[Koha] LibLime and Koha Community

There are several aspects to the story.  Liblime developed a version
called Liblime Enterprise Koha (LEK) a couple of years ago; the features
in that version have not been generally released pending sponsor approval.

PTFS bought Liblime last year (when LEK was already in place).  In the
meantime, PTFS has developed a large number of features which were
publicly released a year ago and formed the basis of our Harley version.
Some but not all of those features have been integrated into version 3.2
and the upcoming version 3.4.

There are many local versions of Koha around the world, and LEK is one of
them.  We'd be happy to provide more information for you or anyone else on
your team.

I'm extremely new to the Koha Community and am trying to understand the
relationship between the Koha Community developers and LibLime and its
version of Koha.

Based upon what I have read, LibLime forked off of the primary Koha
community some time ago.  Are the changes being developed there also
being brought back into the open-source version of Koha?  Is everybody
working together so that database and software functionality is
consistent?  Or are these two versions slowly becoming more divergent
over time?

I hope I'm not kicking a hornet's nest here.  I'm just trying to get a
handle on how compatible these are and how to decide which version might
best meet our local needs.
