16:09 dogi lol
16:09 are there some topics to add?
16:10 jelkner, replaceafill ? ready?
16:10 #topic schooltool and sugar
16:10 #info schooltool is a tool for school administration
16:10 #link http://schooltool.sugarlabs.org
16:10 #info started including sugar and treehouse event into
16:10 #link http://schooltool.sugarlabs.org:60021/calendar
16:10 replaceafill sure
16:12 dogi replaceafill created a nice sugar skin for this schooltool
16:12 _bernie indeed
16:12 the planet is also crying for a new skin
16:12 dogi which hopefully will work soon for showing there all meeting events
16:12 _bernie #link http://planet.sugarlabs.org/
16:13 dogi _bernie, should i add a topic for this :)
16:14 this would be the first step in using schooltool for sugar ...
16:15 next step i would wish to have online teachings about how to create sugar activities there ... :P
16:15 replaceafill that's the part i don't quite understand
16:15 schooltool doesn't allow you to manage course content :(
16:15 dogi, i guess that's what you want, right?
16:16 dogi right now i am speaking only about showing events ... or in other let s start with the calender feature
16:17 other possible integrations could be
16:17 automatic success report for solved activities ...
16:18 so that teachers would know the state of there scholars
16:18 ... this is only an idea ...
16:19 jelkner, which was the grant page for schooltool features
16:19 replaceafill that schooltool can do :)
16:19 dogi could a sugarlabs programmer apply to this?
16:20 integration of sugar activities and schooltool?
16:20 replaceafill, good to know :)
16:20 lfaraone_ waves.
16:21 dogi #link http://book.schooltool.org/htm[…]lp/grant-rfp.html
16:21 replaceafill, hope this is the link to apply?
16:22 replaceafill dogi, i guess the winners were already announced
16:22 dogi hi lfaraone
16:22 replaceafill https://launchpad.net/schoolto[…]announcement/5710
16:22 dogi hmm then for future development :P
16:22 replaceafill :)
16:23 dogi so the last one is yours to manage? ... congrats :)
16:23 replaceafill yes, our pilot here in El Salvador :)
16:23 dogi cool good to know :)
16:24 replaceafill dogi, btw
16:24 dogi yes
16:24 replaceafill could it be possible to install ubuntu 10.04 in our VM?
16:24 that's what the pilot will need
16:25 i mean, schooltool runs on ubuntu 9.10 (as it is right now)
16:25 _bernie replaceafill: we need to do some homework first
16:25 replaceafill but the focus for our development will be ubuntu 10.04
16:25 dogi do you want a fresh install
16:25 _bernie dogi: shall I work on a lucid template?
16:25 replaceafill dogi, sure, i have backups of what we currently have there
16:25 _bernie dogi: distupgrade should be safe enough
16:25 replaceafill _bernie, ah!
16:26 upgrade 9.10 to 10.04!
16:26 dogi since it is a VM we can take a copy and then go for it ...
16:26 replaceafill i can go with upgrading myself if that's ok
16:26 using distupgrade as _bernie said
16:27 doesn't use dist-upgrade that much, so he completely forgot about it :P
16:27 dogi replaceafill, btw since you are using a VM on treehouse it would be fine see you more often here ... (autojoin) ... :)
16:28 replaceafill yes, i have to configure my xchat correctly
16:28 dogi #action dogi copy schooltool vm
16:28 replaceafill btw, i'm also learning about openid, i dont want to make promises, but it would be nice for schooltool to handle openid auth as someone suggested two weeks ago
16:29 dogi #action replaceafill update schooltool vm to lucid
16:29 replaceafill, +1 for openid
16:30 replaceafill, will tell u then when i shutdown the vm for copying ..
16:30 replaceafill dogi, ok thanks
16:30 dogi is somewhere at night ok?
16:30 replaceafill ok
16:31 dogi btw will you fix the skin for sugar and the calender?
16:31 replaceafill yes, put me a task for next week meeting :)
16:31 i'll work on that this week
16:31 _bernie replaceafill: +1 on this plan. if it fails horribly we can always reinstall from scratch
16:31 replaceafill fixing the skin styles
16:31 _bernie, :)
16:31 dogi #action replaceafill fix sugar skin for schooltool calendar
16:31 _bernie replaceafill: but ubuntu and debian upgrades are always quite smooth
16:32 dogi +1 _bernie
