18:42 aubreyja Hi -
19:50 mgage aubreyja: hi -- had a student -- what's up
19:51 aubreyja Hi - merged the recent pull request - what's supposed to happen with the new pg?
19:54 mgage Not many changes in the pg -- I think.  My main goal was to get check_level_curves to work again -- it's been sitting around in the bug list for way too long.  After several false starts it turned out to be simple -- you need to change $useOldMacros to $main::useOldMacros in PGfunctionevaluators and PGnumericalevaluators.  In the process I revamped some of the error message transmission.  WARN_MESSAGE and DEBUG_MESSAGE but you won't ordinarily see
19:54 mgage with that unless there are errors.
19:55 mgage I'm still not completely done with that -- it's possible to have a problem crash while rendering in such a way that the errors up to the crash aren't reported out.  I have an idea that might help with that.
19:56 aubreyja what about: "here is a new pg repository as well. See if you can fetch that without an explicit pull request."
19:56 aubreyja do you mean just merge from the web interface?
19:56 mgage The check_level_curves purposely did not use MathObjects evaluators at the time and I thought it was going to have to be completely rewritten to use them -- but there was a quick hack that makes it work again for now.  Rewriting that evaluator completely with MathObjects in mind is still  a good idea.
19:57 mgage I just mean that I updated some files in pg as I described above.  -- can you look at my repository, tell what I've changed and fetch it to git on your machine?  -- or do I have to send you a message telling you what to fetch?
19:58 aubreyja I can do that If I add you as a remote I think - just a sec
19:59 mgage it may be you have to do that -- I haven't dealt with the receiving end of a pull request yet -- so I'm only vaguely aware of how that is handled.
20:19 aubreyja sorry - student stopped by - yes, added you as a remote, then
20:19 aubreyja git pull mgage master
20:19 aubreyja then git push
20:19 aubreyja I don't really get the differences between git fetch and git pull yet..
20:20 mgage ok -- if you get a pull request that allows you to pull directly from my repository into yours?  or do you still go the route through your desktop?
20:20 mgage git pull is effectively,    git fetch and git merge in one operation.
20:20 mgage brb
20:20 aubreyja as long as there are no conflicts, I can pull directly from your repo to mine in github without going through the desktop
20:20 aubreyja ah
20:21 aubreyja but if there is a conflict, then it has to go through my local machine
20:23 mgage ok -- I see -- do you know if there is a way to do this if you weren't sent a pull request?  I haven't seen a button for that yet.
20:24 mgage by the way I have discovered that I can only send a pull request to someone who has  a repository with a common ancester to mine.
20:24 mgage brb
20:26 aubreyja I don't know if there is a way to do it from the web interface
