## 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.

> 
> Web Notes will only accept copyright assertions in case of a significant contribution like a whole new functionality or a major rewrite. We believe if your contribution is significant then you should have a say in what license Web Notes selects in the future and/or have a right to any revenue Web Notes gets from a Commercial License. Either ways Web Notes will have the right to decide what is a "significant" contribution.
