07:06 ashimema dcook++ #bugzilla cleansing
07:13 Joubu dcook: "Closing this due to age" - this is not a valid reason imo
07:16 ashimema The config split one I thought might be nice to get done still
07:17 ashimema But I also don't know whose going to commit to doing it any time
07:28 reiveune joined #koha
07:28 reiveune hello
07:45 Joubu ashimema: I didn't see this one, what's the number?
07:48 ashimema [Bug 26790] Refactor Koha configuration (koha-conf.xml)
07:48 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=26790 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, koha-bugs, RESOLVED WISHLIST, Refactor Koha configuration (koha-conf.xml)
07:49 ashimema Most of the other ones I saw him close were duplicates or no longer relevant because other things had moved on and replaced the need
07:50 ashimema But I'd still love to see config split up and XML::Simple killed off once and for all
07:54 Joubu yes, I would not close reports because they are "too old"
07:55 ashimema I don't like the 'WISHLIST' status.. I hadn't realised that was even a thing
07:55 ashimema it encourages closing
07:55 ashimema as you highlight

08:25 ashimema Morning cait
08:58 cait morning ashimema :)
09:49 paulderscheid[m] Morning #koha
09:51 paulderscheid[m] Quick question: How would I setup includes within a plugin?
09:58 cait hi paulderscheid[m] - sadly I don't know but I seem to remember people talking about it
09:59 paulderscheid[m] It's apparently not that trivial and I can also get around it but would be very helpful to know.
10:03 cait maybe soem of the more elaborate plugins have itß
10:03 cait ?
10:37 tcohen hola #koha o/
10:44 paulderscheid[m] Good thinking cait. I'll look at some other plugins.

11:20 huginn tcohen: Quote #253: "<drojf> buy humble bundle, sign off on koha patches instead of playing. leisure time, i'm doing it right." (added by wizzyrea at 10:15 PM, May 28, 2013)
11:22 paulderscheid[m] Load and clear tcohen
11:22 paulderscheid[m] Loud, not Load ^^
11:23 tcohen thanks paulderscheid[m]
11:24 tcohen irssi is working *funny*
11:25 paulderscheid[m] Always advocating for element. But I understand the comfort of not leaving the terminal. :D
11:29 tcohen will keep it in mind
11:32 tcohen Joubu: around?
11:33 tcohen Koha/ vs Koha/
11:33 tcohen job_type vs. type
11:38 Joubu tcohen: ?
11:38 Joubu it's 'type' in db
11:39 Joubu what's the context? patches or master?
11:40 ashimema anyone else here use github
11:40 ashimema I can't seem to push to any of my repo's at the moment.. though github claims to be up and running
11:40 Joubu protected branches?
11:40 ashimema nope
11:40 ashimema branch new branch
11:41 ashimema though existing branches are also affect
11:41 ashimema any kind of push fails without any useful errors.
11:41 ashimema error: failed to push some refs to is all i'm getting.. even with verbose
11:43 Joubu just pushed that -
11:43 Joubu works for me
11:44 ashimema damn, ok
11:44 ashimema so it's local to me
11:46 Joubu did you git pull?
11:46 ashimema I've pulled, I've rebased, I've fetched
11:46 ashimema nothing helps
11:46 Joubu silly question but sometimes we miss the obvious :)
11:46 ashimema indeed
11:46 ashimema it's really odd
11:47 ashimema feels permissions related but I'd expect a different error

12:31 paulderscheid[m] Nevermind khall. I finally understood the docs of Koha::Plugins::Base ^^
12:52 magnuse joined #koha
12:56 magnuse oleonard: we got an email from github's "Dependabot" about a vulnerability in something called "minimatch", which was added to package.json in bug 23025. am i right in thinking that is something that is used more to "build" a koha release, and not something that is exposed in a regular koha install?
12:56 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=23025 major, P5 - low, ---, oleonard, CLOSED FIXED, security vulnerability detected in fstream < 1.0.12 defined in yarn.lock
12:57 oleonard Yes, it's a dependency of one of the gulp tasks which are used to build CSS or translations
12:58 magnuse oleonard: awesome, thanks!
13:36 ashimema have we thought about moving from node-sass to sass (formerly known as dart-sass) oleonard?
13:52 caroline joined #koha
14:01 oleonard ashimema: I don't know about that
14:03 ashimema okies
14:03 ashimema man I'm having some serious git woes today..
14:03 ashimema can't get my darn repo to push to anything now
14:03 tcohen long live to CVS
14:03 ashimema I've been fighting with it all day

14:37 tcohen next meeting?
14:37 wahanui hmmm... next meeting is https://wiki.koha-community.or[…]Next_IRC_meetings
14:40 cait hm we shoudl have general irc today
14:40 ashimema yup
14:41 cait like 40 minutes ago
14:41 cait tuxayo: ?
14:41 ashimema the meeting csripts is stuffed and I have no easy way to fix it..
14:41 cait what's the isuse, the new wiki version?
14:41 ashimema we depend on a cli google cal integration which won't work with googles newer auth requirements
14:41 cait i think adding the calendar entry manually would beok... but it shudl really do the wiki parts
14:42 cait adding the meeting log links is kinda painful manually
14:42 cait well... ideally calendar should wrk too
14:48 tcohen the wiki says December 7
14:48 tcohen today is tuesday 6th
14:56 marcelr sharp
14:57 Oak joined #koha
14:58 tcohen cait: does the koha-meetings script fail to add the minutes if the calendar step fails?
15:02 lukeg joined #koha
15:03 cait tcohen: it seemed so last time, yes
15:03 cait tcohen: I think ashimema said that it happened after the calendar part
15:04 cait tcohen: you are right, meeting is tomorrow - phew
15:04 ashimema the calendar stuff explodes badly and screws the rest of the script
15:05 ashimema I've not had time to just rip it out yet
15:06 tcohen I can take a look later today
15:19 davidnind for me it used to run OK until the calendar part as I never figured out how to  setup the Google part - it would update the minutes then create the page for the next meeting
15:20 davidnind however, I think for the last few meetings I've tried it hasn't worked updating and creating the Wiki pages

17:01 cait left #koha
19:04 paulderscheid[m] Hi sahan

22:50 dcook @later tell Joubu In the past, I wasn't a fan of closing issues that are "too old", but I do think it's practical. The issues aren't deleted, so they can be re-opened, but if no one is going to work on it and it's not a major/critical bug, I think it helps for overall project maintenance to close them.
22:50 huginn dcook: The operation succeeded.
22:51 cait[m] not sure what you are referring to - but I think there is a lot of real bugs we shoudl fix in the old bugs
22:51 cait[m] and some have come more in reach over time
22:52 cait[m] every release has some of those 4 digit ones and it's great to see those old ones go
22:52 cait[m] I would not be i nfavor of auto-closing without intellectual review
22:55 dcook cait[m] Agreed about not auto-closing
22:55 dcook As you say, some of the really old ones are still valid
22:55 cait[m] ok :)
22:56 dcook I mean more so really old enhancement requests or old bugs that are very minor
22:56 dcook I closed a whole bunch of mine from years ago that I'm never going to work on again
22:57 cait[m] i think people can do that with their own bugs anytime - but for others I'd be careful. We don't want to discourage bug reporting and an idea might be picked up again
22:57 dcook In some cases, I figure if a bug was reported 10 years ago but hasn't been commented on again/duplicated in 10 years, it's not a big problem
22:57 dcook Yeah, I found some pretty cool stuff yesterday from the past
22:58 dcook I liked this one on creating user-defined "pipelines"
22:58 dcook The idea being that you scan an item and it runs through a series of actions
22:58 dcook Rather than clicking around Koha and re-scanning and such a bunch of times
22:58 cait[m] do you have an exampe for the types of actions?
22:59 dcook Christopher Brannon raised it. I'll pull up the report as he had some examples
22:59 dcook bug 11852
22:59 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=11852 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, koha-bugs, NEW , Allow staff to create pipelines of actions for items
22:59 dcook "the script puts the "Not picked up" message in the patron account, cancels the existing hold for that patron, and checks the item in to trigger the next hold or transfer on that item"
22:59 dcook Although that last one is a bit trickier..
23:01 dcook For bugs with a status of: "UNCONFIRMED, NEW, REOPENED, ASSIGNED, In Discussion, Patch doesn't apply" I did a sort on "Changed"
23:01 dcook The oldest one was from 2010-09-01. I was really tempted to fix it so that the oldest would be after I started working on Koha.. heh
23:01 cait[m] see? :)
23:01 dcook See what? haha
23:01 cait[m] they have a purpose heh :)
23:02 dcook I mean... that one is arguable haha
23:02 dcook I think I'd mostly want to fix it out of fondness for jcamins
23:02 cait[m] I was temped to start with the bugs assigned to some very old versions
23:02 cait[m] there is one 3.1 and several 3.2
23:02 dcook Oh that would be interesting
23:02 dcook As I was going through them, I thought it would be interesting to test the validity for all the old ones
23:03 dcook But then there's stuff like bug 9524
23:03 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]w_bug.cgi?id=9524 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, gmcharlt, NEW , Let patrons create search groups
23:03 cait[m] there is certainly some areas that could be intersting to test
23:03 cait[m] like we did a lot of work on branchtransfers/transfers
23:03 cait[m] so all old bugs there could be interesting to retest
23:03 dcook Mmm for sure
23:04 cait[m] i could see that people want that for custom search filters...
23:04 cait[m] new 22.11 feature
23:05 dcook The name did make me think of Nick's feature yeah
23:05 cait[m] it would be more flexible and allow you to do that this here wants
23:07 dcook I haven't looked at the feature yet
23:07 cait[m] It's nice :)
23:08 cait[m] also a low bug number actually bug 17170
23:08 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]_bug.cgi?id=17170 new feature, P5 - low, ---, nick, RESOLVED FIXED, Add the ability to create 'saved searches' for use as filters when searching the catalog
23:09 dcook I was thinking about bug numbers the other day
23:10 dcook 17170 is only from late 2016. I suppose that's over 6 years ago but it doesn't feel that long ago... hehe
23:10 cait[m] yeah, some of my first bugs were 4 digit still I think
23:10 cait[m] there has also been more activity I guess
23:10 dcook If 4480 was in 2010, it suggest to me that we've had a huge influx of bug reports over the last 5 years or so
23:11 dcook My first one was bug 7618
23:11 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]w_bug.cgi?id=7618 minor, P5 - low, ---, dcook, CLOSED FIXED, HTML special characters break result table and incorrectly show SQL in Run This Report
23:12 dcook Yikes... I can't read my comments haha
23:12 cait[m] how did you find it?
23:13 dcook The bug?
23:13 wahanui the bug is that perl code is not activ since its not in PER5LIB
23:13 dcook I looked for my name in the git log hehe
23:13 cait[m] aah
23:13 cait[m] i know what my first patch was
23:13 cait[m] actually quite a big thing - I made sure all the patron addresses had the same fields
23:13 dcook Was that 3464?
23:13 dcook We're old... heh
23:14 cait[m] hey! :) but yes, I guess...
23:14 dcook Or at least we've been doing this a long time
23:15 cait[m] bug 3464
23:15 huginn Bug https://bugs.koha-community.or[…]w_bug.cgi?id=3464 enhancement, P5 - low, ---, gmcharlt, CLOSED FIXED, borrowers table should contain country information for libraries with international patron populations
23:16 cait[m] this was pre bugzilla migration... so no attached patches. We were still mailing them
23:16 dcook Those were the days, eh
23:17 cait[m] I odn't exactly miss patch-format...
23:17 dcook I think git bz was just starting to take off when I started. Still emailed back then as well a bit.
23:17 dcook git bz was such a game changer
23:17 cait[m] it was
