I'll add something : in the 2.2 installer, there is a new feature that
the library can use (during install stage only) to select various files
to "import" into it's default database to get a 100% working Koha and
avoid lot of "standard tweakings".
In french UNIMARC, for example, we already hare the file for
"cataloguing monography", one for "cataloguing electronic document", one
for "french stopwords"... We may even have UNIMARC authority files.
Feel free to dump marc_*_structure tables, send them to me with some
comments (in what are they different from default 2.0.0 MARC21
parameters setup ?).
I'll try to add them to official 2.2 release.
