--- Comment #39 from Jacek Ablewicz <[hidden email]> ---
For "real" merge usage case (merging two different authority records), if the
merge gets postponed, when merge() is called later by the cron job, authority
record with $mergefrom ID is no longer there (it got deleted from the database
by authorities/merge.pl script ?). This search in postponed merge() call
my $authfrom = Koha::Authorities->find($mergefrom);
will fail, and $authtypefrom | $auth_tag_to_report_from | @record_from would be
empty. I.e.: old authority record heading, stored in the merge requests table
will never be used.
(but there is a strong possibility I'm very much mistaken about that,
authorities-related code got changed quite a lot lately).
