I saw some emails about that demo, but I didn't know what it was about or where it was. midori: OBO-Edit with relationships inferred by the reasoner for regulation of xyz. jrichter: Ah. Too bad I missed that. I'm going to email him right now. midori: there's a stripped-down version of OBOL involved somewhere too, and intersection_of tags ... I kind of blanked on some of the techy details. 5:25 PM jrichter: Are we adding these to the GO then? Or is this just a research project for now. midori: More like research at the moment, but we'll add them to the go edit file fairly soon. hjd has joined the channel Alex_MGI has joined the channel 5:30 PM Alex_MGI: John, do you have any more bug reports? jrichter: I was just posting a comment about your latest bug report. Alex_MGI: I was thinking more of bugs that affect you in a personal way. karen-c has joined the channel jrichter: Ah! After some agonized writhing last night, I awoke refreshed and uninfected. What an awful and degrading mystery is the human body. midori: um, glad you're better, anyway MelissaH has joined the channel MelissaH: Hi there. Alex_MGI: Indeed! jrichter: Hey, everybody. jrichter: This is probably everyone who's going to show up. jrichter: I don't have much of an agenda. I just wanted to see how people felt about the new "quick fix" system in the verification plugin, and to hear any concerns from the WG posse. midori: Jane might be along in a minute ... just had an email from her. 5:35 PM jrichter: I also wanted to know what the managers thought about hiring a tech writer. midori: The GO PIs are going to discuss the tech writer at their next conf call, because of the budget implications. midori: (That may mean it's good-to-GO if the money can be found ...) Alex_MGI: Yes, perhaps a tech writer could also work on Amigo Docs and other GO related things. J-Lo has joined the channel jrichter: Did anyone get a chance to try the quick-fix stuff? J-Lo: yep jrichter: How do we feel about that solution to our various verification plugin problems from last week? J-Lo: perfect! karen-c: no, this bug I've got has really knocked me out and I haven't done anything with OBO-Edit at all Alex_MGI: I think I understand the paradigm now. Alex_MGI: (Another bug report!) 5:40 PM jrichter: I can write a quick-fix for any problem that the verification plugin can find, as long as there's a consistent, algorithmic way to implement it. So if you're getting a warning or an error that you'd like me to write a quick-fix for, let me know. midori: I've concentrated on the text editor (Amelia bequeathed it to me and Alex). Alex_MGI: I've not done much with it myself. jrichter: The idea is that some warnings and errors from the verification plugin have a little quick-fix button you can click that will present you with a list of automatic fixes. midori: Well, that sounds cool. MelissaH: just tried it. nice. jrichter: When you choose one, the fix is applied, the verification is re-run, and the fixed item should disappear from the list. jrichter: There are still some bugs. Alex_MGI: The settings are not persistent between restarts. jrichter: Which settings? Alex_MGI: The verification plugin settings; Midori already reported this I think. midori: Many settings -- see my bug report in SF 1593331. jrichter: I'll work on that today. jrichter: Has anyone noticed any major omissions in the documentation for the feature they're testing? (besides verification, I know that's missing) Alex_MGI: Also, in the report generated it looks like things are hyperlinked, but nothing happens when you click on something. midori: Not so far, but I'm nowhere near all the way through text editor testing. (Tho I imagine not much of that will have changed ... true?) jrichter: Alex: The hyperlinks only work when you run in manual mode. In Load, Save and Text Edit mode, the window is modal, so you can't do anything outside the window. MelissaH: the links work on a manual run, but not on the save run. 5:45 PM jrichter: Midori: Little has changed in the text editor. J-Lo: By the way John, we brought up the possibility of hiring a technical writer at the call yesterday - go-top are going to discuss it on their next call karen-c: haven't looked for docs for what I'm testing, will see if I can download now and check jrichter: A note about manual vs. other verification checks. Alex_MGI: Oh. MelissaH: need to add something about the fantastic new button added to the graphviewer. jrichter: If you save and get a bunch of warnings and errors, you can cancel the save, go to the verification plugin, and look at the latest report at your leisure. jrichter: (You're right, Melissa. Thanks) jrichter: That's all I've got. Any other issues? midori: Nothing from me that can't be covered in bug reports. J-Lo: obo2obo MelissaH: just tried that- it was an old verification from the previous ontology loaded- should you have to re run it? jrichter: ? midori: (of which I have submitted a few.) J-Lo: but we can discuss by email J-Lo: (it won't work for Mike C) 5:50 PM jrichter: Jane - maybe everyone else can head out so we can talk about that over IRC. J-Lo: okay midori: Shall I send a transcript of this part? jrichter: Melissa - the verification plugin always shows the results from the last verification run. So it's doing the right thing. jrichter: Yup. Bye everyone who isn't Jane. MelissaH: ok, bye.
