13:29 mgage_ morning
14:06 djun joined #webwork
14:31 djun morning! Thanks for enabling bugzilla access.
14:32 djun I'm just pushing the initial commit of the WOPL to github
14:32 djun For the sake of preserving history, it contains exactly what an svn checkout would give you.
14:33 djun At this point (or very soon), we should disable write-access to svn for the NPL

15:19 mgage_ hi djun
15:19 mgage_ djun: hi
15:19 djun hi mike
15:19 mgage_ just checking in - - things goingok?
15:20 djun looks like the last "git svn fetch" didn't work exactly as planned.  Doing a bit or cleanup
15:20 djun but overall going well
15:20 djun how are you?
15:20 mgage_ I'm doing fine, a bit tired after the code camp, but recovering.
15:21 mgage_ I'm going to try to write out a summary today -- and I'm also catching up on some other correspondence that got a bit behind during the last week.
15:22 mgage_ I'll probably go into school  to clean up and rearrange the 1106 room -- and pack up the camera.  I'll let you know when I go in.
15:22 djun :)
15:23 djun sounds good - if I could meet you there to go over the theme stuff that would be great
15:23 mgage_ ok -- I'll let you know -- let me get caught up a little here
15:24 mgage_ I'll let you know when I go in.
15:24 djun sure, no hurry on my side
15:33 mgage_ I'm taking a poll for naming the badges for getting questions right.   The names in Geoff's  code are MathAchievemts and Mathchievements.  I prefer the former -- any opinions or ideas for other names?
15:44 djun joined #webwork
15:50 mgage_ djun: I'm taking a poll for naming the badges for getting questions right.  The names in Geoff's  code are MathAchievemts and Mathchievements.  I prefer the former -- any opinions or ideas for other names?
15:55 djun I haven't looked at that feature.  In what contexts do the names appear?
15:58 djun Both of the options are "Math" specific.  If this is a general feature, perhaps it should just be called Achievement.  Or just badge?  Things that display to the user should probably be course-specific and configurable
16:00 mgage_ hmm -- it seems to be broken right this moment (you can see the Achievements and Achievement Editor buttons on hosted2 courses (e.g. maa103) -- it gives badges and points for getting a problem right on the first try ---- starting homework substantially before it is due and so forth
16:01 mgage_ that's a good point that including Math is limiting.  -- we could configure it on a course by course basis -- but I think it would be nice to have a name that carried throughout WeBWorK and meant the same thing.
16:02 mgage_ in for each subject
16:03 djun sorry, could you post the URL?  I've managed to bury it...
16:03 mgage_ https://hosted2.webwork.rochester.edu/webwork2/maa102
16:04 mgage_ but it's not working right at the moment -- I think one of the merges overwrote the URLPath file -- I'll check it in a little bit
16:04 djun OK :)

18:39 mgage_ djun:  hi -- shall I come by?  -- I can take you up the genessee falls (about 10 minutes away) and we can walk around and talk
18:40 djun sure, sounds great
18:40 mgage_ up to the genesee falls -- no swimming involved :-)
18:40 mgage_ ok see you in about 20 minutes
18:41 djun great
