset drojf: It will be, because the next question will be how to do all the networking.
13:54 drojf i'd recommend a virtualbox irc channel :)
13:54 xarragon Nah, I was just curious. I saw there was some mailing list called koha-win32 back in 2007 or so.
13:54 tcohen drojf: exactly. as a Koha support provider I have clients that have their whole infrastructure built on Microsoft products, and provide me with a incredibly-performant Debian VPS to do my job
13:54 drojf (i suppose host-only adapter + nat adapter would work in windows too)
13:55 mtompset xarragon: The problem with trying to run koha natively on windows is a lack of libraries.
13:55 xarragon Also, Sweden is very Microsoft-centric, so many places will throw a hizzy-fit if they are asked to support anything that does not come with Solitaire and Minesweeper.
13:56 tcohen xarragon: heh
13:56 jcamins My experience with VirtualBox in production is that the host does not matter, it's going to be fussy regardless.
13:56 tcohen jcamins++
13:56 mtompset xarragon: I actually tried to get it to work recently under a windows technical preview.
13:56 mtompset The missing perl libraries were the killer.
13:56 jcamins HyperV seems pretty good, though.
13:57 drojf tcohen: the library where i started working with koha had ms hyper-v as virtualisation host. while i would not touch that myself (and it seemed unreliable sometimes), koha worked fine
13:57 drojf heh
13:57 xarragon Okay, thanks for the info. I was just curious..
13:58 tcohen Micro$oft is a top-10 linux kernel contributor, because they wanted near-perfect support for linux on hyper-v
13:58 jcamins bshum just mentioned HyperV working well in another channel.
13:58 tcohen top-20
13:59 drojf i remember at least one case where weird things happened with snapshots in hyperv. but i was not involved myself and it may have been user error too
13:59 barton I have a partner who wants to do date range searches on acquisition date from the OPAC
14:00 barton I'm guessing that this will require some changes to C4::Search
14:01 tcohen barton: probably to the queryparser?
14:02 tcohen barton: take a look at QueryParser
14:02 barton k.
14:03 tcohen it might be implemented already, and the problem would consist on a front-end thing
14:03 barton ok.

18:47 wahanui mtompset: sorry...
18:47 mtompset bug 10503
18:47 wahanui bug 10503 is relevant
18:48 tcohen is it true that the call is wrong?
18:48 mtompset which call?
18:49 tcohen we should ask the Memoize::Memcached maintainer
18:50 tcohen but i'd say memoize_memcached can handle both a Cache::Memcached object or a hashref of options flawlessly
18:50 mtompset Remember that discussion is 2+ years old.
18:51 tcohen[…]oize/
18:51 tcohen i'll take a look mtompset
18:52 tcohen it might be worth making it more explicit (i.e. passing the actual params)
18:52 mtompset Just remember, you triggered this with your article link. :P
18:52 tcohen you don't blame google if you find something, right?

19:55 mtompset Well, yes, gmcharlt bug reported the problem, but it is regarding the module which you now maintain.
19:55 tcohen it looks like a WORKSFORME one
19:55 mtompset Sure, you could shift the blame back another level, but there's a limit to how far back you can pass blame. :)
19:56 tcohen from another pov, the patch author wants to change how we use that function, which is fair, but then is not a problem with the library itself
