Meeting Notes

Moodle 2.6 progress

  • Release notes are being prepared. Devs should add information related to changes there.
  • Two new features still in progress. Work on these will continue after 2.6 release.
  • Atto editor was considered but won't be in Core. Will consider editors in next cycle.

QA Testing

  • Already underway (QA Dashboard)
  • A reminder about using labels
    • When adding features that need a QA test, add the qa_test_required label.
    • For automated testing devs can add the acceptance_test_required label.
    • New features should also have a docs_required label added (and now is the time to add those docs).
    • There is a guide to using Official labels
    • There is also a guide to writing Automated tests

Question behaviours

  • Question behaviours can now add summary information to the quiz review page.
  • Change to API is not backwards compatible, but not a big change for question behaviour devs. (No changes required to question types.)

Quick Data Generation

  • There are a number of ways to add data into Moodle in an automated fashion. (Notes)
  • tool_uploadcourse allows admins to upload courses from CSV file
    • course content can be based on a backup
  • tool_uploadusers allows admins to upload users from CSV file (not new)
  • enrol_flatfile allows users to be enrolled using a CSV file (not new)
  • testing_data_generator provides methods that can be used in automated testing and can be used to fill example course with dummy data
    • generator does not guarantee compatibility with capabilities, settings, events or actions
  • Admin tool maketestcourse.php can be used to generate courses of varying sizes
  • Other sources of data are web services and Behat features.

Performance testing

  • Perforamce testing requires big data sets
  • We are using the large course generator
  • Added JMeter test generator, which allows...
    • Testing performance of a change
    • Testing of weekly/larger release
    • Comparing hardware
    • Tuning
  • Configured by setting the "before" and "after" branches in a script and basing versions on backups (DB and data).

Plugins

  • Changes to Plugins Directory
    • New RSS feeds (new plugins as well as updates)
    • Links to translations in plugins entries
  • Plugins Directory ready for 2.6 versions
  • Awards from editors, ratings and reviews needed

Plugin management

  • Updates and cleanup to make plugins faster
  • Various plugins can now have sub-plugins
  • Names must be unique across all plugins, so think seriously about this.

Session changes

  • Newly redesigned session driver now works with PHP, file and memcache
  • Performance is dependant on underlying PHP driver
  • Not a significant performance improvement, but more consistency and cooperation between session drivers.
  • Should benefit clustered servers, where other improvements have been made.

HTML Guidelines

  • Need for consistency, clearer DOM and more accessibility
  • Activity module authors should attempt to follow guidelines in pages to achieve semantic consistency
  • Please be involved in a discussion about this.

Policy decisions

  • We now have a tracker component to help decide development related policy changes.
  • Example: New features don't need to have a JS fallback, but do need to comply with accessibility guidelines. (MDL-41535)

Backup and restore

  • In 2.6 we now support gzip which allows bigger (>4gb) backups.
  • A progress bar shows activity while course is being restored.

Mike Churchward Its very hard to hear 9:23:02 PM
Gareth J Barnard I missed Dan's iMoot presentation on Behat in Moodle - waiting for the replay on YouTube - beyond https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Behat_integration what is the best way to learn how to create automated tests please? 9:25:08 PM
Justin Filip Look at examples of other tests in Moodle already? 9:25:35 PM
Dan Poltawski Gareth J Barnard: https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Acceptance_testing 9:25:50 PM
Martin Dougiamas Anyone here working opn questions? 9:26:09 PM
Justin Filip Or, what Dan said. =) 9:26:27 PM
Marina Glancy https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1iQnjdmHZ_CQp44iQRqocxUuV19_idTMHikZ6GL54v1Y/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000 9:26:37 PM
Andrew Nicols Andrew Nicols appears a touch late 9:26:51 PM
Davo Smith Is it just question behaviours or types as well? 9:26:57 PM
sam marshall Not working on questions. 9:27:11 PM
sam marshall davo - I think it's just behaviours 9:27:15 PM
Davo Smith ok - that's a relief 9:27:24 PM
Gareth J Barnard @jfilip But they are the output. Thanks Dan - any good screen casts you would recommend too? 9:27:26 PM
Andrew Nicols Marina has dyed her hair (again)? 9:27:58 PM
Jason Fowler Off topic a bit there Andrew :P 9:28:18 PM
Andrew Nicols heh 9:28:23 PM
Andrew Nicols Sorry, I got stuck in traffic and all sorts 9:28:43 PM
Dan Poltawski Gareth: I don't think so (I don't think it'd help, to be honest). I showed it for about 2 mins at that imoot talk 9:28:57 PM
Gareth J Barnard @Dan - thanks - I'll read through the links posted. 9:29:33 PM
Jason Fowler heh, I got stuck with Windows not allowing me to uninstall the Google Talk plugin in order to install the Google Hangouts plugin ... 9:29:38 PM
Justin Filip Gareth, I was referring to the existing code in Moodle that runs the tests within Moodle. 9:30:18 PM
Dan Poltawski (its 'cool' to see the browser doing its thing magically, but it doesn't help so much with getting it setup ) 9:30:20 PM
Eloy Lafuente bloody iGadgets. No way yo connect to the stream in a reliable way. I've tried hangouts, google+, youtube and ios safari. Uninstalling all the google ones right now. 9:30:27 PM
Martin Dougiamas Eloy it's just a youtube video, should work nearly on anything 9:30:57 PM
Eloy Lafuente tell it to my ipad, please. 9:31:08 PM
Eloy Lafuente now I'm in the laptop. 9:31:21 PM
Martin Dougiamas  ? 9:31:25 PM
Gareth J Barnard @jfilip - no worries - just looking to understand how to install and create tests. 9:31:31 PM
Jason Fowler heh, the laptop should play nicely 9:31:32 PM
Eloy Lafuente yes, i'm there, listening to marina 9:31:33 PM
Eloy Lafuente though it does not show the "live" red light. 9:32:10 PM
Jason Fowler Shame Tim won't be here to respond to what I have to say, he was the one that requested the discussion 9:32:13 PM
Martin Dougiamas i'm looking forward to better testing using really huge datasets 9:32:38 PM
Martin Dougiamas Note it's good for UI testing as well as performance things 9:33:10 PM
sam marshall 'make large course' tool worth mentioning at this point? 9:33:12 PM
Dan Poltawski yep 9:33:24 PM
Justin Filip Once you get large data then you move onto the next problem: testing with multiple people hitting the same Moodle site at the same time with that large dataset in your DB. 9:33:54 PM
Martin Dougiamas suspect she might be getting to it, Sam 9:34:17 PM
sam marshall cool 9:34:23 PM
Dan Poltawski heh, has anyone seen the comments on the youtube video 9:34:41 PM
Dan Poltawski The Urban Ninja I love using moodle for school
The Urban Ninja How long did it take to create moodle?
9:34:46 PM
sam marshall btw, the generator stuff is pretty nice to use 9:34:52 PM
sam marshall (imo) 9:34:57 PM
Adrian Greeve A tad difficult to see the example. 9:35:00 PM
Rex Lorenzo @jfilip: https://github.com/moodlehq/moodle-performance-comparison 9:35:28 PM
sam marshall adrian - make fullscreen and iut will switch to hd mode 9:35:50 PM
sam marshall you can read code there 9:35:59 PM
David Mudrák Dan P, please don't confuse the speaker with mentioning ninjas 9:36:00 PM
sam marshall er if on youtube that is 9:36:15 PM
Justin Filip Rex, interesting, thanks. 9:36:17 PM
Adrian Greeve Not on my connection it won't. I already have it full screen. 9:36:31 PM
Dan Poltawski yeah, maybe we need a differnet back channel which isn't for the speaker to read 9:36:31 PM
Adrian Greeve I'll have to rewatch it. 9:36:44 PM
Andrew Nicols So we can talk about the speaker behind their back? 9:36:51 PM
Dan Poltawski Adrian - the link to the presentation is up there^ 9:36:59 PM
sam marshall adrian - ah sorry, did on mine (took 10 seconds to update) 9:36:59 PM
David Monllaó I will be talking about that tool 9:37:16 PM
Dan Poltawski https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1iQnjdmHZ_CQp44iQRqocxUuV19_idTMHikZ6GL54v1Y/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000 9:37:30 PM
Rex Lorenzo Why would events not trigger during data generation? 9:38:13 PM
Dan Poltawski they don't all use the api functions 9:38:25 PM
Rex Lorenzo Ah... 9:38:49 PM
Eloy Lafuente yay, finally got it in the ipad via google+ 9:38:54 PM
David Monllaó IIRC Marina is working on using the API 9:39:21 PM
Dan Poltawski (I mean you've got to remember they started from making the bare basics for unit testing) 9:39:50 PM
Rex Lorenzo Or trigger the necessary events that would be called if you used the API? 9:39:59 PM
Justin Filip It's probably a good idea to have the option of using the Moodle API. 1) I want it fast, I don't care about events. 2) I want a "true" simulation, use the API and trigger events, I don't care how long it takes. 9:40:14 PM
David Mudrák thanks marina 9:41:01 PM
Jason Fowler jason likes the Portal turret on the shelf ... "Are you still there?" 9:41:22 PM
David Monllaó ok for everybody? 9:42:02 PM
Davo Smith better 9:42:29 PM
Adrian Greeve Yrs, much better. 9:42:55 PM
Jason Fowler doing this outside on the patio to avoid waking up my daughter was a crazy idea 9:44:22 PM
Andrew Nicols cold? 9:44:31 PM
Andrew Nicols I'm back in the office 9:44:57 PM
Jason Fowler a little 9:45:05 PM
Jason Fowler made worse by the fact the garden sprinklers have been on 9:45:27 PM
Rossiani Wijaya lots of bugs? 9:45:48 PM
Jason Fowler screen is covered in midgies 9:46:17 PM
Martin Dougiamas (mute your mike if not speaking) 9:46:18 PM
Martin Dougiamas and lol 9:46:45 PM
Dan Poltawski (waiting to hear this..) 9:47:03 PM
Martin Dougiamas David's script makes this all reasonably simple once it's set up 9:47:58 PM
Martin Dougiamas you'll be wanting to performance test after every line of code :P 9:48:15 PM
Justin Filip This is great. It all works? 9:48:37 PM
Dan Poltawski tsh! 9:48:51 PM
Martin Dougiamas yep 9:48:52 PM
Dan Poltawski it'd be great having more people looking at it, not many people have tried it out yet (myself included) 9:49:21 PM
Eric Merrill I've used it a bit. Although it was a bit confusing to setup the first time. Needs a bit of docs work. 9:49:29 PM
Justin Filip I will definitely give it a try. 9:49:36 PM
Mary Cooch sounds in the background? 9:50:24 PM
Justin Filip Eric, It can't be any more awkward to setup than the Behat tests, can it? 9:50:25 PM
Michael de Raadt (David's housemates.) 9:50:36 PM
Mary Cooch ah ok 9:50:41 PM
Aparup Banerjee ah 9:50:43 PM
Martin Dougiamas Martin Dougiamas waits for him to shout STFU 9:50:55 PM
Eric Merrill jfilip: I've actually found that behat has become pretty easy (used to be much harder) 9:50:57 PM
Rex Lorenzo Yeah, the results page is very interesting. We are using it to test different muc cache settings and server side configs. Anyone have igbinary turned on for their prod setups? 9:51:01 PM
sam marshall I'm really glad Moodle HQ are doing this stuff. One issue, large systems like us have setups where the web server is on different physical hardware (requiring network round trips) from database, filesystem, and memcache if included. There were things which made Moodle 2.4 slower on that type of system, it has different perf characteristics. Any plans to do regular tests on a system with web server on different physical hardware from the filesystem (NFS) etc?. 9:51:10 PM
sam marshall obv we could do that with this code I assume... 9:51:30 PM
Martin Dougiamas Definitely Sam. We'll be testing on a cluster similar to the one we built for moodle.org 9:51:42 PM
sam marshall awesome, thanks 9:51:57 PM
Andrew Nicols rexlorenzo@gmail.com: what effect did igbinary have for you? 9:52:46 PM
Martin Dougiamas uses glusterFS and galera for db 9:52:47 PM
Eric Merrill I did notice when running my tests that my results were… jumpy. Quite a bit of fluctuation from run to run. I need to fiddle more to see if it was something I was doing or not, but I would probably not run just one test and assume it's reprsentative 9:53:08 PM
Rex Lorenzo igbinary cuts session site in half. But not using it in prod yet, still testing 9:53:20 PM
Rex Lorenzo *size 9:53:24 PM
Andrew Nicols And perf though? 9:53:32 PM
Dan Poltawski Eric: david has been trying different variations and mentioned the number earlier where getting consistent results 9:53:53 PM
Martin Dougiamas for sure, eric, wait to you see the graphs david has made at the end 9:53:55 PM
Eric Merrill Thanks - I'm having a hard time understanding him :/ 9:54:28 PM
Martin Dougiamas David, do you have those graphs? 9:55:19 PM
Dan Poltawski don't bother with solaris 9:55:55 PM
Jason Fowler if you work with Solaris, Moodle performance is likely to be the least of your issues :P 9:55:57 PM
Dan Poltawski heh 9:56:41 PM
Andrew Nicols I was speaking to someone at a large British University running Solaris for Eevverrything 9:56:42 PM
Eloy Lafuente with oracle surely, lol 9:56:56 PM
Martin Dougiamas I spent most of the 90's on Solaris workstations 9:56:58 PM
Dan Poltawski Andrew used to be the resident solaris expert in our last job 9:57:18 PM
Dan Poltawski he will be happy to work on it again 9:57:25 PM
Andrew Nicols muahhahahah.. I made them all feel like they were running Debian 9:57:32 PM
Eloy Lafuente sure, once you abandone it, never return, lol. 9:57:42 PM
Andrew Nicols I'm actually on the OpenCSW packaging team still ;\ 9:57:43 PM
Andrew Nicols I really should quite 9:57:47 PM
Andrew Nicols quit* 9:57:51 PM
Andrew Nicols (the opencsw team) 9:57:55 PM
Gareth J Barnard Used Solaris in the 90's too when compiling C++ took 40 mins on a relatively medium project. 9:58:23 PM
Martin Dougiamas I think this tool could really develop into a nice analysis tool 9:58:24 PM
Martin Dougiamas it compares any number of runs with each other 9:58:38 PM
Eric Merrill Yeah. I really liked it. I think the thing I would like is if you can average a number of runs, and compare that against another average of runs 9:59:27 PM
Eric Merrill If that makes sense 9:59:35 PM
Eric Merrill But overall I liked it a lot 9:59:56 PM
Eloy Lafuente I think I've an OUTDATED version available @ http://ci.stronk7.com:8787/~stronk7/perf/ 10:00:24 PM
Dan Poltawski (David are you showing us a screen that is off screen?) 10:00:29 PM
Eloy Lafuente (remark: OUTDATED, 2-3 wekks old) 10:00:36 PM
Gareth J Barnard Very Cool :D 10:01:05 PM
Dan Poltawski (show people pretty graphs - the solution to everything in life) 10:01:24 PM
Martin Dougiamas well it works when people are starting to talk about solaris 10:01:44 PM
Gareth J Barnard @DanP will that work with the camelCase discussion? ;) 10:02:08 PM
Andrew Nicols Andrew Nicols suspects that the camelCase discussion will soon cease 10:02:36 PM
sam marshall btw, this looks pretty awesome 10:02:39 PM
Dan Poltawski David doesn't understand my english either 10:03:04 PM
Eric Merrill Indeed. Big thumbs up! 10:03:11 PM
Justin Filip Very cool! 10:03:15 PM
David Monllaó Eric, about the fluctuations try with "S" size, 30 users and 5 loops (by default) results should be stable 10:04:04 PM
Eloy Lafuente still the forum post redirect with all zeros, eh 10:04:21 PM
Andrew Nicols Huh Eloy? 10:04:33 PM
Martin Dougiamas yeah there is a bug there with redirects still 10:04:42 PM
Dan Poltawski BTW david - you should post on the hardware and perfmance forum 10:04:43 PM
Dan Poltawski (don't think you've posted about it yet?) 10:04:49 PM
Eric Merrill DavidMonllao: Thanks. I'll play with it a bit more 10:05:02 PM
Eloy Lafuente nah we have an ongoing issue to capture info from redirects (internal problem) 10:05:06 PM
Martin Dougiamas finally new calendar types! 10:05:25 PM
Eric Merrill DavidMonllao: It's mostly server load and time taken that fluctuate (but are also the numbers I care most about :D ) 10:05:31 PM
Eloy Lafuente yeah, environment must be STABLE for them to have any sense. 10:05:49 PM
Jason Fowler DavidMonllao: can you please mute your mic? 10:06:02 PM
Eloy Lafuente i got it perfectly. best everybody! 10:06:21 PM
Eric Merrill For those who use load balancers, I have two new cache stores waiting for approval that greatly speed sites 10:06:35 PM
Eric Merrill memcache(d)cluster 10:06:40 PM
Martin Dougiamas w00t! 10:06:48 PM
Eloy Lafuente you did it! 10:06:54 PM
Mark Nelson Calendar types - Gregorian comes with core 10:06:55 PM
Mark Nelson (obviously) 10:07:11 PM
David Monllaó if you are running the tests in a dev. client computer is normal 10:07:11 PM
Martin Dougiamas that broken image is worrying :P 10:08:20 PM
Dan Poltawski there is a MDLSITE 10:08:30 PM
David Mudrák blame the cluster 10:08:35 PM
David Monllaó an isolated server will return stable resutls, at least it should, we are backing up database and dataroot at the beginning and restoring it after the first test plan run 10:08:44 PM
Martin Dougiamas ffs 10:08:45 PM
Dan Poltawski yep 10:09:38 PM
David Mudrák no 10:09:40 PM
Rossiani Wijaya yes apu 10:09:59 PM
Eric Merrill Aparup: I heard there were plans for auto-release on git branch update. Is that still in the work (or there and I didn't know it)? 10:10:00 PM
Martin Dougiamas wow that's like a 2 min lag 10:10:09 PM
Gareth J Barnard If a user uses the automated installer for a plugin can they choose then to subscribe to comments? As might be helpful. 10:10:30 PM
Martin Dougiamas (If Google doesn't add a better built-in chat to Hangouts on Air I think I would like to try a better tool for this meeting next time … ) 10:12:14 PM
David Mudrák Eric Merrill, we are a bit worried about it 10:12:37 PM
Eric Merrill DavidMudrak: Or even a 'click here to fetch your new version from github', even if it wasnt completely automated 10:13:14 PM
sam marshall I never update my plugins, too lazy/busy ;( Have automation to update github for all of them when i run a script, but not the moodle bit 10:13:22 PM
Rex Lorenzo Really like the Github code searching 10:13:27 PM
David Mudrák Eric, that is already supported 10:13:30 PM
David Mudrák we have Github repository 10:13:36 PM
David Mudrák so you can pick the ZIP directly via it 10:13:49 PM
Eric Merrill DavidMudrak: Oh - Ill have to try that out 10:13:55 PM
David Mudrák Yes, it's really cool 10:14:05 PM
David Mudrák (credit goes to Dan P) 10:14:12 PM
Eric Merrill DavidMudrak: Thanks. It's hard keeping up with everything! 10:14:24 PM
David Mudrák nah, tell me about that 10:14:37 PM
Rex Lorenzo Where is the code search on the plugin page? Is that only for selected users? 10:14:40 PM
Mark Nelson It would definitely be nice to have it automated, especially when you are doing a minor change which you then have to apply to multiple branches 10:14:47 PM
Dan Poltawski I think pushing a tag would make sense 10:15:01 PM
Martin Dougiamas yeah I agree. 10:15:06 PM
Eric Merrill yeah 10:15:08 PM
Dan Poltawski I think that a tag is enough of a thing to say 'ive thought about it' 10:15:35 PM
Martin Dougiamas Git is so fast … shouldn't be hard to poll every hour or so 10:15:39 PM
David Mudrák It depends on people being pretty disciplined in using Git 10:15:44 PM
Martin Dougiamas we could use special Moodle plugins tags for this 10:16:04 PM
Dan Poltawski DavidMudrak: you could even call it moodle.org-plugins-v1.1 or something crazy 10:16:13 PM
sam marshall yes tag would be awesome 10:16:13 PM
Martin Dougiamas plugin_release_trigger_5 or something 10:16:24 PM
Jason Fowler release_version_20131022 ? 10:16:35 PM
Jason Fowler and only rebuild the zip on incremented version numbers? 10:16:54 PM
Andrew Nicols release_26_20131022? 10:17:14 PM
Jason Fowler that makes more sense Andrew 10:17:25 PM
Justin Filip Most of the 3rd party plugins that we track at RL don't use tags at all in their Git repositories for their plugins. 10:17:48 PM
David Mudrák David Mudrak is still sceptic about it. I just saw too much of creativity of our good contributors 10:17:55 PM
sam marshall don't like numbers personally, dates are good since alkready in version.php etc. 10:18:00 PM
Dan Poltawski I suggest a tag because people don't routinely tag 10:18:13 PM
Dan Poltawski but, it fits perfectly with the use case, and is in the git tool 10:18:27 PM
Eric Merrill Yeah, it makes it explicit that you want to auto-release a version 10:18:39 PM
Dan Poltawski and distinct from just commiting 10:18:47 PM
Justin Filip I think tags are a good idea for something like that, or something within a comment that is parsed. 10:18:55 PM
Eric Merrill What's the current backlog on plugins awaiting approval? 10:19:14 PM
Justin Filip like "CONTRIB-XXX [commit_msg] #release_20131022" 10:19:20 PM
Justin Filip But at that point, you might as well be using a tag anyway. =) 10:19:42 PM
David Mudrák Eric Merrill, Waiting for approval plugins (19) 10:20:05 PM
Eric Merrill DavidMudrak: Thanks 10:21:08 PM
Gareth J Barnard I use tags for all my releases, perhaps if it's so important then a 'tag' link should be manditory? 10:21:45 PM
David Mudrák Let's encourage people to tag releases, let's make the "new release by the tag" easier but please, let us not force anything. There are people using their ways, SCMs, worflows etc 10:22:46 PM
Dan Poltawski 1 10:23:00 PM
Eloy Lafuente (agree) 10:23:07 PM
Mike Churchward Yep… Encourage strongly... 10:23:15 PM
Dan Poltawski (of course its already mandatory to upload from the webpage :P) 10:23:15 PM
Eloy Lafuente i use .doc files to keep my history here. 10:23:23 PM
Justin Filip Yeah, if someone isn't using tags in their repository but is still putting up a "release" on plugins DB, that still worsk for me. 10:23:25 PM
Eric Merrill I would think you would need to set it up in your plugin settings (repo, branchs, enable tags, etc), completely optional 10:23:26 PM
sam marshall not forcing = fine, but can we have automated never-look-at-moodle-website updates at least as an option 10:23:46 PM
David Mudrák sam marshall, we can expose it via web services and let the community write tools for it 10:24:12 PM
sam marshall btw I think we can delete my items from agenda, since i'm not in hangout and they're notr that important and long meeting is long 10:24:54 PM
Dan Poltawski pff, we need the community to test moodle via uploading on the site :P 10:24:54 PM
Justin Filip The problem would be if someone just dumps something in the tip of a branch in Git that is in-progress code and someone updates their site with that code which isn't even finished and potentially breaks that plugin or core Moodle functionality due to inadvertently pulling in unstable code. 10:24:57 PM
Rex Lorenzo What about a star rating? 10:25:08 PM
Martin Dougiamas pftt stars 10:25:18 PM
Helen Foster https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugin_reviews 10:25:24 PM
Gareth J Barnard Mind you I only tag with a version number, I've never considered adding a requires Moodle version date. Would help with the questions and the 'requires' using the '$plugin->requires' does not have a one to one mapping with '$release' in core 'version.php'. 10:25:25 PM
Dan Poltawski Yes, its important to remember how pushing a branch now could have an impact 10:25:29 PM
sam marshall by automated I meant, eg via tag. web service if it doesn't suck 10:25:34 PM
sam marshall not any old push 10:25:50 PM
Dan Poltawski (immediately deployed to all moodle sites, etc) 10:25:53 PM
danbennett If partners have done a review of a plugin, maybe share to that from the plugins page itself? Just a thought 10:26:01 PM
Justin Filip Gareth, for our plugins we bake the Moodle version into the plugin version number, e.g. 2.4.x.y, 2.5.x.y, 2.6.x.y so the version number tells you which version of Moodle that release runs on. 10:26:12 PM
Martin Dougiamas Does anyone follow stuff on their own plugins via rss feeds? 10:26:35 PM
Dan Poltawski yes. 10:26:40 PM
David Mudrák no. 10:26:54 PM
Eric Merrill I haven't, but ive been adding them yo my reader now 10:27:00 PM
Dan Poltawski (Btw, you guys should see how painful it is to upload an update to Apple with billions of dollars to make their developer portal) 10:27:03 PM
Gareth J Barnard @jfilip - I do that already - but still get issues with very minor releases where the API changes. 10:27:12 PM
Martin Dougiamas yeah 10:27:16 PM
sam marshall we really encourage people to use github issues if they want to report anything, although i do sometimes reply to comments 10:27:34 PM
sam marshall dan - if moodle can't have more open practices than Apple... 10:27:54 PM
Michael de Raadt Is there any intention to use data captured during update checking and reporting that back to potential downloaders? 10:27:57 PM
Justin Filip Is using the CONTRIB project on the Moodle Tracker still recommended? 10:28:02 PM
Justin Filip (For contrib addons . . . ) 10:28:20 PM
Dan Poltawski Sam: i'm not talking about open, i'm talking about tool usability 10:28:26 PM
David Mudrák jfilip, it really depends imho 10:28:28 PM
Gareth J Barnard @Sam They can use GitHub issues and Tracker, and I use the latter more. 10:28:30 PM
Mark Nelson Yeh, depends on what the developer prefers 10:28:41 PM
sam marshall dan - integrating with git to automatically update, rather than going via a complex form process, would be more open 10:28:43 PM
David Mudrák David Mudrak personally switched to Github tracker for his addons 10:28:44 PM
Jason Fowler Subplugins - AKA plugin-plugins :P 10:28:52 PM
danbennett Didn't know hotpot was so widely downloaded o-O 10:29:20 PM
Jason Fowler bloody hell, it's almost summer, why is it so cold!!! 10:29:31 PM
Martin Dougiamas global warming 10:29:41 PM
Michael de Raadt danbennett: Hotpot is really widely used. 10:29:50 PM
Aparup Banerjee well thats why i want to work in more breakdowns into the statistics page 10:29:57 PM
Jason Fowler o.O global cooling? 10:30:00 PM
Mark Nelson I hear the progress report plugin is pretty awesome 10:30:06 PM
Gareth J Barnard Global weather chaos 10:30:22 PM
Jason Fowler the certificate plugin is pretty decent too 10:30:23 PM
Mark Nelson Lol, no it's not 10:30:30 PM
danbennett Michael d: Just didnt realise how much compared to certificate. heh 10:30:33 PM
Jason Fowler just avoid the pushover one for 2.6 - it's not ready yet 10:30:40 PM
Justin Filip Yay, for plugins love! =) 10:30:46 PM
Martin Dougiamas 10:30:55 PM
Martin Dougiamas Still needs a lot more IMO 10:31:06 PM
Martin Dougiamas (sorry i was referring to db, not the new subplugins fixes) 10:31:50 PM
David Mudrák Petr Å koda, what plugin types support subplugins now? 10:32:18 PM
Petr Škoda https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Subplugins 10:32:24 PM
David Mudrák thanks 10:32:47 PM
Martin Dougiamas When will we have recursive sub-plugins? 10:33:24 PM
Jason Fowler lol 10:33:36 PM
Martin Dougiamas yay perf increase 10:33:54 PM
David Mudrák Yeah, I was facing the limited length of tables in workshopallocation_* plugins, too 10:34:27 PM
David Mudrák *table names 10:34:34 PM
Damyon Wiese contenteditable_* is a bad sub plugin name - atto_* is much better 10:34:38 PM
David Mudrák Aparup, that reminds me - we should have a way to "book" the plugin name you are working on somehow 10:35:06 PM
Dan Poltawski related.. MDL-41310 10:35:08 PM
Moodle Bot https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-41310 - Should we drop our support for Oracle databases?.V: 1, W: 15, Type: Bug, Assignee: Michael de Raadt, Priority: Minor, Status: Open 10:35:09 PM
Martin Dougiamas fgtr 10:35:09 PM
Gareth J Barnard A little discussion on the theme's forum about having 'sub-theme-plugins' so a way that you could create a display component like a 'slider' and then that be included in your theme without the developer adding it. Like 'theme components'. 10:35:22 PM
Aparup Banerjee there was a problem the plugins DB too, but it was resolved by taking a part of the name - iirc 28 chars? 10:35:35 PM
David Mudrák Everybody wants subplugins. 10:35:38 PM
Eloy Lafuente is 2.6 beta out there already ? 10:35:46 PM
Eloy Lafuente in the plugins db 10:35:52 PM
Martin Dougiamas y 10:35:59 PM
David Mudrák David Mudrak will rename to just "shop" 10:36:01 PM
Aparup Banerjee well you can always book by first uploading - it can remain unapproved and you can reschedule for approval when ready again 10:36:09 PM
Aparup Banerjee yes Eloy 10:36:18 PM
Dan Poltawski doh 10:36:22 PM
David Mudrák Aparup, ah 10:36:23 PM
Martin Dougiamas oh no domain name squatting all over again 10:36:28 PM
Eloy Lafuente Eloy Lafuente updates his plugins 10:36:30 PM
Dan Poltawski shouldn't have mentioned oracle 10:36:31 PM
David Mudrák Aparup, does it mean that unapproved plugins block the name forever? 10:36:46 PM
David Mudrák Petr Å koda, when will we support subplugins for all types? 10:37:07 PM
Aparup Banerjee this ofcourse still goes through human eyes - squatters - and unaproved plugins , will be cleaned/ping every now and then 10:37:28 PM

Martin Dougiamas Well of course you would, Eric, it's assigned to you 10:45:47 PM
Eric Merrill  :D 10:45:52 PM
Gareth J Barnard I have to go, thank you all 10:46:17 PM
Eloy Lafuente ciao, Gareth, ty! 10:46:31 PM
Petr Škoda split cache is possible - how does it deal with cache coherence? Does it update all servers on write/delete and read from local? 10:46:33 PM

Aparup Banerjee Hi Prateek 10:47:38 PM
sam marshall Tim had some concern about adding duplicate headings, which is bad for everyone (especially screenreader users) 10:48:56 PM
Amy Groshek 10:48:57 PM
sam marshall Like the general html guidelines look good but there were some changes that appeared to add duplicate headings for page names and stuff 10:49:23 PM
Prateek Sachan Hi Aparup 10:49:33 PM
Amy Groshek Sam, is there a link to Tim's concerns? 10:49:35 PM
Damyon Wiese Tims raised that about e.g. LTI where there is an activity name and then the LTI might have it's own heading 10:49:38 PM
Dan Poltawski we were looking at them 10:49:39 PM
Damyon Wiese which is a valid concern 10:49:46 PM
sam marshall probably but I don't know where Just doing this from memory 10:49:54 PM
David Mudrák sam for mod_page 10:49:58 PM
Amy Groshek I saw Tim's comment where it referred to SCORM 10:49:58 PM
sam marshall he didn't tell me to deputise for him or anything, sorry 10:50:04 PM
Martin Dougiamas Agreed that duplicate *headings" are bad 10:50:11 PM
Helen Foster Tim's concerns: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=242457 10:50:12 PM
Damyon Wiese yep scorm and LTI are the same situation 10:50:17 PM
Martin Dougiamas those two have "headings" inside the content areas, they are exceptions 10:50:39 PM
Amy Groshek It seemed like just a small change in presentation, something users could get used to and which we could hide with css if we really didn't want to change presentation for learners. 10:50:40 PM
Damyon Wiese so they need to be handled specially 10:50:43 PM
Martin Dougiamas . 10:50:54 PM
Petr Škoda double yay for somebody working on book! 10:51:02 PM
Martin Dougiamas There is still some duplication with navbar/headings, but I think that's very debatable as a good/bad thing 10:51:27 PM
Helen Foster book will be really good as shown in https://docs.moodle.org/dev/HTML_Guidelines - on the learnmoodle site it didn't look good at all with the book name missing 10:51:39 PM
Justin Filip Book is pretty terrible right now with a screen reader. 10:51:45 PM
Dan Poltawski Is there a 'screenreader solution' for those duplicate headings 10:52:06 PM
Amy Groshek I support changing headings for the sake of consistency. Theme developers might have a few minutes of work to do to adjust if maintaining existing look is imperative, but consistency is so important. 10:52:22 PM
Dan Poltawski where we could hide one (sounds horrible.. but if you look at the actual page) 10:52:23 PM
Damyon Wiese Why does it need special handling for screen readers? 10:52:36 PM
Martin Dougiamas Amy 10:52:39 PM
David Mudrák Jason, I hope it's still the theme having the full control over it, right? 10:52:45 PM
Dan Poltawski damyonw: when we've got the same text repeated twice 10:52:57 PM
Damyon Wiese It's the same issue for sighted users - so IMO we need to fix it for everyone 10:53:17 PM
sam marshall the problem for screenreaders is if they get things twice, it's annoying 10:53:21 PM
Dan Poltawski yes, its worse for screen readers though 10:53:30 PM
sam marshall worse than just seeing it twice 10:53:33 PM
Damyon Wiese (Im talking about the scorm/LTI headings) 10:53:41 PM
Dan Poltawski yeah, thats what Iw as trying to get at 10:53:43 PM
Dan Poltawski whats the link to the forum page 10:53:50 PM
Dan Poltawski let me find it 10:53:52 PM
Dan Poltawski http://qa.moodle.net/mod/forum/view.php?id=1 10:54:13 PM
Amy Groshek If we don't make heading hierarchy consistent, we screw with theming on *every page*. This is a per-module issue. 10:54:16 PM
Aparup Banerjee Petr Å koda: more book related work - https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=mod_klassenbuch 10:54:42 PM

sam marshall No problem with consistent, but maybe it should consistently not duplicate headers, instead of consistently duplicating them 10:54:50 PM
Jason Fowler Amy can you mention that on the forum discussion I linked to? 10:55:16 PM
Petr Škoda no JS fallback rule falls - mega party 10:55:36 PM

Eric Merrill Hopefully sam can talk about it 10:57:42 PM
sam marshall I can talk about it in here if you like, don't think I can get into hangout 10:57:55 PM
Jason Fowler lol, blame my wife for that - she told me my profile pic wasn't "professional" enough lol 10:57:55 PM
Andrew Nicols yeah - that's about a 30 second lag here 10:58:01 PM
Jason Fowler s/blame/thank/ 10:58:08 PM
danbennett over 1min here 10:58:08 PM
Dan Poltawski can someone get out of the hangout for sam to join? 10:58:25 PM
Petr Škoda congrats on the backup/restore issues! 10:58:38 PM
Jason Fowler there are only 5 of the slots full Dan 10:58:44 PM
Martin Dougiamas Anything else? 10:58:46 PM
sam marshall All I wanted to say about the backup/restore was basically - there are a bunch of changes in 2.6 I did to show progress in backup/restore, this should basically work, nobody needs to do anything in plugins particularly (unless you've done something strange). 10:58:47 PM
Eric Merrill And good progress reporting - works well on load balanced slots 10:58:49 PM
Jason Fowler and look at that, finishing on time it seems 10:59:08 PM
Justin Filip Yeah, lots of good stuff happening on backup & restore for 2.6. 10:59:12 PM
Aparup Banerjee 24/7 devchat! 10:59:19 PM

Eloy Lafuente 10:59:34 PM
Amy Groshek Were the proposed changes to JS coding standards covered? 10:59:39 PM
Dan Poltawski I keep meaning to ask - why have you started using backup? :P 10:59:40 PM
Andrew Nicols I've started discussing https://docs.moodle.org/dev/Javascript/Coding_style 10:59:42 PM
sam marshall sure I was glad they finally let me do it 10:59:43 PM
Amy Groshek Re: andrew? 10:59:51 PM

Justin Filip Backup issue -- https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-38189 11:00:04 PM
Justin Filip (meta) 11:00:12 PM
sam marshall dan - we've always used backup backend (not for backup, for e.g. copying course to new presentations). Just the issues got harder to bear. 11:00:18 PM
Andrew Nicols Major lag is present today 11:00:27 PM

Petr Škoda http://n00b/~stronk7 does not work either 11:02:45 PM
Jason Fowler ah, I hadn't thought of that 11:02:46 PM
Andrew Nicols Jason, that's part of the proposal and is discussed in both the forum thread, and the wiki 11:02:56 PM
Eloy Lafuente idiots 11:03:03 PM
David Mudrák really, YUI style next to MoodlePHP style lookes weird 11:03:08 PM
Jason Fowler lol 11:03:09 PM
Eloy Lafuente now i'm not going to paste the public one! lol 11:03:12 PM

sam marshall yay 11:03:33 PM
sam marshall (link works) 11:03:36 PM
Jason Fowler yeah, I would like to see us using camelCase throughout moodle, but I am just a HQ minion :P 11:03:40 PM
Eloy Lafuente another one 11:03:40 PM
Eloy Lafuente lol 11:03:41 PM
Justin Filip  ? sitecommit: 129ceb5 on demand release 2.5beta+ 11:03:57 PM
Jason Fowler anyway, I am getting up for work in 6 hours 11:03:59 PM
Justin Filip (From the "After" column) 11:04:03 PM
Jason Fowler so good night all 11:04:08 PM
David Mudrák good night 11:04:16 PM
Aparup Banerjee oh yea sleep 11:04:22 PM
Ankit Agarwal Night 11:04:26 PM
Aparup Banerjee good night everyone 11:04:27 PM
Andrew Nicols I'm essentailyl questioning that issue the best place to change from camelCase into moodle_case 11:04:27 PM
Andrew Nicols So please: views, feedback, etc. camelCase is the most contentious part, but not the only 11:04:46 PM
Dan Poltawski Note: camelcase in php is not under debate. 11:04:53 PM
Andrew Nicols Indeed - just in JS 11:05:15 PM
sam marshall heh I prefer camelCase as well, but really don't mind which one people decide on for JS guidelines. What version are these guidelines for, 2.6+? 11:05:22 PM
Dan Poltawski (you guys do enough refactoring already ;P) 11:05:23 PM
sam marshall or 2.7+? 11:05:32 PM
Andrew Nicols sam marshall: Once they're enforced, all new JS I presume 11:05:42 PM
Andrew Nicols We have a bit of a hodge-podge in existing JS in Moodle 11:05:50 PM
sam marshall OK 11:06:19 PM
Dan Poltawski (BTW I can't believe this is news to people, after posting in the gdf, this chat AND integration exposed ) 11:06:34 PM
Andrew Nicols and it's been tweeted 11:06:47 PM
Dan Poltawski you should be following integration exposed, people 11:06:52 PM
Justin Filip Dan: slam your fist on a table for emphasis! 11:07:07 PM
Dan Poltawski *slam* 11:07:15 PM
Andrew Nicols Andrew Nicols disappears. Please though, commetns and feedback on that issue 11:07:19 PM
Michael de Raadt What? A loud sound just woke me... 11:07:41 PM
Michael de Raadt I'm off to bed. Zzzzz. (wave) 11:07:55 PM
Dan Poltawski jfilip: 2.5beta+ = me an idiot 11:08:32 PM
Justin Filip Oh, yeah, I see that now in master. ;) 11:10:58 PM
Eloy Lafuente cya! 11:11:06 PM
Dan Poltawski http://git.moodle.org/gw?p=moodle.git;a=commit;h=34fb3545eae9315324351ee1076cd2f7ac67339c 11:12:19 PM
Moodle Bot http://github.com/moodle/moodle/commit/34fb3545eae9315324351ee1076cd2f7ac67339c - (Dan Poltawski) on demand release 2.6beta+ master. 11:12:19 PM
Eloy Lafuente lol 11:12:43 PM
Justin Filip Woo! 11:13:33 PM
Eloy Lafuente I'm going to revert that, rewriting history. Does not follow the commit rules at all! 11:13:37 PM
Eloy Lafuente (thanks dan) 11:13:46 PM
Dan Poltawski just jealous of jfilip 11:14:33 PM
Justin Filip Yeah, don't steal my thunder, Eloy! =) 11:14:49 PM
Eloy Lafuente haha 11:14:58 PM
Dan Poltawski (actually I assumed that eloy had messed up his site and he alerted me to the problem, so I suppose its equally shared) 11:16:23 PM
sam marshall sam marshall subscribes to 'integration exposed' 11:21:50 PM
Dan Poltawski note that Sam H has been doing lots of good work on automating the release process so such prizes are quite exclusive, perhaps never to be claimed again :D 11:24:04 PM
Justin Filip jfilip makes note to propose the "Dan owes me a beer" badge for moodle.org 11:26:08 PM
Dan Poltawski fine with me as long as I can award the badge 'Owes dan a beer' 11:26:54 PM
Eloy Lafuente it would be great to have a "owed beers badges generator" uhm... 11:26:55 PM
Justin Filip I think it only makes sense for it to be a two-way street, yeah. 11:27:16 PM
Dan Poltawski Dan Poltawski makes a note to request multiple badges awarded to same person 11:27:19 PM
Dan Poltawski of same type 11:27:34 PM
Eloy Lafuente you can issue different labels each time 11:27:43 PM
Justin Filip Badge multipliers. 11:27:44 PM
Eloy Lafuente 11:27:44 PM
Dan Poltawski the best thing is that you can't revoke a badge once its been issued 11:28:18 PM
Eloy Lafuente hehe 11:28:26 PM
Dan Poltawski so every time I see Tim, I'm sorted for the night 11:28:34 PM
Justin Filip "Congratulations, you have found a bug of +3 Dan owes you a beer." 11:28:51 PM
Dan Poltawski https://tracker.moodle.org/issues/?jql=assignee%20%3D%20timhunt%20and%20text%20~beer%20and%20Integrator%20%3D%20poltawski 11:30:36 PM
Dan Poltawski damnit, the beers are all from Eloy 11:31:23 PM
Eloy Lafuente I would not take that literally, lol. 11:33:29 PM
