  • Piotr added new option for Lesson Publication Consent field.
  • Piotr added "Chemistry" for auto-scoring mechanism for the Instructor Training Request.
  • Piotr implemented a big project called Three Workshop Request Forms.
  • on top of that changes, Piotr changed Training Request form to work better with people who tend to forget to provide registration code.

  • Fran├žois fixed sysadmin email address (for error messages).
  • Piotr added lesson publication consent field displayed in user's profile after logging in.
  • Piotr replaced troublesome Django-Autocomplete-Light with much better (so far) Django-Select2 in his quest to use best autocompletion for AMY.
