The main parameters for holds should be part of the circulation rules generally in the branch/patron/item type equation (smart-rules).
Number of Holds allowed: how many holds allowed for each branch/patron/item combination from 0 (no holds allowed) to x
ReservesMaxPickUpDelay: from 1 to x
A couple extra enhancements to circ/waitingreserves.pl too:
ability (filter) to see only those holds that are over
ability to “select all” and thus “cancel all” holds in the page (i.e. all “Holds Over”)
ability to “print” the page for a clean listing of holds over
Many of these are being handled in the Holds Rewrite: http://bugs.koha-community.org/bugzilla3/show_bug.cgi?id=5609 I think we should close this and then refer to that bug and break each preference moved to the matrix out to its own bug report.
