10:01 cait it's time
10:01 cait let's get started
10:01 ikourmou @cait: is it possible to discuss KohaCon16 a little bit later?
10:01 huginn ikourmou: I'll give you the answer as soon as RDA is ready
10:01 sophie_m cait : we are translating all release notes for our clients. Looking into Koha implies to checkout each release. Wouldn't it be possible to have a link on the release notes page in the wiki with the old releases ?

10:16 cait #topic Hackfest in Berlin
10:16 Topic for #koha is now Hackfest in Berlin (Meeting topic: General IRC meeting 6 April 2016)
10:16 cait drojf: ?
10:16 Oak white shirt here, cait!
10:17 drojf i got ~10 registrations so far and another two or three pending (of up to ~20), which is pretty cool
10:17 cait #link https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]lin_Hackfest_2016
10:17 drojf apart from that… we got the catmandu workshop, we might have a workshop or talk about ILL if atheia can join us
10:17 drojf (maybe magnuse would like to tell something about the norway part too if he can attend?)
10:17 cait #info 10 registrations so far
10:17 cait #info catmandu workshop will happen, other workshops pending
10:18 drojf i think that is it basically
10:18 cait will you advertise on the german mailing list too?
10:18 drojf yes. did not get to that yet
10:18 drojf but i will
10:18 thd Any plans to record informational presentations from HackFest?
10:18 cait I sent the link to a few people - but i think we can get to 20 easily :)
10:19 drojf i think there will be more demand than places easily
10:20 cait is 20 a super hard limit?
10:21 drojf no. there maybe be options for a few more, but not all in one room then
10:21 drojf depending on the weather there is a terrace we can use and i might talk my office mates into sharing that too
10:21 cait cool
10:21 drojf but i would look into that once it is relevant
10:22 cait yeha makes sense
10:22 * cait will be attending :)
10:22 drojf thd: you mean audio/video? that is not planned
10:22 drojf i think we got nz, usa, italy, hopefully uk and maybe norway so far. well and germany of course
10:23 thd drojf: Yes, I mean more or less impromptu introductions to something as tend to occur at hackfests.
10:23 cait drojf: netherlands?
10:23 drojf ah right, still count eythian as nz :D
10:24 cait an incomplete list canbe found here: https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]_is_arriving_when
10:24 drojf that is very incomplete
10:24 cait yeah, people should add themselves :)
10:25 cait i think everyone can tell... i am very excited about this event - and also about kohacon, but we will talk about that later when ikourmou is back
10:25 drojf thd: i do not really have equipment for that. if there are presentations (like slides and stuff) i guess that can be shared
10:25 cait if we take any notes/draw up something that could be shared too
10:26 cait anything else?
10:26 wahanui somebody said anything else was just being crap
10:26 drojf i think that is all
10:26 thd People seldom have anything as formal as slides for hackfest introductions to some technical issues.  Anything that might ...
10:26 drojf for now
10:27 cait #chair drojf
10:27 huginn Current chairs: cait drojf
10:27 thd help with sharing useful stuff more widely would be good.
10:27 drojf thd: if people take notes and want to make them public we can put them in the wiki
10:28 drojf but i can't promise anything, it depends on the people taking part :)
10:28 thd drojf: Of course ;)
10:28 drojf i hope we got some kind of writeuo in the end to see what we have done :)
10:28 drojf writeup
10:29 * cait can try to help with that
10:29 drojf so we skip kohacon 16?
10:29 cait but maybe poke me/remind me about it
10:30 cait i think we skip kohacon16 for now and see when ikourmou comes back
10:30 drojf yep
10:30 cait moving on
10:30 cait #topic Rules for announcements to the main mailinglist
10:30 Topic for #koha is now Rules for announcements to the main mailinglist (Meeting topic: General IRC meeting 6 April 2016)
10:30 drojf we could have done kohacon 17 ;)
10:31 drojf anyway
10:31 drojf my notes are gone
10:31 cait hm?
10:31 drojf simple question is, do we want some kind of rules for recurring announcements on the mailing list or do people not care?
10:31 farooq joined #koha
10:32 cait it seems ot have settled down a bit now
10:32 farooq hello
10:32 wahanui hola, farooq
10:32 drojf personally i think its a little much on a list with not too much traffic to have announcements for an event like every five days, as it happened lately. but that was probably the only event where that ever happened
10:32 farooq i m trying to import data.. in koha library system
10:33 cait hi farooq - we are having an irc meeting right now - can you please come back with your question in half an hour or so?
10:33 thd What kind of rules has anyone thought might be necessary or helpful.
10:33 drojf and i know i am easily annoyed by such things, basically i'd like to know if others are too or if i just filter such things when they happen
10:33 cait you can of course stay and listen in
10:33 ikourmou I'm back
10:33 farooq ok sure
10:33 farooq thank you
10:33 cait i think that case was a little annoying, but maybe don't need a rule yet
10:34 drojf thd: something simple like "do not repeat announcements more often than every 2 weeks" or somehting like that
10:34 cait and see if that is a repeeating thing
10:35 drojf we are not really many people today anyway, maybe i send the question to the list instead
10:35 thd Anyone announcing something every five days where the interval seems disproportionate might simply be sent a simple private reminder about being more polite on a fairly low traffic list.
10:35 davidnind I tend to filter, but I think the recent example was probably a "one off" (hopefully)
10:35 kidclamp thd +1
10:36 thd If there has only been one incident that people can site of something without grave harm, making rules at this point would seem to be overkill.
10:36 drojf thd: i sent a reminder and got a snarky remark
10:36 drojf like "its different info now" which was not true
10:36 drojf which i found even more annoying
10:36 drojf and then they switched the person sending it
10:36 cait ok, seems there is soem tendency to not 'rule' it for now, but also that it is in fact annoying if it happens more often?
10:37 drojf the problem with filterin is, you miss the point where it is annoying for everyone
10:37 thd How 'moderated' is the Koha list currently?
10:37 drojf but i am not the list admin, so…
10:38 cait thd: to my knowledge not moderated if you are subscribed
10:38 drojf thd: i think "not". only mails that are not on the list are moderated, otherwise i don't remember any interference
10:39 thd There have been triggers for moderation in the past for too many CCs.
10:39 thd Usually examined and passed with some delay.
10:39 drojf ok so we wait and see if it happens again and leave it for now?
10:39 cait and back you up next time it happens
10:40 davidnind okay with me
10:40 drojf so, kohacon then?
10:40 thd Even a rule for this annoying incident would need some work to achieve the intended effect if people are ignoring a polite request for politeness.
10:41 cait #info wait and see if there are more repeated announcements, leaving it for now
10:41 cait yes
10:41 cait #topic KohaCon16
10:41 Topic for #koha is now KohaCon16 (Meeting topic: General IRC meeting 6 April 2016)
10:41 cait ikourmou: please start :)
10:41 drojf thd: if there is a rule (or at least i know there are others that think its annoying) it is easier to ask people to stop
10:41 drojf otherwise its maybe just me ;)
10:41 ikourmou ok, thanks for waiting for me!
10:41 ikourmou We have just published the program
10:42 ikourmou
10:42 drojf oops i think i missed the deadline for the final abstract
10:42 ikourmou we have 170 people registered already
10:42 cait #link
10:43 cait very cool, might be the biggest one so far
10:43 ikourmou We seem to be reaching the venue limits...
10:43 drojf how many people can get in? i thought you said ~175?
10:43 cait you might have to account for a few people not showing up - it seems that was some factor in the past
10:43 ikourmou and the registrations deadline is the 22nd of April
10:43 ikourmou yes, it's about 175
10:44 drojf will you have a wait list once its full?
10:44 davidnind a nice "problem" to have!
10:44 cait #info deadline for registrations i April 22nd
10:44 drojf there will probably people cancellinhg
10:44 drojf *be
10:45 cait or not cancelling - from what i remember in argentina and reno some just didn't show ... so it might be ok to add a little on top
10:45 ikourmou yes, we think that even if 200 people register, we could manage
10:45 drojf yeah that is a problem with free events
10:45 drojf not everyone will be in all the time
10:45 ikourmou we don't have any particular problems on the preparation side
10:46 ikourmou I think it goes well so far
10:46 drojf what are your next actions?
10:46 drojf to obvious things seem to be covered
10:46 farooq sorry, i need some urgent solution if possible.. i m getting following error, when i try to upload .mrc file to import data in koha......... error: Upload failed -- unable to store file on server
10:46 ikourmou We are going to update the program with abstracts and bios...
10:46 ikourmou as soon as we have them
10:47 drojf ikourmou: i still have to send that
10:47 drojf will do it today
10:47 ikourmou we are communicating with our sponsors
10:47 drojf farooq: sorry, but we are in a meeting
10:47 ikourmou and try to arrange coffee breaks, meals etc
10:47 cait how is the call for sponsors going in general?
10:48 cait did your receive enough funds for the basics yet? or is there a lot missing?
10:48 ikourmou we will probably be able to cover the budget
10:48 cait #info program to be updated with abstracts and bios soon
10:48 farooq ok.. sorry for interruption... pls help me to fix it as you come back.. thank you for replying
10:49 cait ikourmou: so things are ok?
10:49 ikourmou and provide coffee breaks / lunch / etc for free
10:49 cait cool
10:49 ikourmou yes!
10:49 davidnind great
10:49 LibraryClaire :)
10:50 thd For people travelling from the US, I noted some significantly lower air fares especially on KLM in the last couple of weeks which were not available previously.  [Unfortunately, while the price is reasonable for me I cannot now make the schedule commitment for travel but will work on Koha from home.]
10:50 ikourmou is there anything that you want to point out? or comment?
10:51 cait any ideas about the day trip yet?
10:51 ikourmou not something particular, justo thoughts:
10:51 cait and a general thank you to everyone involved in organizing! I
10:52 ikourmou we could visit archaeological sites
10:53 ikourmou or go for a day trip to the sea
10:53 ikourmou or a combination of both
10:53 cait :)
10:53 ikourmou we are open to suggestions though
10:53 cait i noticed there was no feedback mail for registration... but i think all is good anyway?
10:53 cait with places filling up i suddenly start to worry a little :)
10:54 ikourmou yes, we plan to do this:
10:54 ikourmou by the end of next week we will send a mail to everyone registered...
10:54 ikourmou with info about the program...
10:55 ikourmou and asking people who will not be able to make it to Thessaloniki to let us know
10:55 cait sounds good
10:55 ikourmou It's gonna be a week before deadline
10:56 cait #info an info email about the schedule will be send to people registered, also asking to let the organizers know if attending is not possible
10:56 ikourmou that's all from me :-)
10:56 cait thx ikourmou - great update
10:56 cait any more questions?
10:56 drojf no. but excited to go :)
10:57 LibraryClaire looking forward to it :)
10:57 cait yeah me too :)
10:57 cait ok, moving on?
10:57 drojf +1
10:58 cait #topic KohaCon17
10:58 Topic for #koha is now KohaCon17 (Meeting topic: General IRC meeting 6 April 2016)
10:58 cait current proposals can be found here:
10:58 cait #link https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]haCon17_Proposals
10:58 cait currently there are 2 entries
10:58 MichaelKuhn joined #koha
10:59 cait oen from the philippines and one from ireland
10:59 cait is anyone here for the proposals?
11:00 drojf i think we can skip the bids until we fix a voting date?
11:00 drojf as long as there are no new ones
11:00 cait probably
11:01 cait we could also send another reminder as soon as a deadline has beens et
11:01 cait set
11:01 drojf not much going to happen before i guess
11:01 thd Have we decided to exclude a consecutive KohaCon in the same continent?
11:01 cait did we agree on a deadline yet?
11:02 drojf cait: i think we did at least vaguely in some past meeting. but i don't remember what it was
11:02 cait me neither
11:02 cait thd: also a good question
11:03 cait ther eis this page
11:03 cait #link https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]onference_Bidding
11:04 cait hm nothing clear there i think, more suggestion
11:04 cait s
11:04 kidclamp gotta run
11:05 cait i think there was some agreement on not having the same continent for 2 years after the con was there
11:05 thd I remember discussing a rule and maybe voting on the principle.
11:06 cait what we coudl do is
11:06 cait - discuss a wording
11:06 cait - add it to vote on the next meeting
11:06 thd Such a rule would need an exception for a case of no bids available to satisfy the rule in a particular year.
11:06 cait true
11:06 cait but it hink with koh agrowing that could be less and less a problem
11:07 cait i would ike to have 2 places to pick from next vote
11:07 cait at least
11:08 thd I am surprised there are not more bids and more repeat bids previously unsuccessful bidders despite the work involved in hosting.
11:08 cait well i always think it's nicer to have a vote :) but there might be cases where it won't happen
11:08 thd s/previously/from previously/
11:09 cait would someone volunteer to write something up for the next agenda?
11:09 cait or how shoudl we handle this?
11:10 thd I will try to form a coherent statement for the agenda.
11:10 cait thx htd
11:10 cait #action thd to add a coherent statement for the next agenda with the option to have the vote then on 'content rotation'
11:10 cait moving on?
11:10 cait is there someone around from the international fund?
11:11 drojf hey
11:11 cait hm?
11:11 drojf i wanted to give people a small homework
11:11 drojf regarding voting options
11:11 drojf or that will never be started
11:11 cait ok
11:12 drojf there are four basic options that i tried to outline in the wiki, based on our disussion at the last vote. it would be good to move this forward slowly without using much meeting time today. so…
11:12 drojf i propose everyone _reads_ in the wiki (link following) about the four options until next meeting and we _decide_ if we want to have seperate "maybe" and "no" options next time. that still leaves room to add more elaborated voting options if anyone feels like it, but we slowly start working on it. does that make sense?
11:12 thd A discussion on the mailing list has not happened yet.
11:13 drojf then reading that is a good start i guess?
11:13 thd I may not start that discussion but I will try to find it if someone else starts the discussion.
11:13 davidnind they look like good starting options to me, to get the ball rolling
11:14 drojf #action everyone: homework: read the four options for counting kohacon votes at https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]ns#Counting_votes
11:14 drojf #action everyone: make up your mind if you want to have the option to choose between "maybe" and "no" (options 2 and 4). discuss on the mailinglist before if you like
11:14 cait i had the action all typed out...
11:14 drojf #info we will write a test about that next time
11:14 cait lol
11:14 drojf i did too
11:14 drojf :P
11:14 cait moving on ok now?
11:14 drojf yep
11:14 thd Evaluation of the relative merits of voting options requires more than merely reading the options.
11:15 cait #topic International Koha Fund - Draft Rules for THT Grants Committee
11:15 Topic for #koha is now International Koha Fund - Draft Rules for THT Grants Committee (Meeting topic: General IRC meeting 6 April 2016)
11:15 thd Some of those options are especially vulnerable to strategic voting.
11:15 drojf thd: anything that has to happen _before_ reading it?
11:15 cait #info scheduled to be discussed today and voted on next meeting
11:15 cait #link
11:15 drojf thd: if no, i would still see this as the starting point, otherwise we will do nothing
11:16 thd drojf++
11:16 cait I actually did my homework there and have some comments - but i can send them as an email if people want to
11:16 drojf nobody around?
11:16 cait doesn't seem like it :(
11:16 drojf i think we were to discuss today and vote next meeting?
11:17 cait yes, what i said above
11:17 drojf i'd like to hear the comments, but we lack a discussion partner taht is involved in the process then
11:17 cait i can be quick
11:17 cait 1e  Any one library, organisation or company (including a Listed Koha  Support Company) may have only one principal, employee or contractor  serve on the Committee at any given time.
11:17 cait i had to look up some of the words, so i hope i understood i all right
11:18 cait in this one i wonder about contractor
11:18 cait because the koha support companies and libraries contract /subcontract...
11:18 cait the definition is not clear to me
11:19 drojf good point
11:19 wahanui I know! The blade went right through that child!
11:19 drojf that should probably be defined in a clear way
11:20 cait in 3a it mentions 'proposals are invited in the current quarter' but the meetings are 'at least 2 times per year' - maybe a mismatch from a change at some point?
11:21 drojf good catch. seems to me like a revision error too
11:21 cait hm and in 3j is a reference to 3h that should be 3i - so that#s more of a typo
11:22 cait i think also an error that came from adding another paragraph in between
11:22 cait so i think the most debatable comment i have is about 'contractor' definition
11:23 cait becuase would that mean a library and it's support company can not have a representative at the same timeß
11:23 drojf this is how i understand it
11:23 cait or if one company uses development from another - woudl that be a contractor etc
11:23 drojf which means a library with several contractors could keep everyone out of it :P
11:23 cait it might be on purpose or a bad pick as a term in the koha context :)
11:23 cait nice trick heh
11:24 cait does anyone want to add something?
11:24 thd Would the conflict of interest rule against lobbying prevent people from advocating outside of deliberations for some reasonable idea?  Would some qualification of what is meant by lobbying be better?
11:24 cait sorry, not sure i udnerstand
11:26 thd If a particular party has an interest in some outcome in which they may have an interest and would be necessarily barred from discussion and voting  ...
11:26 cait is that 3? Whenever a member has a financial or personal interest in any matter  coming before the Committee, the affected person shall a) fully disclose  the nature of the interest and b) withdraw from discussion, lobbying,  and voting on the matter unless a majority of disinterested members vote  that it is in the best interest of the Fund to allow it. The minutes of  meetings at which such votes are taken shall record such disclosures,  abstentions or rational
11:27 cait i think they left an option there with the majority of disinterested members
11:27 thd should the same party also be barred from giving information advocating the merits of the idea.
11:27 thd Yes article 3.
11:27 cait hm there is also 2e:
11:27 cait 2e Any member of the Committee who may receive financial benefit if a  proposal is accepted must recuse themselves from voting on that  proposal.  Furthermore, they may receive no more opportunity to advocate  for that proposal than any other proposer.
11:28 cait maybe there is a slight mismatch there between not receiving more time than others and 'withdraw totally' ?
11:28 thd 2e clarifies.  Thank you cait. ;)
11:29 drojf cait: thd: since nobody is available of the people in charge, would you send the concerns to the list? if we are supposed to vote in may we have to talk about it before. or do we wait for the committee to start a discussion on the list?
11:29 drojf (which i guess won't happen)
11:30 cait #action Koha Fund Fundraising Committee members - review full logs for discussion of the proposed document
11:30 thd Withdraw totally should conflict with 2e.  Maybe that could be explicitly stated to not be the case in 3.
11:30 cait drojf: i can send a link to the discussion here
11:30 drojf excellent idea
11:31 cait @action cait to send a link to the fundraising discussion to the list
11:31 huginn cait: I suck
11:31 cait #action cait to send a link to the fundraising discussion to the list
11:31 cait i'd like to skip the next topic for today
11:31 cait an dmove on to setting a new date
11:31 drojf what is that?
11:31 wahanui i think that is the bueaty of the plugins :)
11:32 drojf the brainstorming?
11:32 cait brainstomring about sign offs
11:32 drojf personally, i doubt that there will ever be much brainstorming about this at the end of a general irc meeting. i propose to either move this to one of the mailing lists or form a group of people that try to come up with ideas outside of the meeting
11:32 drojf my brain is not storming after 1,5 to 2 hours of meeting, how about yours?
11:32 cait will you send an email to the mailing list?
11:33 cait yeah, the meetings tend to get a little too long recently
11:33 drojf the big one or the debv one?
11:33 cait #topic Brainstorming about sign-offs
11:33 Topic for #koha is now Brainstorming about sign-offs (Meeting topic: General IRC meeting 6 April 2016)

11:33 cait #info drojf to send an email to the mailing lists to move discussion there
11:33 drojf i can send an email
11:33 drojf hey i had not volunteered yet :P
11:34 cait #info will be removed from next meeting's agenda, until someone wants to add it back for discussing some concrete ideas
11:34 cait too late

12:36 tcohen morning!
12:36 drojf hola other parts of the world
12:37 * LibraryClaire waves
12:38 tcohen hi LibraryClaire drojf
12:38 tcohen drojf: did u succeed with your LE patches?
12:41 drojf tcohen: moving some stuff to koha-letsencrypt to make it work for new and existing installations and the renewal cronjob is pending. i wrote most of it but have not tested it
12:42 drojf also they announced to move the client to EFF and rename it, i am not sure what to make out of that now
12:42 drojf but they changed the limits to 20 certs per 7 days (from 5), which is pretty good for us
12:46 drojf it better be in the next version of koha or i'll look stupid with my kohacon talk ;)
12:48 tcohen hehe
12:48 tcohen lets test it then!
12:49 cait you know the deadlines - test it!
12:52 talljoy joined #koha
13:00 rocio joined #koha
13:02 drojf what is up on the bugtracker now can be tested now. what is missing is mostly moving stuff around, the functionality will not change drastically
13:04 oleonard Have item search results never shown data in the 'collection' column? I've looked back through 3.18.x.
13:12 mario joined #koha
13:16 oleonard Oh, I'm expecting "collection" to mean ccode, but it looks like it actually means biblioitems.collectiontitle. I have no idea what that is.
13:16 oleonard A UNIMARC thing?
13:16 wahanui a unimarc thing is probably somewhat incomplete from the look of it
13:17 cait oleonard: might be series
13:17 cait but mislabelled then
13:18 tcohen drojf: I'd say my patches enabling the indexer by default are worth
13:20 tcohen bug 16190 and bug 15113
13:20 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=16190 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, tomascohen, Needs Signoff , Enable the indexer daemon by default
13:20 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=15113 normal, P5 - low, ---, tomascohen, Needs Signoff , koha-rebuild-zebra should check USE_INDEXER_DAEMON and skip if enabled
13:20 tcohen let users rejoice Koha's capabilities that remain hidden
13:24 Joubu tcohen: did not you notice an issue with syspref cache when upgrading yesterday or today?
13:25 Joubu I had to restart memcached, I always got the installer
13:25 tcohen Joubu: i didn't
13:25 tcohen i got a couple internal server error pages
13:25 Joubu did you upgrade?:)
13:26 tcohen until i upgraded and restarted plack
13:33 Joubu ha yes, the problem only appears if you execute via the commandline
13:35 tcohen we should exclude KOHA::Version from the cache
13:36 tcohen Joubu: i cannot reproduce the Members.t failure on jenkins
13:36 Joubu tcohen: I don't think it's an issue.
13:36 benjamin tcohen/Joubu: we might have run into caching issues too regarding sysprefs
13:36 Joubu benjamin: on master?
13:37 benjamin on 3.22.05 the sysprefs language and opaclanguage shifted on every page reload... on 3.22.03 they didnt. Haven't tried on master
13:37 MichaelKuhn Hello, in https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]ow_bug.cgi?id=737 I have seen some people worked on the possibility to show the location of a book on a map of the library, but nothing has come out of it so far. Has anyone tried an individual solution?
13:37 huginn Bug 737: enhancement, P2, ---, magnus, NEW , Map of library in search system
13:40 Joubu benjamin: It certainly comes from 11998. Please open a bug report and link it to 11998 if you have steps to reproduce the issue
13:41 geek_cl joined #koha
13:42 benjamin Joubu: I suspected that, yes. I see there are some caching patches waiting for signoff,  should I look into them as well? bug 16105 f.ex? or please tell if there are others pertinent for 3.24
13:42 huginn Bug[…]_bug.cgi?id=16105 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, jonathan.druart, Needs Signoff , Cache::Memory is loaded even if memcache is used
13:43 Joubu benjamin: I'd need more info to know where it could come from (plack or not, memcache or not)
13:44 Joubu and what you meant by "shifted"
13:50 benjamin Joubu: it certainly is 11988, which came in 3.22.5. By "shifted", I mean, with more than two languages, eg. nb-NO and en, every reload of a page shifts the language syspref from one to the other. Interesting feature ;) I will look more into it and see if is
13:50 benjamin ...repeatable
13:52 Joubu that's scary!
13:53 Joubu but really I don't see how it could be possible :)
13:53 Joubu looking forward to see the bug report

14:06 * oleonard balances a stapler on his head
14:07 * tcohen jumps from one desk to the other repeatedkly
14:08 oleonard Did I hear that there was some way to find out if a particular file is affected by pending patches?
14:08 tcohen Joubu: what do u want to pass 14598?
14:08 tcohen splitter
14:08 wahanui splitter is cool
14:08 tcohen oleonard:
14:09 Joubu want to? why would I want to that?
14:09 tcohen damn idiomatic issues
14:09 tcohen what prevents 14598 to be passed QA?
14:10 Joubu see comments 63-65
14:10 Joubu (same as the last 4x you asked me:p)
14:11 tcohen Joubu: :-P
14:11 tcohen 63: ready
14:11 tcohen 64-65: you want it to read the deleted{biblio|items} tables too?
14:12 tcohen what behaviour would you expect it the sysadmin cleaned those tables?
14:12 Joubu It was 2 months ago, I don't remember the question so I won't understand the answer
14:12 tcohen (you mentioned some warnings during upgrade it the items where delented)
14:12 Joubu anyway, answer comment 64&65 and I will have a look again
14:13 Joubu Usually I don't look at bug reports when I asked for something and did not get an answer. It's a general rule
14:13 tcohen boo
14:30 Joubu tcohen: with 14598 and without a global fix for 15599, all our test files will produce lot of warnings
14:30 tcohen 14598 is not tied to 15599 to me
14:31 Joubu 14598 generates the warnings
14:31 tcohen i respect that you think so, but i dont agree, maybe kyle should've just fixed the warnings issue for 14598 only
14:32 tcohen i went beyond that
14:32 tcohen i'll take a look at the global problem you mention, don't worry
14:33 tcohen right now i reproduced your warning during upgrade, and am fixing it
14:34 ccordova joined #koha
14:34 ccordova_ joined #koha
14:34 Joubu iirc the warnings do not appear before 14598, so I don't understand "maybe kyle should've just fixed the warnings issue for 14598 only"
14:35 tcohen i didn't notice the fix introduced problems on the tests, i'm on it right now
14:40 Karl_H joined #koha
14:42 * cait is confused but shares Joubu's rule
14:43 cait well i try to... sometimes i get soft... or fail it to get it out of my queue :P
14:45 tcohen we need to fix the bug, the fact that our tests create bad scenarios and need to be fixed should not block the bugfix
14:45 tcohen i'll try to work on that, though
14:45 tcohen i will just flood your inboxes too :-P
14:47 kidclamp joined #koha
14:51 tcohen Joubu: how can i test the new warnings nightmare?
14:51 tcohen prove t/db_dependent/ ?
14:51 Joubu t/db_dependent/Items/* I guess
14:52 Joubu t/db_dependent/Items* even
14:52 tcohen thanks
14:54 tcohen Joubu: I see
14:55 tcohen those are silent for me, but there are several others
14:55 tcohen the problem is that tests are not correctly coded
14:55 rocio joined #koha
14:56 tcohen and I don't think there can be a global solution

15:28 pianohacker hello hello
15:30 oleonard pianohacker: Re: Your required fields question, HTML5 "required" attribute is the minimum. A JS layer is a good second layer.
15:30 oleonard This are both IMHO, since there's no official rule.
15:31 oleonard pianohacker: I recommend looking at the markup of admin/ for a simple example.
15:32 pianohacker oleonard: okay, makes sense. Thanks. I'll throw together a quick patch to fix the EDI thing if you're not poking at it
15:33 oleonard pianohacker: I submitted a patch yesterday with a bunch of template changes

20:00 cait does this link work? https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]_2016&action=edit
20:01 cait hi kidclamp
20:01 kidclamp hi cait
20:02 cait could you try something for me?
20:02 kidclamp sure
20:03 cait can you try the red link on this page?
20:03 cait i have difficulties adding the page for the next agenda
20:03 kidclamp there is currently no text in thispage
20:04 cait can you add it? there should be en edit link
20:04 cait i can't
20:04 cait keeps timing out :(
20:04 kidclamp yes
20:04 cait weird
20:04 kidclamp can edit
20:04 kidclamp https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]meting_4_May_2016

20:05 kidclamp oh, I edited the talk
20:05 kidclamp can;t get in to main page
20:05 kidclamp you are right, borked
20:05 rangi i can
20:06 kidclamp the wiki knows better than to mess with rangi
20:06 rangi hmm actually that feels like disk space issues
20:06 cait so should ask gmcharlt to take a look?
20:06 rangi yup, i forget who else has shell
20:06 gmcharlt seems advisible
20:06 cait hi gmcharlt :)
20:06 cait i didn't want to summon you if it was just me
20:07 gmcharlt disk space isn't an issue
20:07 cait editing the old agenda worked fine, then it started when wanted to add the new page
20:10 cait gmcharlt: on another note - lots of dicussion on the funds fundraising... proposal in today's meeting
20:19 rangi hmm there goes my theory then
20:19 cait still not working for me - i will wait and write the email
20:19 cait homework from today's meeting
20:21 mario joined #koha
20:28 gmcharlt cait: try again now
20:28 cait onit
20:28 gmcharlt looks like a bug in the SelectCategory extension, which I've disabled for now
20:29 ccordova hi,  i have problem in my koha 3.22.5 this log see :
20:29 cait much better :)
20:29 cait aah
20:29 cait thx a lot for the quick help :)
20:30 gmcharlt yw
20:31 rangi ccordova: is the machine out of memory? id take a look at top
20:33 ccordova rangi :  this is memory
20:33 andreashm joined #koha
20:35 ccordova is very slow for search  18 seg  for search
20:35 * andreashm waves
20:35 cait hi andreashm :)
20:36 rangi ccordova: hmm i'd try (on your test server) enabling plack
20:36 andreashm hi cait
20:36 rangi and make sure caching is switched on
20:36 rangi also
20:36 ccordova not plack is disabled
20:36 rangi yes, i mean try it with plack enabled on your test server, to see if that is faster
20:37 ccordova it's  server in production
20:37 rangi yes
20:38 rangi but you have a test server right?
20:39 ccordova if I've had, but not change, only a couple of seconds less.
20:42 andreashm I know I've asked this a bunch of times, but really - what is the difference between CCODE and LOC? Are they interchangeable or do they affect different parts of the system?
20:43 rangi not interchangebale
20:43 * andreashm is asking because we are having a discussion about which one to use for our locations.
20:43 rangi well they could be, if you mess around with the marc frameworks
20:43 rangi CCODE is collection code
20:44 rangi you can switch to searching by it instead of itemtypes
20:44 rangi i wouldn't use it for location, id use LOC (which is for location :))
20:45 andreashm rangi: yes I know. but there is a library here that is using ccode for locations, and it seems to work fine.
20:45 cait hm not only instead
20:45 cait you can have all three to search on
20:45 andreashm so the difference is maninly searching options?
20:45 rangi just because you can, doesn't mean you should
20:45 rangi :)
20:45 andreashm hehe
20:45 cait andreashm: what speaks against using loc for locations? :)
20:46 cait i'd say the difference is in the display in the item mostly LOC displays below the library - if it's home or holding you can confiugre using prefs. collection has its own column
20:46 cait you can both use for advanced search
20:46 cait one difference i can think of is maybe that you can use collections for branch transfer limits
20:46 andreashm cit: not sure. I'm not there to discuss. but I would guess the look on item (an own column or not)
20:47 andreashm a, home or holdings branch setting affects loc and not ccode?
20:47 cait hm there is a separate one
20:47 cait sec
20:48 cait OpacLocationBranchToDisplayShelving
20:49 cait there is also a cart feature tied to location
20:49 andreashm cait: oh, thanks. we're not using the opac though.
20:49 cait ok
20:49 cait InProcessingToShelvingCart  ReturnToShelvingCart NewItemsDefaultLocation
20:50 andreashm thanks
20:50 cait so maybe branch transfer limits if you use those and the cart feature would make a difference
20:51 andreashm yes, very good to know.
20:51 cait BranchTransferLimitsType
20:56 andreashm anything specific for LOC similarly?
20:56 andreashm that using ccode wouldn't do/affect?
20:57 cait can't think of anything apart from the cart right now
20:57 cait course reserves can change both i think
20:59 andreashm cait: interesting, thanks.
20:59 andreashm seems to me that they are somewhat interchangeable after all, except some minor functionality. =)
21:01 rangi this is true
21:01 rangi but so is pretty much every field in MARC ;)
21:01 rangi i think putting location in the location subfield make sense .. that may be a NZ thing though :)
21:01 andreashm depends what one means with location, I guess.
21:02 andreashm oh, so much ambiguity
21:02 andreashm =)
21:03 rangi yup
21:05 pianohacker we've seen folks use the word location to mean between 4 and 5 different things
21:05 pianohacker occasionally within the same conversation
