Dear List

I hope this find you well.

I am excited to join the Koha sphere!

I am writing from Munich (Germany) and joined the list yesterday in view of the task ahead - creating a new catalogue for our institute library. I have little experience and need all the help I can get. Luckily I am not alone in the endeavour: our IT team have set up the Linux server and I will be able to involve professional help when migrating our old Allegro-C records into Koha.

Still, some things I would like to do myself but progress instantly fell flat because I could not define patron categories in Koha version I noticed that I am not alone in this predicament (Bugzilla Bug 17069), and read that a solution may be forthcoming after November. I wonder what I should do now. Should I just proceed as the database administrative user, or will that limit what I can do with the programme? Or is there a fix? Benjamin Rokseth proposed one (Bugzilla Bug 17069 Comment 1) but I am unable to replicate this. Did I miss any other easy solution?

Thanks for reading this and best wishes from the Octoberfest
