14:41 goehle hey mgage
14:41 mgage hi
14:42 goehle Just wanted to let you know I"m about to submit a new pull request to develop
14:43 mgage kk -- I'll look for it.  I'm pretty much caught up on pull requests for development.  I'm waiting for Jason to pull my requests into release/2.7   -- I think we are in the home stretch for that one
14:43 goehle I added in "achievement items".  Right now they are awarded for gaining levels.  They are one time use things that allow students to extend a due date, or get half credit on a problem, ect...
14:43 goehle nice
14:43 goehle the new math4 looks really sharp
14:43 goehle is that part of 2.7?
14:44 mgage Do you want to join the maintainers list for openwebwork?   Would you have time to help integrate things?  -- it's perfectly ok if you don't -- you are doing a great job of adding features.
14:44 goehle it would help me keep up to date on whats happening ...
14:44 mgage yes math4 is part of 2.7, including  iron particle's additions.
14:44 mgage kk
14:45 goehle I do have  a bugfix for that, btw
14:45 goehle I suppose I should open a new branch and go through the proper channels
14:47 goehle what is involved in being a maintainer?
14:48 mgage nothing is required -- but this means that you have push and pull access to openwebwork
14:48 mgage I just signed you up
14:49 mgage so you can review pull requests and decide whether they need more work or are ready to be pulled into the main repo
14:50 mgage you can see the others -- I've been the main person handling pull requests --- jason has also but he's rather busy at the moment since he is moving so we could use some  more help.
14:50 goehle Sounds good.  why dont you walk me through that sometime at the coding camp.  Just so I have a good idea of what I'm looking for.
14:50 mgage We're trying to stick to the idea that no-one accepts their own pull requests -- that way at least two people have glanced at the code before it's admitted.   :-)
14:50 goehle I wouldn't be able to do anything next week because I'm going to a different conference anyway
14:50 goehle that is a very good idea
14:51 goehle ok, pull request for the bug fix is in.  That should be quick one
14:51 mgage that's fine -- I've signed you up so you will be able to look around a bit more.  for example you should be able to see whether the pull request you just submitted will merge cleanly or not
14:56 goehle ah I see
14:56 mgage I just merged it --- it's a small change.
14:56 mgage I'll get it up on hosted2 later today
14:57 goehle Nice.  It wasn't a huge deal the only thing it affected was the text for the cancel/accept tabs was missing when you were editing or exporting.  The tab titles were there but the description text was missin
14:57 goehle looks like the achievement items pull merges cleanly as well
14:58 goehle however someone should take a deeper look at that
14:58 goehle I poked around at it a bit today, but its likely there are a bugs in there somewhere
14:58 mgage I'll also take a look at the new achievement stuff when I can -- and then pull that into develop
15:12 goehle nice.  It shoudn't catch anything on fire. I tried to be better about committing more.  I still wasn't great about keeping it to one change/fix per submit.
15:18 goehle quck question, is there a way to add a commit to a pull request without deleting and resubmitting?  I'm in the stage where I keep finding little things that needs fixing and I have to keep resubmitting :P
15:29 mgage joined #webwork
15:30 mgage goehle:  yes.  in fact if you just push the commit to your own github it is automatically added to the existing pull request.
15:31 mgage no need to redo the pull request
