Description Tomás Cohen Arazi 2015-03-25 19:04:26 UTC
The routine should be using C4::Overdues::_get_chargeable_units instead of an ad-hoc calculation of the overdue days to use as basis for the calculatio here:


    my $calendar = Koha::Calendar->new( branchcode => $branchcode );

    # $deltadays is a DateTime::Duration object
    my $deltadays = $calendar->days_between( $dt_due, $dt_today );

To reproduce:
- Set finesCalendar = "directly"
- Have a circulation rule stating:
  interval for calculating fines = 1
  suspension days = 3
- Have the calendar set for sunday and saturday as holidays.
- Checkout an item with a branch/itype/borrower category that matches the defined circ rule with a hand-writen due date to (say) last friday.
- Check the item in
=> FAIL: Notice that the user is debarred using the calendar (skipping saturday and sunday).

[PASSED QA] Bug 13909: Suspension days calculation should respect finesCalendar

This patch make _debar_user_on_return respect the finesCalendar syspref.

It does so, by replacing the ad-hoc overdue days calculation in favor of
C4::Overdues::_get_chargeable_units (which is renamed C4::Overdues::get_chargeable_units
and exported). There's no behaviour change besides making the calculation simpler
and correct.

To test:
- Set finesCalendar = "directly"
- Have a circulation rule stating:
  interval for calculating fines = 1
  suspension days = 3
- Have the calendar set for sunday and saturday as holidays.
- Checkout an item with a branch/itype/borrower category that matches the defined circ rule with a hand-writen due date to (say) last friday.
- Check the item in
=> FAIL: Notice that the user is debarred using the calendar (skipping saturday and sunday).
- Apply the patch
- Repeat the previous steps
=> SUCCESS: calculation is correct (counting saturday and sunday as overdue days, i.e. 'directly').
- Set finesCalendar = "calendar"
- Repeat the test
=> SUCCESS: calculation is correct (skipping holidays).
- Sign off.

Hello in Koha 3.20 Suspentions fails when loan by hours

See http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=14293

The solution:

$finedays = $finedays * 24 if ( $unit eq 'hours' );
