    A successful student should be able to complete that work about
 
    three-quarters the way through the summer, and then be able to focus on
 
    actually writing a few specialized NPO-style report using the API.  A
 
    great acid test will be to use the API to implement the
 
    [IRS required charity public support test](http://www.irs.gov/Charities-&-Non-Profits/Exempt-Organizations-Annual-Reporting-Requirements-Form-990,-Schedules-A-and-B:-Public-Charity-Support-Test).

2. Convert  [Ledger-CLI](http://www.ledger-cli.org/) to use fixed-point
 
   arithmetic.
 

	
 
   Currently Ledger-CLI uses floating point arithmetic, which is definitely a
 
   mistake for an accounting system.  This causes

      * Rework the codebase to use fixed-point arithmetic so those bugs are

3. Build a better test suite for [Ledger-CLI](http://www.ledger-cli.org/).
 

	
 
   Since this project relies so heavily on Ledger-CLI, we'd really like there
 
   to be a full test coverage for Ledger-CLI.  To do that, a student will
 
   need to be already somewhat familiar C++ and willing to learn about how to

    While this project is of primary interest to this project, it will
 
    require careful coordination with Ledger-CLI as an upstream, and we'll

4. Build a better Python interface to Ledger-CLI for use by our API.
 

	
 
   Right now, Ledger-CLI has a rather incomplete Python interface, based on
 
   [Boost.Python](http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_55_0/libs/python/doc/).
