replaceafilljelkner, pong12:33
jelknerwhen would be a good time to talk about events12:33
replaceafilljelkner, 15 mins?12:34
jelkneri have several to add to the ora website12:34
replaceafilljelkner, do you want to learn how to do it?12:34
jelknercool, never mind then12:35
jelknerwill sign in be supported?12:35
replaceafilljelkner, no12:35
jelknerso we need that12:35
replaceafilljelkner, we have no docs for doing that yet12:35
jelkneris it better to add the events first, and have you fix them later12:35
jelkneror wait for you to be ready12:36
replaceafilljelkner, yep12:36
jelknerok, i'll add them12:36
replaceafilljelkner, cool12:36
replaceafilljelkner, seems like sign in will need to change anyway12:37
replaceafilljelkner, to support "grace" periods12:37
jelkner24 hours after event ends12:39
jelknerwith possible configuration of the interval later12:39
replaceafilljelkner, oh my12:39
replaceafilljelkner, i'm not sure we're going to have that ready for monday12:39
jelkneryou don't need that by monday12:39
replaceafilljelkner, cool12:39
replaceafilljelkner, never mind then :)12:39
jelknerbut susan wants it by next general meeting12:40
jelknershe doesn't have a smart phone12:40
jelknerand wants to mark herself present12:40
jelknerso she will do that from home afterwards12:40
replaceafilljelkner, maybe we should allow admins to do that too12:40
jelknerwe agreed last night that 24 hours is reasonable12:40
replaceafilljelkner, ok12:41
jelknerwe can't keep piling work on admins12:41
jelknerit won't happen12:41
jelknerusers need to use the system to manage the data12:41
jelknerthat's the point12:41
replaceafilljelkner, damn admins!12:41
replaceafilljelkner, too lazy12:41
replaceafilljelkner, i understand12:41
jelknernot just lazy man, but incompetent!12:41
replaceafilljelkner, my fear is how much we're "tweaking" tendenci12:41
jelknerthat's the business we are in12:42
jelknerbut i hear you12:42
jelknerit could cost us big time if we can't get stuff pushed upstream12:42
jelknera classic problem in free software development12:42
jelkneri hear you loud and clear12:43
replaceafilljelkner, or if we start changing the base models we're going to suffer when upgrading to newer versions12:43
jelkneryes, i understand12:43
jelknerso we need to try to develop tools that are powerful enough that the tendenci itself will want to include them12:43
jelknerthus pushing them upstream12:44
replaceafilljelkner, right12:44
jelknerin the mean time, we want to develop core features that all our customers want and use12:44
jelknerso that instead of a lot of little tweaks12:44
jelknerwe have a few big ones12:44
jelkneri get the problem12:45
jelknergood luck finding a solution! :-(12:45
jelknerreplaceafill, how do i know if an event is "priority"?12:46
jelknerand type only has "Weekly Meetings" and "Monthly Meetings"12:47
replaceafilljelkner, if i remember correctly it was a presentation attribute the old themes used to have12:47
jelknera lot of things are neither of those12:47
replaceafilljelkner, yes... that's what we were discussing yesterday12:47
jelknerdo i check it or not?12:47
replaceafilljelkner, we need just a "attendable event"12:47
replaceafilljelkner, you can leave it as it is and i'll edit it12:48
replaceafilljelkner, you're transfering the load of lazy incompetent admins to the lazy incompetent developer of yours :D12:48
replaceafilljelkner, i'm done in case you want to talk12:56
jelkneri just responded to the education committe meeting12:57
jelkneri'm such a screw-up!12:58
jelknerhow can i undo that, replaceafill?12:58
replaceafilljelkner, undo what?12:58
jelknerthe rsvp12:58
jelknerand why isn't it on the calendar?12:58
replaceafilljelkner, i'm not on top of the ORA data anymore12:59
jelknerahh, needs to be priority12:59
replaceafilljelkner, can you share the link of what you're seeing?12:59
jelknernever mind13:01
jelkneri added it to the wrong month!13:01
replaceafilljelkner, i figured :D13:02
jelknerlike i've often said to you, replaceafill, nothing is fool proof, because fools are so ingenious13:02
jelknerso i make a great tester13:02
jelknersince i'm such a fool13:03
replaceafilljelkner, user testing question13:05
replaceafilljelkner, how many of those options did you customize?13:05
jelkneri'm confused13:06
jelknerwe don't charge for events in ora13:06
replaceafilljelkner, i know13:07
replaceafilljelkner, i created this other doc for setting RSVP
replaceafilljelkner, see step 5.13:08
replaceafilljelkner, i know those docs suck13:09
jelkneri can live with that13:09
jelknerbut let me fill in the events now13:09
jelknerbefore i get distracted13:09
replaceafilljelkner, ok13:09
replaceafilljelkner, i'll go back to work13:09
