[Koha] item type message about summary

Haven't been entering anything in this box - until now.  It looks like the changes only appear on the staff side, not in the OPAC. Interesting, but odd.

I understand the mention of a url to be a generic way to get any url that happens to be in an 856 $u to pop itself in at that point.  But if it's only showing up in the cataloging module, cui bono?
