These projects have been rejected temporarily (i.e., evaluation is on hold)
 
because of some issue that seems unresolvable at the moment, but may be
 
resolved at a later date and will remove the blocker of looking more closely
 
at the project.
 
   
 
## Projects Rejected
 
<a id="rejected"></a>
 

	
 
These projects have been evaluated as part of this effort and rejected, both
 
for a basis of this project or for any code reuse.  A few of the primary
 
reasons are given on this page, but the whole evaluation can be read on the
 
linked page.
 

	
 
* [[ExistingProjects/Frontaccounting#final-eval]]
 
  * Straight PHP with no framework
 
  * Data model somewhat messy, accounting not clearly separated.
 
  * Only one or two developers.
 
  * Workflow not easily configured.
 
* [[ExistingProjects/GNUEnterprise]] 
 
> GNU Enterprise is not a Finance/ERP/Accounting software (yet). While the original project goal was to create exactly that, the maintainers at that time decided that as a first step, good development tools for database centered applications should be created. The focus of development then was strongly on these tools, and while they are to a certain extent usable to actually create database applications, further development in the project has come to a halt because most (all) developers shifted their energy to other projects.
