webERP Administration and Roadmaps

webERP is currently administered by Phil Daintree and Tim Schofield. We really could do with some help though and looking for others with skills in any of the following functions:

We, as with most open source developers, are both voluntary and offer our services on the clear understanding that we are NOT responsible for your installation and that the software is offered and used without warranty etc as per the GPL version 2.

Suggestions for improvement are certainly encouraged but most of all we welcome development work done in accordance with the development guidelines against the latest CVS code. Bringing development work in that was made against older code is more difficult and if you wish to be in a position to use later versions of webERP with the new functionality made available with each release it pays to be pro-active in donating the development work you've done back to the project.

Development Philosophy - Road Map

Note this is a personal statement of Phil Daintree's and not necessarily the view of Tim Schofield the other project admin of webERP

I want to use webERP to help businesses and to develop useful software. Obviously, software that is useful has a value and businesses are prepared to pay for this work. To ensure that my work is useful I want to work with businesses with specific needs and for which they are prepared to pay for - on the understanding that it goes into the project in return for my charging a reduced fee. This is a win-win, since :

It follows from the above circumstances that I am not able to publish a road-map for my development because different roads get taken depending on what developments businesses wish to sponsor. If you have a road-map for development you require and are prepared to sponsor - then please do let me know. I am not sure how Tim's development agenda works.

Work that is donated to the project I will include provided it does not compromise the ContributingtowebERP goals of the project and coding conventions - if it compromises the coding conventions I will make an honest attempt to convert it to be consistent with the existing code base. In practise there are a number of reasons why code contributions to webERP have been limited:

The "Road Map" for webERP is up to the reader then - anywhere you want to go... subject to the caveats above !
