Will this run OK on the redhat distro?
ended up with the server package... love the 90 day phone support aspect.

> I've generated a short TODO list for adding MARC support to Koha below.
> I've also checked most of my files into CVS now. I've placed most of them
> in the koha/marc/ subdirectory, but the koha/C4/Catalogue.pm file is also
> required to convert existing koha records to marc format.
> Please do not use any of this on production systems yet!
> TODO list
> 1. Finish cataloguing api (Catalogue.pm)
> 2. Modify existing code to use the new cataloguing api
> a. start with all write routines
> b. then all read routines
> 3. Polish up MARC editor. Must include some sanity checks to prevent
> modifications with the MARC editor rendering the data unusable by
> a. don't delete the barcode, warning before modifying barcode
> b. don't mess up linkages between 852 and 876 tags
> c. Home branch and holding branch info should require warnings before
> d. others?
> 4. Need to create some indexes of the MARC data to aid in searches.
> Soundex searches would be nice.
> a. subject index
> b. title index
> c. author index
> d. dewey index
> e. itemtype index
> f. soundex indexes would require an index with 1 word in each record.
> For example, a book with the title "The Habitat and Lifestyle of the
> Elephant" would have entries for "Habitat", "Lifestyle" and
> "Elephant" all pointing to the book's record. An sql query like
> "select Record_ID from soundex_index where soundex(word) like
> soundex('elefant')" would return a point to "The Habitat and
> Lifestyle of the Elephant". (Personally, I think this is pretty
> silly, but I had some librarians ask for it, and it isn't overly
> difficult to implement). Soundex searches should be configurable as
> an option somewhere. For example, have a special interface for young
> children where they just type in a word and hit enter and soundex
> searches are used, but normal searches do not use soundex. It would
> be annoying for titles with the words 'Rode' and 'Road' to show up
> when you search for 'Rhode', for example.
> 5. A million other things, probably...
