Samuel Pajilewski <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: lgpl
Other License: 
Package: Web Oriented Resources Management
System name: worm
Type: non-GNU

The main purpose of this project is to help system administrators to create, 
modify, integrate and fashion Pages for Enterprise Resource Management.

It is a Web Oriented Project, based upon PHP, HTML, XML, CSS and JavaScript, 
using a Database with abstraction on which system Database we can use (The 
project offer a PHP Class with methodes, we can inherite a mother class for 
using another Database. I have currently developped the PostgreSQL Class 
components but we can easily develop others classes for MySQL, Oracle or other 

Through a Web interface, generated in PHP and using an available Theme to 
display elements, the user must be identified (thanks to PHP sessions,  if the 
main session variable is not set and if the password does not match the user 
equivalence, the user is automatically redirected to the identification form).

According to the account and the level of access (there is lot of different 
functions granted to user, like Administrator, Software developpers, Accounting 
department...), we can use the available modules to use some Pages available.

Currently, the main core of the project is developped : We can manually 
generate Pages, add a module (Require modifying the catalog file containing the 
module - this catalog file could be replaced with an XML file afterward -, 
modifying the file responsible to dipslay the dynamic menu managed in 
JavaScript, and create the directoty hosting the module), Add an user, add a 
function, add a Theme, add a Dictionary (Since the project can be used throug h 
the world, it uses a system to allow user to choose different dictionnary. 
Afterwards, it will be managed thanks to XML).

Each time we add a module, the dynamic module is automatically updated 
according to the current session. 

I plan to release an usable version of the project in the 0.1x branch, since 
there is a lot of work to do, like completing the documentation, clarify the 
codes, and drop redundancies.

 This project does not require any specific Operating System, even if now, this 
is only plainly usable with Linux since I use the shell_exec function in PHP, 
that is not really portable. Afterward I will develop a specific (abstract) 
class that will allow user to inherit from her to develop a class to a specific 

I don't have any URL to provide since I don't have any secure Web edmplacement 
to put my project. So if you would like to take a look on the code, I can send 
it you through email. This is an already big project. I need also to remove 
some files and images that does not meet your requirements (I may have 1 or 2 
GIFs in use, I am going to replace it with PNG images).

The software use PHPDocGen and JPGraph that are, in my opinion, free of charge.

Other Software Required:
The software does not contain any proprietary codes. However, I was delighted 
to provide the user automated installer developped in different ways, like GTK, 
QT and Java

Since I need Java Swing in the installer (Installer are notre already 
developped but the conception is nearly completed), I will not host the 
installer at savannah.

Other Comments:
I am not a Licence jurist or evangelsit, so I would like to point out an issue 
(in relation with savannah) :

 - In the first steps of my development and conception, I was delighted to 
provide the user no charge concerning the licence of their self developped 

As the core is (?)GPL, any modification brought in the core must be 
distributed. But I don't really know what are the conditions concerning the 
module developped by a third person/company that will use the core methods to 
develop their modules.

As they must change one or two files to inegrate their modules (Modules Catalog 
Files) I don't know if I can provide the developper a free conditions 
concerning the licence of the modules. 

Could you help me please ?
