Dear all/Koha users,
Contribution Closed Since Target Achieved
As you know at present by default all the category of patrons can either place purchase suggestions or not via opac but many educational institutes only allow purchase suggestion by the faculty or some specific category of users. Similarly in public and other libraries children’s may not be allowed for purchase suggestions or lower level of non technical/teaching staffs in special libraries. Hence this restriction is very much needed which is applicable for all libraries globally. As per discussion and email one of the leading Koha supporter/Developer L2C2 from India (http://www.l2c2.co.in/) is ready to develop the said feature and the charge would be only Rs. 20000/- (Approx USD 280). Hence i am ready to pay Rs. 5000 and expecting some more contributors with a minimum of Rs. 1000. Kindly give your details through google form if you are willing to be part of this voluntary support.
The detail of the bug which i filed in 2012 are available at Koha bugzilla
The payment can be send to:
BANK : Indian Bank
BRANCH : Salt Lake, Kolkata 700 064.
ACCOUNT NAME : L2C2 TECHNOLOGIES
ACCOUNT NO. : 701825211
ACCOUNT TYPE : CURRENT
IFS CODE : IDIB000S147
MICR NO. : 700019033
BANK PHONE : (033)-2321-0284 / 2321-5814 / 98312-53399
Further as per email by L2C2 following points may be noted:
- The co-sponsors names would be including in the text for release notes and also in the bugzilla report.
- Also, it is not possible to give any definitive time line by which time the code would be accepted into Koha. If it runs into a blocker bug, it may take time, sometimes up to a couple of years. However, it being Feb 2018 now, if the funding can be completed within the next 10 days, chances are that the feature may be included in the
next release i.e. 18.05 in May.2018.
- On production of payment proof of more than Rs. 5000 receipt will be send by speed post.
