[OPEN-ILS-GENERAL] Moving/Renaming Volumes - was Deleting parts map for deleted copies

Blake or anyone else,

I've finished cleaning up the parts and that went well.  Now I'm looking at a list of ~300 volumes (asset.call_number) that have been added with the wrong label.  And some of them have several variations of the wrong label for the same record and owning lib, so I cannot just rename them all, I need to transfer some copy's to different volumes after the first occurrence has been renamed.  There are enough of them that I don't want to use the staff client since that means looking up 300 volumes.

Are there any gotchas to moving copies to different volumes on the same record?  I don't think I need to worry about parts since I'm not moving to a different bib record with this fixup.

Would something like this cover it?
  Volume_id is the current call_number.id and existing_volume is the volume on the same record to move to.

    UPDATE asset.copy SET call_number = existing_volume WHERE call_number = volume_id and deleted=false;
    UPDATE action.hold_request SET target=existing_volume WHERE target = volume_id and hold_type = 'V';
    UPDATE action.aged_hold_request SET target=existing_volume WHERE target = volume_id and hold_type = 'V';
    UPDATE asset.call_number set deleted=true where id = volume_id;

I don't see any asset.uri_call_number_map entries to worry about. Or any asset.call_number_note entries.  I've looked through the asset.volume.batch.transfer method and Cat/Merge.pm , and I don't see anything else that seems to apply.

Watch out for 'P' level holds targeting your monograph_part ID's

Hello, I'm working on a parts cleanup project(EG 2.8), and I'm wondering if there are any problems with deleting entries from asset.copy_part_map for all deleted copies?  I want to purge all the parts that are not being used before I start making fixes.  Once I remove the part_map I can remove the biblio.monographic_parts that are not currently used by any copies or holds.  Are there any pitfalls that you know about?
