Good afternoon gentlemen.
A quick thanks for creating Gnotime. I have looked around for project
management / time tracking types of solutions and Gnotime has really
helped me out a lot. You guys got the balance of some critical features
absolutely right, for example, why have a time tracking tool if a
billing report could not be generated?
Very nice, your effort is greatly appreciated.
I have been also looking deeper into a purely Linux / open source based
business process solution stack, and have found that while many
individual solutions to many individual problems are solved, there is no
uniform approach taken to building discreete and independent projects on
a framework that would allow for interoperability between the various
solutions (outside of the solutions being open source and as such some
type of glue may be possible in hacker tradition).
Somewhere down the line I will need to tie in GNOTIME with other
applications, and what my current research seems to show is that a
framework along the lines of what the guys at
http://www.gnuenterprise.org are doing would be the best approach.
While I have not given the issue of porting GNOTIME to the GNUE
framework my fulltime attention, I was wondering if I could get your
opinion on this matter.
What I would like to hear from you is, especially since you have already
written GNOTIME and are experts in that particular tool/solution, would
GNUE be a valid approach to porting GNOTIME to a framework to allow
GNOTIME information to be shared with a greater solution stack?
Can you offer any insight on what the gnue.org project is doing right or
wrong, and what in your opinion would be the best way to approach
getting GNOTIME to share information with other parts of a greater
business solutions stack (afterall, GNOTIME is not necessarily a
separate solution from something like project management or accounting
soultions, it's simply a discrete way of dealing with a particular
subset of the business management problem)?
Being that we are talking about open source, I am certain that this type
of project has been considered before, can you offer any insight on what
has been either tried or just talked about and what the results of these
initiatives have been? Have they succeded, failed, not started? Any
insight on why?
Once again, my thanks for creating GNOTIME. It's such a great tool
right now that I know I will haveto tie this into a bigger picture - as
demands on me grow I will need to share data from GNOTIME between
accounting, project management and other tools, and seeing as you are
the experts on GNOTIME already, your input on the above would be
extremely helpfull. I want to make sure I do my research before
beginning the long road to building some of these tools, I want to do it
