Package: gnumoney

Develop a web based accounting system for small to medium sized companies.

I run a small company in the UK, developing free software. We have the core of 
a UK accounting system which I would like to offer to a wider audience and 
develop further:

- adapt it to different national accounting requirements
- add new features (inventory control, payroll) 
- fix bugs and polish existing features

The current software is a java \"webapp\". A webapp requires a Java Servlet 
engine to run. The FSF have a servlet engine called Paperclips (also a savannah 

The webapp also requires a SQL database. Currently I use PostgreSQL; mainly 
because I like it. I would like to explore making the software as database 
neutral as possible.

If you accept this as a project I would like to call it GNUmoney - pronouncing 
it \"new money\". This is a pun on MSMoney and a joke about social class, money 
and technology (at least here in the UK).
