[09:18:30 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> fluid-everyone jessm anastasiac For work on the IDRC website, it would be nice to be able to file jiras if need be. The question is: should we create an IDRC project or file jiras under the existing IDI project. Thoughts?

[09:23:12 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> Justin_o michelled too For work on the IDRC website, it would be nice to be able to file jiras if need be. The question is: should we create an IDRC project or file jiras under the existing IDI project. Thoughts?

[09:23:13 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> heidiv, michelled and I just chatted about your question. It seems reasonable to file IDRC-related issues as part of the IDI project.

[09:23:32 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> i think so too anastasiac , esp since there won't be too many i don't think

[09:23:42 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> right

[09:23:59 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> and IDRC is under IDI

[09:24:04 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> exactly

[09:24:22 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> thanks (smile)

[09:24:28 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> heidiv and michelled, we didn't have our Floe check-in yesterday - shall we do it today?

[09:24:38 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> sure

[09:25:19 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> heidiv, we'll ping you in Skype in a minute?

[09:25:26 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> sounds good

[09:47:21 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> anastasiac i could see the benefit of having an accessible theme library.

[09:47:31 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> michelled, heidiv is asking about whether the new idrc wp theme should have its own github repo, or live in the idrc wp instance itself

[09:47:39 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> even tho idi-theme and idrc-theme would require significant tweaking to personalize it

[09:47:46 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> I'm trying to recall the reasoning for separating the idi theme out from the idi wp instance

[09:48:04 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> the other difference is that idi-theme has much of its content in the templates vs. db…. should idrc do the same?

[09:48:10 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> do you recall, michelled, and do you have thoughts on the idrc site

[09:48:33 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> I expect much of the idrc site will NOT be in the theme, but will be editable through the admin interface

[09:48:39 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> joomla content moved in templates would be crazy...

[09:48:45 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> ya

[09:49:11 CST(-0600)] <michelled> the idi theme extends the uio theme, right?

[09:49:24 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> yeah, idrc theme will do the same

[09:49:50 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> colinclark do you recall why we separated idi-theme into its own repo vs. it living within the inclusivedesign.ca repo

[09:50:04 CST(-0600)] <michelled> I'm not understanding the alternative to creating an idrc theme - what are you proposing?

[09:50:38 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> michelled we're wondering where the idrc-theme should live in github: in its own repo or within idrc.ocad.ca repo

[09:50:53 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> right now idi-theme for inclusivedesign.ca are separate repos

[09:51:43 CST(-0600)] <michelled> heidiv: it seems to me that it would be more reusable if it's in its own repo - is there something I'm missing?

[09:53:19 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> I think a separate repo is probably the way to go, I just wanted to double-check that there aren't some factors I might not be considering

[09:53:33 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> michelled it would be more explicitly available in its own repo.

[09:54:29 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> anastasiac that seems like the most flexible / consistent way to go

[09:54:52 CST(-0600)] <anastasiac> sounds good to me, heidiv

[09:55:22 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> perhaps we would someday like to promote these themes as accessible wp themes available for others to use, and having them sep would clarify that

[10:28:51 CST(-0600)] <greggy> heidiv: I just got your pull request idrc.ocad.ca project. Not sure why it came to me.

[10:30:07 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> groggy ah, ok. ignore for now (smile) once the idrc-theme is ready for that install, will get someone to pull both in.

[10:30:12 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> ^ greggy

[10:30:19 CST(-0600)] <greggy> I might suggest creating new project, if you are replacing the whole IDRC site with Wordpress

[10:30:39 CST(-0600)] <heidiv> anastasiac ^ thoughts ?

[10:41:34 CST(-0600)] <jhung> Yura, I will take a look at Dewarp later tonight.

[10:41:34 CST(-0600)] <jhung> ^yura1

[13:02:46 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung, yura: there don't seem to be any instructions on how to use the colour picker

[13:03:05 CST(-0600)] <yura> hmm

[13:23:13 CST(-0600)] <jhung> Yura: instructions should be on the UI. Unfortunately I have't taken a look at the new UI yet. Hold on...

[13:23:46 CST(-0600)] <jhung> justin_o: does your repo have yura's changes?

[13:23:57 CST(-0600)] <Justin_o> jhung: it should

[13:24:19 CST(-0600)] <jhung> ok. thanks.

[13:34:39 CST(-0600)] <jhung> justin_o, yura: the "Pick Color" disabled text color is different than the rest, but I can't see where it is specified. Any idea?

[13:35:32 CST(-0600)] <yura> jhung: it must be one of the shared styles

[13:35:37 CST(-0600)] <yura> i dont tihnk i use any custom colors

[18:38:17 CST(-0600)] <thealphanerd> does anyone have a particular way they mannage their mailing lists?

[18:38:23 CST(-0600)] <thealphanerd> ping Bosmon2
