Description Chris Cormack 2010-05-21 00:47:35 UTC

---- Reported by oleonard@myacpl.org 2008-05-31 11:59:00 ----

Accounts.pm relies on matching letter codes to hard-coded descriptions:

    if ( $type eq 'N' ) {
        $desc .= " New Card";

These descriptions are concatenated by the script with user-generated descriptions (hence http://bugs.koha.org/cgi-bin/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=2183). I don't know enough about fines management to know if it's possible, but the obvious answer here would be to use authorized values.

Yep, this is a good one, but I'm gonna delay it for rel_3_2, we've got bigger fish to fry

This bug hasn't been touched in nearly a year, please revisit and test and close if appropriate.

Confirmed that this code still exists in Accounts.pm.
