Bug Description

From the commit:

Adds support for sending auto-overlay-1match and auto-overlay-best-match in addition to auto-overlay-exact to Vandelay when performing imports. If no strategy is chosen, the script still defaults to auto-overlay-exact.

These changes are managed with 3 new command line options:



Without this addition, only supports exact-match (auto-overlay-exact) imports.;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/user/berick/marc-stream-importer-match-strategy

Pushed another commit to support --import-no-match, which was previously assumed to always be true.

NOBLE has been using this version of to load electronic resource marc records into our production system. We are able to split large files into 500-record chunks and then use a shell script to invoke marc_stream_importer for each file. It's great to have a command-line alternative to Vandelay when you want to load files hands-off.

If Martha is successfully testing this at her site, maybe she can help with the signoff on this work. Maybe later this week.

Though, marking "incomplete" because I think we need release notes for this new feature.
