- (2016-02-22, v:22.214.171.124) Book lookup error
(Bug report relayed from someone else) Description of issue: When clicking on the course title for certain classes, the upper box says "An unknown error has occured" rather than displaying book data or an actually helpful error. Business impact: Inability to look up books and similar assigned materials results in loss of revenue and data unavailability. Likely cause: Book data is not yet retrievable, which is a pretty known error if you ask me, and displaying "unknown error" is lazy and less usable Overall: -2/10, try harder
