Right. And we want more devs, isn't it?

Heh, GNUmed IS the reason why I'm taking the route of learning Python

I think we can put such things on LP as well.

I agree and some docs for potential developers would be welcome -
i.e. something explaining where one can start, what are
easy/intermediate/advanced tasks etc.

However, for that we need bug-tracker in a good shape.

What do you think about moving the present tickets from Savannah to LP
and start using for the new
features we want - it's, imho, much easier to track them than the present

Sebastian> We have coded with different guis in mind. 

That's nice to hear.

I'll try to do that after becoming more familiar with Python.

Heh, frankly speaking, I tried several EMR applications and all were
web-based - that's why I find GNUmed interesting considering it's
possible to make much better UI with the desktop than web application.

Sebastian> There are some python bindings availabe so a pythonic

I'm leaving that for others, but I'm delighted to hear that GUI
abstraction is present. That will give us opportunity to relatively
quickly come up with the Pygtk mockup ;)

Sebastian> Let me know where you need mentoring

I'll yell when the time arrives, don't worry ;)
