madrazrSRabbelier: Hi08:30
SRabbeliermadrazr: hey man08:30
madrazrSRabbelier: You had asked me to implement Edit for selected documents08:30
madrazrSRabbelier: I am just looking at the code, feel it would have been better if Select-ing document worked08:31
SRabbeliermadrazr: it does :)08:31
SRabbeliermadrazr: committed yesterday08:31
madrazrSRabbelier: ouch, OK, haven't svn updated today08:31
SRabbeliermadrazr: anyway, what you could do08:31
SRabbeliermadrazr: is adding help text to the model properties08:32
SRabbeliermadrazr: and example text08:32
madrazrSRabbelier: Oh OK, is that all enough? Edit is not required?08:32
SRabbeliermadrazr: it is, but it can wait :)08:33
madrazrSRabbelier: Oh Ok08:33
madrazrwill first add help text and then start work on Edit thingie :)08:33
SRabbeliermadrazr: cool, :)08:34
MatthewWilkeshi guys, anyone had a chance to look at the commenting patch I submitted?  Would help to know where I'm going wrong08:39
SRabbelierMatthewWilkes: first time I had for melange this week was yesterday evening, and I did Merio's autocompletion patch then08:39
SRabbelierMatthewWilkes: but perhaps I can look into it today :)08:40
madrazrSRabbelier: this is simply awesome, but I felt "the Select" button would not have hurt08:40
madrazrisn't there a use case where person doesn't remember the title/link id of the document at all?08:41
SRabbeliermadrazr: they can look it up with 'list document' in that case I guess :)08:41
madrazrSRabbelier: that affects usability, extra work :)08:42
MatthewWilkesSRabbelier: hehe, I don't mean to push, I'm just afraid of going down a rabbit hole and wasting time08:42
madrazranyways depends on what others suggest, sorry if I have suggested wrongly :)08:43
SRabbeliermadrazr: well, the way it was didn't work either, since it discarded yoru changes08:44
madrazrSRabbelier: Oh Ok08:44
madrazrSRabbelier: should the help text be added for each type of FORM that can be created and uses Document Link ID?09:01
madrazror is there some generic way of doing this for Document Link ID field?09:01
SRabbeliermadrazr: no I mean09:02
SRabbeliermadrazr: just regular help_text09:02
SRabbeliermadrazr: look at the modules in /soc/models09:02
SRabbeliermadrazr: some of them have help_text defined, some don't09:02
madrazrSRabbelier: Ok looking09:02
madrazrSRabbelier: Ok09:02

*** penyaskito_ has joined #melange09:40
madrazrSRabbelier: if we take the example of tos_link_id for which help_text and example_text should be added, it is one of the extra_dynafields, so should I add help_text and example_text in its view rather than model?09:41
SRabbeliermadrazr: no, just add it in the model, if the view doesn't use it you can look into adding it in the view as well, that is, by pointing at the model09:42

madrazrSRabbelier: there are some fields that are not defined in the views at all, for example tos_link_id, home_link_id, which are created as new_param['create_extra_dynafields'] in the views, what can I do to them?13:00
madrazris it still possible to add help_text and example_text to them in model by any chance?13:01
*** penyaskito_ has quit IRC13:04
SRabbeliermadrazr: yes, of course you can13:34
SRabbeliermadrazr: you can always add the text13:34
SRabbeliermadrazr: if you can't get it to show up in the view that's ok13:34
madrazrSRabbelier: if it doesn't show up in the view then whats the use?13:35
SRabbeliermadrazr: we will make it show up ;)13:35
SRabbeliermadrazr: but you don't have to worry about that13:35
madrazrSRabbelier: ah Ok, he he13:35
madrazrSRabbelier: what should the example_text should like, any suggestion?13:42
madrazrsay for ToS Link ID13:42
*** MatthewWilkes has quit IRC13:42
SRabbeliermadrazr: it should give an example or a link_id I guess?13:43
*** Merio has joined #melange14:02
madrazrSRabbelier: Ok14:04
madrazrSRabbelier: I have put example_text and help_text for just 2 types of fields, Home page link id and ToS link id, I will send in the patch, if you are satisfied with the work I will go ahead14:11
madrazror else please tell me where I should change things14:12
SRabbeliermadrazr: ok, go for it :)14:12
madrazrSRabbelier: sent :)14:17
SRabbeliermadrazr: ok14:17
*** madrazr has left #melange14:18
*** madrazr has joined #melange14:19
madrazrSRabbelier: leaving for the day, will get some sleep, catch you tomorrow. See you14:19
SRabbeliermadrazr: ok man! g'night :)14:20
SRabbeliermadrazr: thanks for the work14:20
madrazrSRabbelier: NP, thanks for all the suggestions14:20
*** madrazr has left #melange14:20
MerioSRabbelier: what about the autocompletion patch? Need we to work a bit together to let it work everywhere in Melange?14:48
SRabbelierMerio: nope, your part is done I think14:48
SRabbelierMerio: at least for now :)14:48
SRabbelierMerio: it's working perfectly14:48
MerioSRabbelier: great! :) Let me know if I can be useful for something else :)14:49
SRabbelierMerio: there will no doubt be something soon :)14:56
MerioSRabbelier: ok, I'll be glad :)14:58
SRabbelierMerio: if you want to get more familiar with the codebase you could look into writing some cleaner methods14:59
SRabbelierMerio: for example, atm you can fill in bogus for phone number14:59
MerioSRabbelier: do we need some sort of regexp checking?15:00
SRabbelierMerio: mhhh, you could do that, sure :)15:00
SRabbelierMerio: you could add a general regexp cleanear15:00
MerioSRabbelier: otherwise what were you thinking about?15:00
SRabbelierMerio: and than instantiate a specific one for phone number15:00
MerioSRabbelier: I don't know if there is something similar as a JQuery plugin, but in DojoToolkit you can add a sort of validation in forms against regexps and do anything (for example change the field class to let its background be red or something) in valid/invalid situations15:02
MerioSRabbelier: and then we can double check in Python if needed15:02
SRabbelierMerio: we want to do the check in python15:02
SRabbelierMerio: if the check fails in python, Django will inform the user15:02
MerioSRabbelier: that's better anyway (the check in python obviously)15:03
SRabbelierMerio: :)15:04
MerioSRabbelier: the JS would be just for more immediate interaction, however first the check in python ;)15:04
SRabbelierMerio: jup, :)15:04
SRabbelierMerio: you can have a look at teh other cleaners in cleaning.py15:04
SRabbelierMerio: feel free to ask though :)15:04
MerioSRabbelier: ok I'm going to look right now (half an hour spare time ;))15:05
SRabbelierMerio: cooL!15:05
MerioSRabbelier: I think I should add something also in, is it correct?. Is there any other checking needed beside phone numbers? So once I put my hands on the code I can do other checks as well. :)15:23
SRabbelierMerio: yup, you should probably put the actual validation code in validate :)15:23
SRabbelierMerio: I'm sure there is some, I'd say go through the app and see if you can input bogus anywhere? :P15:24
MerioSRabbelier: ehehehe, seems sensible :P15:24
SRabbelierMerio: good :)15:24
MerioSRabbelier: now I've to go away, keeping you updated :) Thanks for your help and guidance as always :) See you :)15:26
SRabbelierMerio: ok, cheers!15:27
SRabbelierMerio: keeip up the good work man!15:27
MerioSRabbelier: I will! :) Cheers! :)15:27

tlarsenSRabbelier: If Google Code offered hg support for a DVCS before git, would you use hg, or would you stay with svn?15:53
tlarsen(hypothetical question to see if you are more of a DVCS fan or more of a git fan)15:54
durin42tlarsen: this is becoming moot, a coworker and I are starting to make git and hg interop sanely15:56
tlarsendurin42: Fine.  Rain on my flame-war starter.  :)15:57
durin42tlarsen: next time, try flamewar thermite?15:58
tlarsendurin42: or flame-war white phosphorus15:58
SRabbelierdurin42: you should talk with Johannes Schindelin if you try that16:18
SRabbelierdurin42: he's been working with some Dutch Hg guy on fast-import/export for Hg16:18
SRabbeliertlarsen: but anyway, I'd go for Hg for sure16:19
SRabbeliertlarsen: anything not svn really ;)16:19
durin42SRabbelier: You mean with Dirkjan?16:19
SRabbelierdurin42: possibly, yes16:20
SRabbelierdurin42: was he at the mentor summit?16:20
durin42SRabbelier: I've got a working clone function already. Trying it on git.git now.16:20
durin42SRabbelier: yeah16:20
SRabbelierdurin42: then yes, him16:20
SRabbelierdurin42: I still think Dscho would be interested to hear more of the effort ;)16:20
durin42SRabbelier: there's been some recent discussion of bolting on a backend to hg that would read git packs natively16:21
SRabbelierdurin42: I reckon you could use someone from the git team?16:21
durin42SRabbelier: if we go that route, right now I'm working to get basic workingness16:21
durin42a coworker figured out a way to have commits owrk16:21
SRabbelierdurin42: ok :)16:21
SRabbelierdurin42: good luck16:22
SRabbelierdurin42: keep me posted :)16:22
durin42without having to do some of the voodoo that git-svn and hgsubversion do16:22
durin42SRabbelier: that coworker is working on git-hg :)16:22
SRabbelierdurin42: what's his na,e?16:22
durin42Cosmin Stejerean16:22
durin42our goal is basically to unify the world around one set of mutually interop'ing DVCS tools16:23
