Koha Development Roadmap

By pate, Section Software
Posted on Sat Apr 19th, 2003 at 04:05:21 PM EST

I'm starting to develop a roadmap for the post 2.0 development of Koha, and I'd like to take this opportunity to see where the various free ILS projects can share resources. Please take a look and see

  • what we're doing that you can benefit from
  • what you're doing that we can benefit from
  • where we can work together to benefit both projects
  • things that we should be doing that we're not


You can see our wiki page at http://www.saas.nsw.edu.au/wiki/index.php?page=NewKohaRoadmap. After you've had a chance to read through it, please feel free to add comments there, or talk about it here. I'm really interested in hearing what the wider library/hacker community thinks.

a few questions (3.00 / 1) (#2)

Thanks for the link! A few questions:

First, I'm a little confused by your branch 'names' and their correspondingly planned numbers. I get "legacy" as 1.*, and 2.0.* as "stable", but shouldn't "development" be 2.1.*, not 2.2.*? If that's what you meant in the tables with the Xs and Ys and AAs then maybe you could make the meanings of those symbols more explicit?

Second, it would be good to know what your plan for API stability is. Are all 2.* releases going to be API-compatible (I guess that would mean datamodel-compatible, too) with 2.0? If so, how does that jive with refactoring at 2.2, and modularizing work at 2.4?

Sorry to be so out of touch with the development plans and your reasoning, I had to drop off of koha-devel from overload. :(

Looks Good (2.00 / 1) (#1)

I have done a lot of work with mapping XML to RDBMS layouts, I can probably give a hand with adding an XML layer if you want to go the Web Services route. Adding support for holdings records and something for FRBR might be good ideas as well. Is there record locking or any kind of transaction support in koha? That might be pretty critical for a large or busy site.

Reserves Module (none / 0) (#3)

I don't know of the current necessity of a reserves module in Koha, since I'm not sure if any of the userbase are academic libraries, but if there is a need, I will be releasing a MySQL port of course/control probably around June/July. It would be fairly trivial (I mean, in comparison to commercial ILSs) to create an interface in course/control that manipulates the holdings and circ rules in Koha. I suppose it gets rather "chicken or the egg", there's no need for a reserves module if academic libraries aren't using Koha, but then again, academic libraries probably wouldn't use it without a reserves module, so it'd have to be there, anyway.
