Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "ReportTools" by BensonMargulies
Date Sun, 30 Dec 2012 00:17:15 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "ReportTools" page has been changed by BensonMargulies:


New page:
Every month, approximately one third of the projects must report. It's approximate because
new projects report monthly for a bit, and the number of projects is rarely zero mod three.

That is a lot of reports. The Foundation appreciates receiving the IPMC report:

 * promptly
 * in a consistent format
 * with an accurate summary of the state of the reporting podlings

To this end, there's a python program that consumes the data of the clutch and emits a report


Here's the usage message:

python3 --help
usage: [-h] [--push username password] [--month MONTH]

Create (and optionally push) a template for an incubator report.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --push username password
                        whether to push the report template.
  --month MONTH         the month to report for, defaults to current month.

Early in the month, the chair will use this:

{{{python3 --push WikiUsername WikiPassword}}}

The additional option is handy for use before the first of the month. This will replace the
current contents of the relevant 
wiki page with the report template. Caution: it does not warn before replacing; in case of
accident, use the wiki rollback feature.

If you leave off '--push' it will merely write the template into the file 'report.txt' where
you can look at it.

This reads the data from clutch.pkl, so always do an 'svn up' to get the latest before using
