Dear all

I write this mail because we wish to share this issue with you and ask you
If you have had similar experiences

We have upgraded a koha 3.6.1 to 3.8.5 with success no error messages, no
where however we have found some strange behaviour in the Zebra index..

If we upgrade koha and configure zebra for using DOM, some records are
missing, although they are in the mysql (we have seen the bugzilla and we
have applied it , and some records appears but we do not rely completly on
this index, we fear that some records are still missing... a search in
3.8.5 and 3.6.1 gives different number of results and we do not know if
this happens becasue of the change of indexing in DOM or because there are
still lmissing records.... however the subject search it matachs 100% both

If we upgrade koha and condigure grs1 we get the exact result list in 3.6.1
and 3.8.5 but all the records are empty, with no data...  (no error logs
nowhere), koha 3.8.5 gives 13 ersults... and is list them with no data...
 (we have reindexed them with -x and without -x) we suspect perhaps some
kind of character problem indexing......

Now we're going to maka a fresh install instead of a upgrade and check the
behaviour of zebra results...

Anybody has experienced a similar behaviour? we're going tin make a fresh
install of Koha 3.8.5 and transfer the database and check it in order to
compare both index (the upgraded and fresh install)
