Koha does barcodes, in the sense that keyboard wedge barcode scanners work a
treat.  We haven't needed to write any support for  other input devices, but
we'll cheerfully incorporate code from anybody who does.

Not to any particular depth.  New Zealand is (quite literally) at the ends
of the earth, and Internet links out of here are slow and expensive (at
least in comparison to the mainland US).  So we'd be less keen on moving our
CVS tree out of town, since it would probably mean slower access for our
programmers.  Having said that, sourceforge has lots of neat resources, and
it would mean that we could cut down on our data transfer costs if the Koha
site gets busy.  So we may well look at using sourceforge in the future.
