Yesterday we had another Koha Project Day. Below is a summary
of the goings on. We're thinking of moving the day of the week
we do this on to give more folks the opportunity to get involved ...
is there a day of the week that would work best for you and your
koha project team? Let us know.
We met some new folks, so extending a welcome to martinmorris,
who's working on configuring Koha; and thanks to jaron for
some support help on that front.
Dewey was up to his usual tricks, and we fed him multitudinous
Slef worked on improvements to the installation process,
thanks for the commits!
Tina and I picked up some books on interface design and started
learning about typical processes for designing application interfaces
(not just websites), with the intent to improve the 3.0 interfaces
before the release.
I also installed plone and played around with some workflows
for managing users, groups, and roles. We discovered that, like Koha,
plone is quite powerful, but requires plenty of customization :-)
Chris spent most of the day fixing bugs in HEAD and commiting fixes
to the CSS for Russ. Chris and I also spent some time refining our
plan for moving to Git.
Russ played around with plone, learned up on the plone help center
product, moving some content into a plone install to see how it
might work (see http://new.koha.org:8080/koha/author/rwgarlick for
some of he content created. The Plone Help Center product looks like the
goods for Koha documentation, but there are still some kinks to iron
out before we have it going properly.
Russ also did some testing of HEAD (version 3), in particular fixed a
bug with the san-op.css which was obscuring the secondary navigation.
Reported a few other bugs that Chris is working on.
Ryan and Mason were super busy getting ready for a golive that happened
this morning, so they opted out this time. I'm sure they'd rather be
working on project stuff, just don't tell the clients :-).
Sara spent some time updating lists of koha users found in the wild
(they're everywhere! :-)). The best lists now are libwebcats and
the Koha wiki, but we're working on a new worldmap that we hope will
launch within the next coupla months.
Feel free to join us next week, the festivities will start at 12:00pm
EST and continue for about 12 hours. To join us, you'll need to
download an IRC client (for Windows, mIRC is pretty good: www.mirc.com/)
and point it at irc.katipo.co.nz and the channel #koha.
