PTFS Acquires LibLime (for real this time)

So yesterday at about 4 pm, Heather comes into the Lab, where Mickey and I were working on mapping Osage City’s data for a May migration, and tells us that PTFS bought LibLime.  She heard about it as a lurker in the #kohakansas irc channel.  Wow…

We are still processing this information and gathering as much information as we can.  So far, we have the PTFS  press release and an LJ article and we are waiting for more feedback on the koha email list.

It’s apparent that an important indicator of the future will be the koha.org v. koha-community.org issue.  One is basically proprietary at this point and the other is under the care of the Community.

I’m doing my best to be patient and optimistic.  What we really want is a working, up-to-date ILS.  I don’t think that’s asking for too much and I’m sure we’ll get it in time.  In the mean time, we have a library to migrate.
