ASP here stands for "application service provider", which means (very 
shortened) that a
company provides hard- and software for business applications and lets other 
work on their system over the internet for a fee.
I'm sure that real ASP exports (IIRC we have some on the list) could give a 
more precise
definition, but I guess I get the basic point here :)

As most free software projects, we don't have an exact timetable, but the 
snowball is
growing faster and faster :)
We have some tiny applications already built with gnue, and the "real big one" 
currently in definition phase.

The good thing about free software development is that everybody just can do 
what he is
interested in. The same goes for you :)
As an end user, you could for example read our documentation and tell us how 
much the
system we are planning would meet your needs, which are probably the same needs 
as other
companies have.

If you are IRC-enabled, you could join us on channel 

In every case, we are happy about _every_ kind of help, especially from "real" 
people (as most of the current core team comes from the technical side rather 
than from
the business side).
