Rogan, I agree, and we need people like you to serve as the translator for those of us who do not speak programming. When I see things like egStartup.go().then(), I feel like I’m back in Algebra 2. What I would like to do (and encourage others to do) is post issues here first because sometimes I am not sure if an issue is a bug, pilot error, or some kind of configuration problem. Once I am assured, by community members like you, that it is indeed a bug, I don’t mind posting to Launchpad. It is actually a pretty good process.

I know that the technical and front line staff seem to often speak different languages. I worked on the front line of libraries for two decades including as a circulation and reference manager as well as systems librarian. I now mostly do technical work. Many of the programmers have a very deep understanding of how libraries work. They may not know specific workflows but some have worked with libraries their entire career and know a lot even if they've never brought the book drop in on a cold morning (I don't miss that part at all). The developers I've gotten to know well in the community over the years love libraries and have made them their career. Those gaps should be bridged as much as possible as it really is one community.

I only use IRC to attend the Evergreen Oversight Board Meeting because that is the venue of choice for those meetings. Otherwise, I avoid it. I find it to be difficult to use, and it seems to lean more towards the programmer side of things. Launchpad, while a great tool, is similarly geared for the programming community. For library-speak, this list seems to be the best place. Now that we know there is an audience who wants to discuss Web Client issues in library-speak, our consortium will share more of its discoveries and issues here.

If I only complained at my library and never sent a help desk ticket to the IT department, it would be my own fault if nothing got fixed. There are, however, two sets of people working with Evergreen. The programmers and the end users. And we speak two different languages. I have looked at the IRC and it is programmer-speak, not library-speak. I would like more communication with end users in library-speak. Thanks for listening.

And I am not trying to stop people from discussing bugs on this or any other list. I think that's fine, too. It's just that Launchpad is the official record of the known bugs and feature requests, so if it is not on Launchpad, it is not on the RADAR. I hear that IRC is also a good place to discuss bugs or other issues. :) > > Scott
