13:43 aubreyja joined #webwork
13:45 aubreyja morning
13:45 mgage hi
13:55 aubreyja I hope the gsoc thing works out - might be a path for us to get into the program
14:08 mgage me too.  I think the student is not yet solidly in the loop (at least the webwork part) but it gives us a chance to talk to Mike Bocherard again.
14:10 mgage I've got to go prepare two lectures first (my heavy teaching day today) but I also want to get some invitation letters out for the code camps today.  If you get a chance could you contact Djun Kim?  I'll try to get a note out to Danny Glin and to Davide.
14:10 aubreyja Sounds good - I'll do it this afternoon after my classes
14:11 mgage also -- what is stephen montgomery-smith's status/interest? I was reminded because he applied for a sage trac account
14:13 aubreyja He's moved things pretty far along I think. His most recent activity was last week. I believe he has a freebsd port that builds successfully. It will be summer before he polishes it off though
14:15 mgage remind me -- freebsd port of what?
14:15 mgage of the webwork codebase?
14:16 aubreyja of sage - I thought that's what you were talking about
14:16 mgage aaah ok.  I thought I remembered that he was interested in webwork development of some kind as well.
14:16 aubreyja He hasn't worked much with webwork; he doesn't really teach any courses that use it
14:17 mgage but I might have gotten confused.  Was wondering if he was appropriate for user interface issues on webwork
14:18 aubreyja I doubt this is something he would be interested in, and as far as I know he doesn't know any javascript
14:18 mgage Glad to have an up-to-date freebsd port of sage in any case -- it will simplify using it as a single cell server.
