SUBMISSIONS HERALDS: Pairing bug should now be fixed, unless there's more than one bug causing the same symptoms. Much thanks to Marta Brickbat, who kept triggering this bug through no fault of her own.

NOTIFICATION HERALDS: Thanks to Eirik Halfdarnson for pointing out an issue with marking items as issued as hardcopy. The issue meant that the items in question did not disappear from the list. That's been fixed. Pesky boolean logic statements.

Status update: OSCAR seems to have come through the dead drive OK ... at least through April. Anything since April may be missing, or not. It doesn't seem to be, but please check closely.

Some drives on the server have gone bad. This wouldn't be too much of an issue, but the backups seem to be corrupted. Please check to ensure that nothing important is missing.

Thanks to the West for tripping the pairing bug one more time. Yet again, there is a possibility that I've fixed it. Only time will tell.

From Laurel, regarding Laurel level commentary:

Laurel commenters are tasked with assisting Wreath, Pelican, and Laurel in making good decisions on approval or return of devices, based on SENA. Commentary that is secondary to the point at hand risks readers (including the aforementioned) losing the point - a signal-to-noise ratio problem. Sorting through long tangential discussions does take time, and if the point is mixed in there somewhere we spend additional time editing the discussion for clarity's sake. In the days of paper, comments were limited by necessity; while the monetary cost of commentary is now negligible, the time cost as it impacts the length of decision meetings has greatly increased.

I recently addressed this with the Principal Heralds, and it bears repeating here. While I have often said that you can use OSCAR for education, what I mean is that you can use it to review what people are saying and learn from that on both how to comment and how senior heralds are seeing things. Questions not specifically related to the registerability of the submission at hand should be taken offline from OSCAR - approach the person privately, or ask another herald for more information or clarification. This is more respectful of everyone's time.

The Northshield December 29 LoI has not disappeared - it was supposed to be an ILoI. After being notified, I moved it to the garden where it was supposed to be.

Submissions heralds: The pairing bug that I've been muttering about for months and months may now be fixed.

By Tanczos Istvan, 2013-08-09 21:00:22
SUBMISSIONS HERALDS: When typing in a new submission, the pairing pulldown will now change when you switch LoIs.

Notifications that Letters of Intent were issued appear to have been broken since June 30. They are (as I expect has been noticed) working again.
