[Koha-devel] Naming Conventions

Hi all,

A while back, I posed a question to these lists asking what the
naming conventions were in your library for referring to patrons/
borrowers/users/etc. Thank you all for responding! The overwhelming
majority of you said that you use the term 'patrons' most frequently.
As a result, I suggest we change the naming convention within Koha's
default templates to represent that majority.

Some of you had feedback on other naming conventions as well. For
instance, several said that 'check-out' and 'check-in' were preferred
terms over 'issue' and 'return'. I've gotten the same feedback from
quite a few libraries in my demos around North America. So, I'd also
like to propose we adjust the default templates to reflect that

Of course, with our flexible translation framework, it's a fairly
trivial procedure to change the wording in your local installation,
if you prefer the current conventions.

Any objections?
