19:28 goehle hey mgage
19:47 mgage hi  -- I see you fixed passed answers in gateway quizzes
19:48 goehle yeah
19:48 goehle I wanted to ask if that was a hotfix kind of issue
19:48 mgage I was just going to ask the same.
19:48 goehle It wouldn't be a huge problem to backport it
19:48 mgage In the interests of developing a protocol I'll ask it as an issue
19:49 goehle and I know that people use the feature for gateway quizzes
19:49 goehle to address student concerns
19:49 goehle etc..
19:49 goehle who will you ask?
19:49 mgage right and we'll get people to comment on whether it needs to be a hot fix or not -- Starting with Gavin
19:49 goehle o,
19:49 goehle ok
19:49 mgage but also see who else chimes in.
19:50 goehle I suppose that could just be part of the pull request
19:50 mgage it's a little artificial but I want to practice and see if we can develop something non ad hoc for figuring out what should be a hot fix, what should go into a release and what should just sit.
19:50 mgage student -- be back in a minute
19:50 goehle k
19:50 mgage several minutes
19:50 goehle :D

20:12 goehle oops aubreyja ;)
20:13 aubreyja dang it - did I just merge a bad pull request?
20:13 goehle no
20:13 aubreyja what's the oops all about then?
20:13 goehle but we were wondering if it needed to be a hotfix
20:13 aubreyja ah, I see, yes probably - didn't see the chat here
20:13 goehle and the idea was we were going to ask, as part of the pull request, if it needed to be back ported
20:14 goehle no worries
20:14 goehle I should have written something quickly if I didn't want it to be pulled.  and its nice for stuff not to just languish there
20:14 aubreyja I can tell you that the Missouri people want this sooner than a regular release might come
20:15 goehle well that seems like a good enough reason then
20:16 aubreyja thanks for fixing the xss probs - did paul email you back to confirm?
20:24 goehle not yet
20:24 goehle well see.  fixing those may uncover more
20:47 mgage goehle aubreyja   -- back again -- I just posted comments on both the closed pull request on the new one to master.
20:47 mgage another student
20:48 mgage but before I go.  -- I think this probably should be a hot fix, but I want to start modeling some kind of process by which we make this decision other than the gut feeling of whoever is looking at it at the moment.
20:53 aubreyja sounds good - I do to - I'll make an argument for it...
21:03 aubreyja argument made
21:04 mgage kk -- I still have a student -- can someone point Gavin at this and have him make a comment/recommendation.   Then we'll pull it   :-)
