Alan - Im glad you haven't forgoten.  It time for me to get back to vufind.  I have already made a bunch of committs today.  I will be checking in my local mods into a development branch.  Then we can start to look at the myresearch module modifications.

Hello Bill,

Don't throw away the X-Server, it works pretty good.

As soon as some decisions are made to standardize the interface for the
Driver interface between VUFind and the various ILS systems I'm ready to
submit what I have for the Aleph Driver.

At this time I've had to customize the code heavily because of
parameters I need and differences in what is available to display from
Aleph. I really don't want to maintain a separate branch, it is a real
pain when modifications are added and when I want to submit a patch.

We are in production with our version and I'll actually be setting up
another Aleph implementation soon.

I've been sitting here quietly waiting for answers to some questions
I've entered. I will then need to modify the code to whatever the
standard becomes. At that time I will happily submit code.
