---- Reported by frederic@tamil.fr 2009-06-14 04:50:39 ----

This combination of parameters is not possible in rebuild_zebra.pl:

    rebuild_zebra -a -x

Why? Koha API has a GetAuthorityXML function that could be used.

---- Additional Comments From gmcharlt@gmail.com 2009-06-14 23:33:09 ----

It's due to a difference in how the Zebra GRS-1 and DOM filters process MARCXML files.  The GRS-1 filter doesn't require that a MARCXML input file be a well-formed XML document, so rebuild_zebra -b -x can simply append one <marc:record> blob after another to the export file.  The DOM filter (used for MARC21 authorities) *does* require that its input be a valid XML document, which would require tweaking the export so that the resulting XML file was valid (and the marc:record elements contained in a marc:collection).

XML::SAX::Writer and possibly a small tweak to the indexing XSL would do it.  On the other hand, it would also be necessary to verify that the GRS-1 filter (for bibs) *does* load a well-formed bib MARCXML file.

Probably not a huge deal to change, but it does require a bit of work and a lot of testing.
