15:29 goehle hey mgage
15:38 mgage hi
15:38 goehle I was going to ask if there was a way to restore things from the answer log
15:38 goehle but I'm just going to do it by hand
15:39 mgage there is no automatic way to do that that I know of.
15:39 mgage are you using ww2.5.1.1?     ww2.5.1.3 is the first one that has the answers in the database instead of in the flat file
15:40 goehle did we end up removing hte file altogether
15:40 goehle I have it in any case
15:40 goehle my version is semicustom since I put in essay answers early
15:41 mgage that I don't know -- I haven't played with it much since you submitted it .  I was originally going to add it to 2.5.2 with all of the new UI stuff -- but getting the UI stable is taking some time and several people want essay answers now
15:43 mgage if you have some spare cycles I would like you to check the differences between your custom version and the version in 2.5.1.3 -- I'll have that version finalized by this weekend (I hope) and you can pull it down from github.com.  I'll send you an email when it is ready
15:43 goehle sure
15:50 goehle what are you wanting me to look for?
15:52 mgage well your version works since you are using it -- if the distributed version is different we'll want to make sure that it works too -- it's safest if at some point the version you (the author) is using is the same as everyone else's :-)
15:53 goehle ah sure
15:53 mgage it's roughly the "eat your own dog food" principle
15:53 goehle sure
15:53 goehle dont wan tme to be running the version that does what its supposed to
15:53 mgage that's fine, but we want to run it too :-)
15:54 goehle :)  I'll take a look.  There may be some differences since I have upgraded our main webwork server since the begining of last fall
15:54 goehle (I do that during the summer)

21:20 mgage aubreyja: hi
21:21 aubreyja hi - just a sec - phone call
21:22 mgage np
21:49 aubreyja sorry -back
21:50 aubreyja mgage: hi
21:50 mgage np -- I've had a student too.  Just checking to see if you were watching Lars' comments -- at first I thought we missed a patch but now I suspect he didn't restart his server.
21:51 aubreyja ah, and I did see the now about OPL-update from Arnie - I'm not sure what happened to that fix. I'm sure Paul submitted it
21:52 mgage it's in ww2.5.1.1.  -- actually now it's in   webwork2-dev master as well because
21:54 mgage I just synced the two of them.  This does point out one of things we have to watch for in doing a release.  If there are too many branches/releases around it can be very easy to miss a bugfix/hotfix in one of them.
21:55 aubreyja ok, so the OPL-update fix is in webwork2-dev/ww2.5.1.1 and master? Then I don't understand how it didn't get into webwork2 when I merged yesterday
21:55 mgage It wasn't in master last night
21:55 mgage I think.
21:57 aubreyja ah, I guess I'll just have to see where Paul submitted it to.  You're right though, about the problem it illustrates
21:57 mgage there is a similar issue with Lars -- although not the one he thinks.
21:59 mgage In pg-dev   pg/lib/LimitedPolynomial.pm  is gone -- as it should be because Davide moved code from that back into contextLimitedPolynomial.pl where it belonged --- I created LimitedPolynomial.pm temporarily a few years back to fix an annoying error message until Davide could find the permanent fix.
22:01 mgage in pg the file still there -- (pg hasn't been updated from pg-dev yet).  The problem of course is that the files being used by the "experts" are the ones that are up to date -- since if they notice an error they fix it right away -- but this might or might not get passed back to the non-experts/conservatives version.
22:14 mgage it's a little worse than I thought -- it's now fixed in 2.5.1.3  but not in 2.5.1.1 in webwork2-dev
22:18 aubreyja ah…yeah, we need to sort this out :)  BTW, did you make much progress on the git wiki page(s)?
22:18 mgage no -- I fell asleep :-(
22:19 mgage My version of paul's patch is https://github.com/mgage/webwork2-dev/commit/f7a14cba1e486f555b7dcb93a262efb25e24a600   -- I updated the branches on my github
22:20 aubreyja ok, did he submit that to your github or openwebwork?  I'll port it over to webwork2 tonight and work some on the git docs
22:21 aubreyja I've got to run - be back on in a couple hours. ttyl
22:21 mgage ttyl
