2013-10-30T16:02:43  &lt;joar> OpenERP seems promising, I just need to navigate launchpad
2013-10-30T16:02:56  &lt;joar> trying to find the source code
2013-10-30T16:06:48  &lt;bkuhn> joar: I'm dubious about openERP myself.
2013-10-30T16:07:02  &lt;bkuhn> I tried it for use for Conservancy for three months once back in 2008 (before I solidifed on Ledger)
2013-10-30T16:07:10  &lt;bkuhn> it was highly problematic
2013-10-30T16:07:13  &lt;bkuhn> for various reasons.
2013-10-30T16:07:20  &lt;bkuhn> joar: Also, it's a proprietary relicensed codebase.
2013-10-30T16:07:33  &lt;bkuhn> I think if we were to go with OpenERP, we'd want to prefer Tryton, which is a fork of OpenERP
2013-10-30T16:09:43  &lt;joar> their codebase seems GPL, but it's hard to get an overview
2013-10-30T16:09:51  &lt;joar> I'll look into it
2013-10-30T16:15:49  &lt;bkuhn> joar: I think you'll find it's completely copyrighted by one entity.
2013-10-30T16:15:53  &lt;bkuhn> and they require copyright assignment on patches, IIRC
2013-10-30T17:01:34  &lt;joar> bkuhn: I'll quote this discussion in the article and move on to tryton.
2013-10-30T17:01:41  &lt;bkuhn> ok.
2013-10-30T17:02:01  &lt;bkuhn> joar: please note that it's entirely possible OpenERP changed their policies at some point.  It's unlikely, but it's possible.
2013-10-30T17:02:21  &lt;joar> I've been trying to find out details
2013-10-30T17:02:28  *** vmargarita has joined #npoacct
2013-10-30T17:02:32  &lt;joar> asked in the #openobject channel, no reply this far
2013-10-30T17:02:44  &lt;joar> I'll include your disclaimer
