The items.reserves field in Koha is not working. It does not tally the total number of holds. I have checked several libraries with books that are usually on hold an all do not have any holds in the total ... at all.

Did this ever work? This sounds like it is an enhancement request, although I wouldn't think an item-level count of holds would be useful unless you also required item-level holds all the time.
Hm, maybe we could use it to count how many holds a specific item has filled - it might be interesting to see.
items.reserves shows on the koha-to-marc mapping, and is also documented in https://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Holdings_data_fields_(9xx)
For the sake of supportability, I would like to see this either fully implemented or removed.

I would like to see this implemented. Doesn't make sense to keep running totals of checkouts and renewals and not reserves.
I guess we need to start with, what counts?
Personally, I want to know every hold, whether cancelled or filled. Some might want only filled, and others might say only those that have been picked up. I say all combinations should be a preference, but all should be an option for the tally.
Logistically, it would be easiest to add to the tally at the time of creation for all holds placed. But for only filled holds or picked up holds to be tallied, that would probably need to be added at the time of fulfillment, or at time of pickup, and not at the time of creation.
