Hi Cindy

The renewal information in the statistics table is more complete than
using the lastrenewate, all it is missing is the branch info. So I
would follow Owens suggestion for amending the report so it does a
left join and groups the renewals together under a null branch code.

If I remember correctly, the bug with renewals is limited only to
those renewed from the OPAC, and the sticking point for the fix is
what branch to store, since they aren't really renewing them from
anywhere. I think the consensus was to use the borrowers homebranch.

If people think this is a good enough fix, I could do a patch to get
that being stored and submit it for sign off today. I'm assuming the
PTFS fork pulls in code from actual Koha from time to time? If so,
they should be able to apply that fix there too.
