The bug 599 has been understood... It's due to inconsistencies in Koha
features : in MARC you can put barcode "mandatory" or "not mandatory".
BUT in non-MARC part of Koha, barcode IS MANDATORY.
If you set barcode = non mandatory in MARC parameters, your DB is broken
when you let barcode empty.
The question is : what is the good behaviour ?
* barcode IS mandatory => manage this in checker, the tools that checks
that your DB is correctly parametered.
* barcode IS NOT mandatory => change non-MARC part of Koha to accept
From a technical point of vue, both are simple.
My question is for librarians (& for our big "circulator", i mean chris,
if there is something i'm missing technically)
NOTE : we agree that a books without barcode can't be issued/returned,
aren't we ?
