As mentioned in the listserv message, that list is for LibLime customers
only.  It is not an attempt to be secretive or proprietary, it’s just the
best method for us to communicate with our customers and for them to
communicate with each other.  LibLime staff and customers regularly
participate on the Koha listservs, including postings as recently as this
week.  You may not recognize the names as being LibLime customers, but they
are present and participating.

As is well known by now, there are differences between the software used on
our client systems and the current development head of Koha.  We have
submitted many features (others are awaiting sponsor approval) and continue
to work towards and hope for full integration between the code lines.

We would be happy to talk to you directly about your needs, or put you in
touch with some of our customers if you want.

Hello, all. I have been following the discourse about LibLime on here with
interest, as we will be searching a vendor for our selected system (which is
Koha, of course). However, I had read little from those who actually use
LibLime as a vendor. Since there are so many out there I assumed I was
missing something.

On a recent visit to a library consortium in Texas that uses LibLime, the
director of that system told me about a LibLime listserv. Figuring I might
receive different information from that list (and thus allowing me to pass
on pros and cons to our director, instead of just cons), I attempted to sign
on to the list, only to receive the the below rejection notice. So much for
"open source". Why the secretive approach if the system is not proprietary?

But, I'm still seeking information on PTFS/LibLime. So, if there are any
customers of this vendor lurking out there, I would love to hear from you,
either pro or con. You may email me off list if you are more comfortable
with that. My email is storypage [at] gmail.com.

Thanks in advance,
--Jim Maroon
