Hi Jo

I have seen patches, and I am sure more will continue to be sent. From what I can tell this is a localised version for use in spanish and all generic changes coming back. So it looks to me like we only have the one fork.

Another point is forks aren't inherently bad, the license allows it and if it makes sense I see no problem with it. What is bad is not renaming when you fork and confusing everyone.

Sent from my Android phone with K-9 Mail. Please excuse my brevity.

Dear all,


As we promise is now available for download the first release of Kobli 1.4 rc1, based on Koha 3.4.


 Kobli 1.4, released in two versions: a version to install from scratch, and once as a VMware virtual appliance for immediate installation in the Cloud.


The both packages can be retrieved from  http://kobli.bage.es/?page_id=22 


The website of the Kobli community is http://kobli.bage.es, which provides complete information of the project.

Dear all,

I am Domingo Arroyo and I work for the Library Area in the Spanish Ministry of Culture. 

We have been working in order to make an ILS available to libraries of the Central Government. 

Last year we evaluated Koha as a possible solution (More information in our repository http://hdl.handle.net/10421/4711 ) and we started the KOHA customization for our libraries with MASmedios (a Spanish company) 


Our customization and development is focused on:


-           Spanish (bd content, templates, etc.)

-           Basic features in cataloguing (indicators, 008 and 006 tags..) 

-           Translator manager

-           Bugs solution 

-           Css and styles 

-           Installation (in order to make easier the installation process for individual libraries)

-           Digital repository add-on.


We are involved in Koha community developing (basic features and Bugs solutions ) for future versions of Koha and testing.


We have made a “customized version” and we have named it Kobli (Koha + biblioteca) and it will be available for libraries of the Central Government, and any other one, in a short time. This year at least five Central Government libraries are going to migrate to Koha-Kobli.


We want to continue our work in Koha and our Kobli, so I hope you’ll find it interesting and valuable. We are keeping you informed about this project. If you want more information, please contact with:
