17:20 aubreyja hi
17:20 mgage_ hi
17:20 aubreyja sorry I haven't been around - there's an annual documentary film festival in columbia this weekend, and I've been going to a lot of movies
17:21 aubreyja I've got another one to leave for in half an hour
17:21 mgage_ ooooo  -- sounds like fun.  not that much has been happening
17:21 mgage_ I'm about to write up a point set topology take home exam -- it may take a while.
17:22 aubreyja yeah, I've seen some really great ones, and the directors and people in the films are here to take questions from the audience afterwords
17:22 mgage_ I think the next thing on the agenda is to practice porting the github repository back to svn but that can wait for a while.
17:22 aubreyja last night morgan spurlock (supersize me) was at a screening of "Comic Con IV: A fan's hope"
17:22 aubreyja that's what I was going to ask about
17:23 mgage_ that's really fun -- gives you a whole new idea of how to look at films
17:24 mgage_ I think our key will be: https://github.com/blog/966-improved-subversion-client-support
17:24 mgage_ I'll send you an email with it if I haven't already   -- enjoy the films.  ttyl
17:25 mgage_ I sent it already -- Friday night about 9pm
17:25 aubreyja I've got it - one question - we'll want to make mathjax a git 'submodule' of the webwork git repo I think. I wonder if that will translate cleanly to a subversion 'external resource'?
17:26 aubreyja (that's what it is now, both have the effect of pulling down 3rd party code)
17:26 mgage_ I don't know -- if necessary we could leave it out of github code for now -- if downloading it to svn confuses svn
17:27 mgage_ but it seems like submodule should translate properly
17:27 aubreyja This would be a good thing for me to test in a branch
17:27 mgage_ it's easy enough for a developer to grab the mathjax code separately,
17:28 aubreyja then I can send you a pull request once it's working (if it's working)
17:28 mgage_ yes -- I think we need to test the svn support a few times in a branch before we try it on the trunk version.
17:28 mgage_ ok -- sounds good to me.   my master branch in github/mgage is reasonably stable -- but not feature complete
17:29 mgage_ but instructors are the only ones who would notice that
17:29 aubreyja alright, I'll work on it…next up http://theislandpresident.com/ and then I should be back around this afternoon.
17:30 mgage_ ttyl
17:32 aubreyja If you like documentaries this one was very good: http://twitchfilm.com/news/2011/08/mads-brugger-executes-the-greatest-documentary-stunt-ever-in-the-ambassador.php
