Usability fix to MARC importing:
When importing biblios using the MARC importing tools, the list of imported MARC records are display in pages of 25 biblios each. This means on larger imports (100s or 1000s of biblios) you have to page through way too many pages to find import issues. This process can be facilitated by returning much larger lists. We have changed this to 500 entries and its much easier to work with large imports with this size of returned results.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a MARC import file with 1000 unique MARC records
2. Upload the file
3. Import the file to the reservoir.
4. You are now looking at the import results page displayed by manage-marc-import.pl with 25 results displayed, and a total of 40 pages to view to see all the import success/failures.
Reviewing all these pages is tedious. Less pages will be much better.
Fixing this is a one line change to
library:/usr/share/koha/intranet/cgi-bin/tools# diff tools/manage-marc-import.pl*
< my $results_per_page = $input->param('results_per_page') || 25;
> my $results_per_page = $input->param('results_per_page') || 500;
(This was also the consensus of the Cataloging roundtable at KohaCon2013. I volunteered to submit the bug and a formal fix.)

Patch to increase size of results list for manage-marc-import page
There's a nicer fix for this in bug 10558 that uses Datatables and Ajax to dynamically load the content. I'de love to see that patch go in in preference to this... though this is a pretty good quick fix.
