Description Nicole C. Engard 2011-12-12 16:52:58 UTC
The preference says 'If this is off, please ask your administrator to enable the merge_authorities.pl cronjob. '

According to http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=6094 the cron isn't required anymore also there is no merge_authorities in the cronjob dir. There is, however, a merge_authority.pl script in the koha bin dir.

I think the note needs to be removed from the preference unless there is a reason that it's still there.

this typo has now been fixed

 There is, however, a merge_authority.pl script in the koha bin

hmm, i looked at BZ6094's patches, and can confirm that 'merge_authority.pl' cron is still required
