[LON-CAPA-users] Collaboration tag?
Mon, 30 Jul 2007 20:12:10 -0400
OK, sounds good. I dropped some votes on that bug. I would also add (but I
can't figure out how to add!)
a) I would think a lot of people are trying to implement Workshop Physics /
PhysicsbyInquiry / RealTime physics or a flavor of one of these. They
certainly had a lot of attendees at their workshops at AAPT this week.
Seemed like everyone I talked to seemed to know about them and either use
their stuff or "plan to" use it.
b) Bubba doesn't know that Helga is the one he should bother. He has to
come to me (CC) and I track it down. Each lab Bubba is assigned a new lab
partner, so he can't remember who his partner was on that particular lab.

Currently no. This only works for problems where it is being hand
(The bug requesting this feature to be extended to other problem types
would be http://bugs.loncapa.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1673 )

Nope. He has to bother Helga as of right now.

Always the possiblity.
Let me take a look at what it'd entail.
