Subject: Saw your older SQL-Ledger posts
I came across some older SQL-Ledger posts from 2002 and, based on my
experience with Dieter, assumed that all didn't go well. I thought it
might be worth letting you know of a community-centric fork of
SQL-Ledger which has been gaining momentum called LedgerSMB.
The initial goal of LedgerSMB was to essentially offer something like
SQL-Ledger with better security, data integrity controls, and so
forth. We forked about six months ago when Dieter decided not to fix a
gaping security hole (he did fix it after we forked), and we have been
gaining momentum ever since. Evidently we are seen as a threat
because he summarily changed the license of SQL-Ledger away from the
GPL for version 2.8.0.
Anyway, I am not sure if you are still interested in being involved in
an open source accounting program, but if you are, please check us out
And we welcome user contributions, big or small.

You must be a stupid engineer then, because politcs and technology have been attacted at the hip since the 1st dynasty in Ancient Egypt. I guess you missed that one."
