[Koha] Ideas wanted for cataloging QA utilities

Hi Tasha

If you need to do "real time" checking/validation , you need to use
JQuery/Javascript to insert code at the data input capture field, similar
as when you enable fields prefill. You will need to add specific code for
each field you want to validate.

An option would be to have a cron that runs a field validator script that
issues an error/issues report on a periodic basis. I guess this will be
easier to maintain/update but will need to have someone correct/edit issues

Not sure it would be possible to combine those options in a way that the
JQuery could run the validation script during field input.
