Tangenting from this thread: https://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=2799427 -- would there be any usefulness out there for a function to copy a selected biblio record.
I am thinking that in the the bibio_view screen there would be an additional menu link that would go to the biblio_new_form.php and fill in the information from the biblio record it was called from.
Problems / comments?
I for one would love to see it added. In fact have considered doing it for myself, but laziness, etc has always prevailed!
Peter Leschev wrote code to do this over a year ago, and we still haven't integrated it. It's in the patch tracker. It's partly my fault (I am really strapped for time), but I also would like Dave's approval on new features before I check them in. He is also strapped for time. The two combined mean that we have useful contributions that are just sitting stagnant in the trackers. It's a sad thing, and I think it discourages would-be contributers from even trying.
Looked at it... works fine so far in 0.5.0... I'll raise it in the next developers meeting to see if it should be added to 0.5.x
