Thank you very much for your disponibilité (which is a rather nice word in
Italian and French that unhappily hardly exists any longer in English as
disponibility, though one can find it in the OED).  I spoke with my director
today, and we're committed to getting our changes (the very few changes
we've made) into Koha in the hopes of making some small contribution.  I
won't be able to start working on it, unfortunately, before the end of

The extent of the changes we've made, outside of some edits for OPAC's xslt
so that it displays a few fields that are of interest to us (something I
immagine that isn't very interesting for everyone else), are to the plugins
for the Leader and 008 for biblio and authorities
in order to permit various possibilities in MARC that weren't available
through the plugins.

Given all this, it seems to me like the 1st option you suggested is probably
a bit much (at least if you don't tell me otherwise).  At the same time,
I've been asking myself if these few changes we've made haven't already been
anticipated between 3.01 and 3.03 or even more recently; would you have any
idea about this?

En tout cas, je vous remercie humblement.
