[Koha] Migrate checkouts with koc file

Hi Tasha,

the format should still work as described on the wiki:


It really is just a text file with a specific header, as you say.

An advantage for migrations is that it works with cardnumbers and
barcodes, a disadvantage is that you can't set the due dates. They will
be calculated from the circulation rules when the transactions are
uploaded to Koha.

Hope this helps,
