To do this, we need to know which versions of the modules work with Koha
(URLs preferred, as IIRC some are not on CPAN), get the modules into
debian (I will sponsor if needed - IAADD) and then get Koha packaged and
- Who has a working Koha rel_2_6 or rel_3_0 and will list the module
- Who will help make the debs?

It wouldn't be packaged or play nice with the package systems, which
already solve a lot of the problems. Including the source of modules
will leave us making something more like a distribution than an
application and the release management is even more complicated.
I'm convinced that the best approach for koha installation is to make
koha look a lot more like the typical perl modules+scripts packages that
you find on CPAN, probably with a collection of data ready to load from
the web interface the first time that it is run. The first steps are
above. After that, it's some ExtUtils::MakeMaker and some new system
parameters pages for loading the sample data.
