20111229

  • Wrote the migration handler lino.apps.dsbe.migrate.migrate_from_1_3_2() which sets the new build_time fields on existing data.
  • Added a new test “Overlapping contracts” to lino.apps.dsbe.models.Person.data_control(). On result is that the preview takes now quite some time and should be cached.

One surprise while working on the migration handler:

Problem installing fixture '/usr/local/django/dsbe_eupen/fixtures/d20111229.py': Traceback (most recent call last):

AttributeError: 'Lino' object has no attribute 'config'

Explanation: the dpy fixtures are of course executed before any the kernel setup has been done. That’s why there was no config object jetzt in the lino.Lino instance. And the site’s lino.models.SiteConfig.default_build_method has not yet been restored.

Solution: new configuration parameter lino.Lino.site_config_defaults. And instead of setting a config instance variable during kernel setup, we now have a property site_config which lazily calls get_site_config.
