        I think we should better wait for final decisions related to enrolment changes

        What exactly does that mean Petr? Will the enrollment changes affect 1.9 or is this all 2.0? If this is 2.0 then we would reimplement all of these changes in 2.0 as well once the enrollment changes happen. Holding off on implementing these changes to wait for 2.0 doesn't seem to make sense.

        thanks for DIFF patch.

        suggest following changes, the "enrol_dbtable" be changed to...
        enrol_dbtable_FROM
        also adding
        enrol_dbtable_WHERE

        do the same thing as above to "enrol_coursetable"

        adding ability to choose "date format" that is in external database for each of the 3, date fields.

        adding ability to set "enrol_student_unroll_id_field" (much like local user role field), but option, to either UN-enroll students completely from course, or change there roles to this role in the external database. Plus, there should be another enrol_unenroll_field, for a per course basis. of either un-enrolling or changing role in course.

        for rhyme and reasons see http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=129964 granted i am dealing with oscommerce, but functionality can spill over to multi other third party software with the more advance functionality.

        It would be great if the language file specified what time format the Start Date and End date fields where expecting.

        Hello,

        there is a new enrol/database for some time, the functionality was split into tow parts - enrolment and course creation. I personally think it would be much easier to create a new enrol/coursedb contrib plugin that does only the course creation/update part.
