Welcome to the first Koha Community Project Day!

Do you have a Koha clean-up / dev / fun project in mind, that you never find time to work on? Koha Community Project Day is your chance to finally get around to it!

You can also work on anything community-related if you don't have a specific project in mind, including testing/sign-offs, patch submitting and documentation.

When: Friday, 26 July 2019, whatever timezone you are in

Project title Description Progess summary Volunteers
Example Project Example Description Progress... Everyone
Plugin catalogue Using Koha to inventory all the Koha plugins available Nothing so far...

To be done :

  • Install Koha
  • Configure Koha
  • Determine what MARC fields to use (maybe Heather H., marc whiz, could help me with this?)
  • Catalogue plugins (so far I have received those from inLibro, ByWater, BibLibre and Libriotech)
  • Make catalogue available on community Website
  • Set up instructions for future catalogers
  • Set up alerts on github for new plugins (not sure it is possible), or google alert?

Caroline for initial Koha configuration and cataloguing. Anyone interested afterwards. Send me an email (caroline.cyr-la-rose@inlibro.com) or a @later on irc (caroline_catlady) if you have plugins you would like to have added to the catalogue, or if you would like to help maintaining the catalogue.

Sher Afzal Khan for Koha Installation, configurations, OPAC designing, HTML, Koha Administrating, IPs seating, cataloging methods, for quarries and help please contact kohapaksitan@gmail.com.
