This conversation started week ago, when I said "gnucash
cannot use gnomedb because it offers the wrong set
of database abstractions". I have no intention of using
gnomedb in its current form, because it simply doesn't do
the things we need it to do. It was then asked "why is
gnomedb inappropriate for gnucash" and I attempted to explain
If you listened, you would realize that our software is crap.
Its got many serious problems. My flaming is in reaction to
the word "share", which, in this chain of letters, seems to
mean that I should rip out everything I have and replace
it by whatever it is you have, while you lean back and chalk up
If you were really interested in sharing, you'd download
bonddb and qof and dwi and gnue, and play with them a bit,
and figure out how they work, and ask some questions about
the database concepts that those packages employ. But I
get the sense that your too busy to even bother with this.

Ahh, and my time is valueless? I have spent three hours a morning
for a whole week working this email thread. You didn't ask any
precise questions, and I responded with very long replies,
virtually all of which were ignored.

I still can't find the libmergeant documentation. Its not there.
I looked. Its just a user's guide.
The requested URL /docs/mergeant/doc/ was not found on this server.
