    Hi, OpenSpending gurus
    We're developing an Open Fiscal Data Package conversion script for public universities, but are facing a technical problem and need some help
    I've tried the forums, but they won't allow me to post anything (¿?), so here I am...

    This is a date field as defined in the JSON file. As you can see, we specify the format
    And here is the error we get when applying the JSON to our CSV in the online OS Packager:

    As you can see, it seems to be ignoring the "format" information, and tries to apply a different date mask than the one we specify in the JSON
    We are not able to deal with this. Can anybody lend us a hand?
    Thanks!

    @akariv I'm trying to spot the exact point where the failure happens, but I'm not sure which is the correct repo, is it https://github.com/openspending/dataflows-openspending ?

    OK: I've just discovered it's a known (and still unsolved) bug... :-(

    Hey @jjalcolea - if you’d like, we can get on a call sometime next week so you can explain to me what you’re trying to do and I can guide you through the openspending codebase and how to best use it for your needs.

    Thanks @akariv , I was just trying to isolate where the bug occurs in the code to better inform the bug report and facilitate the diagnosis; for the moment we don't have the resources to get involved in development; we're just users of the tools at openspending.org

    I'm getting a CORS error when trying to upload something using packager
    I'm doing some training next week for our Treasury to load data using Packager so I'm just checking everything's working
    in the meantime I'll get a pipelines repo up and running as a fallback way of adding datasets
    I think Lorena and Adam said the new upload interface is live but I haven't found an announcement - is that available to try and use yet?

    @tlacoyodefrijol could you also add https://github.com/vulekamali/os-source-specs#vulekamali to os-data-importers? Not sure if the current pipeline in that branch works, but it's the start of having our own pipelines in there

    @jbothma
    Packager seems to be working fine now - who knows what happened earlier
    would still be good to get our os-source-specs repo added though

    @jjalcolea
    Agh... so, is it impossible right now to upload packages in OpenSpending? Hope this gets fixed soon, we are also advocating in public institutions for the platform in Spain...

    @jbothma
    it seems to be working actually https://imgur.com/a5FVraq.png
    so far so good...
    will let you know when it's complete

    @jjalcolea
    Great, thanks for the info, @jbothma !

    Hello @all
    I newer on this platform. I 'm looking if there is such a certification over Openspending
    How can I get trained and evaluated ?

    @akariv I have a dataset that seems to have gotten stuck while uploading the the DB - its name is "test Data Estimates of National Expenditure of South Africa 2018-19..."
    Might have made some typos while uploading
    it was uploaded by Tabo Maleba
    sorry Thabo *
    We're busy with some training today and last day tomorrow
    JD Bothma
    @jbothma
    It's stuck on 5.26 %

    @jbothma
    Any chance I can get https://github.com/vulekamali/os-source-specs#vulekamali added? I'm having trouble uploading a 280MB CSV using packager - probably my flaky connection
    JD Bothma
    @jbothma
    Got a 403 from S3 when uploading? https://i.imgur.com/fb23jmx.png
    @akariv are you around?

    @jbothma
    I wonder if the parens or plusses in the name affect it
    this is better - now I jus get UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0x92 in position 1709: invalid start byte which I should be able to fix

    It blows my mind that excel has or doesn't have "CSV UTF-8" option depending on the license

    hey guys, do I really need a google account to use openspending?
    jjalcolea
    @jjalcolea
    @gerbsen_twitter As far as I know, yes. It surprised me too...

    Hi folks, did you end up publishing the Argentine budget data? @akariv

    Hi team! Is anyone from the openspending infosec/security team able to shoot me a message?
