The German Linux Magazin of the October 2000 edition has an article
about a GPL ERP/accounting system in development "QtTudo". It's
on sourceforge too. I am not the person to describe its intentions and
features, but if it should be something Akopia wants to have more
info about, may be Racke could help out by giving his
opinion and more detailed description about it. It uses only SQL92
Standard and client/server capable SQL dbs, for the time being Postgres
SQL. Maybe it could also use MaxSQL, the extension announced to MySQL.

As RedHat finally includes MySQL in his distribution, it would
make sense to have a look at it.

Or it is again a sensitive issue because it's a European based
development effort ?
